I felt like royalty this weekend, even though those guys live it up much more than I did. It felt like we went on an amazing trip as opposed to the local mini vacation it really was.
For an early birthday present I surprised Matt with a night in a tower room at the Little America hotel in Salt Lake City and dinner in the Joseph Smith Building's awesome restaurant, The Roof.
It may be common for a lot of people, but this was a first for both Matt and I, we have never stayed in such a nice place in our lives so I really felt so fancy. I took a million pictures of chandeliers because they were everywhere. Prepare yourself.
We were on the 15th floor, Matt's scared of heights but I enjoyed the heck out of the view! We could see 2 cathedrals and part of the temple from up there.
We took some time to explore the hotel a little before we headed out on the town. We walked to see the cathedral looking government building with some awesome fountains. I've driven by so many times but never had the opportunity to get out and see it up close.
We walked into the center of the city to explore by foot while we waited for our 730 reservation to come around...
We walked through City Creek and Temple Square before we relaxed at the gorgeous Joseph Smith building to listen to the piano playing.
We found "the gold room" and Matt played something beautiful for me.
We headed up to the 10th floor, enjoyed the view and they had our table ready for us early.
The prime rib buffet was incredible and Matt and I resisted the amazing dessert bar, we are both down 7 lbs since we started our new healthy lifestyle two weeks ago. The food was perfect, and the view was better!
After dinner we walked back to our hotel, rested our feet, and relaxed without having to put a baby down! We did FaceTime Grant though, he was with my sister and her husband from 2pm- 11am and we are so grateful for them. THAT is in part 2.
