'Cause You're My Best Friend

"My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me." 
-Henry Ford

Jess and I
I met my best friend Jess in the fall of 2005 when I visited my husband (then boyfriend) at school.  He introduced her to me and told me that he thought we would get along really well.  I wasn't so sure about this girl who liked to hang out with my boyfriend... Fast forward to the spring of 2006 when I transfered to the same school as Tyler and coincidentally up living in a dorm room down the hall from her.  I ended up not enjoying the company of my doormates and put in for a switch.  It turns out there was a vacancy in Jess' dorm room and I opted to move in with her. 

Fast forward again to present time and I don't know what I would do with out her.  She is one of the most genuine people I know, she would do anything for me.

So what does any of this have to do with this blog?  Well, back in college Jess and I had a friendly competition based on changing our facebook picture every single day! Yes, we were really productive in college. 

Yes, I am the color of milk and I don't know what either of our faces are doing here...

Fast forward (I'm getting a lot of use out of that term today) to last week when I had the brilliant idea to start a blog based on my daily life when I remembered that Jess has a blog like that, too.  (Visit her blog HERE!)  Now don't get me wrong, Jess is a busy graduate student and I know she has a lot on her plate but she doesn't post as often as I want her to! (Haha) So I challenged her to a blogging duel! Same rules as before... new post every day until someone either forgets or gives up.

I will admit that back in college Jess did win our facebook competition so I am really pushing to win this one.  Let's face it, I have a cute kid... how could I run out of things to post about?!

Good luck Jess! May the odds be ever in your favor!! Mwhahahahah! (Sorry for the creepy laugh, it seemed appropriate at the time.)
