Because I can’t imagine not sharing these photos… here are a few random shots from my trip that didn’t make it into a post last week. Park City, I heart you.
Mainly this blog post title comes from the fact that kids in ice skates are friggen adorable. Whether they are fully decked out in hockey gear, or simply effortless in figure skates…kids can do no wrong. Unless they are running their skates over my foot. Which did not happen. Phew.
During two different occasions while out in Park City, I had the chance to watch twins Preston and Harlow take their skating lessons. Preston, in full-on gear (Go Pirates!) and Harlow with the figure skating group. Those tiny humans are better than I am when it comes to skating, guaranteed. These photos say it all. They are the cutest right?
I’m back! Did you miss me? I missed you guys. I’m back to a routine today…kinda. I say kinda because I’m currently jet-lagged all to hell and going on a few hours of sleep. Thanks Jack. Also didn’t help that I came home to a broken shelf in my laundry room and laundry detergent/things all over the floor. Jack was like, “How could you leave me in this squalor?”
But I digress. Such a busy day ahead but I thought I’d give you my first recap from Utah Trip 2014 with a few shots from my first stand up paddle boarding (SUP) experience. And let me just say – if I can give you one tip, and only one – wear shit you do not care about losing. I’ll explain in a moment.
So. We started at Deer Valley in Park City where there’s this area with a little pond/lake that’s just the perfect size for a beginner paddle boarder like myself. Aleisha and I hung out with the kiddos and watched them feed the fish and ducks before we convinced ourselves to get up on the boards.
If ya’ll know me, you know that I’m accident prone. So let’s see how this goes down.
I paddle out on my knees at first. Easy enough. But I’m a perfectionist when it comes to these things so I’m like, “Ok, self. Let’s get our ass to stand up on this board.” And stand up I did. For the full hour. Until the very end when I made Aleisha take photos of me and then she may have suggested I do a yoga pose. Maybe that wasn’t the smartest move for me…
Long story short…I fell in. My beautiful sunglasses you see above? They are at the bottom of the murky lake along with both of our dignities, which were lost for the day. All downhill from there folks.
But…overall I really enjoyed it. And I definitely want to try it again. Next time, I’ll bring my
WalMart Target sunglasses.
Hey-yo from out west! I’m not gonna lie – I really don’t want to come home. This is the life. Relaxation and beautiful scenery. Gimme. Doesn’t hurt that Aleisha has a great spot to rest your head after a long travel day. And days full of exploration.
Being out here just makes you wanna be outside all the time. So I’m going to keep this as short as possible. Because vacation.
It’s link-up time with Amanda from Meet @ the Barre. Let’s see what we have here…
Hey Now by London Grammar. It helps they have a fantastic name. I enjoy this song. Tis my jam of the week.
It just ended this week but hello Ladies of London can you just be on all year? Andy? How about we work on this. Also Team Caroline.
I’m cheating. Because I’m here. Park City, you saucy minx, I love you.
My Friends Are Married Tumblr is one of my fav Tumblrs in all the land. And this betch is funny on the other social media outlets too. Twitter, making a single girl laugh, one day at a time.
My new glasses. Because yes. Aren’t they the cutest? Sorry I’m not sorry for the selfie.
Alright I’m out. I have 3 days left of vacation so I’ll probably be back to the regularly scheduled programming come Tuesday. All jetlagged and happy to be at work. Have a good weekend my lil rugrats!
Because sometimes people ask me where Park City is. So I made it easy and put the state in my title today. I’m sweet like that. I actually wrote this last night (sshhhh) because my ass is on a plane right now and I’m too cheap for internet. I spent my extra dolla bills on an exit row. Long flight = worth it. Also what would I write about other than being bored on my long-ass flight, hopped up on
happy pills alcohol to easy the nerves?
I’m going to be gone for almost a week – I know. But I’ll come back to you at the end of the week for a fun Friday Favorites. I am so sad that I missed linking up last week, Amanda – total sidebar. I did the post but had no internet to link up. Can someone help me out Friday and add my link? Pamela – side eyes at you for some help. Ha. No pressure. But you did say you would. So I’m calling you out publicly anyway because I heart you mucho.
Anyway. I’m off to hang with my bestie Aleisha and her cute twins. I love chasing those crazy kids. I shall have some good recaps next week I promise. I mean that scenery really just takes the photos for me.
And a big thank you to all the comments yesterday on my new apartment. Ya’ll are the sweetest. I need to stop saying ya’ll right now before I turn into some
pseudo attorney who is looking for love on The Bachelorette.
