Happy Tuesday

As many of you know my bff is Hermes, an extremely demanding, high maintenance pain in the ass girl I met in college. We were oddly paired as roommates at Lake Forest College. Hermes, also named Allegra, liked sleeping with the window open at night, I felt it was too cold. Hermes had to fall asleep with music on, I couldn't sleep until it was off. These are all questions we were asked on our roommate questionnaire, why had they put us together when obviously we answered these questions the exact opposite. There was an area on the bottom of the quiz where it said "Other?" My biggest pet peeve in life is when people chew with their mouth open, so naturally I put that under other. So did Hermes!

Hermes is turning 40 on Saturday and my family and I are going to Connecticut to celebrate with her. She may be a pain but she is also one of the most generous, funny, and fun people I know! She is a terrific mother, the only thing she ever wanted to be when she grew up. I love you Hermes!

  6. Genuine (even if they are a pain in the rear) best friends are so hard to come by. Most of my friends are the opposite of me, but that is what makes spending time with them sooo much fun!! I hope you all have a wonderful time celebrating!! ~Vanessa :)
