A visit from friends in VA








May has been a busy and fun month for us. One of the highlights was a visit from my college friend Kathleen and her 3 kids. It was so fun. I met Kathleen the night before classes began our sophomore year at Maryland when she was with this guy I liked named Bennett. Kathleen claims I gave her an unnecessarily hard handshake that night, which is probably true. I, of course, immediately disliked her. So when she showed up in my art history class (what was an engineer doing taking art history anyway?), in the seat in front of me, I was all attitude. Turns out, though, although she was with Bennett that night, she wasn't "with" Bennett, so we could be friends. Our relationship began with, among other things, weekly viewing of Party of Five in her living room where we would ooh and ahh over Matthew Fox (we still ooh and ahh over Matthew Fox each week in LOST!). Now we laugh at how eerily similar we are. We found out when she was here that not only did we have the exact same pajamas, we had the same bathing suit! Anyway, that's all TMI I digress.
So of course when they visited I HAD to introduce them to Boj's (right Uncle AJ???). Is that weird? I can't get enough of that place.
Her kids are so great. There were slumber parties every night and crafts and we even went to the pool. We had fun even though it was FREEZING!
You are the best, Kathleen, I love you! Thanks for coming!

Can you believe I've never been to Bojangles? You'll have to tell me what I'm missing.
