It has definetly been a crazy last couple months....December brought a bunch of good times. I changed from the 18-25 age bracket to the 26-35....yep I turned the big 26. My big day was December 11, had a good time, but lets just say that Skyy Vodka and me wont be friends for a very long time..We all went to Musashi for dinner and headed to Planet Hollywood on the strip to my room that my old roommate got me for my birthday ( Thanks again Dustin )....Sadly we spent too much time in the room and Skyy caught up with me quick...Lets just say that being 26 you dont recover from a night like that the way you could a few years ago...it took me about a good 36 hours to feel somewhat normal...But I did have a fun night and thank my friends who spend my bday with me
In hotel room on my bday...more and better pics posted soon
...December also brought Christmas which Amanda, Hudsyn and I were grateful and lucky to fly home and spend the holidays with our families...We were home from dec. 23-jan.4th a whole 10 days, but it felt like two day...I appologize to friends I wasnt able to see on my trip home...I have some good news for the near future that I will be revealing soon....Our trip home was full of joy and lots of emotions...I hadnt been back to Washington in 6 months so it was very nice to see my family and friends. It was nice to be back in my familiar surroundings. I was introduced to my new 2nd cousin Haylee Lauren, who is beyond gorgeous and such a sweet pea.

I was so nice to be home and hang with the family and friends...I was able to spend my cousins Birthday with her on Christmas Eve an had a lot of fun. We were able to go out a couple nights with friends and it was so nice having fun at places we havent been for awhile.. We went to Roadhouse, Swiss, and Bumpys.

I LOVE washington and miss it so much...Vegas is fun, but it isnt HOME...Amanda and I spend a day at Pike Place and it was so much fun...You take forgranted things when they are right up the street, but when you cant be around it all the time you forget how amazing it is!!!
On our way to Seattle
Good ol' Pikes Place
While in Wasington I checked a few more things off the 'Bucket List' #42 " Get nose pierced, yep I know I did it!! and I LOVE it...

I also checked # 51 off the list " Fly first class" That was so much fun I dont know if I ever want to fly any other way lol :)
We also were able to bring in 2010 in Washington. We went to Cheers in Southhill and then to a house party. We kept it pretty low key and had a fun night.

December and January have been a fun a busy couple of months. I turned 26, color my hair,
New hair color
went home and lst but not least...............We have made the decision to move back to WASHINGTON!!!!! I am beyond excited. Im a little scared but cant wait....a lot we want to do in about a month. Finish my ' Things to do while I live in Vegas' list, concerts, farewell party, and say goodbye to a few close people here in Vegas. Vegas is definetly a different lifestlye then Washington. There are a lot of things in Vegas that we wont be able to do in Washington, but there are also a lot of things in washingon that you cant do in Vegas. I moved down here 25, newly single, and wanted to pursue some things I wanted to do before I settle down. I have done some amazing things here in vegas and am thankful for my journey I have had. This has been the best decision i have ever made in my life my move down here. i feel it has made me a better person, I know who I am and I know what I want out of life. There have been some tears along the way, but have been Many Many more smiles. I have become so close with my best friend Amanda and I dont think I could have done this without her. We have a life long friendship and a HUGE part of that was my move here. I want to thank her for all she has done for me and for being my shoulder to cry on, my arm to hold on to, and my sister at heart. I am so thankful for her and her family. their support though this has been undiscribable. When I made the decision to move her amandas mom wrote me a message when I asked her " what am I doing??" she said "You are reaching out and taking a risk to help you grow in a new direction, you are fulfilling a 'deep inside' dream You are helping yourself to have no regrets to look back at, are being unpredictable for the first time in your life" these words will forever be in my heart because with those words I knew I was doing the right thing for ME!!! I was being selfish and it was ok. I am so happy with my choices I have made. I am a better, stronger, happier person. I still have about a month left here and am going to make it the best it can be.
Washington here I come!!!! :)
