Highlight #3

{FRIENDS}
One of our favorite things about spending time in our home town is getting together with friends. Friends that have been our friends for - ev -er. Friends who know way too much about us and love us anyway. These three guys (Joe, Kenny, and Ryan) have been the best of friends since High School. And since I dated Kenny in High School, they quickly became two of my best friends as well.

(and here's the proof) This was Kenny's High School Graduation. Yes - that is me and Koni - two sophomores who were thinking we were pretty cool to be hanging with the graduates. Ryan is to the left of me and Joe is to the right of Koni.
p.s. Why didn't I just rat my hair a little higher and Kenny and I could have been the same height?

We met up with Ryan and Joe and their significant others for dinner and it was so fun catching up with all of them.

And of course now the three of us are BFF's as well. :)

(At Pizza Factory with mom, Jen and her girls) (I'm still recovering from too many trips to the good ol' Pizza Factory) I love this picture for three reasons. First, I just love these girls. Second, thanks to the gradual hill we were standing on and my new yellow heels I look so freakin' tall! (I'm actually the shortest of the bunch). And third, well...I just love these girls. Amber just had a baby and Heidi has one on the way. Lots of reasons to get together to celebrate, not that we ever need a reason.

Me, Mel, and Koni. (Melanie is the missing link from the picture above)

Another get together! We know how to party. An added bonus was meeting my new blog buddy Lainee. (Lainee, how did we not think to get a picture together...especially with that darling basket of fruit you brought by!) Thank goodness for blogging so I can keep up with all of my fabulous friends. I loved seeing you all!

Love those kind of get-togethers when I'm in St. George! I'm loving your highlights because its getting me excited to go down there in a little over a week!

I was thinking the same thing? How can I be a blogger and forget to take a picture?! That just means next time you come we will have to get together again. :)

That's what it's all about, the quality time with people who will love you rain or shine. I'm so glad you get along with the wives. I dated Matt when I was in H.S., so I became good friends with his close friends. So, naturally, when they all got married, Matt sent me off to play with the the boys' significant others. I'm pleased with their choices, thankfully.

It was so fun getting together with you! I'm always so sad when it ends...we never get enough time! So, I told BJ about the trip to SD that we're trying to plan. We totally want to come. I'll keep ya posted.
