The Last Leg of My Trip ;)

Attention! Attention!! The post for today will just have to wait because we have some astounding news! Dear Ones of Blogland I cannot believe the amount of Bathroom Snapping that is going on in the bathrooms across America! No bathroom is safe from these Snapping ones! As I have said before, they are not dangerous ~ just very clever and oh so beautiful. So stand back and let the procession of the gloriousness ones step into this history making moment...

Oh, my goodness! I'm startled by all of the beauty this gorgeousness one possesses! Her complexion ~ peaches and creamyness! Her hair ~ gorgeous and full of bathroom highlights! That cover girl smile ~ delicious! Oh and that slender little arm poised just so with fingers attached to her CAMERA! Do we know this darlingness one? Why of course we do! This is our Jill at Is this her bathroom? I think I see wine and a fridg! That'll work! ;)

Oh my most Darling citizens of Blogland! We have such a treat here today! This is truly a news flash! We have a MALE! You ask, can a male be a Diva of Bathroom Beautifulness? Of course he can!! Just look at this awesome speciman of hunkiness!! Now, you know I must inspect each participant, okay, here goes...look at his gorgeous complexion ~ it's peaches and creamyness. Look at those piercing blue dreamy eyes! I'm not sure about that expression, is that a smile or is he blowing kisses to all us Divas? Yes, I believe that is exactly what he's doing!! Okay, back to business..those arms of his ~ so full of muscles and look! He can do two things at once ~ hold the most funniestness of signage in one hand and then clasp his CAMERA in the other!! Oh, joyness, oh boyness! This handsome one certainly qualifies for a DIVA!! Now, do we know him? Yes, he is non other than the Hunky Gardener at I guess his signage gives him away! Oh, welcome most handsome one! Go check out his blog ~ he's like our gardening Tootsie ~ he knows everything about growing things and now he knows how it feels to be a DIVA!!

Please Dear Most Gentle Ones, don't be scared! Our bathroom has been truly invaded by a creature not of this world!! Oh, maybe you shouldn't look! Well, maybe just one peep. That's me, the holder of the huge crown of Bathroom Divaship and I seem to be oblivious to this Alien!! Oh, my goodness!! Wait a minute, he or it is kinda cute. I see divine pearlyness of teeth here, the most lovliest of smiles, thin slender arms with fingers attached to a CAMERA! Yes, Dear Ones, don't be afraid, this is a Bathroom DIVA!! Now we must thank one of our original DIVAS, Kathy at for first sighting this Alien! I hear he has been harrassing our most gorgeousness ones all over Blogland! I guess he was just trying so hard to be a DIVA. Okay, precious little skinny Alien, you are DIVA material. We do look rather cute together, don't we?

Now, to the important my hair alright? Ahem...Dearest of darlingnessess, Jill, Hunky Gardener and Alien, I now bestow upon you the most coveted title in all the world, well, in all of Blogland anyway. You are now Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snapping Divas and will be for ever and ever and until the twelfth of never! Please feel free to take our most attractive logo for your blog! Oh, Dearest Ones, we may never have a crowning like this again! We have made history today! Never forget this moment and keep it hidden always in your hearts! Keep snapping my beautiful ones!

If you're just lurking around and spying on all of these most gorgeousness DIVAS, join us! You too can become a DIVA ~ just snap in a bathroom (or if you're too shy for that, any mirrored room will do), post your snaps on your blog, come tell me and I'll come and get you and show you to the world in all of your adorableness!! Snap on, Divas, snap on!


Oh, Divaship is really very hard work! Let me just take a sip of Peach Tea and I'll be alright! Okay, that's so much better. Dear Ones, I promise this is the last of my Vegas trip I'm going to show. I really don't have any gorgeous shots to show's get a little ugly here...

Mr. Precious and I were getting a little bored and decided to take a drive...a drive that lasted all day long! Really the scenery in Nevada is pretty, but when the temp gage in the car says it's 116' outside...I ain't very happy! I don't DO hot very well!

Oh joy! Some water and look how blue it is!

We even drove by that ole Hoover Dam. Didn't get out, remember ~ It's too hot!

There's always a light at the end of a long dark tunnel or maybe some joy at the end of a long hot drive! We spied a little A & W cafe!

Just the cutest little 1950s retro looking place! But the best part of this was the Root Beer!! Don't you just love this? We had two frosty mugs of this delightful icy cold liquid! My hotness was disappearing!
Well, you know me...

