This past week I spent visiting my family in Phx and Vegas. I have always been one to make plans, especially when on vacation. I called my sister in advance to see what was on the agenda of where we were going to eat, shop etc. so I could plan out my outfits, how much money to bring and what not. Anyway I had imagined this wonderful trip of getting a beautiful tan, having the ever so popular missionary experience on the airplane, watching dvds on the ride to Vegas, getting a perfect score on bowling, walking up and down the strip, winning the jackpot at the penny slots etc.
Well as it usually does nothing went as planned. Both AZ and Vegas were windy, I slept pretty much the whole car ride, my bowling score--well lets just say I wish we would have put up the bumpers, the strip was too busy to walk down and I walked away from my penny slot (at 1:00 in the morning) empty handed. With all that being said I HAD THE BEST TIME! This trip made me realize that it doesn't matter what we do just as long as we are with the people that we love. Seeing my mom and sisters got me so excited for motherhood. I just felt so blessed to be able to spend time with them just relaxing and having fun. Sometimes I just have to remind myself that everything will work out...usually better than I planned!
