My belly buddy, Theresa, lives in Lynnwood, WA. Only a half hour from my house. Her mom was battling cancer, and when T told me her mom only had a little longer left, I bought a ticket to WA to be there for her. A day later, her mom passed. :(
Here we are on the elevator after security.
On the plane - Bree's first plane trip!
And time to sleep :)
My favorite mountain - Mount Raineer
Landed in Seattle!
After we arrived, MacKenzie picked us up. First, we went to my house to surprise my mom. Her birthday just happened to be that same week, so I didn't tell her we were coming. She was talking to Alexa on Facetime (Alexa wanted to see her reaction) and when I walked up, my mom showed Alexa and said, "look who's coming up the driveway!" Haha
Afterwards, I went and surprised Theresa. Her husband, Brad, answered the door. I've never met him before, but he knows who I am. Once I explained who I was, he went to get Theresa, and she came down in shock! :) It was a wonderful surprise.
So, off to pedicures we went!
Afterwards, Kenzie went off to a Halloween party, and Theresa and I went home to eat and get ready to head out again.
My family's all time favorite pizza? Papa Murphy's! And the bubble is obviously the best part. Look how cool this one was?!

The next day, Bree and I went to church with mom and dad.
And then had a big family dinner.

For mom's birthday, we went to Las Margaritas! DELICIOUS! :)
The next day, Theresa and I did some shopping, she showed me the house her mom owned that she was going to live in someday, and then we headed home to play a board-game with the fam, hang out with Ashley, and then head to the airport.

After all of our fun, we had to head back to Utah.
We miss you Theresa and Adriana!!!!!
And Happy Birthday mom!!
