Rekindled Friendship

I had this friend through out junior high and freshman year of high school. We hung out often and everyone believed that we were sisters. Supposedly we look alike. We hadn't seen each other in fourteen years because I moved to a different area the summer before our sophomore year. We've been connected through social media over the years but we've never had the opportunity get together. She just moved ten minutes from me so we decided to meet up. The photo below was taken back in 2002. Nearly non-existent eyebrows were in back then, by the way.

We met on Friday for lunch at 2. I was a little nervous, like I was about to go on a first date. It was as if no time had passed and yet we'd both done so much living since we'd seen each other last. We sat and talked for about two hours. Then we went to get coffee and sat and talked for another two hours. And then we thought it would be fun to go grab some drinks so we went over to the mall. 

We sat on the patio and enjoyed people watching while sipping our cocktails. 

My husband joined us and he ate dinner while we enjoyed round two. After that, the three of us walked around the mall. We got cupcakes for dessert and finally parted ways a little after 9. We arranged to meet up the next night too. She came over to our house. I cooked dinner and dessert. We drank a few more cocktails, this time the low cal homemade versions. We watched two movies and two episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County. My husband was thrilled about that last part {just kidding}. I'm really glad she lives so close. We've already made so many plans and she's going to be my new workout buddy. 

Tater sure does love the weekends because he gets to crawl into mom and dad's bed and snuggle. 

We met my parents for lunch on Sunday at Bushfire. I ordered the chicken and rib combo - my fave. We did our normal Sunday grocery shopping at Trader Joe's and then we went home to relax and enjoy what was left of our weekend. I did not run at all this weekend and I have a lot of catching up to do {in case you were wondering, Michael}.
