Autumn Utah Trip Pt. 1

 I am back from the wonderful weekend in Utah
It went way too fast...here is a recap of some of it...oh and we drove on Thursday...hate the drive. It was snowy and rainy and took longer than normal but I am glad we made it there safely. We stayed overnight at Dane & Taylor's house...and sadly Taylor was on a trip with her baby girl...she has an adorable blog, visit it here! We miss hanging out with them!

Friday - October 7, 2011

We first visited our friends' Nick & Janna to see their newborn baby girl Brynlee and of course them :) Brynlee was 4 days old when we met her and is such a gorgeous girl!

Me, Brynlee, Kevin
Then we ate lunch at Gloria's Little Italy with Dane Nielson, Wes & Christen Guenther, & Chris Capper, all the guys were from Kevin's BYU Baseball team...if you have never eaten there I highly recommend it! The owners Mauro and Gloria are from Pisa so the food is authentic. Kevin used to work there :)

Then Kevin and I hung out in Provo doing some random things...
one being...
purchasing my first wedding band from Wilson Diamonds (love that place)!!!
It is currently en route being shipped...should get it within a few days!
I. cannot. wait!
It is gorgeous!!!

Then I picked up cute little Rachel and we headed off to the Utah Blogger Meet Up!
I will post about this later :) It deserves a separate post! All I will say is that it.was.a.BLAST!

Then I headed off to Cedar Hills for Bryce & Natalie Merrill's wedding PREception! They had their wedding preception -a day early- at the Bangerter household. Heard of the Bangerter highway? Yep, related much! Anyways, it was gorgeous and they had amazing food, some of my favorites being fresh mozzarella and baby tomatoes, little smokies, and red velvet cupcakes. The cupcakes they had catered were to die for!
Gorgeous Natalie & Bryce 
Bryce was one of Kevin's groomsmen and his roommate for the first two years at BYU
Aren't they adorable?
What a fun, busy day in Utah! More to come tomorrow! :)
