|MinDee got to see her favorite TV show "Pawn Stars"|
|Welcome to Vegas Baby!|
|We got TWO TICKETS TO LION KING!!!|
|Eating lots - especially desserts, yum!|
That morning after a not very long "sleep in" we were up and getting ready. We headed out to do more shopping and eating. I know, we like to live it up in Vegas! We found a new shopping center south of the strip and decided to check it out. What we found was the cutest little shops, parks, and restaurants. First order of business - eating! We ate at this cozy Italian bistro. Had a great meal, and ended the meal with a fabulous array of desserts. After our lunch we looked around some and then it was off to our show, The Lion King. MinDee had gotten cheap tickets from a mutual friend of ours and was so excited to go see it. I was okay with seeing it, but I ended up loving it and almost teared up a few times. It was pretty amazing to watch, and I totally recommend anyone to go see it. After the show it was off to a little bit more shopping and eating...eating at Ruby Tuesday. I know, really? Yes really! It was a free meal and you know I don't complain about those. ;)
Vegas was a fun little get away just down the road from us here in Utah. I hope we can make this a tradition of a "girls weekend" once a year! The fun didn't last long enough because once the weekend was over it was back to reality. I had a 10k race we had signed up for. What were we thinking. Ha! Jessie, and I have actually been hitting the gym pretty faithfully since January (a New Years resolution). Jessie has been doing an awesome job. We decided that if we were going to be going to the gym weekly then we should set another goal that would have us work towards something, so we signed up for the Spectrum 10k. MinDee and I had done it once before a few years back, so I got MinDee to sign up with us too. Saturday morning arrived, and we ran the beautiful scenic Snow Canyon Park. It ended at the church down the street from my parents. I improved my time this year, and it even inspired me to get back into these little races. Not sure if I will do the big stuff like a half marathon, but I sure do like these 5 and 10k's. If you want to read more Jessie has posted on her blog, here.
