I hope everyone had a great weekend! We sure did with all sorts of festive activities. As you may have already read, we had a fun Christmas party for Cody’s work Friday evening where we got to dress up and eat way too much delicious food.
Saturday was a snowy day that was spent sleeping in, getting some stuff done around the house, squeezing in a workout, watching Lord of the Rings while wrapping some presents, and playing in the snow with the pups. Ryan was cracking us up… He would catch the snowballs like they were a real ball and then come to realize that they don’t exactly stay together. Goofy dog. And then there was Molly off finding little patches of grass to graze on that made her totally content. She’s an odd one but oh so cute.
Later on I made a comforting dinner of Creamy Tomato Chicken Penne. Another winner from Jessica. We headed out the door shortly after dinner to head to downtown Salt Lake. We live a good 45 minutes from downtown, so we decided to use our public transportation system to make it a little more of an adventure.
Our first stop? Trader Joe’s!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I was so excited! I didn’t go too crazy, but I got a few of my favorites including their sunflower seed butter, tomato soup, mini peanut butter cups, dried green beans, trail mix, coffee, and dark chocolate peanut butter caramel salted truffles per recommendation of Chelsey. And yes, it was still a mad house at 8 PM on a Saturday night. I really hope they plan on opening more locations out here!
Next we headed to Temple Square where they always have a beautiful array of lights and decorations during the Christmas season. It was pretty chilly so I was excited when we found a little cart selling homemade hot chocolate.
Not before long, my legs were feeling numb and the snow started falling so we decided to call it a night. I just love exploring downtown Salt Lake City! It’s a smaller city compared to others, but it sure is a beautiful one.
Sunday was filled with church, some baking, a short nap, and dinner with friends. It sure made for a fun (but quick!) holiday weekend!
Aaaand we’re off to start a new week! Let’s make it a great one!
- Did you do anything “festive” this past weekend?
