My Long Travel Day

I went to bed at 2:30 this morning and woke myself up at 4:30! I got to the airport at 6:30 am and caught my flight at 7:30 am! 7 hours of flying is enough to make anyone crazy, but then there is that shuttle ride that takes you 2 hours to get from Vegas to St. George. But, Scotty (the driver) was really nice as was all of the local people that caught that bus home. The mountain scenery was awesome to take in along the way ... have your cameras ready to be the tourist! I stayed at the St. George Holiday Inn ... it's a place to stay but nothing great to write home about (except for Nona, the guy at the front desk who was very helpful). However, the restaurant at the Holiday Inn, "The Orchids", was really nice for that "last meal" festivity! :) I had my steak and chardonnay. Yum. It was a bit pricey, but worth it considering that I'll be on the Biggest Loser Diet for the next 4 weeks!!! :) I'll fill you in on the daily activities at Fitness Ridge Ranch tomorrow! I'm so excited to get there! The shuttle (same one) is picking Fitness Ridge people up at 11:00 to get to the resort. We can't officially check in until 3:00 but they said we could go look around. More later ....

  1. Gosh, I'm so excited for your Dee Dee! I love reading your blog so keep up the great writings. I can't believe I'm going to be there 1 week from today. I'll be arriving about early, too, so I'll have plenty of time to check things out. What are you going to do for lunch? Are you smuggling in a Subway? LOL!
