a quick trip and a cute butt

Auntie Courtney styled her hair like a little diva. And did she ever live up to the title!! ;)
My favorite waffles and frites hole in the wall restaurant. I daydream about this food. If you live in SLC you MUST try it!
Gateway shopping! I didn't even buy one thing... Promise!
Why am I the only one holding my head weird? Oh dear.

With Eric working so dang much lately I decided I needed to take a quick trip and get out of here.
I am so blessed to have a husband who sends me out the door with a kiss while he works his cute butt (trust me... it's CUTE!) off to make a good life for our tiny family.
I realize how blessed I am to have experienced living in EM up north. I made the most amazing friends that I know will be in my life forever. And in just a short year and a half. I honestly love them!
I was blessed to live just outside of the city for that year and a half. I miss it everyday. Small towns just aren't for me... but I'm getting used to it. Slowly :)
One of the best parts of my quick trip was hearing how much all of my friends kids missed me! It was the sweetest thing. Since we don't have babies of our own, I get my share of lovin' from them. Blessed!
If you aren't getting the gist of this post.... even though this change has been extremely hard for me, I DO realize how blessed I am. I am just thankful I have a husband (with a cute butt) to lean on and love me while I get adjusted. And thank goodness for those quick trips! Even though I cried when I got there and when I left (haha) I was SO happy to go back and see everyone!

P.S. I realize the title doesn't have much to do with this post. I just really think Eric has a cute butt.... tmi??

You are gunna be such a good momma! cute pictures. I have to say I'm the opposite of you. My husband is from a large city and I'm a country girl.. I'll take my small town over his big city any day. I love coming home to my big yard and empty fields. Once you have kids though, your perspective will probably change on this. Enjoy the rest of your week girl!

Michelle said...

I tell Andy I like his butt all the time, so it's definitely not just you. Your pictures are so cute, I'm glad you got to de-stress and spend some time with your ladies.

Alyx said...

You are so freakin' adorable. And husbands with cute butts just seem to make everything better. Am I right or am I right? Haha, guess I'm right!
Seriously, though - so glad you got to take a little trip to see your friends and family! I know you've sorta been having a rough time, and it sounds like that was just what you needed!

Alyx said...

Also... i am disregarding that extremely delicious-looking food because of how jealous i am. that is all.

That Girl said...

I'm not a city girl myself, but I totally get how hard it is to move away!

Erin said...

Where's the cute butt pictures?!?!? Super dissapointed ;) Kidding kidding

My Journey With Candida said...

LOL.... cute post. I am happy for you that Eric has a cute butt!

Moving away can be so lonely. When I was young and first married, we moved from a small bohunk town to NYC..... for me that was VERY SCARY...

Now I am older and live in a small town and love every minute of it.

Emily said...

I'm glad you had a good time up in SLC!

Amanda said...

Cute butt loving is always a good way to pull a reader into a post. I'm glad you had some much needed girl time to give you a little pick me up. Sometimes, even 5 minutes, can make a huge difference :) Hope you're having a wonderful hump day so far!

Shea D. said...

Oh how I wish my friends lived closer! I had a friend from Denver visit Disney World recently but I couldn't get away from work to see her while they were here.... sad!

Isn't it a major blessing having a husband who loves his job and works hard to support his family?! I definitely miss living near a big city too girl. Looks like you had a wonderful visit with friends though. (:
