DREAMS & FRIENDS

WHY HELLO.. GUESS WHAT?! BIRDIE IS DOING 98% BETTER THAN THE LAST TIME I TALKED ABOUT HER. SHE IS FULLY POTTY TRAINED (MINUS WHEN I'M NOT HOME TO TAKE HER OUT, NOT REALLY HER FAULT), SHE HAS CALMED DOWN AND IS BEHAVING VERY WELL. ALL OF THIS BEFORE EVEN GETTING HER SPAYED! I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE RESULTS AFTER THAT. AND SHE'S BEEN DOING WELL EVER SINCE WE STAYED AT OUR FRIENDS THE OLSEN'S HOUSE TO WATCH THE KIDS, AND BIRDIE THEN HAD A PUPPY FRIEND NAMED 'SUNDAE' THAT SHE GOT TO PLAY WITH AND RELEASE HER WIGGLES. SO THAT MAKES ME SUPER HAPPY. THE ONLY THING THAT WOULD MAKE THIS BETTER, IS IF I HAD A BACKYARD FOR HER TO GO OUT AND DO HER THING BY HERSELF, THAT DAY WILL BE AWESOME.

..AND SPEAKING OF HAVING A HOME, OBVIOUSLY THE FIRST PLACE WE'LL BUY WILL BE SOMEWHERE IN SAN DIEGO. AND AFTER ANALYZING IT, THE PLACE I DREAM TO BE IS ACTUALLY ON KNOB HILL IN SAN MARCOS. ON AN END UNIT TOWN HOME. OUR FRIENDS THE COLLINS' GREW UP IN ONE, AND IT'S WHERE I DREAM TO END UP. RIGHT NEXT TO AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND TONS OF PARKS, WHICH I IMAGINE WILL BE USEFUL SOMEDAY. AS WELL AS WE'LL BE CLOSE TO BOTH FAMILIES. HOW PERFECT. WE WILL OWN THAT TOWN HOME SOMEDAY.. AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY.. HOPEFULLY 2 YEARS FROM NOW. :)

ALL OF THIS REMINISCING ON THE COLLINS' PLACE HAS MADE ME THINK A LOT ABOUT MY OLD BEST FRIENDS.. AND SO I THOUGHT "I SHOULD LIST ALL MY DEAR FRIENDS TO REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES.." SO I'M DOING JUST THAT...

1. KAMRI COLLINS. BEST FRIENDS FOR 12 YEARS FROM THE WOMB. WE SWAM, PLAYED BARBIES, AND ALL KINDS OF LITTLE GIRL THINGS.
2. MANDY PETERS. BEST FRIENDS FOR 2 YEARS. MET IN MIDDLE SCHOOL, WENT TO THEME PARKS TOGETHER, PLAYED DONKY KONG 64, RECORDED WEIRD SKITS.. AND THEN SOME.
3. KATIE MONROE. BEST FRIENDS FOR 5+ YEARS AND COUSIN'S FOREVER. PLAYED WEIRD GAMES LIKE 'RETARDED TEACHER', SWAM, CHEERED FOR A FEW YEARS TOGETHER.. AND LOTS OF FAMILY GATHERINGS.
4. HALEY KNIGHT. BEST FRIENDS FOR 3 YEARS, OFF AND ON. PLAYED BARBIES, PLAYED WITH ANIMALS, PLAYED HIDE-&-GO-SEEK IN THE DARK, AND LOTS MORE.
5. LINDSAY CHAPMAN. BEST FRIENDS FOR 2 YEARS IN HIGH SCHOOL. WENT TO CHURCH DANCES, SHOPPING, LOTS OF GIRL CHATS AND 'HANG OUTS', HAWAII, AND THEN THE SINGLES WARD.

6.MALINDA (MEL) WEEKS. BEST FRIENDS FOR 3 YEARS AND STILL GOING. WORKING AT THE MALL TOGETHER, SINGLES WARD TOGETHER, BOYFRIEND DRAMA TOGETHER, LOTS OF MOVIES AND TRIPS TOGETHER.

..TAH DAH. ALL OF MY BEST FRIENDS. OF COURSE THIS LIST DOESN'T INCLUDE 'BOYFRIEND' BEST FRIENDS, ALL OF MY BEST GUY FRIENDS THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE.. MY MONUMENTAL FRIENDS THAT ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR ME.. OR THE OBVIOUS SISTERS AND MOTHER WHO HAVE BEEN MY TRUE BEST FRIENDS EVER SINCE I WAS A BABE. ANYWAY, I HOPE THE BEST TO ALL OF THEM.

HAPPY SABBATH.
