Blogging: I never said it would be easy....

Well, Thanksgiving is over and I am back in the thralls of Orem life. It was quite the amazing trip for me. I drove down to Pheonix via Las Vegas and realized by the time I got to St. George I was too tired to push the whole way in one night (the fact I didn't head out until 3pm didn't help), so I booked a room at the Palms Hotel in Vegas for the night. I was pretty hesitant about staying in Vegas by myself for the night, I didn't really know what I was going to do.
When I got there, I was upgraded to a one-bedroom, two bath suite and the master bath had a jetted tub! That was absolutely wonderful, especially after driving for so long. I know, what am I complaining I not the same girl who drove from Alaska to Utah earlier this year?
After my deliciously long, jetted soak, I decided to head down to the casino for a while and try my luck on the quarter slots. I set a limit of $20 and watched the amount yo-yo up and down for a while until I hit the big money on the wheel of fortune and cashed out with $387! I also met some pretty neat people from L.A. and played with them for a while. All in all, it was a pretty fabulous night!

Needless to say, I arrived in Pheonix in pretty high spirits. I was especially excited about being able to spoil my nephews: at the zoo, at chuck e. cheese, at the movies (we saw Bolt, it was pretty cute)! Thanksgiving with the family was a lot of fun, lots of food and lots of Rock Band!! Good times for all!
