a week full of dates...

This last week has been a blast. It was Trevor's last week before moving to Vegas for his Summer Associate Position and we lived it up. Date night, every single night. I feel like we need to make this a new thing, although I don't think we could afford it, darn. One of our favorite dates is going to Nickel City, we did this before we were married a lot so every time we go it brings back such good memories. Trevor and I decided someday we want to fill our basement up with pinball machines and other awesome arcade games :)

don't mind my hair, I let it air dry... life of being platinum now haha
The whole week Trevor kept telling me I would need to get off work early on Thursday because he has a surprise for me. Now normally when Trevor says he has a "surprise" it means that he doesn't want to tell me what he wants to do because it is actually something I do NOT want to do and he doesn't want me to say no. So I was hesitant, and was thinking we were going to be spending the afternoon doing something lame. 

Well was I blown away when I found out it was zip-lining!!! I was so excited and surprised that the surprise was actually a GREAT surprise! I gave him a big hug and said that it was perfect, in which he responded, "I remember how much you liked zip-lining on our honeymoon, so I thought you would like to do it again." 

That boy. Let me tell you. Trevor is not the romantic type, he is not the sentimental type... so when he is, my heart pretty much bursts into a million pieces because it is something special.

We had a great day, zipping through the trees of Provo Canyon and getting a great view of the Provo River. It was a perfect afternoon :)

On Friday Trevor brought me lunch at work. Some just out of the smoker 5 Star BBQ, our new favorite place because of their Brisket and Alabama Sauce. It was just the pick me up I needed.

This last week has felt like a honeymoon or something! While I was upset saying goodbye to him this morning, I am looking forward to a summer full of more weeks spent like this last one. Where we live every day we have together to the fullest :)

This morning I made one of Trevor's favorite breakfasts before he hit the road. Cinnamon Roll Waffles and some bacon. On Instagram people were asking how to make these, let me let you in on a little secret. Buy the premade cinnamon rolls, pop them into your waffle maker... DONE. So simple, and so yummy :) Such a good breakfast idea when you don't have a lot of time!! Or dinner ;)

 Now head on over to the hilarious Helene In Between...



  1. Oh my gosh those cinammon bun waffles look DIVINE! I wish I wasn't gluten free or I would probably make them every single morning! I love your yellow shoes in the one photo, are they the new TOMS?

  2. oh my gosh i love this! next week, kendall and i are going on a "second honeymoon" to celebrate our anniversary/sealing. i've been feeling like we needed it to put some spark back in us! i think everyone needs that every once in a while. ;)

    1. I don't know what you would call it exactly, but it isn't too far once you get into the canyon. I believe you look it up you could find it right away, it is the only company that does it up there!! &yes, we should hang out soon for sure. Great Gatsby Night?

  9. FUN! I love zip lining so much, our favorite one is up in Whistler and we've done it quite a few times.
