Day Two!

July 17, 2008

It has been a long day....I think the time difference is starting to catch up with me a little bit. I got up super early this morning had some coffee and decided to head out to the pool......we were expecting thunderstorms this afternoon, so we decided to make the most of the morning.

We came in for lunch at the Red 8.....incredible asian food.....Dim Sum and Pad Thai. Unfortunately I had a severe allergy attack that started right before lunch....my right eye swelled up and kept tearing, then I started with congestion.....not sure of what I had come in contact with, I immediately got some benadryl and went straight for the hotel room to lie down. I quickly realized that I had worn a very cute bathing suit cover up that I borrowed from my friend Shelly. She has 2 cats that hang out in her closet....guess who's allergic to cats? So I had a rough afternoon.....the benadryl knocked me out, but that is OK.....it poured all afternoon so I didn't miss any valuable pool time.

Pat has done quite well at the Black Jack tables.....now I just have to keep him away so that he does not give back all the money he won!

We went to see Danny Gans at the Mirage.....he was wonderful......an amazing comedian who does impersonations. After the show we had dinner at another one of Em.erils restaurants.....this time we went to his Steakhouse....Delmonico's. After last night's meal I could not do anything to heavy, so I went for the scallops....they were to die for! We also were given a tidbit while there.......Emer.il is coming in to Vegas tomorrow and will be at Delmonico's.......I think we might go back just to see him. We have reservations for a sushi restaurant, but we might have to pass it up.

Nick would just die if I could get an autograph from Eme.ril.....he is a big fan.

On tomorrows agenda......shopping and spa time!





Here is the culprit of the nasty allergy attack....this cute little coverup must have picked up the cat dander and when I put it on over my head......let's just say the end result was not pretty!
I wouldn't take off the old sunglasses all day! Pat took this picture of me first thing this morning....before the allergy attack obviously!

It sounds like you are having a wonderful time despite the cat allergy.

PS. You look terrific in that black dress.

That sucks! Poor you! Think of it this way, just gives you an excuse to go shopping and find another cover up! You did look fab in that one though!

Thank goodness your eye is ok and that it doesn't interfere with Vegas to much... hehehe... Ask Emeril for me about a good Seafood Gumbo recipe... hehehe... take care... BAM!!!!

My sister always says, "Suffer for fashion" however I think that the swollen eye in this case might defeat the purpose. I hope you're feeling better!

Kerry said...

Oh NO! those darn cats. At least you didnt miss too much pool time.

Hope you enjoy tonight's dinner and the spa. Get dessert to make up for today!
