Pink Saturday

I've only been to Las Vegas once, and I can't say I'd ever go back.
It's strange, however, that I keep coming back to this picture time and time again.
I remember that I had an awful headache from how loud it was,
but nonetheless, it was an experience I'm glad I had.
It's not all that often, outside a science fiction movie
that you get to see the whole sky lit up above your head.
Anyhow, for those of you who have wondered, that's what Spouse looks like.

If you'd like to see some more Pink Saturday, head over to How Sweet The Sound.
This week Beverly asked us to say a bit about how we are going to be choosing blogs to visit and comment on. I normally would have some fun and grandiose way of participating, but I expect that most of my tomorrow will be spent dealing with the situation with my grandmother, and therefore if I'm looking, it will be via my phone which doesn't allow me to comment on a good many blogs. Sorry folks. That said, since only two people are allowed in an ICU room at a time, I suppose that I'll have plenty of waiting around time to at least look.

Welcome and happy pink Saturday.
That is a great picture of Las Vegas at night. We have been there many years ago and what struck me that people are living there 24 hours of the day.
Have a nice day

Happy Pink Saturday. I hope everything goes well at the hospital.


Beverly said...

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Slee.

Your photo is wonderful. I've never been to Vegas, and I'm not sure I have a desire to go. My husband always wanted to go, but now he has been on a business trip.

I'm so sorry about your grandmother. These times are so difficult. I will pray for your family.

Welcome to Pink Saturday. I adore your background. There are lots of places that I have visited, and glad that I had, but no real desire to go back. It's nice to have had the experience though.

Happy Pink Saturday,

First of all, I want to wish you all the best and loads of strength regarding the hospital situation you're facing, and my best wishes for your grandmother!!

Well, I have been to Vegas once, I was invited. Being German and living in the UK, I had never been to the US before, so my one and only (so far) visit to the US being Vegas was a little untypical for this lovely country.

However, I must say, I thought it was amazing how they built a totally fake city in the desert. Unbelievable!! I don't think I will be back in hurry either ...

Really enjoy your vibrant blog background.

Have a happy Pink Saturday!

Las Vegas is a very surreal place in most respects! I hope that your grandmother is recovering. Take care of yourself :)

How totally lovely! Thanks so much for sharing this week. Raining I needed a little bit of cheer! Pink Saturday always makes me smile, even if the sky is gray.

Have a wonderful weekend with those you l♥ve.

Welcome to PS! LV is a world in its own! Hope all goes well with your Grandma. Happy Pink Saturday!

Shirley said...

I see why you like this shot. Everyone should experience Vegas at least once just to say they had the experience. There's no other place like it.

Mary said...

Hello and welcome.
Your blog background is very pretty. Great shot of the show on Fremont. Yes, Las Vegas is a huge contributor to global warming, 2nd hand smoke and prostitution. It is a sight to see though (from space). I've known many foreigners who either love it or hate the place upon their first time visiting.
Thanks for sharing.

Dreamgirl said...

That's such a fun pink photo!
Welcome to Pink Saturday. I look forward to getting to know you!
Have a very Happy Pink Saturday and a wonderful Sunday too!

Bea said...

LV is definitely a different place! That is a good picture. Happy Pink Saturday!

Sares said...

Welcome to Pink Saturday. I hope things get worked out with your Grandmother. It sounds like a very sad situation. I also LOVE the baby legs! No offense, but your brother-in-laws wife is an ignorant fool. What is wrong with people? Anyway, I hope you enjoy the Pink Saturday experience and that things work out for your Grandmother.

She'sSewPretty said...

Welcome to Pink Saturdays! I read your post below about your Grandmother. That is such a sad situation. Blessings to you and your family!

Leann said...

Welcome, you'll have a blast with all of us lovers of Pink!

That photo is so neat, I love the colors.

Please visit The Old Parsonage anytime, I love visitors!

Welcome to Pink Saturday! Vegas is certainly different, isn't it? Love the pink tones on your hubby's face!

Happy PS!

Denise said...

That's a GREAT picture!!! I've been past Las Vegas, but not to any of the attractions, that looks really cool!!!

Sarah said...

Only been to Las Vegas once and that was 20+ years ago. I know it's a very different place these days. Thanks for sharing the photo.

Mary said...

We went to Vegas for a Nascar race, and I couldn't wait to leave. The picture is great, especially without the music you had to listen to!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Gabriela said...

Happy Pink Saturday!

I have been in Vegas and it was like a surreal experience, one visit is enough. But I am so glad I got to see it...I agree with you...

Mary said...

I hope your grandmother improves. Welcome to Pink Saturday. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Anne Fannie said...

Welcome to Pink Saturday. I like the Las Vegas Pink Picture you shown!
Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. Its times like this we appreciate how precious family really is. Hope everything turns out ok.

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

Never been to Las Vegas but seeing movies, I bet it can be quite overwhelming or me with the loudness and lights. Everything seems to come alive! LOL

Happy 1st Pink saturday!


(hope everything will be well in your visit with your grandma)
