Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Update #2....TW consented to posting the pic of her Dollar General sunglasses...what do ya think? Keepers or Not?

Update below:

Me with Sisters C, P and KT...putting on the ritz....vacation style:) lol!!!!

What a nice surprise to run into an old friend of mine during my lunch break the other day! We had the best visit right there in Goody's. This girl and I were once upon a time, glued at the hips. We did everything together. Always at each other's house. Her Mom was my bus driver, and would you believe it, her Dad is my son's yellow limo driver too:) lol!!!!! Oh what fun times we had on that bus:) She would get to stay at my house while her Mom did the rest of her route, 'cause we were one of the lucky ones who got off first. We cheered together in the pee wee years, and played basketball from grade school on up. We loved to ride 4 wheelers, ride bikes, wrestle...yes, girls do that....and just play outside......girly, girls..we were not! I reckon the cheer leading thang was just that....something to do. I'm glad we did, because I'll never forget her Dad and another Dad or two, standing on top of the bleachers doing the, "....and we hung 'em on the line...."cheer:) ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What fun!! Glad I didn't miss out on that! And that was our (Hubby and I) first arm holding:) again...ROFL!!!! Those were the days.

Time moves on and the next thing you know you haven't saw your childhood friend in like..... forever! You still think about them, but you never see them. And the saddest part of it all is that they live just 20 miles down the road. It's strange how life happens like that.

We had big dreams back then, and they came true. She is the next thing to being a doctor, married with the cutest little 3 year old boy, and you already know about me. It's nice to be reminded of the past. All those memories!

So, in keeping with the old and new friends thang....I've just got to share a few pics with ya! I hope you girls don't kill me:) lol!!!

Do you recognize any of these girls?

Longtime friend Susan.......another Sunday of, "each asking if we could go home with the other:)" Riding in the "station wagon".....definitely another post:) ROFL!!

Wendy & I.....jamming at June Jam IV :) ROFL!!!!!

Stephanie (subject of todays post) and I.....I said we were joined at the hips...looks like elbows:)

Kerri and I......we belong to the War Eagle Club....can you tell we were the only two in the whole stadium not wearing Crimson Red:) lol!!!!

I have so many friends and didn't get to get a pic of all of you on this here is one with as many as I could find in one picture. All of you are near and dear to my heart. I thank God for you!!

TW....I almost put a pic of you with your new Dollar General sunglasses....but I was afraid you would kill me:) lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you don't mind, just let me know and I'll update the post for all the world to see:) lol!!!!!!!!

God be with you 'til we meet again.......


Updated to add this from an email I received today from MIL!!

Thank you each for holding my hand somewhere along the way when I was facing a wave of my own. I hope you will reach for my hand when your own wave threatens.

All of us girls.. Old and young... Near and far... Hold special memories of good times we've shared. We've had our share of hard times when our friends were there to make us feel better. We've shared... our hearts our time our secrets our fears our hopes and our dreams.
Let us never break the chain of friends!

And the word says if 'I have not Love, I have nothing.'
So, again, love you. Love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say
'I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!'
I like that!

Be Blessed ladies and pass this on to encourage another woman.
'To the world you might be one person, But to one person you just might be the world'.

Loved the flashback pictures. Stephanie worked with me the summer I was pregnant with Brandon. She would pull over on the way back from lunch so I could lose my lunch, everyday the whole entire summer!! She is awesome. But, like you, I dont get tot see her too much either!
