My Fair Lady

To say that I hit the jackpot would be an understatement.  Almost 4 years ago, we moved into our house.  On that very day, I met my next door neighbor.  You all know her now, as Lady.  She is my best friend.  She shares my love for Dr. Pepper, and is like me in many more ways than we differ.  For those of you who watch Private Practice...she's my "anyway friend".   In case you don't know what that means, you can play this clip from the show.  I warn you in advance, it is Private Practice, so there is some stuff going on in this clip that may not be appropriate for young viewers...




Lady is one person I know I can call in the middle of the night for ANYTHING.  She listens to me vent, supports me through difficult times, but never lets me wallow.  She will let me get whatever is bothering me off my chest, and then she kindly points out the bright side.  I'm so lucky to have such a wonderful friend as a next door neighbor. 

Today is her birthday.  I would like to take this opportunity to say "SURPRISE!" and to share a few pictures fo the two of us, over the last few years.  Please excuse the photo quality...I totally stole them off her Facebook page, because she always has a camera, and I never do...


She doesn't hesitate to capture a memory, even if we're not looking our hottest...


She's always there when I feel like acting like a silly teenager.  She doesn't even laugh at me for it.  (The third girl in the picture is our friend, Baub.  I've mentioned her before.)

We help each other stretch our creative muscles...
Like when we made these shirts.

She never lets me do stupid things...alone.


Did I mention we both prefer contacts?

She's loads of fun on a double date.  And then, since we are terrible at making decisions, we can make the husbands pick what we do.  Good thing they get along too!

She loves to play games, can talk some serious trash, but ultimately will be a big ol' baby (just like me) when we lose.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LADY!!!  I LOVE YOU!!!
