One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Thank you for being a friend...

Sad day today for all fellow Golden Girls fans... I heard the news this morning that Estelle Getty passed away. How funny was she?! I was/am a huge Golden Girls fan -- and she was probably my favorite.

I found myself singing the theme song this morning while I was getting Noah and Evelyn dressed. It must've been all the hormones that are still raging in my body or something... but I started thinking about all of the important people in my life, thinking about how blessed I am to have some really great girlfriends... and it brought tears to my eyes. Yup -- I'm a dork -- I know :)

"And if you threw a party,
Invited everyone you knew,
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend"

(Click on the song if you want to hear it and see the show's intro...)

I saw that on Perez and I was sad, but then I had this ridiculously silly thought about how excited my grandpa probably was (in heaven) when she got there. My grandma always used to call the Golden Girls his girlfriends. I watched them religiously with him:)

I loved that show too. You are so cute....I too think I have been blessed with great friends. You are definitely one of them. I so wish we lived closer. But I definitely LOVE our conversations on the phone. I could talk to you for hours and always have something to say. Miss you!!!
