Spring Break | Sister Wives


Since last year, I have joked with my brother that we needed to stalk the Sister Wives the next time we were in Vegas.

Sister Wives is a reality TV series that documents the life of a polygamist family. They originally lived in Utah,   in a polygamist area. 

I must clarify a couple things.

1. I am a Mormon

and 2. Mormons do NOT practice polygamy.

The religion that this family practices broke off from our faith and essentially started their own.

Also, this sect of polygamists are not associated in any way, shape or form with the Warren Jeffs sect. 

The Sister Wives wear normal clothes, have normal jobs, go to normal schools and they get to choose if they want to live this lifestyle or not.

I am not advocating for or against them in this post.

I just wanted to get those things cleared up. :)

I foolishly thought that I would be able to do a Google search and somehow find where they lived. Keyword: foolishly. 

The Brown family {that is their name} moved to Vegas and rented out houses originally. 

Finding their rented houses was easy.

For those of you who watch the show, this house will look familiar. :)


This was Meri's house.

However, the rented houses weren't all together and so they sought to build separate houses, on the same street to maintain the unity of their family.

These houses were nearly impossible to find. 

Nearly.

With this single photo as our guide {via the internet} we began our search.


I would be lying if I said we didn't have other tricks up our sleeves. Because we did. :)

And I would be lying if I said it was easy. It wasn't.

Buuuut ... we accomplished it. Of course we did, because we Thornleys are awesome.

Their homes were in a gated community. Naturally.



Robyn's house is in the background. You can see Kody's crasy car parked in the driveway.

And guess what else we saw?


The film crew.  :)


Robyn's house on the left, then Meri's {straight on}, Janelle's is to the right of that {which you cannot see} and Christine's is the one in the right corner.

Although it is difficult to see ... I saw Robyn. She is in the big upstairs window, calling out to the camera man. If you look closely, you can see her resting her head on her her hands, her hands on the windowsill. 


She spoke to him for a minute.

And I took some more photos.

He then got on his phone.

And I got nervous ... that they might be bothered with people outside as our intent was never to make anyone uncomfortable.

So we promptly left.

But, I leave you with a final piece of proof ... their names on the call box directory. :)


Robyn Sullivan Brown


Janelle Brown


Christine Brown


Kody Brown


Meri Brown

Success.was.ours.

Truth be told. I would have preferred success be ours on the basketball court. Buuut, if not, we will find the next best thing. ;)

Question is: is there anyone you want us to stalk?

I love it! Mostly because it makes me feel better to know that there is someone else out there besides myself who would conceive of doing such a thing. And then actually do it. Just awesome.

You're a good stalker!
