Roommate Reunion!

In August I was lucky enough to spend a few days with some college roommates from my first couple years at BYU.

We met in the DT dorms in S Hall in 1997 and became fast friends, then moved in together the next year at Liberty Square. It had been much too long since we'd all been together, so Alyssa flew in from London, Mel from Atlanta, and Sarah took a break from running Mitt Romney's campaign in Las Vegas to join us. We met up in Newport Beach for a few days of fun in the sun.

Tonya wasn't able to join us for the entire time but we did get to see her (and her adorable kids) for a little while.

It was great to reminisce about all the silly things we did back in the day. Man, was I ever dumb (and probably still am, but don't tell me if you agree.) :)

We spent a little time window shopping the first day in the cute little shops in Newport where I scored this awesome sun hat.

Then we drove to Long Beach and hopped on a ferry to Catalina Island.

William thought it was fun to ride on the big boat. Yes, he was the boy who crashed our girl time, but I couldn't leave him yet so he got to come on our trip. Thankfully everyone was a good sport about having a baby along for the ride.

Catalina was beautiful. I'd never been there before and it's easy to see why it was the playground of the movie stars back in the day.

We finally got some beach time while we were there. Will's favorite part of the adventure was, of course, the smoothies. Auntie Sarah got it for him and Auntie Melissa fed him the whipped topping, so he was in heaven. I had so much fun getting caught up with great friends and can't wait for the next reunion! Hopefully it won't take another several years for it to happen! Love you, Girlies!
