Notre Dame Cathedral - Paris, France

The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France was stunning.  The stain glass windows were beautiful as were the many paintings.  They have kept the cathedral in great condition. 

This picture is a little blurry, but I wanted to show the date 1163!





It is free admission to get in.  Although there was a huge line to get in when I went the lined moved quickly.

Heelys Review

I was beyond excited when my daughter's Heelys came in the mail a few weeks ago.  Until now none of my kids have ever had a pair.  They have asked for them year after year, but I always said no.  I wrongly assumed they were too expensive.  Now, I know they run a great special everyday on their website. 

Needless to say, when Heelys offered the chance to review a pair I took it!  I knew she was going to be excited to get them (and she was!), but I didn't realize how excited all of the kids would get.  Here's a video of their reaction. 

Now that I've watched her learn to use them (it took a few days for her to get the hang of it, the how to videos on Heely's website was a huge help) and seen how much fun she is having with them I plan to get my boys a pair for Christmas.  I will probably get some on Black Friday.  Heelys is running a special from November 25th - 28th.  When you buy any pair of Heelys you get the second pair for $25, plus free shipping.

 An added bonus is the complaining about going to the store has stopped! When we went to the furniture store and the grocery store yesterday she was actually excited, because she could heely all over the place!

The Mix at The Hotel in Vegas

The Mix is at the top of The Hotel (Mandalay Bay) and as you can see it has a stunning view of  Las Vegas.  We recently had a romantic date night there.

The Mix restaurant is a beautiful place, but not as big as the pictures on it's website make it look.

You can pretty much see all of the kitchen.

This is the bar/lounge area.

The dance floor at The Mix, which is a lot more happening later at night. We were there pretty early, because we had a sitter.

You can see the sign for The Hotel in the background.

We ate quite a bit while we were at The Mix.  I did not order pea soup, but the waiter brought some out compliments of the chef.  I must say it was tasty and they serve it with flair.

My husband had the COD BRANDADE lemon, capers, brown butter, croutons and fried parsley for $32.  He said it was good, but the portion was to a little on the small side.

 I had their 10oz New York strip for $42.  This Texan thought it was very good and I liked the fact that I got more than one sauce, Black pepper corn and BĂ©arnaise.  We also got two sides, creamy spinach $9 and sauteed asparagus $12.

 For dessert we had the Mix candy bar.  We had a similar dessert at the Red Square at Mandalay Bay that was excellent and the Mix version was almost as good!

  Oh, and I thought the bathrooms were unusual.
