mandee & me (10th grade?)

so mandee is one of my oldest friends. she moved to hurricane and right into my best friends neighborhood in (5th?) grade. in a few short years the other girl had moved away and happily mandee and i remained close. mandee and i both lived on the poor side of town when we were growing up – the snow often trapped us over there together. our moms work for the same company. we both lived with jen in college. we taught each other how to smoke. and in high school we dated best friends 3 different times. well actually i dated the same guy 2 different times and she dated his two best friends — (not at the same time! geez!) only mandee understands: pink sexy trees, the rock, a bonfire on the basketball court, why i don’t have many pics of her prior to 9th grade, and the importance of spiral mac ‘n cheese.

So Happy 27th Mandee! Don’t you dare think of it as getting old. Your just one year closer to what we like to call 30 – “The Age of Enlightenment” where all of our fucked up lives will start to level out and make sense – and if that doesn’t happen, I QUIT!… okay?

i love ya and i’ll see you around xmas time,

Finally I have uploaded so pics of the fabulous gifts sent from my mama for my birthday. I takes forever for me to do this, I really need to come up with a better system if I want to keep up with this journal at all. My scanner is all fucked up so I don’t have images for everything but here’s the majority.First is this really cool book of patterns for knitted & felted purses:

See that green one in the bottom left corner? She got the yarn to make that!

Real wool too!
This this bag of Mill Ends. I think that it is Lion Brand Homespun.

The whole bag was only 5 bucks so I asked her to pick me up a couple more skeins of the red so that I can make the sweater on the front of the summer knit.1 that I have been drooling over. You may remeber that I started this one with the black yarn that I recycled but I have since given up on that one because I just wasn’t happy with how it was turning out. Lastly ther was another pattern book, a cool knit with fabric purse kit, and a whole bunch of tools, including a pair of clover bamboo needles:

Thanks so much mama! Such a fun gift to open. Love ya!

Yesterday was my Birthday. It was also my girlfriend Jana’s Birthday. Here’s Jana and I on Saturday night:
The Birthday Girls
We have such cool friends! They surprised us with a limo so that we could all go out to dinner and then onto the clubs and drink all we wanted! Here is a group pic of Jana and I with all the boys in the back of the limo:

We thought it was funny that the boys were all squeezed into the back seat together while all the girls were all stretched out in the rest of the limo:
Boys in the Back
Last but not least, Marie. She knew I really wanted to go out downtown and she fought for me when all the married folks just wanted to stay in all night. Boring! Check out this pic of the two of us. I don’t know why it turned out like this but I think it is pretty damn cool!

Coming soon! Last week my mama sent me so much great stuff for my Birthday. I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of it and post it.
