Utah is life | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Utah is life


We are back from Utah!!! It was so sad leaving. I wanted to stay forever!! It was the best because my 2 best friends were there (Shaney + Adelle) and Jason says I'm cute when I'm around my friends because I "act super outgoing like you're in high school" haha. He says it's a good thing, don't worry. ps this post will be tons of writing so if you hate to read or can't read than I am v v sorry in advance. #documenting

Sooo Friday we got to Utah at like 7:30pm, it was kind of sad because we totally forgot about the time change and that we would lose an hour and miss Jason's mission reunion (he went on a church mission to Spain for 2 years and there was a little reunion thing going on on Friday in Salt Lake) We ended up going out to eat with one of his mission companions that night so it worked out!

We stayed up talking and talking (me, Jason, Shaney, & later her husband, Christian) till like 2:30am. I value my sleep probably wayyyy to much so I kept begging to go to bed haha I don't know what it is but I hate going to bed super late because no matter what my body will make me wake up at the same time every morning and I just hate being tired! Plus, we had tickets to watch the LDS conference live the next morning in SLC and you have to be there at like 7:30/8am to get in line to get inside. Obviously we didn't even go after all because we stayed up so dang late. Oops!

On Saturday we all went to lunch and hung out and then went and met up with Adelle at the City Creek Mall in SLC. That mall is amazingggg!! So many awesome stores! Jason and Christian are such good husbands haha they let us window shop at all the stores and take our sweet time while they waited for us to hurry the freak up.



I picked up a cute shirt from Albion Fit that I'll show you guys later! But it was fun to just walk around and look at clothes and people watch and just so so great being with my favorite people ever. It was one of those days that I never wanted to end because I was just so happy!

We went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse and our server hated our guts haha we have no clue why! He was just soooooo grumpy and acted like he would rather be poking his eyes out with a needle than serving our table. (That sounds dramatic but really he was so angry at life) Our food came and some of the steaks were cooked too much which wasn't a huge deal and we weren't going to say anything. A manager walked up and asked if everything came out ok and then Adelle spoke up and said her's was a little too cooked. The lady was so dang friendly and bubbly and the coolest lady ever and she goes "oh they're cooked too much? I'm so sorry! It's the servers fault so I'll just fire him. It's ok because he's my husband!" We couldn't believe that our server was her HUSBAND! I literally asked "Wait is he really your husband?" and he was. So yeah, crazyyy. He literally only got a decent tip because his wife was so cool and nice and the tip was basically just going into her bank account anyways and yeah. She deserved it.

On Sunday we drove up to the canyon and took pictures and ate food and enjoyed each other's company. Just a relaxing day of hanging out and doing nothing! My cousin invited us over for dinner & it was really good to see some family before we left! We got to see my grandparents, too, for a second and then headed back to Shaney's so Jason could take a short nap before we drove home.

We left Utah at like 10:30pm and drove for 9 straight hours. I was so tired in the car but couldn't fall asleep for basically forever. I have no clue how Jason stayed up all night driving home. Seriously if it were me driving I would not be here to tell the tale today because I would probably fall asleep behind the wheel and drive us into a ditch. Seriously I get so tired when I drive at night. Jason kept trying to find an open gas station to get an energy drink but everything was closed! It was so weird!! It seemed like the longest drive of my entire lifeeeee but we pulled in at 6:30am and we both just went to bed and slept in till noon! Utah was sooo much fun and everyone needs to convince Shaney and Christian to move back to Arizona :) I need all the help convincing I can get!!

  1. That sounds too short!!!! I think you needed a few extra days! And when are you going to address this awesome mermaid hair?!?! Also, I would pay big money for those shoes still. Stupid Target should repeat styles don't you think.

  11. Husbands who can stay up all night to drive are awesome! Mine can do that and I'm the worst passenger because I tell him I'm going to stay awake to make sure he doesn't fall asleep, and an hour later I'm out! I just totally trust my husband not to wreck haha!

  24. loved the trip too! i can be that way about sleep--not wanting to be tired the next day and all. i always thought the tip went to the server, so there goes that idea!

    1. haha the tip does go to the server but like I said, the manager and the server were married so she basically gets the tip, too :)

  25. Hooray for such a fun trip seeing friends! That's the best! :)

    I'm with you on liking to go to bed at a decent hour. Like you, I wake up early no matter what. So I like to get good sleep before the sun rises! But hanging out with friends is totally worth it. :)

    So weird that your server was so awful, but then just so happened to be married to the manager! Weird! It's good she was so nice to you guys, though!

    1. K seriously, I LOVE staying up and all but not super late, I love my sleep! :) It was worth it in the end and luckily my body let me sleep it, go body! haha Yes it was like so weird how different the server and manager were and they were married!! I would have never guessed that they were married!!
