Weekend Fun: [BFFs]

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

As you probably saw on Instagram, this last weekend was filled with BFFs. 
 Friday night we attended a concert of one of my best friends from high school, she was like family to me. We spent countless hours at each other's houses, on the court together, in fields (farming), at youth group, and even managed to sneak in a few parties here and there.
She's now on a national tour with her band, The Lovebirds. It was great to see her and so nice to just chat - I obnoxiously bragged about my kids (complete with forcing her to watch a video on my phone). She humbly made mention of winning a competition of nearly a thousand entrants and as part of their tour, get to open for a very well-known artist. She's always been gracious, I shouldn't have expected anything less. 
V, if you happen to find your way here, thank you for the blast from the past, the on-stage shout out, and giving me an 'I'm with the band' moment. I'm so proud of you and so happy to see you doing so well. 
Then Saturday, I got to be hoity-toity with my BFF from college and spend the afternoon at The Broadmoor. Although only about and hour away from each other, we don't get together near enough. She introduced me to the Mr. and has been the most honest, genuine, and supportive friend as we've continued on through these new, big chapters in life.  
Although we've been in high-intensity and extremely competitive arenas together, it was never competition between us. It was a natural, uplifting, and complementary friendship that outlasted the drama of collegiate athletics.
Even with the pouring rain (hence my wet poodle-hair), it was a beautiful and relaxing afternoon. Kelley, thank you for making time to come visit, pay way too much to have our toes painted, and listen to my ramblings about motherhood. I'm already scheming our next get together. Enjoy Mexico, you deserve it. Bring me back tequila a tan.


  1. How refreshing to see old friends. One of the reasons we moved back to FL from CO after college. Now they have kids too and it is a very nice circle to be in.

  2. So I was trying to comment a million times last night but my internet was being LAME and not working so hopefully you didn't get a comment a million times!
    How fun for BFF weekend!!! Your one friend is so talented to be in such an amazing band and so fun you got to say "I'm with the band" and see her! And then another fun BFF day when you got to get a pedicure and catch up with your other friend. Sounds like you had the best weekend! Like a mini mama getaway :)
