Thanksgiving in Utah

This was my first year away from the fam for Thanksgiving. I had to stay in Utah if I wanted to keep my job at the Lobster... So here I am!

I woke up early yesterday morning and drove home so I could get started on my sweet potatoes. I tried some new recipes and made things I've never made before. I loaded up my car and headed to Grandma Nixon's house where I ate meal #1.
Please note the side pony.
Bon apetite!

When that was over, I took the rest of it to the girls' house so we could have round 2 :) I have to say, Thanksgiving on my own was really fun, and pretty dang extravagent (compliments of Bree, Kelsey, and myself. Emily helped in Spirit!)

When the girls and I sat down to eat, we listed some things we were thankful for.
This Thanksgiving I am very grateful for friends.
Family who loves me
School and a job
Support and blessings from God
A life full of purpose
To know what I want, where I'm going, and what I believe in
And last but not least, my health
I almost forgot! At the end of the night, we were driving to see a movie and we saw a UFO!!! We pulled over and stared at it for a few minutes and I still have NO idea what it was. It landed in a little field off of University Avenue and we all jumped out and ran to go find it. I said to my friends "this is the part in a scary movie when the whole audience is thinking 'Don't get out of your car!'" We weren't able to find it. so it will forever be a mystery. Here it is in all its glory:
