But for Lib, Bran, Karm, Min, and Kat, here you go!
Ooh, and I can see the red foot pillow. Who's was red? Katy's?
Brandy and I are cuddling and keeping warm at a bonfire excursion. At least, that is what I think this was.
I love this picture. I'm the one in the disco diva jumpsuit. Honestly, I'm only posting it to show how skinny I used to be. The guys in this picture were our FHE brothers. And the 3 blind mice were our FHE sisters. One of the brothers married one of the sisters. I don't really know what Karma's costume was. Katy and Brandy are Belle/Beauty and the Beast.
Finding Katy doing handstands in random places was another common scene for us. So was our overly decorated walls with stupid quotes. It was a wall of shame in a way. Every time we said something funny or stupid we would memorialize it by putting on the wall. As you can see in the background, we said a lot of stupid, I mean funny, things.
Another common scene- roommate dogpiles, and sharing clothes. Brandy is in my dress, I'm in Karma's shirt. Katy is Brandy's shirt. etc, etc.
Also, I see Libby's light green foot pillow. I miss our old foot pillows.
Another dogpile. Karma is wearing my sweater. Someone's foot pillow is in the background too.
This picture probably does set us apart from many college coeds. We faithfully would get up at 6:30 every morning and have roommate prayer and a scripture together. Libby had a 7 am class, so we all got up together before she left. Normally we didn't fall asleep on the floor right after our prayers, but sometimes... well, sometimes we did.
The six of us were all very different girls. From Katy's Seattle grunge to Karma's Southern Belle, to Libby's (dare I say it?) Utah Molly Mormon ways. But we got along very well. We had our bumps along the way, but for the most part, we were a very close knit group of girls. That was a rough year for each of us in our own different ways. All 6 of us had a major life changing event or decision to get through. I think the fact that we all made it through with our sanity in check says a lot. One thing we always did was throw huge birthday parties for each other. This picture was at my 20th birthday party. I was so sick and miserable. I still remember it as the worst head cold I have ever had. I couldn't even hear I was so congested. It was awful. Oh, and there was a massive blizzard going on outside. But when your roommates get you a date for your birthday, you go, right? And when you get home from your date you will find about 100 ward members and cousins hiding in your house for a surprise party, in spite of the blizzard of snow outside. This is my favorite picture of the group of us because it was so sweet of them to try so hard to give me a birthday party in spite of how sick I was, and what major life events had just happened in a few of our lives.
Okay, one last picture. This would be the thing that did set us apart from all other coeds. We had foot pillows. It all started with Libby's foot pillow. We all loved it and shared it. So it became tradition to have Libby's sister make one for each of our birthdays. The pillows matched our personalities. Mine was blond.
So Lib and Bran- I want to see your pictures!! I know you have them.