I couldn't help myself. I had to go to the bathroom and snap! Let me tell you, there was nothing posh in this bathroom. By the way, I am not drolling or spitting, that is bathroom graffiti all over the mirror! Shame on someone! Did they not know they would be hindering the gorgeousness of my lovely face? Some people!

On our way back into the city of Las Vegas we saw this mountain sheep or goat ~ I'm not very animalfied, I just know about doggies! ;) This little mister ran across the road in front of the traffic to have a late lunch. Isn't he cute? The cars didn't even seem to bother him.

While the sun was shining bright in the hot hot skies of Nevada, Mr. Precious and I said, "We want to go home!!"
I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
People Are Strange
People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
~ sung by Jim Morrison and The Doors


  1. Good Morning, Shelia...

    I've enjoyed reading about your trip to Las Vegas!! I've been there twice...but not sure I'd go again.

    Have a blessed day...I'm outta here...NOW. Yes, I know it's early, but my favorite grocery store, ANDERSON's, is having a very nice off I go.


  2. What a fun trip. I would not have gotten out either in that heat...whew!! Isn't a frosty mug of root beer just great on a hot day!!

  3. Ooh, another fabulous Diva shot of you, and two more to add to the list! Yippeeeeeeeeee!

    Justine :o )

  4. I've got to say it looks hot! I don't do heat like that either! Now, that rootbeer is very refreshing looking. Nothing beats a cold frosty mug of A&W!!

    The Divas are just popping up everywhere aren't they? It's nice to see a man play along :)

    take care,

  5. Good Morning Sheila
    Oh more Divas and a hunky one too! I wonder how many there are now?
    Thank you for sharing more trip sure looked hot out in that desert. That root beer must have been sooooooo yummy and cold. It looked so frosty yum. I love that little retro restaurant too.

    Well I'm glad you were ready to come home...when its time..home is such a welcoming place to be.

    Have a lovey day Sheila,

  6. I don't do heat very well either. I'd probably be afraid to drive around Nevada thinking the car might break down and I'd have to walk! :)

  7. OH MY...NOW I'VE SEEN IT've even corrupted beings from another planet!!! SHEILA! I thought it was bad enough your corrupting all the earthlings around here. Too cute too funny. Glad you had such a fun trip. It is hot out west...but it's a DRY HEAT! Have a fabulous day!

  8. No way would I 'do' 116 degree heat--dry OR wet!

    The A&W root beer looked sooo good. I remember those frosty mugs that are kept in the freezer. I'm not certain I'd have left that place.

  9. Ha Ha!!! I love it! Thanks for all the kind words about this hunky gardener! I asked Tootsie to send you a picture with different words on the piece of paper, but I see the original worked well with your post so you can just enjoy the revised one for yourself!

    Oh, and of course I am blowing all you Divas kisses!

  10. Artie the Alien said thanks and hand over that mug of ROOT BEER!! Heee. Shelia, I just can't do a thing with him. He has taken over my post today! Heee Kathy

  11. Fun drive today...I've just got to ask, "Does Mr. Precious call you Mrs. Precious?"...'cuz you surely are!! ;-) Bo

  12. hey sweetie...loved the post today...and hunky is adorable as a diva!

  13. I do believe HUNKY GARDENER should be crowned "MACHO DIVA HUNK"
    All the divas today are precious.
    Glad you had a good time on your trip....
    Now, if you will excuse me...I gotta go find a new bathroom to snap in.
    love ya, bj

  14. Well thank goodness that was the end because i am tired of looking at your "dam" pictures. lol However, your rootbeer pictures are a completely different story. That frosty mug must have been so good on a day like that.

    I'm glad you didn't fall in love with Vegas and move out there and have no time for blogging because you had developed a gambling addiction. We'd rather have you addicted to snapping your loveliness in bathrooms.

  15. I'm glad you had such a good trip, it looks like a lot of fun.
    The Gardener shot is awesome.

  16. I never leave your site without a smile on my face...thank you! How is your mom? Hope all is well...take care my friend~

  17. Girl I just love you! You bring a smile to my face everytime I visit! I can't believe how the Bathroom Diva thing has caught on, it's just amazing and TOO much fun!
    Buffie : )

  18. You make me smile!!!! :-D
    Have a great day!

  19. Hi Sheila, My son would think he had died and gone to heaven in the cute A&W restaurant! Looks like you had a wonderful and luxurious vacation! Congrats on your awards! You certainly deserve them! I have one for you too, my very own Sunshine Award! Come by and pick it up when you can. It is in Tuesday's post and my daughter is pictured being a Bathroom Diva...would that make her the youngest one so far? LOL!

    ~hugs, Rhonda :)
