Happy Birthday BFF - Part I

It's my BFF's birthday today! Happy Birthday Bitches!

She is such a wonderful friend.

I first met Beth in February 2004. My husband and I were in a small bible study group of about 10 people. It was based around the book, The Purpose Driven Life. (If you haven't read it, I implore you do. It's amazing!) Beth's parents were in the group as well.

I get little panic attacks when I'm in a group of people - mainly when it's people I don't know. I don't know why this happens, but it's been something I've been dealing with for years. I learned to suck it up and hide it very well and often use humor to deflect my uncomfortableness. Beth's Mama, Bonnie, would laugh at the things I said. On several occasions, she mentioned, "You have to meet our Beth! You'd get on so well with her!"

The Dubya's** invited us to their home for lunch on Sunday afternoon to meet the rest of their family. About 10 minutes after meeting her, I was like, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?"

Beth: Wanna go shopping?
Me: Always!
Beth: Wanna go now?
Me: Hell Yeah.
Beth: So, you like Value Village?
Me: Yeah I do!
Beth: Okay, let's go! 

Bonding over thrift items, I couldn't be happier.

You're an amazing girl Bethaniel. I'm so blessed you're in my life. I hope you have the best day ever. xoox

** last name kinda sorta changed to protect the innocent.
