I Confess...
My uncle passed away this last weekend and my son had a meltdown about it last night. My heart hurt for him and our loss.
I Confess...
While in Park City, my husband took me shopping, took me to a movie, bought me flowers, bought me some delicious cinnamon ice cream, and cooked me dinner. What a man!
I Confess...
I am nervous to leave my kids this weekend... they both have colds and what not, Drew is sad, etc. I am sure they will be fine, but the mother in me is anxious.

New Years 2013

Welcome to 2013! I was counting down the days to get a fresh start with a new year... the last quarter of the year wasn't the favorite time in my life and I am glad to move on from it.

It didnt end quite as well as I hoped... I found out that my uncle passed away on Friday. He had been suffering an illness for years, we moved him here from Chicago to be close to family, and I am glad we had the opportunity to spend that time with him. The kids loved being around him. The medication he had to take was potent and caused his heart to weaken. He died of a heart attack. It's going to be weird not having him around.

My mom didnt tell us until we got home from our trip...she didnt want to ruin our time away, which I appreciate.

On Saturday Bryan suprised me with a trip to Gardner Village in SLC to take pictures. I've been asking to go and we've never had a chance... so on our way to Park City we stopped. It was fun. I think I got some good shots. I'll have to update this once I upload them.

We have a timeshare and one of the places we can go is Park City, which is a little over an hour away from us. We checked in, got situated, and went to dinner at a place called Blue Sushi. It was pricey, but so good.

Sunday we slept in until 11am. Crazy! I never sleep in. We got up and went shopping at the outlet mall. Bryan said I bought them out. I cant help it when the store is 70% off and I need new (smaller!) pants. We went to see "This is 40". It was kinda raunchy, but I laughed a lot.

On Monday we went to Main Street... visited the Harley Davidson store, ate at the Wasatch Brew Pub. Then we went home and just relaxed... took a nap, watched TV. That was New Years Eve and I dont usually stay up past 10pm so I wanted to be well rested.

We got dressed up... and went to the Canyons for their NYE Gala. It was so fun. They had amazing food, cool decorations, a bar, a DJ, everyone was dancing. We are trying to plan it again for next year.

I am so glad me and my hubby got this time away... it was fun to not have much of an agenda and spend all that time together.

I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Years and I pray for a wonderful 2013.
