So...we went to Dubai over Christmas break! My mom, dad, and sister live there for my dad's work and let me tell you it was FABULOUS. I have never wanted to live somewhere so badly in my life! It has all the comforts of the U.S. while not having to BE in the U.S.! Also, most people speak English and all the signs are in English. Talk about convenient! The following are just a few of my favorite pictures from the trip. To see the full album, go HERE.
I love how these pictures did not upload even remotely in the order that I clicked on them. Delightful. So, here are the pics in a completely random order! Wahoo!
My sisters and I looking
rediculous sexy at a belly dancing show...
