On Wednesday I mentioned that our family took a last minute road trip to Las Vegas. I'll be the first to admit that Las Vegas seems like an unlikely place to visit with kids. However, we always manage to have a relaxing time and find things to do (ahem, lots of lounging by the pool). On this particular trip, we stayed at the Venetian hotel. The Venetian houses a handful of notable restaurants such as Postrio, Cut, and Morel. One restaurant that I've been wanting to try for awhile is Bouchon Bistro, but haven't had the opportunity. The bistro is most widely known for its restaurants and bakeries located in Yountville, Beverly Hills and New York. Well, imagine my surprise when I discovered that there was a Bouchon Bistro inside the Venetian and a bakery in the lobby. Win-win! Let's see, lounging by the pool and dining at a French bistro. Add to that a cozy hotel room and a little shopping. Yep, I would say the trip was a success. Just what the doctor ordered. [wink]
Unrelated to the topic above, I wanted to touch upon something that I talked about in Monday's Moodboard post. I had mentioned that my inertia was becoming quite frustrating and that I would really like to try to DO more. With this mind, I pulled down all my to-do lists from my pin board in an attempt to organize, consolidate, and cross things off that have been completed. In going through this exercise, I realized how many items I was crossing off my list slash how much I had already accomplished. I think sometimes I don't give myself enough credit, which made me wonder, are you the same way? Are you hard on yourself for not getting things done? Do you forget to congratulate yourself for the things you have accomplished? This weekend, instead of making another to-do list, or checking an already existing one, how about we make a list (written or in our head) of all the things we have done. I hope this task will make you feel proud and bring you some happiness. Cheers to each of you, and have a wonderful weekend!
