The Nitty Gritty

I was on track before the holiday's took me by storm.... In my mind the Holiday's last from November through Valentine's... You know the Nick's Bday, Christmas, New Years, Birthday, Vday and all our anniversaries in between. It was just Nuts. I am kicked back into gear. The BodyBugg on my arm, and the new iphone I downloaded the App called Lose It. The app is a food journal/calories counter/exercise log. I am really loving it! I have lost 2 lbs. so far. I will keep everyone posted... I think it's all because of Biggest Looser I really love the show!!! It is a great motivator. Nick has been going to the gym with me too this week! He is SUPER SORE. It's no fun starting back over. I have stayed consistent on my workouts just not my eating...
So here is for a NEW START!

The Shopping

Norstrom Rack was great.... We found the Seven's that are Nick's Favorite Cut. We got him to pair of those for 150 off... Can't beat it... We found a great Robert Graham shirt for 40. The another while wrinkle free Nordstrom brand like the ones he wears every Sunday. Then we went old school and got him some Lucky's like he always use to wear in college he said were his fav, just to wear around!
I had made a list of things I wanted before I left....
A brown Northface Jacket
Nike Work out Stuff
Sunglasses ( more to come on these)

I got a pair of sevens a little big, and with tons of stretch for Maternity... yes you heard me right... Hopefully it won't be too far away... You really can't pass up the Rack prices... You must plan ahead. I got another pair of Rock and Republics just like the ones I wear all the time, but with a button flap pocket. I love em. For those of you that know me, you know I love turtlenecks, always have.. they keep me all covered no worries. Last year I had gotten several from The Rack that held up great! When we went this time they had the same ones just a little longer in length... which is good for a bump too. They were TEN bucks!!! I got a hot pink, purple, and black.

Then the next day we went to the outlet mall. We went straight to Nike, and they had all my fav's I got
Running pants
Pink Hoodie top
Thin Baby blue top
Brown cold gear with thumb slots
Yoga pants
Running shorts
People ask why you would spend a lot on gym clothes. I just think it is part of it for me if I feel good comfy and cute .. I get motivated and I have a great workout!!! All that stuff washes great and lasts forever!!!!

Then to the sunglasses Nick has been telling me forever to get nice sunglasses that fit my face nice, and they will last forever. I was a buy 3 ten dollar pair every season and always loose and break them. I have never used a sunglass case. I am just really not that great at utilizing any case!!! Just ask Nick. I have looked and looked and looked. I just really didn't think there was a pair of shades that I felt like fit and looked good enough to justify so much money. We had gotten a gift card as a wedding present to a mall in Utah. We had that, and needed to use it while we were there! So Nick said go to a mall where you can use it , and look for shades. I went straight to a Sunglass Hut knowing that if I did change my mind I could take them bck in Lubbock, and get all the money back. Wendy, my MIL was with me, and she is like having a cheerleader just for you to hang out with all day. Every pair that I tried on she would say, "Those look good!" Then occasionally we would laugh at those monster big glasses that like GOGGLES! They are really getting big now!!! It's halarious! I finally tried on a pair that I really liked... I thought just get them you can always get a refund, and you need to use the giftcard. Nick was waiting outside for us. I bought them... Never in my life would I have thought I would have spent that much money on sunglasses. But I really think that I will enjoy them. It hardly feels like you have any on!

I think that was all we got... It was SUPER FUN

Okay really I have spent hours trying ot get these Park City pics up trying all different way. It has been taking up t0 five minutes to load four pics onto my page. I was so frustrated. I just couldn't take it anymore. I was looking into getting a Apple me account, and blogging through that. It will interface with my whole photo library and just simplify everything. Last resort I tried on my computer at the Salon, and poof what do you know it look 4 seconds to load four pictures. I did these from my photobucket account. Saved them and did them as ushual soo who knows.... but I promise I will get caught up. I thought it was Bloggers site, but that has been proven wrong.... grrr
Here are more of the trip!

