Friday's Fancies: The Girls' Gift Edition

11/30/2012


Happy Friday my sweets! Today's Fancies isn't really fancies per se, but is dedicated to some special girls in my life: My cousin Angela and my two sweet friends Nikki and Amy. They all share November as their birthday month and I love picking out girly little gifts for them each year. Here's a little bit about each one:

Angela (November 20): My "twin" cousin. We always dressed as twins when we were little and had to have the same stuffed animals, same shoes, same pretend names, same hair styles...you get the idea. She's super cute, stylish and just had the cutest baby boy in September. When I think of Angela, I think of pretty flowers, Earl Grey tea and Disneyland.

Nikki (November 28): My best friend since forever (or since 4 years-old), but honestly what's the difference? We are both short - I think she's 5'1 and I'm 5'0. We talk every single day whether it be a text, a phone call, a heytell message or email. Or all four. Since we both became moms (our daughters are 6 weeks apart) I've relied on Nikki for keeping me calm, for listening to me vent and for cracking jokes about the realities of motherhood. When I think of Nikki I think of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, cute bangles and Spain.

Amy (November 30): My college roommate, who turned into one my closest friends. The first night in our dorm room at UC Santa Cruz we stayed up until 4 in the morning talking. We probably could still stay up till 4 in the morning talking...if we weren't sleep deprived parents. We both love to sleep in (not really a reality anymore...see previous sentence), we love chocolate, red wine and we both married boys who lived on our same dorm floor that first year. When I think of Amy I think of Tool (the band), cats and dancing.

Happy Birthday girls! Thanks for being in my life, you make November that much sweeter.

Oh I loved reading about your college roommate! I am still so close with my first friend in college (she didn't become my roommate until later) and I hope our friendship lasts as long as you and Amy.
