Tim and I FINALLY managed to go on a hike this past weekend, and I can't even tell you how great it was to get back up into the mountains (even while lugging a 30-pound toddler in an uncomfortable hiking backpack) after being in the city for way too long. It's one thing to see the mountains constantly while driving around town, but another thing entirely to get up there and explore and be right in the middle of all that beauty. I wish we were able to get up there more often. Glad you're loving your new home so much!

Few of things:
1. OMG the CHEAP of living out west vs. the DC metro area. We also giggled on our first day in town when we parked and then spent a confused few minutes looking for meters only to discover... there were no meters. Parking is FREE

2. " It's amazing. It's everything we wanted." - this is also how I feel about our ability to live outside. I love Colorado best when I'm outdoors, and, happily, that's the easiest thing in the world to arrange. I love it.

3. My due date was just changed to Dec 1. See you 'round twitter for midnight feedings...

I am torn between "YAY, you love life!" and "BOO, I miss you." Not that we hung out A TON, but still. I do. Remember when I was all anti-Twitter? So glad I got over that and can follow your antics there. :)

Okay, fine, I'm coming down on the YAY side. YAY!

I will never understand milk prices. I am in WI - we have dairy as far as the eye can see. It should be cheap as can be, yet non-organic milk fluctuates between $1.75 - $4.50 gallon. (organic hovers $6-$9 gallon) Sigh.
I used to think red state thing would really bother me, then WI went asinine and turns out I really hate it.
I love your hiking pictures, I can't remember - did you have any problems adjusting to altitude?

I love this! I know some of this from Twitter but it's always so much more...INFORMATIVE...when you see it written out long-form. :)

Congratulations!

It's cool that you can see all the good sides; sometimes people can't see past that it's different. Nice vistas, too!

congratulations on both the new baby and loving where you live. :-)

We moved a year ago from northern NJ to southern California, and I know exactly what you mean about the mountains. I am actually still not used to seeing them. The scenery is just SO different, but I am always struck by their beauty while driving around. Sadly, things are not way cheaper here--we were in sticker shock when we moved here. I was (and still am) flabbergasted at how ridiculously expensive everything is here. And also ditto to the being transplanted to a red state--the amount of NObama stickers in our town is depressing. Although the anti-Obama sentiments around here seem to be because everyone here is insanely rich and concerned about their taxes going up, not because they are racist jerks.

I'm glad you posted! congrats again!

It sounds WONDERFUL, Jen, I am so glad you are happy :) And of course in the Aerts family we have all been thinking happily of your new addition-on-the-way!

Also, great title by the way.

Love all the hiking pictures. Empty Sam's club sounds both amazing and like a detail out of a sci-fi YA novel. The last time we tried to go to costco, we actually pulled in the parking lot, did one lap, looked at each other, and both decided to just go home (after a 30 minute drive to get there).

I've bookmarked this post so that I don't have to ask you every.single.time what your due date is.

I love this post, I love that you are here (and we definitely need to hang out again, soon!) and I LOVE that you see the wonderful, the beautiful, and the weird. :) It's really a pretty good description of the whole state.

(I think we've talked about this before, but the closer you move to the downtown area the less Mormon it gets...so for what that's worth. ;) )

(Also? I've lived here for 30 years and I still can't get over the mountains. Nor do I want to.)

What a great post - I've wondered what you think of life in Utah.

Like Janssen I've wondered what you've been thinking about Utah.

I was surprised to hear that there were so many Mormons in SLC. I was under the impression that SLC was pretty "normal". I grew up in Utah County and my high school was about 99.8% Mormon (but not necessarily practicing Mormons) but I thought I'd heard SLC was something like 25%. Anyway, I'm glad to hear your impression of us is a good one. And I'm glad to hear you've found some non-Mormons lady friends that you like. I'm sure it would be hard to be forced to hang out with ladies that only talked about their ward members and missionaries. :-)

It was weird moving to Seattle and knowing that NOBODY around me was a Mormon after living most of my life knowing that EVERYONE around me was. I quickly grew to LOVE it. (Us non-Utah-Mormons refer to Utah-Mormons as "Utards". They are SO different from us. I can spot a Utah tourist here in Seattle from a mile away. Truth.)

The gun thing is CRAZY. I've never seen anyone carry a gun there. And I hope I never do. I'm surprised you've seen that in SLC. (Clearly I think SLC is far more liberal then it really is.)

Stuff IS cheap there. I think because Mormons have too many kids to be able to afford $5 milk so the cost of living is forced to be low. Plus, there is a d@mn Wal-Mart on every corner. (At least in Utah County.)

When I first came to Seattle the cost of parking BLEW my mind. We went to Utah last winter and Ken and I couldn't believe how cheap it was to park when we took the kids to visit Temple Square. DUDE! So, as much as people complain about the Mormons you can thank us for subsidizing the parking with our tithing money. (Just kidding.)

And the mountains; I admit I've become desensitized, unlike Heidi. Maybe it's because my parents live at the honest-to-goodness base of them or that Seattle has Mt. Rainier. Either way, it's sad.

CONGRATS on the new bebe. It's very exciting news. And having another girl means not having to spend more money on clothes. Hand-me-downs rule.

(P.S. Utah winter is the most horrible thing in the history of the world. I do not miss that for a second.)

(P.P.S Sorry for the comment. I should have just e-mailed you.)

A large percentage of of the things you assert is supprisingly accurate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this particular issue goes. But at this time there is one position I am not too comfortable with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your issue, let me observe exactly what all the rest of the readers have to point out.Nicely done.

I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I'm looking to create my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks
