In August of 2006 a bunch of girls all moved into the Riviera. We all moved in, because it was the only place available after trying other apartment complexes. (I guess we all procrastinated finding a place to live that summer.) We lived there for 2 years, some staying the whole time and some moving out for missions and other opportunities. These girls are some of my best friends. Last night was the first time we have all been together in a long time.
It began with 6, and in the end there were 10 of us. So many fun memories with these girls. I remember being so sad as we all moved out in the summer of 2008.
Here's a little trip down memory road:
This is one of the first pictures of us together. For some reason we were all a little quiet at first, some more than others. But eventually all of our true colors came out. This is the original 112.

On Sunday afternoons you could find us doing a variety of things including playing phase 10, eating ice cream out of the same container (rainbow berry sherbet was my favorite) or watching Pride and Prejudice. On this day, we decided to pile all of our blankets, pillows, and cushions. We spent a good hour jumping and diving off of the couches.

I don't remember why, but we decided to sleep outside on our balcony. We made a hut (we did this a lot in our living room) and set up a movie. We thought this would be a good idea, but when we woke up, our kitchen table and chairs were in the outside commons set up for breakfast. Amongst other pranks that boys in our ward had done to us in the middle of the night.

During the time we lived together, both Ashley and Jaimee left us to go on missions. This picture is before Jaimee left. We all met at Brick Oven one last time. Alisha and Patrick were pretty serious at this time, so he was invited as another roommate. Summer of 2008

Here are some of the roommates and a good friend from the Riv, Jody (who should've been a roommate) at my bridal shower in 2009.

Conference weekend in October, we got together for dinner and a little girls night. It was fun to be together after not seeing each other for a while. Oct. 2009
Too bad we didn't have a get together in 2010. Ooops!
Last night we got together for dinner and it was so much fun. One of the main reasons that we got together is because Justine will be moving to New York for her internship. We are all so excited for her, but will miss her tons! We have all grown and changed a lot in the past 5 years, but it also seemed like we were just living together.
