MEme Monday---Friends Edition

It is Monday once again and Supah Mommy and Mommy Brain are taking us back to one of my all time favorite shows....Friends! The prompt is below the beautiful picture of Supah and Mommy Brain hanging with their Friends :)

Pick One:

1. What Friends character(s) best describes you. Why?

2. What Friends character(s) are most NOT like you . Why?

3. Your favorite episode of Friends, Why?

4. In Real LIfe Friends: who , what, where, when, why... etc.

5. The kindest thing a friend ever did for me.

6. What kind of friend are you? Why?

7. re-live a friend moment from childhood

This prompt is coming at the perfect time for me :) I had been wanting to do a shout out to my bestest friend for awhile now and I feel this is the perfect opportunity. So I guess I am going with number FOUR :)

Believe it or not my BF L and I met while watching an episode of Friends in our Freshman Dorm Lounge! Isn't that crazy!?!?!? It was during a commercial for the upcoming Ms. America Pageant, when I said to my psycho-crazy roommate, "I know Ms. New Hampshire." to which L cried out, "I live in NH!" It was at that moment, that connection....that we were bonded for life!

Over the past 14 years we have been through so much together.....we roomed together in college for 3 years, have been through way too many boyfriends to count (which led to way too many painful break ups), fought like sisters, took an awesome trip to CA where she ended up on stage with Bob Barker on the Price is Right and days later we ran for our lives from killer Elephant seals, shared an addiction for Friends, the original 90210 and N'Sync (we saw them in concert two times), our weddings (she did the sermon at mine and I did a toast at hers) and now our children are able to grow up together (we only live 35 min. apart). We have had quite a fun ride, thus far and I believe we have helped each other to grow into the people we are today. L is more that my best friend--she is part of my family.

There are so many things to love about L. She is a hopeless romantic, a fabulous decorator, very energetic and enthusiastic (she use to be a cheerleader in college), a great dancer, very smart (she is a pharmacist) and a wonderful mother. The one thing that I love most about her is that she cares so much for her family and close friends. We come first to her and there isn't anything that she wouldn't do for us. I am so blessed to have her as a part of my life.

L, I am so happy
that Friends brought us together and that I am able to celebrate you today :) We have 14 years of great memories and I hope that we will spend the next 60 years making many more. I love you and want to thank you for being you!!

I love this story! It's nice to have a long time friend live so close and have your kids growing up together. That's awesome.

BTW, we made "Raising Z cake" (we had lots of questions about the name of the cake and the comment of the night was..."I don't even taste the raisins!") it was great...thanks again for the recipe!


i did not watch friends b/c i don't like being a follower - not really i just couldn't get into it so i'm kind of out of the loop on this one but it's great to hear of your wonderful friendship
