Meal Plan Monday



With the hustle and bustle of the last few weeks over with...its time for me to settle down and start getting our lives organised. There has been so much expense with the wedding and Christmas so its time to start budgeting again so weekly food planning is a must. Im so happy to have my own kitchen again. Mr D bought me a Crockpot for Christmas so I will be using that a lot, and he was given a Food Card as a Christmas gift from his work, so that has come in handy stocking up the freezer and store cupboard. We also had a gift card for Lucielles, so Friday we are using it to go out to dinner and celebrate the new year. I'm going to love cooking real meals for my new hubby, and after all the fast food and ready meals he ate as a single man...I think Mr D is going to enjoy eating them.

Hoover Dam With Mr D

One of the things on my everlong 'To See One Day' List is the Hoover Dam. I have heard so much about it, and was excited when MrD announced this morning that we were going to drive to see it
Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam

 
Set in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River,
 on the border between Arizona and Nevada
At 726.4 ft high ...
its a very long way down

 
but its absolutely amazing...look at that view. 
Im so happy we came

Honeymoon in Vegas

After the marriage ceremony ....
we returned to our hotel room ... 
hurridly got changed and had the wedding breakfast
....Dasovich style...

 Then we were off to see more of Las Vegas

 We saw so many famous landmarks

We walked for hours


 and it was like travelling to different countries.

 But my favourite had to be the Luxor

It was like stepping back in time ..

 with its pyramids and sphinx 

 And as the sun went down

 The lights went on...

 Making everywhere just a little more Christmas like

Fabulous!

Love and Hugs..
Mr and Mrs D xx

A quiet wedding we had:  he and I, the
parson and clerk, were alone present..."

Calico Ghost Town

On our way to Las Vegas, we visited Calico Ghost Town, a former silver mining town built in 1881, which still has some of its original buildings.

It was all decked out ready for Christmas. And I loved all the different stores. I treated myself to a few souvenirs. 

I took so many photos...I will let them speak for themselves


















Ive always wanted to visit a 'Western' town...and this fit the bill perfectly.
We had a wonderful time

Love and Hugs
