Best Friend Weekend - part 1

Whew. I am pooped from this weekend. However, it was a BLAST! I am so glad I was able to see my good friend. We were roommates in college and have been best friends since the day we met.

Saturday I woke up early and made the 5 hour trip before lunch.

We went to an awesome Louisiana/ Cajun style restaurant with her boyfriend and his roommate.
Then she showed me the town. They had a pretty sweet library...I mean Elvis was there. How could it not be amazing?

We had a moment. True story. I hope my hubs doesn't get jealous!
Secrets don't make friends in her book...or this book?

We are incredibly dumb when we get together, but I am ok with it.

After the library, we had a little adventure at the train station...a photo shoot ensued. It was just like old times, except not at college...and I have a better camera...and we didn't make stupid faces. Ok, maybe just a few.

After diner, we headed over to a quaint coffee shop to reminisce on all our old adventures via our facebook albums. It's kind of sad that all those dumb times are on the Internet...but I still don't want to erase them, embarrassing though they may be. Doesn't every one else have pictures of themselves dressed up as ninja turtles and very odd looking Siamese twins? (Side note: we actually wore those costumes to class. So silly!)

I came home after church and a bit of shopping the next day. Weekends like that are good for my soul. It's good to have a friend that knows you completely, all your faults, all your secrets and loves you in spite of it all!
I am beyond blessed to have such a true and faithful friend in my life!
