Versatile Style by Tracey


Posted on: May 26, 2015

I really wanted to do a wonderful well written post of our trip to Vegas, but alas my head is really somewhere else. 

You see, coming home to a new bedroom and bathroom has sparked a serious purge and clean up of all drawers, closets and rooms.  This is long overdue.  I am staying up late every night sorting and redoing everything.  It’s a process that will take me a while.  

Readers have you heard of the Konmari Method, that’s what I’ve been doing to my drawers.  

Now on to some Vegas Pictures!


This was the view from our room at Hard Rock Hotel, I wish we had actually spent time at the pool.

Hindsight is 20/20 and if I ever go back to Vegas again, I would spend all day hanging out at the pool, and going out only in the evenings. I pushed myself so hard because there was so much I wanted to see for my first time there!  


Cirque du Soleil- Michael Jackson, was our first night’s activity and it was Fantastic. 

There was every nationality on stage and even the famous one legged dancer.. Anyone know his name? 

My absolute favorite part of the show was when they had a hologram of Michael dancing with the artists.  

I literally got chills!  The buildup to the the ending was wonderful, each time we thought it was the finale, we were surprised that they could up the ante.   


Sunday was time to explore some hotels , my husband had stayed at Caesar’s on a previous trip and couldn’t wait to show me why he loved this one.  

I must say I am so happy that my husband followed my lead and bought this wonderful slim fit linen shirt at Old Navy.  He is embracing color more, with my nudging. 


I loved this part of Caesar’s shopping area, it is even more beautiful on person. 

Not the best photo of me, but I have to note my new Aerosoles, bought in Vegas. 

There were two shoe styles I noticed Wedges and metallic flat sandals.


I hate selfies, but my husband insists on taking these up close ones..

I had the worst sinus issues in Vegas, waking up with terrible swelling in my eyes and a dry nose and throat.  


Alas, my picture in the room, didn’t turn out great, so here is Dear Husband!  


Sunday night was the Neil Diamond concert and I have to say he did not disappoint! 

The concert was everything I could have dreamed!  

I only cried once in memory of my mother at about the third song in when he sang , “Hello, Again” 

This venue was huge, like a football stadium, there really was something amazing about all of us on our feet singing ,

“Sweet Caroline”. 

He sang one song off his new album and I bought it, but haven’t even listened to it, yet!  


Monday, we had intended on a lazy pool day, but alas it rained!  

We got a late start, before heading out to the Mirage’s Secret Garden to see the dolphins and Big Cats. 

I love dolphins and read “A Ring of Endless Night” series a dozen times as a child. 


I was lucky to get this shot, as the Jaguar wasn’t very cooperative..


This white lion was our favorite.  Watching him walk was something else.  

The word that came to mind was “lumbering’  

He made eye contact with my husband, and kept it up, even making noises at him like a conversation. 

He was lucky to get that on video tape. 


My edema on my eye was pretty bad this day….

I am sporting my new Neil Diamond shirt and fedora , bought at Charming Charlies. 


These hotels really are so fantastic and worth exploring, at least in my book. 

I swear I walked so much this trip and was tired at the end of each day. 


The Bellagio water fountain show with music was so much fun, we stayed for two songs and it was worth it! 


My appreciation for the hand painted glass is elevated since I have a friend who works with glass. 


This picture does not do these glass flowers in the Bellagio lobby, by artist Dale Chihuly, justice. 


This beauty is $45,000!!!!! 


Our final day , we went to check out the Mob Museum 


I thought this picture of how women made bloomers to help with Prohibition was funny!  


We had both never been to a Madam Tussauds, before…

Tom striking a pose!  

Notice the coral shorts with navy top he is sporting, progress!  


Sandra Bullock has our vote for the most realistic


I couldn’t resist, after all, I was sporting a fedora!


Of course a Vegas one wouldn’t be complete without them!


Our final activity of the trip was a Gondola ride.  

I have to say it was more fun than I thought, our guy was funny. 

We made a huge impression on him, when he asked my husband if he knew any Italian.  

He went on to say, “There are only two words you need to know, Olive Garden.”

I burst out laughing and told the story of how Tom met me in a bar, then came to Olive Garden where I was working and picked up a second job (he was in the Navy). 

Our guy told my  husband, he had game!  He says his generation is so lame.  

He will remember the couple from Virginia , every time he tells his Olive Garden joke!
