On Friday, Will picked me up from work and we went to eat at EVA downtown SLC. It is a quaint little restaurant that serves tapas and we left more than satisfied. We ordered the pea and spinach gnocchi, meat and cheese board, steak and the brussels sprouts! Then we went to the Olympus game to watch Will’s little brother Jake play in their first season game! I don’t think I will ever outgrow high school sports. Is that bad? Haha!
On Saturday Will told me to be ready at our house by 8am. I was supposed to run 16 miles for my marathon training but figured this was the perfect excuse NOT to run 16 miles 😂. I am really starting to get burnt out from running… which is not good because I have the biggest race of my life creeping up real fast ah. Oh well, I might not be able to walk ever again after the race but we’re chillin.
Anyways, that morning he drove me to Rich’s bagels (my fave) and when I walked in, my whole family was there to surprise me! It was 8am in the morning so as tired as they all were, I was so happy they came to surprise me! Then we drove up to Secret Lake up Big Cottonwood Canyon and walked around the lake all together. It was beyond pretty! If you are in Utah, you need to go up there. It’s dreamy.
On Sunday I woke up and Will had flowers, Diet Coke and donuts for me (because what else would I ever want on my birthday?!) and then we went to a two sacrament meetings, had a combined family dinner, (Will’s mom made all my favorite foods!). walked down to visit my grandparents and ended the night watching Broadchurch on Netflix.
It was a simple birthday but I loved seeing my family, spending time with Will and obviously eating as much sugar as I wanted!
Definitely one to remember.
