This weekend was seriously a lot of fun. Let me tell you something about myself. I love plans. Well, most plans. Plans that involve friends, plans that involve eating, plans that involve celebrating. Trav & plans...not so much. He likes to stay in. He likes to hang out at home. Isn't it true what they say about opposites attract? This weekend was all about my kind of plans. It doesn't always happen this way. I try not to boggle all our weekends down with my kind of plans, so Trav can have his kind of plans. When I do boggle us down, he's very good to come along for the ride.
On Thursday, I got a text from my friend Sydney. You know her? I thought so. She was stopping through Utah and wanted to have a date! So I promised her I'd plan something to be remembered.
In her honor, I have prepared an awkward/awesome run down of our date night.
Making a comment between us girls and having the pizza dude SURE we were talking to him. When realizing he just embarrassed himself, he lets out a total fake laugh and pretends he was still a apart of the conversation...
E man making friends with a sweet little toddler at the cupcake shop and having her dad say to me, "So your son's takin' a liking to my daughter??" in a protective dad-I've got a shotgun-kind of voice. What?? They're not even 2 yet?
This website for Christmas Utah and the fact that this dude takes it upon himself to classify his light display as the ultimate Utah Christmas experience. Not to mention the public service announcements involved with the light display.
Ordering a Chicken Bacon Pizza and hoping to experience something semi-gourmet, and then getting home and realizing you smelled like a bacon farm (i made that up.) the entire night. (Considered burning my clothing.)
Meeting Tys and realizing he's exactly. like. Syd. describes. him.*
Having Syd take pictures of E only to watch him rapidly run towards her and practically tackle her in a hug.
Visiting the Sweet Tooth Fairy for the first time and tasting a cake bite (or two.)
A crazy awesome light display set to music that totally gets you in the Christmas mood.
Chats about blogging, fashion, kids, life, and family with 2 pretty awesome friends.
Syd's (faux) fur vest.
*Have you ever read Syd's blog and wondered if her husband is really that perfect? Sometimes I read it and think really? He calls her sugar, and takes all her pictures, and kisses her on the tummy to wake her up? Believe it.
Also this weekend, E attended his very first official birthday party. -Cue the Star Wars opening song-
After he successfully completed Jedi training, E received...
A chocolate cupcake!
This time of year for us has been so fun, because E is grasping many of the Christmas concepts, and trying some of my favorite holiday traditions for the first time.
Like decorating gingerbread houses (aka) graham cracker candy houses.
He truly made this house all by himself. So proud.
