Las Vegas, I Never Thought I'd See You Again

So last December my parents surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas for one night to see the Beatles Cirque de Soleil show for my birthday. It was great to have just a little taste of the city, the sparkle was so captivating, but I don't think I would have been able to spend more than one night there.
As a certified homebody, the hustle and bustle of The Strip was just too much for me.

But here I am finding myself going back AGAIN! The only difference is that this time I'm celebrating both graduating from four exhausting years of college AND a major reunion with my best friends from high school! I'm determined to embrace the city this time. After all, with college life over as I know it I think I can afford to let loose for a few days right? Here's where I'm staying. Yay!

Oh and just as a side note.....Westboro Baptist Church is picketing my graduation!!!! What the...? Apparently they are on a tour of the U.S. picketing all those that they feel are going to hell. This is a church that's website is honestly These people are terrible, hateful people. I hope that someday they realize the truth of that.

WOW...I guess there's been a slow down in the number of funerals of gays and soldiers lately, since that's where they usually protest. There are really no words to describe how much I dislike these people and I hope your graduation isn't affected by their actions. Congratulations!
