Tanya's Daily Scoop
CURRENTLY IN: LAS VEGAS, NV
Oh my SHOES!
Dave and I hit the road early this morning and headed on our way to the desert oasis better known as Las Vegas for our little weekend getaway.
I began this blog whilst still on the road and I noticed that I seem to have made a habit of writing remotely and from a moving vehicle!
Anyhow, the drive was rather mellow and without any traffic (which is always a good thing).
In most other situations we would've left last night, but since we had a concert to go to, we decided on this schedule.
Now if you want to talk about mishaps, boy have I got one for you...
Somehow, someway I always seem to have some type of shoe issue.
While I'm not talking about shoes not fitting me properly (because I am one of those lucky ones where just about every shoe in my size fits me perfectly), but I'm talking about shoes falling apart on me and as of last night I have a new one to report - my freakin shoes disintergrated beneath my feet!! LITERALLY.
I was so stoked to be wearing a pair of boots that don't happen to get much use.
They are what I consider funky, cool and fun, and I was in shock as I stood there with my boots on post strutting and they crumbled under me!
WTH happened - these were not cheap shoes and the platforms were falling apart like cookie crumbles. It was totally weird. But it sure did make for a good laugh. Aside from being distraught that my shoes were no longer!
Our jaws were dropped open, and the kids called the rest of the fam to come take a look. With each person entering the room a new jaw hit the floor.
And although I attempted to take a picture, it really does no justice.
These shoes made a HUGE HUGE mess!

So then at the last minute I had to scramble around to figure out what shoes to substitute. I was definitely thrown a curve ball on this one.
But we made it out on time and headed for the venue...
Here's what I wrote while I was there:
"Help me! I'm surrounded by skanks and hussys!
I'm so out of place. This is reminding me of when I followed Priscilla into a bar in Ensenada and was totally grossed out by the table dancing, striping, beer guzzling, wet tee shirt contests, you name it and I sat there like an uptight grandma - although the grandmas that happened to be there were also completely out of control!" I'm such a prude!
And I really enjoyed one quote that he claims reigns from Miami - he is Mr. 305 after-all!
"Don't talk about it - be about it"
So, I'm gonna bail on you guys now - it's time for us to get some eats.
Of course I'll be back tomorrow with a fresh slate and all new SCOOP - because
What Happens in Vegas! ends up on Travelin Cousins ;)
Ciao 4 Now,
