Dropping my sisters off at college...

The current weather up in the college-town of Rexburg, ID is unheard of...chilly, but not frigid...and there's almost no snow. In January?? Here we stood on one of the 5 patches of snow in the city...
Jimmy John's for lunch...SO good...
Kisses in front of Celeste's freshman dorm...
Helped move Celeste in...yay for Freshman year!
Moved Corrie in to her new apartment...Brooks loved shooting some hoops...
Went out for dinner at Craigo's...er, I mean Pizza Pie Cafe...different from my days up there :)
Bath time while Celeste unpacked and set up her room...
Enjoyed the gorgeous, yet chilly, weather while walking around campus...
Purchased text books...
Said goodbye's and wished good luck to our girls this semester!
To say I'm excited for my sisters Corrie and Celeste to be up in Rexburg, going to college at the same time, is a huge understatement. I'm actually trying really hard not to be jealous down here :) Corrie is on the homestretch and only has a few more semesters 'til she graduates from BYU-Idaho, so she'll be able to show Celeste the ropes of school and how to get the most out of college life. It makes me giddy just thinking about all of it! I love them so much and I'm excited to hear about how their semesters go :)

Physical Health:
Going to the gym for a little date with the elliptical...it's a love/hate relationship ;)

How fun that they get to be there at the same time! I am suddenly craving Pizza Pie Cafe like crazy! There's one in Highland (just a few minutes from me)!

How fun. I LOVE Craigos pizza, still my favorite, and wierd that it's no longer "Craigos" anymore. And seriously, not frigid in January? What a fluke! You know that means snow in April. :) Love your fam.

That is awesome! Rexburg, ID will always have a special place in my heart. I need to get down there for a visit. I've heard so much has changed! How fun that you got to take your sisters down there. I think I'd be a little jealous too! Just a little. :)

What exciting times for both of your pretty sisters!! I love that you got to go with them for the drop off...looks like you guys had a grand time! And little Brooks...awwwwww! His haircut looks so fabulous! And I love that he was shooting some hoops...precious little boy. :)

I don't know what Jimmy John's is, but oh boy, it looks delish! I'm drooling over my computer screen. AND oh the pizza! I love a huge slice of cheesy pizza. yum yum.

Hope you had a safe trip home!
