Way Back Wednesday: "Girlfriend!"


Here we are for another installment of Way Back Wednesday, brought to us, as always by The Kept Woman. This week's task was to find pics of us with our girlfriends through the ages, so, away we go...

My first best friend was A. We met up in Miss Mimi's Preschool way back when and were best buds all through elementary school

She came from a large family and her siblings were all quite a bit older. It always seemed to be a party over there celebrating someone's graduation, wedding, engagement, new baby, etc. This was from one year that had been particularly busy for them and my grandmother made her birthday cake.

Moving on...literally. When I was in 2nd grade we moved to a new house, and C. was my neighborhood best friend for years.Here we are one Easter looking sweet. Don't be fooled!

Next up, another move....to a new city. I was assigned to a group with S. in 6th grade for a project on Royal Weddings. I didn't know a soul, and she and I became fast friends. Here we are in 7th grade for "Twin Day". (HEY!!, the topic is FRIENDS, not HORRID FASHION CHOICES, so quit laughing.)

Next up, we have J. She was my best friend during high school, college, and first job days.We always had tons of fun together.

Here we have S. once again, with me at my wedding. We were looking out the window watching all the preparations take place while we were holed up in the bride's suite drinking champagne. I'm not sure I ever would have made it through the ceremony without completely coming apart if not for that booze! She's awesome, so thoughtful, and is always super-prepared! S. has been my closest friend for the longest time, and am proud to say that although we live in different cities, and don't have nearly enough time to visit, we still hook up every so often to catch up.

The Twin Day shot is precious!!!

Doesn't alcohol make everything seem so much more easy to handle?
