Where are we going?

Yesterday I told you Jon is surprising me with a trip and wasn't going to tell me where we were going until we got to the airport. He lied. He told me! Last night he called me upstairs and sat me down for a powerpoint on the TV. Jon is all about to powerpoints whether it is to convince me to do something or surprise me (he said he wanted to make sure  I was okay with some of the activities he planned). He is cute.


So wanna know where we are going?
 (this is his powerpoint)

 *each hint came up separately and I had to guess

 *I knew after the last hint that it was SLC! At first I thought it was Maine, since Jon has been there and LOVED it, and I haven't. I've been to SLC/PC twice, once a long time ago in the summer and once in college for skiing. But never together!


 *bummed that it is so hot but I think we'll spend most of our time in Park City, check out those lows!

And Jon has a full list of what we will be doing!
*we love hiking and being outdoors

And we love animals!




and I am most excited for...


I've never done either!! I am pumped! Jon and I have talked about doing it a few times but I honestly never thought we would. This weekend is going to be packed with adventure and my husband definitely planned ahead...


Jon rocks!


I think it's funny that I was so sure of where we were going but none of my guesses were right. Jon is pretty good at surprising me considering I am the cruise director around here. Honestly it kind of stresses me out planning a trip from start to finish and Jon has already done all of that! I messaged one of my girlfriends who hooked us up with tons of restaurant recs, we love finding local/hole in the wall places (we always check Diners, Drive Ins and Drives and Man Vs Food before traveling anywhere). And Jon said there are more surprises!

So friends, I am signing off for a few days. You're not gonna want to forget about me...Monday is August group giveaway day! Have a wonderful weekend.

Jen said...

Thats where I live!!! Park city is the best in the summer. I would probably not go to the great salt lake, its nothing special and it smells. Maybe I will run into you!

GingerPeachT said...

So how fun is your hubby?! You guys go on trips
Ike this alot? Or just lately? :-)
White water rafting is so much fun! Did it on my senior trip. Just have someone help you carry the raft. I was the tallest girl out of my group, and kinda walked with the raft resting on my head. Bad idea, the whole way down I could not move my neck in one direction. Lol but if I were not kinked in the neck it would have been amazing. ;-)

I’m stomping my feet as I type this.. “Lucky.. lucky .. lucky!!” I cant even imagine what it would be like to have my hubs plan a vacation let alone present it to me via power point! Lol it must be soo relaxing to know that you will just show up and enjoy it!

Lauren {at} Life.Love.Lauren said...

Daisy said...

Jessi said...

Oh my gosh, how cute is your husband for putting together a powerpoint presentation?? Sounds like you guys will have a blast. Enjoy your time away together and relax!!

kaity said...

I have to say, the fact that Jon put together a Powerpoint to present all of this to you just gained him, like, 10000 cool points. that husband of yours is a sweetie. :) hope you guys have an awesome time on your getaway! can't wait to see pictures.

Mrs Independent said...

Have so much fun! Jon is too cute for putting this together for you :)

Jennifer said...

Jon is so awesome! a power point?!

Lisamarie said...

Wow. What a funny guy with his power point! That's awesome for him to plan this trip for you. Are you guys mormon? I hadn't ever thought of Park Lake City as a vacation spot before. But I am so happy you are excited!

Kimberly said...

That sounds like so much fun!

Enjoy your weekend! I have friends in Utah and the way they speak of it, it definitely has to be an amazing place!

I was going to tell you if it was Boston, to make sure you go to the Aquarium. A little on the expensive side but SO worth it and only a few blocks from Quincy Market. So you can park once for the whole day and enjoy downtown Boston, which is seriously gorgeous.

Sydney said...

I live in Salt Lake and it's so fun! I would definitely avoid Antelope Island and the Great Salt Lake its not that impressive, it smells and there are a LOT of bugs! But for food you should check out Ruth's Diner, so good! Hope you enjoy your trip!

i'm JUST now learning how to do a power point.

and i actually didn't even do it.
my brother did it.
i still turned it in - and got an "A"

Sarah said...

Ruthie! I live in SLC and frequently visit Park City! I hope you love Utah as much as I do! Though it is filled with mormons there is so many amazing things about this place! Can't wait to hear all about your vacay recap! Enjoy!
