Reunited and it feels so good

I am 10,000 shades of excited today because my best friend is coming to visit tomorrow. She's leaving her little nugget with the grandparents for the weekend for an adults-only one away in Atlanta. 

I saw Kayla at the end of January so it may not seem like THAT long ago but when it's one of your favorite people in the world, its' a LONG time. Kayla is my friend that I am so much alike and the kind I can be so honest with. I never feel like I have to pretend even the slightest bit with her. 

If we lived in the same town, I could so see us being those neighbors that lived down the street from one another. The kind that didn't knock when they came over. The kind that goes grocery shopping together or goes for runs together in the mornings. 

I think sometimes the part of college we take most for granted is not the absence of a 9-5 schedule, all the growth and learning you get while there or the daily naps - it's living 10 feet from your best friends! 

So I am so excited for a weekend of dressing up, shopping, spa days and pedicures and dinners out with my bestie.

She is the Ethel to my Lucy

The Laverne to my Shirley

The Snooki to my JWoww..only much classier - and with underwear. 
Nicole Polizzi Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley have some cocktails together.  Before long, Snooki gets into an argument with a nearby table. 

Aaaaaaand added weekend bonus?! I get to see one of my all-time favorite blog friends as well - the fabulous Julie Minton. Does this have amazing weekend written all over it or no?! 
we Will be discussing this!

What are you all up to this St. Patty's weekend? 

XO, A

That sounds like a really amazing weekend. Everyone who knew us called my college BFF and I Laverne and Shirley. :) Have a great time! Wait, so she is a Gamecock too? Yuck. Go Tigers (my alma mater). And... did your dad go to Notre Dame (wears that shirt in your "about")?? My hubby is from South Bend, but came south for Death Valley.

Going to an art show tonight, tee-ball wee ball (t-ball for 3 year olds) tomorrow and running a half on Sunday.
