There are many reasons people come to Las Vegas… to relax, for work, to gamble, to see shows …. but my favorite has to be the FOOD!  There are so many interesting place to go and people to see in the diverse food establishments!  So when I see that the World Food Championships will be coming …. involving BBQ…. Y U M !! 

If we need a place to get away from it all —   come on ove and stop by Fremon street on Nov. 7- 10, 2013 … and you will be amazed! 





Time and Changes

Time and Changes

There it is — the house. The start of our dream. So fresh and beautiful … ready for a new life, a family to move into it and make it a home.

God bless this house … those were my thoughts as we first moved in and placed our mattress on the floor! How we have all changed since that first moment… photos of John and I from that time period make me realize how much time has passed. We were babies! But nothing more makes me realize the changes that have taken place over time as this photo does — like the pine tree!!! WOW! How is it possible that it has grown SO big in just a few years (hah! like it has been just a few years…). We are all a bit time-warped! Enjoying each day and watching each one pass faster and faster. Now when I walk into this house, I remember the blessings, the love and the power I feel when I am in it. The time and the changes have been wonderful to experience. We wish the same for our friends that visit – take a moment and just be in the house. I promise it will fill you up and give you some peace.


Heck, we admit it… we are a bit lonely. It is Spring in Las Vegas and we need some company. We thought if we made an offer to our friends and family — someone would surely visit! So, for the next 10 days … anyone who signs up to follow this blog can get 10% off a visit to our house! Come one.. come all … try your luck in Vegas before the heat sets in!! Just sign up to follow the blog and e-mail me at (using key word LUCK & the dates you wish to stay)!  I will check the calendar (it is not up-to-date on VRBO) and get right back to you! Welcome Home!
