I love my family, I loved my quick trip home. I'm so thankful for every minute I get to spend with people who love me.

It's been a few years since I've been home to Arizona for Thanksgiving, and I've grown pretty fond of Friendsgivings. Don't get me wrong, I'm SO excited to go hang with my family this year. We'll be at the cabin and that's one of my favorite places in the world. But this Sunday my roommates and I had a killer Thanksgiving dinner. So elegant, we are. The pictures say it all. We had a sit down dinner with just the roommates at 5:00, and friends came over after to help us eat all of the delicious food and desserts. One of my favorite parts of this dinner was our "Self esteem circle" compliments of Janelle. She suggested we all take a turn and say what we love most about each roommate. Good thing we're all obsessed with each other. In all honesty it about brought tears to my eyes! These ladies I live with are so great and we all benefit the house in a different way. I love you guys! Happy Friendsgiving everyone!

Every night

Health care and kidney stones

I am so happy I have health insurance. I got my bill today from the kidney stone adventure I had last month. $6,000! It makes me so terrified for the future and what's going to happen with health care in the US. But as for now, I will just be grateful that I know I'm in good hands in case of emergency. Plus, they gave me this uber dreamy doctor.
