Today I felt like I went back in time 3 or 4 years. I haven’t been shopping in years. Literally. The last time I can remember shopping for clothes was pre-mission, and even then, I was shopping for mission clothes. This morning, Greta and I went to the mall. We shopped Gap clearance and I got some new clothes for Chris and I. I got Chris a pair of shorts and two shirts and I got a jacket, a shirt and and cami. That’s six things for $50. I am not a coupon shopper, but shoot–I love a good Gap sale. After shopping, we (Greta and I) met Chris for lunch at Five Guys. Lots of people have told us that we have to try this place out and we are so glad we finally did. We LOVED it. The menu was so simple and easy to choose from and the burgers and fries were delicious. We’ll be repeat customers for sure. Chris and I haven’t met for lunch since we lived in Rexburg. It was such a treat.
But tonight was the real specialty. Matt stayed home with Greta while Chris and I went down to Provo where Chris played a show at Sammy’s Cafe with his friend, Cory Belliston. Chris and Cory have been playing together for years but Cory recently moved to California, so it has been a little while. While they were doing their sound check and practicing they both repeatedly said how much they missed playing together. Standing there, without my baby, surrounded by college students, watching a total hunk play his djembe– brought me back years. Chris is so hot when he drums. They did great.

It was a perfect beginning to a 10 day vacation together. *grin!*
