What a whirlwind!  Parker and I left cold New York, flew home for a total of 18 hours (just long enough to do a load of laundry and re-pack) and flew right back out to even colder Salt Lake City.  No, this cold is stupid.  Parker and I decided to walk to dinner last night, which was one mile away and about 3/4 of the way there I had to stop, duck inside a convenience store and buy crap we didn’t need just to buy some time inside.  But the place we went to dinner was so amazing – if you ever visit SLC, you have to go to Pallet.  The atmosphere and the interior design is that “rustic industrial with some hints of vintage” that is so hot right now and the food is unreal.  The gnoccci pillows are the best thing I’ve ever tasted.  Omg.

And this hotel we’re staying at is so rad.  I had a mini heart attack when we checked in and they lost our reservation, but they found us a room.  And a sweet room it is too!  afterglow (1)5fa953c064e511e2a2e222000a9e48a3_7

At night you go to dinner and maids sneak in to turn down your bed, fill the ice buckets, turn on soothing music and leave you fuzzy slippers to wear.  Phat!  I could get used to this.


I feel like such a celeb while walking around this hotel room in my fancy hotel bathrobe and fuzzy slippers.  Clearly I’m not used to the star treatment as I act like this when I’m alone:55f2be7264f211e299e522000a9e28c4_7

Alt Summit starts today (eeek!) but not until this afternoon with the Hello Social being held at West Elm and hosted by Lexy Ward from The Proper Pinwheel so until then Parker and I are going to keep ourselves busy by renting a car and driving out to Park City where Sundance is being held and try to brush elbows with real celebs.  Or just sight-see (more likely).  Then dinner being sponsored by MailChimp at some other amazing SLC restaurant I’m sure.  So excited!  Tomorrow the learning begins though which is what I’m most looking forward to.  That and meeting all the other bloggers that inspire me every day and make me crazy jealous of their creativity :)  This new life is starting out pretty great and I can’t wait to see what’s ahead.

Oh also – follow me on Instagram for more pics from the trip!
