But every so often, my teammates from Western will plan a get-together to watch our old team, Western Wyoming Spartans (now Mustangs...Spartans was way cooler), take on our coach's team now, Salt Lake Community College. Quite a few of us are still around this area, so we planned a get-together when WWCC played SLCC the end of September, so we actually had a great turnout this year. I hadn't planned on going this year, as I hadn't in years past, but my sister Kandyce texted me one day asking if I wanted to go, because one of our teammates, Katie, who lives in Cache Valley, was planning on going and could give me a ride. I said sure, and I'm so glad I did.
Katie and I met up with my roommate my freshman year and also teammate, Jackie, and then continued with her. We met a few of the other girls at Cafe Rio before the game, then headed to the gym. It's been a very long time since I've seen a lot of those girls. I think Katie & Jess Jeppsen (who actually wasn't there) are the only two I've actually seen in the past 5 years. The others I keep in touch through facebook, but even then it's just liking photos, stalking statuses, etc. It was really good to see all of them. I think we were only missing 3? It was fun too, because my sister was also there with her two kids so I got to see them as well.
Kandyce, Stormy, Thermop, Brooke, Suey, BCuzz, Chels, Katie, Jackie, me & Alyssa (missing Meg, Jess J, Jess Wilson, Hilary & Kylee)
After the game we all headed to Leatherby's where we enjoyed delicious desserts (and I got to spend time with Liam & Myka)
I may, or may not have eaten the majority of this....Liam helped a little...
Roomies!! Jackie, me & Jess
Me, Jess W, Katie & Meg from way back when...
It was a fun night. Fun seeing and talking with old friends & teammates, watching volleyball, and spending time with my sister and her kids.
The highlight was towards the end of the night. When we were getting ready to pay for our desserts, I was just looking around, eyes wandering, when I noticed a table that had a girl and three guys. The kid with his back towards me was wearing a sweater vest, and I knew immediately who it was. I couldn't believe it, of all the places we both were that evening, it was my co-worker friend Caleb, who ditched us and moved to Murray to take a position there. What are the chances? I went over and talked to him, and I think he was as shocked to see me. It was pretty funny.
Yes, I took a picture of him stalkerishly. There was a guy behind me as I was taking the picture, and it was my turn next to pay, so I waved to the guy and said, "Go ahead, I'm just stalking this kid real quick."
Highlight of my night!
