Hi! I'm Back!

Hello, Dear Ones! Oh, how I've missed you all! I so appreciate all of your sweet comments to me on my break!

We've been traveling and had a marvelous time! Our first five days were spent in the Bahamas at The Atlantis on Paradise Island. So beautiful and so so hot! I should have felt right at home! :) Then five more days in Miami.

Well, I have so many pictures to share and didn't want to bore you too awfully much, so I took the tutorial on mosaics from my Dear Sweet Friend, Laurie, at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie. This is a great idea so I can show you many photos at once! :)

We stayed at the newly built Cove Towers. Here's a few views from our balcony.


Here is our little suite. The decor was modern and very comfy! Do you see the bottom photo on the right with all the pillows - 10 to be exact! Well, we kept ordering up new ones because one set was too hard and one set was too soft. The housekeeping staff never took away any of them. When we returned to our room and I saw all of these pillows on the bed, I just had to laugh and of course snap a photo! Then I just jumped right into the middle of them! Woo Hooness!


Mr. Precious and me. Well, you know I didn't take these photos - they're blurry! But you get our drift! We had fun!


If you've been to The Atlantis you know how wonderful the aquarium is! It just goes on forever and you can even walk under the sharks!



Just a lovely place where we walked our tiny feet off and got a bit of sun, ate like little pigs and got some rest.


Now you know me, The Queen of the Daring Darling Bathroom Beauty Snappers, I would never let you down! I had to snap a few times for you and even got Mr. Precious in on the act too!

Now, if I could just get all these dirty clothes washed I'll be back tomorrow and tell you about Miami!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Kokomo

Aruba Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
Bermuda Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo Montego baby why don't we go
Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys
There's a place called Kokomo
That's where you wanna go to get away from it all

Bodies in the sand
Tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love
To the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

Aruba Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

To Martinique, that Monserrat mystique

We'll put out to sea
And we'll perfect our chemistry
By and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity

Afternoon delight
Cocktails and moonlit nights
That dreamy look in your eye
Give me a tropical contact high
Way down in Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

Port Au Prince I wanna catch a glimpse

Everybody knows
A little place like Kokomo
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Kokomo

Aruba, Jamaica ooo I wanna take you
To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Kokomo
