2 weeks, but who is counting...

until our trip to las vegas! can't wait, so much has changed since my last visit! lots of new restaurants, shopping destinations and casino/hotels.  we use to make it out to vegas every other year, but sadly i haven't been out there in 5 [or has it been 6?] years! meanwhile, my husband still manages to make it out there a few times a year for work....yeah, right! ha! ha!  until then the count down continues... tick tock!

can't wait to pack my bags and get out of chicago!

yesterday i made it over to chicago to fill up my SUV. i have to tell you, good thing i didn't wait until EMPTY to fill up! my SUV takes 22 gallons and i filled up with only 15.60 gallons....SUCKS and this was CostCo price, which was only $3.86/gallon!

what are gas prices near you?

we are officially over the $4.00 mark here! thank god for CostCo, their prices have NOT reached that dreaded $4.00 mark! not good for a household w/2 SUVs! i remember when i first bought my SUV and could fill it up for $34.00...those were the days!

yesterday, i was also craving macaroons. so i stopped by a local bakery and bought these:
i have to tell you i was VERY disappointed! oh well, at least i know NEVER to order macaroons from this place again, which is ODD b/c i love everything else about this place! oh well, check out some of the treats they had on display last night....yum!

so did anyone make it over to  one kings lane  for the preppy plates SALE event?  the sale is still going on in case you missed it!

super excited...i ended up ordering both the tray and set of coasters in the ARBOR pattern below.  

i actually saw both of these items this past saturday over at all she wrote. glad i held off buying anything, ended up saving myself some $$$ ordering from one kings lane ...yeah!

  1. I have never been to Vegas but I have always wanted to do a girls trip...I am not big on gambling but the shopping I could do! xx

  2. gas here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area is about 3.65/gallon! It' is horrible. It cost me $30 just to top my tank off the other day and I was almost full!

  3. love your bags/luggage :)....obsessed with costco. Its the best

  4. My friend just left for Vegas today and I wish I was with her. You will have so much fun on your trip.
    John gases the cars up so I don't know what the price is today but the other day he said it cost me $100 for fuel to go to MP and back....yuck.

  5. Ahhh...I love Vegas! I've only been there once, but I can't wait to go back. I have vacation coming up later this month and I'm pretty excited too.

    Gas is getting really out of control. It's about $3.70/gallon here in Philly.
