Las Vegas


I have been very slack lately and though I have been writing, I have not been blogging. I am dropping in to tell you my latest news. I am off to Las Vegas on 6th March for the Epicon conference. I will only attend the Awards Banquet on Saturday night because I am a finalist in the EPPIE Awards. Las Vegas is too exciting to be cooped up in a room all day, so instead my sister, my friend and I will be enjoying the sights including a flight to the Grand Canyon and of course we will be taking in a show - Cher. Should be spectacular. We'll also spend a night and a day in LA so I can go to Disneyland for the third time. Can't wait - I am just like a kid at a fun fair. Will be away six days, then back home to work and reality.

Suzanne, I am hoping we can speak by phone when you are in the states. I have a calling card.

You'll have a FANTASTIC and well-deserved trip. Enjoy, dear.

What a beautiful photo and post.:D

Hugs, Nancy

A flying visit indeed, Suzanne. Six fun-packed days - phew!

Everything crossed for a great result at the Eppies :)

How exciting, Suzanne. I've never been to Vegas but I love Disney.

Knock their socks off at the Eppie's and fly home with that award!!!

(p.s, a calling card is A) a card you can use anywhere for long distance or B) A discount pre-paid card for long distance. Either way, I soooo hope you and Blueberrie have the opportunity to chat. I know how fond she is of you)

Break a pen..or a keyboard...or whatever the proper 'break' is to win that Eppie!!!

Suzanne Perazzini said...

I'm looking forward to it, Toni. Keep those fingers crossed - this could be tough.

I'll try my best to bring that award home but no promises, Lainey. Thanks for the information on calling cards. I'm sure Nancy and I will manage to talk. I wish she were closer and I'd take a side trip to see her.
We will meet one day.

Suzanne, I have a calling card so I can call you for in the states free. It was paid for as a gift. :D

How are you doing today? Our snow is almost gone. If we don't have another snowstorm we're all set, but I bet that is wishful thinking.

All is well here.

Wild wave to Raine and Lainey!

Hugs, Nancy

Suzanne Perazzini said...

A free call? That sounds like a great gift. We'll have to sort out our timing.

Your snow certainly melts quickly when the temperatures rise. It must be so good to see those first signs of spring. We are still stifling hot here with extremely high humidity.

Fingers crossed for you, Suzanne!!!!

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Thanks, Erica. It's just an excuse for a trip really.

Wild wave, Suzanne. We're in another snowstorm with howling winds. But Jeff and I are watching movies. Just finished the Disney movie, "The Last Flight of Noah's Ark".

Have a super evening!!! It's getting closer to the time we can talk on the phone. :D

Hugs, Nancy

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Hi Nancy. As you know, watching movies is one of my favorite activities so I envy you, though not for the snowstorm.
Only a couple of weeks now and I'll be up, up and away.

Suzanne

You're probably busy getting yourself packed. I look forward to hearing about your trip!

Suzanne Perazzini said...

2 more sleeps, Heather. I'm all ready to go right now but have to wait. I'll let you know how it went after I return.

Suzanne

Nature Nut /JJ Loch said...

Dropping by for a wild wave, Suzanne. Enjoy Vegas and the Grand Canyon. :D

Hugs, NaNCY

Suzanne Perazzini said...

Hi Nancy. I'll email you when I get to Vegas so we can arrange to talk. Looking forward to it.

You need to tell us of your impresions of the Grand Canyon.
