Camp Out.

So this weekend was a big weekend for the University of Utah. It was the Utes vs. the TCU horned frogs! This by far was the biggest game of the year, and even though we got killed, the festivities leading up to the game were unforgettable!

I forced Elise to sleep in a tent on cement in front of the stadium!

Ok, let me back up. So ESPN was coming to SLC. They were doing this event called "College Gameday" at 6:00am on saturday (the day of the game). So lots of people were camping out to be the first in line for the event, so they could get on tv. Something I have always wanted to do is camp out at the stadium for some event such as this, so of course I had to do it! And when I set my mind to something 9 out of 10 times I will make it happen. I am a stubborn girl.

So friday night after a great dinner at Sawadee with Warner, Elise and I met up and started to pack our tent and sleeping bags! Elise isn't much of a camper, so she was a little hesitant, but I dragged her anyway. We dressed in our warm, Ute clothes, and were on our way.

Of course we had to stop at Alberstons and spend 30 dollars on junk food and girl magazines.

We found a nice spot on the cement where we pitched the tent and set up camp. This is where the night began! We met some new friends, danced the night away, met up with old friends, pulled an all-nighter, and had SO much fun.

Here are some pictures of our adventure.

It was such a fun night and I know I will always remember that crazy night in college when I slept at the Stadium. GO UTES!!!!
