Happy Monday! We wanted to share our weekend highlights with you. What was your weekend like?
Adam and I went on a little motorcycle ride on Friday night. It was perfect because it was starting to cool down so we weren’t too hot on the bike. I love going on these summertime rides. Going on the freeways scare me a little but Adam is really good at watching out for other cars in case they aren’t paying attention.
I stayed up late that night finishing up my first attempt at a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream from Cake by Courtney. The picture may make it look crooked but it’s not. I’ll do another post about it later after I’ve made it again. I definitely need some practice so don’t judge my skills too hard! I’m baking my niece and nephew’s cake for their birthday so this was a run-through. Baking cakes may be my new hobby, it was pretty fun.
Saturday morning was spent doing yard work. I have to wake up early before it’s too hot otherwise you won’t catch me working outside. Heat is not my friend unless it’s by the pool.
That afternoon, we went on a ride in the Teryx. We are lucky enough to be storing my in-laws’ Teryx for them and lucky enough that we just have to go up the street from our house and we are on a dirt trail. I have Adam drive the whole time because I like to go faster but I know if I drive, I will be too much of a chicken and be afraid of crashing.
Sunday was spent cleaning up my house to prepare to go out of town this week. Adam has a work conference this week in Minnesota and I get to tag along! I went last year so I’m excited to go back again. I’ll make sure and do a post about it when I get back.
This weekend was busy but so fun!
On Saturday, my friends and I volunteered at the Care Fair hosted by the Junior League of Salt Lake. The Care Fair is an annual event where they provide all kinds of medical care to those that are uninsured or can’t afford medical services. We volunteered as interpreters since we all speak Spanish. This is my second time volunteering with them and it’s honestly so rewarding to use your Spanish for something as important as this. They are always so grateful for your help.
We’re all really excited because we’re planning on joining the Junior League this year so we can keep helping out and volunteer with them. There are Junior Leagues all over the country and it’s a women’s only group so if you want to help out in your community, check out their website here. They’re an amazing organization!
On Sunday, my mom, sister and I went to the Phantom of the Opera musical at the Eccles Theater in Salt Lake. First off, gorgeous building! It was the first time we had gone since it was built and it’s absolutely beautiful. Phantom is my sister’s favorite musical ever so it was fun to get to see it live. They did such a great job! It made me want to keep watching musicals.
I’m on the left, my mom in the middle, and my sister on the right. Aren’t they the cutest human beings ever? We had so much fun. Then Sunday night, my boyfriend came home from being in Vegas all weekend so we stayed in and watched a movie together.
What did you do this weekend??
