over the weekend

phil planned a special, surprise anniversary
trip to salt lake this past weekend. phil gets so excited 
about surprises that I nearly have to tell him to 
not tell me what we are going to do. it's so sweet.
^^ we ate dinner at the greek restaurant that we
went to a year and a half ago. that was the same night that
we first told each other that we loved one another.

^^ on saturday, we went to a local belgian waffle 
place for breakfast and felt courageous (and silly enough) to eat the 
"mitrailleuse" or machine-gun sandwich (a baguette stuffed 
with fries, sauce, and sausages! heart attack!) along with a vanilla 
waffle with ice cream and blueberries. so, there was at least
one thing healthy about this meal: blueberries. :)

^^ we took a wonderful hike in big cottonwood 
canyon later that afternoon. However, since I am a carrying
a small oven on my lower abdomen I was admittedly a 
bit of a baby (no pun intended) on the way up the steep 
trail with all the crazy afternoon heat and with me sweating 
like, well, someone sweating a lot. cute image, I know. 
but, phil was a good sport with me (angel, that man) and it was well
worth it when we arrived at the top with the beautiful lake 
and the cool wind to greet us. 

 ^^ we had our anniversary dinner in an italian heaven.

^^ I love this picture, but I just realized that I had left my first button 
on my skirt undone. as you can tell, this girl had 
just a little to much to eat...

^^ on sunday, there were two french women at the hotel breakfast 
sitting near our table. every time I come across french people 
I find myself trying to devise ways that I can go and talk to them.
it's perhaps a little creepy but I just loooove french people.
anyway, at one point the women looked over at me and immediately
I said, "bonjour!" (a little too enthusiastically?), but they were so
 kind and spoke with me for a while. what a thrill! 
we also attended "music and the spoken word" that morning and then 
went to church. after church we ran into some special people that
both phil and my dad know through their connection to sweden. it was
such a cool coincidence.
