Snow Day!

Wednesday was CRAZY! We got like, seriously, a foot of snow! Luckily it was my day off, so I didn't have to attempt to drive 40 minutes in the snow and could just chill at home with T. He is so funny in the snow. He LOVES it so much and leaps like a bunny when it gets really deep lol. So, I played with him in the snow for a bit.


Look how far it came up when he laid down! He is like a little Border Collie loaf. <3


J shoveled the driveway and I swear he was out there forever haha. It took him so long! He is lucky his commute is so short. I felt so bad for anyone who had to drive in it! One my friend's husbands was going snowboarding and I think she said it took him like 3 hours to get there haha. It was crazy! 


The rest of the day was great! I took it completely off and spent it organizing/editing the home videos my mom gave me and watching True Blood. True Blood is honestly so good haha. Lots you'll want to fast forward but I love the storyline of vampires being a marginalized group lol. 


We have been opening the window in our bedroom so Tucker can look out the window and it is very cute. Although if we are in there he usually doesn't stay long haha.


All in all, it was a good day! I watched The Bachelor and really feel like ma girl Cassie is going to win. This whole season has been so weird. I feel almost like they are editing it so sexual? Like are they actually doing things on the dates and the producers are just editing it to look like they are making out the whole time? Or what? The whole virgin thing is so overdone and I feel like they are focusing so much on sexuality that the whole season is just over the top and cringy hahaha. But, of course, I still really like it! It's sad how much more exciting I feel like life is when The Bachelor franchise shows are on ahaha. Oh well, gotta find excitement somehow!

XOXO

Wicked!

Tuesday was good! My sister got my mom (and me) tickets to Wicked for Christmas. I usually see clients on Tuesdays, but I switched my schedule around which always makes me so happy about my career choices that I can switch my schedule whenever I want haha. 

Wicked was good! The security was SO TIGHT. Wait, actually let me back up. So on my way home from work it started snowing and I got sick (idk if it was from anxiety about driving in the snow or something I ate). So I stopped at home to change into more comfortable clothes and J was so nice to drive me to the play because I am too scared to drive in the snow haha. I ended up being late and missing dinner which was sad because they went to Pretty Bird which is SO GOOD. Then, when I got to the play, they wouldn't let me bring my camera in! So I had to have J come back and give him my camera. So annoying lol. 

But, the play itself was good! 


Afterward, we went to Last Course for dessert. I love that little road that it's on. It's so cute! 

Anyway, we tried a bunch of desserts. I actually didn't try the s'mores cake, just because it didn't look that good. But I did like the banana tacos and my absolute fave was the chocolate nachos with strawberry salsa! I mostly just like that their desserts are fun and unique. I have also gotten the rosemary and honey ice cream and it was really good! 

We are going to Wicked again next weekend with J's family and I want to go again and try more desserts haha. 


My sister was nice and drove me home BUT on the way home (at like 11:00pm, mind you) we passed this guy who was just standing on the sidewalk? Like it was so creepy and it reminded me of that time me and my friend saw a ghost! Anyway, this was the night before the snow storm and I guess it took my mom and sister until after midnight to get home! I tell you, I am NOT going to be sad to trade this snow out for Seattle rain. Everyone is like, "You want to move to Seattle? You know it is so rainy there right?!" But honestly at this point, I just DO NOT want to live somewhere with extreme weather haha. Driving in the snow is such a scary thing for me and my freaking commute is like 40 minutes so it's just so bad. So, I will take the annoyance of rain happily!

XOXO

P.S. Here's a happy list for today: Trying desserts from Last Course / My sister was talking about how she remembers me being scared of the monkeys in Wizard of Oz. The play started and the first thing that happened were the monkey coming out and I leaned over to my sister, grabbed her hand, and mouthed "I'm scared" and we laughed so hard haha / J giving me a ride to the play and my sister giving me a ride home

D8 Nite

Monday was good! We both worked as normal and then went to Pizza Factory for dinner! I use Localfluence for my food Instagram and it's so fun! Basically you get free food in exchange for a review. Pizza Factory pizza actually isn't my favorite, but I am OBSESSED with their breadsticks!! THEY'RE SO GOOD. 

Anyway, if you are in Utah and like to do influencing things, look up Localfluence! 


We have started switching on and off what nights we watch TV and what nights we read. Monday we read and J got this picture of Tucker that makes me lol. Look at his face!!! Hahahahaha. 


I have been meaning to post a book review post, I just keep prioritizing other things! I will try to get around to that tomorrow, because I have read so many good books I want to share about! 

XOXO
