Cape Cod Girls Trip

Spring again and with it our annual Girl’s Getaway.  With busy schedules we had to really work this year to find the time.  Soooo worth it though.  Anyway early start for me catching an early flight to Salt Lake City.  We made quite the scene when we found each other.  There may have been some jumping and screaming.  A few odd looks thrown our way.  I do not apologize for being excited.  😇

We grabbed a quick breakfast and I boarded first and was able to get us a row.  I don’t mind Southwest Airlines boarding because the two free bags so is worth it.  This flight the Middle was totally ok with me.  It was fun catching up and friends make for a great place to lay your head.  We arrived in Boston at 5:25 pm and after getting the luggage and our rental car we were starving.  Mandy had made a reservation at Abe & Louie’s.  I can see why they were so highly recommended and definitely had the WOW effect.  There was so many things we wanted to try so we ordered four entrees and just split it up.  We got a Filet Mignon, a Maine Lobster, Prime Pork Chop and the Prime Rib.  No we did not finish it all.  But OMG it was unbelievably good.  Between appetizers and salad and desserts, which we also shared, it was an incredible meal.  I won’t even tell you about the desserts.  Just go the next time you are there.  Okay I will say one thing about the desserts.  A 7 layer chocolate cake that I can still taste.  It will melt your brain.  We had to order milk because it was that good.  

We got into the place we were staying pretty late.  The fog had come in and it was a little creepy, I won’t lie.  There is a carriage house that we were not going to go check out.  Kinda felt like a Stephen King novel.  We got our stuff in the main house and there we stayed lol.  I was so tired.  I think I slept most of the two hour drive out to Truro.  Truro is a little more than half way up the arm of the Cape.  

Tuesday was our big day.  We went to the store for food and supplies.  I have a friend there that agreed to put together a dōTERRA class for us.  She grew up on the Cape and knows everyone.  I had arranged for a caterer and since this place we were staying is kind of historic we had planned a tour as part of the event.  Mandy and Sara are big time in dōTERRA and we had a successful night.  My friend did a great job inviting people. 

Wednesday we slept in and since sunshine was in the forecast decided to go explore.  We spent the morning in Orleans and the afternoon west in Falmouth.  I really love the Cape.  So much history and they have lighthouses!  We had dinner in this place called the Quarterdeck.  A quant little place in Falmouth that was built from the original lumber of MacDougall’s Boatyard.  The boatyard was there in the 1600s.  It just boggles my mind.  Dinner was wonderful I had the fish and chips and they have their very own Quarterdeck Rootbeer.  We talked them into Rootbeer floats for dessert!  The stained glass art in the Quarterdeck was so beautiful.  

Wednesday night was the first night we weren’t exhausted.  It was a fun day and I think we were all feeling a bit carnal.  Is that a word I can use?  Anyway we got back around 8 pm and yeah.  It was a very pleasurable night.  You know there are actually a lot of things 3 girls can do together.  I still will never forget the look of lust on Sara’s face as she said “Oh. My. God!”  She then screamed.  I don’t recall ever seeing her cum that hard.  It was awesome!  

Thursday we had another sunny day and headed for Martha’s Vineyard.  We were able to tour a bit around Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven.  Grabbed lunch and ice cream but the highlight was a tour of an old bed and breakfast in West Tisbury.  It was built in 1790 and kind of reminded me of what maybe the Homestead in Midway was like before the golf course and all the additional buildings were added.  It was beautiful.  A very popular place for weddings.  

Friday we slept in.  Finally!  We had a follow up dōTERRA class with some that couldn’t attend Tuesday night and a couple that attended Tuesday that brought some friends back.  We had lunch brought in and had a fun couple of hours.  Friday afternoon we headed to Provincetown up the arm.  It was raining but we still went out.  We stopped for dinner at Bayside Betsy’s and had Clam Chowder soup and Ribs for dinner.  It was really good and really messy lol.  After dinner we stopped at Lewis Brothers Homemade Ice Cream.  I had this caramel ice cream.  Unbelievable!  

