Movie Mania!

I'm sure no one will find this post at all interesting, however - - - I am bored at work and shall post what I want! This last week has been movie madness for me. I've been to 3, yes count it - - THREE, movies! Its like a record! So I thought I would share my views on them, since I scored and 2 of the 3 were amazing!

Movie #1 - - The Proposal

I loved this movie! It was a great girls night out show :) Full of laughs and even got a little teary eyed! Gals - - get out and see this!

Movie #2 Year One

There were some good laughs. But overall it only gets a so-so from me. Wait for it to come out on Redbox if you really want to see it!

Movie #3 Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

AWESOME!!! Chase and I loved it! We decided we must own these movies for life! Everyone needs to see it! Its funny, action, love story.... It is just intense!! SEE IT THIS WEEKEND!

** Vegas Vacation **

Last weekend we headed out to VEGAS again for a little early summer vacation and for the International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Convention!!
A little something for me to earn some extra hours (50 to be exact) for school by attending. We invited the Jaques and Binghams to come have some fun with us (and we sure hope that is what they had!).
We flew out Saturday morning and arrived in sunny Las Vegas around noon... walked the strip until we could check in at our hotel, and then lounged at the pool for a bit.

Later that night we went to a Cirque de Soliel show called KA. It was an amazing experience. For those who have never been to one I am highly suggesting it! I was in awe the entire show. I'm still baffled by all of the amazing things that went into it.
Sunday I spent my time at the convention and had a good time. There really isn't much to tell about it. There were a ton of good deals, and of course I came home empty handed! Oh well... next year!
Monday was our day to leave, but not until later in the evening! We had fun and kinda did our own things. It was a long day, and a great trip. I am glad to be home though! I lost $15 on the slots, but got some sweet mardi gras beads from some run down place in "Old Vegas"! Oh and I can't forget to mention my attempt at rebellion - - - the trashy airbrushed tat I got that lasted a whole day!! I love Las Vegas!

Crazy/Beautiful Weekend!!

Chase and I had quite the eventful weekend! Friday night was Christian's graduation from Morgan High School! We are so proud of him and the accomplishments he has made throughout life. Congratulations to Christian and good luck in the future!

Saturday was an amazing day. We got to watch our adorable niece, Kinley, during the morning while her mom and dad (Skyler & Heather) were taking out their endowments at the temple and get her ready to meet her parents at the sealing. As their one year anniversary this little family was sealed to each other in the Salt Lake City temple. It was a great day and we are so happy for them and the choices they have made and the examples they are to us. Congratulations Sky & Heather!!

Later Saturday afternoon we went to Bountiful for a graduation BBQ for my "little brother" Braxton. He graduated from Davis High on Friday! For those of you who don't know I have what I like to call a second family whom I have been very close to since the age of 12!! We had such a great time catching up with them! Congrats to Brax who made it through and can't wait to move away! Love you guys!

(Braxton & Brecklee - - my little bro & sis!)

On Sunday we braved the weather and went to Hill Air Force Base to watch the Air Show. It was awesome and we had so much fun. Even in the 5 minute monsoon that blew threw and soaked us! Our favorite was the Thunderbirds. We were in awe at the precision and teamwork that went into their performance. I told Chase I felt like I was in the movie Top Gun! It made me proud to be an American!

I'm so happy we got to spend an entire weekend together! That hasn't happened in quite some time thanks to my Saturday schooling! I hope everyone else enjoyed their weekend as much as we did!
