Thanksgiving in Vegas!!!

Me and Brad didn't have any work Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving, so we decided to hit up LAS VEGAS!! It was kind of a spontaneous trip, but of course those are always the best! After reading the blog of one of my friends, Tori Goodrich, she convinced us to stay at the Golden Nugget after talking about how fun it was. It was a BLAST!! There swimming pool was incredible!!! They had a shark tank right in the middle of the pool and a water slide that went through the shark tank. Thanks Tor for the good idea:). Here are some random pics from the trip...
The first night we got there, we hit up the Las Vegas temple. It was beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I promise we felt bad for a millisecond to leave the temple and then gamble our lives away, but I guess it's just all part of the Vegas experience.
Of course we couldn't help but go to the Bellagio water show, it's always tradition I'm sure for everyone that goes to Vegas. The Bellagio is famous for there seasonal decorations inside, they are so fun to look at. The pictures of course never do justice, so I'm sorry about the darkness.
While walking the strip, we had to hit up the M&M store, Coca-Cola factory, and the Miracle Mile shops, and of course check out all the pornography on the ground. Ha-jokes, but they were all so fun to see again.....well except for the nography.
This was the first year we walked down Freemont Street. It seriously was one of the coolest things I've ever seen. If any of you guys haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend it. That's the screen/ceiling behind us.
These next pictures are the reason we stayed at the Golden Nugget. It was honestly the most incredible swimming pool I have ever been in. We couldn't get enough of the water slide that went through the sharks tank. Every time we went down we tried so hard to stop in the middle of the slide so we could get a good look at it, but we ended up looking like the biggest idiots with are legs and arms spread out to try and stop ourselves. Everyone could see us from outside every time we went down.
There were some other fun pics we took but it takes me about 25 mins to upload every picture, so here is a good little taste. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year!!

Baby Reesies Blessing

Well, most of you already know that my sister Stace had her, cute little baby girls blessing. I just wanted to throw out some pics and say how beautiful it was. Dave did an awesome job and the 1 1/2 hour blessing was enjoyable. Jokes, I just wanted Dave to sound like a spiritual giant there for a min. But seriously, it really was great! I'm so happy for them!So lately our favorite restaurant has been The Garden-whenever we hit up downtown, which by the way I recommend to every live downtown just once before you die. We are obsessed with this city. Who knew that 20 mins would make a world of a difference. But anyways, we love to go there for our dates. I know what your thinking, The Garden is a little pricey, and the only reason why I wanted to tell you guys that, this is our favorite place, was so you thought me and Brad were millionaires. Well...we are. We really only go there when we feel like pretending we are millionaires. Highly recommend the place though, they have a perfect view and really good overpriced food.
Last note- for any of you who are dying to go to an Aerobics class, I am officially teaching AEROBICS!! WOOOHOOOO! Monday nights and Saturday mornings at 8. Soon to be Thursday nights too after the Holidays. But I'll be honest, I only let woman over 80 come, so I don't feel like my class is in better shape than me. It's been so fun though, I only wish I would have started right out of high school. Come if you feel like dancing around and getting some exercise!! P.s. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!

What could I possibly say to help you believe me that we had absolutely zero Internet since we have moved down town into our new apartment. Well, OK, we didn't have zero, but we were bumming off our neighbors Internet which meant we had, no lie, about 5 minutes at a time to get on our Internet.
So, as you can see, we finally got Internet and I can join the blogging world once again, but I have to be honest, last night after we got the Internet I was up all night pacing back and forth, sweating and screaming deciding whether or not I should start blogging again, because at most points for me, it is a freaking chore to blog.

I tried to make it as brief as possible of all the things I didn't blog about this summer all up until here we go.
Starting with my sweet sister's newborn daughter. She is incredibly beautiful and a joy to have around! Also I want to Congratulate my close friend Racquel, she also had her beautiful baby boy this summer! He's a gem!
Also, our close friends, Kelly and Candace Marsh got hitched this summer! We can finally talk marriage life with them now and its not so annoying and awkward.
Can't forget about boating with the Elder's....a guaranteed BLAST every time!! (Wish you were in this picture with us Liz..just not the same without you guys)

One of the my favorite things that happened, was our awesome cousins coming down to visit, Brette and Leslie, a week is just not enough with them!!

Thought I would get some pics of all the BBQ's we had this summer with friends and family. Promise I'm craving summer as I type...

Me and Brad finally got to the Zoo! We live right down the street from it, so we thought it was about time, and yes....the Gorilla did eat its own poo the entire time we were looking at it.Our good friend Cortnee Lambert is getting married in November and of course weddings come with fantastic reunion showers:).
And last but not least, HALLOWEEN! If you couldn't tell from the picture, me and Brad went as each other. I tried so hard to do that cute smile that Brad constantly has on his face, but as you can see, mine turned out like the ugliest face I have ever made....and just slaughtering his image. We also went to Kelly and Candaces for some food, games and hit up the This is the Place Heritage Haunted house, of course I didn't take one picture dang it, but just in case you were dying to know, it was an awesome night:)(sigh)....Well there ya go! Not that its your first priority in life to wake up and look at our blog, but I'm glad you are all finally in the loop again!
