Dear Blog,

I'm awfully sorry that I've neglected you lately but I've had a busy couple of weeks. You see, Kenny and I try to take a trip each year without the kiddos and while we didn't have the time to head to Virginia like last year (my favorite place to be in the Fall), we did find a way to escape for a quick weekend to Denver, Colorado. Where the Chargers were playing. Of course. The deal was that if I went to the game with Kenny, the rest of the trip would be 'Erin' style. This meant lots of Christmas shopping, eating out, exploring the city, and ... being the first in line to see "New Moon." And that's just what we did.

The game ended up being really fun. Because the Chargers won. And we were surrounded by Broncos fans. And they didn't like us much. But we didn't care. Because we won. And we were wearing huge parkas that we borrowed from my parents. Because we don't own parkas. And we were freezing cold. Even though underneath our parkas we were wearing four layers of clothes. But the game was still really fun. Because the Chargers won. And Kenny was so happy. Which always makes me happy too.

While in Denver we also mingled with strange Broncos fans.

And ate breakfast everyday at The Delectable Egg. I would eat there every morning for the rest of my life if I could. And I don't even love eggs. But their Belgian waffles were amazing.

Then it was back to Southern Utah to spend Thanksgiving with our families where we had a wonderful holiday with loved ones and enjoyed eating lots of yummy turkey. Speaking of eating, dear blog of mine, that is another reason I haven't posted lately. I've been way too busy eating. Recently eating has become quite a priority for me, and I'm all about priorities. I seemed to have timed this whole second trimester during the holidays thing just right. I am hungry all the time and lucky for me, there seems to be delicious food around all the time. The other night I had downed a whole burrito and was starting on someone else's leftovers when Kenny called from the couch "come here babe...I want to cuddle with you for a minute." I know what he really meant was "C'mon babe. Put down the fork and step away from the kitchen. Slowly now...you can do it..."

It's all good. I am full of gratitude and plump and happy. And hope that after this weekend the rest of you feel the same.

So glad you are back! I was really missing you! Glad you guys had such a fun trip and a great Thanksgiving weekend. AND SO GLAD I got to see you at the temple! Seriously, made my day! What a plus to find 2 of my very favorite people in the world there! Definitely in the right place at the right time. And you look absolutely darling! So I say- enjoy all that yummy food all month long! That is a great perk of a spring baby, feeling good during the Holidays, and the food has never tasted better! Can't wait to see you guys soon! (and discuss New Moon of course!)

HEY... I thought of you this weekend in Vegas. I went in Motherhood Maternity (to get good vibes so I can get pregnant, yes, there was chanting) and there were maternity Charger t-shirts!!! They were so cute and I'm not even a sports fan. Simple, but cute.... thought of you!!!!

Your trip went by too fast. I can't believe it's back to reality so soon (not that I even have anything to do, but whatever.) Only 4 more weeks and then it's time to party some more! I'll work on finding a fun game we all can play.

So glad you're back! Looks like you had a great time as usual. Love that you and Kenny were able to get away.:)

Oh goodness, I can also relate with the food cravings and always being hungry. But I'm not even pregnant, so talking me "off the fork" is pretty necessary right now. :) Glad you had a great "babymoon"!

Sounds like you had a fun trip. Steve always says that's one of the best things we can do for our kids is a getaway together! We enjoyed St. George over Thanksgiving as well. We love it down there.

How fun for the two of you to get away. I'm jealous!

Mark has been bugging me to go to Denver and I said, "What's in Denver?". Now I know...I'll go for the breakfast spot.

Would you live in Denver?? it looks fun and we've been debating whether to settle there. Too cold? Looks like fun places to eat. This yearly tradition of yours makes me a little jealous.
