When Austin suggested that we go to Vegas for New Years since we were already in St George, this was obviously my reaction.
For real though, we had the best time!
We started at a super classy gas station, found the perfect casino for me, and just wandered down the strip.
After wandering around for a while we found a spot in front of Planet Hollywood to hang out until midnight. Let me be very honest here, I am pretty sure I saw every weird person on the earth. It was the funniest thing ever to see how crazy some people are. If there was any way to describe all of the outfits I saw I would but I don't think anyone would even believe me. They were that outrageous. But we obviously made some new friends.
The countdown to midnight was pure adrenaline.There was so much energy it was out of control. There were fireworks set off from 5 of the hotels on the strip and it was AMAZING!
Now, let me tell you that there were approximately one million people on the streets. Most of the time it was body to body everywhere we went but as we were leaving it was worse than any other time. There was a bottleneck in the road and we were literally at a dead stop. When the crowd started moving you just had to hope that it was moving in the direction you wanted to be going because there was no way to get out of it. We were packed in so tight that I think I could have picked up my feet and the people around me would have just carried me. It was pure chaos.
(I hope this video works because it is priceless)
Also we walked past a sparkly McDonald's, so you know I wasn't mad.
We had the best time and I am so glad we went. It was a long drive and a miracle that we stayed awake all the way home but so so worth it. So much fun and I would do it again in a heart beat.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful New Years Eve and that 2014 is so so good to you!
