then and now

Nicole, Camille, Heidi, Heidi and Me

This is a picture of my girlfriends from high school.  Here we are in front of the beautiful waterfall at the Oasis Resort & Spa in Mesquite.  This is where I spent every Spring Break in High School and my first year of college.  There are many more cheesy pictures like this one.  Each one perfectly posed on the landscapes of the infamous Oasis Resort.
   
Tangent Questions:  Where was Natalie?  Why was Dani never with us?  

Anyway, this picture was the closest replica that I could get to our most recent picture together.  I think we've all improved.  I sure hope I have!

14 Years Later...

Dani, Heidi, Nicole, Camille, Heidi & Me

Here we are now.  Of course, the other Hooper is still MIA (we missed you, Nat).  We are all a little older, a little wiser and much, much cuter!  Seriously, aren't these women gorgeous?  I'm so lucky to still be friends with these girls.  Not because of their good looks, but because of who they really are.  I am grateful for the many years of memories that we made together.  These girls have helped shape me into the person I am today.  They are amazing and each one of them has changed my life in some way.  I'm so proud of all of our accomplishments, achievements and successes over the years. It's incredible to see how far we've all come.

  Ladies, here's to the next 14 years!

Oh my gosh, can you say fake bake. Yikes, I don't think I've been that tan since. Hmmm....maybe that's why I have Mellanoma now. What a great picture though. Our lips definitley got a workout on those Spring Breaks HAHA!~I think Natalie's missing because she had Staph Infection and had to fly home, remember. And Dani....probably with Billy :) You're right though, each one of us has helped create the women we have become, and I must say we've all done well. Thanks for the kind post. It was great spending time with you.

I have to agree - you all look better now than in High School and you were darling then. What beautiful women you have become. I miss the days of having you at my house all talking at the same time.

What do you get when you add a boyfriend that you spend every minute with and then add in overprotective parents too? NO CHANCE at a week long vacation with High School friends to Las Vegas. Are you kidding me?! I cannot believe you girls got to do that! Envious...the memories you create on getaways like that...

Guess I will just stick with my girls camp memories...:)

Thanks for including me in the after pictures! I sure love the time I get with you girls. Thanks for your friendship!

I did leave early sick. I remember thinking my life was over because I was going to miss out on something fun. I did however miss out a couple of weeks ago. I swear I never am in Utah at the right time. By the way Brittany-your hair is gorgeous!
