What is a gal to do when you when her man goes off and does something like this? Do I just ignore it? Do I confront him? (Or do I just take a picture and giggle?)
It’s the end of WEEK 23 and we’re Back from our trip to UTAH! I weighed in upon arriving home today (my birthday)... and I found that I LOST 2 POUNDS!! And my man lost 2 POUNDS!!
[He even had cotton candy... the little sneak! How does he get away with that? Actually, I don’t mind, I can’t stand the stuff... and he didn’t enjoy it anyway.]
But we Both truly enjoyed an amazing trip. We attended the beautiful wedding and reception of our niece... (the reception is where the cotton candy incident happened), and we payed an impromptu visit to my sister-in-law, totally surprising her at a park! Too fun. She, my brother and her family were so responsive to our weight loss and listened to us ramble on about it. They even asked me if I would be their coach if they wanted to do Medifast! I have been considering eventually becoming a coach after I lose ALL my weight but they asked me if I’d be their coach sooner. How cool is that?
It was so fun visiting AND
We both got to ride go carts.
This is the FIRST time I’ve ridden a go-cart since I was a teen... because I’ve been TOO BIG to even fit in one! Yay... I can fit now! The ride was wickedly sweet, to say the least!! Thanks to my nephew who let us ride for free.
We stayed with my friend, Emily, in her gorgeous home up on the hill overlooking both Salt Lake Valley and Utah Valley, and enjoyed her trampoline with the breathtaking views of the mountains. I LOVE the mountains and really miss them. We don't have these here in Oregon!
We spent a whole day exploring Salt Lake City’s “Temple Square” and reminisced our wedding day 21 years ago (awww.. sigh...) and ended our last night with a splurge to the Macaroni Grill for our birthday dinners!
I made some lettuce taco wraps while we were there and also chicken wraps another night.
We headed home earlier (and gleefully as we shown in the pic above) and surprised our kiddos when they got home from church! (jump out and scare kind of surprise... we’re such mean parents!! tee hee) Overall, it was the best and most memorable “alone” trip we’ve had together, even in a car with no AC and 103 degree weather. I am feeling truly blessed!! :)
