The hap’s around the Delish household

13 Mar

Hey Guys!

Ahhh I’ve missed you guys so much! I’ve been so MIA it’s not even funny. I think this is the longest I have ever went without posting something (other than my posts on HelloGiggles.)

I really have no excuse to why I have been gone for so long, it’s not like anything specific happened, or that I was too busy. As you may have read in a previous blog post (almost a year and a half ago, holy smokes) we moved into my parents house to save up to buy our own home. It was awesome that my Mom and Dad put up with us this whole time and we really were able to get our life together and put away money for our own home.

As of the New Year, we were looking around at houses to buy and were really excited at the prospect of owning our own place. Just as life can be, we got thrown a bit of a curve ball and right now it would not be a smart idea for us to buy a place. Hopefully I will be able to talk about this more with you another day, but I can’t do that right now. Don’t worry it’s nothing bad and no I’m not pregnant or anything crazy like that! Ha.

So this all being said, we decided even if we would not be buying a home at the time being, it was still the right time to get moved out and on our own again. So for now, we are moving out and renting a really nice place that we will be moving into April 1st! We’re going to be buying new furniture and I’m hoping to do some fun DIY projects and decorating that I will share with you guys. I think it will be really fun and different to put another aspect of life onto the blog. This also means I will be cooking most nights, which I have not been doing since we have been living with my Mom who is awesome and does the majority of the cooking. Great for my laziness, not so much for content on the blog though.

I am really excited to be re-inspired and try out some new and delicious recipes to share with you all. I will be pinning lots of new recipes as well as home decor/furniture that catches my eye! If you want to check out what I am pinning, you can follow me here.

Also, please hit me up on Facebook or Twitter if you have recipe ideas or any other ideas for a post you would like to see on Miss Delish.

Thank you guys for being so great and continuing to read here, even when I am a major slacker.

“You haven’t  petted me in  at least 13 seconds now, and yes I am counting. I will surely die of lack of human touch”

“so far, I have only been on two walks today and played fetch for 45 minutes, this must be what Sarah McLachlan is singing about in those SPCA commercials”

“you didn’t add any cheese to my scrambled eggs this morning, what fresh hell is this?”

“I wanted my ears rubbed, not a chin scratch… sigggghhhhh”

“it’s so bright in here, can’t someone close those curtains? Then later when I need to see outside (to bark at the neighbors cat) I will just violently tangle myself in them until they open again”

“Great, now the cat is taunting me again…”

“who, me? I couldn’t see myself doing anything like that…um….puurrrrrrr…”

“PS. look how cute I am with my paws crossed”

“what a sad excuse for a dog.”

MEOW MEOW.

I found this series of photos on my camera and I immediately thought of this video! It’s funny because its true.

 

Have a lovely evening everybody!

Wynn Las Vegas – Weekend Brunch Buffet

28 May

Good morning lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and those of you that are in the US, I hope you had an awesome Memorial day long weekend!

I promised you last week that I would get a little post together about a crazy good meal we had when we were in Vegas last weekend, so here it is! I am going to jump right into it because I have a lot to get done today.

The restaurant I am talking about is the Buffet at the Wynn. I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, ‘a buffet? really?’ of all the restaurants in Vegas it seems really odd to review a buffet. BUT I promise you that this will be the best brunch buffet you ever go to. It’s crazy!

They run a regular breakfast buffet from Monday – Friday that I believe costs somewhere around $21, which is pretty much on par with all the other hotel buffets, although I can assure you this one is better. THEN on the weekend, they run their famous brunch buffet which costs $31 (I think.) I couldn’t find the prices posted on their website so don’t hold me to that. I know it is definitely just over $30. Now I know that seems super expensive for breakfast and if you’re not a huge foodie or a big eater, you might not really get much out of it. We originally went with a couple of the other people on the trip and we were the only ones that decided to bite the bullet and go. For the others they didn’t think it was worth it for them personally, and I totally understand that. If you’re a foodie, though, you’re in for a treat.

Please excuse the iphone photos, I chose not to bring my DSLR to Vegas for a couple reasons, mainly because I didn’t want to lug it around the whole time and I was worried it might get broken/stolen/lost with all the shenanigans that seem to go on in Vegas.

I showed you a couple photos of the Wynn in my last post, but here are a couple more of the entry way into the hotel & casino.

It was so gorgeous! There were tons of flowers everywhere and the trees were all lit up.

The buffet it self is beautiful as well, it kind of has a French garden theme, with topiaries, fruit and more flowers. The tables and chairs were really pretty as well. The atmosphere is definitely elegant yet relaxed.

What happens in Vegas…ends up on this blog!

24 May

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful week!

I haven’t been on here in what seems like forever and I’m so glad to be back.

I sent out a little request for ideas on my Facebook page! I need recipe ideas for next week so either let me know on Facebook or comment below and I may just use on of your ideas!

I have another post to do next week as a little continuation of the Vegas trip. It’s a specific review of one of the awesome restaurants we visited while in Sin City! It was amazing and I will share it with you next week. I even have a little video to go along with it.

For today, I just wanted to drop in and tell you a little about the trip and show you some photos. Just a heads up that I fail at taking photos on vacations, I just tend to focus more on enjoying my trip than taking photos, but I tried to remember to snap some here and there.

Okay, let’s go!

Airplane drinks.

Vegas Vacation

13 May

“Holy crap, Wayne Newton’s hitting on Mom!”

Name that movie.

Yes, as I mentioned the other day, I’m heading to Las Vegas this week for my Mom’s 50th Birthday. My Mom and her high school friends always wanted to go on a trip together and my Mom has never been to Vegas so about a year ago I started planning the trip.

What better way to spend your 50th Birthday, right?

I am really excited to be able to go as well. Mr. Delish and I have wanted to go to Vegas for a long time, but we really aren’t gamblers so we kind of put it on the back burner. Now that the trip is planned, I am really excited to go down there and have the whole Vegas experience.

That’s right folks, we’ve never been to Las Vegas.

We decided to stay at Treasure Island, mostly just because of it’s central location. It’s close to the big fun mall, as well as some of the other main Casinos like Mirage and Caesar’s Palace.

We don’t have a whole lot planned but we did plan one dinner with everyone, and we took a recommendation from a friend of ours to try Roy’s Hawaiian. We chose Roy’s because it isn’t too fancy and the food sounds really fun and different. Everyone loves seafood as well so it’s perfect.

Then some of the ladies are going to one of the Shania Twain concerts over at Caesar’s Palace.

And Mr. Delish and I are going to go party at one of the Rehab Pool Parties at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Some things I am really excited for:

  • Sun
  • Exploring
  • Dining out
  • Hanging out with good company
  • Shopping
  • Blender drinks
  • Drinks in general

I will be back next week with photos and highlights, but first, I want your advice:

Miss Delish asks:

Have you been to Vegas before? Tell me all about it!

What are some of the Vegas must do’s? Activities, shopping, restaurants, sightseeing ect?
