friends and stuff

Monday, July 23, 2012
Oh hey its a Tuesday. I know this is a little out of the ordinary from my mon/wed/fri posts but I just felt like this was needed. I want to dedicate a post to my friends. I have been feeling SOOO grateful for all the people in my life lately and I know they were placed there for a reason. Of course a shout out to my fam because they are always just the greatest. My parents don't live near me so my friends have become my family in a way. Most of you know all the stuff I have been through if you are a frequent follower of my blog. Friends have been a huge support system and I honestly would not be as happy or in such a great place without them. So here they are... (in no specific order guys, don't get mad.)

Say hi to Dane, Chris, and Aaron. These boys have been such great friends and amazing guys to be around. And clearly, they make me laugh pretty dang hard. I had laugh tears. P.S. They are single ladies :)

This is Nicole. This girl does my hair. That is not the only reason I love her so much. She is such a positive uplifting beautiful girl and I have had a great time getting to know her and she has been a great example to me.

I wish I could begin to describe these two. This is Lesly and Brandon. Les and I have been friends for YEARS. Since junior high people. I am old, so that was a long time ago. Brandon and I have been friends for a while also. These two have seen me at my worst and my best and have loved me through it all. When I look back on my best memories these two are almost always included!

Say hello to my roommates! This is Kati to my left and Tex to my right. Kati is a new person in my life and we have already had a blast. She helped me write my dating/boys posts that were a little on the silly/crazy/venting because we are girls side. I'm sure you girls know what I'm talking about. Those giggly moments where you say weird things and look back and read them and think how people probably think i'm crazy.... yeah. Well anyways, these girls are amazing. They are such strong girls and great examples. And they put up with my crazy. My real crazy. They get to listen about my stories and my drama and my life. And they also still love me.

This is Jess. I met this girl while living in St. George. She kept me sane. I had a very rough few years down there and I loved going to work and laughing with this girl. She is such a ball of energy and she shares my love for fashion. Living with her for a short while and sharing clothes was nothing less than amazing!

This is Britt. We met playing volleyball at Dixie State. I can't tell you guys how much I miss this girl. She is amazing. She has also helped me get through a lot. It's also great having a tall friend to share clothes with. I haven't seen here in a while but we still talk all the time and I love her to death!!

This is Adam.... um.. he is pretty great. I know he probably won't read this so I might embarrass him a little. :) First of all... look at those perfect pearly whites and those dimples. My goodness. Adam and I have known each other for a short while but like I said, he is GREAT. Ladies, I can say there are good guys out there. Who would have thought?! Not me... I was doubtful. This guy is a winner and I am privileged to get to hang out with him. That's all i'm saying... haha I may or may not have found some fun editing apps recently. I have had too much fun editing pictures and adding cheesy quotes lately because I'm a girl and I soak up all that cheesiness stuff. Well he puts up with that, and that alone is just wonderful. I could probably go on and on but I'll save some for later...

I got to facetime with him tonight, obviously as you can see. It was the highlight of my week. Well, so far. I got to see him all last week so that beats facetime anyday. I am already looking forward to rushing through my day off so I can talk to him and see his cute face again. Okay, I'll shut up.

So to sum this all up... my friends are better than your friends.

For real. Also, I am willing to share.
