The Weekend, a Green Chili Burro, and a Laker Game

Life just doesn't seem to slow down! The semester is almost over, and it makes me excited for things we have planned in the near future.

If you're thinking about going to the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point, don't waste your money. Just hop on over to our house, and I'll even give out complimentary snacks and water. ;)

Friday night Tanner and I got all dressed up for a date night-I even threw on some wedges! I got a gift card from work to Macaroni Grill, and then we had movie tickets from Christmas, so the plan was to go see Captain America.

If you've been to Macaroni Grill, you know that you can draw on the tables with their crayons. Tanner and I set a timer and said we had to draw a house in 30 seconds, and see which one was best. If you know me, you know I can't draw to save my life, and in this post, I show another embarrassing example.

As you can see, Tanner obviously won. 

We had about 2 1/2 hours left to spare, so we ran over to Provo Beach Resort, and got some delicious BlueBell ice cream at Ike's! We both got the most delicious Blackberry Crumble that had pie chunks in it. MMM. I've asked a couple more times this week to go back, and it's only Tuesday.

We sat out on the bench and watched these two cute families with their little kids running around, and it was so relaxing, and FUN!

Before we got to the movie, we stopped for some um...Prune Juice. If you ever have to drink that nastiness, which I would never wish upon anyone, make sure you refrigerate it, I promise it helps.

We got to the theater early, but to our despair, only the front two rows were open! I forget that you can reserve your seats now...We don't go to movies often!

Saturday morning we attended the Bijou market on Center Street with Shelley, and it's always so fun to browse! They also had the Art City Donuts food truck, so we couldn't resist going.

Later, Tanner did a ton of yard work, got our sprinklers up and running, and studied. I was lucky enough to head down to City Creek with Shell, and help her find a graduation outfit, because she's cool and graduating this semester! Woot woot!

J Crew just got matching skirts and dresses, and we actually both bought those so that we can match in Carlsbad. Thanks to my loving husband who I adore so so much, and who is the best ever, and totally rocks, for letting me buy an Easter skirt! ;)

Later, in Anthro, they were giving out lemonade, and I spilled all on the front of me. That shirt is hand-wash only, so it dried just like that, and I got some awesome looks the rest of the day. Tanner says I have a hole in my lip, because this has been happening to me way too often.

After a relaxing evening, and a wonderful church the next morning, we had Brim and Scott over for dinner. My sister made some Green Chili Burros the week before, and my whole family raved about them. The recipe is deceiving-but I should have known better-please, don't put your meat on HIGH for the first little bit. I never like how it turns out, and unfortunately, when we had guests, I messed up. I like it slow-cookin on low. So, I'm sure they will be a lot better next time. They were still good, but the meat kinda stuck in our teeth a little. eek!

A while back I realized there was a Laker/Jazz game, and I found some really cheap tickets. Since it was finals week, I couldn't keep it a surprise, and I had to let Tanner in on the secret. We went with our buds Madeline and Andrew (they like the Jazz-yuck!) and we enjoyed our reallllly cheap seats, hence the wall behind us in the next picture. We saw Phil Dunfy from Modern Family, and danced the night away. It was such a fun Family Night, and we even had a lesson while eating at Costa Vida!
