Trip 1 to Utah!

My weekend trip to Utah was perfect last weekend! The flights were on time (early even) and I even managed the whole row to myself on one of the flights! Dream come true except I was too excited to sleep.

Seeing Jake was wonderful!!!! I love my husband. He is addicting to be around. We sped off to the hotel in a speedy but legal like fashion. He had flowers, candles, sparkling cider, strawberries, carmel, chocolate sauce and whipped cream there when I walked in. lol. He even put together a mix of songs to get our groove on to! Needless to say, we had a fun night (and we might have even run out mid night for a burrito at our fav mexican place)! The strawberries and whipped cream made for good breakfast, but that's it my friends!!

I was so giddy to see the kids the next morning! I just hugged and kissed them to death.  I couldn't believe how grown up Logan looked! He took a second to warm up to me, Zoey too. It was like they didn't believe I was REALLY there. We had so much fun though, playing and celebrating Logan's birthday.

The only bad thing is being with Jake I just eat like crap!! Why is that? Popcorn and soda at the movies, a soft taco inbetween lunch a dinner. I would even think of doing it in Baltimore. I have to figure out where those choices are coming from and get a hold on it before I move out there.

Here are some pics from the weekend. For the first time in a long time I didn't shy away from taking pics with Jake or the kids! ..... 2 weeks before we are reunited again!!

love this little blonde boy!

only pictures of zoey we got were ones in action....typical

playing at kangeroo zoo

my cute hubby, oh and me

Hurry and distract him before he realize what a lame crown he is wearing!!

Logan loves ice cream comes.... hence the cake i made

Jake and I had fun making the rainbow cake!

Tomorrow I will do my weigh in. I have been working at a High School Middle School Multicultural Conference all weekend. If it weren't for my super tight band (and the catwheels me and the chaperones were doing at the dance last night),the scale would have been scarier. Hoping in the morning to have a more accurate number. Between being in Utah last thurs-mon and at my conference thurs to late afternoon today.... it's not gonna be pretty. Oh well. It's been a great 2 weekends! So thankful my band keeps me in check while I am mentally worlds away from it all!!
