Fall Break

Whew! Fall Break came and went!

On Wednesday, my wonderful mother-in-law, Sally,  flew in from Little Rock to visit me and Scott! First things first, we went and got a burger at Five Guys followed by a trip to Brick Oven Pizza for dinner.

Thursday, Scott had to go to class so Sally and I went to 3 different fabric shops. Lets just say I can't wait to get a sewing machine so I can start some projects, and possibly even a quilt! We picked Scott up for some lunch at Cafe Rio, where I stuffed myself with a massive burrito. Then it was off to take Scott back to class, and more shopping. And as if there was anymore room in my stomach, we went to Red Lobster for dinner. I dont even like seafood but I tried the popcorn shrimp and it was pretty good.

Friday we drove to Salt Lake to eat lunch with the Thompsons at Bells Deli! Bell's is owned by Phillis, one of Scotts converts on his mission. One of the best burgers in Utah! Then we did some more shopping around Salt Lake where Sally bought me several outfits at Old Navy (She spoils me too much!) Then the smorgasbord of food continued at Carinos, where we met Aunt Dorthy and the cousins: Katie, Susan, and Janette. Then it was back to Provo for the night.

Saturday was an early day. We woke up and were on the road by 8 on our way to Pocotello ID! The whole trip to Pocotello was for a trip to Buddy's. Buddy's has the best salad dressing possibly in the whole world! Then we headed back to Preston, ID (home of Napoleon Dynamite) for the quilt show. Sally's friend Nancy won 2nd place at the quilt show! Then it was on to Franklin, ID to visit more with Nancy and her daughter, Emily, who just got home from her mission to Tampa, FL.  Then on to Richmond, UT to spend the night with cousin Karen.

Sunday, up early again to drive back to Franklin ID for church so we could hear Nancy's daughter, Emily, give her talk in church, since she was back from her mission. Then it was back to Nancy's for a brunch with lots of friends and family.  Then the long drive back to Provo began. We were all so sleepy, we had to take turns driving! Once back in Provo, we made steam pudding and heated up all the leftovers from all of our eating ventures. We went to bed at 9!

I didn't want to got back to school today! I didn't want to say buy to Sally either!
