“Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: ‘What?! You too? I thought I was the only one!'”
Have you ever stayed up super late with a girlfriend, gabbing about the most strange and random topics?
Usually along the way, you discover that you have something in common.
Like your passion for Target Dollar Bins and coconut milk ice cream and Old Navy flip flops and vacuum lines on the carpet.
As friendship grows, knowing this kind of information about each other allows you to show up on one another’s doorsteps with fun and thoughtful gifts ‘just because’, on a hard day, or on birthdays and half-birthdays.
**Because the best of friends celebrate each other’s half-birthdays (mine is July 25 – FYI). :-)**
In an effort to make more friends (and possibly receive more half-birthday presents – ha!), I put together a list of information about myself for you to review to see if we’re gal pal material…

I can go home after a C-section with no pain meds, but if I catch a stomach virus I am utterly incapacitated.
I tried broccoli for the first time when I was in college.
I sleep with my mouth wide open (super classy, according to the hubs)
I may or may not make my child clean his room, then go in later and re-clean/organize it. #controlfreak

Favorite movie – Enchanted.
I lived off of ‘chicken’ noodle soup, fried noodles and duck sauce from a Chinese restaurant near our house for most of my senior year of high school.
