Sweet visits in Orem

Yesterday Brooks and I spent the day visiting some of my favorite ladies :)

First we went to see Kersie (old college roommate) who is here visiting in Utah. It was a super short visit, but oh-so sweet!! I love that girl. And I love that we enjoyed a frapp and hot cocoa together.
Starbucks goodness + Kersie = a sweet morning indeed :)
Then we went down to Orem to spend the afternoon with my girl Makinzie!! She's one of my very best friends from my teenage years in Washington. And oh, we're both pregnant with little babes due in March and April (and so is our other bff, we miss you Shay!)! How awesome is that!? We first went out to lunch, and my prego-ness thought Zupa's sounded good...but once we walked in, Kinzie and I laughed because the smell some how made us both lose our appetite (or it may have just been me;). So we decided on JCW's, and it totally hit the spot! We took our lunches to the park for Brooks to run around and play...but the fact that it was freezing, and Brooks kept needing me to help him get up to the top of the swirly slide, made enjoying our lunches a little difficult ;) So we headed back to her place for Brooks to enjoy a little bit of Tangled and we visited some more. I can't wait for our next get together!!...a girl's night full of Netflix and junk food :)
And we ended the day with visiting my sweet Grandma Smith :) She is an absolute treasure!! I really need to get down to visit her more often...she is the most thoughtful person, asking me a million questions about how my family and I are doing, and listening so intently to everything I had to share. And she was so patient with Brooks who was at the end of his rope with all the car seat time he had that day. We both had a few laughs after Brooks put on her tennis shoes and tromped around the living room :) That's the only picture I got of our visit...but I plan to visit again soon, and get many more :)
Each visit with those 3 lovely ladies just seemed too short!! Love them all...and I am determined to make a better effort to see (video chat in Kersie's case;) them more often!

Aw what a fun day with good friends and family. Oh JCW's has my heart, sometimes I got to Utah County just for that.

What a FUN day! And now I'm craving JCW's :) I love that place... their fries and ice cream hit the spot every time!

I have been thinking...we should see about doing some sort of a blogger meetup. I always seem to miss the ones in Utah so if you catch wind of one let me know!!!

That's so exciting that you got to visit with your grandma and some of your old friends!--and that they all live relatively close! And how funny that the smell inside Zupa's turned you off--at least yours is a restaurant, when I was preggo with Jude sometimes I couldn't stand how Adam smelled--and he always smells so good! Poor guy ;) Haha and I love Brooks' face in that first picture in the background--what a sweet guy for coming along and being a trooper.

I can't believe you walked all the way into Zuppas and made it out without eating their delicious food! Can you tell I love that place? :)
I'm glad you were able to visit all these women who have influenced your life. And I love the pictures of Brooks. I know it hasn't even been a week, but I miss him, and you too OF COURSE!

YAY for 3 wonderful visits, with 3 lovely ladies!!

I can't believe you were able to pack all of this into one day....kudos to you! Sometimes I don't feel like Hudson and I can even get to the grocery store in one day. HA!

Brooks was such a little trooper...always smiling! & a good Disney flick is the best break time for little people, in my opinion. ;)

It warmed my heart 5 degrees seeing my name up there. You sure know how to make a girl feel special:-) We will have our own little meetup with Kinzie soon- we must! Maybe when we are all 9 months pregnant or shortly after we all have our babies! Love you- glad you had fun!

How did you and your pals all manage to get preggers at the same time? That's pretty neat! You know, you guys look like sisters...such is the case with best friends, I think.

PS. I don't know if I've mentioned this before..but Brooks looks like one of Gwen Stefani's kids.. Don't you think?
