Friends, How Many of Us Have Them? (ooops, & Calendar Winners!)

Do you have any friends that you instantly felt connected to? A friend who you sometimes wonder if you're the same person because you're so similar, in so many ways? Not the same kind of friend as one you've known your whole life, but one you couldn't live your life without?



Our whole house is buzzing with joy because our good friend, the missing family member, is visiting from Nashville! Saying goodbye to her was the hardest thing about leaving our adopted hometown. Fortunately, our friendship stuck, and it's only grown stronger...and we've somehow managed to see each other many times in the 5 years since we've moved away.

Our girls were born the same month, and have developed their own sweet friendship. They've been flying to see each other since they were 3 months old (not unaccompanied, duh.)

And talk about a special relationship, she and my son fell in love when he was only 1-year-old! He served as the ring-bearer in her wedding, and she is his cherished Godmother.

Oh yeah, did I mention she's also a hair-stylist to the stars?!? Yep, we actually met because she did my hair...then discovered we went to the same church...and it took off from there. You may have heard of some of her clients....Kelly Clarkson and Sheryl Crow ring a bell? So while Mr. Sugarplum does a bang-up job, he doesn't compare to the 'Do' she'll be hooking me up with this weekend!

She and her sweet girl have been here since Wednesday, and it's been non-stop laughing, Mexican food, hair, American Girl store and cafe, field trips and fun! Here's hoping you're having a fabulous weekend surrounded by your favorite people too!

{Oh, and oopsie...sorry I forgot about the Calendar Winners yesterday, bleach must have soaked through to my brain. Random.com chose coolkids, Natalie Marie, and Kyra at Racks and Mooby....shoot me an email girls with your address and I'll pop the cute calendars in the mail for you.}

  1. That really is so sweet and let's be honest, good friends are *VERY* hard to find! (c: My best friend ever still has to be my little sister, Kara, and when she moved, it was so hard. Thank goodness we still get to see each other pretty often so we can get in some good shenaninganizing...
