break was a whirlwind. i hardly got out my camera… good thing my phone is just another appendage.
seeing this sign in BOI was a huge sigh of relief
seeing poor kourtni in the hospital…. not so much.
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!
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.
the people felt bad for us, so we got toyz.
payton got pretty sick of me taking a trillion pics, that is for sure.
i was sent to the grocery store to buy, then cook, a christmas ham. i had no idea what i was doing.
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!)
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.
it snowed! i had forgotten what that was like.
rondo and i became good pals
also, the river is pretty regardless of season.
diana is the most responsible pet owner i know.
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.
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.
this is a prime example of why i miss my sisters when i am in utah.
also, HAPPY NEW YEAR. on nye i went out with some great friends/ danced around with drunk people from high school.
also, kourtni and i spent lots of time sitting on the couch in recovery mode.
here we are taking one of those “sleeping pictures”.
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!
