Never in my life would I have thought I'd live/go to college in Idaho. Honestly, I'm not quite sure how I ended up here. Well maybe it's the fact that it was the only college I applied to. Not because BYUI was the only school I wanted to go to...but somehow I ended up here :)

Living in Idaho for the past 4 years (I can't believe it's been that long!) I've discovered major pros and cons of life in potato country.

Here's my list:

GORGEOUS scenery
Yellowstone is only a few miles away
No city pollution
The yummiest potatoes eva
Summer days aren't too hot, and summer nights are sooo nice
Low crime rate
Super nice people

It's freezing from October well into Spring. I had to wear my winter jacket today to run errands
Crappy snowy roads
No legit Mexican food places
I miss my black folks! Seeing a black person here is like finding a piece of pepper in a glass of milk. I need diversity
No public outdoor swimming pools
The fruit is not as good as Texas fruit
The closest GOOD mall is 4 hours away in Salt Lake. But not having a mall close by has helped with my shopping addiction
Being soo far away from my family. No bueno

Just came across your blog and noticed that you guys got married the same month as me and my husband. =)
I dislike the cold weather and snowy roads too. Give me summer please

Idaho sucks. Well, I haven't actually been there, but anywhere without good Mexican food sucks. The low crime rate and lack of pollution sound pretty appealing though! Freezing cold weather...not so much.
