Texas to Las Vegas to Provo

On Thursday, October 9th, Matt and I woke up at 4 am to drive to Vegas. We left at 5 am and arrived in Las Vegas at a little after 10pm. One four letter word perfectly summarizes the drive: hell! We left Texas when it was dark, drove all day, and finally arrived in Vegas when it was dark. The hundreds of miles blurred into one long nightmare which we are glad is finally over!

This was the one single fascinating thing that I saw during the drive. As we crossed over New Mexico and then Arizona, I found myself asking the question "Who in the world would want to live here?" along with a couple of other words mixed in there. If you want to go for a scenic and a super long drive, Texas to Las Vegas is NOT it!
New Mexico....seriously? The sign says that Las Vegas is 1 mile away. Too bad the GPS still said that we were 700+ miles away.
That Sunday, we thought it would be fun to take the dogs on a walk at the Pueblo Park. The "mix" and "fat" and "fatter" over here enjoyed themselves.
"Hey! Fat butt! Are you gonna walk or what?" Cookie only lasted about 10 minutes and then we had to carry her the rest of the time.
My parents and Matt and I had the opportunity to go to the temple all together!
This past Tuesday, Matt and I made the move up to Provo. Yes, we are still adjusting!
We rented the largest truck that Penske had to offer and our stuff barely fit! Our little home barely fits all of our furniture! Provo is so very different from what Matt and I are used to however, its kind of fun. I couldn't think of a better place for the both of us to be right now.

Just yesterday we celebrated my Double Dose! My big 22! We spent the whole day in Salt Lake shopping and then went to Happy Sumo at night with some friends! Kudos babe! It was awesome!

we used to live around that area but we moved in July right next to BYU. I hope you are liking it! I am sick of the winters but you probably will handle them better than me.
