Wednesday, June 22, 2011Wednesday: awesomeness plus giveaways at 10:16 AM
It Wednesday and the birds are a chirpin', the kiddos jumping on her bed and some how my house is not a disaster after leaving the boy and girl child unattended last night. yeah, its gunna be a good day.
So where did i go last night? Oh, only on an adventure of EPIC proportions! A last minute decision sent me and my good pal Chelsi on a little drive to SLC to a yelp event....or so we thought. Little ride PSSHHH that's for squares! Little did we know we were going on a friggin ROAD TRIP! We zigzagged up a canyon, backtracked because we almost ran out of gas, went back into the canyon, looked a moose square in the eyes and terrified him, saw Bambi. Finally, We made it to the Sun and moon cafe in emigration canyon unharmed. We got there late of course ( well worth staring a moose in the eyes) but still got to hang out with some nice foodies, try some yummy appetizers, hear some grade A blues and try some EPIC beer. No really its called EPIC beer and it is...EPIC. Best of all it was all FREE!
Some say being late to an even and missing all the food and not winning the raffle and driving for EVER wouldn't be worth but we say NAY ( yeah we do because were old school like that) adventures are always fun with a friend. When you are in a car for what seems like days , lost in a canyon on an empty gas tank you get to bond; you open up your heart and soul and on the ride home you get stop in in and out burger for a milkshake. True story.
