Coco's Restaurant & Sorority fun...

I will blog more about my Mesquite trip, but I am too tired tonight, so for a quick post, I decided to post a few memories that came to mind this weekend...I almost always am thinking about blue dots, but what triggered the desire for this post was a song I heard in Coco's restaurant in Las Vegas, NV over the weekend...Georgia On My Mind....here goes:

Ok, after I had to leave Snow College in March 1990, I ended up at the Salt Lake Community College institute, yes, just the institute! I loved this place, it was my home away from home for about 7 years! Bro Hatch was the absolute best!!! I miss him...

I quickly discovered Lambda Delta Sigma, the LDS Sorority. I pledged and became a member in spring 1990. I was a member when I went on my mission in 1992-1993. I came home from my mission and was finally blessed with the opportunity to be an officer, thanks Michelle!!! What an awesomely amazing year that was, 1994/1995! This is one of our officer pictures:



It was during this time (summer 1994, I think), 6 of us piled into my Geo Metro and went downtown to the Michael Bolton with Celine Dion as the opener....talk about getting a bang for your buck! I won't go into details but suffice it to say I don't think any of us will forget about the connection between our pre-concert meal at Subway and having Michael Bolton sing Georgia on My Mind about 7 rows in front of us! Right, Heidi? We were 7 rows up from the floor and at one point he disappeared from the stage, we were thinking just to change clothes or whatever, but then, out of no where, he was right there 7 rows in front of us and he just happened to sing that song! We laughed and loved it!!! Who was it all that went? Michelle W, Heidi S, Janice Y, Becky H, Lori U and myself? Is that right girls, help me out here...

On another occasion, we were at an officer's retreat at Snowbird when one of our own had an experience that many of us will not soon forget! In fact, I have a BLUE bowling ball that became known as THE BLUE DOT to many of us...I still use that ball to this day and every time, I think of my good friend Janice and our wonderful time together as sorority sisters! Ah, the little things that remind me of A LOT!!! I love you all....are we ever going to get together for a reunion??? Let me know the time and place, I'll be there!

Coco's has really good food. My mom enjoyed the tortilla soup. I had a hard time deciding between the Turkey Avacado Jack Croissant or the California Chicken Sandwich. Both sandwiches are pictured here. I went with the latter and it was a good choice. It is delicious.

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, I left Snow College because I ran out of money for school...
