2. a waffle wednesday reunion

the waffle wednesday girls: nathalie, ingrid, nadia (in the convertible dress i made her for her birthday!), and me

the "waffle wednesday" thing requires some explanation, i'm sure. there are four of us in this "group". nadia and i met at freshman orientation, then we met ingrid when we joined student government, then ingrid and i met nadia's sister nathalie. we all clicked and hung out a lot...mostly to talk, eat, and watch audrey hepburn movies, musicals, and tv on dvd. one of our favorite shows to watch?

"dead like me".

the characters always met at a waffle house, and one day after watching, nathalie had a craving for waffles so we went to IHOP.

thus began the start of "waffle wednesday" (even though after that first night, no one ever actually really ordered waffles). it was a great excuse to just eat and gossip.

we kept this tradition up for a long time, until nathalie graduated may 2008. then everyone got busy and our schedules got confusing. but finally, we were able to get together and celebrate nadia's birthday this weekend.

it was the first time all four of us had hung out since december 2008 for our christmas dinner! geez. it was really fun though and we had lots of catching up to do. we threw nadia a birthday party on saturday, then took her out to FraƮche for some fondue (or "chocolate-y fondue tower of goodness", as nathalie put it) and drinks. oh, and we also had this chocolate strawberry tart thing that came with basil (yes, basil) gelato. it was weird. nadia wore the convertible dress i made her and really seemed to like it.

then we went to this place down the street for delicious, fluffy, buttery biscuits with honey (sounds strange, but it's really good. promise!) and eventually ended up at the Burbank Bar & Grill for some karaoke.

...except we were all pretty wimpy and only nadia had the guts to sing ("summer lovin" from grease. ha! since none of us were brave enough to sing with her, the karaoke host offered to do it).

it was a good weekend. i didn't even realize how much i missed it being just the four of us.

(oh, and how come no one carded us?? what's the fun in being 21 if no one asks you for your i.d.? i mean, if we had known it was this easy, we could've gone to these places way before we turned 21. i hope this doesn't mean we look old or anything.)
