Road Trip to Utah!

I work with the nicest and funnest people! So I had starting thinking a week ago that I would make a quick trip to Utah to see family and friends, maybe go to the BYU vs. USU football game. But because I had to buy a new battery for my car, gas money was gone. I went into the temp. work Thursday and told them about what happened and how I wanted to go to Utah, and they told me they were going for the weekend and I could ride with them. So I decided to do it! We left Friday morning and got to Utah around 7. I went to dinner with Laci at Chipotle, a place I've wanted to eat since I moved to Colorado, funny that I had it in Utah! (I loved it by the way). Then Laci and I went to Melinda's and played some rock band. Good times, I love that game! I stayed with Melinda that night, and then rode to Tremonton with her in the morning. I squealed with delight when I saw the Tremonton sign. You would have thought it had been years since I had been there, not 2 months! It was so good to be home. I treasured every minute. Hugging my sister, Katrina, I felt like I didn't want to let go, I was SO excited to see her! Jen brought my nieces over for a few hours, and I was so happy to be with them. I can't believe how much my niece Abbie has grown. She will be a year old next month. My brother Mick was working in Tremonton so he was able to come visit for a bit. We watched General Conference, and ate some good old Tremonton Taco Time, it's the best! Then I rode with Meggan back to Salt Lake that night and had dinner with my girls, and finally got to meet ShaLynn's boyfriend! Laci's roommate also dyed and cut my hair, something that was badly needed. I stayed with Laci that night, and watched the morning session of conference, and then headed back to Colorado. I had mixed feelings heading back, I was sad to leave my family but was also excited to return to Colorado at the same time. It's good for me to be here. I definitely miss Utah, but I definitely love Colorado!

Laci and I taking a break during Rock Band. I love this girl so much!
Melinda and I rocking out. I always have so much fun when I'm with her.
My niece Abbie. She has the prettiest big blue eyes I've ever seen. Click on this picture to make it bigger, and you will see what I mean!
Posing with my nieces. Libby isn't a fan of pictures, as you can tell :)I love these girls SO much. I was most excited to see them this weekend.
Dinner with my girls: Laci, Gail, Shay, and Megg. These girls have been a big part of my life, they are like sisters to me. It was so good to be with all of them. I love that Laci is cutting me off with her gorgeous hair!

I agree it is hard living away from home, but it is always nice to return home. I have to agree as well, Tremonton Taco Time is the best. Other Taco Times just don't live up to it.

Look how fun! I miss all the old girlfriends! We used to have good times back in the day... :) Yeah I agree I love Georgia but it always feels good to come home. I'm with you when I see the mountains (which always seem so much bigger than I ever remembered!), Tremonton sign, Taco Time, Kents, etc... I think to myself I'm back baby!

After reading your blog, I called mom and said that I couldn't believe you came to Utah and I never heard a word about it. She said to me "she was only here 3 hours." Well, you got a lot done in that amount of time! And lots of fun pics from your quick trip! When's your first day on the job? I forgot to tell the kids about it, and they were still praying "Bless Aunt Tawna to get a job". Too cute! Maybe I still won't tell them!!!
