Esthetics Convention 2010

Last weekend I headed off to the Esthetics's Convention in Vegas!
(Lots of pictures. Not going to apologize cause lets be honest... pictures are the best part!)
We left bright and early Saturday morning.
Our flight went fast!
Although I did get sick from it.
Flying is not my forte'.
But it was fun!
There was a whole team of baseball players from Vegas on our flight.
And we even did a little gambling ON the plane.
We put our seat number on a dollar bill and put it in this big plastic bag,
then they pick out one and whoever seat was on the bill got all the money.
I didn't get so lucky.
(Chalise, Tisa & I) (Mika, Britt & Me!)
We jumped in a cab at the airport to go check into our hotel before we headed to the convention.
our Ukrainian taxi driver took us to the wrong hotel and then left.
So we had to walk down the street and around the corner to our correct hotel. Then we headed off to the convention!
Our hotel was RIGHT across the street so it was a nice lil walk.
We grabbed some lunch: And then got to the good stuff!!
Holy smokes.
It was all SOOO overwhelming!!
So much cool stuff to look at!
I was lucky to have Erin there with me.
She is the esthetician at Color My Nails and she was helping me the whole time.
I felt like I was job shadowing!
We kept getting asked if we were sisters.
We just giggled and said yes :)
(Chalise, Erin & Me) My feet and arms were KILLING me at the end of the day.
Please notice our ginormous bags:

We lugged our stuff back to the hotel and were going to get freshened up for dinner
but then found something better to do. After jumping our lil monkey hearts out,
we headed to dinner with the rest of these cute girls. Then someone decided to walk the strip after dinner.
After walking around a convention all day,
walking the strip isn't too appealing.
After about an hour of walking & getting sexually harassed,
we decided we should head back to the hotel.
An hour after that we FINALLY found a damn cab.
You see them everywhere down there,
But let me tell you they are impossible to get!
It was so nice to get in bed that night.
Sunday morning we got up and walked about 2 miles to the closest Walgreen's to get some breakfast.
It was an interesting trip seeing is how the lady at the hotel told us it was a 10 min walk.
Once we hiked to and from Walgreen's,
we headed over to the Hilton to get our tan on!!
There was this tree on the way that I thought looked like a GIANT pineapple!
So I HAD to get a picture.
YUM. It was so nice to lay out but it was SO hot!!
The sun kicked my butt cause I got heat stroke or exhaustion.
(I don't know which one is which)
After we laid out I should have stayed at the hotel and rested,
but instead we went shopping!
You know the feeling of when you are SO exhausted all you want to do it cry?
That's so how I felt that night.
We went to P.F. Chang's for dinner.
It was tasty but our waitress took her sweet time!
We seemed to keep ourselves entertained though.
After dinner all I wanted to do was eat some ice cream and lay in bed.
Of course a Ben & Jerry's had to be hard to find.
I looked it up on my phone and told the cab driver where to go,
but he thought he knew better so he took us to the Paris Hotel.
Once we got in we ask a security guard where it was and he told us to go to Planet Hollywood next door.
Of course.
Nothing can be easy right!
And of course the Ben & Jerry's was all the way on the OTHER side of the mall.
So as we strolled through the mall,
anxiously awaiting my ice cream,
there was a window display that made me come to a screeching hault.
I honestly cant say I have ever fallen in love with a pair of shoes at first sight.
So I run inside to see and try them on.
As I am walking around the store in my soon to be shoes,
I spot a purse that matches.
Again, I have never fallen in love with a purse at first sight.
I have never spent that much on a pair of shoes and a purse before.
I was having a lil bit of an anxiety attack,
hence my face:
After a nice lil call to the hubs,
I felt better about my wonderful purchase.
It was SO worth it.
We made our way back out to find a cab and decided we had to gamble a little.
I mean we were in Vegas for goodness sakes.
I put in a dollar and I won 12 cents!!
Never cashed it in.
The voucher is still in my purse.
When we got back to the hotel,
we attempted to pack everything up.
Just in case you didn't notice our ginormous bags before,
please notice now:
On Monday,
we finished packing up our things and headed on our way.
Although I am fully aware that wearing heels to walk around an expo isn't the smartest idea...
I was just too dang excited to wear my new shoes and purse!
Chalise & Tisa headed off the to airport and I went to the expo with the other girls.
Along with a massive headache,
I'm pretty sure all of us got a little bit of food poisoning from Chang's the night before.
It was a painful day.
In heels.
We did one last run through the expo and then headed back to the hotel.
Our flight wasn't till later that night and we had already checked out of our rooms,
so we just hung out in the bathroom lounge for a few hours trying to get all of our purchases to fit in our suitcase, and made a few interesting friends.
By this time I was ready to fall on my face,
so I didn't get any pictures.
We went to the airport a few hours early to grab some dinner and relax.
As we were checking our bags,
mine came back as over weight and they were going to charge me $50 bucks for being 7 lbs over the limit.
So my friends and I were frantically ripping things out of my suitcase and trying to fit them into a carry on.
I felt like my things were flying everywhere!
Luckily we got it all situated and I didn't have to pay!
On the plane ride home we sat next to one of the singers from Jericho Road! (sarcasm)
He kept trying to hit on us until he realized we were all married.
Then he put his headphones in and kept to himself.
This is us sad to be leaving Vegas,
even though secretly I was SO happy to be home.
Regardless of all the chaos and getting sick a few times,
it was so much fun!
I learned so much for next year and by the time I go next year I will be graduated.
I better start saving now.
I spent ALOT of money in the span of 3 days. :S
If you or anyone you know would be interested in hosting a glitter toe party,
PLEASE contact me!
I am now available to do them outside of school!

