For like 2 days of telling (begging) Jon that we needed a quick getaway, he agreed (he’s pretty easy to convince)! We headed down to Vegas early Saturday morning and made it there in about 5 and a half hours. First order of business was Shake Shack! It may have been reason for the trip but it was well worth it! We didn’t have much of a plan while we were there so we just lounged around. After eating we checked into our hotel and napped.. Typical us. Jon gambled for a bit and I just watched.. I find it to be a huge waste of money ha. We also ate a delicious dinner, strolled through the strip, watched the Bellagio fountain show and ate Sprinkles! Jon even got a little lucky at the slots! We were planning on eating a midnight meal (cause, vacay;)) but we thought sleep sounded better haha. The next day we did some shopping and headed home. The whole ride we talked about how it was so nice to get away from reality for even just 48 hours.. We’ve made a promise to get away, just the two of us more.

Time Well Spent

I had quite an interesting weekend! On Friday, Jon and I just did our usual dinner and went to the mall to get a white shirt because the next day we were headed to the color festival. We drove home on Saturday and waited for the rest of the gang to get off work and headed down to Spanish Fork after 3. We stayed until the 6 o’clock throwing and we were FILTHY. (We didn’t shower, look at all that color on us! ๐Ÿ˜ณ) We rented a big van and the 13 of us hit the road to Moab. We slept in the van and woke up at the crack of dawn to start our hike to the delicate arch. It was beautiful and the weather was cool so we were thankful for that! It was such a fun mini trip all packed in such short time! All of that happened in a matter of 24 hours (we live about 4 hours away from Moab) so talk about time well spent! It’s crazy how last minute plans always turn out to be the most fun ๐Ÿ™‚ Nothing better than good company and the outdoors!

 

When we arrived to the Holi Festival of Colors! See how clean we were!

We were the first ones to the top! We just hid behind rocks while waiting so we wouldn’t get blown away!
