Mr. & Mrs. Garcia

On Saturday one of my old roommates roommates was getting married in the Salt Lake temple, so Caitlin and I decided to go up and hang out with some of our old Rexburg friends. We realized as we were hanging out with them that we don't really have any friends that we hang out with (sad face) although we do have people over for dinner every once in a while, we don't really have fun couple friends that we get together with or make plans with. New goal: make friends with a couple in our ward. We've started scoping out who could possibly be our friend and we've narrowed it down to a few of the other primary workers. Hopefully they're ok with us forcing them to befriend us. :) 

Anyway, back to the weekend. We met up with Bryce, Ben, Emma, and Laura at temple square and went over to the new City Creek Center. It was unbelievably crowded so we didn't spend a whole lot of time navigating the shopping center, but Caitlin and I definitely want to go back so we can enjoy it a bit more. Instead we watched the fountains and just talked for a long time. Then Andrea (Caitlin's friend from SD) came to meet up with us and the Rexburgians left to go take a nap or do something more exciting, we never really asked what they ended up doing. 

With Andrea we decided to go to the other mall just down the street in SLC to grab some dinner. There were plenty of restaurants at City Creek but we didn't want to have to wait forever to get our food. So we went to the California Pizza Kitchen which was great. It was a lot of fun talking to Andrea - she tells the greatest stories. We also went and bought some new clothes so we could crash Brian Garcia's wedding reception. Andrea didn't come with us to that, but we were able to meet up with our Rexburg friends again.

We had such a great time and kind of wished we were in Rexburg again. But we're happy to be in Provo and act like grown-ups for the time being. 


  1. It's called dating. You date other married couples, see if you like the other couple. Sounds funny, but that's what Scott and I call it. If I like the girl, Scott likes the guy, then we can be friends. It doesn't work if only I like the girl and Scott doesn't like the boy or visa versa. HA!

  2. That is so perfect! I'm going to have to run that past Caitlin! You guys are genius!
