Gift Card Winner and a Loser's Tale

How pretty is this? It was taken at the Bellagio.
The sad news is we were losers. It was a lot of fun and it was great to see Anna and Scott but the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight ruined a lot of our plans. In order for me to get cheap flights, I have to book about 9 months out. And then they scheduled the fight. It was crazy busy at a level I didn't even think possible. We were just lucky to get a room for the weekend. Friday, Saturday and Sunday were pretty much a bust. Anna and Scott brought their roommate for us to meet. He was great and I'm glad that they are all getting along.
We walked the strip for a little while on Sunday with them but it was hard to get around. I do miss Anna but it seems like she is doing well. I guess she won't be coming home.
The good news is likes Rachel from Living Better One Day At A Time the best. I'll send you an email, Rachel.
I'm standing in a mess here and I'll start posting on Monday or so. My wonderful inlaws picked DJ up from college since I didn't bother to check when he would be getting out of school when I booked the flights. DJ has been in charge of his stuff and the house since we left. Bless him, he tried. The good news is the cats are live, the closets well not so much.
Missed you,
Sonya Ann

Bloggers United

Thank you all so much for joining and making this work. So many of you are onboard(leave a comment on this post and your in). I see you visiting other people and leaving comments on their blogs and you are also linking to the other members. Thank you.
And we have had a major break through, sluggy has now named us all bloogers. That is going on our jackets for sure. Her finger stuttered  or she was hitting the liquor a little early but it is the greatest name for us.
I was wondering how people get more followers. Do you go and visit blogs from searching through other people's followers. Do you just jump around and explore? Do you ask for people to follow your blog while you are having a giveaway? What is the secret?

    Makin' It And Savin' It Sunday

    I think this might be something that I would be able to do. Or it might be something that I could convince DJ to do for with me!  Money making schemes are right up his alley! Jump over and read How to Make $750 a Month Selling Used Books! 
    So do you think DJ would like to get up nice and early every weekend and go book hunting with me at garage sales? It's quality mom and son time, right? Do you think this is why Anna moved away? Never. Have you ever done this? Did it work for you?
    Happy Sunday,
    Sonya Ann

She can make an amazing meal out of anything. I'm always in awe of her cooking talent, I could screw up fast food. Drop by and say hello.
    Happy Saturday,
