currently blogging from salt lake city, utah. we flew in yesterday morning to go to the utah/byu football game last night (post forthcoming) and are staying through thanksgiving.
started out with a little glitch though -- our flight left burbank at 7:30 a.m. yesterday, so we planned to get up at 6 a.m. unfortunately, either because i stayed up too late watching twilight the night before or because i have this bad habit of turning off my alarm in my sleep, i opened my eyes at 6:45 a.m. uh...yeah. we slept in. i believe the exact words out of my mouth were: "brandon! we're just like home alone! we slept in!"
we grabbed all our stuff and drove 90 mph to the airport, hoping against hope that we'd make it. i didn't have high expectations however, because we were planning to check our bags (dang cowboy boots!). not sure if i was more upset about missing our flight or the fact that i didn't get up on time -- the whole ride to the airport i kept thinking "I DO NOT DO THINGS LIKE THIS!!! I am RESPONSIBLE!!" haha. surprise, lyndsey, you're not as on top of it as you'd like to think.
long story short, we didn't make it on the 7:30. rather than wait for the next flight, which got us in 30 min. before game time (assuming all flights were on time, which is unlikely), i had a flash of inspiration and got us on a direct flight out of LAX, leaving at 11 a.m. so we drove home, ate breakfast, showered and drove to the other airport. luckily, we made that flight.
and here we are. i must say, coming into salt lake is like arriving at a family reunion. i've never made it out of slc airport without running into someone we know (remember, janessa? :). yesterday we saw two friends, at two separate places. gotta love utah.
another thing to love: NO snow on the ground! i hope it stays this way for the next five days.
