45 minute spin class (if you are in p-town, I teach Wednesday nights @ 6:30, Thursday morn @ 6:00 and Saturday morn @ 9:15, come and let’s be sweaty bff’s.
45 minutes elliptical. I had a magazine and the time went by fast. I really think that cross-training is a great thing to do while training….at least for my body, my joints can only handle so much running. Mentally, I would run everyday but gotta keep my joints healthy.
FIFTEEN MINUTES of weights. I was burning by the end and quite proud of myself.
I may have stayed at the gym way too long and would have been super late to school if I got ready there. Is it weird that I showered and got ready in the girls locker room at my school…..hey, I don’t have a 1st period Tuesday and Thursday….I think this may be a new habit. It was nice to take my time and have the whole locker room to myself.
Time for another ridiculously photoriphic filled post.
I did my wedding recaps here and here. I decided today that I would show you what we did for our honeymoon. I am doing this because I was day dreaming during my 12 hour work day of going on vacation with billster and started looking at our previous vacation pictures and thought, ‘why not overload you with pictures and talk about something that was almost 2 years ago.’
The first night we stayed at the most beautiful bed and breakfast in Heber, Ut (in between Provo and Park City). It was gorgeous and the breakfast was amazing….um, biscuits and gravy, yes please.
We stuck around P-town for two days to open presents and to spend time with family that had flown in for the wedding. We then drove to Cali where we stayed at a fancy hotel (thanks mom and dad jacobs) because we had an open house in California. It was awesome…..delicious foods, friends and family in California and of course getting to wear your dress again and get all dolled up.
We then set off for our cruise. I think you either love cruises or you hate them. Billy and I are OBSESSED with cruises. We went on one with my family to the Caribbean 2 years earlier and we knew that we wanted to go on one for our honeymoon (once again, thanks mom and dad jacobs:)
I think we will choose to cruise wherever we want to go vacation…Europe, Asia, you name it…..get us on that boat.
We love everything about it….the night entertainment, an awesome gym just steps from your room, ridiculous amounts of delicious food (especially, the free ice cream station that is open 24 hours a day), hanging out with retired cruisers that cruise around the world rather than having a home, the fact that it is super cheap for us since we don’t spend money on alcohol or gambling, being taken to awesome locations without having to plan a thing. Pools, hot tubs, ice-skating rink, someone cleans your room everyday and leaves towels that are folded into cute animals, free hot chocolate, the awesome staff from all over the world….okay, I think you get it. We are obsessed with cruises.
We were supposed to go Mexico on our cruise but the whole Swine Flu thing rerouted us up North. At first I was a little disappointed but I LOVED the places that we went because I had never been to them and they were so beautiful. The only annoying part of cruises is the mandatory practice emergency evacuation. Boring, but somehow we managed to make it fun.
Every night you get to eat in a fancy dining room and order whatever and as many items from the menu as you want. I think my average was 3 appetizers, a main course and 3 desserts. I obviously licked my plate clean in the photo below.
Our first stop was to Astoria, Oregon (where the Goonies was filmed). We walked the entire town and had the best clam chowder ever. There were also some amazing antique shops, an awesome museum and the coolest small town feeling. Oregon is so green and the air was so clean….I think I want to move there.
And there was a purple house….obsessed.
Next stop was Victoria, Canada. I had never been to Canada before and it was way too awesome.
Yes, 2 of each please.
Just to prove that I am not the only weirdo in this marriage…..
We also had some of the best candy and hot chocolate in my life in Canada. I will be back with more money next time and buy out the whole store.
We found a little restaurant by the water that was amazing. Fun fact….I took pictures of meals that I thought were beautiful before I even knew what blogs were. I can’t help the fact that I think food is pretty:)
The final stop on the cruise was in Seattle. K, Seattle stole my heart. I felt like it was a super clean, safe version of New York. The food + the shopping + the people =amazing. Billy, can we go back asap???
This was the first time I had ever tried fish and chips. They were a fear food of mine for way too long. How did I miss out on this amazing meal for so many years of life. I am ashamed and have declared to make up for lost time and order it whenever we are at a place with good seafood (yeah, Utah doesn’t really have the freshest fish).
We even made some friends on the cruise that were on their honeymoon and from P-town at the same time as us. Fun Fact #2 Billy likes to pretend he is a professional skater and does all the crazy tricks, moves and facial expressions as Will Ferrell on “Blades of Glory.”
Have you ever been on a cruise? Where did you go? Did you like it?
-I have been on three and they are my favoritest in the whole wide world.
Where did you go on your honeymoon? Where would you go on your dream honeymoon?
Are there any foods that you never had for the first big chunk of your life that you have recently tried and loved?
-Besides fish and chips. Bacon. I was always afraid of it but I ate it at Billy’s parent’s house recently and I am hooked.
