Over the weekend, Andrew and I headed to Park City, UT with the Slaughters for some much needed rest and relaxation. We had the BEST time and cannot wait to go back. Here are some thoughts as you read today’s post:
1: There are a lot of selfies.
2: And a lot of pictures of snow.
3: There might even be a picture of a moose.
4: I think I’m wearing makeup in like three of the pictures.
5: There is a fantastic book mentioned somewhere in the middle of the post.
6: Some of the things I wore are available, so I made sure to link to them if they were (because I know some of you want to know).
7: I’m ready to move to Utah.
8: Like today.
Here we are at the Salt Lake City airport…this picture was taken somewhere around 1:30 AM. Yes, AM. We took a very late flight so that the kids would be ready for bed before we left…so, we didn’t end up at our hotel until after 2:00. But it was worth it 🙂 .
The next morning, I woke up and looked out the window of our hotel and it was GORGEOUS! The night before had been such a blur that I didn’t even notice the beautiful view. We stayed at the Hotel Park City, and we all loved it! It was close to Main Street and close to skiing, they had an incredible spa and because it wasn’t ski in/ski out, it wasn’t super crowded.
The guys headed out to ski/snow board immediately, so Erika and I ordered room service and hung out in my room until it was time to visit the spa. This omelet had goat cheese in it…and we all know that I will do anything for goat cheese.
While we were sitting there, we looked out the window and spotted moose just roaming around. (I mean…I was told they were moose…but they could have been something else…the natives of Utah all said moose.)
So, that’s something you don’t see every day out the window in North Texas 🙂 .
Here I am leaving the spa. I was in such bliss before that I didn’t take a pic…but here I am leaving. We had made spa appointments at our hotel in advance. On this day, I had some sort of full body scrub and massage with a wrap. The boys skied and we spa-ed : ).
After the spa, we had lunch (the view was so nice!) and then headed back to our rooms to read and rest (because we were going off of only about 5 hours of sleep).
Oh Utah, you are so pretty!
That night, we got dressed and headed to dinner on Main Street. We stopped first for appetizers at No Name Saloon and it was so festive! (PS: my super fun furry coat can be found HERE.)
See how fun it is??? Our appetizers were so good too!
After that, we walked over to Prime and had dinner. We made all of our dinner reservations in advance too. Prime is a steak place on Main and it did not disappoint!
We love a good steak supper : ). (And my ruffled sleeveless sweater can be found HERE .)
The next morning, Erika and I hit up Main Street for shopping and lunch. It was cooooold and so much fun!
Friends, I miss my bed so much. Not my new bed…my old bed. I think this trip confirmed in our hearts the truth…we hate our Tempur-Pedic and will be returning it. I know, I know…we’ve already discussed this topic…and as of today, I’m going to have to side with the group that did not enjoy their Tempur-Pedics and returned them. We knew we didn’t love it before our trip, but after the first night on the hotel mattress, it totally confirmed in our hearts how much we dislike our bed at home. It’s just way too hard…and a mattress is a huge investment, so we want to love it. It’s going back. Boo. I really wanted to love it.
We stopped for lunch at a bistro on Main Street. Such a lovely day 🙂 . (And psssssst: that’s that sweater from Loft I love so much!)
Off to shop some more! I didn’t buy anything for myself, but I found something for my mom and the kiddos.
We got back to the hotel and sat in the lobby by the fire and read. Oh my word…I read almost three books on this trip and this one was SO GOOD! I can’t wait until my next book review!
Erika and I got so hungry around 4:00 and our dinner reservations weren’t until 8:30…so, we split an order of steak sliders. Yum!
Here we are heading to dinner!
We stopped and had a little appetizer at a little place off of Main and then had dinner at Grappa.
The next morning, we were back at the spa for round two! I had a hot stone massage and a facial.
This time after the spa, we met the boys at the base of the mountain for lunch.
Tab on skis, Andrew there the snow board.
They had the best time. I think Andrew Shull would live on a snow board if I would let him.
Love these people so much!!!
And then we wrapped up our day with appetizers here and then dinner at Grub Steakhouse.
Oh my goodness, such a great time. Andrew and I feel so blessed to have friends like the Slaughters that we can travel with. We absolutely loved Park City, Utah and will most definitely be back. Another great weekend in the books! (And Erika is also blogging about our trip today. You can read it HERE.) See you tomorrow!
