I think my favorite casino was the Paris! It was really cool...and not that I've ever been to Paris but it felt very much like I was walking the streets of Paris (plus a lot of slot machines thrown in for fun)
Here we are outside the Eiffel Tower...
We also went in to the Planet Hollywood Mall! That is where Holly Madison has her Peep Show. (I didn't know who she was...but Brandon LOVES her! Like really loves her! And if you know Brandon you know just how funny that is!) We were discussing how much Brandon loves her and he was explaining to me who she is and what happened? She walked out of a store and right by us! Our conversation went something like this....
Brandon: Oh my gosh...that was Holly Madison
Tara: Shut up! Are you sure?
B: Yes, that is her, right there
T: The one with the dog and the hat?
T: Well do you want to go stalk her?
T: Let's go
So we turned around and followed the way she had gone...but by then we had spent so much time being shocked that we had really seen her...that we couldn't find her again to follow her :( But let me just say that we could not stop talking about the fact that we really just saw her...at the same time we were talking about her!
So since we were not quick enough to get a real picture of her and follow her for the day....we just took many pictures of Brandon with her posters instead...
There is this one....
And this one is just funny...
But this one is my VERY FAVORITE...
We had so much fun taking that picture! I could seriously not stop laughing! And Brandon is trying so hard not to laugh for the picture! And now looking at it again I can't stop laughing! So so so so funny! (Notice the people behind him watching us and the guy sitting down giving Brandon a thumbs up!!!)
While in the mall we found a Build-A-Bear! (If you know me at all you know how much I love Build-A-Bear!) I didn't buy anything but Brandon did get a picture of the 'show girl' bear! Hee Hee!
We grabbed lunch at sbarro and got pizza....
We also watched a really lame 'rain storm'. We sat around and waited for it for like 15 minutes and it was LAME!!! A few sprinkles that hit the pool of water in the floor and some lights flashing and thunder sounds...LAME!!!
Also we went in the New York, New York, the Coke Store, the M&M Store, and many other casinos! So much fun! Kelli met up with us in the afternoon and after walking around some more we headed back to Brandon's to get ready for....
THE REBA CONCERT!!!
Stay tuned for the next blog all about it!!!!!!

Anyways so I got to Brandons and after unloading my car (if you ask Brandon I had a TON of stuff...but I would only say I had alot of stuff! hee hee!) and some very needed catching up...we decided that we wanted to go out! We WERE in Vegas for heaven's sake and it wasn't TOO late!! So we jumped in Brandon's truck and headed to the strip! We decided to head to the Treasure Island Show! It was a little more 'adult' then I remember it being as a kid but we sure had fun!
I can't remember anything else major that we did that first night. I think just walked around some more and then we headed back to Brandon's place to crash cause we were exhausted (I think it was like 2 in the morning or something which was 3 Utah time!)
Stay tuned for our Saturday adventures!
Side note: The day before I left (Thursday) my grandma called me and told me that her cousin had passed away and his funeral was in Cedar City and so that meant that her and my Uncle Boyd and Aunt Norma (Triple love them!) were driving up from Tucson! When we got talking about our plans we realized that we would probably hit Cedar City at about the same time! So we decided that I would take a break in my drive and see them for a bit! (I was so so so excited to see them! I hadn't seen Boyd & Norma since April of 2005 - way way way too long!)
As it turned out I beat them to Cedar by about 15 minutes is all! So I just found their hotel and waited in the lobby til they got there! When they pulled up it was all I could do not to run out like a 5 year old and jump up and down at their car! (Okay - maybe I did a small version of that!) Did I mention I was really excited to see them? :)
After I helped them unload the car - we headed to dinner. We found a little diner in town and had so much fun chatting away and just getting caught up! After dinner I didn't want to leave yet (I wanted to get to Vegas but just wasn't ready to say goodbye) so I went back to their hotel for a while.
My grandma was trying to get me to stay the night there with her so I didn't have to drive in the dark - I admit I was slightly tempted...until they were talking about going to bed...AT 8:30!!!! Um...no thank you! So I said my goodbyes and headed the rest of the way to Vegas!!!!
Stay tuned for more Vegas blogs...

Anyways, so back in high school and the few years after that, we spent ALOT of time up at her dad's house in Logan and in turn I became really good friends with her family! So not only do I have a best friend Brandi but I also got an extra family! Her sister Kati was in town for the week from California, we were all supposed to spend the day at Lagoon but it got canceled cuz of the 'rain'. That made Becky & I very happy but Kati, not so much! She was NOT HAPPY about the canceling of Lagoon! Anyways, we ended up having a BBQ and just hanging out at Brittni's (so much better than Lagoon!).
Me, Brandi, Cindy, Brittni w/Jazlyn
Becky, Cami w/Tyra, Kati
I just had to spend the whole time making sure Cindy didn't try to steal my toys...she was a little jealous!!!!
We had such a good time! It was fun just to get together and get caught up and see each other again!!! I LOVE them!!!
