Playing My Wifey Role – Weekend Rewind

This past weekend was Nate’s company Christmas party.
The location was set for Salt Lake City, 
about 3 1/2 hours give or take away from our humble abode.
We were hesitant on going, even tho past company Christmas parties have been

Gas money.
Momma guilt of leaving the girls.
Blah, blah, blah.

In the end, it all came together so perfect.
Both our parents offered to watch the girls,
and the company footed the bill on lodging.
#thankyou #roadtripbaby
Apparently a weekend sprout-less = the following:

Playing Name that Tune.
#toomuchfun #oldskooltunes
#singit #youknowyouwantto

I was a baby too cold to get out during one of our stops, and my amazeballs husband brought me back fuzzy socks and peppermint yogurt. #suchakeeper #loveyou

Really playing up my “wifey” role.
It’s so wonderful to just focus on us.
Even tho 98.9% of our conversations are about M&M, it’s still nice to just be together.
Love this. And so does Nate. #winwin

Eating. Lots and lots of eating. All.weekend.long.
Like we hadn’t eaten in years. #oy
PTL for giftcards! #thankyou

Having ESPN on instead of Sprout Channel
and witnessing the Badgers win to go on to the Rose Bowl! #wootwoot

Being able to watch a Packer game from beginning to end. Period. #thisisHUGEforme
Since SLC didn’t have THE GAME playing on regular TV #wtf
we went to a restaurant to watch. We ended up with prime seats #score
It was perfect!
And the W.I.N.?
Yeah that was pretty amazeballs too! #Packerfanforlife

1st time this season Christmas shopping!
#again #giftcards #whoohoo
Love Target and their festive decor! #bestillmyheart
Saving the best for last.
If you follow me on Instagram ya’ll know this news already, but it’s too good not to share!
Starting off when we went to pick up our rental car there was a problem with the first car they gave us.
So when we returned it, they upgraded us.
Sad no pic of the Infinity we got #bloggerfail but the pic below says a thousand words. #ohsocomfy

Then… when we went to check into our hotel room the first night we were greeted with,
“I’m sorry Sir, we gave away your room…
Is it ok if we put you in a suite with hot tub & balcony instead?”

A weekend full of memories.…… gooooood to play my wifey role 100%.
Not only does Nate deserve it, but me and the girl’s do too!

Oh yeah.
The Christmas party I mentioned above.
We squeezed that into our weekend of fun too!
But what happens in SLC stays in SLC.
Or something like that.
Hope your week has started off fab!
