ThAnKfUl ThUrSdAy

I have a best friend her name is Whitney, I L.O.V.E. her!
And it was love at first site! ;)
Today's post will be ALL about her and her awesomeness.
(warning, pic overload towards the bottom)

I take you back almost 3 years ago, to July 22. It was a Saturday night, I was going to a bar to see the guy I was dating at the time. His band was performing. Now I'm a VERY shy person in "real life" and I had just met this guy a week prior so showing up at a bar alone to see this guy was really scary for me, I was very nervous. And of course when I walked in the band was already performing so I had no idea where to sit or what to do. I notice a pretty girl sitting alone at a table and she is looking at me like she already knows who I am (love at first site, ha!). So I figure what the heck and and I walk up to her. She's like are you Annie and I say yes, she says nice to meet you I'm Whitney. The guy she was dating at the time was also in the band. We hit it off right away and chat the night away. We decide to meet the next day for dinner. We talked for hours that night, enjoying drinks and wonderful food at Rainforest Cafe. I happen to mention to her I'm looking for a roommate and she tells me that she is living in an apartment alone and her lease is not up for 2 more months, bummer! We leave that night and continue texting all night and we keep in close touch and she ends up telling me that she wants to break her lease to come live with me! What an awesome girl! So needless to say she moves in within the next few weeks and we are instant bestfriends. We spend endless amounts of time together, she is the most awesome roomie ever! We have everything in common! Btw, band dude and I didn't date long. I knew Whit and I would be friends forever. She is really best! She is one the happiest most positive people I have ever met. She is always so bubbly and cute! Sometimes wonderful chapters come to an end so new ones can begin. She eventually moved out and my B moved in. Whit moved about 20 minutes away with her then bf (not her band guy). We still hung out and chatted all the time, of course ;) When her and her then bf broke it off she ended up moving far away, it was so sad and it still is! She lives well over an hour away now with her new best friend and her boyfriend now (whom she has been with over a year, they are so stinkin cute and perfect for each other). I'm quite jealous they get to live with her, at times I feel replaced by her new bestie. I miss her all the time but we are still bestfriends and we do still talk a lot. One thing that really sucks is that we only get to see each other maybe once a month. Every time we are together it's like we haven't been apart, I love that about us. Things just fall back into place and everything is wonderful like it used to be. So, my bday is coming up (the 20th) and I will get to see her on the 18th, I can't wait! Like, really can't wait I'm super excited!

I'm sure I missed a lot of important stuff about Whit but you get the jist of it. She is wonderful and I know we will always be besties!!

One more thing to share about Whit, one of my other bestfriends and her had a major falling out over 2 years ago and get this....they just started talking again! All because of ME, I sure feel special! They are talking via facebook and they decided to put the past behind them and they planned a birthday dinner for me. I love these 2 girls and I'm so glad that we will all be able to hang out again!!
READY FOR A MAJOR PICTURE OVERLOAD?!?!
The pics are in kind of random order...
















Next week for thankful Thursday I'll be posting on another one of my besties.....I have 3....4 including my BILLY.

Happy Thankful Thursday to all of you! You blog friends mean a lot to me and it's crazy to say this but as of the past month I think y'all know much more about me and what's going on in my life than my "real" friends/best friends. I love all of you and I'm glad we've "met" :) I feel like a small void in my life has been filled. You are all so darn sweet and I love reading your blogs! xo
