Local Book Christmas Party: Part 2

My company festivities were contained to Friday night, but we had the chance to stay in St. George Saturday night as well. I was super excited for a whole weekend away. I just love going on trips even if it's just a few hours south.  It's just nice to mix it up once and a while. 

On Saturday morning we slept in and then headed to breakfast at The Egg and I. I was craving eggs benedict like no other and these guys have like 7 different kinds of eggs benedict, so I knew we had to go. There are Egg and I locations in several different states but this is the only one in Utah. If you happen to visit St. George you have to go here! It was so, so delicious. Erik  said it was the best breakfast he had ever eaten. Our waitress suggested he get the Pineapple Coconut Pancake and it was AMAZING. Instead of syrup they give you a vanilla cream sauce, and wow, there are really no words. Just please, go and try it for yourself. 

Oh and another bonus...the pancake is basically the size of your head. That's my eggs benedict in the background which was also de-lish. 

After cleaning up a bit and recovering from our food coma we went to the St. George Temple. I have seen this temple so many times from the highway but I have never been up close or gone inside, so I was pretty excited. 

 I love going to the temple. It is definitely a piece of heaven on earth. And for anyone not of our faith, if  you'd like to learn more about why we build temples you can go here

After the temple we did a little bit of Christmas shopping and had dinner at Panda Express (Erik's choice...that boy just loves Panda). And because we are 22/25 going on 50 we went back to the hotel at 7:30 and I was totally conked out by 9. That's just how we roll. 

On Sunday we took full advantage of the free hotel breakfast and then packed up the car and headed home. I definitely had what Erik calls "End of Vacation Blues." Even though it was only a two day vacation it was still hard to come back to real life (first world problems I know). But lucky for us Christmas vacation is only 2 weeks away and I cannot wait!

Am I the only one who comments on this thing any more? I may not blog anymore, but I at least understand the importance of leaving comments!

Anyway, Anne's conked out upstairs. She has to fire someone tomorrow and is not looking forward to it. Hopefully the girl she's going to fire doesn't read your blog. That would be awkward.

Congratulations on eating eggs benedict. That is all.

Michael I think you are the only one that comments which probably means you're the only one who reads my blog besides my mom, lol.

Also Michael...why don't you blog anymore? You really should start up again. I always love your blog!

Dan and I visited the St. George temple for the first time last summer (in 2010 we visited all 13 then-operating temples in Utah. what fun it was!) and went again this past summer. It's a wonderful temple to visit! I'm glad you got to go there too.