Saturday we got up super early and headed back to Boston.  Flight was at 9 am but it’s a two hour drive.  Caught a couple of naps on the flight back.  Vacations wear you out afterall.  We had scored some Jazz tickets for Saturday’s game so Keith brought the kids down.  We went and had lunch at Blue Lemon and killed some time at City Creek, then almost saw the Jazz win.  I really thought they were going to do it.  The energy level was insane and the Vivint Center was rocking.  But Kevin Durrant in Beast Mode swept away our hopes.  It was fun though.  The kids had never been to a playoff game.  We stayed the night in Park City and thank goodness slept in.  We left around 10:30 stopped at Kneaders for breakfast.  Yes they are open on Sunday in Park City.  We are on the way back to Idaho now.  Was a fun week but there is no place like home.  

Schizophrenic Weather

April always brings interesting weather to Zion.  Sunny but cold.  Rain, rain, and more rain.  The microburst of wind and weekend after weekend of wanting to do yard work but you have bad weather only to turn beautiful on Sunday.  Winter does not want to let go, it is the most Schizophrenic time of the year without a doubt.  April is almost over so with May comes real Spring.  I am excited.  

April not only brings an adventure in weather but also a couple of fun events.  This past week I was in Park City again.  This was a hard week to get away.  Three kids came down sick and as a mom it is very difficult to leave your family sick.  I made lists for Keith of what to give them and stocked the house with juices, Gatorade and soups.  They survived and other than a few missed days of school by Friday they were back among the living.  Essential Oils, Gatorade, rest and Priesthood blessings are the thing.  

I arrived Tuesday evening and was so tired from being up late with the kids the night before that I just crashed.  Wednesday I had been asked to come speak on what a client really wants and booking the next event.  They had a nice lunch for us after and then off to event prep that afternoon.  A couple of highlights from this event I really enjoyed,  Thursday night we had a super hero themed costume party.  There were about 200 guests so lots of heroes and villians.  I went as Harley Quinn and even had my bat.  It was just a fun social and some great prizes for some awesome costumes.  The winners were Thor, Spider-Man and Captain Kirk.  The other highlight was on Friday night.  It was a free night but the Jazz were playing Game 6.  So anyone that wanted to watch the game we had the screen up and rootbeer floats and Jazz tees for everyone that came.  It was a great game until the very end when they lost!  We had about 100 peeps and we had a blast!  Saturday morning we had breakfast and the last session before wrapping at 11:30.  Anothet successful event in the books.  Grabbed lunch with the CEO and hit the road by 1:30.  It was so great to be home.  The kids made tacos for dinner and we caught up over smoothies.  The cat got scratches from me before bed and was purring like crazy and the dog just wanted to cuddle.  I got welcome home sex from Keith lol.  It was a good homecoming.  Monday is a girls trip to Cape Cod.  Early flight to SLC where I’ll meet up with Mandy and Sara.  One take-away from this week that really impressed me was the reminder to be in the moment.  Where you are at and what you are doing is where the action is.  Make the most of your real time moments.  Everything else is happy to wait for you.  ❤️

Utah Jazz

I will be the first to say i’m not an expert in basketball.  I played one year as a freshmen in high school and no it wasn’t my thing.  I am a volleyball player 🙂  We went to the Jazz game last night.  We were looking at the NBA stats and Minnesota who they lost to pretty badly is a mid tier team at best in the West.  They looked amazing compared to the Jazz.  Keith obviously is the expert all things basketball said they were lazy on defense, lacked a competitive spirit and dare I repeat it didn’t seem they were well coached.  I am sure dealing with NBA players is probably not easy with the egos, high salaries, etc but yeah they looked pretty flat.  The Jazz currently own the worst record in the West and only 3 teams I believe have a worse record.  They are young and hopefully they turn it around but last night was ugly.  Minnesota should have left Utah feeling like NBA Champions they sure looked like it.  Pick it up Jazz, hussle more, play some defense and win a few for me.
