Ode to In 'n Out Burger

Last week, hamburger lovers in Salt Lake County received terrific news. In 'n Out Burger is finally coming to our area. I can't even tell you the thrill this brought to us, but joy and rejoicing was certainly a part of it. I first tried one several years ago on a trip to Las Vegas, and was hooked. There's just something about the simplicity of freshly cut fries, and a toasted bun. And you don't have to spend a lot of time figuring out the menu. Burgers and fries and sodas are the only items they serve. I've been in California a couple of times since, and always try to find one before I have to leave for home.

Just when I thought the news couldn't get any better, I read in today's paper that not only will we be getting an In 'n Out Burger, but we'll be getting three of them. I know! Three! And one of them will be fairly close to my work. So I expect to be taking some long lunches.

My co-worker and I tried a poor imitation of In 'n Out Burger last week, and although it looks exactly the same on the inside (down to the shape of the counter where you place your order), it just didn't even compare. So from now on I'll just wait until the real deal is available to us in the fall.

I had it once and it was burger, fries and soda. Maybe I need to give it another try ...

New 'Do

For probably the last 10 years or so, I've had pretty much the same hairstyle. For the most part, it's been long, all one length, and I would eventually put it up in a ponytail almost every day, because I couldn't stand having it in my face. It drove me crazy, but I didn't know what to do with it, and at the same time, I liked that I could basically get up and go every day without a lot of effort. For the past several months now, I've been threatening to do something different and drastic, and finally, yesterday, I did. At the recommendation of Angel, I made an appointment with her stylist. It took several weeks to get in, but finally, the day arrived. Angel went with me, for moral support, and to be the photographer. I went in with some basic ideas, but after some consultation and looking at photos with Francine, this is what I ended up with. First, the "before" shot: In process: And finally, the finished product: I can't remember the last time
Hi, my name's Tracie and I'm a Mormon. That being said, I've provided enough context for the conversation I had with the receptionist at work today: Christy: (Showing me a photo) What picture is this movie from? Me: Mmmm, Serendipity maybe? Christy: should know this. Me: I should? Christy: (Finally) It's from the movie "Charlie"! Me: How would I know that? I don't watch Mormon movies. They're dumb. Now that I've let the cat out of the bag, I guess I should also confess that I also don't listen to Mormon pop music (other than the original recording of The Forgotten Carols), or read Mormon fiction. So sue me. Let's face it, it's not like most of them are of real quality anyway. When it comes to Mormon music, I'll stick with my MoTab and the hymns of Zion.

Triple D Divas Do Northern Utah

Last Saturday, the Triple D Divas met for a day trip get-away to Northern Utah - specifically Logan and Brigham City (with a little touch of Idee-ho thrown in for good measure). We started our journey with lunch at the Bluebird Cafe. Everyone knows about the Bluebird - it's about the oldest place on main street, and is tradition for anyone whose ever done a Logan Temple Trip. We went in to see the Logan Tabernacle, and I snapped this cool picture of the oragn pipes. (Of course, now that we're all in our 40's and have shrinking bladders, the Tabernacle also made for a clean and convenient potty stop.) ...Also a view of the Logan Temple spires from outside the Tabernacle...    From there, it was off to Glossner's Cheese Factory for some squeaky cheese. After that, we went to the Pepperidge Farms Outlet, and the girls all found some cookies and stuff.  But nothing really excited me there.  However, the outlet is located in
