a pool party

August 20, 2010


I never finished posting the pictures from my trip to Vegas. My best friends and I got a really great deal on a suite at the Venetian. The best part was having easy access to TAO Beach, although once we got there we realized how small it is! I was SUPER excited when I found out Lauren Conrad was hosting. I have a little girl crush on her so I was really hoping to see her. I even put a braid in my hair a la LC. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures worthy of sharing. She was hidden behind a lot of people in this huge cabana area but I saw her doing press pictures and dancing with friends. It was pretty exciting!


highlight of the day: otter pops!!

blue tongues!


Hanna and I were trying to do a Spice Girls pose and Lizzie and Pauline did KISS?

Best picture I got of her! haha

I hope you all have a great weekend! What are your plans?
Matthew and I are going down to San Diego tomorrow to see his new baby nephew! I can't wait!

  5. Oh my GOSH! You've been sitting on a gold mine with these, haha! Isn't it crazy to think that if she were still doing the Hills this would have been filmed for it, and you might have been on the show!? Oh, what could have been, haha! Have a great weekend love!

  21. Hey! I've come across your blog via 'Lacey in the City'... & thought I'd rather a look as wondered if it's anything like my blog, so rather happy to see that you also write about your relationship! I guess we'd funnily enough be M loves W, though we call ourselves Wegan (Whitney + Megan). Just a bit different in that we're both girls, & long distanced (UK to Hawaii!)

    Anyhoo I look forward to catching up on your blog!
