Today was "back to reality" day for me.
I have spent the last week and a half enjoying one of THE best Spring Break's ever!!
A few weeks back my wonderful husband, all on his own, decided to take me on a road trip to see some very dear friends of mine that live in Salt Lake City, Utah.
I was shocked when he brought it up! We had been throwing some ideas back and forth of what we could do on our break (he had already requested this week off as one of his vacation weeks also).
One night we were driving and out of the blue he says, "I want to take you to Salt Lake."
I said..."WHAT?! Really!!!"
I was SO excited! I have two really great friends there in SLC!!
One, is my good friend Tab who I grew up, she was one of my bridesmaid and teaches in a Christian school there in UT. The other is my sweet friend Courtney. I have known Courtney for a long time but it wasn't until last fall that Court and I became super close. One day we started chatting back and forth and we just never stopped. She is now one of my best friends!! I was so excited to see her since it would be the first time we would be together since our friendship has grown!!
Have I mentioned that I have the best husband on the planet?!?! :)
So, we took off on Sunday evening and drove a few hours then stopped and finished the trip on Monday.
We arrived in beautiful Salt Lake on Monday afternoon and stayed until Thursday morning.
My friend Tab, had been in Michigan seeing her (now fiance) David and was supposed to return on Monday p.m. but due to plane issues she didn't come in till Tuesday afternoon.
Here are some pictures of us on our "road trip". We had a lot of fun on the "road"!!
Monday night we had a great time being introduced to the SLC area!!
We were also introduced to Courtney's "special someone", Matt! We spent the evening getting to know each other and "bonding" over Mexican food, a drive in the mountains, and bowling!!
It was so fun to "double date"!
Our guys got along very well and are actually a lot a like which just made the night so much better!!
Tuesday, we spent the day shopping and doing girl things like a trip to the nail salon!! Julian just came along for the ride. It's times like these that I'm so happy I married a guy that grew up in a house full of girls!! :) He is very understanding (most of the time) when it comes to shopping etc...
Tab also returned on this day!! It was very nice to see her again!!!
Tuesday night, Courtney's parents had us over for dinner. It was a nice relaxing evening and we had a great time eating, laughing and playing games!!
Wednesday was such a beautiful day!!!! It was sunny with clear skies. Tab had to teach all day so Courtney took us through more of Salt Lake. We did a "drive by" of the Mormon Temple and the Capitol building.
Isn't this just a gorgeous place!?! Look at those mountains!!!
We took a walk in the park and just relaxed enjoying the time together.
Wednesday night we were able to see several old friends that all attend Courtney and Tab's church.
It was great to catch up and see people we haven't seen in a while!!
Not to be repetitive, BUT it was truly a GREAT trip! We had a such a wonderful time.
Thanks to my two awesome friends who "put up with us" and showed us their amazing city!
We would love to come back again soon!!!! Thanks friends for making it a memorable Spring Break!!
Miss you girls already! :)
