Memory Maker...A Meme of Sorts

I've seen this on the blogs of a few other people and thought it was kind of fun. Reading the comments is the exceptionally entertaining bit. Here's what you do:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

One of my first memories of you was you laying on mom's lap breast feeding while she typed. I remember wondering how it was possible. Your little legs were just kicking out to the side and mom wasn't hanging on to you...but you were obviously hanging on to something of hers! ;) This story may help confirm mom's claim of you ruining her breasts! ;)

I also remember waking up in the middle of the night and looking down from my top bunk to see you standing in your crib staring at me like the exorcist baby! Scared the crap out of me! You would have been just over a year old then. I think you just didn't want to sleep anymore and wanted someone to talk to. :)

I also remember you running in through the kitchen door (the one that ALWAYS slammed shut) into your room screaming "see-mo-sam" over and over because you didn't want to do what dad was asking you to. :) You were smiling too!!

I remember seeing you reading A LOT. Just laying on your bed reading. I should've guessed early on you would be a English major! :)

Sadly...I remember teasing you relentlessly. I was SO mean to you...I apologize yet again! If it other little sister got the brunt of some of it too!

I remember our late night talks, improv dancing, and singing Chess at the top of our lungs. That will always be OUR duet to me! :)

I like this game...I could go on forever. :)

One of my best memories of you is the first time we were going to spend the night at your house. Alice, Jennifer, Kristy, and I all asked our parents and got our stuff. We walked all the way to your house and you said "Wait here I need to ask my parents." We were so worried that they would say no. If my memory serves me I think they tried. We ended up staying and we ate popcorn with nacho cheese dip. The next morning we woke up to Bevan saying "Who ate my donuts? Brooke was it you?"

Also all the Park City trips. The Mother Ship. We all had such good time together.

I just remember this here blog was love at first read because the first few posts of yours I read were so insightful and interesting. They have continued in that tradition.

lol, my Sister has this one too!

I remeber the first time we went on a Visiting Teaching Adventure to Appleby's. We were all wary about what we should order to drink. But then we were all relieved because we all like the caffine. I got the most unhealty mac and cheese with stuffing thing and you ordered a WW salad. Good times.

Wow. Could I misspell any more words?? Lol, I’m special.

I remember you being one of the first people in the singles ward to talk to me, which I so appreciated, and thinking that we could be friends...I was right! You're awesome!
My favorite memory was probably choreographing and dancing the New Kids number for the ward talent show. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who couldn't move the next day.
I also loved browsing Youtube videos with you and Alice and laughing til my guts hurt. Ah... good times....I miss you.

All I need to say is "The ALCAN!!" I think you know the story. "That darn cat!!!" At least I am a little bit milder now, in my old age.

By the way, there are too many great experiences to write.

I racked my brain (which isn't hard to do) and couldn't think of any first memories. You were kind of just there. I remember hanging out with your older sisters and you were such a fun kid. Always chatting with curls that NEVER stopped. Aren't you glad you discovered product?

I am so jealouse!

I fear mine is a memory I still feel bad about to this day. I remember the cute little 2 year old you. I used to play dead, you used to come and poke me, and poke me, and tell me to get up and play with you. I'd hold out just long enough, and then I would wake up with a start and growl and you would yelp, laugh in a highly stressed sort of way and run into other room.

Alas, I liken the above to when I used to feed the other 3 kids lemon juice just to see the faces they'd make. Maybe mom should have waited a few years to have me babysit eh?

oh goodness I am behind!

So, if we go with early memories I would agree with Heidi, that first sleep over sticks out.

but then... (forgive me if this gets too lengthy)

there was girls camp (no not again!)

walking between our houses and "meeting" at the street light

getting pulled over "citizen's arrest" in the church parking lot when you were just learning to drive with Ashley laughing at the lady in the back

hanging out in your apartment with Wendy and Heidi

the big panties (see Heidi's comments)

Denny's after Tuesday night class

Library dates-- we totally loved college and are all the more nerdy for it

speaking of nerds, the star party with all the "interesting" physics majors

Hiking, blazing our own trail, searching for a waterfall, you eating it froggy style on the way down

late night swimming at your moms

pouncing on you in your sleep, only to find you were dreaming about a tiger and I nearly gave you a heart attack

apartment hunting (yuck I hate that)

Tuesday night institute

awkward single's ward moments (thank you friend, that we are in this together)

the list, you can see can go on and on. I am so glad you are my best friend and love that we have so many memories together... the good, bad, and the ugly.
