a little adventure... finally!

Saturday was such a great day!!  I've been itching to get out and go on a little adventure and my friend suggested Park City!  Living in Utah all my life I've never spent time in the actual town so I was way excited about the idea!  I thought I'd have to do some serious convincing to Eric but he said yes before I could finish asking him if he'd like to go there.  Apparently I wasn't the only one ready to get out :)  I checked the weather on Friday (stupid) and it said Park City would be partly sunny/cloudy.  Perfect!  So Saturday we got ready and headed out of town without checking the weather again (stupid!)  Needless to say, it snowed the whole time.  Aside from Eric wearing tennis shoes (his feet got soaked haha) instead of boots we had such a great time!
We did a little shopping!!  I am so lucky I married a man who actually likes shopping with me! 
We ate lunch at Good Thymes (thank you Trevor and Alycia for the Christmas gift certificate...this is where we used it:) it was so yummy!  Eric ordered a Reuben sandwich... how have we never tried this before?!?!  Yum!  Anyway we totally recommend this restaurant, just don't order the pulled pork... weirrrrd flavoring! :)
<< We LOVE sweet potato fries so this was awesome! (Yes, the fries were terrified of Eric's intensity ha) And yes, our dessert was just as yummy as it looks!! :)


I told you it snowed all day :)
Main Street, Park City
Main Street was a lot of fun!  Such cute, quaint buildings!!  If you notcied the sign: F'n Hot in the background of our picture... that was our favorite!  Haha maybe I shouldn't admit that but it's a store full of hot sauce and seasonings that are, well you can guess how hot they are :)
Ha ha ha ha!
Anywayyyy.... I bet you can't tell how much we loved Park City ;)  We're hoping to go back within a month to do some snowboarding!!  And we'd love to go spend a weekend there for a real get away!  And we're planning to go back in the summer for more fun!   
And now for my favorite part of the night:
Watching Eric shake it to Just Dance for the wii!!  :)  SUCH  a fun game!!  I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

P.S.  Words with Friends is my new favorite time waster!  I highly recommend this app :)  And if you want to play with me tell me your username! :)
P.P.S.  I love my Eric!  And he loves me enough to shave for our date (I love me a smooth face ha) but he forgot to trim that hair under his lip.  What do you call that?  Anyway.. after my nagging he trimmed that thing to almost nothing as soon as we got home :)

You guys are the cutest. My man loves shopping too! Isn't it such a blessing? Seriously, I actually pray and thank God for that. haha

And I'm SOOO glad you like sweet potato fries too! I feel like we are kindred spirits now. I seriously order baskets just for myself and I don't share. haha

Thank you for your sweet comment! Mia and Grace sound great together, so I wouldn't be mad if you copied! :) She actually has a VERY special meaning behind her name, Mia...I had triplet nephews, Mateo, Ian and Anthony, that passed away (all 3 of them) so I knew that if I ever had a girl, I would take the first letter from each of their names, and name my daughter Mia. Sure enough, about a year after they passed away I found out I was pregant with a girl! :)

Thank you again for stopping by. You and your hubby are the cutest! :)
