Reason 163: Boston Day 1

Tuesday, May 1, 2012.

Today we flew to Boston!  Flying standby is always an adventure into the unknown, but we got really lucky.  We even got to sit by each other on our flight, which is almost unheard of.  We entertained ourself by watching season 1 of The Big Bang Theory.  It was AWESOME.

We decided to go to Boston because my husband served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Massachusetts.  I had never been there and he was itching to go back!

We arrived at 10:30 pm and bought are Charlie cards (subway passes) and a Boston creme donut from Dunkin' Donuts.   We spent the first 3 nights at the Rodeway Inn in Revere, MA.  We were nervous when we pulled up because it looked super sketchy, but it turned out to be nice on the inside, which is what really matters.

Reason 162: Pizazz Invite!

Everyone Come!  My beautiful sister, Hannah, is dancing in this review and she is super talented :)

Reason 161: Indoor Meet 3- Albuquerque

January 20-21, 2012

First *real* meet was in Albuquerque.  This track was... raised.  It was so weird.  I am getting used to it now since a couple of meets have been similar, but I was definitely shocked!

Downtown Albuquerque is actually a pretty sketchy place.  Walking around down there, even in broad daylight, was scary.  Our hotel had a nice view, but that was about it.  The best part of the trip was dinner on Saturday.  I went with a group of distance girls to Garduno's restaurant.  WOW.  It was one of those restaurants that you can imagine yourself hopping on a plane JUST to go eat there.  Yep- that good.

Reason 160: St. George weekend

January 14, 2012

While the team went on a road trip to Boise, I went to St. George with Jason, Andrew, and Justin.

Rappelling.  Eating.  Double date with Sarah and Jeff.  Ignoring the onset of real life for a little bit longer.
Little Hannah rappelling on a rather high rappel.

Reason 159: Indoor Meet 1- Provo

January 6-7, 2012

This weekend we spent in Provo, hosting UVU and basically doing a time trial.

Smith Fieldhouse Track
Our indoor track

Smith Fieldhouse Track
I've realized that most indoor tracks are visible for the entire thing.  Ours is not.  Weird.  And difficult.

So, thus starts the beginning to the indoor track season.

Still Alive

Somehow still alive.  This weekend will be my FIRST ONE in my apartment here since January 6 and only my second one since mid-December.  Maybe I will blog since my husband will be on the Klondike with Scouts (haha).  Brief points...

I am writing my lit review for my thesis (gag)
Track is awesome- traveling has been really fun (and exhausting)
