Roomies Reunite!

This past weekend my college roommate, Jennie and I abandoned our hubbys and kids and took a road trip to Boise to reunite with our old roomies, Jennifer and Michelle. We were the original 4-some that started our Freshman years at BSU. It was so great to be all together again. Something that hasn't happened in almost 11 years.

Jennie, Me, Michelle, and Jennifer (I can't figure out why my pictures have only the top half showing, but at least you can see our faces.)

We all met for dinner and desserts at the Cheesecake Factory. (I love that place!) We visited there for almost 3 hours then decided to drive around town and campus and reminisce.

Michelle and Jennifer sitting in the back seat of the chat-mobile.

We ended up chatting in the silly car for another 3 hours!! Why we didn't go back to the hotel and sit on a couch is beyond me, but it was a great time catching up with each other anyhow. I must say that the kink in my neck is STILL here from having turned around to face the back seat, but it was worth it.

Afterwards, (it was midnight, I can't remember the last time I stayed out til midnight and played with friends.) Jennifer and Michelle drove to their homes (poor Michelle had a 1 1/2 hour drive) and Jennie and I went back to the hotel room. It was just like the good ol' college days sharing a room together. It was a lot of fun.

We slept in the next morning (another I-don't-remember-when) and then hit the stores. We hit the $5 racks at the Children's Place and came home with bags of goodies for our kids. We shop-shop-shopped, made a visit to Jennifer's house, ate lunch at Cafe Ole, shop-shop-shopped some more, a little more shopping at the outlet mall, and then made our way home.

On the way home a stinking rock, chipped Jennie's windshield and it instantly cracked a good 4-5 inches. It was SUCH a bummer. She and Adam just bought the new BMW and it was so sad to get a crack in her pretty car. I hate rock-chipped roads!

Anyway, a big THANK YOU to all the hubby's who stayed home with the kids and let the girls get out and play for a day. Next year we're staying two nights and we're ALL staying in the hotel!!! (A little more spending $$$ might not be too bad either. :) )
