Errr hello

Yes people I am still here!

Having/ had a bit of a crazy October!

Had a fab holiday in Atlanta and Vegas at the beginning of the month... WHAT to say about Vegas - well I couldn't write enough that's for sure.

I went wanting not to like it
I was surprised by the amount of building work going on in the strip
I was amazed by some of the hotels... WOW! doesn't quite grab it - especially the Ballagio fountains!
We managed to get some tickets to see Bett Midler in her reopening night.. BLINKIN AMAZING!
I didn't loose any money at the casino - I didn't win any either... although i did have fun on the blackjack table (I did like the free booze!)
I am still astounded by the Grand Canyon - heli trip is the way to see it for sure!
I left having loved the place
..... I will return I'm sure!

Have been back home nearly two weeks and catching up with work - it's been hectic....

AND THEN THERE's this little trip I got planned for next week...

All I'm going to say is

A-L-O-H-A!

Yes yours truly is off to Hawaii for a few days (like 19hours travel each way for a three day work conference... OH MY!)

BUT don't worry I haven't forgotten about the tri-thing.. I have some plans forming for next season already....

and in between I'm going to enter my local half marathon which is in early Feb.. YEAH.. the training starts in earnest when I get back... (and I will do a live blog weigh in.. GULP!)

ON another note entirely...... I've lost a fellow blogger... their page has like disappeared - it's weird when that happens ....

Right I'm off to think about packing my grass skirt etc!

    I felt the same way about Vegas. We went while I was pregnant so I couldn't drink and I don't gamble, but we still had a marvelous time. : )
