20 years ago (I must have been 3 at the time) I grew my bangs out.  For the past 5 years I've toyed with the idea of cutting them...that is until the scissors are firmly grasped in the hands of my hair stylist.  Contrary to what most believe...I'm low maintenance - bangs are more work than I was willing to give.  But this time I did it...and I love it.  Yes, more work but worth husband thinks he's sleeping with a new woman. 

Vegas Girl's Trip...don't let the title fool you.

The beach area at the Tahitian Village Resort was amazing. 

shopping and girls go hand in hand.

Krispy Kreme other donut compares.

This spring the girls and I went with 3 of my girlfriends and their kids to Las Vegas.  Not exactly the kind of 'girls trip' I look forward to.  Surprisingly, we had a great time.  We did a lot of shopping, eating out and pool time.  And that's about all it takes to make me a happy vacationing girl.

The trip downer was that while there the most famous Las Vegas comedian, Danny Ganz, passed away in his sleep.  Very tragic.  

Our brush with fame was seeing Flava-Flav (high as a kite) with his signature 10" clock around his neck.  We attempted but in the end missed this photo opp.

Last day of school...brought tears.

My girls were BLESSED with the best teachers this year.  I cried when the school year ended.  We may never be that lucky again.

Ducks in our very small pond.

Can't believe they found the water feature in the backyard.  By the time I had the camera they were climbing out.  Hard to see them on top of the rock wall.
