This turned out to be a pretty eventful weekend. I had lunch with my mom on Friday and we did a little shopping. Afterward, Andy and I decided to drive down to Salt Lake to check out a bike sale. Several weeks ago Andy bought himself a road bike and we’ve been on the lookout for one for me ever since so we could ride together. We found a bike for me at Highland Cycle.
We took the bikes out for a ride on Saturday morning. The strong winds kind of put a damper on our ride but we still had a ton of fun and I can’t wait to take the bikes out again this coming week. I think I’m really going to enjoy this new hobby of ours, despite the fact that I still have a lot to learn about road biking. I think it’s going to be a great way for us to get some exercise this summer.
After we bought the bike Friday evening we decided to grab dinner at Desert Edge. We were so hungry that I didn’t snap a picture of our dinner until this happened:
It didn’t take me long to inhale that plate of pasta. After dinner we decided to brave the crowds and check out the new City Creek Center on our way home.
I’ll admit, I was kind of wondering what the big deal was. In my mind, it was just another shopping center, but ten feet in and I was surprised to see how beautiful it was.
We didn’t do any shopping because it was just too crowded, but we walked around and looked at all the water features. It’s really quite pretty. The ‘creek’ running down the center and the evening sky above added to the ambiance of the place.
I’ll definitely be back to do some real shopping.
On Friday I also got my Project Life supplies in the mail. I’m really excited about this project and just a little sad that I didn’t decide to start it earlier. I chose the turquoise theme even though the core kit is sold out right now because I liked it the best. They won’t be getting more in until May but I figure I could still plan my pages and set my photos aside and then just assemble it all when I get the kit.
Lately journaling has been a total bore for me so I’m excited for this new and more creative way to document our life.
Something else exciting happened this weekend: Heather and Joe were in town! Andy and I went down to Riverton to see them at her mom’s house this afternoon. We got to see Russell for a minute while his grandma was feeding him. While Russell was napping we snuck away for a quick brunch (for the ladies) and lunch (for the guys) at Tin Roof Grill in Sandy.
None of us had ever been there before but we were thoroughly impressed. The food was amazing!
It was so good to catch up with Heather and Joe. We miss them!

After lunch we headed home so Andy could work on our bathroom remodel with his brother, Bret. Bret’s girlfriend, Cami and I, played with Ash while they worked on the wiring. Afterward, we all went to dinner at Slackwater Pizza (our new favorite place in Ogden.) No pizza this time. I had the club sandwich with mulligatawny soup and Andy had a caesar salad. Excellent as always.
Lately I’ve even managed to clear out one of my flower beds. (One down, four to go. Plus a garden to clear and plant!)
I could see little bits of green trying to work their way through the mess so I thought I’d better get in there and do some work.
Pretty soon my white tulips will be blooming!Can’t wait until it all fills in.
It’s been a fun weekend and next weekend promises to be even more fun! I will get to see some of my favorite people! I’m feeling a bit tired out and under the weather tonight though. I hope I’m not coming down with something. I think I may have to take myself to bed- and hopefully Henry the Bed Hog won’t still all my space again tonight.
How was your weekend?
