True Friends Last a Lifetime....And Lead to Road Trips!!

You know there is something to be said about true friendships... I am very blessed to have lifelong true friends! Some I have been friends with most of my life and some I have been friends with since my teenage years and of course I have also met some wonderful new friends as well.

I recently was reunited with one of my longest and dearest friends and I am absolutely thrilled!! This was a friend that helped me through the biggest of struggles through my teenage years and being a young mom. She too was a young mom and always the most awesome example of what can really be done when life takes a different course. There was a group of 4 of us and we together were like a family. No one else in our lives understood the things we went through but together we got through it all!

During what should have been my friends happiest time of her life, meeting the man she "thought" she had always dreamed of really turned into the most miserable 10 years of her life... After she started dating this man he basically took over her life and kept her away from everyone who loved her more than anything!! She stayed with this man for 10 years before RE-finding her strength and leaving his butt!! So finally after all of these years we found each other again through none other than Facebook LOL! Man I love Facebook! We immediately got together for dinner and it was like never being separated at all! We talked for hours and picked up like we'd been together this whole time! So then it was decided that us and our other Best Friend were taking a road trip!

This past weekend the girls drove the hour trek out to my house and off we went on our trip to The Hardrock Hotel and Casino! Can I just say right now that I LOVE that place!! I honestly have never stayed in a hotel as great as this one! The rooms were fantastic and reasonably priced!! And their employee's were down right awesome!!

We had such a blast!! I brought ALL of our old photo's of us and our kiddo's together and we had such a blast going through them all! It is so amazing how a picture can just take you back!! This was honestly the funnest time I have had in YEARS!!! There is just nothing like being with your girlfriends and acting silly and pretending like your not getting old LOL!!

SO I am here to say that TRUE Friendships last a lifetime and I am SO very thankful for that!!

My very awesome girls!!


We have been friends since we were 8 years old!!



So glad to have found her again!!



Best Friends Forever.....BFF's yeah that's right, I just said BFF!!



Craziness I tell ya!! NO not us!! The fact that our other girl didn't focus the camera first LOL!



Aren't they SO sweet when they sleep?!



OR not!! LOVE them!!

  2. FB is great for reconnecting with people. I've reconnected with people as far back as grade school, which, for me, is a long time!

  9. I know exactly how you feel. I have several lifelong friends, some that I have known since infancy, some from elementary school. Even though we have long distances relationships now, when we ever get the chance to get together, let the good times roll! So glad you got a weekend away, and a kick ass one at that!

  10. What a riot! It's been so long since I've done a girls weekend... in fact, I honestly don't remember the last time. And now I'm so separated from them... one in OH, one in NC. :-( Ah well, I do have a TON of good memories.

    And going to the Hard Rock just had to make your weekend even more fun. So glad you had such a memory-making trip! :)
