A Blogger Friendship Timeline


Once upon a time, girl started a blog (ahem-this one)

Girl randomly creeped on a blonde, southern Texan girls blog (almosttt complete opposite of herself)

Creeping turned into email exchanges and the quick realization the girls were so alike it was pretty much scary...


then the necessary swapping of digits happened which turned into weekly, followed by daily, texts and phone calls...


to, FINALLY, a random idea one day about meeting up turned into our first awkward meeting at Fort Myers airport (except it wasn't awkward at all) and our first picture ever taken together...

 after some convincing they made it happen...

 

which, of course, turned into more yearly trips with our husbands across the US of A together..."you met HOW?! What in the world is a blog?"

 
 
 (#skinnyarmposeaddicts)

Girls form a one-of-a-kind friendship...
 

A failed plan happened once (but a love letter made up for some of that) but then a big, giant surprise was thrown in there...


Now, girls don't go a day without speaking (really-I think I can count on less than two hands the days we haven't), can't imagine their life without the other...


and one of those special days Southern Texas friend tells girl she is going to be a mommy!


Girls heart swells in happiness that she gets to be an AUNT to someone whom she never knew before said blog and then...

Girl books plane ticket to her favorite state of Texas (that she never even knew was her favorite state) to visit her now preggo friend for her gender reveal party!
 
 

All THIS just to say (if anyone is still following)....

There is nothing better than celebrating and supporting your best friends. Especially one that you never imagined would be in your life if it wasn't for the friggen internet. Who.would've honestly thought? It's a crazy world.

Steph, we are so happy for you and know with 72% certainty you will be the most amazing mom in the whole world (Ok..fine...100% certainty.) I'm so excited for this next journey in your life, and I'm absolutely thrilled you have given me full permission to keep your ace in check when you become irrational, overly emotional about unnecessary matters, and preggo brain finally kicks in has already kicked in (see also: our text convo yesterday). You're welcome.

  25. I don't know how you're friends with 'said' blogger girl from Texas. She sounds atrocious. Texting with one eye and all (#iwishicouldgetdrunkandoneeyetextagain). Oh God-and now she's procreating? What is the world coming to? She sounds like a drunken pregnant redneck.

    Siiike. She sounds pretty flippin' awesome if you ask me. Ok maybe because 'said' drunken pregnant redneck IS me. Only I'm not drunk anymore. Just pregnant. Damn it.

    And you wanna know what's even more awesome? The fact that you dug up those old emails and texts. God I was so nice in my first email to you. Who am I?

    Ok but really. I do love you. LOTS AND LOTS...even though you're a yankee. Or a "midwesterner". Or whatever you Ohioans call yourself. I cannot wait to squeeze your neck (and your butt) and shove TX BBQ down your vegetarian piehole.

    I mean, according to the calendarless girl who commented on my instagram last week, you'll be here, like, next week, right?! ;) God love it! AND YOU. NOW GET HERE.

  32. I love it...
    I love even more seeing how again how you two became such close friends..
    I think opposites are good as friends just saying :)

  33. I love trying to explain how I know certain people. And the inevitable - "what is a blog?" question. Seriously, remember when meeting people on the internet was a bad thing? That's sooooo 1998. It really is amazing how you can find your best friends just because you started a blog and stalked a girl on the internet :) Glad you ladies found each other!
