My Day Off

This week has been kind of long. With a teething 22 month old, and not getting much sleep, I found myself anxiously excited for the weekend! Daddy and Steven Day was approaching, along with my day to relax!
Here are my 10 steps to relaxation:
Step 1: Go to a baby shower with fun neighbors and enjoy the shade and company before the heat becomes unbearable
Step 2: Drive to Salt Lake to get together with a few friends from the good old days (THANK YOU THANK YOU Jamie for getting your pictures up so quickly, so I could get them too!)
Step 3: Eat a fantastic lunch at the Cheesecake FactoryStep 4: After surprising half the group with the announcement that you're 15 weeks pregnant, go into Claire's and act like you're cool Step 5: Continue to take cool pictures until you find out you're not supposed to take pictures in ths store...
Step 6: Go on a walk through the OUTRAGEOUS heat on Temple Square and walk into the Joseph Smith Memorial Buildling for a some R&R time on the couches enjoying the AC
Step 7: Explore a new place! The Beehive House was a lot of fun!
Step 8: Continue to take fun and crazy pictures with your friends
Step 9: Enact what could possibly be a new "best friends" statue somewhere....
Step 10: Have a splash war before deciding the heat was too much, and calling it a day!
Thanks for giving me an excuse for a day off ladies! Hopefully we can make this a yearly tradition, and gain followers!

Yep Launi, I tried to be sneaky about that one ;) We didn't get a chance to tell our everyone in our families until the 4th of July weekend, so I just held off as long as possible. Luckily, it's really not hard to just lay on your couch and do nothing for oh 8 or 9 weeks. :)
