Last Summer Weekend

School starts on Monday and I am so not ready. I bought some supplies a few weeks ago but I haven't gotten books, I don't have paper or pens or pencils, and I can't even remember what my class schedule is. I will look it up tomorrow and figure out where all my classes are. Luckily though Race and I will be spending one week in school and then we will be heading to Lake Powell for our anniversary weekend! And all of you will be lucky to have three guest posters on my blog! They will be my first ever guest posters so GET EXCITED!! :]

Anyway, this weekend Race and I headed down to his parents' house with his sister and cousin. It's been a wonderful, relaxing weekend. We got to his parents' house around 10 PM last night and stayed up chatting and then today we headed out to Lake Patagonia. We spent the day in the sun swimming, tanning, kayaking, reading, talking, and eating. It was a nice day {just a little hot} and I loved hanging out with Race's family and relaxing. It has been the perfect way to end the summer.

On the way back to his parents' house we stopped at a restaraunt called Velvet Elvis Pizza Company and had DELICIOUS pizza. We got one called Chicken Saltimbocca which had Herbed Cheese, White Sauce, Roasted Chicken, Prosciutto di Parma, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Gorgonzola, Asiago, and Mozzarella. How amazing does that sound?! It was super delicious and we downed it super fast.

Anyway, that was our wonderful day and we will be heading home sometime tomorrow. However we will be stopping to see more family in the valley. And then we have to get everything ready for the first day of school. I will be setting out first-day-of-school outfits Sunday night and we will be taking pictures Monday morning. We will look cute. :] It is our last day of least for our Bachelor's degrees. So that's exciting!

Enjoy your Sundays everyone!

This is Lake Patagonia:


Apparently I also got sunburned. I didn't even notice it but then RaceFace pointed it out. And then he so nicely slathered me up with Aloe Vera. Good stuff. :)


  1. sounds like a fun little weekend (: I love lake powell! we have a houseboat there and its my favorite part about summer. I'm sure you will have a blast!

  2. My family used to go to Lake Patagonia! Whenever I mention that place no one else's ever heard of it... that's why I got excited haha.

  4. That pizza sounds divine! Have fun at the lake :) I can't wait to hear about your adventures! And good luck on the first day of school!

  5. Holy moly! Ha, sunburns are so random sometimes...
    I don't really feel 'em either, but giiirl yours is a straight up LINE.. I guess I get sunburns that have more fade-y lines than that!

    Also, I'm jealous of your lake trips.
