weekend review

I'm tellin' you guys... Saturdays are out to get me! Every time I actually have plans, something always comes up to ruin those plans. I was looking forward to some girl time at the lake but I woke up to rain. Not that that bothered me! Utah is in desperate need of rain and I was enjoying it! But by 10 or 11am the rain and clouds had cleared and it was sunny with blue skies the rest of the day! By then, plans had been cancelled and life had moved on. What a let down! So I spent the day stuffing my face, being lazy, and taking naps on the couch. Ooooh the life of a pregnant woman, ha ha!
Saturday evening my friend, Laura (my 1 friend in this town- ha), called me and invited me to a festival/jamboree this town was putting on. It was SO nice to get out of the house! There was a huge car show and tons of junk food. But the best part was the people watching. Don't ask me why I decided to be a bad blogger and not take one picture.... because there was good material at this festival, ha ha. When Eric got off work I met up with him to go walk around the car show (remember- he loves his hot rods!) and again, didn't take one picture! Shame on me. But it turned out to be a good night :)
The rest of our weekend was spent running errands, celebrating my dad's 50th birthday, and a date with new friends! Say whaaaaaaa'? You are totally wondering if you read that right.... and you did! We made new/more friends! YAY!

We tried out a new pizza place and loved it! Apparently a new restaurant is a big deal in this town...
Dessert at Sub Zero. They use liquid nitrogen to freeze the ice cream. Fun to watch and even better to eat :)
He's kind of an ice cream snob and didn't love his... but we really are so happy to have our favorite ice cream spot in town!
Ashely and Austin
In case you didn't get enough of my face with our ice cream... yay! We have new friends!

I totally tested our friendship by pulling out the camera and taking ridiculous pictures for the blog. They couldn't figure out why I'd want a picture of the pizza, and they were dying over my excitement for a group picture (which didn't happen. we all know how Eric would rather not be in pictures...) If they still want to be friends with us then it was meant to be, ha ha! 
On a serious note... things are looking up in this town! I am so happy that we are slowly making friends, and it's a relief to have something to look forward to :)

That sounds like a good weekend! I'm glad you're making new friends in your town! Collin and I have lived here for years and we went through a stage where we didn't really have any friends (because all our old ones either moved away or we just drifted apart) and so it was hard for a while but we've finally started making new ones!

Also, we have a new frozen yogurt place in town and since it's opened we've been twice and are going back tonight! And I just discovered it two weeks ago! haha. I definitely think it's a new favorite. =)

P.S. I LOVE the shirt you're wearing. Where did you get it??
