Air Show

I went to my first air show a few weeks ago. It was really cool and loud. The Thunderbirds were definitely the best part. I had to volunteer (which is an oxymoron) at a food booth so Corey came with me and helped me assemble burgers for 4 hours. He's so sweet! And sexy in a hair net ;)
The military 'encourages' us to volunteer so that on our yearly review we can brag about all the community service we altruistically provided. It really bothers me but I just have 4 1/2 more years of playing the game :)

The Final Decision

Corey and I have been searching travel books and magazines trying to decide where to go on our honeymoon. Somewhere that is not currently in the midst of a political revolution and somewhere that's on our list of places we have to go to. Most of those places are currently housing terrorists or the people are rioting about something so we were having a hard time but have finally decided to go to Spain!

On the fourth or last Wednesday of every August, Bunol, Spain holds the annual Tomatina Tomato Fight and what better way to celebrate the sacred union of two souls than by hurling tomatos at each other? Nothing says love like tackling your new bride in a river of tomato juice.

We'll also be checking out Madrid, Barcelon, Valencia and all the countryside in between. If you've ever been to the tomato fight, let me know if it's as cool as I'm imagining or if you think you could even conjure up a more romantic idea for a honeymoon.

Corey went to Vegas for his first time! My best friends all met me there. Lindsay and Danny and girls drove up from Phoenix, Dre and Derek from Salt Lake and LA and Marleah and Chad already live there so I got to see my favorite people AND bask in the 95 degree sunshine! We had so much fun. We stayed at Excalibur 'cause it was the best deal I could find and it wasn't too bad. The flight there was pretty horrible and so Corey and I have vowed that even though the prices are lower, we'll never fly Southwest again. It's always a pain if you're traveling with someone else 'cause you might not get to sit with them.
We walked around a lot, laid out by the pool, went to a show and had some buffets. We flew all the way to Vegas and didn't gamble. I don't even really like it but I love Vegas.
