Bon Voyage

I'm leaving on a jet plane {I wish, flying AA with the normal peeps}.
Don't know when I'll be back again {that part's a lie too, be back next week}.
But you know how the song goes...right?

Anyhow, I'm ecstatic for a vacation,
to relax, 
vacate my life for a week, 
forget what day of the week it is,
eat delicious food, 
see new places,
new smells, 
swim in the warm ocean,
snap pics of everything worthy,
and just have a good time.

Until next week, Ciao!

Rope Swingin' Fun

Love this video for a couple reasons...
but mostly because I'm a proud Utahn and
this is in southern Utah 
which is gorgeous.
If you haven't been 
put it on your bucket list
you won't regret it.

These guys are crazy 
and the thought of doing this makes
me want to pee my pants, 
but makes for a great video 
and if I was a thrill seeker
you better believe I'd do it.

Hooray Hooray!

The weekend has finally arrived...and it's extra great because it's a 3 day weekend!

This week dragged like no other.
Perhaps it's because I knew it was a long weekend ahead.

Usually my weekends are packed
with lists, errands, friends, dinners, get-together's etc.
I am tickled pink to have zero on my calender
other than just
+ relaxing
+ finishing my reads
+ giving myself a much needed pedi
+ keeping the laptop and other electronics off
+ sleep
+ bubble bath
+ making some yummy salmon
It's already sounding like a glorious stay-cation...can't wait.

Hope everyone has a wonderful President's Day weekend!

Old soul.

About a month ago I got sick with the flu
while at my parents place.
Since I didn't want to infect my roomie
I decided to contain the sickness & spend the night with the rest of 
my sick family members.

I had nothing but the clothes I was wearing.
So I asked my mom if she had 
some jammies I could borrow.
She came back to me with a nightgown, 
you know the one with cute ruffles, pearl buttons, 
pleats on the shoulders.
Yep that kind of nightgown.

I gave her a glance of judgement
because in my book only the grannies wear those.
She told me her grandmother had given 
it to her and it was the most comfortable thing ever.

Too tired and sick to argue I put it on and went to bed.
She was right, it was like butter I tell you.
Soft, comfie and warm.

So I took it home with me to wash and bring it back to her.
I washed it alright, but then I found myself wearing it every night.
So last week I had gotten back from the gym, showered and got in
the cozy grammie nightgown and decided I was going to 
catch up on some shows.

My roomie was in her room on the phone with our mutual friend.
She came out to find me on the couch with the beloved nightgown.
I won't lie, I was hoping she'd overlook it and not notice it.
But she gave one glance and busted up laughing 
and then proceeded to tell our mutual friend she was on the phone with.

At this point we were all laughing and she 
was wondering what happened to her otherwise chic roomie.
I told her she'd have to wear it to understand 
exactly how comfortable it was.

She took a picture of me in the nightgown, 
but I decided not to post since I was half asleep.
But let's just say I've decided I may have 
to continue to 'borrow' my mom's
nightgown for a bit.

I've decided I'm an old soul on the inside
and that I'm fully embracing's too cozy not too.

ps. I found out another one of my friend's is a big fan of the nightgowns...
I knew there was a reason we were kindred spirits!

In the spirit of Love...

The snow finally arrived.

It's been an odd winter here in Utah.
We haven't had much of winter, with high temps and zero snow in the valley.
I'm not completely complaining, other than the fact
that I don't want the snowfall to come late and then have a late spring.

Alas the first real snowfall arrived a couple weeks ago!
So some friends and I headed to the mountains
for some snowshoeing.

The weather was perfect, the trail was full of 
fresh snow and the surroundings were
beautiful as usual.

Afterwards we went to one of my all time favorite
restaurants, Porcupine Grill
for the best nachos...they're a mountain of goodness as you can see.

Love these guys.

My friend showed me this a couple weeks ago and I loved it.

Since it's the month of love I thought it appropriate to share.

How cool/clever are they??
