Wondering about the title? Basically, it's a microcosm of the week. Tons of questions, not a lot of answers. Of course it's all work related. Things are cuckoo for cocoa puffs as my friend Wendy would say. There hasn't been but an hour of OT this week so that's good. It's non stop craziness when I'm there but the day is flying by so that's good too. Trying to look on the bright side.

I was VERY excited to get these in the mail this week.
We're going to see Elton when we're in Vegas!! I was surprised to see the ticket though.
It's just a regular piece of paper. Here's a tip for you. We bought our tickets from Stub Hub. They were CHEAPER than going through Ticketmaster. We got the same seats for a total price of $240 as opposed to $450.

On the "Weigh In" front I stayed exactly the same this week. I've gotten back on track with my workouts for the most part. I didn't do anything Monday because I was nauseous when I woke up & hadn't slept well. I went to Yoglates Tuesday & Thursday. The teacher that normally teaches is on vacation in Ireland. The sub is one of the teachers that isn't my favorite because she's like 25 & a marathon runner & thinks everyone else is too. I honestly think she tried to kill us Thursday. I ran Wednesday & Friday & this morning I did my own workout. Basically, it was a short version of Yoglates. Neighbors are coming over for the game tonight & I'm making dip so I knew I had to get some sort of workout in.

Thursday night Dean & I had dinner at Gino's. This is one of those places that we don't go to very often but it's ALWAYS good. I'd bought a Groupon awhile back & it was going to expire soon. I had the seafood lasagna. OMG. Soooo good.

Last night we went with friends to Fleur de Lis Pizza. This place is basically a hole in the wall & you know what that means. AMAZEBALLS PIZZA! All they have on the menu is pizza, chips & pickled eggs. BLECH! I don't even know what a pickled egg is but I think of pickled pigs feet. Anyway, it's easily the best pizza I've ever had. It's been years since we'd been there. The secret here is to call & order your pizza when you leave the house & tell them you're going to eat there. Otherwise, you'll be waiting forever. I had the veggie pizza.
So, so, so good. It will NOT be years before we go back. If you order a large pizza they cut it in squares.
Jackie had a beer. Isn't the little glass they bring you cute?

So, that's been my week in a nutshell. Hope y'all have a great weekend. I'm going make dip.



  1. Wish I had known about the stub hub thing. I just bought Eric Church tickets for niece and nephew. Glad ot is slacking off at work! I must have missed the Vegas trip post???

  2. OMG that pizza looks amazing!! I am so craving some right now!

  3. Fleur de lis Pizza is my FAVORITE!! I have been going there since I was little and it hasn't changed a bit! We try to go there every time we come to BR, but I have never tried the calling ahead trick, will have to do that next time!

  4. Hope you have a great time in Vegas! We stayed at the Bellagio and I loved it! Looks like a great concert. So glad for you that it's on the strip. So much easier to get to.

  5. I'm definitely going to have to check out Stub Hub!
