I kind of like people.

May 14, 2011

My ideal day= hanging out with people as much as humanly possible.  I like alone time too but life is just better when you can be wild and crazy outside in 75 degree weather (how there is still that much snow in the mountains, I do not know but I did make Billy build a tree house in the back yard in case there is a flood from all of the melted snow).

IMG 6008

After some quality girl time, it was off to Cafe Rio for my most favorite salad ever.  Thank you to teacher appreciation weak for providing us with free salads (we even got the expensive steak salads muhahaha, we know how to cheat the system)…….if you recall we are the cheapest people alive and people know that and give us food gift certificates because they worry that Billy may starve to death because I eat all of the food in the house before he can even get to it.

IMG 6009

Look who came with us…..the sister.  Why does she have to act grown up and take a normal picture and look like a super model.  Gosh, I have a few things to teach her.

IMG 6013

The sissy took us for fro-yo afterwards with one of her gift cards (Yogurtland, I am not cheating on you, my sister forced this upon me and it was only 1/88th as good as your yogurt).  I had to chase Billy around the store in order for him to be in the background of my picture.  It’s not like I ever talk about him or post pictures of him on the blog, it is like he is getting sick of me forcing him into the blog 12 times a day.

IMG 6014

We sat outside and ate our ice cream.  Summer is here people and Vitamin D from the sun has the same effect on me as endorphins do……..the lethal level of happiness occurs when the two forces are combined and I get to go running outside in the sun!

IMG 6015

We went back to my mom’s house because clearly 24 hours of not hanging out with her is way too long and she had a special treat for me and Rachelle.

She is pointing out to you the fact that it was part blue (even though it looks green) because we have a weird obsession with blue raspberry flavored candy, my mom knows us to well.

IMG 6016

A gummy snake complete with a rattle, head and scales was shared while we watched Teen Mom 2 on my laptop.  No, I did not force Billy to watch such a show and he watched sports in the other room.   I think he was more than okay spending a little time away from the girls because we were so hyped up on sugar it was scary.

Time to go teach some spin and spend some time at the pool and FINALLY go to Costco.  Hope you have the BEST Saturday of your life!!!

———————————————————————————————-

What is a pool NECESSITY for you?

-Lotion (I hate dry, pruney hands more than anything) and something to read.  Okay, a few more include music, gum, sunglasses, a best friend or two and chapstick (at least 3 different ones in case one gets lost and the other runs out from applying it every 48 seconds).

If you could choose a gift card to any restaurant near you what would it be?

-Cafe Rio……hint hint to any student’s parents that read the blog and want to get an end of school gift for me.

What is your favorite way to lie/sit as you are watching a movie?

-I LOVE laying on my stomach at all times with a big fluffy pillow under my chin or on a bean bag-we need one of those again!

Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner) May 14, 2011 at 7:10 am

Ohmygosh Utah is SO PRETTY!! K, I am MOVING for that scenery (and for you of course! :P)

Pool necessity= food and 1000 trashy magazines:)

P.S. WHY are you and your sis so darn gorgeous?! SO preeeeetty!!!

You have to ride the high of evening like that!

Must have something to drink H2O (is what I tell myself to bring) diet soda (what I too often bring) and something to chomp on; gum usually, but it has been mixed nuts as of late.

I am totally a floor girl too.

ATTrio May 14, 2011 at 7:19 am

That sounds like an awesome day!

I love the pool, my parents have one and every summer I was there until I had to grow up and get a job and live far away :( Now I am kinda paranoid about getting into a public pool here in NYC. I mean, I am sure you can guess why. Over crowded!

Gift card to Whole foods! I love their salad bar and could eat there everyday.

Movies in my bed so if I feel like passing out I don't have to move. I am already in bed :)

Have a great Saturday!

Oooh I'm tellin' Yogurtland on youuuu ;)
Pool necessety: SUNGLASSES! then sunblock.

The gift card would have to be RA sushi bar!!!

Fav. position to watch a movie: well if I wanna actually STAY AWAKE & watch the whole thing I would have to sit straight up w/ a pillow on my lap (it's a comfort thing). Otherwise it would be on my side on the couch – but the zzzz's would shortly arrive!

Jess May 14, 2011 at 7:26 am

I would LOVE a gift card to GREEK FIESTA!! Adore. Or Chick fil-a. I'm a simple girl ;)

I love to sit/lay on the couch while watching movies!!

