If This Is An Average Thursday, Sign Me Up

Well, I didn't give us food poisoning last night from Operation: Portable Mini Breakfast Burrito Quiche Thingie, so there's that... I'd give the half-cocked recipe I threw together about a C- on the success scale though - back to the drawing board. I did get a big A+ reaction from the Mr. when he started smelling ham in the oven, so I know that it wasn't a total wash. Please keep the recipe suggestion/ideas coming, my husband and my stomach will thank you for them!

Today was one of those days where I felt like being back in Arizona was truly like being back "home". My boss was cool enough to let me take a long lunch, which allowed me to go visit a close college friend/sorority sister Carla who gave birth last month to a
*gorgeous* baby boy last month. The first baby in our rag-tag group of sorority friends- such a milestone! It was really a quadruple bonus of a visit though- not only was I able to meet the sweet babe (I'm already convinced he's going to be the hippest kid in school) and see his mama, but my other friend Iva was in town visiting for a work event, and we all had In-N-Out. Boom. Just doesn't get better than that.

I remember sitting on the floor of a sorority dorm room with these gals 8 or 9 years ago, eating cereal out of boxes and watching things like Felicity and the first season of American Idol on the TV. Driving to Costco before chapter meeting to grab the screamin' hot dog and soda deal at the food window. Talking about long-distance relationships. It really struck me as I looked back at the 3 of us around the dining room table today- we have all grown up now, have taken varied paths in life. We have so much more life experience under our belts since those days as earnest little Kappa Kappa Gammas.

It dawned on me today- we weren't 3 sorority girls anymore. We were three adult women. Wives, entrepreneurs, homeowners, mothers. And yet we were still laughing and chatting and eating {delicious} crap food, casually referencing events from 5 or 10 years ago just as easily as we referenced tomorrow's plans. And you know what? I felt so
PROUD to be right there, among 2 of the many amazing women I'm proud to call my friends.

And it only gets better from here.

And that makes this 'average' Thursday absofreakin'lutely fantastic.

I am a new reader and also a KKG! I have such awesome memories from my chapter too- I'm officially one of those annoying people who talks about college all the time like it was the glory days. Ha!

Holla from an ex-sorority girl. Tri Delt. Good memories of all things college over here. I am still close with many of the women I met there, and love that we've been able to celebrate life's milestones together. Congrats to your friend on her baby, and to you for staying in touch with your good friends through the years. Thanks for the smile this morning!

Cheers, J

I miss you! I remember when it hit me I was a frown up...the day we drove Mini K home from the hospital. And I still have those moments every week

What a lovely day! Isn't it the best feeling to look how far we have all come and how some things will never change between girlfriends?

Had to drop in and thank you for your ridiculously sweet comment. Made my night!! Your talk of sorority sisters reminds me of my boarding school girlfriends---thick as thieves. A few are flying in for my wedding in July and I'm ecstatic for our reunion. Where would we be without our girlfriends? Thanks again for your kind words!!

xx Katie
