A spontaneous trip

So yesterday Joel and I took a spontaneous trip out of town. The problem was that we are currently running low on funds, so we opted for inexpensive activities. We checked out the Indian Petroglyphs a couple hours away, which turned out to be intriguing and entertaining. The view from the plateau where the petroglyphs were located also gave a spectacular view of the city, as well as the Cedar Crest, but the best part was that it only cost a dollar (and they didn't have change for a $20, so we had to scrape around the car for $1 in change, yeah it was pathetic) Although the petroglyphs were interesting to see, the desert heat took its toll on us, and so after an hour and half of checking them out, we decided to save the rest of the petroglyphs for a cooler the fall.

After our adventure at the petroglyphs, we stopped at Dion's Pizza for dinner, and this got me thinking. Whenever I go to Dion's, I always order the same thing - a slice of pizza with tomatoes, pineapple, and mushroom (I know it sounds weird) with a fruit cup (my half-hearted attempt to eat healthy). I'm the type of person that likes to try different things at restaurants. I get tired of ordering the same thing over and over...except when it comes to pizza. When I order pizza, I like the same kind of pizza every single time. The more I thought about this, the more I began to think that having the same kind of pizza seems to be some kind of universal seems like most people like their pizza the same way. I find this amusing...but maybe it's just me. I have no idea why I felt the need to share this with you guys.

After Dion's Joel and I stopped at Ross (I always forget how much I like this store, even though its disorganization makes me crazy), to look for a cocktail dress (for me of course!) to wear on our cruise next month. I seriously tried on like 16 different dresses before I found the one....and I think that Joel just about died from boredom in the meantime. Seriously. He was going nuts. Poor guy. I can't figure out why he goes shopping with me sometimes. lol. I ended up settling on a cute brown, knee-length, spaghetti-strap dress with turquoise embroidered flowers and sequence, and a turquoise satin ribbon that ties at the waist. Way cute. (In case you were wondering.) I can't wait to wear it...but now I need some shoes to go with it...

Finally after a stop at Starbucks and Keva Juice (for me), we headed out, only to get stuck in traffic for nearly two hours. Yes, that's right. Originally we were supposed to get home around 9:30 PM, but instead got home close to midnight. Grrr...

So know you guys should sleep better tonight knowing about our totally spontaneous trip to A-town yesterday. Peace.
