It's only appropriate that I start this post off with a dedication to my little Texas blondie for her birthday! Yup, Steph is 27 today! I mean, we did meet through our blogs, so that means that without this blog of mine, she would never be in my life and that is absolutely CRAZY to think about. I don't even want to think about that..nope. Not for one minute at all.
It all started with a simple email from said blondie Texan who had found my blog and was asking me questions about my wedding pictures. It didn't take long for things to get much more serious so we started texting, the texting turned into many phone calls, and then the realization of "Holy crap! this person is my other half...how did I ever survive before? This is so weird" came about. Then, we spontaneously went on a trip together and had the greatest time in all of the land (and our husbands developed a lovely bromance), then we got back from said trip together and talked every single day (and still do!) and realized how much it sucks living so far away, planned another visit for them to visit our home/city here, then we missed each other in between way too much again and we had some catching up to do so me and Billy flew out to Texas to see their stomping grounds and spend 5 days in their beautiful home. Now, I'm sitting all the way across the U.S from her, instead of being there celebrating her birthday by eating mexican, drinking iced coffee/Corona's/vodka soda's on her front porch, and singing Florida Georgia Line. Sad face. But no fret- this story and the memories are to be continued...
Not mentioned in mini story: how thankful I am for my friendship with Steph. It's hard to meet people in general these days that you can really trust, be completely yourself around, feel like you've known since you were little, and like your sitting next to your best friend after actually only knowing them a short amount of time. That's what Steph's friendship is to me. We are incredibly sarcastic towards each other (if you even saw our conversations...), but at the drop of the hat, we can be calling each other for advice. It's never a dull moment in this friendship of ours, that's for sure...
So, last week I saw this awesome spousal game over on Christina's lovely blog and knew I wanted to ask Billy these questions to test his (and mine) knowledge about each other. I also took it a little further by taking a little page out of Erin's book from a while back and asked Billy even more questions at the bottom. The man had some funny answers. Take a look (and feel free to play along with your spouse!)....
