The first of June I went to Utah to take the wedding pictures for Ben and Amy, and also the baby pictures for Baby P. It was an insanely long drive by myself and I will never do it again alone if I can help it. But once I was there I had a great time.
I met up with my friend Wendy and had lunch with her and her sweet boy Roman. Wendy and I have been friends for years now and this is the first time we have met in real life. We began being friends on babycenter’s LDS board on a thread for Mormon gals dealing with infertility. There is a group of us who now have a private blog and they have been a great support for me. We had a fun lunch at Bajio.
My cousin Shanna let me stay with her. I love staying with Shanna, she is one of my best friends. Whenever I stay at her house her husband Matty is so sweet to sleep on the couch so that her and I can sleep in her huge king sized bed together and stay up all night and visit. We never get much sleep, but we have a blast visiting and laughing all night.
We ate out, Shanna made cinnamon rolls which I devoured, and we watched movies. We also went shopping so I could get a few things from real stores while I was around them. Can I tell you how much I miss real stores like Nordstroms? Sigh.
I got to watch her boy Punk compete in his first ever triathlon, he did awesome of course.
I loved on her sweet baby girl, they call her Tweeters.
Matty works part-time at Sundance, which is my favorite place on earth. I don’t ski, but I go there almost every summer with Shanna and we ride the lift. We usually eat at The Foundry restaurant there too, which is SO good. If you ever want to be a sinner one Sunday, you really should skip church and go to brunch there, it is so yummy. Please don’t stone me for sluffing church for good food, it’s a weakness.
Here is me and my weird twisted face riding the lift.
The view from the lift.
I haven’t ever seen my boyfriend Robert Redford there, but one day I am hoping to. I love him!
We got off at the top and went for a short walk/hike. Notice my sturdy hiking shoes I wore for the occasion.
Shanna and her cute babies.
Can I even tell you how much I miss living in Utah? I would love to move back to SLC one day.
