I'm usually a strictly Oscars and Golden Globes kind of girl, but this opening number makes me wish I would have watched the Emmy's last night! For as much TV as I watch, maybe it's time I start tuning in every year
Natalie and I, along with Caroline, Taylor, and Laura, were roommates my junior year. They were all in the same sorority together, but I never once felt left out of anything. We took our initials and created the name "TANCD House." What adventures we had! From themed parties, to spilling bottles of wine on the carpet, to doing dance work out videos with the windows wide open so people would see us and laugh, there was never a dull moment.
This is a terrible picture of us, but it shows how far back we go. We were probably about 17 in this picture. Our group of friends was really innocent, so all we did in high school was go out to eat and shop. I believe at this particular occasion we were at Chilis, where both Haritha and Swampy wrote a note to our waiter telling him he was cute. We did things like this all the time. I know, we were ridiculously cool.
One of our nerdier past time spent together was in HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America). Don't judge, we went to a medical magnet school. The event we competed in was a four-person team event called HOSA bowl; it was basically like jeopardy, but medically related. I know, we just keep getting cooler! Here we are at one of our competitions, obviously working really hard.
Senior prom, crammed into our 24 person limmo.
High school graduation, ready to depart to our rival schools.
A Fab Four tradition during college was to get together during our Christmas breaks to eat dinner and have ice cream at Marble Slab. This was our first one, freshman year of college.
Haritha went to school in Austin, so as soon as all of us were 21 (wait...I take that back. We weren't all 21...certain other people used dishonest means to get into bars!) we took on 6th Street. We had THE best time.
To this day, whenever we're all in town together (and by all, I mean whenever I come in town since they all live in San Antonio now) we still honor our tradition. Don't know what I would do without these girls!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARITHA!
We saw Europe together after graduation.
This was probably one of the very first, if not first, pictures we ever took together. We met because our boyfriends were friends and later became roommates. Spending most of our time at their apartment, we quickly became the best of friends. Our major sources of entertainment consisted of laying around watching movies (with the boyfriends), bowling (with the boyfriends), and various other mundane activities. Let me say that I LOVE all of these activities (and she can attest to this as well), but the point is that we devoted EVERYTHING to those guys and never really got out and did things for ourselves. We ended up helping each other through both eventual breakups and came out winners.
