I Love the 80s!

Did you know I love the 80s? Not just the show, but the whole culture that existed in it. One of my favorite things about the 80s was Punky Brewster. In honor of our friend Brooke's birthday (she was born in the 80s), we had an 80s themed party.

I always wanted to be like her.

My eighties look. Bright colors, vintage 80s jewelry and I even used my very first krimper to do my hair.

My AWESOME shoes! Magenta, flat and fishnet over clear plastic.

Brooke went for the Madonna look.

The Miami Vice look. Also take note of "Better Off Dead" on the flatscreen, sneaker flats and leg warmer on the girl that is sitting.

I as well wore scarves in my hair, along with loose button ups and leggings.

Athletic in the 80s.

Shane was talked into dressing as white trash 80s. He even shaved all but his mustache off. We darkened it with mascara.

When the Sun Goes Down......

Kenny Chesney was in town the day before Pioneer Day for his Sun City Carnival Tour. I went with Alli, Mom, Dad, Lydia, Aunt Betty, Andy and Amanda. It was great! This was my first Kenny concert, plus we got to see Lady Antebellum and Miranda Lambert as well.

Funny fat guy dancing on the floor. It was so hot! I understand why he wasn't wearing a shirt.

Waiting for Kenny to start. There was a bit of down time because Sugarland decided not to perform as scheduled. This was before Alli and I went on our quest for beer cups.

Its a simple wine, it's summertime!

Me watching Kenny!

Kenny again.

Someone gave him a Utes hat. He looks so good in red!!!

3 is a magic number....yes it is!

Shane and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary this year. Somehow, and not by my pestering, Shane recommended going to Vegas again. We did a couple of different things that we haven't done in Vegas before and stayed there for the whole weekend. It rained while we there so we were able to enjoy the view that our room had to offer. We stayed at New York New York with a strip view room. I finally got to see the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, something I have never done in the many times that I have been there. (Shane was expecting a little more from the sign.)
I was being a dork trying to take my picture with the view.

Our room was in the Empire State Building.

This was the view from our room.

We also took advantage of the entertainment at New York New York. It is home to the Cirque Du Soleil show Zumanity. I have been wanting to see a show forever and Shane was curious to see what it was. The show was amazing and set in a very "intimate" setting. Most of the humor was crude and inappropriate, but the show was AWESOME!!!!! I highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor and that appreciates the performing arts. Be warned...there is nudity and a full fledged DRAG QUEEN! LOVED IT!!! I want to plan another trip to just get away and play.