We stayed at the Chateaux which was a really nice place it was great. The views and convenience we both amazing. We were right across that walkway from one of the main lodges. They have the coolest little German restaurant bar my Mom and I had found last year. Sat there for hours and just had a great time. We went back there the first day after skiing, and I had the BEST HERBAL TEA. It was splendid

My birthday was wonderful. Thank you for all of the warm birthday wishes!!! It made it very special! My husband was a dream. He pretty much always is though!!!
I have a lot to catch up on...

First off Park City/ Deer Valley Ski Resort trip.

We got there on a Thursday and got to go strait to the Draper Temple Open House. That was my first time to be on the inside of a Temple. It was amazing. I was so glad that we were able to see that before Nick and I did our endowments and our sealing. I am really looking forward to it. The temple was so beautiful! I was really glad that we got to go. I had seen the groundbreaking on it right when Nick and I started dating. Every time I went back they would have a little more and a little more completed. He had some family that lived right up by it, so we would always drive by really slow and see how it was looking.
Nick's Dad, Lupe, and Karen were able to go with us. Then afterward we went to the long awaited Cafe Rio! YUMMY THANKS PAPA BRENT!

Thank you for that and especially thank you for putting up with me. It takes a very special person for that. He he. Your qualities are endless and I cherish each day that we get to spend together. You truly make me want to be a better person. I LOVE YOU! Happy Birthday and thank you for marrying down!

Off to a white place!!!!

We are leaving in a couple of hours to fly to SLC. I'm kinda excited ... okay really excited I haven't been there since the beginning of August, and that was only like a 2 day trip. I miss it! I use to spend one week out of the month there for a over a year. I kinda felt like it was my home!

My favorite things about UTAH

Nick of course #1

Family. Nick's parents, his sister, and one brother are there! I have always felt welcome, loved, and a part of it! I can't wait to see everyone!

Temples. I love getting to see all the new Temple and the old ones. We are actually touring the New Draper Temple today with my parents when we get there.... I am soo excited. It will be my first temple experience.
Veiws.... 360 degrees of Beauty

SHOPPING. I am not a shop-a-holic really but... I have been deprived living here my whole life. I am so use to online shopping. It's a dream to get to try stuff on! I am a huge fan of The Rack. I always find great stuff there.
Snow of course. We have had it once this year. We normally have more, but it has actually been a really warm winter.

Skiing. We are staying at a Ski In Ski out condo at the Chateaux which is next door to Stein. Nick's Dad works at both of these places!

Food... Great Chinese, Great Sushi, Great EVERYTHING. Park City has my favorite restaurants. One is called Chamayo's, oh man it's unreal!!!! I will have more to say about this one for sure!!!

Park City outlets. Did I mention I have been saving all my spending money for the last 5 months!!!! I am excited! Self discipline finally pays off!!!! That Nike outlet is where I got so many of my workout things... It's great. I love being stylish and dressy, but I am not sure there is much I love that great workout clothes. Nike is my brand. I tell Nick he can buy we any bottoms in a medium and any top in a small, and I promise him I will love it. You can't go wrong.

I know Nick will give me a hard time and say that these aren't in order, But they really are!!!!
So with that.....

OFF TO THE SNOW!!!! and for sure the biggest shopping spree of my life!

Super BOWL Sunday!

We had a great testimony meeting first thing at church on Monday!!! I really look forward to those! We had stayed up really late the night before watching a UFC fight. I thought I was going to fall asleep, but I didn't thank goodness. Then we came home and had a little nap time.
Holly my friend was having a Super Bowl Party. Our plan was to go over there until Half time, and then go to the party that my brother was at. We had lots of chips, dips, burgers,hot dogs, sausage, and cupcakes. Holly really did a lot! I kinda cheated my normal efforts... I bought it all nothing was homemade.
We of course were going for the under dogs, the Cardinals and it was an okay game! Really neither of the teams played like they wanted to win I thought! But the Steelers took it again.
Nick was in Tampa early this week, and went to the stadium. He really took that picture ...
Chloie, Jessica's little girl was the hit of the party. She is getting so big, and much more friendly!!!!
