When you come back from a trip everyone asks THE question.
"What did you do?"
I got a lot of those after this weekend.
A few of my old roommates and I rented a cabin and took a weekend retreat all by ourselves. Five of us were supposed to come, and three made it. Jackie and Eliza you were missed.
So, what did we do? Nothing, really, and that's the reason it was so great. We had no agenda, no expectations, no plans... it was a fabulous vacation.
We met up Thursday afternoon and unloaded our stuff at the cabin in Wolf Creek, Ut. Then we headed into Ogden and ate at Olive Garden. We hit the Old Navy and Ross across the parking lot and then went home. We stayed up late talking and slept in late too.
Friday morning we sat in the hot tub, went to the gym, and played a few rousing rounds of racquet ball. We took showers and had lunch at 2:30. Then we watched mindless shows like "Top 20 fashion don'ts" and "The Simple Life". We wandered the mall for at least 5 hours browsing endlessly in stores where we didn't have strollers to maneuver around and children to convince that it would only be 5 more minutes. We rented a movie and made dinner at 11:00 pm - in true college fashion.
The next day we got up early had breakfast, and went to do a session at the Salt Lake Temple, and then we parted ways.
So all in all there isn't much to tell. It was fun just being able to relax, reconnect, and reminisce about old friends, FHE brothers/sisters, crushes and see how our lives (and everyone elses') seemed to turn out different than we thought.
We just took a break from reality, from the hectic pace of everyday life- and that was all the fun I needed.
