Every pot has its lid...

I can always remember my mom saying this phrase. I would see a couple and question how they met or got married and my mom would say "honey every pot has its lid" And I have to say after spending 4 days with my sweet hubby he is still my lid. Isn't it funny how you can be in a huge crowd of people and there is not even one other person you could picture yourself with. I am a "crack pot" for sure but his lid is still is a perfect cover for me and I am grateful. We went away this weekend because we had four free nights at the Palazzo hotel,and we had so much fun! I know there is no one who could be better suited for us than each other.
I not only have bucket lists for the big things in life I want to do, but I have little bucket lists for almost every place we go. And he just sweetly goes along with my madness. I wanted to visit a Dunkin Doughnuts store because they have such good coffee, and I wanted to buy a few bags of the beans to take home. I know they sell Dunkin beans at Costco, but they are not the real  Dunkin Doughnut beans. So off we went for a nice long drive to get "my beans" And since we came all that way...and we haven't had a doughnut there since we were kids, we each got one. We sat in the bar stools smiling and completely happy! Steve said I was swinging my feet and enjoying every sprinkle.Then a friend at work said they have the BEST croissants in the world at the bakery inside the Paris hotel. Well,I wasn't about to let a 6 block walk through Vegas streets keep me from trying one. Steve sweetly said"I'm sure they have good ones here too" But nope off we went and I have to say it was worth the walk.Fresh, flakey and super yummy with orange marmalade. There was also a store at the mall I wanted to shop in,of course see at least one Bellagio water show,listen to the dueling pianos at New York New York, and the list goes on. And Steve goes along with it all making sure all the little joys are crossed off .We lounged out by the pool patio and read, watched tv in jammies in our fabulous suite,walked through the shops upstairs and through the beautiful lawns with the flamingos at the classic Flamingo hotel. We stayed up late and then slept in.We people watched like no place other! You really do see it all in Vegas! We didnt get dressed up and go to Tao~didnt buy a thing at Dior, nor did we hang out in the hip bars , but we had fun! Our kind of fun....This old pot and her lid

Happy Hour...Somewhere said...

Gosh, I KNEW I was looking in all the wrong places for a new man in my life. I should have been in the pots and pans section of Macy's. Now, do I want a stainless or cast iron guy? Baked enamel, Teflon. Oh my. I can't wait to flip my lid.

I love your mom's saying because I used to wonder the same thing. What on earth do they see in each other??? Mom's say the darndest things.

This is so darling! My mom was full of funny sayings too but I have never heard this one and I LOVE IT! It will be my new favorite and if you don't tell, maybe my girls will think I made it up and they will think I'm cute and clever, etc. Oh, probably not! Anyway, sounds like you had a perfect trip to Sin City. We go there often (just 1 1/2 hours from us) to shop and eat but you have given me some new ideas about places to visit there. But next time, just drive a little further up the 15 and spend some time with this crack-pot and her lid!

Love your post! You and Steve are too cute, but question, how do you know that you aren't the lid to Steve's pot?....
