Salt Lake Trip 2014

I've been SLACKIN on my blog lately, been so busy with life. I promise I'll start being better about updating it regularly, I am motivated!

So last week we had Friendsgiving with our friends Bethany and Shawn Adame. It was a lot of fun! We made all the traditional trimmings; turkey, green bean casserole, stuffing, cheesy potatoes, rolls, pumpkin pie…yum! We just spent the whole day relaxing and cooking. Then they were nice enough to watch Reese for us so that Jake and I could go see Hunger Games 3. I really liked the movie, probably my favorite out of all of them so far.

The next day we drove down to Salt Lake with the Adame's to spend the day and night there. We went shopping at City Creek mall, ate dinner at Benihana (DELISH), then went to Temple Square to see the lights and the gorgeous temple. I love Salt Lake during Christmas, because it's not only decorated with the usual christmas lights, but it emphasizes on the true reason for the season. We definitely had a blast!

The next morning after we checked out of our hotel we went shopping at the Gateway mall downtown Salt Lake since Jake and I had never been to that mall before. Then we ate lunch at California Pizza Kitchen and headed home. It was a super fun trip. However, the night ended horribly when I dropped my phone on the concrete outside our apartment bringing in our luggage from the car and shattered the screen…..I'm still currently without a phone but should be getting it back from Apple in the next couple days.
