Tonight I went to dinner with Lindsay and Andi. We were all roommates in Provo at Charlotte’s Web. Yep, that was the name of the house we lived in. What? Your house doesn’t have a name? Are you crazy? Every house should have a name, right? Wait. Is that just a BYU Off-Campus Housing thing? Oh ya – I guess it is. Turns out my condo I recently bought is still nameless. Now taking suggestions – please submit to brigitteeppley.blogspot.com. The winner will receive…um…something great, I’m sure!
Crap, I got a little off track there for a minute. Anyway, we lived together at Charlotte’s Web (go ahead – guess why it was called that!) in…um…1996? Maybe it was 1997? Either way, either year – I loved living with these girls! They were always fun – and never any drama. All of you who have lived with multiple girls in a small apartment can attest to loving the semesters spent living with drama-free girls!
Just thinking about some of the fun times makes me laugh. Remember when our door got snow-packed? And, Andi’s duet with Matt singing “She sees a diamond.” I think that was the same ward activity where we all sang “We are Family.” Fun times! What about the night we went disco skating? I can vividly see Rob’s purple, stretchy, flared pants. Wow!! Those were…um…sexy! Remember how ridiculously dark Lindsay got from working at Seven Peaks? Let’s see, other memories that come to mind: The Manti Pageant. Andi’s cabin. My BMW. Lindsay’s yellow car. The day mine and Lindsay’s closet got flooded! Bug! How Linae used to color in Disney coloring books. I could go on and on…
I sit here now wishing I could go back to Provo, back to the BYU 57th Ward, back to Charlotte’s Web, back to the days of living with Lindsay and Andi in the basement of a house that was infested with spiders. Those were the days! Seriously, the biggest stress for me then was probably what to wear to church.
But then, at the same time, I love who I have become and I love my life now. The good news is, it is because of friends like Lindsay and Andi that I am who I am today. So – thanks girls!!
