Just a Steak and Potatos Kind of Weekend

This weekend was a whirlwind of excitement as I had not seen my family in 2+ months. I spent quite possibly one of the best weekends of my life with good family, good food, and good friends. Lets just say I was not quite ready to head back to P-town this afternoon... I missed all of the people that I love in Utah while I was gone, but I am sure missing everyone that I love in Arizona now! How come I can't be in two places at once?! At least my mom sent me home with a suitcase full of homemade bread and oreos...

Phoenix in the fall is a magical place. There is something so peaceful about the desert when you can actually stand to be outside in it. Cool air in Phoenix is a welcome novelty and I enjoyed the "warmer" temperatures while everyone else froze... I only donned a coat once; I guess after a few days I readjusted and thought it was cold too.

I suppose I am back in good ole Provo for the long haul. School and work are calling my name and I just can't pretend like I don't hear them anymore. So here's to holding chickens, lunch with my mom, pouring rain, sweater shopping with Jare Bear, Painting my nails with Marisa Maurice, Singing with Jason, and Snuggling with Jake the Bake. To hockey games with my dad (eh?), and lists, and farms, and sweeping at the temple, learning new things, and making apple crisp. To seeing old friends, and making new ones, eating burritos(mmmm burritos) and chicken pot pie. But untill Christmas eve, here's to going to school, and Deseret Book, and bachelorette parties, calls from the AZ, and spending time with Meredith. To doing crazy things late at night, and falling asleep to parties outside my window. And above all, no matter where or when--to loving life to the fullest and loving every minute of it!


  1. Let's play. Let's do something crazy. Let's paint the town.

    I'm serious.
