My Besties (inspired by Drazil)

I have two soul sisters. Tammy and Jenn. They've actually never met, and I don't know if they know what a substantial difference they've made in my life. Don't know if I'll ever be able to express into words what they mean to me. I can try though. They actually don't even know the other exists. I'm going to send them the link to this though, so incase you're reading ladies......Jenn, meet Tammy. Tammy, meet Jenn. *handshakes all around* Oh the times we could have as a trio. I'm thinking this my have to arranged sometime in the future.

Jenn and I met in college in a film analization course. I was taking it for an "easy A", (underwater basket weaving was full) she was taking it because film is her life. Which it suits her. She's very interesting, very smart and people listen to what she has to say. Perfect career for her. Someone started a pretty high octane debate about a film that I don't remember, but I do remember it was a love it or hate it type of film. There was no middle ground. As if you couldn't see this coming we were on opposing sides of the debate. The dialogue went something like this:
Unknown Classmate: Has anyone seen (insert name of movie I can't remember here)?
Me: Unfortunately, yes. Don't waste your time or hard earned money, it sucked.
Jenn: What?! You're out of your mind, that movie was great.
Me: Pfft. (it was all I had people. lol)
Such began our friendship. In the years since we talked of everything from the weather to sex. Most recently we've talked about how much the tools our hubby's work with drive us insane because they are complete morons!

We share many things. Including a love of Gerard Butler and Matthew McConaughy (holy hotness batman!). There were about three years that we lost touch with eachother due to moves, getting married, life in general. We've since gotten back in touch and picked up where we left off. Like the gap in time was never there. She lives in Oklahoma and I live in Missouri. As soon as we're sure all the snow storms have stopped, a reunion is being planned. Can't wait for that!

In the three years Jenn and I had lost touch I met Tammy. We met because her (now ex) boyfriend works with my hubby. I enjoy her company so much. We became so close so fast it was like I'd known her forever.

We also share many things. The most odd.....we share a penchant for buttered popcorn jelly beans. However, with Tammy tipping the scales at a whopping 100 pounds, on a "fat day" and soaking wet, she needs them much more than me. :) I try to keep her with a steady supply of them in hopes she'll gain a few ounces. It's not working. :)

Both of these strong and powerful women are my soul sisters because we are all very much alike in mind and spirit. None of us are afraid to and realize it's essential to laugh (sometimes at ourselves). We aren't afraid to tell people what they need/have to hear instead of what they want to hear. And I wouldn't hesitate to go to bat with/for either of these women.

All three of us together?! Whoa momma? I pity the fool on the losing end of that stick. lol

Jenn, Tammy you are my soul sisters, my confidants and my best friends. I love you both! Everyone wants friends that they can call who will drop everything in an instant and come running to their rescue if you needed them. I'm fortunate enough to have two! How lucky am I?!

Ladies, my life wouldn't be the same if you weren't a part of it. Thanx for all the laughs, and all the tears. Thanx for everything. I can only hope I'm as good a friend to you as you've been to me.

Hugs and kisses to you both. I love you.
