{Weekend Wrap Up}

Family Me Weekend Wrap Up

Another fun and jam packed weekend in the books!  I can't believe how fast they seem to fly by!  I'm thinking 3-day weekends are much needed!

On Friday night, I was able to check off another item from my 2012 Summer Bucket List.  I attended an outdoor concert at Red Butte Garden with some super fun gal pals of mine.  Even though we got rained on for a bit, we had a blast.  I will post more about the concert later in the week!

Saturday, Carl and I ran a few errands to grab supplies for another item to be checked off the bucket list. (I'm having a Girl's Night Out on the patio on Friday) I got some fun things! 

After the errands, we picked up Madison and headed out to an early dinner at Desert Edge Brewery.  I've been eating here for 25+ years, back when it was just called The Pub.  We sat outside on the patio (love patio dining!) and started our meal with the usual chardonnay and hefewiezen (sprite for Madison)

My favorite item on the menu is the Friday Pasta of the Day, which is the Italian Pasta Salad (proscuitto, mozzarella, peas, tomato, olives and lettuce w/pasta).  It wasn't Friday (obviously) so, I decided to branch out and try something new.  I went for the Crab Cake Salad and it did not disappoint!  SO delish.  The crab cakes were nice and tender, and the chipotle aioli was perfect!

Madi had the Nachos, which are always a good choice!  Very cheesy and the portion is a very nice size!

Carl chose the Guajillo Chile Barbecue Pulled Pork Sandwich with Gouda Cheese.  He substituted the Gouda with American Cheese though.  He said it was awesome!

After dinner we checked out Craft Lake City,  It was super hot outside, but we had a great time checking out a lot of local crafters!

On Sunday, we spent some time at the pool and then went out to my parents house to celebrate my cute Dad's birthday.  Sadly, I didn't take any pics at all on Sunday.  Lame, I know. 

Right now, Carl and I are relaxing at home watching the closing ceremonies.  My fave part so far? 

The Spice Girls, of course!  LOVE THEM!

Back to work in the morning!  Ugh!

Question for you:  What was the highlight of your weekend?

For me, it was the concert at Red Butte!  So much fun!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Monday!

    So funny, I just had a conversation with my friend about how 3 day weekends should be mandatory. What’s with all this work shit, anyway?!
    OMG I loooove The Pub! Go there all the time, it’s so good! Marshall always gets the enchiladas and I rarely order the same thing. I love the goat cheese quesadilla though, I always add chicken. Your salad looks phenomenal, I better try it.
    Can’t wait to hear more about the concert! Happy birthday to your dad! That’s OK that you didn’t take pics, you are just living 🙂
