Actually, we got home last night, but never got around to posting.

We had a great time in SLC! Wow! I'd heard downtown SLC had been totally revitalized, and it was just lovely! We spent the afternoon mostly window shopping and had a great lunch at this Asian Fusion place. Then we headed to our motel and hooked up with agilebrit who took us to dinner at Famous Dave's. She's as much fun in RL as she is online, and I appreciate her hubby letting us borrow her for an evening [g] We returned her mostly totally undamaged.

Sunday, we had an early lunch at Cheesecake Factory, which wasn't all that, unfortunately. Then we tooled around the local mall for a bit before heading for home. An hour outside SLC, it started to SNOW! And it snowed for the next nearly four hours. Understand, it was 80 on Saturday. We stopped for gas, and half the people were wearing shorts and sandals and were running from car to bathroom. We, being the wise women we were, had checked the weather before we left and knew it was supposed to get very cold on Sunday, so we'd brought coats.

One of the results of our meetup with agilebrit was the two of us driving ninjababe to commit fic. She hates us about now [weg] But you can see the results, a delightfully cracky Torchwood fic, here.

All in all, we had a great time, and have plans to return for a three day weekend next time!

Glad you had such a wonderful time and that you're home safe. Snow? Augh!

It was fun!

I like driving through snow or rain, or through winding mountain roads at high speed. :)

Glad you had such a good time and you're home safe and sound. Nin and fic huh? Sounds like fun.

It was nice getting her to write again! Seeing as how we got to know each other was her asking me to beta for her [g]

Yeah, it finally stopped snowing today around 4pm. Yay. :/

It was GREAT seeing you guys. Can't wait to do it again.

We hope to come back soon! [HUGS]

Side note: I swear, it seems every time we meet someone here or when we were in SLC, it turns out they're from CA too. It's been very amusing!

Sounds like a great time. SO very jealous of any one who gets to meet you two in real life

YAY! Welcome home! SLC is always an adventure. And I have to agree about CCF, it was going downhill in Vegas, so I'm not surpised that it's company wide.

And snow! Hey, we got all that snow and sent it your way. ;0
