So it's no secret that Devin and I enjoy a great meal. Love of food is something we have always had in common. As of late there are a couple of restaurants that make my tummy happier than the rest: Goodwood BBQ and Tarahumara. Of coarse Goodwood, who doesn't love that place!! Delicious meat and amazing side dishes...can't go wrong there. We came across Tarahumara because Devin read Born to Run. It talks about the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico. Devin loved the book so of coarse we had to try the restaurant. It is in Midway, so a little bit of a drive, but worth every mile it takes to get there.

What's even better is when you get to share great food with great people. I always love an excuse to eat out and what better excuse is there then getting together with friends. And I have to say, I have been blessed with the BEST friends anyone could ask for and I love every chance we get to spend time together. I consider myself very lucky!

I love when Devin is with his brothers and his inner 13 year old self emerges.
Typical activities for when the Gagon boys get together include: Nerf gun wars, keep away on the stairs, video games, blowing things up with fireworks, shooting their bee bee guns, playing with their remote control cars and the list goes on...

But of coarse it makes me smile every time.

I feel like people usually have a love or hate relationship with Las Vegas.
Most people I have talked to either going to Vegas or avoid it like the black plague. I have always been quite fond of it. It is a very nice change of pace from good ole Provo Utah. ....however..... This week I was not loving Vegas so much. Devin had the luxury of going there for work, which left me home...alone! I'm not going to lie I am a scaredy cat. Over the last (almost) 4 years of being married to that kid I have only had to spend the night away from him a few times. I am not ashamed to admit that on those rare occasions I slept at my moms house. Well I decided to be brave this week. I avoided every knock that came to our door and probably double our electricity bill becuase I had everylight on at all times but I did it, and am quiet proud of myself! :)
Working hard......
