Skip To The Good Part

This post is a recap of the past week, please excuse the picture quality-- all photos were taken on my phone, and I am sure the camera had nasty fingerprints on it all week!!
Riley drove into Provo on Monday all the way from North Carolina; that's a 36 hour drive y'all!
I was so excited to see him. It was my first day of work and I didn't get off til 9. 
I didn't think he was going to get into town until about ten o'clock, but he actually got in at six. SNEAKY!
He went to my house and got Lauren's help setting up a plan...
He walks into Jos. A. Bank at 8:15 and leaves a note for me. 
It was an invitation to meet him at The Happy Sumo for dinner after I got off work. 
As he was walking out my manager figured out who Riley was (since work was slow and I talked about him) and he let me leave early. 
Riley had a dozen red roses in his truck; he had planned to wait for me to meet him at the restaurant.
We ate some delicious sushi!
On Tuesday we went to Ogden to play with CapriLee and Hayze.
This girl is the sassiest! She wanted to eat at Costa Vida, so we all went to lunch together.
 On Wednesday morning I cut Riley's hair and then we bought some sunscreen and snacks and went to Seven Peaks. They almost didn't let me in with my cheez-its, but then the guy said "Oh, you must be hypoglycemic, have fun!" I didn't ask questions...
We rented a tube and did all of the slides; Riley's favorite was the one that he rode backwards--should have seen his face.. he thought he was dropping to his death! It was a lot of fun. 
We headed to Salt Lake for the He Is We concert and ate at The Cheesecake Factory first.
The menu was literally a textbook, so with a little guidance from our waiter we got some delicious food. 
Riley couldn't get enough of the bread, but I think he liked the butter more.
I ate about a quarter of my meal and then Riley ate some of it, but I ate all the mushrooms off of his plate. SO GOOD! Thank you aunt Jenny for my love of mushrooms :]
We were too full to eat dessert so we got a slice of red velvet cheesecake to go. 
We finally got to the concert after I got us lost and we went two miles in the wrong direction.

South Jordan, the second band that played was awesome! They were so entertaining
Here is one of their songs
The third band should have quit before they played their first song. It was terrible, but it got everyone even more excited for He Is We.
Turns out the lead singer for He Is We is sick.. so this girl filled in for he and did a really good job.
Just kinda strange that the lead singer wasn't there. It's like going to a Taylor Swift concert and they are like- "O, hey, Taylor isn't here but this girl is gonna sing her songs".. strange

Fun- We Are Young & All About US
I thought Riley just brought me to the concert because I love He Is We so much, but he was singing along to  half of the songs that they played. It was so much fun! I think we were the only college kids there. So many high school mullets. It was entertaining to say the least.. 
On Wednesday we ate red velvet cheesecake for lunch.. oh yeah, and some of the leftovers too ;]
Best cheesecake of my life. I ate all of the cream cheese icing off the top!
I don't know how three days went by so fast, but I had so much fun!
ps- The concert was two days ago and my ears are still ringing!


  1. I am so jealous you saw He Is We! That boy sounds awfully fun & caring ;) P.S. Red velvet cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory is the most delicious invention ever created.

  2. Jordan, it was so much fun! I want to do it all over again. This boy is the best--too bad he had to go back to California. That cheesecake was the bomb- I literally ate the last bite of it like ten minutes ago, haha! I hope all is well in Oklahoma. you should send me some of your music if you have any.
