Bye Bye Britt

Pin It!

Brittney's visit home has come to an end.
She's been in graduate school in Scotland and is heading back today. 
For her last weekend in the states, Kandi and I drove to Jessica's in LA and Chelsea flew in from San Francisco. 
I could never really explain how great of a time the five of us have when we get together.
To give you an idea, Kandi and I arrive to Jessica's to find that the girls have choreographed a dance for us. 
Chelsea, Brittney and Jessica to Robyn's Call Your Girlfriend
Then it was champagne, talking and more laughing. The thing is we've been friends since we were 14 years old and when we get together, we only know how to be 14. Which includes rapping to Tupac at least once during every get together.
{Everytime Changes by Tupac came on at a party in High School - we would stop what we were doing and rap the whole thing. We then requested this rap at Chelsea's wedding, and then my own and what do you know? Rapped the whole thing in the middle of the dance floor.}
Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle, because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
2001 Chels in red, then Britt, Kandi and Me. We were too cool in our Arnette sunglasses.
Jessica made reservations at Pancho's in Manhattan Beach. You guys, if you haven't been - GO. Not only was it magical and dreamy inside but the food was to die for. 
This is all actually inside...made to look like the outside.
It was a terrific night with terrific friends. And even though the 405 freeway closed down and we didn't get home until 2 in the morning - I would still do it all over again. Love you ladies!

And P.S. Here's a little snippet of their dance:

And still I see no changes. Can't a brother get a little peace?
There's war on the streets & the war in the Middle East.
Instead of war on poverty,
they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.
And I ain't never did a crime I ain't have to do.
But now I'm back with the facts givin' 'em back to you.
Don't let 'em jack you up, back you up, crack you up and pimp smack you up.

What a cute post! I love being able to have those girls you can always run to, that no matter where you are in life everytime you get together its like you have never been apart!

and, and I MAY be able to come to the blogger meet-up! I didn't realize it was on a Saturday! I figure my husband could come and wait around and then we could see san diego the rest of the day!

Aah, I love it!!

That's so great that you guys have been friends so long, and it looks like you had a BLAST together. Makes me wonder which (if any) of my friends will stick around for years to come. I hope at least a few of them do, because I'd love to be able to get together and have a blast like you guys did!! ;) Oh, and the dance? Epic. xD

Your blog is adorable, by the way! And thank you for checking out mine; I'm so glad you're interested in my project, can't wait to see your photo(s)!! :D

I am giggling watching that video because I would TOTALLY do something like that! I used to make up dances all the time when I was younger and I still like putting on dance shows for my husband (yes I am weird) but I will do dances I learn in zumba and make him sit down and watch haha. Looks like such a FUN girly weekend!

Sounds like tons of fun!

Emmy June said...

OMG...the dance moves are *too* much. Sounds like a blast!!! You know you miss California when a reference to the 405 makes you feel nostalgic.

Hahaha, you guys are crazy! I had such a laugh now!

Liz Brown said...

HOW special. Seriously. I wish I could get 5 of my besties together all in one room like that. :)

I love the picture from 2001.

Kasey Lynne said...

Let's be IRL friends JUST because you can rap Changes. So rad haha...okay and maybe for the old school Arnette picture.

But seriously, this is a great post. These type of friendships are hands down, the BEST.

p.s. you and your friends are gorgeous.
