My kind of girl and why does free food always taste so much better?

How is it possible that it takes 3 hours to walk through Ikea?  I went with my sister to go pick up this mirror (with the white trim instead) for the bathroom that they are remodeling.  While we were there I ended up getting some presents for Brooke’s FIRST BIRTHDAY that is in just 9 days.  I seriously cannot even believe it.  

IMG 0077

Walking around Ikea worked up a ginormous appetite and so when we got back to my sister’s house we all rushed in to the kitchen to start making lunch.  When I sat down with my salad I looked over at Curly and she had a plate full of animal crackers as her lunch.  My kind of girl.

IMG 0086

And then when all of the kids went down for naps or to go play my sister brought out the big guns.   That Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch should be added to your grocery shopping list right this second.   

IMG 0088

My sister’s husband works for BYU (where I graduated from:) and they had a work party at Seven Peaks last night.  We had the entire water park to ourselves.  The lines for these slides are usually crazy long so waiting less than 60 seconds for a slide was very refreshing.  Brooke went on her first water slide ever.  I wish so badly my phone was waterproof so that I could have brought it to take pictures because she had her big fluffy life jacket on and was giggling uncontrollably as we went down the tube ride.  

I will never ever ever get sick of those mountains. 

IMG 0093

Not only were there no lines but they had all you can eat dinner, soda and popsicles.  

IMG 0092

Costa Vida pork salads, I really and truly do love you.

IMG 0090

We stayed until the park closed and when I got home there was this amazing assortment of produce from my brother’s garden waiting on the counter.  Nothing like writing a blog post while eating snap peas at 11:30 pm.   I may just have to have that broccoli for breakfast.

Why the mean girl attitude? It’s really unnecessary and imature. But what is laughable about the entire thing is that you are wrong! I’ve looked back at 7 (I think) posts now and she is no where near the first comment. Get over it and just be nice. Who cares??? Goodness gracious!

I’ve not found a Ben and Jerry’s that I love, but Wegman’s makes an ice cream called under the boardwalk, and it’s incredible. It’s caramel ice cream with sea salt caramel swirls & caramel truffles. Delicious!

Where did you go to college? What did you major in?

UGA! Political Science and International Affairs was my major. I was doing pre-law for awhile and then decided against it…

My workout- 30 minutes of pilates (this morning), 4 mile run after work, yoga and 10 minutes of additional stretching.

Favorite Ben & Jerry’s Flavor- New York Super Chunk Fudge or Chubby Hubby. Or Dublin Mudslider. Basically all of them, actually… :) We currently have Peanut Butter Cup in our freezer!

Whenever I get ice cream, I get Ben n’ Jerry’s. The best flavors are: Shweddy Balls, Phish Food, Americone Dream, and one with the pop rocks though I can’t remember the name and google isn’t helping me with that! Right now, I have Banana Split in the fridge and it is SO good!

PS: If you haven’t already, you should go take a tour of the Ben n’ Jerry’s factory – AWESOME!!!

IKEA is seriously a black hole. I swear that every time I go in there, even if it’s only for one thing, I end up coming out 3 hours later and not even knowing where the time went. I think it has something to do with the layout of the store… it’s like a maze and you have to go through everything just to get to the one area you want to be in. Sneaky.

On a side note, we took my hub’s son for a drive through those mountains last night. Well, not those, but those up our way. We drove up North Ogden Divide to Eden and Liberty and then Huntsville. We went to the beach where we open water swim, and then we headed up Trapper’s Loop to Snowbasin so he could see the 2002 Olys site and where the Tour of Utah will be this Saturday (and was last year).

I actually like the longer bangs, maybe grow them out? IDK, I can never run with bangs in my face; when I had shorter hair I immediately needed to get it back to ponytail-length or I’d go nuts getting it in my face on runs.

Would you believe I have only ever had Phish Food when it comes to Ben and Jerry’s? I went to a really isolated college and I think it was the only kind in the local store. I was underwhelmed. :/ Big chunks of not-great chocolate and not much else. Must be missing something.

Ben and Jerry’s? Never had it. We have graeters here, google it. You’ll never want anything else. I think they ship too…and then there is a cute little shop right down the street that has the best fresh homemade waffle cones of all time. Seriously. I want to put the two together sometime.
