Weekend update: 1.26.2014

It was a rather lovely weekend! Unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures…

Friday night Karen, Marissa, and I went to the opera! Karen and I try to get season tickets every year (you know, in the 2 years we’ve been here) and Rissa has been wanting to see La Traviata so she joined in the fun! The opera was lovely and the music was beautiful! It was a fun night!

Saturday was a good day. I had bought a KSL deal (I’m addicted to those stupid deal sites!) for the Crystal Hot Springs and in true Erin fashion, it was about to expire and I still hadn’t used it. So Marissa, Jane, Brie and I made the trip up to the booming metropolis of Honeyville, Utah to go to the hot springs. It was a fun adventure! We spent a little while at the hot springs and then made a stop at Brigham City’s famous drive-in, Maddox, for a late lunch on our way home.

Saturday night I went with Jeremy to a birthday party for one of his co-workers. We stayed there for a bit, did a little grocery shopping after, and then went home and had a movie night.

Sunday was a typical Sunday. Church was good. I wish that we had switched to 9am church though. I hate having church so late in the afternoon.

For dinner I made a fabulous lasagna! It was so yummy and now we have enough leftovers to last pretty much the whole week. I also did a little bit of baking. I had made a chocolate chip bundt cake to take to a Junior League event but when I was taking it out of the pan, it completely fell apart. It was too sad looking to take somewhere so it became our wedding cake for Sean and Catherine’s wedding. Then to replace the cake (I still had to have something to take to Jr League!) I made oatmeal butterscotch bars. Thankfully those fared better than the cake!

Up Ahead
This week should be a good one-Ladies Dinner Club, Junior League, and movie night with sister!!

Weekend update: Birthday edition!

I had a really fantastic birthday weekend!

Friday I had no things to do and the house to myself! It was kind of wonderful! I put on my pajamas early, ordered my favorite pizza, and spent the evening catching up on Revenge. Later sister and Sam came home so I hung out with them and played a little bit of Just Dance. It was a lovely way to spend a Friday night.

Saturday was my actual birthday and it was a great day!! I went to brunch with a handful of my favorite friends! It was a lovely way to spend the morning-eating delish food with people that I love. I completely forgot to take pictures at brunch so all I have is a couple of photos of some of us in the parking lot. Cool.

Saturday afternoon was nice and relaxed. I hung out with sister and took a nap. I love a good weekend nap!

Saturday night Jeremy took me out to Copper Onion. He had never been and it did not disappoint! It’s such a fun non-Utah-seeming restaurant and their food is awesome! Afterwards we saw American Hustle, which I have been wanting to see for a while. It was a strange movie but I ended up really liking it! Then it was present time! Jeremy spoiled me-he got me a couple of inside jokey things and then he got me an awesome pair of cozy sweats since I’m always stealing his. Ha ha. All in all it was a really great birthday!!

My parents were out of town on my actual birthday so we did my birthday dinner with them on Sunday! My request was tacos (yum!), 7 layer dip, and a red velvet cake. My mamma made a great dinner and sister made a fantastic cake from scratch!! After dinner we played trivial pursuit (best white elephant gift ever!). I was winning the entire game except I couldn’t seem to land on the right space. My mamma swooped in a won the whole thing!! It was a fun night and fun to spend time with the fam.

Up Ahead
The week ahead is looking pretty standard: Jr League, the bachelor, and more Jr League!
