The suite life.....

Today started out kinda slow. I woke up with a sore throat, courtesy of DH, but managed to make it to a little quilt store, Quilt It YaYa, in the next little town over with a friend. I got some cute flannel to make Molly a little dog bed since the other two keep kicking her out of the two dog beds we now have. I was going to work on it when I got home, but I needed a nap instead as my head was starting to pound by now.

So about 30 minutes into my nap, DH calls. He wants to go to Albuquerque and stay at Sandia Casino Resort. Noooooo, my throat hurts and my head is pounding, not to mention I haven’t done any laundry all week. I have NO jeans clean. None, nada, zilch. So I throw a load in and it’s 6:30 by the time it’s done and we leave.

Now I’ve been to Sandia Casino before, it’s an Indian casino just a tad north of Albuquerque and a gorgeous casino. But the resort part wasn’t even started the last time I was here. So we wait for our room and when I tell the bellhop our room number he comments on what a great room we got. He had been telling me how this resort rivals anything in Vegas, and he would put their suites up against Bellagio anytime. Yeah, yeah, yeah I’m thinking. Very nice guy but he’s “selling” the place. No doubt it’s a very nice resort, but I’m not totally believing him lol.
So he shows me to the room, DH goes straight to the blackjack table, and when he opens the door the first thing I see is this
This is the tile medallion in the entry way of this suite. The next pic is the living area as seen from the doorway

This is the powder room just inside the door.

This is looking toward the door from the window, notice the niche? I've got a closer shot coming up. The arrangement was gorgeous.

The bedroom, with king size bed

A few shots of the bathroom

Scales in a hotel room???? Plus a regular blow dryer, not one of those cheesy ones that hang on the wall in most hotels.

This is where I plan on being in about 20 minutes!!

and then this.....

and then a little of this....
little chocolate casino chips! don't ya just love it!!

Here' the niche, not a very good pic. I'll try for a better one tomorrow.

Now I'm off to see if that bathtub works as good as it looks :)

Since I don't really gamble I'll spend tomorrow in the mall, so I better rest up!
