Dear Academy of Country Music Awards

Thank you for giving me an excuse to:
  1. Go to Las Vegas for the weekend (22hour road trip) with the girls
  2. Harmonize to N*sync in the car
  3. Stay in the MGM Grand and have some quality pool time in 107-degree weather (I love tan lines)
  4. Dress up fancy and attend the Awards show in style
  5. Be in the same vicinity as Nicole Kidman, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Jewel, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland (new fave) and Reba McEntire...just to name a few...I feel like we all connected
  6. Eat an In-N-out cheeseburger (animal style) and a strawberry shake
  7. Reconnect with my inner cowgirl
Best weekend trip for under $100 of my life.
So far.


*Of course, NONE of this would have been possible without the hookup from Noelle's sister's best friend who works for CBS and gave us the tickets. Thank you sister's best friend, thank you Erica, thank you Noelle (and thank you Laura for driving 12 hours - getting us there and back safe-n-sound).

You so rocked the event. Ryan & I looked for you in the "highlights" on extra (cause like we'd watch the actual broadcast :) ). No luck though. You looked hot too. I'm sure you gave the stars a run for their money. Can't wait to hear how it was. Come on over tonight for dinner if you like. We are BBQ'ing with a friend from the ward.

I love the dress. Seriously, you are SMOKING!!! I wondered if I would see you on TV, but alas, no luck (and I actually watched some of the show...why, because I have a husband who really likes country and he's sucked me back in a little bit). Please tell me you got to at least rub shoulders with someone famous, or that you were in the crowd when Keith Urban performed. Oh yeah..SO JEALOUS by the way (even with the 107-degree weather that you had).

I do not want to hear any more remarks about my previously-worn scandalous outfits, thank you very much. For the record, however, you look GORGEOUS in the pics...maybe I should have you give me a makeover? It'll be an excuse to get up to Utah? hmmmmm....
