To My Yoga Buddy

And coffee getting, wine sharing, forever venting friend

OK, so I called you my yoga buddy because you're probably the only person that I can hold a half pigeon pose next to and you can feel my pain from the next mat! We have also both almost disrupted an entire yoga class together by trying to keep a straight face and not laugh our asses off at some of our failed attempts to get into the fancy positions.

But, let's be honest, those cute yoga BFFs that's are fitness goals on Insta — totally us! But truly one of my favorite parts of the week is yoga and coffee time spent with you! We laugh, we catch up, and we vent about pretty much everything under the sun - and usually make a deal to drink a bottle of wine together the next day and, well, vent some more!

From sitting together in what seemed to be the worlds hardest Geology lab to the "oh hey we both have cool tattoos" conversation, you became one of the greatest friends I've met throughout college! We share a love of overpriced coffee, study procrastination, an overwhelming hate for pickles, an enormous fear of the future, and did I already mention wine??

I also have a low key obsession with your dog! Anytime that I'm in need of a good friend, someone to have some girly chats and the usual "of my god you will not believe what he did" talks, I know that you're always there. And even though life can get super hectic and we both know what it's like to chase our own asses with school and work and everything in between, I know that you're always at the other end of the phone!

So I just want to say thank you, thank you for always being down to have fun, always being down for downward dog, and always being a bomb ass friend! Here's to you gal

XOXO

An Open Letter To My Unexpected Best Friend

You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better.

“It’s so amazing when someone comes to your life and you expect nothing out of it but suddenly there right in front of you is everything you ever need.”

-Unknown

Dear Unexpected Best Friend,

You were the person I never thought I would speak to and now you are my very best friend. You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to shape me into the person I am today. You’ve taught me what it means to be selfless, caring, patient, and more importantly adventurous.

You don’t realize how much better my life has become and all because you came out of nowhere. I didn’t see you coming. I just saw you on occasion, and now I can’t see my life without you in it. It’s funny how life works itself out like that. Our unexpected friendship filled a hole in my life that I didn’t know existed.

I don’t even remember what life was like before you came along; it most likely had a lot less laughter and spontaneity than it does today. I can call you about anything and you would drop whatever you're doing to help me in any situation. You know when I need encouragement. You know when I am at my best and when I am at my worst. You always know exactly what to say.

I couldn’t have found a better friend than you if I tried. We balance each other out in the best way possible. You are most definitely the ying to my yang, and I don’t care how cliché that sounds. Because of you, I’ve learned to stop caring what people think and to do my own thing regardless of any backlash I might receive. You are my very favorite part of what makes me who I am to this day.

It’s as if I wished up a best friend, and poof—you appeared right in front of me. I am so beyond blessed to have you and I wouldn’t trade the world for all our memories. Thanks for coming out of nowhere.

Love you forever and a day.

10 Things You Know To Be True If You Are The Mom Friend

"Packed us brain food for the lib!"

280

Everyone has one, everyone loves their one, and sometimes you might just be the one, the mom friend that is. If you hear yourself sounding like your Mom (which for me, I am not mad about at all) maybe five times each day, chances are you are the Mom friend. If you are the one, here are ten things we all know to be true, even if we wouldn't like to admit it sometimes.

1. You know everyone's schedule

"Hey we have class.. like now"

2. Color coded, everything

From schedules, to do lists, and to notes...everything has its own special color.

3. You know when a stressful test is coming up for your friends

And you will be there for emotional support every step of the way.

4. Hourly to-do lists

You know your day, your roommates day, and all of your friends days. So, you know when they are missing.

5. You make sure all of your friends are well fed.. Even if that means giving them your food

Friend doesn't like something in the dining hall? Here, try this! *Hands them your plate of food*

6. You help your friends do the adult stuff, like going to the bank

"How do I use the ATM with my credit card? It won't work?" This is a job for the Mom friend.

7. Need neosporin? White out? Color coded agendas?

We have them, and some to spare.

8. Make sure all of your friends get to bed after a night out

Make sure they get home, take off their makeup, and tuck them in for the best sleep of their life.

9. You can make DIY ice packs and basically save a life

Friend falls? Rough night? Mom friend will have that ice pack ready in no time to avoid bruising

10. Snacks, always

"Don't worry guys, I have the brain snacks for the library."

To all my fellow Mom friends, here is an appreciation for you. All jokes aside, the Mom friend truly just cares so much for each and every one of her friends and just wants the best for all of them. Sometimes, we care a little too much for people for what we may receive in return, but that's all good, what are the Mom friends for? Plus, American Eagle really dedicated a whole brand of jeans, the Mom Jeans, to us, so who can complain
