|I love my job!|
We started out the evening by meeting up with our friends at The Pie Pizzeria by USU. If you like pizza, THIS. IS. THE. PLACE. Seriously. Go there. The only downside to this visit is that we got their later than them and they had already ordered and didn't get us a meat-lovers. Steven and I are meatys. We don't really ever eat any other kind of pizza. haha. Yum.
|Whoever it was that introduced us to this place, THANK YOU.|
|This is what I'm talkin' about!|
After dinner we headed to the hotel to check in, and then it became a choose your own adventure type of night. Austin, Shebby and Julianne decided to go hot tubbing, and Steven and I drove a few blocks over to the Gateway and saw Wreck-it Ralph!
It was such a fun way to spend the night. The theater was practically empty, so we had first choice on seats!
Before going into the movie we took advantage of some photo-ops in the hallway.
Say what you may, but we both really loved The Hobbit!
|I am excited about this movie. Also, please note my amazing hat.|
We loved Wreck-it Ralph! It was a fantastic family movie and will probably be added to our shelves when it comes out on video. We would recommend it to everyone!
The movie got our around 12:30, and much to our relief nothing in the world had ended when we walked out of the theater. It was a beautiful and peaceful Christmas evening. :)
In the morning we enjoyed a nice breakfast from the on-site breakfast Bistro. Even though it wasn't free, it was great to have the convenience of a nice breakfast right there in the lobby. Plus, when you're only spending $20.00 on a hotel room you can afford to have a little breakfast. ;)
Our friends had already checked out and headed off for some shopping and exploring at City Creek Center. We packed up and headed that way as well and even ran into them as we shopped. It was a surprisingly pleasant day, with temperatures in the high 40's! The weather was beautiful and the mall is exquisite. Steven had never been, so we enjoyed ogling all the shops.
|The City Creek Center mall is BEAUTIFUL.|
We only bought ended up buying things at Deseret Book and The Chocolate Factory, but we poked our heads into Tiffany's to peek at all of their sparklies. :D
Did I mention I own a set of Tiffany's crystal candlesticks? That's right, be jealous.
|The nanny family gave us a set of these for our wedding.|
