from the Calgary International Airport. The current time is 2:04 a.m. The current temperature sucks compared to the glorious 30 degrees I was experiencing a mere 12 hours ago in Las Vegas. My Dear Nathan and I are in the airport waiting for our 7:15 flight from here back to Edmonton. We arrived here from Vegas just an hour ago and are so very excited about our camp out here :P

Las Vegas was great but another trip is definitely in order...you know one where I am not pregnant or with my family. Actually I had a great time with my family this weekend. My little brother got married this weekend. For those of you who know my brother you will understand when I say that the weekend was not without a little Joe drama. In the end it all turned out beautifully though. I have a new sister-in-law who is just made for my brother and I got to go somewhere warm.
I can't wait to get home and have a good sleep in my own bed. I cannot believe how easily time slips away in a place that literally never sleeps. I kept wondering why I was so tired only to look at the clock and see that it was some crazy hour. I think that the earliest that we made it to bed was 2:00 and of course, that was after donating some money to some hard up slot machines.
We didn't arrive until late Saturday night and with all the plans that my brother had made for us we did not have an opportunity to check out any of the Cirque Du Soleil shows, of which there are 6 (by my count...there could be more). We did go to a burlesque show at the Crazy Horse in the MGM Grand which was pretty neat but not a show I will soon be attending soon again, at least not with my parents and brother that is.
I got to spend an afternoon in the spa at our hotel. I got my nails done and a pedicure. My Mom also graciously offered to pay for me to get my hair done. I am sure that if she knew that it was going to cost her more than $300.00 she may have reconsidered. I am going to admit right now that I am a horrible pregnant person and got my hair dyed. I figure that I dyed my hair while I was pregnant with Darian and there isn't anything wrong with her so I should be OK this time too.
I am sure that there is more to tell but as of right now I have t minus 5 hours to go in this god-forsaken airport and I want to go put on some comfy clothes for my long night....
