Throwback Thursday: College Days

There are a few times in my life that I wish I could go back to and relive again for a moment. I'd love to go back and live parts of my childhood, when I had zero responsibility. I would also love to relive some fun times of Sam and I dating pre-mission. And I most definitely would LOVE to go spend time at college once again.

College years were some of the best years of my life. I am SO glad I decided to attend SUU while Sam was out on his mission. I was terrified to go down by myself, but I had experiences there I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. I came to know who I was. I learned how to rely on my Heavenly Father all on my own and really for the first time in my life chose church for myself. My testimony grew in leaps and bounds. Because of my choice in a dance degree, I was in the best shape of my life (which is always a nice plus) but most importantly I made friends that I will consider my best friends for the rest of my life.

I especially loved my last year of college. I had four amazing roommates  Jess, cousin Tif, and Mel. That last year, we had a blast. We gave ourselves pedicures at the beginning of the semester to prep me for Sam coming home. We made our costumes and dressed up as TMNT for Halloween, we immaturely dressed up as bandits and creeped out our neighbors, we had a blast at Institute classes, had our end of semester sleepover in our living-room. We watched and quoted The Office over and over and over again. And, at the end of the year my best friends threw me the best Bachelorette party ever-making our own shirts, heading to St. George, playing laser tag, singing Karaoke, and sleeping in a condo.

I sure miss those college days. And I sure miss those ladies.
Jessica P, Tiffa, Pookles Mel, and me.

So much love.

Won an award for our costumes. Most original maybe? I can't remember. And I was eating pizza. 

And now we both have real babies. Crazy!
