January Adventures - Part III

January Adventures Part III brings us to the end of a very eventful month. In this final installment, Nicole plays host to her sister Camille in a whirlwind weekend of fun in Las Vegas. The girls' activities include going to the Temple, movies, and shopping up a storm! It all ends with a slam-bang finish with a birthday celebration and country dancing. The adventures continue!

So, this might not qualify as an adventure in the true sense of the word, but Camille and I are two fun chickies and love getting together. Every time we do, the fun abounds! Plus we're stinkin' cute. I mean, just look at this photo. Don't we simply scream fun? Yeah, that's what I thought...

Anyway, not much to elaborate on here. We went to the movie "Inkheart" and enjoyed it. We also went to the Temple, and shopping for something very exciting which I can't write about until next January.'s not marriage-related, so don't ask! If you really want to know I'll tell you, but you have to ask me. I also accept bribes...

No, the real adventure was celebrating Amber's birthday. We always try to do fun things for birthdays (Amber and Kate took me to see the "Tournament of Kings" dinner show at the Excalibur!) and all Amber really wanted was to go to Stoney's for country dancing with all her friends. We had a nice dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe in the Palazzo first and then danced the night away at Stoney's. What a blast!!!

Possibly the best part of the night was that I got to wear my cowboy boots! They're hand-me-downs from my mom because they're a bit too small for her now, but I love them. Vintage 70's baby! Good stuff!

Another little highlight was the awesome volleyball cake I made Amber for her birthday. It turned out great! Amber's reaction was the best! She was talking on the phone and just started laughing as soon as she saw it - wish I would've taken a picture. Oh well... These will have to do.

The Birthday Girl!

Very cute cake!

Looks like we won't be coming to
Vegas after all. *frown* Sorry. But I'll be sure to remember if I do find myself in the area.
