Hey Loves! I’m glad to have you stop by the blog today. After three attempts of my laptop shutting down on me, I sure hope you enjoy this post! I’m back wearing this adorable olive green bomber jacket again. I always reach for it when I head out the house. Its great finding those “trendy” yet practical pieces to incorporate in your wardrobe. I have a feeling this bomber jacket will be worn plenty, trend or not! I’m also wearing my favorite leather jogger pants. These pants are one of my go to’s. For $15, you better get you a pair NOW!! Its nothing like comfy pants (drawstring waist anyone?) you can wear day or night and feel like a fashionista!! I’m also loving my sunglasses. Target always gets me in the accessory aisle. These “cat eye” sunglasses are no exception and I am happy to add them to my collection.
A few weeks back, I wrote a blog post called “Twenty Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I spoke on how cautious I am with friendships. I wanted to touch base on this a little bit. I’m 34 years old and I have had a few experiences on failed friendships. One: my best friend that I had known since high school, decided that she no longer wanted to be my friend after I got married in 2009 and I haven’t heard from her since. How did that come to be? I have no clue and couldn’t tell you! Two: my college friends/roommates and I had a huge falling out, partially over an idiot boyfriend I was dealing with. I saw a side of my “friends” that I didn’t like or trust. In looking back, I wish I never met the guy! Maybe if I didn’t, I still would’ve been friends with these ladies. But, in my heart I knew it was a good thing that the “friendships” were no more and I have no regrets.
Finding friends as a woman is completely different then men. Men can bond easily over sports, Playstation games or any other random topic. For women, it takes an open mind to be willing to connect with another woman. As I said in my previous post, I didn’t make friends until a year after I moved here. Its important to have solid friendships you can count on. Someone you can share things with and be yourself. So today, I want to encourage you to evaluate your friendships! Are you pouring into them more then they are pouring into you? Do you feel in your heart this person has your back, cheers you on and loves you? Do they show signs of envy? Mistrust? Is this friendship only for a season or a lifetime?
It was in my heart to share with you some of the different types of friendships in my life currently that I love and would not change for the world.
1) Can call at anytime and talk about absolutely nothing
2) Haven’t talked in months or years but can pick up the conversation like nothing changed
3) Text buddies: life is busy and a phone call may take too much effort. But, a text is just as fun too!
4) The friend who cheers you on, share your deepest secrets and is proud to be your friend
5) The friend you have known all your life that you can talk about childhood memories and experiences with from way back when.
I saw this quote on Instagram and boy, did it resonate with me!
“You don’t need a certain number of friends. You just need a number of friends you can be certain of!”
Tell me your experiences with friendships! Do you have the same “types” of friends that I do?
