One + Four = Life | January 2016

Standard

Sooooo…… I forgot about these One + Four = Life posts that I got into last year. These were pretty fun to do, though I may not get to them weekly. I’m hoping for bi-monthly because 1) other priorities and 2) my life just isn’t that exciting, sadly.

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life…

 

A few weekends ago, we went to Slamdance in Park City, which coincided with Sundance. If you don’t know it, look it up. Our first time there, didn’t see any movie stars other than the ones in Director’s Cut (which was crowdfunded by people like us). Crazy navigating the town and parking! We had some crappy pizza, thanks Red Bango… did some window shopping (too artsy for me) and watched the movie. It was a different experience but fun!

 

 

The beginning of the month, I had a fun girls’ night out to celebrate one of my best friend’s birthday. We went to Twiggs Bistro and Martini Bar. Had a pineapple martini (not a pic of my actual drink because I forgot to take one, but this is pretty close) and yummy food. I love going out with my two best friends! We don’t do it often enough but it always puts a smile on my face and makes me realize how lucky I am to have them in my life. Man, have we been through some crap….. LOL

wing nuts

This last weekend, we nerd-ed out! First, we kicked off the night with delicious wings from Wing Nuts Restaurant. We shared the bone-in wings with buffalo chips (not pictured), followed by equally amazing Sub Zero ice cream (not pictured). I love their brownie batter w/chocolate chips and cashews. Mmmmm….. Afterwards, we went to a local theater for a comedy-improv of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

 

To finish out the weekend, and nerd out session, we went to see the actual Star Wars: The Force Awakens (again) in the theater. I really liked it the first time, in 3-D, but liked it even more this time. Perhaps because I caught some more humor and little things that I missed the first go-around. Seriously, this movie kicks ass!

One + Four = Life | June 29

Standard

I’m a day late again but what can I say? I was busy relaxing yesterday! 🙂 Mexico was a blast, got back Friday night. Saturday we went to lunch and saw The Illusionists, which was a great show and a lot of fun. Fantastic meal! Sunday was our yard / house work day, followed by relaxation and watching tv.

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life…

mexicoOur first night in Mexico. We said “screw it” and kicked off our vacation with some much needed drinks. While playing foosball. It was a fun night 🙂

lambs grillHad lunch at this little joint called Lamb’s Grill, in Salt Lake City. They have THE best bacon wrapped dates on this planet. This time we had the dates (duh!), blueberry pancakes and the triple cheese grilled cheese. All of it was yummy!

showAfter Lamb’s Grill, we saw The Illusionists. The group has a handful of magicians all with different styles and acts. Had a lot of fun!

drinksOne of our friends came over and we made pina colada’s and strawberry daiquiri’s that same night. The drinks turned out okay, it was fun making them. We got tipsy and watched The Three Amigos. Super fun!

One + Life = Four | June 18

Standard

I’ve been a little behind on my life posts, these last few weeks have been pretty busy. So, here’s a quick recap of everything since my last post on June 7th. (Big breath!) Started adjusting back to “real” life after the comp, it’s still weird not working out as much but I’m loving the fact that I love being at the gym again and don’t see it as a chore. We had a BBQ with our friends last Wednesday, tried some elk burgers and saw their new (well, 6 month old) little boy. It was a fun few hours! Last weekend, we did some things around the house, checked out some tile for our kitchen backsplash and did some relaxing. This week has been spent getting ready for Mexico, we leave tomorrow!!! So excited!!

Hope you enjoy the glimpse into my life….

pool

Okay, this is from a few Sundays ago but it’s a cute pic that I wanted to share. After the gym, we decided to spend a little time at the local pool a few blocks from our house. It was fun walking around the little lagoon area and walking under the water. It was nice to enjoy the warm weather and spend time just kicking back with the hubs.

texas roadhouseWent to lunch with both of our parents and two of our very good friends. I love this place! And the company was great. It was a combo lunch, for my father-in-law’s birthday and an early Father’s Day for my dad since we’ll be gone on the actual day. It’s always great spending time with our wacky family and friends!

VideoAnd last night, I was fortunate to get recruited for some workout videos by an old friend who is super awesome. It was spur of the moment and I had tons of fun!Here’s a pic of one portion of the video. It will be used for marketing purposes for his personal training business. Really glad I was able to do this and, hey, it never hurts to get my face out in the world! 😀

flyingThis will be us tomorrow, on our way to Mexico! We’ll be staying at two different resorts in Playa Del Carmen – I can’t wait for some fun in the sun!!! After the stress of the last few months, between work and the competition, this is a much needed vacation and I’m super excited!
