Lordy...Lordy look who turned 40!


See that face! That is the face of my bestfriend, who just turned 40! As much as we all gave her grief about it...she was a good sport about it! This picture was taken at the place where we go to crop (scrapbook) some nights! We had a little party with fellow croppers. I brought the big ol' balloon and cupcakes and the sparkly stuff!

Her birthday was on Dec 31st...yes your read correctly! She is a New Year Eve's baby! This year she wanted to do something to bring back a bit of ol'fashion fun! She had a bowling party. They we are all...stiff and haven't bowled in years, some of us decades. Nonetheless, we were all very excited to get out and have some fun. There were about 13-14 of us who came, and we were certainly the loudest (no thanks to me...lol). It was lovely to see her beaming and really enjoying herself. There were times I would have to stop and turn and then smile, because she was just laughing and grinning like a cheshire cat!

For almost (alittle more than) half of 40 years I have known Adrien. We used to party in our early twenties, and go clubbing and all sorts of things that 20 somethings do! :)
And through those years we became closer. We have been there when we have had things happen in our lives, good and bad! We have been there through sickness and health. And we always champion each others causes. I have said this a many time, but, Adrien and I's friendship has outlasted most marriages.I hold her very dear in my heart. She is someone who knows EVERYTHING about me probably more than my own husband. Well, that should be expected since she was in my life before he was...lol! Adrien doesn't know what I am about to say...but I trust her more than anyone else (besides my family and husband). No other friend has this as much as she does. We are more like sisters really, we picker and then laugh our asses off for now reason. We cry for each other's pain or there to lean on when we can't speak those words of pain.

There is a knowingness about her that brings me comfort when I am around my bestfriend. She brings the best out of me as I hope I do for her. I, unlike some other friends, am friecely loyal, almost to a fault. And I would never cause her any pain. But let someone or some man hurt her...WATCH out! Though we are so different there is a sameness, too. I couldn't possibly think my life without my bestfriend, Adrien in it.

So to my bestfriend! I salute you for turning 40! Thank you for so many wonderful-fun-OMG moments-sometimes tear jerking memories! You are the best and will always be. Heres to another 50...but remember you are still older than me...LOL! Love ya girly!
