Utah

So I kinda miss Utah.

There were a few people at Church on Sunday that had just moved from Utah. It was funny to watch them introduce themselves as BYU students and just secretly think to myself, “I was just there…”

But they don’t know that. I look all grown-up and graduated with my baby and hot husband, living the dream in Temple, TX.

They are selling pest control for the summer. Aw, so cute! haha… Good ol’ Utah.

I’m actually pretty excited because Michael will get to play bball with them, helping the competition out there on Tuesday nights. Plus, it’s just fun to have new faces.

Speaking of Utah, the weather here has cooled off a little, which is really nice. I mean, it’s not SNOWING, it’s just 60 degrees. I’m bracing myself for the unbearable heat…wish  me luck.

So I came across this great list. Check it out if you’d like a good laugh about some fun Utah jokes.
