Ahhh...JCPenney...The Good Old Days!

We had a little JCPenney reunion last night. Right after High School, my friend Melissa and I tried finding a job for weeks. Finally, we found the perfect one for us: The JCPenney Support Line! We were so excited (& pathetic) that we started dancing and celebrated by buying a Rainbo Snow. We were dorks...

I met a few people through out my time there, but these girls were my closest friends out of the bunch! We started reminiscing last night about the good old days; the funny (& strange) people, painting our fingernails, coloring, eating dry cereal, and so many other fun things. We really did have a great time and it made going to work a little easier...for me anyway.

Last night we went to the Mandarine for dinner. One of my all time favorite places to eat! Dinner didn't disappoint, except for Beth's noodles. Sorry Beth! After gorging ourselves with chinese food, we thought we would add a few extra pounds and head over to Firehouse Pizza to devour our own little FH'zzookies. This was a first for me and the only question I have is, 'why did I wait this long to try one?!?' They were the cutest most delicious things I have ever eaten. It has even surpassed my Molten Lava Cake fetish and that's saying something. And thanks to Melissa for paying for dessert! It is a true friend that will buy you a little piece of heaven!!!
Julie, Beth, Me, and Melissa. I love this picture of us (even if you girls thought I was a nerd for wanting to take one!) and I love that we were able to get together after so many years. We are now all married with children and enjoying this new stage of our lives. It is weird to think back on our single, childrenless days at the JCP. Fun times. Fun times.

Thanks girls for a great night! I am already looking forward to another girls night which HAS to include another trip to Firehouse!

Cute picture! That is so fun that you still stay in contact with your old friends and go out together. Where is this Firehouse place..wait...you better not tell me.

You look way cute in that pic. Does Trent hate it since I would totally wear that shirt?

I love that you're so good at keeping in touch with your friends. I am awful and keeping up with people. Blogs are the best thing to ever happen to my social life.

My brother worked there for a while too ~ were you there at the same time?

And, I love your shirt. Did you get it at Old Navy? I think I saw one like that there and I was going to try it on but didn't, but now that I see how cute it is on you I may have to go back! (Not that it will look as cute on me!)

Sarah, I got the shirt at TJ Maxx in St. George and it is my new FAVORITE shirt. Sometimes shopping a lot pays off! I think I saw the ones you are talking about at Old Navy. I bet they would be just as cute!

And I don't think I was there when your brother was there. I didn't last too long...Melissa was probably still there though.

Dessert was good wasn't it??? You better call me when you need a fix. I'll drop what ever I'm doing and meet you there. I look like a ghost next you you. I need sun. Thanks for calling me a dork. I guess that's why we get along so well. Can't wait for next week.

Did you know or work with a Fred Farley or his daughter, Jody? They both worked the JCPenney support line. Just wondering.

Good times, I totally remember you two working there. Funny thing is that it doesn't seem that long ago but I guess a lot has transpired since then. That's a way cute picture of you, love that shirt too.

Gotta love the girls night out! We went to Firehouse last night and it was awesome! I stuffed myself because I knew I was starting a diet today... I know pathetic!

4 Days without shopping! So proud!

Thanks for the shout out about my noodles. They weren't so bad. I seemed to have scarfed down the leftovers with no problem. Thanks again for a fun night!
