I'm Leaving for Los Vegas in the morning

carolann_z8(8)July 25, 2006

I'm flying to Los Vegas for my daughters wedding. If I win a lot of money than I'm buying everyone a plant.

Just for fun, what plant would you pick?

Well, depends on how much you won really... A 4 ft Texas Madrone Tree. PJ

I just hope you win, that would be cool
There are 2 plants that are really cool that you might like.
Can you fly plants back now?
Anyway, wooly mule ears and badlands mule ears
They are in the Aster family and their botanical name is something mollis, lol
Just have fun and tell DH that if Robert Redford comes up and wants to pay a million for a date with you, take it, lol

Good idea Jolana. He's pretty old now so his eyes may be failing and I just may look like Demi Moore to him if he squints. lol

Ahhh come on now, not EVERYTHING that happens in Vegas has to STAY in Vegas, does it? How about some pics when you return?

And as for the plant? Well duh......a MONEY tree ;). I hope you have a really great time. Nothing like a few days away from "it all" to put a fresh new perspective on things.

Hey, Carol Ann - what a blast. Hope all goes off without a hitch and you win lots of money. Don't bring anything back with you - I'll think of something really expensive to get HERE. LOL
Oh, and Barb - the ferns are still available at my house.

Well, I just got back from Vegas.

I have good news and bad news....

The good news is that I won 500 as soon as I put money in the slot machine!!!!

The bad news is.....

It was the penny machine!!!

Oh, and I lost all my winnings later!!!

The wedding was gorgeous and they said the sweetest vows.

I really didn't care for Vegas. Too hot (110 46% humidity), too many people and unless you like to drink, gamble and watch expensive live shows then stay away from there.

I'm too much of a country gal and like the outdoors more.

I forgot to say that I didn't win any money and I couldn't find Robert Redford anywhere.

What a waste....

I am glad the wedding went fine and was lovely.
The one and only time I went to Vegas, I did not like it either. Way too noisy for my ADD.
