This girl

Is coming to visit today! Can't wait to see her and her sweet daughter!

We've been friends since the 9th grade. She was my maid of honor. She's seen the bad and the good. She held me when I was at my weakest. And she'll be here to celebrate my 40th birthday on Friday!

Check these old photos:
1984 baby. The last few days of our sophomore year.

What were you doing in 1984?

Hey, Mad, those are great photos. Happy memories eh? So glad your friend is coming to visit, you'll both have a blast!
And I hear that you are off to Chateau Retzlaff for a summer holiday, all the best, have a wonderful time with your extended family, and I'll be looking forward to your return with lots of blogworthy stories.

Omg! D looks the same! Not sure if I'm supposed to use names or not on blog comments... hmm, please advise. Anyhoo, I was graduating from high school in 1984 and in May I got my 1st job at Arby's! (I remember because I started on my actual birthday) Coincidentally, I ran into my old boss, the owner of Arby's at the bank about a month ago! We chatted, I reminded him of how he let me drive his Corvette. He wanted me to manage his store, kept asking & asking, I was like um, I'm in college! (Mt. Sac before Cal Poly)... sigh...memories...

Giggle, giggle. Don't you love photos from the 80s?

In 1984 I was starting high school, using lots of Aquanet and watching Friday Night Videos.

Have a marvelous 40th!
