Happy Independence Day!

This morning I was woken up by the boys making waffles. We used to cook all the time when we all lived in the same apartment complex, so this weekend has been good times. It is just like we are all roommates again, except that I have not been getting kicked out at midnight (for honor code). Since it is Independence Day, Lauren made sure we had a festive center piece and I made sure that we had festive toppings for our waffles.
*Side Note* We all totally forgot it was fast Sunday (except for Nate who just didn't say anything) until on our way to church. Oopps

Steve, Nate and I were going to go to the singles ward, but when we got there we saw a sign that they had moved to a different building. We ended up going to this random ward.  I always love singing the patriotic songs in sacrament meeting though.

When we got back, B-Rad helped me make my yummy homemade pizza which I have blogged about and made several times because it is so amazing. We also played Wii.... so we all now have characters on Brad's game. Below you will see.... Lauren, Brad, Nate (with sunburn), Steve and me.

We hung out and played card games (I would like to point out that I have won 3 different games that we have played so far- #1- "Things" #2- Phase 10 and #3- What time Steve was going to get in last night form making out with his Ex girlfriend who "just happens" to be in town the same time he is).

Then we went to see the fireworks. I LOVE to watch fireworks. I love being in California for this holiday and I love even more that I am spending it with some of my bestest friends!

It has been a great time being with the boys again. I was already friends with Lauren, but I like that we have become even better friends. She is awesome and so much fun. The only thing that would have made this weekend better is if Steve's ex girlfriend DID NOT come into town and steel our time away from Steve. Boooo..... she is a nice girl and everything, but doesn't like hanging out with us and makes it so Steve goes with her instead of us. But putting that aside, it has been an awesome weekend. Who knows when we will all be able to hang out all together again. I am actually surprised we have been able to do it so much thus far, but soon it will be a lot harder. Nate is getting married and Brad & Lauren will move back to the East Coast. So I gotta love the time that we get together. I do love these boys & Lauren.

Amazingly we have gotten pictures together every year for the past 6 years. Here is my post dedicated to them from last year. Changes since that post: Brad & Lauren got married and moved from NY to Newport Beach (which is where we are visiting) & Nate moved to AZ for law school.

Happy Independence Day everyone! Hope you had as marvelous of a day as I did!
