The other night I met up with some of my SUU roomies. Of the 12 of us, 3 (maybe 4) of us are still in Utah. Camille is in southern California, Wendy is in Northern California (I think, we haven't talked to her for awhile), Jaime is in Nevada, Ali and T are in Arizona, Adrian is in Florida, Kristy is in Idaho, Becky is in Montana, Demaree, Helen and I are in Utah and I think Sally may still be here, but none of us have talked to her for years, I've tried to locate her, actually did, but never heard back from her.

Anyway, Demaree, Adrian, Ali and I met up on Thursday night and went to dinner and a movie. We went to PF Changs for dinner and then out to Jordan Commons to see Harry Potter.

It is so fun to reminisce about the good old days! We were not talking about who is dating who and which club we are going to this friday night. Or who is getting what grade from what professor, or what is going on on campus. We weren't impersonating our SBO's "Let's rock the house!" Nor were we trying to figure out how we were going to get to the grocery store that day. Instead, we were talking about our cute husbands and our incredible kids, our hectic schedules and our broken cars. We were talking about our finances and how we make it paycheck to paycheck. Of the four of us, two of us have husbands in school (me and Ali) One of us is in school (Demaree) and all of us are pretty much in the same place in our life. Adrian is the Relief Society President (not a surprise), Demaree is a counselor in the primary presidency. Ali drives a suburban! (That is a surprise - to me anyway) Between the four of us we have TEN kids! Between the 12 (all the roomies) we have 17 kids (that I know of).

WOW how times have changed! But you know, it doesn't seem like it has been that long, in a lot of ways it feels like just yesterday I lived in Cedar City. I do have to say, I don't know where I would be or who I would be if it weren't for these girls! (yes, girls, I can't bring myself to call us ladies or women, because I still feel like we are 18) Cedar City was one of the best times of my life, and I am so blessed that I have such wonderful friends and that we stay in contact. And you know what? I know that we will always be close.

How fun! I meet with some friends once a month (we worked together many years ago). It is nice to keep in touch and support each other. Sometimes it might feel hard to schedule this into your your busy schedule, but you deserve this "girl" time.

You're awesome! I almost cried reading that. It makes my heart ache for when we were 18. I had a great night. Sorry I split without saying goodbye. My mom is a jealous woman of my time. Thanks a ton!
