If it Wasn't For Her, I'd be That Crazy Cat Lady With a Human to Cat Ratio of 1:152

I just went to lunch with my bestest!


I NEVER get to see her! Like ever. She lives 4 hours away, so imagine my surprise when she calls me up and says she's in town and wants to go to lunch!


2010


Me love her.


De has taught me many things throughout our 16 year friendship and I'd like to share a few with you.



I learned...


1. That the most delicious snack is toast with peanut butter, cinnamon and sugar.


2. How to get grounded for months at a time.


3. That it is not a sin if a guy touches your stomach...phew.


4. How to do the centipede.


5. The lyrics to "Shoop" by Salt-N-Pepa, and how to properly sing it gangsta style.


1999


6. How to kick a soccer ball into the air and not let it touch the ground.


7. How to play cards in an elevator in Wendover and not get kidnapped.


8. How to make No Bake Cookies, Egg & Tortilla, Breakfast Cake, and Homemade Tortillas.


1999


9. To be 1% Mexican.


10. That kissing boys with tongue is not gross.


11. The proper way to tan on your roof.


12. How to be a good mom. You know, if by chance I ever become one.


2008


13. How to fake cry while singing "End of the Road" by Boyz II Men.


14. How to shave down there.


15. How to flirt with a boy without pooping myself.


2000


16. How to keep a secret.


17. How to be a friend.


1999


Love you De!

Good friends are hard to come by, I have a few & it's a special bond with those girls. Thanks for sharing yours...well not "sharing" like that ;)

Kristina P. said...

Wow, you learned a lot of very valuable things from her.

Pricilla said...

It is so important to have someone teach you how to play cards in an elevator so you don't get kidnapped.

you never know when you might need a skill like that.....

huh?

Brian Miller said...

sounds like a great friend....

Julie said...

What a great friend...I need the tortilla lessons. And maybe some of the others, but we won't go there.

OHhh I would have put shaving down there as one of the top ones lol.. That is an important thing to know how to do and not wind up with a 3rd lip roflmbo.. Love the pics..

Aleta said...

That's so sweet! I love the things that she's taught you. The pictures truly show the friendship!

Youre lucky to have a relationship like this.

Now as a bloggy friend, I want to teach you something.

Slice up a banana over fried eggs. Best breakfast ever.

Youre welcome.

Amy said...

Long live the centipede, that's awesome! You guys are funny.

JennyMac said...

Cheers to awesome friends!

Justine said...

OMG, this was great, and I love that you included pictures from 10 years ago! You guys actually had professional shots taken together. That is sooooooooo cute!

I've gotta tell you though... it's not fair that you look the same now as you looked 10 years ago. Nope, not fair.

And OMG, I used to lay out on my roof to tan too!

Justine :o )

Mayhem and Moxie said...

This post made me smile, Poob. Absolutely loved seeing the pics of you two over time.

More importantly, I have no idea how to properly tan on a roof. Someday, you will have to teach me. :)

Rebecca Jo said...

ahhh - I miss my bestie growing up now!

TMI Tara said...

Bestests are the bestest! I'm glad that I'm not the only one who got professional photos taken with my BFF. How funny is that!? Seriously cracks me up. At least you guys didn't wear matching outfits. ;O)

Janalyn and Rob said...

OK, you two are too cute!

AmyLK said...

Life friends are the best! they will be there for you through EVERYTHING!

Nana said...

I am glad you had someone to show you how to shave your toes.

Aunt of 14 said...

You can make tortillas without cooking them?

Looks like a great friend-- of course shaving your toes is a big important lesson of life. Of course.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Ahhhh, I agree good friends that you keep over the years are hard to come by!

LOVE all the pictures and the different years! You're too cute :)

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Awwwww! Friends like that are pure gold! You didn't have her bronzed or anything while she was there, did you? ;)

Shmonae said...

Hah precious :)
I love it. I can't wait go on my FIRST trip with my old high school girl friends in April!
BTW...Since you are popular and stuff, I was wondering if you would be my friend and put a link to my first give away of a NH bag. I would be happy to compensate you if you know what I mean... ;) I have new products that are fun that you could come pick up. The link is on my home page pink-moss.com
luvs!
