Get off my case. i was in Vegas.

Disclaimer: this will be long. I just feel it necessary. So read quick or somesing.

Sometimes Vegas calls your name and sometimes you just have to obediently heed that call. Well at least that’s what we did this weekend. Whoever says mormon girls can’t have fun in Vegas is seriously seriously mistaken.

So now I’m going to give a play-by-play of our adventure of course highlighting the fun and exciting parts.

We all packed up Friday and planned to head out by 10 but 2 ½ hours later after 2 visits to Big-O’s.....

.......and 2 visits to the Kearns home we pulled out. Stopping in provo to pick up the beloved A Rich at Mcdonalds. While there we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to Plank. Hehe. We’re such big nerds.

The 6 hour drive went relatively quick considering the fact that we had 5 girls in a little car with NO IPOD ADAPTER. So we took to the old-fashion way of C.D.’s and conversation to get us through. & good news it worked. Time flies when you talk about marriage & go emo & stuff.

We got to Vegas and drove to Courtney’s brothers house. They are the cutest & so nice for letting us stay with them. Dinner at BJ’s (which we all secretly think stands for Beiber Justin’s). with the most COMPLICATED check of my life. I don’t think Vegas-ans really like splitting the check 5 ways?  But what else do you do when you are a poor college kid? Then off to H&M! which is 3 stories of heaven. I think we spent 2 hours there. Giddy the whole time because of our remarkable finds & savings.

Day 2 started off at The original pancake house (which is seriously fabulous.) where we scouted out mormons, bore our testimonies of Vegas, and told Densley the food sucked (we were lying of course. she is just on a crazy diet).

Then we set off for FOREVER 21. Of course.. mind you it is the biggest one in the entire world. Which explains why court & I completely lost the other 3 for an hour & 1/2 .  No joke. We all found lovely items that we just ‘had to have’. Hal takes the cake for the most dolla bills spent. You go glen coco.

Then we finally made our way out onto the strip. We took lots of pictures & ate dinner at Serendipity. Cute atmosphere, pricey delicious food & a snobby waitress.

Then we went over to Caesars palace where it suddenly dawned on us that there is no better place than Caesars to make a music video. & why not do it to a song that was sung originally in Greece. Well in a Disney movie based in Greece. Despite the hundreds of weird stares & laughs we got it turned out pretty well.

Okay so I know this is wayyy too long but only 1 more story. I promise. On our drive home we were all getting tired and maybe a little bored? But don’t tell anyone I admitted it. Until a white truck pulled up along side of us. Must have been fate because it was full of boys. They waved, we waved, their number slid out the window, we called it, they seemed & sounded fun, and we figured out they were good boys (RM’s to be exact ;), so we facebook stalked them, and then met them in filmore for dinner. Hahaha. That was a VERY summed up version to a VERY funny story. Needless to say.. we made some friends & thank the heavens for that!

well in conclusion: go to Vegas with your besties & confirm everyone suspicions that Mormons are bizarre. it really is fun :)
