Heading Home

Hello Eat-Clean Bloggers...

Did you miss me over the last few days? I took some down time on Sunday and Monday to see the sites with my daughter and husband. We walked along the Strip, strolled through the Forum shops at Caesar's Palace, and enjoyed some yummy meals. The picture to the left is at dinner on Saturday night at Nove Italiano in the Palms Hotel. I did indulge in a delicious glass of wine and some incredible polenta. To the right is a shot of my daughter and me in front of the Bellagio pool (my favorite hotel). Later that day we had afternoon tea at the Petrossian in the Bellagio. Delicious!

I didn't stray too far from contest eating (minus my pasta splurge on Saturday afteroon after the show, the wine at dinner, and the scone at afternoon tea.... okay, maybe I did stray a little!!) because I had to stay in shape for the photo shoot I had yesterday with Elaine Goodlad in the Red Rocks Canyon. Look out for these pics coming to an Oxygen near you...


Spending 1 week in Las Vegas is a LOOOOONG time away from home. I am happy to be heading back to Toronto today even if that means snow. My cozy bed, my paper-filled desk, and my empty fridge (gotta do groceries tomorrow) await me! It's back to reality!

I know I don't post very often, but I wanted to say that your blog is my favorite. You are so incredibly inspiring and seem like such a nice person. Congratulations on your show! I am a regular subscriber to Oxygen magazine and out of the 4 different subscriptions I have that is my favorite. I was recently in Vegas visiting family and fell in love with Red Rock Canyon. I can't wait to see the pictures!

I missed your blogs this week Tosca. So glad you updated us and shared such real pictures. It's so fun to see what goes on behind the scenes. That's great that you had some family time. You certainly deserved it.

So...now what? When does your show air. I have Bell Express Vu. Do you know what channel it's going to air on and what time? What's the name of the show?

You look awesome. As always you inspire me.

Congratulations on the Ms Bikini competition. You looked stunning. Thanks for blogging your journey for the competition. Although I didn't comment on many of your posts, I was cheering for you all the way! You are still my #1 idol, and always will be.

So happy you took some time on your competition trip to enjoy some family time. You don't surprise me one bit with working on a shoot already. You are AMAZING.

Hi Tosca,
Luv your blog....one thing, when you open one of the pictures, you can't go back to the blog it kicks your right out to the main page?
Can the webmaster fix this?
Thank you?
