Las Vegas - Crawfish

My husband and I went for a short get-away to Las Vegas last this month.  We decided to try a few new places off the beaten path.  We have walked the strip a million times and wanted to explore local Las Vegas.

On the recommendation of a friendly local we met we went to a place called Hot N Juicy Crawfish.  We were there on a Thursday night around 5 and the place was packed.  We had to wait only about 5 minutes to be seated.

The clientele were amazingly diverse.  Everyone was having a great time getting messy.  The draw is their tasty crawfish.  You buy it buy the pound and it comes with either a potato or a cob of corn.  No fancy plates here.  Your order is serviced in a plastic bag with a bib and plastic gloves.  Not for the faint of heart or those who hate to get messy.

The crawfish was amazing and you can customize your choice of sauce and hotness.  I used the house sauce.  Too delicious.

I've got to say this was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it when you are in Las Vegas.

Trying Something New

The last few months have been a bit stressful with my father passing and a crazy work load. I was at a business meeting a few months ago and mentioned to a friend that I had no energy. He mentioned a product that he was taking and stated that he would put me in touch with the vendor if I was interested.

Needless to say the sales person contacted me and I am now taking a vitamin product called Vemma. The cost is higher than I would normally pay but I am going to give it a go.

I have read a lot of negative reviews on this product but mostly about their multi-level marketing program. I am not interested in selling this product but will give it a trial run.

I am only on day two but will keep you posted on if I think this product is worth the cost.

It is a liquid vitamin product that I will be taking every morning. It has a very pleasant fruity taste.

I am also about to embark on a bodily self improvement program for myself. I need to get active and lose quite a bit of weight. I may be taking this product in conjunction with a new diet.

I am a person with not a lot of willpower when it comes to food and exercise. This will be a challenge. (Wish me luck). I will keep you posted.

Monkey Business

I am not sure when it all started but a few years ago I started exchanging birthday cards, Christmas cards and other cards with my sister in Wisconsin. For some reason I got stuck on Monkey themed cards and then she started sending them to me.

I don't really even like monkeys except for the speak no, see no, hear-n0-evil kind.

I once knew a girl who kept monkeys for pets. They were mean and the stunk. They got out once and as she tried to catch them and put them back in their cages they scratched the crap out of her. They were loud and did I mention STINKY?

But now I have a monkey curse and I see them EVERYWHERE!

Beer drinking monkeys, monkeys with pee pees, monkeys on buildings holding bananas and wearing coon skin hats. Yikes.

OMG. I may have been scarred in 1970. O.K. I admit monkeys make me laugh except for the ones who rip your face off.

There goes my weekend

I've just discovered this live webcam from Iowa with a pair of eagles and their chicks. I cannot stop watching it. Click here for the link.
