Things to do this year

1. Go to New York City
(happening beginning of April)
I kind of don't even want to book a hotel room and only take a backpack. I think it'd be so fun and definitely an adventure.

2. jump out of an airplane
(happening sometime this summer)
If you know me really well, this one is a shocker. I appreciate my feet being on the ground so I don't really know why I want to do this other than maybe just being ready to step out of my comfort zone and live life.

3. get a concealed firearms permit
(happening sometime this year)
I told someone at work that I had this goal and he first thought it was weird, but that was quickly replaced with an "oh wait you're from Texas, that makes sense".
So there you have it, that's the only excuse I need to carry a gun and I'm sticking by it.

Once upon a time I got dumped...for the 4th time...by the same person...

....I know...

Anyway...

The first two times I think I just made myself feel better by spending lots of money at the mall.

The third time I chopped my hair off.

The fourth time? Well, that is where this story begins...

About a week after the aforementioned blessed event I get a text from bff Katie saying she hadn't yet fulfilled her goal of leaving town for the month. So she asked how I would feel about a lady spa weekend. Um yes please, sign me up!

So this past weekend, after work on Friday, we jumped in the car and drove down to San Jorge. I don't know why but I refuse to say it in English. It has a nicer ring to it in Spanish either way.

We got there Friday night, checked into our hotel and went out in search of food. We found a lovely local Mexican restaurant, Pancho and Lefty's. After dinner we found a movie theater and watched "The Woman in Black". Yep totally freaked me out.

Saturday we were awake by 8 am. Yay sleeping in! We watched TV for a little while, got dressed and decided to find something to do while we waited for the spa to open. We drove down Main Street and stopped by an estate jewelry store and a few garage sales. I got these awesome earrings for 50 cents. 


When we finally got to the spa, we checked in and got our spa sandals. 

We then went over to the buffet lunch included in our package. After lunch we took a quick dip in the pool, which was still too cold so we moved over to the hot tub. After the hot tub we headed to the steam room for a bit and then lounged in our spa robes and read until our appointments started. 

I had the best hour facial, followed by an hour massage, and then a pedicure. Is it weird that I like people touching me? 

That night we ended by eating at a little family Italian restaurant, going to the movies again and watching This Means War, and then getting frozen custard (which was delish).

Sunday we were again awake by 8 am. We had breakfast and then hit the road back to Provo. It was a lovely, relaxed weekend in which I blew tons of money to have people pamper me. Worth it? Yeah I'd say so. The only down side? Lots of time to think.

My Valentine's day consisted of work, delivering some gifts, eating dinner, walking around the mall, and watching The Bachelor. I was in bed by 9:30.

The highlight of my day? getting business cards!


Boom! I'm so legit.

I felt weird about all that info being on the internetz so I blanked it out. It's probably fairly easy to Google but I figure that's at least a little bit harder than just getting it directly from here.

I stumbled upon this little store on Thursday evening, and by little I mean ginormous...


That is only a very small section of the huge warehouse this thing occupied. I didn't even go through it all....mainly because there was a creepy section that could have been the set of a horror movie.

So anyway, there I was meandering through the many rows of antiques...which were super expensive because they dated wayyy back.

Here are some of my favorite things I stumbled upon

A stuffed lion....

Oh you don't like lions? Then what about this stuffed gazelle..



I think this would be awesome in the entryway of a house..hopefully my house someday



The detailing on this thing was amazing


I want this..only it was already sold


I thought this little rocking chair was adorable and would be super cute in a kids room


and I just thought this one was fun


Last but not least, these creepy tribal things.. there were quite a few creepy things there


I couldn't take pictures of most things straight on because most of the isles were so narrow. There was so much to explore.
