"Shut up and put your money where your mouth is, that's what you get for waking up in Vegas!"

I'm really excited to see Katy Perry in July and super stoked for Vegas in August!
 I just booked my ticket last night! We are going to celebrate a friends birthday and this is also my friend Nicole's first time ever to Vegas, so I had to go!!! This makes me want to go shopping for new outfits, but right now I'm downsizing.....The Heights and their small closets, meh.
I wish the day would throw it's self in third, I'm so ready for the weekend!! I've got a birthday party, unpacking, church, organizing, gardening, family time and more unpacking!!!

Chukka's the name Polo's the game

Yesterday evening Greg and I attended our first polo match. Thanks to Sloane (The Director of Events, way to go friend!) we had a very nice front row box with some friends!!! Playing Polo takes a lot of skill! The jockys are on the horse with a mallet and trying to get the Polo ball to your goal. It was a great game and very exciting. We happen to make it to the last game of the season where it was BYOB! People had wine, beer, champagne, meat and cheese!! It was awesome!! The boxes are split between 6 people are very affordable for each season, after sitting in such desired spot I feel so spoiled! Makes me want to sign up ASAP to lock in those sweet seats!!!
 More pictures to come, especially of the divot stomp (just like in pretty women)!!!!!!

                                              So for now a picture of the beautiful awards!!!

God called me today!

Before we settle down in the Heights I decided to check out the all Saints Catholic Church down the road. I normally go to Saint Anne's Catholic Church, but I decided to give this church a go this afternoon. As I sat down I started to admire the traditional church with beautiful murals of saints on the alter, stained glass and the ceiling painted as the nights sky. BEAUTIFUL!!! I sat in peace praying for family, friends and the special needs children in front of me when God called. A women came up to me and said "would you like to do offertory today?" I let her know that I was not a member of this particular church and she answered "Well if your Catholic it's fine and we would love to have you."
I said okay!

I anxiously awaited taking up the gifts, it was my first trip there and I already felt so welcomed and at ease. The readings and gospel were all about God's calling and whether or not we go to him for the big things or the little. The message and being asked to take up the gifts felt so fitting. Although I'm a member of Saint Anne's, I'm interested in learning more about All Saints and the possibility of joining this church. There is nothing better than receiving messages and reminders from God at anytime.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
