How cool is that? Agata says: February 19th, 2013 at 6:15 am Yay for spring. Michigan is still very cold though, no signs of spring here yet. Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 9:29 am Girlfriend, how was Vegas?! Reply Agata says: February 19th, 2013 at 11:27 am It was awesome! Not very good in terms of gambling but the places I have seen were great. Me and hubby went to see the Cirque du Soleil The Beatles show, it was spectacular. We went to amazing restaurants, had an afternoon tea with little scones and finger sandwiches at Bellagio, I went to a spa for a facial. Did a lot of walking and deuce riding 🙂 All in all tons of fun, it hurt to go back and go back to work! Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 1:43 pm Sounds like you had a GREAT time. Isn’t Cirque du Soleil so cool? I watched “O” years ago and was blown away by the theatricality of it all. Plus, the performers are just so stretchy, LOL! I can barely touch my toes. Did you guys hit up any buffets? I swear the Bellagio buffet is OFF THE HOOK. Reply Agata says: February 19th, 2013 at 4:13 pm We did go to two buffets.One was a lunch buffet at The Mirage and it was good but then we also went to a buffet at Cosmpolitan, it is called Wicked Spoon and that was the best food I have ever had. Most of the dishes are served in small individual containers, like a little glasses with shrimp ceviche or a basket with fried chicken, they also have a gelato bar….It was really amazing. Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 4:34 pm I’ve heard about the Wicked Spoon! Good thing to know that it’s really all that. I need to go next time I head to Vegas. Gosh, I’m so hungry right now!

What kind of flower is in your photo. A lily? Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 9:28 am Hi Rose, I’m not sure. There was a huge tree in an outdoor mall covered with these flowers. If any botany enthusiasts happen to know what the name is, I’m curious too! Reply Rose says: February 19th, 2013 at 10:07 am Wow a tree full of these beautiful flowers! How lovely! I may have to show my botanist Mum this photo and see if she knows. I’m not sure if this grows outside in the Pacific NW. Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 1:47 pm I’ll try to take a pic of the entire tree when I head back to the mall (hopefully on Weds or Thurs). Let me know if your mom can identify it solely from the flowers. If she can, she’s a rockstar! 😀 Reply Linh says: February 19th, 2013 at 9:08 am Unfortunately, my state is still buried from Nemo. However, I can’t wait for spring and the beautiful weather! Reply Ra says: February 19th, 2013 at 9:21 am Where do you live Karen? It’s ok if you prefer not to tell. Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 9:26 am Hi Ra, Northern California in Marin County. This pic was taken in the town of Corte Madera. Reply Ra says: February 19th, 2013 at 11:02 am Lucky you, California must be a fantastic place to live. It’s not that I don’t love my London. I do! Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 1:45 pm Northern California has its perks. 🙂 Where I live is about 45 minutes north of San Francisco and it’s very suburban. I like it, but I do miss living in a city. How long have you lived in London? I visited once (back in 2005) and enjoyed it very much. Reply Brooke says: February 19th, 2013 at 4:07 pm Beautiful pictures, Karen! I think I’m going to look at them frequently on Thursday since we are expected to get 3-6 inches of snow here in Missouri! Reply Karen says: February 19th, 2013 at 4:34 pm Thanks, Brooke. It was rainy, cold and overcast here in Nor Cal this morning, but now the sun’s out, so I’ll send some virtual sunshine your way.
