the other woman

so i stood there puzzled, frazzled not comprehending what was going on. i saw her face it was familiar but not registering in my mind who it belonged to, she was blond, cute, fabulous hair, and so familiar then it hit me. i was staring at my friend sarah, my friend sarah from utah. my friend sarah from utah who i was just thinking about, who i was just a couple days before getting sad about. i hadn't talked to her in a while and it seemed as though she was becoming more and more busy, i had just thought about how it was sad for me to possibly be loosing this friendship. then she was here in texas, sarah who did i mention doesn't travel, and certainly doesn't travel without her husband as far as i knew, sarah one of my sarah's was actually in my drive way in my car with my husband!

ian, what an amazing husband i have. so many times misunderstood. my ian who would do anything for me. my ian who's always trying to make me happy. my ian who believed me when i said that i needed a friend, that i missed the friends i had left behind, my ian who listens. my ian, my sneaky ian! ian had gotten in touch with sarah and was first thinking that he would fly her out to be a support to me in march for peyton's surgery ended up flying her out for my birthday. best birthday present ever by the way is to have a friend you honestly don't know when/if you'll ever see again show up at your door. have i ever mentioned that i love my main man? if not i love love love my little ian!

the next few days of summer were not our typical routine and i loved it! the next few days were spent driving around the city, getting caught in a tornado while trying to get gas,eating as much blue bell ice cream as possible, making gourmet pizza at home, getting our toes done, looking at blogs, felting, laughing, and talking talking talking. it was like we hadn't been apart for a day. i love those friendships.

the worst thing about sarah coming was having her leave. isn't that always how it happens? what a cool friend i have to take a few days out of her busy life and spend time away from her boys to come and spend time with me and my family,i couldn't dream up a better friend, thank you sarah!

here are some of our highlights, sarah surprise me anytime.