Early Birthday Surprise!

As you have read on recent posts,
I am a little puppy hungry!
The last few weeks or even MONTHS,
Ryan and I have had a battle over getting a puppy.
He has been telling me no that we cant
and that HE would have to take alot of the responsibility that he doesn't want.
Well the little shit was LYING.
He has been planning on getting me a puppy for my birthday next month,
and some how I spoiled the surprise for myself!
So now he says I have a month to find one!
I have already been doing alot of research and looking,
and I think I may have found the one!
I wont be getting it till my birthday so I have a whole month of excitement and preparation to look forward to!
I am wanting a mini dachshund that is tan & black.
(as shown above)
Ryan and I have been thinking up names for the pup,
but I would love to hear suggestions from you!
Hooray for puppies!!
P.S. I have the BEST husband EVER.

My one true love...

Yes, Ryan of course...
But I am talking about another love...
I really think I have a problem.
As hard as I try to break my addiction,
I can't usually go for more than a few days without it.
Especially with Easter recently,
I have an excess of it,
even after giving half of it away!
I always seem to have some in my purse.
And recently I was refered to as the treat master! lol

Nothing is more rewarding after a long exhausting day than a nice sugar high!
Anyone have a suggestion of kickin the sugar tooth??
Suga-tine patches perhaps??
Its getting the better of me!

Easter Weekend!

What a nice relaxing weekend!
Friday I only had to work half day since it was Good Friday.
It gave me alot of extra time to run some errands for the Easter bunny!
Later that night we went with our darling friends to Tepanyaki.
This was Ryan's first time ever going! Once our bellies were full of yummy food we decided to hit up a movie!
But since the boys and us girls couldn't agree on a movie,
we ended up going from date night to girls night!
The boys went and saw some Titan movie while we went and saw Bounty Hunter!
We were those obnoxious girls taking pictures during the previews!
Sorry everybody!
Saturday was pretty quiet.
I ran my errands and I got a nice little visit from Kenzie and I took her to lunch!
Sure do love my sis in law!
Sunday we got up bright and early to go to brunch with some friends.
But of course before we went we had to get our Easter baskets!
Ryan was so excited.
We both hid each others in the closet and somehow we just ended up sitting in there as we went through our baskets and ate some candy!
Ryans basket:
My basket: Ryan sure did a much better job on my basket than I did on his.
Its just too much fun to spoil each other!
We went to our favorite place for brunch with some of our favorite people!
As soon as we got home we turned on conference and slept till we went to my parents for Easter dinner!
Happy Easter!
Hope the Easter Bunny treated you well!

Too much candy + lots of yummy food=
Lots of this:


Dont forget to schedule your facial!

This is the last week they are 50% off!
