VEGAS VACATION (WITH WHAT MIGHT AS WELL BE THE GRISWOLD FAMILY)

Well it's been a hot minute since I was on here. Well first let's start with Christmas I guess. Christmas Eve has always been spent at my Grandparents house, eating and exchanging gifts. Since my Grandma passed away last month (and my grandpa about 3 years ago) we had one last hooray at their house. It was bittersweet not having them there, but nice to get to see the house one last time. Christmas day was spent with my family and Spencer gave me some great presents including some Kate Spade earrings, a bluetooth speaker, and some Sorel boots. We were planning on going to Vegas right after Christmas but because of the storm, decided to wait until after New Years Day. 

Vegas was so nice. Even though it was still a little chilly on the first few days, it felt like spring break compared to Utah's 8 degree weather! Our 5 day stay in Vegas included lots of card games, movies, food, and dog walks. Friday night I took the Hansen family on a little adventure. Last time I came down I was really bummed because I wanted to try a Sprinkles Cupcake and Spencer didn't want to take me to the strip and promised we would do it over Christmas. At the same time, Shake Shack has finally opened a location in Vegas on the strip, and on top of that my sister-in-law Holly and I had gift cards to H&M (also on the strip). So I took the family who never goes to the strip, to the strip! The hard thing about it was that H&M, Sprinkles, and Shake Shack were all in different casinos, meaning we had to park in 3 different parking garages and brave Las Vegas Blvd to get to each one of them. Luckily for me my in-laws are the bomb and didn't mind me dragging them on this casino hopping adventure. And surprisingly Spencer got even more clothes than I did at H&M, and my father-in-law "loved the music" that H&M was playing and had a good time there. Wtf? Anyway, I'm not a sweets girl but I'm a sucker for a good cupcake and Sprinkles did not disappoint! Someone put one of those right next to me house please!! Shake Shack was also fabulous and most of my party thought it was better than In-N-Out. I don't eat beef so I can't really weigh in on the burger debate but the fries are better and plus they have hot dogs for people with a child's palate like me! Woop woop!

^^The line was out the door for Shake Shack but it moved fast and was totally worth it! 


My brother-in-law found this (2nd hand) topless swimsuit thing (or at least that's what we think it is). The real question is who wore it better? Spencer seems to be enjoying it more, but zero looks much cuter! 


^^And Zero enjoyed her favorite spot right outside the back door, basking in the sun. I think she had forgotten what warm weather felt like. You and me both girlfriend. 

It was so hard to leave Vegas the last day because it was 65 degrees, but it really made Spencer and I realize how much we want to move down there after graduation. On the drive home Spencer and I talked about our new years resolutions which I hope to post about later this week. I've been looking forward to this year for so long and all the changes that are coming. I can't wait to finally move out of Utah County after 7 long years here!
