i've said it before and i'll say it again...lunch dates with my husband are the best!

because it's so rare that we get to go to lunch during the week together, going out to lunch with gordon is one of my most favorite things.  this lunch date we tried one of the few places we have yet to try on my favorite street downtown, historic 25th street, called two bit street cafe.

want homemade french fries?  they've got them.  in the mood for a delicious philly steak sandwich?  they've got that too.  oh, you want something full of veggies?  try the penny panini.  it's excellent.

we'll be going there again for sure.  i want to try their homemade sweet potato fries.  and their made from scratch desserts.

our easter weekend in photos

attending the temple with gordon's grandma to celebrate his grandparent's wedding anniversary.  eating one of the most deliciously moist lemon cakes i've ever had (happy birthday tim!).  enjoying an easter dinner with gordon's family.  having an egg dying contest.  no, we didn't win, but we had a blast competing against siblings.

what a fun weekend!  hope yours was too.

the little things

seeing my dad driving by my work on his bike…waving and I waved back.

the crossing guard I pass by every morning on my way to work that waves at everyone…no matter the weather.

saying sorry and getting a kiss from my husband.

sending a text message to the wrong person about something silly…but it ended well and now everything is out in the open.

being invited to celebrate gordon’s grandparents anniversary by going to the temple with his grandma.
buying a new cd to discover that they sing that song.

this is the first time in all our years of being together that we're both sick at the same time.

gordon started feeling sick thursday (the day we left for our backpacking trip) and has been in full blown sick mode ever since. i started to feel sick sunday and have been coughing, sneezy, throat on fire, blowing my nose like a mad woman sick ever since. two sick people in one house is not a good thing. okay, i'll be honest. me being sick is not a good thing. gordon never complains about feeling like garbage. he continues with his day like he's just fine (example A: the backpacking trip). i am the complete opposite. you know when i'm sick. i'm not pleasant to be around. i go about my day moaning and looking like how i feel. it's not my best quality, i know. but i did make soup for both of us. gordon cleaned up afterwards because i was too sick for that. actually, i don't have to be sick for gordon to clean up after dinner. he's amazing like that.

moral of this rant...gordon is a silent sufferer. i am not. the end.

my first backpacking trip

coyote gulch
escalante, utah
and bryce canyon (pit stop)

gordon was sick and carried the bulk of our shared items but i went backpacking none-the-less. i carried pretty much all the items i would need to survive in a pack on my back. i hiked in water most of the time. climbed up waterfalls. and rock climbed out of the gulch without a harness or rope. i saw the most breathtaking scenes and experienced nature like i never had before. i can't wait to do it again!
