yesterday one of best and oldest friends came to visit
Mellie and I go all the way back to freshman orientation at good ol' PBAU
she and her hubby Chris are in town for her brother's wedding, so they stopped by
not surprisingly (or is it?), i had a bottle of bubbly lying around
so we popped that ish and celebrated my chiefdom with someone who actually enjoys the champs
(nick doesn't. so unfortunate.)
then we went to the River and paparazzi'd ourselves silly
before stuffing our faces with Mexican food
there's not enough to be said about how wonderful old friends are
we picked right back up where we'd left off and didn't miss a single step.
we talked about books and politics and gossiped a bit about old friends
we stole glances at our husbands who had met for the first time and were thoroughly enjoying one another's company.
we commiserated about the awkwardness that exists when you are a married couple of a certain age with no imminent plans for a baby.
it was just so good. refreshing. soul-cleansing.
Mellie, you are a good one. you can squat on my couch any day.
and tell John Rogers i said hello. :)
enjoy your Easter weekend everyone. think of me in the burn unit...
