Aw shucks Kim. . .

My adorable friend, Kim, posted about her journey to the top of my "Highest Commenter" widget today:) She started off not even in the Top 10 and I guess she didn't like that. So, she commented her little heart out for the past couple of weeks. I would check my blog each day and sure enough she had left at least 2 comments since the previous day just to prove her love to me! :) Not only was her post today just hilarious, it was sooo sweet(you made me get teary-eyed girl!). Her post really made my day. She is one of those people you meet in life that you won't forget and you don't ever want to lose contact with(and we haven't-yea us!). We met each other back when Aubrey was about 2 and we were living in Corpus. I was pregnant with Ella around the same time she was pregnant with her first child, Avery. It was fun to be all huge and pregnant together:) We were in the Primary Presidency together at church and thats how we really met and became friends. Our families along with the Zimmerman's and Morse's would have BBQ's together. Kim, remember that first BBQ where you, Erica, Kira and I talked in my living room about naughty things while the men were outside doing the BBQ and shootin some pool in our garage. Ahhh...those were the days:) After that day, I knew we were all meant to be buds:) Too bad we only got to hang out for like a year or so before we all moved other places:( I guess thats what life does sometimes. Kim, you are an awesome friend, an awesome mom, and an awesome gal! I'll be coming to Chicago one of these days so we can get that picture together(crazy that we don't have one!) And to go to Oprah(Erica, you in?)I love ya and miss ya a ton! Congrats on the gold! :) You truly are the Champion! (get it, your last name is champion? he he)

Oh No!

Jori said...

I will not be knocked out of the top 10!

Champion Family said...

I got my own post! Awww....thanks Holly. I really did take this widget highest comment counter thing to the extreme. It's the competitiveness in me. You don't get a last name like Champion for nothin'. :) WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS MY FRIEND! LOVE IT! And yes our BBQ's were tons of fun. I loved our dirty talk. Do you think our husbands were talking about the same thing?

Jori said...

That is great you guys have stayed in touch even though you guys live in different places. It makes life so much better when you find a good friend.

-Melissa- said...

Man, I better get my butt in gear, because I use to be #1. :)

Tara D said...

And so did I!

Tara D said...

Then Kim booted me off.

hoLLy said...

tara, kim got her own post because 1. did you see her blog today? she posted about this! she took pictures even. thats friendship baby.
2. she went from zero to HERO! that took real perserverance.

sorry i haven't recognized your number 1 status ever(because i know you were number 1 many times)but its a given. you are my sister. you should be number 1. actually joey should be. whats up dude? :) and my mom, where is she on the list? hmmmmm.....

Jori said...

Your hard work paid off! You are no.6 on my list!!!! You will probably always remember this day.

Marie said...

Allow a fat old lady to break in here! :-) I will never be number one but I will be heard! I think friends like this are wonderful. I have made so many lifelong friends by serving with them as either home teaching partners, or as a home teacher to, or as a member of a shared presidency calling. I think this is one of the most inspired things in our church and it helps to foster that wonderful feeling of family amongst it's members. It's hard not to be friends with someone you are praying for or with on a regular basis! Kim looks like a real sweetheart!

Look at everyone wanting to be #1 on your list.

-Melissa- said...

Amber said...

cyndi/mom/nana said...

Wow, some people are pretty dang serious on this blog sphere. Well, just want to say congratulations to the "Champions" and not sure who's next but good luck keeping up. Holly, I think your blog has hit an all time high on comments.

Jennifer said...

Alright people, we should be mothering our children instead of posting 40 times on Holly's blog....ha ha. Look what you got yourself into Holly.

Emily said...

Jennifers comment cracked me up! And now I am booted out of your lineup!

RD said...

You girls are being

RD said...

just

RD said...

plain

RD said...

silly!

jOeY said...

Yea Kim! I applaud your sheer determination. You're such a great friend to Holly.

Jan said...

Holy cow. 'Nuff said.

Champion Family said...

I never knew my post would have cause such a frenzy! 'Cause I'm Slim Shady, yes I'm the real Shady all you other Slim Shadys are just imitating...:)

What do you mean some people are mothering their children and don't have time to blog? My kids are around here...somewhere.

My words of advice is that you don't get to be #1 overnight. It takes hard work and dedication. Good luck to all of you, but even if you do become #1, there's no better song that can be played for you.

Zim Family said...

I love it!! We had some pretty dang good days together!! I am up for some Oprah. You just tell me when!! Look how loved you are! Makes my own heart go pitter patter.
