Quick Trip Home

I had the best time this week at home. I was only able to be home for a few days but it was SO nice to be there. I got there Wednesday evening after my plane was delayed a few hours because of a bit of a blizzard (but I can hardly call it an actual blizzard, the snow was all gone the next day).

Thursday, I had lunch with my parents at Maggiano's, one of my favorite restaurants (which we don't have in Utah). After lunch I was able to spend a few hours catching up with Kara, who just returned home from her mission in Toronto. Then, as if lunch wasn't good enough, we went to dinner at Benihana with my Grandma, followed by ice cream at Coldstone. (Seriously, wow! The food alone on this trip was well worth it, not to mention the people I was able to see!) One other really fun part about dinner was that the Nuggets were having a team dinner at Benihana while we were there. It was crazy to see all of these huge guys walk in to the restaurant. It was awesome. I'm glad I was able to spend some time with my grandma on my quick trip as well as see her new house, which was fun.

Friday, my mom and I did a bit of baby shopping (I'm finally feeling a bit more confident about the arrival of this little girl, now that I'm getting more and more baby gear). We got some great stuff, including the stroller I have had my eyes on for a while. Saturday morning I had breakfast with Rachel and Kara. It was SO fun to spend time with both of these girls! I haven't seen Rachel since last summer, and I can't even remember the last time I was with just Kara and Rachel. It was so fun to catch up. After breakfast we headed to my brother's track meet, and then right afterward my dad and I hit the road back to Utah, so I would be able to make it in time for my brother-in-law, Austan's mission farewell this morning!

I hadn't been home since last simmer, and I'm SO glad I was able to take this quick trip!


  1. Yes to Benihana, double yes to cold stone, and triple yes to baby shopping! Glad your trip home was so great :)

  2. That sounds like such a great little getaway! Isn't it so nice to just eat as much as you want and not feel guilty about it because you're pregnant? Wait til nursing comes - I wanted to eat more while nursing than when I was pregnant!
