good friends make everything better

Thanks to everyone for the encouraging and thoughtful words yesterday. Every comment made me smile. You know what else helped?

Having lunch with this girl.

Allena and I have known one another since high school!

Throwback picture:

It’s funny because when I look at my high school pictures about 90% of the clothes I am wearing come from Allena and her sister Patty’s closets. Good times.

We were roomies in college:

And she was my matron of honor in my wedding:

So we’ve been through a lot together and she knows exactly what to say to bring a smile to my face. By the time I left lunch I wasn’t feeling quite so blue. If you don’t read her blog then you should. Trust me when I say she is completely legit and you will have fun reading about her life, husband and adorable little boy. Promise.
So other notable Tuesday things. Look at my finger:
Is that not disgusting?! I got into a fight with the toaster oven and he won.
OUCH! IT hurts like a mother…
Moral of the post…good friends will make everything better and when trying to pull a sweet potato out of the toaster oven don’t use your burn prone fingers.
The End and HAPPY Tuesday!

    OMgosh! Burns hurt SO bad!

    Old friends definitely tend to make things better! 🙂

    oof.. your poor finger! Burns are the worst. One time, in my mid-morning haze, I went to turn off the stove (was making coffee) and the inside of my wrist got stuck to the hot coffee pot!!

    Toaster ovens are sneaky adversaries. They lure you in with their ability to melt cheese.

    Ouch – that looks awful. I burn myself all the time, its pathetic. I have burn marks all up and down my arms from trying to get stuff out of the oven without opening the door all the way. Its painful.

    Just got around to catching up on one of my most favorite blogs (um, that would be yours) and your post on friendship spoke so deeply to me. I recently lost my job and one of my dear friends was there to listen to me, comfort me and just let me cry. It was such a simple but yet such a profound experience. I’ve always been guarded and never allowed myself to experience what a true friendship can bring to one’s life. It was for me at 43 years old a lesson about the value of being a good friend and allowing myself to have a genuine friend. Thank you for sharing the story of your wonderful friendship.
