weekend review

Friday was the best day I've had since moving here! I painted my nails, deep conditioned my hair, and had my first EVER massage! Heaven, I tell ya. I don't know why I waited so long to get one of those... Anyway, I made the day all about me :) But sometimes we need to do that! And Friday night we made some new friends! That's right people, we went on a date with 2 other couples (woo hoo)! I enjoyed myself so much that I didn't even think to pull out the camera.

We finally got a gym membership and we got 1 free session with a personal trainer. Saturday we took advantage of that session and basically, I almost died. And my body hates me now. I'm questioning if it's worth it to get back into shape ha ha! We spent the rest of Saturday exploring this little town and picking out our dream homes. Let me tell you what... we dream big. And this little town has some pretty exciting shops ;)

haha- we'd make a good match even if we were dinosaurs!
welcome to my new life
 blurry pictures are the best... not!

It is safe to say that I will be doing all of my shopping out of town. But it was fun to spend the day with Eric and explore the town. I can't wait until it warms up enough for us to spend our days in the mountains... that is one good thing about this town. The gorgeous mountains and landscaping!

P.S. We didn't wear one spec of green on Saturday... oops!

Shawna Faye said...

Oh aren't massages the best? I think I need more of them in my life. Looks like a fun little town. :)

Lisa Campbell said...

I don't know if I told you I went to Evan's Hairstyling College in Cedar. So I lived there for a year. As a single person in a college town, I loved it, but I swore I wouldn't live there if I were married. Haha, sorry. My favorite places there were The Pastry Pub and Maurice's. I once had a booth doing hair and nails at the annual Renaissance fair and that was fun too. I think it will grow on you. :)

Crissy B. said...

Personal trainers scare me :( And I may be the only person in NY that wears cowboy boots, but I'm okay with that.

Massages are the best things ever!! I get one twice a month just because my neck gets crazy tense.

So you just moved to a new place? I can relate trying to find fun things to do. We live in a small town now and it gets ridiculously boring at times lol.
