While I was on my blogging hiatus, lots of fun things happened. Alex, Jay and I went to a trainer. She had us do a rowing machine and see how far we could go in 15 minutes. We had to keep our resistance between 2 and 3. Alex was all proud as he walked away with 3300 meters in 15 minutes. Jay got 1900 meters and I did 2900. I took this shot for proof. The machine ran for 40 seconds to stop so my numbers are up in this shot. Alex wasn't very pleased that his old mom almost kept up with him.
Here is a picture of the old woman after the serious battle on the rowing machines. I look like crap. Sweaty crap. But it was good. I was pretty dang proud of myself.
Maylin and I went on a date and had cold stone. It was nice to be out with just her. I love her sweetness.
The first weekend in August, Jay took me away for a night. So, we only went downtown Salt Lake, We stayed in the Grand America. It was awesome. I got my hair done. I figured after he saw me look so gross at the gym, I ought to remind him that I can clean up a bit. Yes, people I can curl my hair. Only happens a few times a year.
I saw Wicked in London, but Jay wanted to see it too, so we went on our night out. It was great!
At 11:30 that night, we ordered room service! Seriously, nothing better than incredible chocolate cake and ice cream close to midnight. It was the first time I had EVER had room service.
The amazing flowers in the lobby. The lobby also had fresh, warm chocolate chip cookies every day. I thought it might be weird to get a picture of those.
We also got a couples massage at the hotel spa. Here we are with out sparkling cider and creme brulee. We ate this while we waited for our massage. Pretty awesome.
Totally feeling pampered and relaxed!
We also spent a day and 1/2 just lounging at the pool. We didn't eat anywhere fancy except for breakfast. The rest of the time we ate by the pool and they waited on us hand and foot.
The pool was awesome. I got burned. Jay dove too deep in the pool and scraped his nose on the bottom. He bled, and it hurt. But it was kinda funny. It was an AMAZING get away!!
Also, back to the 24th of July......Jay poses by our town's float for the parade. He is dressed up in the costumes they had for kids to use to dress as an ancestor. He is so crazy.
