Before you read this post, you should sing “Best Friend Day 2013″ in Tom Haverford’s voice. If you don’t know who Tom Haverford is, shame on you. Since I’m feeling particularly nice today, here’s a reference just in case.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue. Yesterday, my best friend Abby and I had a much needed girls day in Tupelo. The last time we saw each other was for the final installment of the Twilight movie series, so yeah, it’s been a while. We typically keep in touch through emails and text messages, but nothing is as uplifting as actually sitting across the table from her.
One of the reasons for our date (aside from the six month period of no Abby face time in my life) was to have a brainstorm session. As you know, my blog has been lacking in posts as of late and I figured bouncing ideas off of Abby would be a good way to get excited about blogging again. We sat for over an hour throwing around ideas, some long term, and short term goals for our blogs. After we had finished brainstorming, I felt a lot better. I was also hungry, so we decided to partake in unlimited soup and salad at Olive Garden. It’s actually embarrassing how much salad I ate. I just can’t help myself.
Once we had finished lunching, we decided to burn some calories walking around the mall window shopping. I had no intention of buying anything, but a girl can look and dream right? Ok, I actually did break down and buy Nick a little happy since he was left to fend for himself all day long. It’s amazing that I didn’t have to fork over more money than I did, considering everything I touched yesterday ended up on the floor. I either dropped it, bumped it while I was looking at something else, or knocked it off a shelf. It was quite comical and provided a good laugh for the both of us.
After the shopping and dropping, we rounded out the day with a nice treat from Starbucks and a gossip sesh. Yes I gossip and yes I just said “sesh”. Get over it. Sometimes you just need your best friend to listen to all the gripes you have in life and thankfully I have Abby for that. She’s the one person I know that I can say just about anything to and it doesn’t phase her. She never thinks any less of me and never lets anything I say leave her lips. I think everyone needs a person like that in their life, for sanity’s sake.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend. I know I have. I’ve been one busy bee.
