It’s InstaFriday!

It’s been a light week here on the blog…Lots of fun stuff going on.

I spent last weekend with some of my favorite girls – Amy, Jen, Shelley, Stacey, Char, Lara and Kendra – at a condo up at The Canyons for EVO.

The conference was phenomenal (as always) and I hope to post more about it later. Truly? Some of my favorite moments were the late night diet coke and sweet snack (read mini donuts and M&Ms) induced chats.

Love, love, love my friends.

Have any of these around your house? McDonalds toys. We’ve got a few, please, please leave a comment and tell me you do to. How often do you purge them? Amazingly, this time I walked out of the McDonald’s suite at EVO with not a single one (so proud of myself).

Toys aside, or maybe partially because of them, McDonald’s had the BEST suite at EVO this year…A serious stream of fruity parfaits and lip smackin smoothies. I SOOO enjoyed my time hanging with the McDonald’s girls.

Amy, Jen and Mandi got in on the action as well and we all hopped in a photo with Ronald. Don’t look now, but just over my right shoulder it appears that Ronald may be getting a little fresh with Amy, or maybe it’s the other way around. What do you think?

This snap came while hanging out with Kim (top left), Lara (top right), Char (far right), Me and Stacy (left). Aren’t our casual shoes fun? Side note: don’t mind my hobbit feet.

Speaking of shoes. I am thinking of getting a pair of Toms. Thoughts? Favorites? (No. I couldn’t care less that they are trendy. They can’t possibly be as bad as Crocs.)

I am never one to miss celebrating a holiday, especially if it has something to do with food. I took a short break at work to head over to the nearest sev to pick up this little Slurpee…You also get a sneak peak at where I spend most of my days – go transit!

Do you have a favorite Slurpee flavor? This blueberry limeade was pretty good.

Speaking of work…I’ve been spending a lot of time on a really cool blogger event (it’s tomorrow). We’re taking some of Utah’s social media professionals for a ride on UTA’s new Red Line.  They get to be the VERY first members of the general public to board and ride the trains that wont be open to the general public until August! Fun!

I insert this somewhat awful photo to let you know three things. First, I am not afraid to post ugly photos of myself online. Second, I love my bloggers so much I taste tested the blueberry taffy we’re giving them (generous, right?). Third, sometimes traffic out of my office is blocked by trains for a long time (imagine that).

I saw Amy wearing a beautiful ring (she’s got great taste) and had to have it. My beautiful Vintage Pearl ring finally arrived and I LOVE it!

Had to go on a lunchtime run to Sam’s Club today. I was in such a rush that I just stopped right there to eat lunch. Check out my cheap hotdog and berry ice cream. This meal was totally worth the $2!

True confession time. Who has had a hot dog at Sam’s Club or Costco?

As usual, I am linking up over at Life Rearranged for InstaFriday :)

Happy weekend peeps!

  1. I completely forgot about the 7.11 holiday. I love slurpees! Pina colada is my favorite but the lime is pretty good too.

    I love these pics!

    • Tauni says:

      Thanks Cindy. We really, really missed you last weekend. BUT, I am sure that gorgeous store is worth all of the love and labor you’re putting into it! I can’t wait to see the finished pics.


  3. Costco hot dog and diet coke???? Most definitely! Spoon cheap. :)

    • Tauni says:

      Hahaha. Elizabeth, I am feeling so much better knowing that beautiful people like you aren’t above a little Costco hot dog and Diet Coke now and then! I am so glad we are friends!


  4. Love you Tauni!! And for the record…Ronald is a teensy bit creepy! His hair dresser needs to tone down the red tint just a wee bit! Love you new ring! And…Costco hot dogs? Guilty!

    • Tauni says:

      LOL. I thought that Ronald was great with the kids, perhaps a wee bit creepy with the adults. Ah well. I can’t imagine it’s easy being dressed like a clown all day.

      I am so glad other “normal” people have downed the Costco hot dog. I was feeling a bit dirty.


  5. Ellie G says:

    Costco hot dogs! Guess who can down a WHOLE one? Nope, not me….my 4 year old! And then she has hot dog breath for like, 7 days after that. SICK!!! So sorry we missed today, my kids would have loved it. Hope it went okay. Still lovin’ that show pic. :)

    • Tauni says:


      Funny. Little H has decided he doesn’t like hot dogs. When I asked him why he said, “Duh. Don’t you know they make for nasty burps that you can’t keep inside.” Kids. They’re something else.

      I can’t wait to hear how your talk and everything goes…

    Love the pics. Those donuts look so yummy! Today was wonderful- so many great details. You are so amazing- I hope one day I can be as cool as you are.

    • Tauni says:

      Wow. Amy. Thank you so very much for your sweet comments. I can’t tell you how much they mean…You’ve actually been on my mind quite a bit recently. I just think you’re wonderful. Wish that we could all see ourselves as others do…
