Best Friend

Let me tell you a little about my best friend Manda (actually Amanda, but I call her Manda). We have been best friends since we were 5, and we met at my mom's annual Easter party. Actually, when we first met, I thought she was mean, and she thought I was weird :) But for some reason we gave each other another chance. We lived right across the street from each other in Sugar House, UT, and then even when our families moved away we made our parents drive us almost every weekend for a sleepover (I'm sure they were so happy when we could finally drive ourselves since it was an hour each way).

So, why am I telling you about my best friend Manda? Well, she is getting married in 2 weeks, and I am really excited for her! And, also because last Saturday she proved, yet again, to be an amazing friend when she sent me the most marvelous package. When I opened it up, it was a tea cup, yummy cookies, an awesomely HUGE hat, and an invitation to join them, via skype, for her tea party bridal shower :) She knew how sad I am when I miss big things because I live so far away, and so she figured out a way to have me there! She is amazing. I might have cried when I got the package....maybe...ok, I'm a huge baby, and I totally cried. Then Matt laughed at me and gave me a hug :)

So, here are pictures from the "party". I dressed up like I would if I was there, and got to wear the great hat she sent (they all had one, and Manda had one with a pear on it :).

{isn't that the cutest little tea cup and saucer?}

{I dressed little man up too, in his little stud tux}

{Here I am, at the party :) It was super fun, and I'm so glad I got to be there}

And while I am reminiscing on all the fun times i've had with Manda, you might just get a couple of posts about crazy times we have had :)
