Our Anniversary Trip

On our anniversary Dustin gave me roses and the sweetest card I have ever read! That night we had dinner at El Mexicano and rented a movie! We had so much fun just getting to spend the day together! Last year, we went to Vegas and stayed at the Palms for our anniversary. We went to see Mystere by Cirque du Soleil, and we loved it, so we decided to make it tradition! Unfortunately, I had to work the rest of the week so we planned our Vegas vacation for that weekend, the 12th-15th!
We left for Mesquite Thursday night after I got off work. We stayed there that night, and the next morning we got ready and headed to vegas to meet up with Zach and Tiff for lunch. They had been on their Spring Break and Anniversary Trip as well, so we all decided to get together while we were all down there! After lunch Dustin and I checked in to our room, and decided to go walk around the strip for a while!

That night, we went back to the hotel, and one of the ushers gave us a pass to get into the Ghostbar nightclub. We did't find it very fascinating since all they do there is drink so, we went back to put a little bit more money in the Wheel Of Fortune machine. I had caught a cold just before we left for the weekend, so I was ready for bed by 11 or so. I am sure Dustin was ok with that...he did get to gamble and all! The next morning we slept in, and then got up and layed out by the pool for an hour! It was the best weather, and that did not help my "spring fever" any! We quickly grabbed a bite to eat before getting ready to go see Blue Man Group at the Venetian.

(he's gonna kill me for posting this picture! ha)

Dustin wanted to go in the magic shop, and we spent 10 minutes watching this kid do card tricks, and throw light through his body, out his ears, in his mouth...it was crazy! He did a trick with my hand and some coins...I still can't figure out how he got that coin out of my hand...he must be pretty good!

Before it started we gave in to some yummy ice-cream at Haagan Das, and I was almost sold on buying the cutest wrap dress that could be warn a hundred different ways! I loved it...so I guess I was sold! Dustin, on the other hand, thought " I wouldn't wear it any more than two times like the dress he bought me in Mexico!.." blah blah blah! ha (He might have been a teensy bit right!) After luring me away from the wrap dress, we headed to the show! And it was AMAZING! I didn't expect it to be as good as it was! So many people have told me that out of all the shows down there it was their favorite, and now I see why! I wish they would let you take pictures!

The night before we had talked to one of the usher's at the Palms about one of the nightclubs, and he told us the next night he could get us on the guest list to go to all four! Their was going to be a show at Rain, so we were actually excited to go! (I'm not sure what happened for him to get us in, but it was nice of him anyway! Guess a little bit of chatting goes a long way!) We went to Rain for about 30 min. and decided it wasn't as fun as we expected so...
Wierd "flying monkey thing" hanging from the ceiling in club Rain!

...we put some more cash in the Wheel of Fortune machine and I headed to bed! So, all in all we had a fantastic Anniversary! I was sad to send Dustin off to Arizona for a week to sell afterwards, but I am so glad I got to spend the weekend with him!

I am so lucky to have the wonderful husband that I do! He is such a sweetheart. I cannot believe that we have already been through two years of marriage, and going on our 6th year as a couple! It has been the greatest 6 years of my life, and I am so glad that I have such a wonderful person to share it with! Thank you sweetie for the great day! I love you!

Our Past Month's Events...

This past month has been so busy for Dustin and I. But for the most part, it has been a lot of fun! We have finally been able to hang out with our closest friends a little bit more now that the house is pretty much done! Some of the pictures I am going to post are from the end of February! (sorry!)

JAZZ game

On ------- I went to Ephraim for Jordan's bridal shower! It was so much fun and her friends did a great job putting it together. Jord and I have been friends since she was probably 1 and I was 3! Our mom's are best friends so we have many, many memories together! I love her to death, and I am so happy for her! Love you Jord! After the shower I drove up to Spanish Fork to pick Dustin up from selling and we met up with Zach and Tiff for dinner at Costa Vida (then some dessert at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory..:), and the Jazz game! It was the day after Larry H. Miller passed away, and it was neat to see them honor him and his family!

Grandma Lela

Dustin's dad called and told Dustin and his sisters that the nurses at the care center had called, and their grandma wasn't doing very well. So they all went over to the Centerfield Care Center to see her, and unfortunately, the next day she passed away. Although a death in the family is always difficult, I am so glad I had the oppertunity to meet her, and we know that she is in a better place.

The following-------- they held a viewing and a funeral for her at the St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church in Richfield. It was a very nice service and her whole family was able to be there in honor of her.

JAZZ game #2

The day after the funeral Dustin and I and his parents, all went up to the Jazz vs. Nuggets game. We had great seats on the 15th row! I must admit...I am Jazz junkie when you get me to those games! I yell and scream with the best of 'em!

Gotta love D Will! (sorry the pics are a little dark, I'll fix em' later)

The Jazz's #1 fans! Woohoo!

I love this picture! Dustin and I were so tired of standing in line at the reception...we had to take a little break!
