Reunited....and it feels so good!

My dear friend, Cindy, from the good ole Singles/Institute days just started blogging.(Yea! everyone in the whole world needs a blog I say!) I just came to realize she only lives 30 minutes away from me! I hadn't seen her since she was married like 7 years ago! So, I emailed her and our other friend from back in the day, Anayansi, and planned a little brunch/get-together for this morning. It was SO GREAT to hang out with my old buds! Anayansi and I have kept in contact over the years and get together every so often, but I hadn't seen Cindy in sooo long. It was awesome to see her again! She was as cute and sweet as ever. It was also really cool to get to meet her adorable little boys, Braden and Spencer. Ella, Braden and Anayansi's daughter, Jenna, had a great time playing. And us girls all had a great time gossiping, er, I mean chatting:)

Anayansi, Cindy and me, back in 2000 (Hey Tara! I see you in the back there too:)

Here we are today! We look even hotter than we did before !)Thanks Ella for taking the picture for us! You are a great photographer:)


A few of our kiddos: Braden, Jenna & Ella. Its weird how between the three of us, we now have 7 kids! The time sure has flown by fast. I still can't believe its been that long since we've all gotten married-its crazy. So much has happened since then.


Thanks guys for coming over! Hope to see you again soon!

How fun to get back together with old friends -- I love that! And you're right -- you are all hotter than ever!!

Cindy said...

Wow! I don't think I would have recognized either of them if I saw them in a crowd. It's amazing how time flies!! I'm glad you got to "reunite" with them.

Photoshop!!!! I took a photo of my kids walking down the street holding hands, found a beach shot- and BAM!!! 100% great shot..

We have only been to the beach once in our lives... but that is how I would pitcure it ;)

If you give me a photo of your kids, I will do the same for you if you want...

What a bunch of hotties you are! It looks like you had fun!

Emily said...

Oh how fun!

I miss some of my old gal pals from HS and church. Some of them I have lost contact with. I wonder where they are! Others, I still keep in touch with, but it is so fun to get together for a big shin dig and rehash old times. Makes me miss AZ!

How wonderful that you were able to get together with your old gal pals!!! I wish I had grown up in the church. I know that when I did join it was the right time for me. I could not have done it sooner as it would have broken my heart to lose my kids earlier than I did, but I really wish I had grown up in the church at times. Then I probably wouldn't have had to lose them at all, coz I'd have probably married a member! Oh well, that's life! You are such a sweet lady Holly and you have a wonderful family. Hey, when is your mother in law getting back from NY? I am missing her!

No way Anayansi I'd have to say I win for most improved...my hair (pre-straitener days) it looks like I air dryed it...or something! That was soooo much fun getting together with you girls! We definitely need to do it again!
