I had very big plans for Saturday since I rarely get a day out without my kids (and husband). Without them, I can move about freely and get so much done. At least that was what I thought was going to happen.
Much to Bobbi's chagrin...I had a packed schedule with little wiggle room. I didn't account for traffic, lingering over coffee, multiple bathroom breaks and 1000 trees.
We started off at Caffe d'bolla in downtown Salt Lake City. This is where I had the most amazing cup of coffee and something called a Bubble Tea. You can read all about my fun coffee experience here.
Our next stop was Home Goods and we had a little difficulty getting there because my navigation system *bitchin Betty* was picking on me. In case you don't remember...I won a $200 gift card from The Inspired Room to make over my bedroom. We found sooo much great stuff and I can't wait to get started putting it all together and showing it to you.
Next...meeting JenJen from Tattertots and Jello at the Festival of Trees. She is even more beautiful and sweet in person as she is on her blog and I got to meet three of her four kids too. We had a great time looking at all of the hundred's of trees and gingerbread houses and even picked up a couple little treats at the Sweet Shop.
Soon, we had to head for home and the Heartland Paper Company in Bountiful. I'm working on a special order for my friend Jessica and this place has the best paper selection.
I made it home in time to cuddle with the kids for a little while before I headed out again...this time with Calvin. I told him that I had a surprise for him and to be ready by 5pm. And I gave him a clue:
The state of being joined.
I was surprising him by taking him to see 2012 at the JUNCTION (hense the clue). He thought I was taking him to join a gym and I really had him going because Gold's Gym is right across the street from the theater at The Junction! He was really surprised!
As for the movie....Calvin loved it. I, was freaking out and scared through the whole thing and half way through I wanted to go home and hide under a table with my kids. I came to the conclusion that if the world is ending...I just want to go quickly. I won't be one of those folks racing around trying to survive. I'll be the one looting the gun store......
I hope you enjoy a little snippet of our day!
