The very best ones? The ones that always laugh at your jokes. They enjoy partaking with you in fun girly activities or just siting with you, lounging in comfortable silence. They know how to how to be classy – even at a dive bar and they know the exact right time and way to deliver compliments to you to touch your soul?! Really, these are the friends that just make your life better because they’re in it.
Well, those girls came to visit me this weekend. I laughed. Oh how I laughed. Hard, with gusto and a few really good snorts – the. entire. weekend. And throughout the whole thing, they just reminded me of how lucky I am to be blessed with some seriously rock star, fantastically wonderful, high achieving, amazingly talented friends.
We ate. We hiked. We ate. We dressed up. We ate. We shopped. We ate. We lounged. We ate.
And kids, we ate good.
In an amazing geeky foodie way that I haven’t gotten to experience in a long time.
My goodness I love these friends.
I showed them around my new town. We saw the sites. They saw the new place. They loved on my pets. They were up for anything and everything.
And they brought me Runza.
And then they told my new friends all of the same things I’d been saying about my home state since I moved here:
- Runza is great. If you don’t like it, we don’t understand you.
- Nebraska IS a panhandle.
- Chili and cinnamon rolls as a combination is legit.
- People from a state should know geographically the border states and where they are positioned.
- Elevation on a city sign is weird, it really should be population.
- Measuring distance should only be noted in time… not miles, that means nothing to us.
- Shopping is an art form.
Okay, that last one is maybe not a serious lesson, but it is true.
And these girls appreciate the beauty in that art form. 110%.
If you’re not catching on… long story short… I adore these girls.
And I already miss them like crazy.
And I love having visitors. And I blog about them. And I totally tour guide them around the entire city… You know… Just something to keep in mind…
So to my AMA ladies: I love you for visiting. I love you for listening. I love you for sacrificing time out of your crazy hectic schedules for our together time. I love you for being flexible and rolling with the punches. I love you for asking the hard questions. And I LOVE that you bring me so much joy.
And be ready for the “Girls on Rocks” 2014 calendar. It’s happening. And it’s going to be magical.
