I'm backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk :)

Hi everyone :)

I'm back from my bloggy break ... aka our family vacation :) 

If you follow me on Facebook -- you will know we just got back from California and Las Vegas :) 

I wanted to share some pics from our vacation :) 

At the Santa Monica Beach :)





After we went to the beach, we went to the Ronald Regan Museum  :)



A piece of the Berlin Wall :) 

 





Hanging out in the Oval Office ... no big deal *wink* :) 
 

A real Air Force One :) 

 


We also went to Universal Studios :) 

 


Where Brookie got to meet her all time FAVE characters :) 

 




I was also fortunate to meet some of my work business partners .... I talk to them ALL the time I the phone, and was honored to meet them in person :)

 


We went to Hollywood  (checked off the bucket list!!!!)   :)
 




Me with my hands on Harpo Marx' hand prints .... little known fact .... I am related to Harpo Marx by marriage --- one of my cousins is married to one of Harpo's daughters :) 

 



YES!!!! FINALLY saw the HOLLYWOOD sign in real life!!! Check, check, checked off the bucket list :) 

 


Next we went to Las Vegas :) 

 






And this is one of the reasons I ALWAYS SAY NO!!!!!!! when another tourist offers to take a family photo for us .... ugh ... it's all blurry!!!  :(

 


We went to Madame Tuassad's Wax Museum :) 
 



So much fun .... and now I will attempt to catch up with all of you ... I ain't gonna lie .... I follow wayyyyyyyy to many people to see all the posts I missed ... but I will check in on your latest ones :) 



Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
