Day 1: Escape From Utah

Today is the first day of my month of travels and it's been a long one.  I woke up at 5am to catch a 7 am flight to LA.  I had only slept about 2 hours (if you could call it sleep, I was squished in my bed with Claire and Max and because I was the last in I was only left a 12'').  I packed last night in a cloud of sleep deprivation and am now regretting doing so as I realize I had only packed 4 non-matching socks and 3 tops and some other random items to last me .  

I am excited for this month, I have promised myself to take a lot of photograph and try to figure things out again ( I seem to find myself in the process a lot).

These are from the drive to the airport.  Thanks Claire for driving me.

I was given the book Eat Pray Love by Rachel for the trip, I read the first 20 pages or so while on the plane, not sure what it will do for me at this point, I hope it gets better. (Sorry Rach.)

Kelly picked my up from the airport (thank you thank you thank you) I know traffic blows, you are a great friend.

I am staying at my brothers while I am here which I love because I am able to spend time with Oliver and Abby.  They are amazing and wonderful. I can't even begin to tell you all the adorable things they say, I wish we could all love as openly and honestly as they do.

My mom had sent these with me to give to them.  I'm not going to lie, I was just as entertained by them and they were.

And we drew.  That's me on the right.

Me, Oliver, Abby, Nick and Hillary.  I am the big one with giant ears.  He was very adamant that each foot and had had 5 fingers or toes.

Dinner at Roscoes...

For those of you who are not familiar with Roscoes I will just say this... Yum.
Chicken and waffles, they go together like PB&J, I swear it!  

Me and the Lizard. 
I do feel sick still but it was worth it.
Dave shows up and finishes our table scraps.   

I really am exhausted.

If you love me so much, call me back or something. I really was sick and from what you posted if I had gone I'd be sicker aka dead. Ha! Call me hoe!
