Holiday Happiness at Bellagio...

New Year's Eve is...tomorrow? Where on earth did 2011 go? Back in my maitre'd days, I would have had my outfit planned months in advance ~ tomorrow I will be choosing the most comfortable jammies to sit and indulge in king crab, caviar, and champagne...the food has taken precedence over the attire!
I trekked over to Bellagio yesterday on the Vegas Strip for some holiday was packed to the gills. Apparently Las Vegas is at 98% occupancy, not bad with our current economy! 
At Prada I fell in love....if I were "dressing", this is what I would be in ~

These I love my bling!


My poor boys youngest had fun trying on Prada shades and playing with the bear keychains ...


This mask would be fun for the right soiree... via Cirque du Soleil ~

Little black dress here I come...

The boys patience paid off with Nutella crepes at Jean- Phillippe ~ How wicked is this Grinch made entirely of chocolate and fondant?

A true Zen moment ~ Buddha and chocolate!

Bellagio's Conservatory always makes one feel the magic of Christmas...
the Polar bears are made entirely of white carnations.

This scarf by Hermes makes me happy too! I hope that you have been feeling the joy and the magic of the season...and, if you are heading out tomorrow night, that you have a fantastic evening ~

Speaking of Happy, I enjoyed this post about
