so as most of you know i had the honor of traveling to utah for the weekend. it was soooo stinkin' cold!but it was well worth freezing my buns off to spend time with my girlfriends. i arrived on thursday night and stayed at rikki's house. her roomate michelle is so kind to let any of us stay there when we are visiting. carrie and rikki picked me up from the airport and it was so awesome catching up. needless to say, as with all 4 nights i was there, i didnt get much sleep! well friday was miss millers birthday!! wahoo 24! we met up with kersey for lunch. i havent seen kerz since the wedding and she is the most beautiful pregnant woman i have ever seen. she's truly got that glow! well she surprised carrie by taking us to tucano's brazilian grill. it was awesome!!!! i even loved the beef brisket. so after that we hung out with rik for a bit at work and then went to a big birthday bash at chilli's. we just ate dessert because of our lunch :) then we ditched everybody and went back to carries and watched "dirty rotten scoundrels". so fun. saturday morning we ran errands for the baby shower which started at 11. carrie miller was the winner of all the games, go figure! it was a beautiful shower with a great turn-out & tons of food. i loved seeing terry (kerseys mom) and brooke (kerseys sister). brookes little ones are so dang cute! especially ella. she is a month younger then ellie and made me quite homesick for my babies. afterwards we ate jdawgs and it was even better then i remember!!! so sweet. so juicy. so right. then we went shopping!!! i have missed shopping with my friends because its never a boring stop in a store. we always find things to make us laugh. anyways. so then we were all hungry again and decided to go to applebee's. this brings back many a memory! so then on sunday i went to church with carrie miller who attends a singles ward and was hit on by an interesting apex boy. it was so awkward!!! then carrie and i went and visited ali and desi in spanish fork. i can not believe how much their kids have grown up! so much can happen in a year! then rikki made us dinner, it was the best frozen pizza i have ever had. afterwards i had to say goodbye to kersey & preston and carrie miller, which was very difficult. monday morning at 5, rikki took me to the airport and i was on my way as fast as it all started! it was hard not having enough time to visit all of our friends from provo. my favorite part of the trip was being able to reminisce with my best of friends and laugh till my cheeks felt numb! what could be better then spending hours with your friends, laughing uncontrollably, and eating till you want to throw-up? i had the time of my life this weekend and it was all possible because of my christopher. i missed him so very much, but truly appreciated his willingness to let me have a break from my usual routine. he is the best husband and friend in the world!
