B is for Besties

Meet "everyone", otherwise known as my best friends! 
Everyone except Ash who's too lame "busy" to join us on our trips.  And really that cute boy is single (and fun and has a great job and really pretty eyes) Any takers?

We're basically the cast of 90210 (the original one, not the new one that I watch even though it's lame) minus the drugs, and scandals, and drama. We have been best friends (with an addition of spouses through the years) for more years than I count but somewhere around oh, 15. Some a little more than 15 some a little less...but you get the idea, we've been around each other for a long, long time. I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Ever traveled with a huge bunch of friends? It's not always peaches and cream, in fact, I've had a couple pretty terrible trips with a few nameless people before (I am certain I'm not alone on this, some people just aren't meant as travel buddies).  But with these really is always perfect.  No arguments, no fights, no drama....ever. Seriously. As far as I'm concerned the only time we get annoyed with one another is when someone from the group can't hang out with us for various logical (usually) reasons.  And that's only because we want to see each others cute faces as much as poss!

Is it strange to you that we have been friends for so long? Some people think it is. Most of my friends from college don't even speak to anyone they were friends with in high school, let alone elementary school.  That to me is strange! We always looked forward to coming home for the holidays and seeing each other!

 Surely, a post devoted to the boys and their funny antics and gayness man crushes they have on each other is coming up down the road. Rest assured,  I have plenty of stories and pictures for this one.
But let me focus on my girls for a bit. 

I could tell you why each one is so special and what they add to our group but I won't. Simply put, I love these girls!

And then there's these besties from college. I WISH I got to see them more. They are SO very missed every single day! Luckily, college memories are on my brain all the time, so even if they're out of sight they are never out of mind!
I have zero doubt in my mind that we will be in each others lives forever. And the girls will still be chatting about stuff the boys could really careless about and the boys will likely be creating some off the wall game that is sure to have a billion different rules that no one except them will understand (oh, and they will most certainly be wearing the same shirt).
