Roommate Reunion

 I just returned home from a wonderful weekend with three of my favorite people ...

Katie, Shelley, Me, and Briana
... make that FIVE of my favorite people!

Katie, Shelley, Briana and I met our freshman year at BYU in 2001.  Since that year, we have been roommates and close friends.  Since we are all turning 30 this summer, we decided it was high time we get together again.  I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to stay in touch with these amazing women.  We met up in New Canaan, CT and spent the weekend enjoying being under the same roof again since college.  We were joined by Shelley's son Stephen and Briana's daughter Emmaline.  Those kids could not be any cuter!

I would have been happy spending the whole weekend catching up at Shelley's home in CT, but we were able to escape to the city for a very fun girls' evening out.  It had been 4 years since I left NYU, and it was great to be back.

We met up with Rebecca from freshman year, as well, to have pizza at Nizza in the Theater District.

Crumbs cupcakes was a must on my list of dessert places to hit while in the city!

We ended our evening in the city by going to see Newsies on Broadway!  The singing and dancing were incredible.  I'm so impressed by the talents of others and grateful for the opportunities we have to see them shared.

March 10 was Katie's half-birthday and, though we did it a couple of days late, the rest of us wanted to celebrate Katie by making a little blanket and sharing just a few of the reasons we love her.

Before leaving for the airport on Tuesday, we stopped at Stew Leonard's, an amazing farm fresh food store complete with a mascot and animated characters.  It was a blast!

All in all, the weekend went by much too quickly.  I left CT anxious for our next reunion and thinking of all the other friends and family I am blessed to have in my life.  I am excited for the years ahead and the opportunity I'll have to follow the lives of these friends.  Thank you, Brie, Shelley, and Katie, for the perfect weekend.  Here's to many more!
