Wordful Wednesday: Friends

SO, I found out the other day that one of my best friends, Colleen – right, reads my blog. She’s been privately stalking me! And another of my best friends, Jewel – left, stalks me too. She comments every once in awhile. (Not very many people I know ‘in real life’ know about my blog, so I was surprised to hear that Colleen did…)

I was looking through my pictures and here (above) is one of the three of us one year in Canada. I’m pretty sure they’re 19 and I’m 20 (or possibly them 20 and me 21…I’m almost a year older than all of my friends because of my birthday being in September…the whole starting school thing). This was taken before a night of clubbing…and before digital photography! lol

And here is another with our other best friend, Krista. We don’t see each other often, but when we do, we just pick up right where we left off.

And just because I want to, I’ll tell you how long we’ve all been friends.

Colleen and I have been friends since we were in 3rd grade. We met at church on a Wednesday night in an Awana’s class. I don’t remember the name of it though. Our conversation had something to do with my non-existent boobs being fragile. We were then friends for life.

Then I met Krista. She started attending the small private school that Kyle and I already went to, in 5th grade. I think Colleen started going there that year too. I invited Krista to my birthday party and the rest is history.

Jewel started going to our school in 6th grade. We all said that she looked like Krista, but really, it was only because both of them have naturally curly hair. Jewel is the one that I vandalized a park with.

We all became friends and have remained friends through it all. We all live completely different lives, but when we get together it is so much fun. We all wish we could get together a lot more often, but schedules don’t let us, plus Krista lives on the other side of the States while the three remaining, live here, just miles apart.

Anywho, these are my best friends and I love them to death! Now they can’t be so anonymous in their stalking! Haha! Muah!



  1. How awesome to have such long standing friends, even if they do secretly stalk you!! hehe.
    Of course they may not thank you too much for the photos, mine would kill me..but i guess it would be a way to get us together! LOL have a great day!

  2. Such a blessing to have such good friends, and most of them so close! I hope your schedules allow you to get together more often than not!

  3. Awww! How wonderful to have friends like that!

  4. My best friend and I have been friends since we were 8 and 9. It is a cool relationship when you grow up as friends!

  5. Wonderful to have such great friends for so long! Like the blonde you too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. How great – love the pics.

    You vandalized a park? For shame! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll have to check that post out.

  7. Look at you as a blond!!! Ah,, friends that have known us over the years… & still love us… priceless!

  8. It’s fantastic that you keep in touch with them after all these years. Old friends are hard to beat.

  9. Such a great thing to have wonderful friends in your life…even if they are kind of stalking you. LOL

  10. Yes, I stalk you and you know it:0p Bwa hahaha.

    And what’s wrong with these pictures? I thought we were all very pretty at 20. It’s the middle school pix that you’ve posted that I would rather didn’t exist!

    Your crime buddy:)

  11. BFFs are the best! You look so cute in those pics! Look at that blond hair!

  12. That top photo is horrible. I don’t remember my hair ever being black. You forgot to mention how the four of us rented a room with only two twin beds for the night, we lost Jewel and Krista hogged the room to make out with some German guy. All while some stranger carried you back to our hotel. I am sure I am leaving out incriminating info about my state-of-mind, but that wouldn’t be good stocking would it.

  13. It is great that you have kept up these friendships.

  14. Ding dong, ding dong…wanna come out and play along? You’ve been tagged! Come on over to my blog and check out “What’s in your bag?”
