And we had such a great time.
We ate at El Chico(a long time fave of ours), Bonefish Grill (on a recomendation from Abby) and Mimi’s Cafe. All were so very good.
We shopped and spent money. But bought almost nothing full price. I think I was the only one that bought something not on sale. Cindy found flip-flops for the kids at Target for 25 cents. Can you believe that? 25 cents! What a deal!
We laughed and laughed. And we slept! Until 8:30! It felt great.
Abby called me on Thursday (we talk just about everyday) and asked what our plans were for the weekend. I told her I hadn’t talked to Cindy all week so I wasn’t sure what our plans were. Abby said we were weird.
I don’t think of us as weird really. We have been friends since we were 15 (25 years!), we have talked until late hours, double dated, traveled together and enjoyed countless hours on the telephone. We know each other. We don’t have to talk all the time, or see each other often. We don’t even give each other Christmas and birthday gifts every year. Some years we do, some years we don’t. It just depends.
We are comfortable friends. The kind that pick up where we left off and don’t miss a beat. We aren’t alike really. She loves purple, and I don’t think I own anything that color. I am a junk food junkie, and I reject the premise of exercise. She bought a Sneaky Chef cookbook and wakes up at 4:30 to exercise. We aren’t alike.
But I love her. I love her family. And she loves mine. And my family loves her as if she was a sister, daughter, granddaughter, or niece.
Friends. There really isn’t much greater is there?
It was a good weekend. Hope yours was too. What did you do?
