Christmas Shopping in Utah~Sorta


While in Utah this week my main goal is to do the shopping for all the grandkids that live here. That would be 8! That way when we fly back on Christmas Eve we won't have to bring a ton of extra stuff or ship it all. Brilliant, don't you think?

Well, Grampa was sweet to volunteer to watch the little girls while Jen and I went out to do it. Love that man he is so good to us! We left the house about 9:00 so not much was open that early. So we decided to drop by Shopko. Well, we got all the kids things there and were done by 9:45 just in time for the stores to open so we could see if there was just one or two other little things they might like...and if you believe that... It was actually play time for Jen and me!

Can I just tell you that Utah has the best shopping around? Honestly, where we live cannot hold a candle to it. Check this out...


One of our favorite haunts!

One thing I did not make clear to those of you that have not been here. There must be 20 great stores like this in the immediate area...maybe more. We don't even have one in our town!

I am having shopping envy over here. Not merchandise envy (thought I am sure you got some great stuff) but shopping envy. You have no idea how much I wish I could go out with you and Jen and spend a day shopping. Utah really has a corner on it- I'm telling you.
