Wordful Wednesday: How to hang out with friends you haven’t seen in a long time.

By |
Wombs. (At Dave and Em’s gender reveal party last August…Matt and I were under the WRONG impression that Em was having a girl. Woops. Good thing Dave was on the right track!
Fruit of the wombs. Almost a year later.

Our Couple Besties (you understand what that means, right?) are Dave and Em. Or “Day and Mem” as Coco would say. We’ve gone through a lot with them. Many blog posts there. I’m not going to do the disservice of skimming through our friendship.

 But basically, when we used to live in Riverside, these were the people we called at 4:00 AM to pick us up from the side of the freeway when our car croaked. Multiple times. And we were the people that they would call when their AC crashed at 11:00 PM and the temperature was like a scene from Dante’s Inferno.

We’re the kind of friends that don’t care if it’s an ungodly hour; we just DO what we need to do to get us ALL through the situation. We laugh, cry, scream, and are even silent together. Ecclesiastes kinds of friends.

Anyways, we had a REUNION.

And we wore Moo Moos to celebrate! (side note, these are REALLY comfortable. I kinda get it.)


Here are some of the highlights…If you broke the day down it would be like this:

Hug. A lot.
Stand in front of fans as we all sweat.
Watch our kids nap, wake, eat, play.

***My doctor’s visit***bleh. Another blog post.

Eat multiple $1 street tacos. Hallelujah.
Disney store. i.e. Coco’s Paradiso.

Coco held up an Apocalyptic type of sign. I don’t know why. I just take the pictures.
The boys played dress-up.

We did too.

Sees Candies. i.e. Hillary and Em’s Paradiso.



Don’t you just LOVE being with true, old, nitty gritty, wonderful friends?

    This was fantastic, Hill! I am so glad you guys have eachother! You are both such incredible women! This just makes me so happy!

  2. hilljean

    Muah! we love you guys (obviously. I mean, you got a whole blog post). Hoping that the unfortunate turn of events with my foot allows a fortunate turn of events in terms of hanging out!!!

  3. hilljean

    And I bet after every time you hang out you remark on how wonderful they are. Its refreshing to have good friends ????

    I know! It takes quite a bit of coordination to make things happen–epsecially since we now live about 7 hours away from each other. But it’s so worth it to maintain those relatioships!

  5. hilljean

    yes, totally agree! there’s nothing like it in the world. ????

  6. hilljean

    It was so wonderful to spend time with you guys! We love you so much!

    it sure is great to have friends like these…they are hard to come by these days though ???? i’ve had girlfriends like these, but as soon as they got married/had boyfriends or had babies, they weren’t as “reliable”…lol.

  8. hilljean

    Aww! So sweet! The husband and I have couple besties too! We love them, would die without them.

  9. hilljean

    Definitely hard. But way worth it. These kinds of friends are rare–have to do everything we can to maintain it!

    It’s so important (and hard) to keep these awesome friends close at hand while the babies are young! It can be easy to be sucked right into toddlerhood and not look up for several years!
