November 20

I had been looking forward to the Boise State vs. Utah State football game for a while now... not because I thought it would be a really great game, but because some of my coworkers and I had planned a road trip to Logan to watch the game. I am thankful to Mandy and Mike who let me bum a ride to Logan with them. I loved seeing all the cars traveling down with Boise State car flags and car magnets. Other people donned in blue and orange waved as they passed us on the freeway or gave us a thumbs up. At the rest stop and the gas station we chatted with other Bronco fans headed to the game like we were all old friends.

I was totally impressed with what a $40 dollar a night hotel room looks like in Logan. Can't get much cheaper than that! We stayed in a Super 8... complete with a microwave, refrigerator, and free continental breakfast.
The game was a blast. We all thought it was going to be freezing, so dressed in tons of layers and came prepared with blankets, hand warmers, foot warmers, mittens, etc. It ended up being much warmer than we thought and we were all comfortable throughout the game. In fact, I don't think we ever even zipped up our coats (granted we had on several layers under our coats)!

It was also fun to see my college roommate Emily, even though it was only for a few minutes before we headed to the game. Emily was so sweet and brought us some popcorn for the game. She also took our picture... Here's some of the crew: Mike, Mandy, me, Jami, and Jason.
And here we are at the game - Kim, me, and Mandy. Our Broncos rocked once again and crushed the Aggies 52-21.

What's with me being the wide one in front of all the pics?? The camera totally adds like 15 lbs! ;)(that and my 47 layers!)
