1. An all-day drive through Idaho, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. 2. Way too long cooped up in the car.
3. Helping Mom make Snickers salad. I mean, it has apples, so it's a salad. 4. Apple pie moonshine that tastes exactly like one should expect moonshine to taste.
5. And another gorgeous four-state, nine-hour drive back home.

Happy Thanksgiving! We're at my mom's house in Las Vegas for the holiday. It's been amazing so far. Dinners always taste better when Mom cooks them, and coffee always tastes better when Mom makes it. We played games with the family last night (brag: I won two out of three. One was all luck though.).
Today we're going to eat all the food, laugh about incredibly silly things with my brother whose personality is eerily similar to mine, and watch the Hunger Games before we all go see Catching Fire tonight!
I'm thankful for an awful lot of things this year, but especially for Jordan, who supports and loves me all of the time.
Also for our cats who (barely) tolerated photos for our Christmas card. I'll share more of them soon. Look forward to Teddy in a Christmas tie and Cubby in a white faux-fur shawl. It's precious and the cats look full of rage in every.single.one.
Adventures in dyeing my hair

So back I went to the store (this time with a hood on!), bought brown dye, and ended up with auburn hair after all. Thank goodness!
Now I look like this:
Family Weekend in Utah
Sunday, October 27, 2013
Jordan and I hadn't been to Ogden before, but we sure like driving through that area. We stopped in Logan to have coffee with my former professor, who is now the chair of Utah State's Department of Journalism and Communication. If any of my readers are in Logan, you have no idea how lucky you are to have Dr. Thomas C. Terry in your town. He is a gem.
My friend Jenna painted my nails MSU colors before the weekend! I wish I had the patience or talent to make my nails look this cute all the time. Let's be real, I'm lucky if I can keep more polish on my nails than my cuticles when I'm painting them. I can't be the only one, right?
Thanks for giving us such a fun weekend with my family, Ogden! We sure enjoyed our time there.
