For Mother's Day all I wanted was a vacation.
You know...it's a been a rough few weeks.
Andrew came home Friday afternoon and said to me, "Honey, you need to pack a swimsuit and an overnight bag, because we are going on a little trip."
Sweeter words had never been spoken!
So we packed our bags and headed north to the glamorous city of Salt Lake.

We checked in and then headed off to dinner at my fav restaurant in Utah:
Have you been here? We discovered it on a trip to SLC last year and it's become a staple for all future vacations.
We sat at the counter and pretended we were judges on "Chopped".
|Fish and Chips|
|The Copper Onion burger complete with housemade pickles!|
We stopped by City Creek after dinner for some casual shopping.
|I found a few things that belonged in my closet|
Since our trip to Belgium last December we crave real french fries and only the best waffles.
Naturally this meant Andrew running over to Bruges Waffles and Frites for some dessert.
We were not disappointed!
Don't be fooled by how simple this looks...it is Divine.
Oh so good.
Our last stop was Les Madeleines, a Patisserie I've been begging to go to for months.
It was a little shop hidden in a corner and everything was delicious.
Andrew ordered the Turkey Club
I got the Sesame Chicken Salad in an egg roll wrap with Edamame.
I could eat this every day. It was so, so good.
Finally we ordered the Kouing-Aman Bread Pudding...
"The Best Thing I ever ate" show on Food Network came here to feature this dessert. No wonder.
Shout out to my sweet husband who made the weekend soooo nice. I feel rejuvenated and rested.
Being a mom is awesome. Especially when I get to come home to this cute little thing
