Friendship

This weekend was one of the best I've had in a long time. My dear friend Amanda came to stay with me and it was just the girl time I needed! She and I hadn't seen each other in well over a year so most of the weekend was spent talking, talking, talking. It was the perfect combination of a lazy weekend + a best friend :) I'm pretty sure we stayed up later than I have in months both nights she was at my house. I took her to my favorite local Mexican place, we shopped some great bargains, explored Jungle Jim's and watched lots and lots of football.

And you know what else is awesome? I didn't whip my camera out but one time to get an 'updated' shot of the two of us. I left it tucked away and just truly enjoyed my time with my friend. Amanda is one of those friends that it doesn't matter how long it had been since we'd last hung out- I'd trust her with my life. She is genuine and amazing and I'm blessed to have her as my friend. Now I'm just working on getting her on board with starting a blog.... :)

And in other news? This post is just short and sweet today since I'm a semi-nervous wreck about the game going on tonight. Bengals vs. Steelers. MNF. 8:40. You don't want to miss it. WHODEY!

  2. I absolutely love those kinds of friendships! The ones where you both know that life is busy and always changing but you are still there for each other no matter what. I have a few of those too and feel so grateful. Good Luck tonight! :)

    I think that girls time is so necessary and it's so great to not bring a camera out. I love those nights and days
