Australia Anyone?

I just had a really fun weekend! My friends Maggie, Kim, and I had been looking forward to this weekend for a LONG time. We were so excited to go down to Las Vegas and let it loose! Saturday morning though, Maggies awesome hubby Eric had to go to the ER and was admitted for some health problems that he has. We were ready to call the whole trip off because Maggie is so much fun to be around and we felt bad leaving her and felt bad having fun while her poor hubby suffered. But she insisted that we go anyway and so we did. We had a really good time but missed her terribly. But that means we will just have to go back!
Kim and I loaded up the car and headed to Vegas. First stop was FOOD! I must say we pretty much ate ourselves through the day. We started out at In n Out Burger. Which I must say the one in Vegas is sooo much better than the one in St. George (go figure). I was introduced to "animal style" which is grilled onions on the burger. TASTY!!! After that we headed to the outlet mall and found way fun stuff -hence the feathers in our hair. I am now in love with feather accessories. We fell in love with some boots but left them on the shelf....sad day..... I still dream about them. After which we saw a DUNKIN DONUTS and I HAD TO STOP!!!! We ate a donut and a beverage of choice. Yummy yummy. We then spent the next hour laughing so hard we couldn't breathe. It was so much fun. After that we went and just wandered the strip. I must say the strip is getting pretty bad these days. Just don't look down as you walk the street. You will see that you are not built the way certain others are built. I will just leave it at that. :)
We then went and had dinner at Rainforest Cafe and had yummy dinner. We had a waitress slip and fall and hit her head on the ground thus throwing her into a seizure. Kim and I were wondering if things could possibly get anymore exciting. WELL, IT DID!!! THUNDER FROM DOWN UNDER was an amazing show. I think it has a way bad rap. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting. We saw more on the strip and in the casinos then in there. Wowzers, those men have such great talent. Their dancing was incredible and I am not going to lie, they were H-O-T!!!! It felt so good to be silly and to laugh and to know that I have a great husband that supports me and understands me and lets ME be ME. It has been really hard to fit in here in Utah. I just have my own agenda and with the pressure to be this or that drives me nutso and I forget who I am. I feel like I need to form myself into someone I just cannot form into. Does that make any sense? I think I just need to remind myself from time to time that it is OK to have fun and it is OK to laugh and act crazy. I came home such a nicer and patient mom and wife. I needed a breather and it is OK to breathe it is OK to leave my kiddos behind and have adult fun. In fact.....we are planning another get away next year....HOLLYWOOD HERE WE COME!!!!!

Sounds like y'all had a blast. Sounds like there needs to be at least an annual trip planned!

I've never really had a desire to live in Utah. But if I ever make it that far for a visit--we'll have to hook up for some fun!

I'm sorry for you not feeling "fit in" there.
