Cold Weather Favorites

Happy Thursday! Last night my mom and I went to the mall & Target for a few fun things and I nearly fell over when I saw all the Christmas stuff out. I’m definitely not the person that bemoans the early placement of holiday stuff. I. LOVE. it. I immediately went home and jumped online and guess what?! I was able to peruse the Nordstrom holiday gift guide. It was a glorious hour. I compiled my favorite items for fall and winter and couldn’t wait to share!

Exploring Utah: The Salt Flats

Can you even believe it’s the middle of August? I’m ready for the end of the 90-100 degree weather we’ve been enduring! We’ve been on a few fun trips to get out of the desert heat here…so helpful! Our favorite so far? San Francisco! We’re a little bit weird and we love the drive through Tahoe. It makes the boring Nevada part worthwhile! Plus, there’s a Grimaldi’s in Reno and you know how we feel about our pepperoni and mushroom.

We made a pit stop at the Salt Flats to take a few pictures and it was so much fun! We tried to do our best to not look like we were melting…it was so hot! If you’ve never been out there, make sure you go sometime soon. It’s the absolute best for photo ops. The lighting was so fun and made that lip color really stand out. Two thumbs up for orange lips!

Utah Day Trips: Visiting Goblin Valley

Our trip to Goblin Valley was so much fun! We started out in the morning and arrived just after 1:00. It was an easy, beautiful drive and we were able to have a lot of talking time and sing-along time! We had purchased snacks and water the day before, so we were all set to go before we arrived. Once we arrived, we explored Valley 1 for a little bit before heading out to the Goblin’s Lair. Fair warning: expect a long walk! Well, expect a long walk if it’s really hot—the temperature surely made the mile and a half feel like 12! It was entirely worth the 40 minutes of complaining though. The entrance into the Lair was a fun climb and there was a neat cave once you were inside. The temperature dropped substantially and it was a lovely break!

This was our first view of Goblin Valley! It was totally worth the drive. Such a fun experience and it was obviously made better by the fact that Alan had been here before. Is anyone else a Galaxy Quest fan?!

I had to climb everything. Obviously.

I thought my poses were cool until I got this shot of Jack. Um, ya. Awesome.
