In honor of good friends...

J and I live together along with 3 boys, any girl reading this post knows that means we get a lot of grief for simply being ourselves. Anytime we are discussing the injustices we see in the world the boys either try and fix the obvious issues or make fun of us for carrying on. Yesterday while the boys went golfing (we opted out rather than going) we decided to go eat lunch together and perhaps see a movie. We never even saw a movie but rather spent the last 4 and half hours of the day sitting in comfy chairs at Starbucks. Granted we only worked through some of the planets issues, but it made both of us feel better to be able to be "unrealistic" (as the boys call us). Laura, Anne...you've heard me talk you know the kind of grief I would get. While sitting there I looked around at one point and there were several other groups of girls just talking it out, and I realized girls actually need this, apparently even girls who live together.

It is a cold and foggy day in Colorado especially after it was 75 degrees all weekend. The first ski resorts opened last week but only have a little bit of snow. This leads to "rock boarding" named this because some the larger rocks are not all the way covered up and will scratch the bottom of our snowboards. Because we all ride nice boards we skip this part of the season but hopefully we can hit the slopes a time or two before we head off to Mexico for Thanksgiving.

Here's a picture of the volleyball team on our last night of play, and yes you've guessed it...just as the theme to my post it was cold that night.

I think the only person I get girl-time with anymore is Laura. I still have a few friends though that given the opportunity we could sit in a comfy chairs and talk the day away, too, just as though we never missed a day together. It's good to know people like that! (And it sounds way better than golfing to me...:o)

Girl time is so much fun and you got to do it while drinking yummy drinks! Glad you had fun!

Wait.. "J" isn't Joe? Dummy is confused over here.. LOL

Crystal said...

Nope "J" is actually Lynn Jo Jean and has been my best friend since 8th grade, she's featured in the front of the volleyball photo in black. :-)

Got it! BTW: I screamed for like 2 minutes straight. I'll send you a private message clarifying, but thats the truth LOL

It's true. I told Caitie that whenever she meets her husband-to-be and he proposes, he's not going to know if she is saying yes or no b/c she's just going to screaming. He'll probably be able to tell her screams apart by then though.
