I thought it would be fun to do a little blog post about the bloggers I know in real life. Some I have known pre-blogging and many I have met through blogging. I will give you a little history on how we became friends and what their blog is about. You may just have a few new favorites.
I actually may break this up into several posts…this will get a little long otherwise. (I am very blessed to have so many friends!)
First, is my bff Megan of This is My Natural Color. And perhaps this my attempt to get her to do a blog post. Ha! (She’s the blonde. And Aja is the brunette with the tan :)…I will fill you in on her too.)
I could probably do a whole blog about my adventures with Megan. We have been friends for 11 years. We have traveled together, lived together, been in each other’s weddings and have shared many of our most significant experiences with each other over the past 11 years.
Megan is my opposite in a lot of ways, but I think that is one of the reasons we get along so well. One of our opposite ways is that she is low key and relaxed; I am definitely the more high strung of the two. Case in point: About 7 years ago we were flying home from a trip to Chicago. I was PRETTY sure the plane was going to crash because of the severe turbulence. I am grabbing her (as though that was going to save me) and her response (in a very calm tone, mind you) was that “It’s cool. If it’s our time to go, it’s our time to go.” Um, I was pretty much not subscribing to this theory. Good news – we both made it out alive.
Anyway, this is basically my petition to get Megan to blog. She is has been studying to take her CPA (again, I mentioned we were opposite – doing math problems and dealing with numbers is pretty much equal to my worst case scenario of ways to spend my time), and is on break for the rest of the month.
I heart you, Megan!
Blogger #2, Meet Jane of the Franzia Files.
Jane, this is totally my way of bullying you into writing something new for us. You CANNOT let my readers down. And, friend, we MUST get a more recent picture of us. This is the only one I could find. Janie is on the far left, I am on the far right. The bride is the friend that binds us – Emily - who is due with a baby in 2 weeks!! And this picture was taken three years ago.
I met Janie my freshman year in college. We were definitely friends, but things got messed up with the housing assignments in our sorority house our sophomore year. Janie was supposed to live her Big Sis (what ever happened to her????) and I was living with two other girls that I went to high school with. Well, we showed up for Rush and I was in a room for four and Janie was our fourth roommate. We lived together the rest of college and I was also a bridesmaid in her beautiful wedding.
Janie is the most creative, hilarious and helpful people I have ever met. I truthfully know, without a doubt if I were to call Janie and tell her I needed her, she would be on a flight tomorrow. Actually, scratch that, she would be on a flight tonight.
Also, when I had my flower business, she would drive in from Edmond just to help us. And probably bring us dessert or another treat. I always knew Janie would be a good mom because of how amazing she was in a crisis.
I heart you, Jane. As a thanks for this glowing review you can totally thank me with a funny blog post about what is going on in your life.
Okay, so this has gotten a little long. More soon! XOXO
