Valentines Day, Vegas Baby! Birthday, Good Things Utah, and Locks of Love.

So it's been a while since my last post because soo much has been happening. First of all Valentines day was nice! Here's the shirts that G.P. Woods gave to the girls. J gave me flowers and made up a funny poem for me. The girls got toys from G.P. Egan. They got a few more things from us. Thanks G.P.'s for all the nice things!!

It was my birthday on the 21st and I was lucky enough to be able to celebrate it in several different ways. The morning of my birthday my mom and I had tickets to go see the show "Good Things Utah" down at the ABC4 studios. It was a lot of fun to see the girls from that show and be on TV, plus we were given gift certificates for Albertson's and also free movie ticket passes to a show in which the actors were there on the show to be interviewed. It was a fun experience.

The girls at their table. I have another photo of them with me at the table but my it's in my mom's camera. I'll have to post it later if I can.

Then we went shopping and to lunch and later I was able to go see my friend Jessica and get my hair chopped off. It was a bit scary but it turned out wonderful! It was a lot of fun to sit and chat with Jess for 2 hours too! She did a great job!



I just sent my pony tail off to Locks of Love today. I'm glad to be able to give something that might just be thrown away to such a good cause. I hope my hair will help somebody. Thanks Jess!

Finally, Vegas baby!! Loads of fun!!!! We always have such a fun time in Vegas going to shows, eating yummy food, and hanging out in the van, making fun of Diane (we love you Diane!) We were able to go to an Elvis impersonator, Toxic Audio (way fun btw!!! Very recommended!) and Phantom of the Opera. ( Michelle was in Heaven ). We ate at a Rodizio Grill type place and at various buffets for breakfast, and an Italian place with a very knowledgeable waiter that talked with a low voice but with such gusto and enthusiasm for the food that it was entertaining. We also ate at Ah Sin. A chinese restaraunt located across from the waters at Bellagio (my absolute favorite thing in Vegas) We all got a lesson in eating with chop sticks and I learned of my distinct inablity not to be able to use chop sticks! Did I say that right? Thank Heavens for forks and spoons! :) We also got to see the waters "go" a few times while we were eating. Nice!! Way fun vacation!! We also went up to the top of Paris' Eiffel tower for the first time since we've been to Vegas. It was very beautiful up there! Thanks so much to the Wood's for all their generosity!! It was a great trip! Plus, I got to go on 2 plane rides. How great is that?

This is the only picture I took with my camera in Vegas - we go there often - It's at the Italian place with the knowledgeable waitor.

That's so funny you were just in Vegas, because Eric and I just got back from St. George and Vegas last week. I wonder if we might have crossed your path at some point. Sounds like you had a great birthday the new 'do!

I was watching GTU that morning, how on earth did I miss you? Must not have been paying enough attention! Your hair looks adorable Julie! Glad you had a great birthday.