MrsQ318 May 14, 2011 at 7:27 am

I'd love one to this local place back home, Bee's Knees… best tofu pad thai and tons of tapas! YUM!

kelly May 14, 2011 at 7:35 am

so happy to find another addicted to chapstck!

Pool: sunglasses, spf 8, chapstick and a magazine I have already read a million times because it's gonna get wet :)

really a Starbucks giftcard would be lovely – I have a giant coffee addiction even though I only have it once a day.

Have an awesome Saturday!

Hmmm I would want a gift certificate to whole foods!

Hahaha, you're too funny "chapstick at least 3 different ones" I'm addicted too! Trashy magazines are my go-to. It's almost like they are just more socially acceptable when read at a pool or the beach.

Sunglasses and a good read for SURE! I love pools!!!

I would love a gift card to Fresh, a vegan restaurant in my city. It's so yummy and I talked about it in my last post :)

What is a pool NECESSITY for you?

A book, sunblock (I'm religious), and 208428957893758 pals :D!

If you could choose a gift card to any restaurant near you what would it be?

-Theres a restaurant round the corner from me which is BEYOND amazing. So that!

What is your favorite way to lie/sit as you are watching a movie?

-I do exactly like you. I also lie in a fetal position ball and force the bf to orient around me ha ha. I also sleep on my tummy a lot! x

Ahh I went to spin this morning and then spent some time on the elliptical. My legs are about to fall off so I'm watching TV before I need to run errands :) IF it was sunny I would be at the pool with 2 towels, sunglasses, sunscreen for my face and tanning oil for the rest of me, a book and my music.

Amanda @ Running with Spoons May 14, 2011 at 9:37 am

How could I have forgotten about bean bag chairs!?! Omigosh I LOVE them! So comfy. Best way to watch TV for sure.

And quality pool time would include something to munch on, something cool to drink, and something trashy to read :D

Pool necessity?? You and the rest of the blogger chicas, music, diet coke, good book or magazine, tanning oil. :)

giftcard to restaraunt of my choice?? Joe Bandidos or Art City Trollry (I need to take you to BOTH of those places!)

fav way to watch a movie?? lots of fluffy pillows and a big fluffy quilt… both of which usually make me fall asleep. ;)

I really want a Starbucks and Trader Joe's gift card so I can get free groceries and coffee. I am cheap too. I have no student parents to give me a gift card–the only chance I have is this contest where my work gives gift cards to people that use public transportation to get to work a certain amount of times per quarter, so naturally I do take public transit just so I can get a $25 gift card 4 times a year. However you do not get to choose which one you get and I got stuck with Cold Stone last time–don't they know I only eat fro yo and really wanted the Trader Joe's one? jeez. ok tangent over.

That first picture with all the girls is AWESOME! You guys need to start a girl band. Bad ass New Girls On the Block ;)

I would LOVE to have a gift certificate to the Cheesecake factory, because I've never had a bad meal there. The bread is TO DIE for, and oh man their salads… Not to mention Cheesecake!!

I definitely need a good book, some games and company because the pool can get boring fast for me.

Necessity at the pool, first and foremost are sunglasses. I don't like to watch movies on my stomach but love to sleep on my stomach. Sounds like you have a super fun mom! It's been 11 years since I left Utah, seems so funny that back then 75 seemed warm enough for the pool…now I won't go if it's less than 85 or 90 (at least!!!)

If I go to the pool I have to have a good book to read, sunglasses, and my IPOD to listen to. I agree the sunny weather is almost just as good as getting those endorphins up from a good run.
If I were to get a gift card it would have to be to BLUE Sushi, I am love seared Ahi Tuna. Have a great weekend!

I'm craving pool time right about now! Too bad it's currently 50 degrees in MAY!

My pool side needs are magazines, pumpkin seeds, and my ipod!

I'd love a gift card for starbucks right about now…my little college down doesn't have one so now that I'm back home for the summer I'm catching up for the coffee's I've been without this year!

When my family and I have movie nights, my spot is on the floor, on my belly, with the big quilt…the only downside to this is that it's so comfortable that I fall asleep and miss the ending to almost every movie we watch!!

My pool necessity: lots of bottles of water. Seeing all that water makes me thirsty. Or it could be all the sweating. Let's just blame it on seeing the water.

Your sunny pictures are making me super jealous. It dropped about 40 degrees in two days and now it's cold, rainy, and GRAY! Not fun.

Also, I love blue raspberry things, too, but i have to limit them or else my mouth is always, always blue. it never comes off of my inner lips. so annoying.
