LAS VEGAS


Our Home Away from Home for 5 days and nights.......Let the fun begin...





Cher was a no show...how could she? We traveled thousands of miles. Oh well, we'll have to find something else to entertain ourselves.





These two put on a FANTASTIC show. Our seats were unbelievable!! Marie is so much thinner and prettier in person. And Donny...this guy knows how to wear a pair of jeans.






Getting ready for Donny, I forgot his favorite color is purple. Dang, I actually look like I have boobs in this top. It is now my favorite!LOL

For some reason if you click on this picture and enlarge it -it looks like I have raccoon eyes! I don't know why. My eyes also look brown but they're blue. So go ahead, click away...you know you want to!!





Fern getting up close and personal with Whoopie...her wax figure that is.







Our last night we went upstairs to see Rita. She was SO funny and she even kept it clean. After, we bought her book and she came out and autographed it. She is very pretty but to me she looked like she has had work done. It's hard to explain but her face looked tight.

We had more pics but didn't want to bore you with a bunch of sight seeing pictures. We had a fabulous time. For those of you that are wondering if we won any money...no. Until the last night that is. We won some back, not all, but we didn't lose considering we didn't have to pay for our suite, meals, limos, air fair, the shows and we also had manicures, pedicures, and facials!

Talk about heaven!! Fern's boss is the BEST and I am so thankful I am her twin. They love
me too !!!

I used to work at a store in Utah in the same town as Donnie and Marie's parents lived in. One time Marie came in, I remember thinking the same thing, she's way skinnier in person than when you see her on television.

Darlene said...

WOW....looks like you all had a FABULOUS time!!!

bj said...

Hahaha...I thought for a second Whoopie was....REAL !!

bj said...

Bo and I laugh a lot as we tend to have the same kind of posts all ready to go on pre-schedule...it is uncanny sometimes....
I received a lot of my dishes from my mother when she passed away. The most beautiful and HUGH set of brown transferware from England and I gave it to my daughter. She displays it oon a shelf in her kitchen....
You will probably start buying more dishes as the years go by....they are such fun and if you see a neat set at a thrift shop, all the better!!
love, bj
(haha...the word verification on here is "stoppie"...do I need to stop buying dishes??? lol

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I've seen you around town and thought I'd come visit. My jaws are aching from the smiles and laughs!! Your post are sooo entertaining!!!!!!!!
Okay, I've got a little info to share about Donny and Marie...but don't tell anybody...when I lived in SO CAL. The Osmond's use to tape their television shows in Hollywood. Well, my BF and I use to sneak in as ice skaters to watch them rehearse and film, their shows. Ohhhhh, the fun we had!!!! We never got caught,after a while everyone actually thought we really were skaters.
Next time I'll share my Cher stories!
*Sweet Wishes*!

P.S. I've got a Parisian Give Away!
Come take a peek.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

P.S. I can't believe I forgot to tell you my Bf ended up working for the Osmond's at their Utah studio and years down the road neighbors to Marie's sis in law. Little did she know she'd be a regular guest at the annual Christmas Party! I ended up in private housekeeping at the Hotel where they housed their guests. Once again access to all those stars!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I voted for pumpkin #21! I'm jealous - Donny is a big fan of mine. I would love to see their show. Sounds like you had a great trip!

I saw that you guys like Celine Dion, well so do I and I'm getting the excitement of a life time. For my aunt's 50th we'll be going to see Celine Dion as a surprise to her. OOOhhhh I can't wait. I love her passion. I don't think it would be safe to craft with that kind of passion. I might hurt myself
