BYU vs Ole Miss

We went to the BYU vs Ole Miss football game in September. It was a good game and we had a lot of fun spending time with one of Wes' old roommates from UCLA and his cute family.

The biggest shocker was the tailgating before the game. Mississippi is known for its tailgaiting and I must say there is nothing like it! I can't even describe the intensity, but there were hundreds of tents set up all over and thousands of people partying before (and after even though they lost) the big game.

They had a ton of food and alcoholic beverages and several even had tv's to watch other games before this one started! haha
Notice how everyone is dressed the same. All the men wear kaki shorts with a red polo and the girls wear semi-formal dresses!

The missionaries even made an appearance :)


In August, we went to Chicago for an orthodontic conference.
When we weren't learning all about the business of orthodontics, we were touring the city.
We walked up and down the magnificent mile
explored Navy Pier
checked out the bean (way cool)
ate the famous Chicago deep-dish pizza (my first time)
and my husband, being the beach boy that he is, of course found us a beach. So we just had to take our shoes off and walk through it :)
The weather was nice and it was a really fun trip!
