The Greatest Weekend

I am so excited. This is like the most awesome of awesome weekends in 2017.

Awesomeness cubed

So here goes. Friday morning we are headed to Utah early. We will be staying at my favorite place in Sundance this trip. We can ski in and out of the property and this will be our first stay we get to do that. Makes for a fun day and plenty of hot chocolate breaks lol. Friday night is our annual Christmas Movie with clients and friends. This year the movie is The Last Jedi. I can’t wait to see everyone and to see the Saga continue. I have been telling everyone there is some huge reveal in the movie. It is going to be EPIC!

Saturday we are having an early dinner at Tucanos then the BYU Utah basketball game. Rise and Shout Cougars! Beat the Pukes! Going to enjoy my 4 inches of Cougar Tail and milk at the game and we are going to make some noise! Sunday we will go to our old Ward. Will be nice to see everyone else. I can’t believe 2018 brings two years since we moved. Happiest of days reunited with friends.

Monday we will be skiing as I mentioned. Glad they have enough snow to finally open. Monday night we attend the Forgotten Carol concert at UVU. This is one of our favorite things to do. This is the 11th time but first in a couple of years. It will be a fun evening with friends and family. If you are unfamiliar with Michael McLean’s Forgotten Carols make the time to go see it. If you can’t buy the CD and Book. Uncle John will bring such Joy into your life. Here is a link to The Forgotten Carols.

The other thing I love about this concert is at the end everyone sings Together Forever. It is so powerful and such a way to set the stage for Christmas. Here is the video.

Together Forever

Tuesday we will sleep in, have a big breakfast and then head home. I can’t believe the stars lined up this way for “The Greatest Weekend of the Year.” But they did. Now if BYU wins it will be perfect. Go Cougars!

Perfect Weekend

Have you ever had a perfect time?  One which you wish you could freeze.  Last night comes as close as perfection can get.  Friends and family joined us for an evening at the Summit View Retreat.  We told stories, ate food, shared hugs, cried, laughed and stayed up way too late.  Even after our guests left those of us staying here were up a few more hours.  The other parties this week were fun but last night was absolutely one of my precious moments I will remember forever.  I have been here in Park City a few times for the Sundance Film Festival but this by far exceeded my other experiences.  Beyond grateful to those that made it happen.  I can’t take credit for these parties, some very talented peeps stepped in and made it happen. I will say this, you  can never order enough grilled pineapple from Tucanos.  They were laughing at me when I told them how much to order.  It was enough, but barely.  I have not done parties at Sundance every year, but this was the first year we hosted parties of our own.  I keep asking myself why did we wait so long?  Today’s activities include skiing and snowboarding, a big Kneaders lunch, massages (we have a massage therapist here till 5), hot tub is open, and a few plan on hitting Main Street for a few hours.  Kids want to watch another movie or two in the theater.  Today I may hang with the kids 🙂  We are making a huge breakfast at 7, I may get up soon and start preparing.  I totally can’t sleep, way to over stimulated lol.  

Updated…We just served a breakfast.  Scrambled eggs, marbled eggs, hard boiled eggs, waffles, pancakes, French toast, scones, cinnamon roles, celestial toast, jam, sausage, ham, bacon…lots of bacon 🥓, orange juice, grape juice, pineapple juice, apple juice, strawberries, bananas, oranges. You could make breakfast burritos if you want. We have a full on breakfast buffet.
