Flashback to 7K

This picture was taken right after my family helped me move into my apartment in St. George. They were getting ready to leave me  and drive back to SLC. I remember this night so clearly.. it was so weird to have that feeling of being on my own. When we said by my mom and dad both cried and I am pretty sure that made my sisters cry too. I guess I never thought of that day being emotional until it actually came and I was in that moment. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to live away from home for 2 1/2 years. It was such a great learning experience. I am also grateful that I have been home for that past year and that I still have 6 more months of seeing my family regularly. Once I get married Sean and I will be off on our own adventure and I know how much I will miss my family so for now I am just enjoying the time I have at home.

This week I want to flashback to my first year of college
Apt. 7K

I was so lucky to move down to college with 3 of my best friends and we were lucky enough that Alicia wanted to join us. I remember we were all really nervous because we didn't know how Alicia would fit in with us but seriously she made that experience 10X better.

I love Erin's face in this one haha

Oh that famous "BROOM GAME" we would meet new guys and make them play this. They would spin around and then do jumping jacks after.. I can't explain to you how hard we laughed over this but I will never forget it. But the best moment was when Alicia tried to run down the hallway after spinning and slammed straight into a door knob!

We always celebrated brithdays and had a blast! This picture was from Mal's birthday!
