Tony made us chicken & rice for dinner. Roasted chickens at Walmart are only $5!! Compared to $6-7 here in Arizona & California. We watched a movie and then drove to Orem for my reunion but first we stopped to see my friend Jake Soha who works Loss Prevention at the Macy's in the mall there. Yeah! It was SO cool to see him & meet his fiance' Darcie and her mom too. Jake & Darcie are getting married the end of December in the Bountiful temple I believe. PS - I gave him my only other Iron Bru. Those things are a little over $2/each! Agh :-/ But it made Jake's night to get it - he was sooo excited. Lol!
Next stop was my mission reunion in Orem, Utah. There was about 20 or so missionaries there who served under President Weston. The rest of the crowd was all people who served under Gessel. I saw a few cool people who I havent talked to lately so it was fun to see everyone & catch up!
Saturday morning I watched conference with Tony @ Alice Cluff's house in Murray. We went to Subway to get sandwiches for lunch and also for Laura & her companion. Met up with them eventually on temple square and Laura's zone leader was so awesome to give me two tickets for the afternoon session! So I called Tony who was parking my car and riding Trax back to Temple Square and told him to hurry hurry because we were getting in!
Got to ride TRAX after the afternoon session on Saturday to get to my car! Its free for people traveling downtown. Yay!
Saturday night after the priesthood session I met up with my friend Jared Harding who I served around in my first area on the mission and we ate at Leatherby's. I havent eaten here since I lived in California! Tony & I walked there from his apt. Jared & his 'friend' Elise met up with us at almost 10pm. We all ordered food and told mission stories & I liked meeting Elise. She was a really nice girl. I hope things go well for her & Jared.
After the session got out, Tony & I walked to get my bag of stuff that I had checked in and then walked to the reflection pool where I found Julianne and Shawn and Allison. Then Hermana Skinner (Laura) came and we took some pics together. My friends Dil Brinton and Elisa Leppanen met up with us too and Dil got to meet all my sisters. I think that was a goal of his, coming to Utah for conference. So I hope he's happy! Lol We didnt spend too long mingling as everyone had places to get to. Tony & I went back to his apartment where he had made homemade bread and we sliced it and made pizzas. I put sauce, cheese and pineapple on mine. Then we baked it in the oven til the cheese melted. YUM oh so good.
