We drove through the canyon. The camera was in the trunk, but I wished the entire drive that I had it. I hope to drive through there again. It was a perfect 78 degrees with the windows down. The river was full and the canyon was gorgeous. We listened to music and laughed and talked about what we might do when we got to our amazing hotel. I love my best friend. After all, he's the best :)
When we got to Park City, we had an hour to kill, so we got some Kneaders. I needed me a good cranberry-white chocolate chip cookie. (Don't hate until you eat one. You will change your mind. I promise). After lunch, we went to our hotel--The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Park City. Valet greeted me and they trolleyed our stuff down to our little suite. I already felt like a rockstar and we had been on vacation for 2 hours!
We settled in and I discovered my new love: the flatscreen in the bathroom.
Yes, I am in love. I told you. It's so convenient to be able to watch the news while you shower or do your hair. No need to shout to Bryan and ask, "What did they say??? It's going to HAIL??"
"No honey! That guy is going to JAIL!"
"Oh... I figured hail in August was weird..."
Anyway. Away from the randomness. We settled in and then sat by the pool, where the awesome people of the Waldorf continued to treat us like rockstars with food, drinks, and classical music poolside. Who knew vacations could be so awesome?
Then, my darling husband let me shop. I got dolled up, we got some dinner and he let me go! I didn't find much that first night, except for my new brown belt for our family pictures (A&F Outlet -- appprox. $15. Steal). I hid it, of course so I could find it later. Bryan laughed.
We called it an early night because of our Saturday adventures. I woke up to this outside on my balcony....
That was such a beautiful wakeup call to the amazing morning of Hot Air Ballooning.
Yes, I said it. And yes, we did it.It was so serene and so beautiful. The 6 AM air made me feel so alive! We didn't get to fly over Park City because of the wind, but we drove about 20 minutes to Heber City and flew.
After that, Bryan surprised me with a theraputic massage and a mani/pedi appointment. It was so relaxing and it was exactly what I needed. The massuse discovered that the reason why I get pains in my right shoulder is because I've been holding babies on my right hip since I was ten--the curse that came with being a young aunt. She was absolutely amazing. And my manicurist was probably one of the sweetest girls ever! I really was spoiled. Bryan really does love me. And I love him desperately.
After that, we went out to dinner where I had the best burger I have ever had in my life! I don't know why, but that thing was DELICIOUS! There really are no words to describe the awesomeness that was this burger. It's times like these when I wish I had a better phone so I could have taken pictures of the amazing food we ate. We dined, we laughed, we walked. Me and my best friend.
Sunday morning, I woke up to the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I have ever seen. It was colorful like the morning sun and smelled amazing. Next to it was a book made by the love of my life. It was called, A Glimpse to Ever After: The Story of Our First Year. He's so sweet. I decided that making a book of our year would be a great way to archive our life together. He's awesome.
We cuddled and watched movies for the rest of the night. It was truly a relaxing weekend. The best weekend to date.
Oh, ps. I'm going to Katy Perry on Monday :)
