Las Vegas!!

So I went back home for Memorial Day weekend! It was one crazy, hectic short trip! There was so much to do, so many things I wanted to do! and no time to do them all.
I was excited to see my family! It was the first time I had seen them since I moved out here.
I got in late thursday night, about 11:30 Pacific Time. I hardly slept on the flight, so I was tired. After we got my baggage, which was one of the last ones out of the claim (of course) we headed home! But we stopped for a bite to eat at In N Out first! I just had to have one of their double double protein style burgers! Yumm! I had been craving one of those since I left!
We had to get up early to head to St George. me, Mom, Mama, and Karli all went up there so that I could find a wedding dress! First I got my hair done by my friend Kate who is in hair school. It was good to see her and how much she has grown! After the salon we went to Bridal Elegance. I tried on SOoo many dresses. This nice girl Kendra helped me, and we went through and picked out the favorites and finally narrowed it down to "The One". So we got that out of the way and went shopping for the rest of the day! We got back to town around 730. I went to go visit The Burn's. It was good to see them! I spent a lot of time at their house before I left. I tried to go visit some other people, but no one was home. Then my whole family went to see Indiana Jones! It was good!! I've always like the Indiana Jones movies though!
Saturday was interesting. I had to get up early because I had a facial at 8. Chong was the lady that was giving me the facial. I was a little nervous, she didnt speak very good English, and there was NO ONE else in the shop...I am still alive though and I still have a face so she did a good job.
After that me and my mom went and picked up my sister and went to go get a body wrap. It was awesome! Me and my sister both lost 1% body fat and 4-5 inches total just from sitting there in the wrap for an hour. It also has a lot of health benefits. I am anxious to go back and get another one!
Then we went to my friend Shaqueita's reception. It was so cool to see her and her husband! I also got to see several old friends that I hadnt seen in a long time! We all got to catch up and talk about our lives!
I was supposed to hang out with Ann that night, but she had to go off and get engaged so I'll let that one go! We got engaged the same week, and we will be getting married one week apart! :)
Sunday was church day. I went to my parents ward, then went to singles ward to see some of my friends. There was about 15 total people there because it was a holiday weekend, but I saw the leaders and got to talk to them for a couple of minutes.
We had carne asada for dinner, that me and my mother bravely went into the Carniceria for. We were the only white people, and it felt as if we were in a completely different country. I even got to speak a little espanol to the guy behind the counter telling him how much meat we wanted. We all relaxed the rest of the day and some friends stopped by to say hello!
Im glad I got to see my family and friends, even though it was short! I will be out there again in August!
