After winning this on Ebay yesterday!
Yes, yes, yes. I know I live in Florida. But I’ve been lusting for a mink coat ever since when we went skiing in salt Lake City in February.
Dr. B just looked at me and said, “I hope you like it.” LOL!
Salt Lake City has a reputation as being a strict no-frills city due to it’s Mormon roots. Much to my delight SLC was filled with friendly people who are very proud of their city and it’s “unique” history. But, they are also very funny and can see the humor in their history and they aren’t afraid to say so. Just check out these cute t-shirts I spotted during our trip!
Have you spotted a crazy tourist t-shirt?

This was my first time tubing, and it was more fun than I expected. Have you ever been tubing, did you like it?
- Day Three in SLC (natashawilliams.wordpress.com)
Today is our third day I’m Salt Lake City, Utah. Thus far, It’s been a very memorable trip. Friday evening we went to a burlesque show. Yep! It was old-fashion burlesque, Utah style ! The show was put on by The Candy Cabinet Cabaret, and held in a live entertainment venue called the Woodshed(need I say more). My favorite performance was the 60-ish woman performing a burlesque belly dance – she had 3 stomachs, but she had a lot of rhythm, and some great moves.
Saturday we headed up to Brighton Ski Resort for ski lessons. The weather was beautiful. It was 40 degrees, and sunny on the mountain, which made for perfect skiing weather. My biggest fear was that I would be soo cold and miserable that I would hate skiing. But, I had on several layers underneath my ski clothes and the sun was shining bright – so I was able to enjoy the lessons without being cold. OMG, the lessons were soo much fun. I really enjoyed learning how to ski. It’s a lot of hard work, I didn’t realize the ski boot wear a ton. By the end of the lesson, I was able to take the ski lift up to the beginners slope, and go down the hill while completing a few turns on the way down! After our lesson, Dr. B and I stayed a Brighton for a few more hours and continued to practice what we learned.
Today were going up to Park City, Utah which is where the Sundance Film Festival is held, and where the 2002 Winter Olympics took place. Were going to find a nice restaurant for breakfast, tour the city, and then go tubing at Gorgoza Park with a few friends. I’ve heard soo much about Park City’s restaurants, shops, and cultural centers, so I’m really looking forward to today’s excursion.
