I’m home, in case y’all haven’t figured that out. 😆 The Only and I made it home about 1 a.m. Monday morning. I slept in until almost 10 Monday and dragged @$$ all freaking day. *sigh* Of course, having 500+ emails to wade through, plus 130 blog entries.
We left a bit before noon on Friday, arrived a bit after noon in Vegas–gotta love the two-hour time difference. 😆 Coming home, we left at 7:30 p.m. and arrived after midnight so 😛 On the trip out, we shared a row with a darling young lieutenant on a mission of romance. Ladies, there are still keepers out there! Gentlemen, let your romantic side show. Trust me, it’s a quick way straight to our hearts. Why yes, he will appear as a hero in a book one of these days. Why do you ask? 😉
The Only and I landed, retrieved our luggage, found our way to the car rental center, picked out a Toyota Camry, and installed Jack. Jack is my Australian car boyfriend. His last name is Garmin. With his help, we found the Sunset Station Hotel and Casino easily, got checked in, and went for a late breakfast because…protein! And the Grand Cafe serves breakfast 24/7. 🙂 After food, we registered and Only got to work taking pictures. She’s producing a photo CD so in a week or two, I’ll have AMAZING photos to share! In the meantime, here’s two I snapped with my iPhone. I’m such a social media dud. I forget to actually take pictures, tweet, or FB events. I’m too busy enjoying.
Friday night was the wine-tasting meet and greet or the trip to Hunk Mansion to see the male strippers. Only and I opted for the quieter evening. The wine was good, company even better, and our own Knights were in attendance. I did FB some pics of that.
Saturday, after a much too early start, we had a full day of panels, intimate chats, and then the costume party and banquet. There will be pictures. Eventually. No, seriously. Once again, social media failure on my part. Sunday was the book signing, fond farewells, and for Only and me, a trip to Hoover Dam. Where I tripped. Over a poorly painted curb around a walkway. Yeah. Knees, hands, and wrist. Did you know that airline barf bags make excellent ice packs? Southwest Airline flight attendants rock! I’m still in the Ace bandage but I can sort of type.
The good news is, I plan to start knocking out words on CHRISTMAS MOON, especially since that word count over there needs to be reset to zero. I promise to add more moments from HMK too, but I’d rather illustrate them. Oh, and I have swag. Much swag to share–here and on FB. 😀
So…how was your weekend and what is your week shaping up to be? And have you ever had a spectacular trip? 😉
