Meg's visit

My friend Meg was in town last week from Saint Thomas. She came to Salt Lake to party with me, before her next adventure. She is moving to Nigeria in July to work with Doctors Without Borders. She is so kick ass!

Our "partying" mostly included hanging out with my family:

and hiking in southern Utah:

Spring Break

Timo flew to Salt Lake City for his spring break...seriously fun. It was kind of like SPRING BREAK '97 but better. It actually reminded me a little of SPRING BREAK 2003, which is kind of what life was like in St. Thomas. Only here, there was no beer, no beach, it was 30-50 degrees colder and I am 10 shades whiter. Thank goodness we saw frat boys that drove from Georgia.

Over the weekend we drove to Moab to hike in Arches and mountain bike around the park. We are so awesome!

President's Day = Awesome

Today was amazing. This month and last month I worked a "butt-load". This weekend I finally had a few days off. I aspired to do something fun, and I did. SNOWSHOEING.

Sue and I hiked up east canyon.

...and, I organized my front closet. This weekend was so fun.
