Thai Food & Camping

Last week I struggled with wanting to cook. Each day while in my classes I would dread having to go home and prepare dinner, and I seriously feel guilty about it! Growing up I think that was the question my mom asked my family the most, "What do you want for dinner?", I totally understand her now. It might not even be the cooking part of it, but the decision making that makes it hard. I also think having an empty fridge and cupboards made it hard for me to want to cook because I had nothing to make! Jordan was working until midnight and 10pm so I skipped dinner altogether most nights. He totally spoiled me on Friday and took me out to Thai food. It's our favorite little hole-in-the-wall restaurant here in Rexburg. The service is always awkward, the walls are a hideous bright yellow, but we feel special because we sit at the same table every time! It's great. 
Does anyone else have a quirky restaurant they love?

Last night I got my cooking desire back and made the most awesome dinner! I'm still thinking about it! 
I skipped the crushed red pepper and put a slice of parmesan bread right under the tomatoes. 

So Saturday we were invited to go camping at Lava near Pocatello with Megan and Justin and three other couples. The Fleckners, and two Hyder couples! It was a blast, and so fun to get out of town. The highlight of the camping trip for me was making S'mores! I love that treat!

We were neighbors for a night:)

The drive up was truly gorgeous, we've had a lot of rain here lately so all the hills were very vibrant green and the sky cloudless. A perfect day for camping. Oh and one more awesome thing that happened last week... I stopped using my walking boot! Yay!! It feels good to be free!

The Ice Cream shop we got square ice cream (its just a square ice cream scoop), and cooled down after swimming in the hot springs.
So I'd say we had a pretty awesome weekend. This week has been slammed though with school work. I'll post again soon, for now I need to read Mockingjay! It's getting really good.
