Oh my goodness! Do I have a lot to share!! What a ride I have been on this past week!!! An experience I am THRILLED to have had in my lifetime!! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I won a karaoke contest which sent me to Vegas for the finals. I didn't get past the top 100, but that was OK!! The talent I was up against was outstanding!! There was no thinking, "How did 'so and so' make it this far??". Every person that was there truly deserved to be there. I met so many wonderful people from all over. It was amazing!!!! One of the competitors is getting ready to start her international tour this fall and another very nice gentleman is currently working on his CD with his wife. Let me tell you...he has a golden voice! Keep your eyes open for Tim Wilgers in the country music industry. All of us know he's going to make it! He's already opened for Mark Chestnut! I know...I know...you want to see him...well of course you know I'll share photo's!
And on another lucky note, the Daytime Emmy's were held the same day as the competition. I got to walk the red carpet!! (only because the plastic was still on! LOL!!)
Let me tell you...she's as sweet as she is pretty. I was in awe!!! SHE even told ME I looked cute! OMG!! She's a size zero...and I'm..........not! :o)
We went on a tour of Hoover Dam. If you ever get a chance to be in Vegas, make sure to put this tour on your To Do list. It's one of the wonders that will keep you in awe for probably the rest of you life. Absolutely incredible!
We also ate at a fun restaurant. Toby Keith's Bar & Grill. It was great! And they serve free 'freaky' shots. LOL And freaky it was! If you ever see one of his restaurants on your travels, make sure to stop and say 'HI!' to Toby!
I have to tell you that it was great having my mom, aunts and friends travel with me to Vegas. They made it even more special. But you know the saying.....
What I can tell you is when I got back to work Thursday, my co-workers had this for me:
