welcome to boise, folks

Tuesday after classes Danny, Brittney, Madi, and I packed up the car and drove to Boise (with a short stop in Brigham City to get some Idle Isle - in honor of Dad) to spend the holiday with Meagan, Spencer, and Sienna.

We started off with a great trip to the Boise zoo. Guess what? Boise's zoo was actually worth the seven bucks we paid to get in. They had some awesome monkeys, sweet penguins, and HUGE tigers. But the best part was probably these two girls.
Let's be real, I have some of the cutest nieces ever. 

Then that night we had a GNO (minus the babies) and went to see the new twilight movie - it was overrated in my opinion, but had some decent parts. The best part of this? Meagan made us all some breaking dawn movie packages. 

Type A Blood (cherry soda), Blood Straws (twizzlers), Vampire Diet Food (Beef Jerky), Werewolf Cookies (chocolate fudge cookies), Red Hot Werewolf (cinnamon gum), and Vampirice (chapstick). 
How cute is my sister?

Of course we had a delicious Thanksgiving meal, and yeah it was chicken not turkey because we're all poor college students. 

Friday we did a little black friday shopping at Forever 21, and then we had a little bowling party with the babies. Saturday the boys went to the BSU game while we got to do some serious shopping, and go to the farmer's market. 
Oh, and did I get $220 worth of clothes at anthropologie for under $60? You better believe it. 

We finished off our Saturday night by going to the Boise Fry Company where you choose your potato, style of fries, seasoning, and flavored ketchup. It's better than it sounds. If you ever get a chance to go my recommendation is the yam fries, with cinnamon and ginger, and marshmallow sauce. Delicious. 

The long ride home was totally worth the trip up there. I'm officially counting down for Christmas in Tokyo with the same crowd.
