I hung out with my best and oldest friend on Wednesday. I don't mean old as in age but oldest as in I've known her since 8th grade. We did gymnastics and cheer leading in high school together. We were neighbors and she used to pick me up every day from school our Senior year in high school and we explored the night life of Tijuana together in college. She's moved away and come back and them moved away again but we have always stayed in touch. That's not something I can say about too many friends in my life. She came to visit in 2009 and the last time I saw her was my wedding two years ago in 2010 and even then I didn't really get to see her, see her what with the whirlwind that day was.
I got off work a little early so I could spend a few extra hours with her. We met at the mall of course. Shopping is our thing. Then we went to dinner and she came over to see our new house, eat some dessert and see Mj. She actually met him before I did and if it weren't for her we wouldn't have even met. She gave me the best gift ever the day she met him while they were both in Arizona and told him "Hey, you need to meet my friend." She's that friend that you can meet up with to go shopping at Walmart or invite over to watch old 80's movies in your pajamas. That friend that you can talk for hours on end with about nothing and have no secrets from. I've never had very many friends and even of the ones I have had in my life she's the only one who I have that kind of relationship with. I feel like she's one of my sisters. Chances are I won't see her for about three more years because now that she's finishing up her Army adventure she's moving to Alaska. Yep. Never a dull moment with her. And wouldn't you know it I forgot to take a picture? I was so mad when I realized that. It was a really nice visit and it was so good to see her. It's a bummer that we don't get to see each other more often but I'm so glad to have a friend like her in my life.
