helloooooo, utah!


i had the loveliest afternoon. yup, the loveliest. there, i said it.

the gorgeous emily of la vie en rose treated me to gelato on provo's center street (we both had pecan) and then took me on a walking tour. she pointed out the best places for mexican food and milkshakes (diego's and sammy's {separate stops}).

i had so much fun and laughed and laughed and instantly i felt a little more at home.

oh, did i mention that when she came to pick me up she brought me a jar of jam? a jar of my very own. for the fridge. and yes, it's homemade. swoon. and yes, i've already had some on toast. and yes, perfection, it was.



thank you emily for giving me such a gorgeous welcome. (and for being patient enough to post for the obligatory picture-taking session). i can't wait to do it again!





ps: camilla of champagne bubbles posted this and it came as such a surprise. it kinda made my month. actually, no kinda about it, it did. it made my month. especially because i want to claim camilla as a real-life friend, desperately.

You have got to get to Sammy's, and Rice King (also on Center Street) for their Szechwan tofu. Glad you're here for the prettiest part of Utah summer!

VERY cute!

Joel said...

Great pics, but it is what we expect. You do deliver. So happy you got your own jam! The other jams in the fridge will be jealous, right?

Belen said...

i honestly think you have one of the prettiest smiles. i think it's also because of your eyes and how they're what my mom calls "smiling eyes" and how they compliment your actual smile. you're so pretty, meg! :D

homemade jam! nom nom nom!

Nostalgia said...

It's wonderful to see you so happy!

Also, Sammy's is such an adorable place with incredible inventive milkshakes! I meant to tell you that earlier - glad you know about it now. My husband and I just stumbled upon that place on our road trip last summer.

p.s. don't listen to anyone. go to STANS in provo if you want the best burger ever. Sammy's is good, yes, but Stan's is better.

I lived in Provo for about a year and a half while my husband finished up school. We had our last meal at Diegos--that's how much we love that place! And Gelato on Center street! And Sammy's! I'm in two of the Polaroids on the wall...not that it means much as there are a million. :)
Have a great time!

Jacob said...

sounds like fun-- love homemade jam-

brown eyed girl said...

Ooh what's this gelato place called? There was one on Center called Maestro's, but I thought it closed down...

I'll have to check this new place out sometime :)

Darling friend Meg!

Awwww. This totally makes my day! I had SUCH a wonderful time! You are one of those great people who it's just comfortable to be around. SO glad you enjoyed the jam! And Naomi is right, I totally forgot about Stans. It's DELISH! I LOVE the fries. We will have to hit that one up! I will come down again soon (this weekend I think) and maybe we could meet up and play for a bit during the big Provo festivities! and you can meet the husband! :) Let me know if you are interested. lots of xxx's and ooo's
