One of my good friends from Pensacola, Tracy came to visit me this past week during her spring break! We had such a great time. On Thursday, we ate at this cute little cafe outside in what is called "the art district," then we went to the mall and then went to dinner at Red Lobster (we all used to work there together). We drank a lot there and the bartender took care of us if you know what I mean! We used to get the hook up all of the time in Pensacola, because Len knew everybody there, pretty much. So, I think Len and I are going to make this a regular thing. On Friday's we'll hit up the Rho Lambda, as we alumni like to say! Friday, Tracy and I ate lunch at McAlister's, which is the best lunch place ever! Then we tried on bridal and bridesmaid dresses. I still haven't found "the one." After that, we went to Barnes and Noble and looked at magazines and drank starbucks. That night we all ate at Outback (Tracy said that she was craving red meat, lol!) After dinner, thanks to the influence of margaritas, we went to this place downtown, called "The Mix" which is a small club, and it was really fun.
We danced our booties off and got the lame people in there on the dance floor. No one was dancing before we got there. Tracy and I lived up to the inevitable "box bitches," not to be confused with "booth bitches," which is a whole other situation (Jo understands). One of Tracy's guy friends says that we are what he calls the "box bitches." These are the girls who can't go to a club or bar,etc, without getting on the stage, or pole, or in the box, or whatever the featured prop happens to be! hahaha, when she told me about this theory on "box bitches" I started cracking up and then I was like, yep that's us! The next groggy morning, we ate at the Cracker Barrel, yummy! Then she left that afternoon. The whole time she was here, we just had the best time with each other. I forgot how much we used to goof off. We always quote things, and we will have new quotes for a period of time, until we come up with another one. The last time she visited me the quote of the weekend was from that Capital One commercial with the two old fat ladies on the couch, "Shoot, yeah, shoot." This week it was "Meet me at the mall...it's goin down," among many many others. I guess you would have to be there, but it is so funny. We crack each other up and just laugh constantly when we are together. It reminds me of how it was back in the day when we were glued at the hip. Our boyfriends were best friends with each other and we would always be together, going off and doing our own thing most of the time. Now, neither of us have those boyfriends anymore, but we are still good friends. I miss good friends like her. Living here in Chattanooga, it isn't so easy to find friends like this, friends that are girls like me, who do not have any children yet, who are still young, yet professional, and still a little immature, and like to have a good time just keeping each other company whether it be at the mall, a restaurant, drinks at the bar, or whatever! I am a pretty easy-going person, but it is hard to meet good friends here. Maybe I'm being too broad in my depiction, but to me the people here seem like they are ready to settle down with kids at such a young age, and if they don't have kids, then they're still in school. They all have their own groups of friends already and don't want someone new coming in. I guess this stage of life that I am in is sort of the in-between stage, and it is hard for me to find anyone else that is in the same grouping. Anyway, I didn't mean to go off on a tangent like that. The point of this blog is that I love good friends and I can't wait to see you all again, hopefully sometime soon!!
