Hooray! Hooray! Now remember, you can become this gorgeous too! You just need a bathroom and a camera!! Come on now, don't be shy!!

Make sure you scroll on down to the next post after this and feast your eyes on more Divas!

Dear Sweet Ones, as I said, I've missed you all so very much and will do my best to personally reply to all your messages to me! I'd like to share my little trip with you. First of all I want to say I'm truly blessed! God has blessed my Mr. Precious with such a wonderful job that involves traveling to wonderful places and I get to go too! I never take this for granted and I am always like a child in a candy store when I get to go on these wonderful journeys. So just know I feel very humble and just want you to share in my joy, too!!

Okay, here we go! Mr. Precious and I flew to Las Vegas, rented a car and drove to Henderson and stayed three nights at the beautiful Green Valley Ranch. I kept calling this place the Hidden Valley Ranch and was craving salad all the time!

I want to share with you the beautiful gorgeous suite we stayed in! This is standing in the foyer looking into the living room!

I could not get over the SIZE of that animal print ottoman! If little Chloe Dawn could have come, she would have been dancing all over that thing!

The dining room...

This is a little room with the mini bar and fridge. OH, I tried so hard not to covet that countertop!

Looking into the dining room. See the cool little lights under the ledge?

A pretty little desk area.

This was the little powder room off the foyer.

uh oh...I see a mirror and I just can't help myself!!
Snap snap!! Hi sweet Dear Ones!!! I can't help but be a Diva!!

Now into the bedroom.

I would never be able to pull sheets this tight!

Fuzzy pillows! This reminds me of fuzzy faced Chloe Dawn!!

Cool lamps. Reminds me of the old fashioned corsets!

Now this was my little resting spot!

Beautiful restfulness...

The baaaath. Isn't it gorgeous!?

I was hoping they'd replace these every day. Nope, they didn't.

Aren't the frames so lovely on these mirrors? MIRRORS!!!

Snap snap!! You know I just can't help myself!!

Mr. Precious just loves the showers. I love the bathtub!

Looking out the window to the pool area.

Don't let these pictures fool looks so nice and cool, but it was about 109 degrees! You talk about hot!

Peeping through the bars.

Here's a few shots of the lovely lobby.

Would I love to have this biscuit jar! It's just awesome!

I have to rest my tootsies now!! Whew this tour has made my feet hurt!
Hope you've enjoyed your stay with me at the Green Valley Ranch. Tomorrow I'll show you some more!

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

It's A Miracle

You wouldn't believe where I've been,

The cities and towns

I been in, from Boston to Denver

and every town in between.

The people they all look the same,

only the names have been changed.

But now that I'm home again

I'll tell you what I believe:

It's a Miracle

a true blue spectacle,

a miracle come true.

We're together baby,

I was goin' crazy till the miracle came through.

Now you're here and my arms are around you

and baby they'll be dancin in the streets

for the miracle a true blue spectacle,

the miracle is you

I never knew you look so good.

Oh I never knew anyone could.

I must have been crazy to ever have gone away.

I almost forgot what it's like,

holdin you near me at night.

But now that I"m home again

you'll know that I'm home to stay,

cause it's a miracle a true blue spectacle,

a miracle come true.

We're together baby,

I was going crazy

till the miracle came through.

Now you're here I'm feeling so good,

and baby they'll be dancing in the streets

for the miracle a true blue spectacle,

the miracle is you.

I am having a knee replacement om Mon and time was running out for that post. I told you I would surprise you one day. I had a huge laugh over the whole thing.

    Your vacation is nothing short of heaven. Your photos are wonderful. I am so happy you had a much needed rest. I am also happy you are back home.

    Love and hugs, Jeanne

  13. Oh woweeeeeeeeeee! Look at that place! What kind of company does Mr. Precious work for that puts him up in a deluxe suite like that? Holy bonkers! I would have just stayed in the room the whole time luxuriating in all that beautifulness!

    Justine :o )

  14. I'm so glad you're back. I've missed all your wonderfulness. Your Hidden Valley Ranch looks so luxurious. Were you being terribly pampered while Mr. Precious was working hard?

Does Mr. Precious have a single co-worker who gets trips like this too? lol

    P.S. I love your last "Diva" shot is awesome, you look very cute!

  30. What a fun place. I used to love it when Bob traveled and I got to go along. He is happy that he has a job now that requires no not so much. I miss having some alone time once in a while when he was off in some place I didn't want to go and I miss the thrill of a trip to Ireland or London or SanDiego ( my fav). What a jet setter I *used* to be.
