What an awesome weekend Paul and I had! Our friends the Rasmussen's invited us to Las Vegas. They flew us there and had an awesome hotel suite waiting for us. We had fun site seeing, watching all the free shows, eating at the Cheesecake Factory, eating Gelato (my new fave), going to the M&M Store and seeing the 3D movie, riding in taxi cabs,eating crab legs, shrimp, and prime rib, lots of walking, and the best part.....spending time with my man!
We walked around the new Hard Rock Hotel
The show in front of the Mirage Hotel.
We had so many shows to choose from but we all agreed that the Wayne Brady Show was the one we needed to see. He has always been a favorite of mine. I love him in "Who's Line Is It Anyway" and "Don't Forget The Lyrics". We laughed so hard! That guy is so talented. He did a lot of improv just like on T.V. and impersonations, singing, and dancing. He put on quite the show.
We went to a wax museum at the Venetian Hotel. It was really neat. There were over a 100 figures like Brad & Angelina, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Bono, Prince, Elvis, Tim McGraw, and Madonna. Some of them looked so real...it was amazing! They also had alot of interactive rooms where we had a blast playing.

At the SLC Airport when we had just arrived home and were collecting our luggage, I looked over and saw a guy that looked really familiar. I thought that he was just someone I knew from around here but couldn't put my finger on who he was. He finally looked at me and smiled a huge cheesy grin----right then I knew who he was---WOODY HARRELSON from "Cheers". He must be here for the Sundance Festival. He was dressed in totally normal clothes and had a beanie hat on, and had almost a beard (I think that's why I didn't recognize him). Others started to recognize him and we got lost in the crowd. I was surprised how friendly and down to earth he was to everyone as I watched and as he talked his voice was unmistakable.
So we actually saw a real celeb that wasn't made out of wax after all!
