Here in Utah, we get three extra holidays per year. One is the 24th of July, which is the celebration of the day that pioneers arrived in the valley in 1847. And the other two are known as LDS General Conference. On the first weekends in April and October, it seems like the whole state shuts down as members of the Mormon faith tune into a conference from the leaders of the church for two days straight. But, when your husband works in a restaurant on Temple Square (where the conference takes place), it’s the opposite of a holiday. It’s actually two of the busiest weekend of the year at The Roof Restaurant, as thousands of people flock downtown to attend General Conference in person.
Press sample: I was given a free meal at Oregano Italian Kitchen in exchange for my honest review. Of course, all opinions are my own.
Another week, another date night – but not really because it seems like Colby and I have to work super hard to fit a date night into our schedules. He usually has one or two nights off a week, but we also try to fit in time with friends and family when we can, along with the random errands we have to run and our other commitments, like soccer teams or church activities. With all of that going on, we only had time for one official date night this whole past month.
We started our night with a FIFA 15 tournament. Both Colby and I love soccer and for the most part, we actually enjoy playing video games together. But when it comes to FIFA, I don’t always love playing with Colby, because he’s so good at it. I can maybe win against him in one out of every 20 games we play.
This time, though, I totally won! I grabbed my puppy and spun her around the room in celebration. Both Amaya and Colby were a little taken off guard. But I won! It was definitely a good start to date night.
First things first: how do you like my new blog? I have been working on this for a few months and finally decided this weekend was as good as any to make the switch. Hope you’ll keep sticking around.
On Thursday, Colby and I went out on what seemed like the first real date we had been on in a while. We’ve been spending every Tuesday and Thursday night together during the slow season at his job, but it seems like we have always had stuff to do – soccer practice, taking Amaya to puppy playtime, get-togethers with friends.
We set a goal to start going to a new restaurant once or twice every month, so we decided to start on Thursday. Before we went to eat, though, I wanted to surprise Colby by taking him somewhere he hadn’t been before. He always talks about wanting to find a butcher to buy meat from instead of the grocery store, so as soon as I heard about Tony Caputo’s, I knew I had to take him.
