Las Vegas: 40 Plus Divas Fashion Show and Shopping Event

This Saturday, my husband and I attended the 40 Plus Divas Fashion Show at the Westgate Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. The models were 40 years old and older, gorgeous, different sizes, shapes and colors. We were thrilled to have VIP tickets, which gave us front row seating, a chance to be on The Red Carpet with Sherry Lee Meredith, Go Curvy and attend the After Party!

Matthew Barret, Go Curvy Producer and I striking a pose. Meeting Matthew was a treat. We've exchanged emails, in the past but met in person, for the first time at this event!

My makeup was done by New U Natural Beauty Salon, in Las Vegas. It was my first time, having a professional makeup application. I totally enjoyed the experience! I even had an eyebrow threading! Thank you ladies!

Hubby and I having some fun before the Fashion Show starts with a couple of selfies. It was so fun being in the VIP seating.

Check out some of the media. They were definitely ready for the Fashion Show to start.

I love Becca Etc Swimwear! They offer a designer swimwear for plus size. It was a thrill to see some of the pieces in the show!

Purple Diva Designs pieces were very popular with the crowd. This is one of my favorite dresses from her collection!

After the Fashion Show wrapped up, Sherry Lee made a wardrobe change. She was kind of enough to strike another pose with me.

Some of the models and the Purple Diva aka Angela Rene', gathering for a few photos, after the show ended.

I was just gitty when I saw Christopher Styles, LA hairstylist, at the show. "It's Christopher Styles, from Go Curvy"!

Camay McClure, model, owned the Runway! I had a chance to chat with her after the show!

And here's another photo of the 40+ models and The Purple Diva, producer and designer. What a wonderful evening, had by all!

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
