break was a whirlwind. i hardly got out my camera… good thing my phone is just another appendage.

image

seeing this sign in BOI was a huge sigh of relief

image

seeing poor kourtni in the hospital…. not so much.

image

obviously payton had a good time hanging out in the room. hey, at least he got to eat chik-fil-a three times in one week!

image

i thoroughly enjoyed wearing all of kourtni’s clothes while she was gone… also, lindsay’s shirt is actually kourtni’s, and i wore it in spain, so…. well, sisterhood of the traveling shirt, i guess.

image

the people felt bad for us, so we got toyz.

image

payton got pretty sick of me taking a trillion pics, that is for sure.

image

i was sent to the grocery store to buy, then cook, a christmas ham. i had no idea what i was doing. image

this is just one of the many times i requested going out for mexican food. i think we hit all of my favorite spots! (minus pollo rey…. we’re coming for ya!)

image

we skipped out on church and ate brunch at hailey’s consisting of leftover vegetable platters, diet coke, cold pizza, trail mix, cookies, and twice baked potatoes. if that isn’t the epitome of holiday binging, well, i don’t know what is. not mad.

image

it snowed! i had forgotten what that was like.

image

rondo and i became good pals

image

also, the river is pretty regardless of season.

image

diana is the most responsible pet owner i know.

image

i spent much of break waking up between 5:30 to 7:30 AM thanks to some serious jet lag issues.

i did a lot of insomniatic baking. most of it didn’t turn out too well…

i promise the cookies tasted decent.

image

after a lot of sad, overcooked vegetables, all i wanted to eat at home was kale and sweet potatoes.

and cinnamon chex. i did just that.

image

this is a prime example of why i miss my sisters when i am in utah.

image

also, HAPPY NEW YEAR. on nye i went out with some great friends/ danced around with drunk people from high school.

imagelet us just say it was a memorable nye.

image

also, kourtni and i spent lots of time sitting on the couch in recovery mode.

here we are taking one of those “sleeping pictures”.

… i mean, we were totally asleep and someone took this of us.
imageeven though it was a little bit of an unconventional christmas, break was great.

it was so refreshing to see family, friends, and be an american speaking english.

and wearing sweats to the grocery store. three cheers for that!
