This weekend I'm flying down to West Palm to see my best friend, Kim! Actually, we'll be in Wellington where Kim's parents live (and where my very own Mr. D grew up).
We have a weekend full of wedding planning and appointments and I have designated myself Kim's "B" (you can figure out what that stands for). I will also be attending a Bridal Shower, in honor of the beautiful bride to be, Sunday hosted by her sister and Aunt's. I love spending time with Kim's family so I'm over the moon with excitement!
Kim and I met back in the 'ole college glory days while we were both at the University of Florida. We were in the same pledge class (Tridelta shout out! Hey-o!) and just instantly clicked. To this day we still talk about how random it was the way we met and instantly felt as if we had known one and other forever. Before our Gator days were over we lived together for a year and I must say it was one of the best years of my life.
When the two of us are together we can have a blast while performing the most mundane tasks. We swear we can read one and others minds...or maybe it's just the looks we often exchange that give what we're thinking completely away. Not to mention, our occasional "alter egos" so often come out to play when we together. :) We love to travel together, cheer on our Gators, shop till we drop and we may occasionally dance together at weddings and various events.
I met my Mr. D through Kim. They grew up together and stayed in touch when we all lived in Gainesville. Throughout our wedding planning process Kim was at my side to help me make decisions, de-stress or provide a shoulder to cry on. She was my "B." Now, it's my turn to help her and return the favor. In just three short months my "Kimmy Green" will be walking down the aisle and I couldn't be more excited for her and the lucky guy (we love him...even if he is a bulldawg).
The night of the engagement! Mr. D & I were lucky enough to be a part of it.
I don't know how, but is seems nearly every year since college Kim and I end up some place together around the time of Spring Break. Hence, I am dubbing this weekend "Spring Break 2011." Now it's time to pack my bags and see y'all later! (I'm thankful to get out of the Kentucky cold...even if only for a couple of days.)
Everyone should have a "Kim" in their life. I know I would be lost without mine.
What are y'all doing this weekend? Anyone have any real Spring Break plans?
(My sister is going on a cruise and I'm super jelly-cat about it.)
