Tracie's Holladay Inn

For several weeks this summer, I had my own bed and breakfast going.  Or, as my sister refers to it - The "Holladay" Inn.  First to arrive was my sister Wendie and her family who came and stayed for a couple of days in mid-June on their way home to Oregon.  The week after that, it was my brother Todd and his family from Tucson.  The week after that, it was my sister Stephanie and her family, on their way to their new home in Houston.  And a few days after that, it was Mom and Dad, on their way to the MTC and their mission in Mississippi.

For the most part, a great time was had by all.  There were a couple of instances of sick kiddoes during the night, but other than that, we kept busy and enjoyed ourselves.  The best part was getting to see so many of my nieces and nephews and have some quality Auntie time with them.

Should your travel plans bring you to the Salt Lake area, here's a list of amenities you'll find at Tracie's Holladay Inn:
  • A spare bedroom with an actual queen-sized mattress on the floor (additional full-sized blowup mattress and more blankets available upon request).
  • Your own family bathroom.
  • A sports room for the kids to play the Wii or watch videos.
  • A swimming pool - open all day from June to September.
  • A beautiful balcony to look out at the Cottonwood Canyons.
  • Laundry facilities.
  • Complimentary Cable TV (Includes ESPN, Disney HD, Fox News and Encore Westerns).
  • Complimentary continental breakfast (Note: we do not serve the Holiday Inn Express Cinnamon Rolls, but we do have cheesy scrambled eggs available upon request).
  • Access to bleach spray, plastic bags, a metal bowl, and sprite when your kids get sick during the night.
Attractions close by:
  • A library next door where your kids can check out a book or two using Aunt Tracie's library card.
  • Dairy Queen - only 2 blocks away!
  • Only 10 minutes to Millcreek Canyon, where you can have a hike and a cookout.
  • Creekside Park for frisbee golf (also has a kids playground with a fort)
  • Only 20-30 minutes from downtown attractions like Temple Square and City Creek Center.
Come one, come all. No deposit required, just a willingness to put up with Aunt Tracie for a couple of days.


Thanks for hosting us! We will definitely be back to Tracie's Holladay Inn. :) Sorry about the sick kiddo - next time will be better! And..... the cheesy eggs were pretty darn great!

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
