Super 8, Pawn Shops, and Kevin Costner...

Wow, I have been so out of touch with my blogging world lately.  I've just been so busy and I feel horrible that I've not kept up with you all!   So if anyone's still reading this boring blog, I appreciate it!  

I just got back from Vegas last week.  I was there for my Arbonne conference, and it was a lot of fun, and very motivational.    I went with my whole team and we had a great time! 

 I am soooo ready to kick start my business into overtime.   And soon, very soon, I will be earning my Benz!   Can you tell I really want this car?

Wednesday night after our conference, we decided to go sing karaoke, so we asked the concierge at the MGM, where we stayed, where a good place would be.  She recommended a place called "Ellis Island."   Well, here's a little fact about Ellis Island that you may not know.... it's connected to a Super 8 motel.  That should tell you all you need to know.   Needless to say the 2 cabs full of friends that I took there were not too thrilled with my choice, haha.   But it was entertaining to say the least!  We got to see some Elvis impersonators, Las Vegas locals, and a few girls who I'm pretty sure were "ladies of the evening."    It was a memorable night at least!!    Some of my friends were a little frightened though.
Sandy didn't have any love for "Ellis Island." 

The next day we drove even further into skeezy Vegas when my friend Erin took me to a pawn shop!   Haha, apparently it's a pawn shop that's on a show called "Pawn Stars" that she watches.  I dunno..... just looked like a pawn shop to me.  Anyone watch that show?

The last night of the conference Arbonne paid Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, to come sing for us.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but they were really good!  We made our way to the front row and I got a pick from the band! one seems to share my excitement when I tell them that.  haha.   

We had a great time and got to hear some wonderful speakers.   My favorite quote came from best selling author, Dr. Betrice Barry:

"You can be dumb all by yourself, no need to join up with stupid."

Haha, love it!  Hope you all have a great weekend!!!


  1. I'm glad to know Kevin Costner's band wasn't horrible ;)

    Looks like a great time!

  2. Dude! You seriously enjoyed V-town. oh and I'm rooting for you to get that Benz. You deserve it.
