We hit the ground and headed straight for the Salt Lake Temple. We made a bucket list together where we decided to visit 50 temples before we die. We’re slacking with only 5, so we knew a trip to Utah where there are so many would have a trip to one. Much to our dismay, Salt Lake was closed. Luckily it was only a 20 minute drive up to Bountiful. What a pretty place to go, and we were able to do proxy sealings for couples to be married for time and all eternity- truly a special experience!
After, we couldn’t stay away from the Salt Lake Temple, so we went to check out the view from the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. We also went to check out the food options.
Seriously, I love this stuff! And my non-fish loving husband really enjoyed the prime rib meal too!
We headed back to the hotel and got out of our dressy attire and into our concert attire.
Not only were we excited to see our friend Catherine in Book on Tapeworm, but we were also stoked to see Mindy Gledhill! Her song “All About Your Heart” I was introduced to by others who told me she was singing about Jacob’s feelings towards me while dating. We love her!
The best part of the trip by far was surprising Catherine. Jacob yelled “WE LOVE YOU CATHERINE!” when she took stage. We suddenly weren’t sure if we’d invoked nerves or gone too far, but she told us to hear his voice just pumped her up!
I just can’t ever say enough about how grateful I am for an amazing friend, and one who we get to pay to see do her thing! And seriously, check out Book on Tapeworm, they are one of the smartest, most musically inclined bands on the scene. Every song has a literary reference, and my former English teaching heart just can’t stop pounding in sheer love for them.
I would have been happy just seeing Book on Tapeworm, but seeing Mindy Gledhill was truly icing on the cake! I really like her Indie style and upbeat sound. But hearing her explain the stories behind the songs just made me feel so much more connected to them!
Plus she’s about the most energetic singer I’ve ever seen, and plain adorable!
When we got to go see Catherine after the concert we were treated to find Mindy complimenting her performance, and able to snap a picture with both our favorite leading ladies!
I’m grateful I got to spend time talking to both of these poetic souls after the concert. I’m also grateful for companion passes that let me be there, and a reward ninja husband who pays attention to those details to make sure we can do some awesome things spending very little money!
