What to do when its blizzarding and you're home alone in Provo

A whole lot of this:
And this...

And of course this

And taking two days to make this:

Thanks to Cathy, Jacie, Lindsey and Greg, this week has turned out pretty spectacular. Lots of cooking, way too much eating, and being bundled up for the blizzard that never came.

Lindsey, Greg and I basically took all night to make the most amazing banana cream pie, and had it for breakfast the next morning at their home in Park City.

What is your favorite kind of pie? Me and Lindsey spent all morning talking about how disgusting Greg's favorite pie is, so we decided to take a poll. Look to your right and vote!

This picture was taken in 2008, the last time I was able to spend Thanksgiving with my family.

I wish I could be there with you guys :)

I'm really grateful for so many things in my life. Spending holidays alone is never ideal... but I'm grateful for the job that I have even if I have to make sacrifices for it.
I'm grateful that I am getting an education, so my job in food service is only temporary.
I'm grateful to know that I will graduate college in just over 4 months, and after that the world is at my fingertips.
I'm thankful that I can do hard things, that I can choose responsibility over what I want sometimes.
I'm thankful that I have learned to choose what I want over responsibility, sometimes :)
I am so grateful for all of the support my family gives me. I have amazing Grandparents, parents, and siblings who would do just about anything for me.

Happy Thanksgiving friends and family, wherever you may be!

Because I'm not able to be in Arizona for this Thanksgiving week, I went for a quick weekend trip. You know why? Because Acey and Jenny have given me a new baby niece :) Her name is Veda Joy Nixon, and she was born on my mom's birthday, November 16th.

Acey is just about the cutest dad you have ever seen and he and Jenny love her so much. It's adorable.

I'm pretty sure I would have taken her back to Utah with me if I were allowed to.

Going to Arizona is always such a treat, and I'm happy I got to spend time with my parents. Even though I didn't spend much time in Gilbert, it still feels really great to be home.

On another note, guess who's baaack? Jared Hardy. I can't believe this kid is home from a mission. So good to see you buddy :)

She works hard for the money

so hard for it honey
she works hard for the money
so you better treat her right!

Today, I'm saying what's wrong with working hard for your money?
Today, I'm saying what's wrong with being normal?
Today, I'm saying I am so grateful for my job at Red Lobster! Cleaning peoples' dirty dishes is GOOD for me. It makes me humble. I work hard for my money and I'm proud of that.

Today, I'm saying I'm happy to be average. Huuuhh?
