so in love

Im so so so so in love with the weekend brad and i just had..well its not even over yet. I don't post that many pictures, but I'm going to today- and don't judge me because they are just plain and not amazing even though I have take 2 beginning photography classes.

So Thursday was our 4th year anniversary. We haven't ever really done anything for our anniversary because sure we could go pay money and stay in a hotel but it always seems like a waste because its too expensive to stay somewhere really nice. Well Brad took Friday off so we could do something together, but we really didn't have any idea where to go or what to do. We thought we might just go somewhere nice for dinner and then just stay at home. Well Brad found this package deal through the Hotel Park City, where you get to stay in a Cottage Suite and get a 3 course meal at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse for $349. We've heard that Ruth's Chris is AMAZZZING and the suite at the hotel sounded amazing as well so we thought we'd just go for it. It didn't look like there were any reservations so Brad called and they were like oh yeah we have some openings for that suite and its $289..so we were like SWEET, even cheaper than it said online. So we booked it and when the lady was reconfirming she was like oh- woops I am looking at an October date, but luckily there was still an opening for last night and since she already told us the October price, she gave it to us for that price. So we were so excited I wanted to puke because we were actually GOING SOMEWHERE and DOING SOMETHING FUN and yeah..it was just exciting.

So I can't even describe how amazing this place is and how private and cool and cozy and stuff these cool cottages are. They are away from the main hotel and surrounding the golf course. There are 9 cottages and they have 4 rooms - 6 rooms in them. Oh man- I love this place. So our room had a seperate bedroom behind nice thick wooden french doors, it had a huge tall king bed that was sooooo comfortable and a fireplace and a mounted flat screen tv. there were walls of windows and a door to the patio where our own private jacuzzi was. Down the hall there is a washer/dryer a closet that had our thick robes in them a bathroom with a jetted tub a glass surround shower with 3 shower heads and of course a little room with the toilet. The living room had a little kitchenette with a small fridge, a dishwasher, cupboards with nice dishes, etc. Then there were comfy leather couches a big fireplace with a big flat screen mounted above that. There was also a door off the living room that went out to the patio too. On the patio was like I said the 6 person jacuzzi and a fireplace. We were right on the golf course. It was just so nice and quiet and perfect. So we had planned to go shopping and stuff but when we got there we were like, yeah right- we don't want to leave this room. The only time we left was to go to dinner at Ruths Chris which was attached to the main hotel. So we went to dinner and I can't stop thinking about that steak. I want to eat it everyday. I have never had such an amazing piece of meat in. my. life. Nothing I've ever had even COMPARES! I loved it. So we each had a delicious salad to start off with and then we got our filets- oh my gosh. my mouth is literally watering thinking about it. Okay- let me get myself together here...so they season the steak with salt and pepper and sear it at 1800 degrees and then serve it on a 500 degree plate with bubbling steak butter. They use like the highest grade of steak and its like nothing else i've ever tasted. It was so incredible. And we got Potatoes AuGratin which were amazingly delicious as well. Then for dessert we got a chocolate lava explosion...amazing!! It was moist and rich and delicious. It was a cake thing with gnoche spilling out of it, ice cream on top and caramel drizzled on the sides. It was a perfect ending to a perfect meal.

Okay well anyway- all I have to say is...is this was worth EVERY SINGLE DANG PENNY and then some. Seriously- you should ALLLL Go!!! you won't regret it..but you won't want to come home. so just be aware.
