Yesterday I turned 23! I finally feel like a real person these days. We are moving out of Provo, I have a real job, and Steve will be applying to graduate school.
Steve did such a great job of planning my birthday this year. He told me on Sunday night when he picked me up from the airport that he reserved a room in Park City for the next night to celebrate my birthday! So Monday around 4:30, we decided to get a head start on our night. We went to La Jolla Groves at the Riverwoods mall for dinner. This place is beautiful and has amazing food! If you haven't been, you really need to try it out! We tried almost everything on the menu, because it was a "special occasion". After eating, we drove up the canyon to Park City and checked in at the hotel. We stayed at Newpark Resort and we LOVED our room. It was small, but super nice and had that Park City cabin-y feel.
I had to take a picture of the presents, because of the way Steve wrapped them. He knows me too well.
After we checked in, we turned the fireplace on and watched the Bachelorette. I know that may seem like a waste of time to some of you, but we don't have TV in our apartment at home. So watching the Bachelorette on a big screen TV instead of Hulu was a treat! After Bachelorette we decided to take a walk around the Hotel and then went on a drive around Park City to look at the nice homes in the area. The coolest/scariest experience of the night was seeing a mother and child moose walking around about 10 feet in front of us. The mother stared us in the eyes for a few minutes and we froze until she walked away.
The next morning, we checked out of the hotel and walked to Kneaders (because it was right next to our hotel) to celebrate my birthday right with some delicious french toast. Then, we went over the Park City Outlet Mall and did a little shopping.
I came home that day to some beautiful flowers from my parents.
Overall, it was one of my best birthdays yet!
