Oh Utah... How Do I Miss Thee {Highlights}

This past weekend Maryn and I hit two birds with one stone by going to Utah. She needed a ride to the airport, and I needed to see my friends. It was mildly exhausting, but mostly really fun!

We got there Thursday night, and I made it just in time for yoga at the climbing gym with Tia (and, as it were, to wave at Cute Rock Climbing boy, who, as it were, is dating someone. Maybe she'll be gone in 18 months?) Ah I love yoga. And I love Tia.

I visited Sparks, said hi to my brother, and then helped Jared edit a paper. It's possible my grammatical advice was unsolicited, but part of me always itches to add a comma or combine two sentences.

Breakfast with Sarah was really fun. Though she and I were roommates, it is pretty rare that when we get together, it's just the two of us. So I really liked that.

Climbing with Alison and Steph for the last time was a little sad, but good. Haha I didn't realize how much strength I had built up until I went this weekend, and quickly realized I had lost it. :)

The dance party with Maryn and Jessie, though short lived, was also quite fun. But probably not as good as when we tried to fit five people in one bed to watch a movie at Tyler's. I ended up sleeping on the floor, and I bet we all got maybe, maybe 3 hours of sleep.

Seeing the Joseph Smith movie and then going to some sort of Wedding Expo for the free food at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake was excellent. The movie was great, and it was really good to have such a clear reminder of why I started this mission business in the first place. The free food- so good. Nothing like mooching with your friends when everyone is poor.

Stopping by Sparks for a last heart to heart with some of my brother's roommates was unexpected, but certainly enjoyed.

Grocery shopping with Emily- loved it and love her. :)

Sushi with the money room- what a good group of people! It's funny to think that some of my favorite/closest friends came from where I worked. You can never go wrong when you're with a group made of people you enjoy individually.

I wish I could say I remembered more about sleeping over at Emily's with Margo, but after the movie, I was falling asleep while they were talking to me. However- the morning was fun!

Classic Laurie Caitlan time. It's remarkable that after 2 and a half years, I still never laugh as hard as I do at what she and I manage to come up with. (Zebra Death Song? Ok)

Oh Erin. I'm so glad that was my last Utah adventure, because it was definitely the funniest. She and I always bring out the best in each other- and by best I mean bold, lack of inhibitions, and a guaranteed good story. It all began with sitting in sacrament meeting, and noticing a cute boy in one of the pews in front of us. The day progressed, including making small conversation with Church Boy at a later fireside, and ended with us sending him flirtatious/forward texts, and he and I arranging for a lunch date the next day. Poor kid. But it was good, I still think he's cute.:)

I only spent about $100 for the entire weekend. Yes, I think it was worth it.
