Happy Birthday Nu SKin!

This year Derek and I became Blue Diamonds with the company so pre-convention the company took us on an all expense paid trip to Sin City! They put us up in a suite at the Bellagio complete with a view of the fountains and continued to wine and dine us for three days.
At the airport we must have seemed really excited about going on this trip because the person checking us in thought we were going on our honeymoon!

We spent a day at Pirates Cove where Derek-as always- WOWED the crowds with his diving skills. Next we where off to see the Beatles Circ du Solei show LOVE, which I LOVE!

We also went on a helicopter ride over Las Vegas and into the Grand Canyon. It was a really beautiful and scenic trip however helicopters do make me nervous. By the time we were headed back I was starting to feel at ease with the situation when we looked over at our helicopter pilot and saw that he was texting! Sheesh!

Some of the scenic shots we took along the 2 hour ride, which is a long time to be in a helicopter by the way.

It was a full three days packed with limo rides, fine dinning, and shopping. AHHH the life of a Blue Diamond. Thanks babe for all your hard work at making this all happen! Love You!

Next we were off the L.A to celebrate Nu Skin's 25th Birthday at the Nokia Theatre

To start off the event we attended the Nourish the Children Gala. This is always a high light at convention. It entails a great dinner, company, and a live auction. All proceeds are for the foundation and this years top bid was to ring the closing bell at the New York Stalk Exchange which went for $71,000!

All events for convention where held in the Nokia Theatre (this is where American Idol is held) and here is the view from our box seats where we were able to see all the celebrities who attended the event such as...

Arnold Swarzenegger

Gladis Knight

Natasha Bedingfield

along with our famous family members who appeared on stage

The last night of the event the block was closed off for a live band performance and as always you make many new friends! Peace out!
