i am so lucky

to have friends, i'll be honest, i used to think quantity over quality in terms of friends and i've come to realize that i was so wrong. took me a while to understand that b/c growing up i didn't have many friends. i was quite the ugly duckling and according to some blog trolls i still am. i only recall two good friends growing up but one stopped talking to me to hang with a cool group and another moved and lost contact with me. saying that i will have a few posts coming up with four of my best friends, Nat, Car, Laura, and Lily. Then I don't know how I could forget, an amazing bday weekend for my girl, R, it was my first trip to Ocean City since I was a kid, so it was a very memorable trip. Can't wait to share!

here you'll find Car's Bday celebration! it was a luau themed party and my butt had two other events earlier that day and just couldn't get a luah outfit together...womp womp --- and my makeup was a hot mess by this time, bahhh


the birthday party was so fun and believe it or not i had another birthday party afterwards, i was pooped for weeks from that one day!
as of now my emails are overloaded and i owe a couple amazing blogger friends some replies, i like to put all my energy into an email for people that take the time to listen to me, i'll get to you ladies, i promise!! this is probably why i can never get blog posts done, i want to make posts too long and detailed, i eventually convince myself the post doesn't have to be perfect and to just post it, argh, also, i just got over (almost) a major sinus infection, i was in bed for 5 days, didn't leave my bedroom, i only woke up to use the bathroom and eat, i am very lucky to have an amazing husband that tended to me every moment he was home. i am also grateful my job was so understanding (they probably think i love skipping work... au contraire, i take much pride in my work).

so there you go ladies and gents, i am back up and running and i can't wait to catch up on my google reader! i miss reading all my fav bloggers' posts

I completely agree with you regarding quality over quantity. As I've gotten older, I've come to realize that I only need 3 awesome friends that I can count on. I was definitely an ugly duckling as well growing up. But chica, you are gorgeous now. Let those haters hate!!

hi Janine, thanks for following my blog, I followed you back.

I was like you back in college, I had tons of friends, but I found my True Best friends when I started working, I have the 4 best girlies ever. Although we don't see each other often (we know work on different companies) our bond is just awesome.

And by the way, you look Gorgeous!

You, an ugly ducking!? NOT EVEN. Your gorgeous girl. :) And when it comes to friendships, I'll take quantity over quality anyday. My BFF and I have been friends for over 20 years (since we were six).. and we've had our ups and downs, but I know she is one friend that will always be there for me. :)

How cute!! A luau party for your friend's bday... definitely a common thing here in Hawaii!

#3. I love your pants and the party was beautiful.

I saw your comment on my blog. Aw, shucks. I love that I'm on your "bloggers to e-mail" list! :)

You poor thing! I'm still sick, too. What the heck is going on? Everyone and their momma is ill. Thank goodness for G. I'm sure Rocky helped out, too. ;)

It looks like y'all had a lot of fun! I love the luau theme!



nooooooo you are not the ugly duckling and whatever blogger says that to you obviously doesnt know what they talking about that really hurt my heart (prego emotions) dont let no one ever tell you your not beautiful obviously you are. xoxo
