Friday with friends=FUN!!!

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad.

A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow. If you want to cry, I’ll be your shoulder. If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow. If you need to be happy, I’ll be your smile. But anytime you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

True friendship is like sound health, the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.

There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is friendship.

Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.

It is the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.

Hold a true friend with both your hands.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.

A friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself.

Friday, we had Ashley and Matt over and like always, it was a blast. I grew up with Ashley and her sisters. Lisa, her mom used to babysit my brother, sister and I for years after my mom's accident. I have so many fond memories with them :) Funny thing is, she has the same name and she married a Matt also. How cool is that!

Ashley made this really good crockpot chicken and caramel cheesecake for dessert.It was to die for! I made sure I worked out extra that day ;) Matt had fishsticks for Lent, but the next morning he was anxious to have leftovers for breakfast lol.

I just love having them over. They are genuinely good people, who you feel comfortable being yourself around. That's why Matt and I agreed that Ashley would be a great person to be Bella's Godmother. I can't wait til the day she tells me they are going to have a baby. They will make wonderful parents someday. I love you guys!
I had to take a picture when she told me that she even made the caramel homemade! Now that's what I call homemade with love :)

Here are a few pics from when we were little.

She loved the cheesecake! She told Ashley it was "Ummy" :)

These are from earlier in the day.

Alaina is obsessed with baby wipes. I'm not sure if it's because she likes to be clean or maybe the smell, but she often has one in her hand.

Last but not least my Belly boo :)
