Weekend Update: 2.17.2013

Friday after work I made the long drive down to Provo. Traffic Friday afternoon is a nightmare and it took me 1.5 hours to get from Downtown SLC to BYU’s campus. I met Megan and her other friend Megan for dinner at a new little spot called Awful Waffle. Can we talk about what a terrible name that is for a restaurant?! Why would you ever want the word awful associated with your food?! Anyways…It’s a big Belgian/Italian type place and the food was not awful (thankfully).  It’s so funny to go back down to Provo and see how much it has changed. This place is located in a brand new apartment complex, restaurant place thing. When I was at BYU, it was an elementary school which was torn down and remained am empty lot for years. 

After dinner we went to see BYU ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty. I LOVE Sleeping Beauty. It is one of my all-time favorite ballets.  BYU’s production was fine. The best part was the little girl that spent the entire show dancing in the aisle like a ballerina. So cute!

Saturday was so sunny and wonderful!! I miss seeing the sun! It felt like spring outside (even though it was only like 40 degrees). Saturday morning I played a tennis match. I cannot wait until it’s warm enough to play outside again!!!

Saturday afternoon Megan hosted a fab Valentine’s Day tea party!! The food was delish and the company was so lovely. There was a small group of us and it was nice to be able to chat and spend the afternoon together.

After the tea party, I booked it back to SLC to meet up with Emmalynn and some other girls in the ward to see Safe Haven. I haven’t been too impressed with the last few Nicholas Sparks movies so I wasn’t expecting much, but I LOVED it. Definitely one of the best chick flick movies that I have seen in the past 5 years. If you haven’t seen it, make it a point to!!

It was a pretty normal Sunday. Lounged around in the morning. Church in the afternoon. My parents had their “empty nester” dinner and it was my mom’s turn to host so me and sister got to attend. The group started out as 5 couples with all their children gone but it the past few years, 4 of the 5 couples had their children move back in with them at some point. Ha. It was fun to go to their dinner-my parents friends are great.

The best part of Sunday (a Sunday miracle if you will) was that I found my Garmin watch!!!!!!!!! I have been looking for this watch for ages and was almost convinced that it was lost forever. I decided to scour my room one last time and found it lodged under my nightstand. HOORAYYYY!!!! Now I can really get serious about training for that half marathon I’m running in a month…

I am trying to think of all the "empty nesters". Are my parents the only ones whose kids haven't moved back? Sounds like you had a great weekend!
