Sunday Special!!

French Toast on a Sunday!

My daughters love French Toast. Has anyone every tried French Toast with Trader Joe's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread? You should try it, at least once. I have always loved using Kings Hawaiian Sweet Bread but this time I thought to give Trader Joe's a chance.

Follow the recipe from Kings Hawaiian Sweet Bread:

4 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 t. vanilla
1/4 t. cinnamon (I just put a dash of it in, because the bread has cinnamon in it)

Mix well with a whisk.

I love this double burner pan! I got it for Christmas from my daughters...hmmm, I wonder why they got it for me. Maybe for this reason!

Ready for a Sunday Special? I am. Have a wonderful Sunday everyone :o)

Leaving Las Vegas

Paris Hotel - Las Vegas Strip

This picture was taken on our last night in Las Vegas! We started our day off with a wonderful Hot Stone Massage and relaxed in the dry sauna with cucumbers on our eyes. Then we find out my sister's allergic to cucumbers because her eyes were puffy, red and itchy! What the heck - isn't the cucumbers suppose to take the puffiness away.....(we laughed, and I'm still laughing as I write this :o)~...) and she used half a bottle of Visine!

We had a great dinner at the Belagio Buffet. The food is awesome and the dessert is to die for! Of course we all gorged at the buffet and ate way too much! If you haven't visited the Belagio Hotel, it's a must stop!

I had a great trip with my family and now back to the grind! Till next time Lady Luck - My next trip will definitely be in the Summer time!

40 is the New 30

Happy Birthday Lani

This week I will be celebrating my younger sisters birthday. And yes you've guessed it, she has made it to the Four Zero Club!  Where better to celebrate a birthday other than Las Vegas? So, Las Vegas, here we come!

I sit back and remember the days when we were younger and we would roller skate in the back yard, ride our bikes up and down the driveway, and draw all over our driveway with chalk. Time seems to go by so fast and now we are here at 40! I can still remember my own mothers 40th birthday and then I thought, "Wow, my mom's 40, she's old!"  Well, I was wrong, 40 is the new 30!

I'd like to know ~ did you handle your 40th birthday better than you did your 30th?

Have a great week!

Lucky Vegas Bracelet ~ What's your lucky charm?

Hi Everyone! I have not been blogging in a while and feel like a bad blogger. Anyhow, I have something to Blog about and I have time tonight to do it!

As you can see, I have made a new bracelet. This bracelet is for my sister, Lani, as her birthday is this month. We will be celebrating it in.......Las Vegas! Hence, I have made her a Lucky Vegas Bracelet for her to wear to all of her favorite slot machines and perhaps to the crap table. I personally like to wear my Grandmothers Jade bracelet for luck.

~Lani's Lucky Vegas Bracelet~
I will be selling this style in my shop Urban Corner soon!

I have a question for everyone. What brings you luck? Do you wear jewelry to bring you luck or a specific piece of clothing? This is quirky but, before I go on a run, I must put my left shoe on first. Have a great week everyone - the weekend is almost here!
