I thought I would dedicate my Thursday 13 to one of my besties, Brandy (or "the BFF", as she likes to be called). :) Today is her birthday! We've only been friends for six years, but there are times I feel we have been friends our entire lives. We always say that our friendship is a "God thing" because if you knew us separately, you would wonder how on earth we could be friends. We literally went from not knowing each other to being best of friends in a matter of weeks. But looking back, our friendship is something that only God could have planned. We became friends at a time in our lives when we were both struggling with similar, yet different, issues (I know that makes no sense to you). She is my fellow sports loving, country music listening, vampire novel reading, easily turn into a giddy 15 year old, partner in crime. She is the Thelma to my Louise (or am I Thelma, I can never remember), the Felix to my Oscar, the Lucy to my Ethel. She got married a few years ago and moved far away (okay, she moved to Fort Worth, but I'm in Dallas- you know how that goes), so we don't get to see each other every week like we used to. BUT, our friendship is just as strong.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PENELOPE*! Love you!!

|At our birthday party a few years ago. The Nerf guns were gifts from our friend's sons (I think they were 7 and 4 at the time). After the party they said it was the coolest "girl party" they had ever been to! We rule!|
|At our first FC Dallas soccer game a few years ago (I played soccer in high school, I had always wanted to see a MLS game in person!) :)|
|Waiting in line to ride the Shock Wave at Six Flags.|
|Waiting for 4th of July fireworks a few years ago (we had spent the day at the lake- hence my sunburn).|
|This was taken moments after we saw Josh Hamilton at Rangers Fanfest. He came out of his way to shake my hand! :)|

|At a Dallas Stars playoff game (obviously this one is a little old! Stars haven't been in the playoffs for a while.)|
|You can't live in Texas and not have a picture in the bluebonnets!|
|Waiting on Rascal Flatts!|
