Emily I loved reading these! with regards to #67. I NEVER hated you! I always thought you were the coolest when we were hanging out. I was so sad when you went away to college, although I loved getting mail from you (I still have some of the a box..somewhere in my move and can't remember what box it's in.) I was sad that I didn't keep in touch with you when you went on your mission or afterwards, but I am very glad to chat with you now, even if it is through blogging. I suffer from this complex as well, and it does get challenging to get over sometimes...

For #80..I loved that Ska tape you made for me...until it melted
#81 When Sam and I lived in Utah when we were first married, we saw a car with the words written in large bold letters on the rear window of "I HATE UTAH DRIVERS" we laughed and laughed..because it's so true.

Just the other day Sam and I were talking about the "posse" we had when I was 17: you, me, Leigh, Rachel, and Lindsay..I told him about when we would all use our first and middle names when refering to one another...or walked around Girls camp with magic marker tattoos of: Keanu Reeves, Brad Pitt, Kelly Slater, and of course Lindsay's Rob Lay me.
I was remeniscing about when I first dyed my hair remember Glints? I'm still dying my hair red to this day..of course that's probably why its getting thinner.....I loved your post

Jamie J said...

I did this a few months ago too and it took me FOREVER! I loved reading all the things about you! But what??? No mention of your awesome roommate??? :)

Emily said...

Jamie, you and Amy were the most awesomely fun roommates! I have such great memories... like roommate night... swimming at sunset.... "An Affair to Remember".... the sunset that we saw that made us cry on the hike with the Jeremys .... all totally fabulous memories... good days!!!!

Emily said...

Katie... there are some great memories there.... I don't think about those days much... but it's always fun to remember... I mean doing fortunes was CLASSIC! I wonder what fortunes would be like now that most of us are married???

katieel said...

fortunes! I completely forgot about those...too funny....

Tinkerbell said...

some of us aren't married and we're still doing fortunes! hehee....i taught all the teenage sorensen girls how to do them 2 years ago on a camping trip.
