{Sunday Dessert}

the breakdown:
dress: found at Plato's closet probably around $10
shoes: Naughty Monkeys also found at Plato's $8
hair: outie nape braid with glorified mess to the side because I had 7 minutes to do my hair.

{Monday Confessional}

This really isn't a secret anymore, but worth taking note of:
Giulia now works and Great Harvest from 6a.m. to 1p.m.
She kneads dough into loaves and rounds.
She washes dishes. 
She slices and bags bread. Lots of it. 
She makes bomb.com sandwiches. Seriously, have you had a sandwich from GH? So tasty! It's all about the bread folks. Oh, and the basil-mayo isn't bad either.
She occasionally screws up the cash register. :)
So if you're in the area, stop in and say hello! (it comes with a free slice of whatever bread you want)

(everyone was quite surprised, including myself)

The Hammock Twist

He claims it felt really good on his back.
So good that he just fell asleep.
Well hello there my foxy husband who should be a model in the spare time he doesn't have.
Cabin time July 24th weekend.

{Wordless Wednesday}

Cracking me up
Just don't ever grow up P, okay?

{Wordless Wednesday}...with a lot of words.

I can't believe she's not here anymore!!!! 
Let it be known that a few moments after taking these pictures, she stood up all by herself!  We couldn't get her to do it again afterwards, but it was late and it was past her bedtime. Also- take note of the bear. David won that from one of "the claw" machines.
For those wondering why this little slice of cuteness has had more than a few appearances on the blog: this is Miss Amelia. One of our nieces. And her fam joined us in the basement for the summer. Joseph had an internship down here with a law firm. And on Friday they loaded up and headed back to Provo for the final year of law school. You guys should have just stayed Friday night. We needed to beat you in a basketball game. ;) But really, those 6 weeks went by way too fast!
This morning I wasn't greeted with Miss Millie's happy smiles, so proud of herself for having escaped Mom's watch and making it to our room. No goodnight kisses. No afternoon swims. No messy lunches. No late game nights. 
humunuh. we kind of don't know what to do without you all here anymore!

{Tipful Tuesdays}

If you're in the Vegas area, you NEED to check out We Luv Locals.
They have some pretty sweet deals. Our favorites so far have been FREE STAYS at various hotels in the valley. We decided to try out a FREE room at Sunset Station a few weeks ago. Loved it! 
We hung out by the pool and finished homework.
Went to the movies [Captain America].
Went bowling. 
Guess whose high score that is???
yes, it'S is me!!! I'll probably never score that high ever again. And David will probably never score that low. ha!
The best part was having a freezing cold room! Seriously. 
Last Tuesday David scored another FREE room at the Green Valley Ranch Resort, the Terra Verde coupon mentioned yesterday, and 2 for 1 massages at the Spa.  Can you say STEAL of a DEAL? Since we don't want to put out the gas money and all the other expenses associated with vacationing out of town, we are loving these little one night "staycations".
Can we talk about GVR? 

When we were at the pool it really felt like we were in some high class resort in the mediterranean. Or something. It was so nice.

And the spa. OH THE SPA!!! Out of this world. We have never done something like that before. It had it's own secluded pool. Jacuzzi's. Saunas. Steam Rooms. Anything that you could need/want. Luxuriousness to the extreme. We will most definitely be going back again [if we can snag another awesome deal].

Also, we went to Harry Potter. Finally! The last few months we've had all the HP's lined up in our netflix cue. David needed to watch every single one before we saw the last, wife's orders. We finished 7 part 1 a few days after the final one came out, but our schedules hadn't allowed us time to go to the theater. It was driving me crazy that I had to wait 3 weeks to see the last installment.
We both loved it! However, I was fairly distraught through it all knowing that this was the last one. It's hard to come to terms with the fact that there will be no more new HP. The books started when I was in elementary school and the Deathly Hallows came out the summer before Senior Year. That's a lot of years of looking forward to a new book or movie! I'm getting kind of teary over the fact that it's done. [ok, not really. but I really am rather emotional about the whole thing] I keep telling David he has to read the books. There's so much more to the story that you just can't get from watching a movie.
Most of the casino/hotels in the valley have movie theaters in them, so it makes it way too easy to put out money to go to the "nice movie theater". We usually just go to the "ghettodome" for $4.25.
I'm getting distracted. 
What was the point of this post again?
right. Tuesday Tip: Check out We Luv Locals!

{Sunday Dessert}...on a Monday

So, I really didn't wear this on Sunday. This Little Black number was worn to dinner on Wednesday evening. David got a half-off coupon for Terra Verde at the Green Valley Ranch Resort. yum. 
I hate waiting for the camera to take the picture, and I get a little antsy and start doing funny things. I apologize for my awkwardness.

The Breakdown:
LBD: found at Ross $15
shoes: my wedding shoes! found at Journeys, of all places, just a few days before the wedding. Rocket Dogs: $30
hair: low twist with a cute mess to the side

Just Cause!

I'm loving these pictures and want to keep them forever. So I'll put them on the blog and when these posts become pages in a book, I will have them forever:

Boys will be boys, and these boys will climb up on anything that has wheels.
I got to watch these two on Saturday afternoon.
We had fun. As always.
