That was too short of a vacation, but totally worth it! We got to Vegas around noon (vegas time, I always forget there's a time difference) got to our suite, and it was just like the pictures! Luxurious! The bed was HUGE and sooo comfortable. I told my mom " it was so big, I didn't even touch Andrew all night!" which she said, "that's not good.." but I just meant I roll around A TON and always seem to smack Andrew. It was probably good for him too. Can I just say, when I have my real house, we are having a TV in the bathroom. I loved that perk! So we settled in, snacked, went out to the pool in their big comfy soft lounge chairs, and sweated. It was incredibly hot! After that we showered, went to Caesar's Palace, ate, shopped, watched the fountains at the Bellagio, and headed back. I promptly fell asleep after getting into my complimentary robe and flicked on "rebels and red coats" on PBS. That knocked me out.
Today we got up, watched a little "Family Feud" before we checked outta our suite, then went to the M&M and COCA COLA stores. Sadly we had to make our way back to Provo for a bon fire activity for church. It was great to get out of Utah for a day and a half.
I would recommend Vegas to everyone, at least day time Vegas. At night they have people flicking little cards with naked women on them at you. Ally said she was lucky because they'd try to give them to Derek, then see she was pregnant and stop. She was lucky! Hello! He's holding his wife's hand! He doesn't want "girls direct" to him! So, stay in the light!
Here are some pics Ally took, I was too lazy to take my camera.

So this is the last week before I start school again. I had to do something! I have 3 days off of work at the end of the week, so we're going down to VEGAS with another couple we're really good friends with. I am so excited. Sun, Sun, SUN is what I'm looking forward to, it's been insanely dark and cloudy and rainy the past two weeks. Oh, and did I mention we're staying at the world famous VENETIAN resort? Ya, I'm pretty excited about that too! So, Thursday and Friday this week, this is where I'll be! Can't wait!
Here's the hotel's description of the suite:

Andrew had a company get together yesterday. They had a taco bar, then played softball. Right at the end of the game, he hit the ball nice low and deep into the left outfield. We all knew it was coming, a home run! As he rounded 3rd, the outfielders had regrouped and were throwing the ball home faster than we thought they would. There was only one thing he HAD to do. Slide into home. You guessed it. He was safe.
Luckily he has me to bandage him up!
You're lucky aren't you babe? hm... Well, I also gave him a hair cut last week, does it look too bad? It was my first time ever giving a haircut. At least there aren't bald pieces all over his head!

With my "talent" (more like lack there of) for sewing. I had a bunch of scraps left over from the pillows, so today a stumbled through making a scripture case from my favorite fabric. Not too bad for my first try! All hand sewn as well!

So, I needed some type of change to our apartment, I can't believe we've been here for almost a year! I saw some sweet pillows at TJ Max but they were $20 each. Sadly, that's not in our budget at the moment. Instead of buying new pillows my friend took me up to this amazing store in South Jordan that had the cutest fabrics. I LOVE cute fabric, I felt like buying it all. But, I only bought what I needed to cover 5 pillows in the living room. I re-covered 5 pillows for the price of $17, pretty thrifty huh? I have two complete, but the sewing machine we were using broke, I'll post more pics when they're all finished. Meanwhile here are the two finished, and the other two patterns I got.
PS- can you guess which one is my favorite fabric?
Oh and here are some pics of practice cupcakes for Ally's baby shower. My favorite is the brown one with the blue foot print to the far right.
