Breanna and I have been friends for, what feels like, forever (in a good way!). I think that a lot of times through blogging/reading blogs you get, somewhat, introduced to "characters" but their story is never really given the opportunity to develop. So, I thought it might be fun to give a little more insight into Breanna, as her own person, and also our friendship. This little exercise was actually quite informative and entertaining for us too, which is always good.
1. How and when did you meet?
A: high school. although we weren't friends at that time - not even close! that story is probably long enough for it's own post entirely.
B: I know that we met in the summer of 2003. We met because she was the BFF of the guy I was starting to date at the time (ew). I do not recall our first actual meeting, but I can tell you it was a lot of love and hate before REALLY loving each other :-)
Thank god that guy is gone now... ew.
2. What is your favorite memory together?
A: we have so many amazing times together... picking one is really difficult.
I think I would have to say that my favorite is probably from my wedding. she went to work that day! she helped me take my underwear off when it didn't fit. she helped me in the restroom. and she even reached WAY up my dress (no underwear remember) to undo my corset thing when I thought I might die. she was also the one that helped me finally get out of the dress at the end of the night.
I think it's my favorite because of how much I was counting on her, and how she
B: This has taken me the longest and still I find it impossible to answer.
Her and I have known each other 11 years. Been true best friends for lets say...at least 7-8 of them. Her and I have basically been through it all. She is truly the only friend that I am never scared of losing because I know it won't happen. The only reason I know this is because we have lost each other, more than once, but we always come back.
My favorite memory? All of them. From, her threatening to set my pants on fire back in high school to standing next to her on her wedding day saying "I do" to the perfect man for her. I'm the girl that had to take her to her own wedding engagement and NOT let on in anyway what was about to happen. Maybe that's one of my top favorites. lol she was in straight bitch mode until she actually realized what was happening.
Basically, I love her. Always will. She's my beef.
3. Describe each other in ONE word.
we fight sometimes, sometimes I might feel like shes falling down on the bff job (probably jealousy), but I always know that she cares and means well. she is a good person, even when she doesn't feel like she wants to be, she just really can't help it.
B: Tough one but I'll go with "commonsensical".
She has her crazy moments, but I give her mad props on her constant attempt to see every situation from BOTH sides. That and she can always bring me back to a calmer place in my head when my anxiety goes haywire and I panic about my life lol
4. What's your favorite makeup brand?
A: oooo what a tough question! I can't pick just one, so I will pick one high-end and one drugstore brand.
high-end: probably... benefit? (yeah I really don't think I can pick one thing... I'm not very committed)
drugstore: L'Oreal or Maybelline (i suck at making decisions)
B: Cheap! But no seriously, I do wear makeup but I'm not loyal to any one brand. I buy whatever looks good at the time. However, I suppose I have a lot of E.L.F. Like I said...cheap lol
5. What is something that annoys you about the other person?
A: if Breanna is in a place where she is just not ready to hear what you are saying, she will read a text message and respond to the one portion that she can argue with and completely ignore the rest of what you are saying. it is her way of denial without denying lol
B: The moments when she's NOT willing to "hear you out" or "see your side". When she not willing to accept your side of a story or whatever, she basically shuts out anything you try to say to convince her and she makes this FACE. A face that makes me want to slap a bitch.
6. Have you ever liked the same person?
A: hahahahahaha. probably more than once. it's far too embarrassing to name names.
B: I guess technically, yes. But at different times.
The guy I mention in question one- she dated for like....a month? But before I had known them.
Her liking him apparently was short lived, his, not so much. He still confessed his love for her while dating me.
7. If you could go anywhere in the world together, where would it be and why?
A: every time I go anywhere new with Aaron, I almost immediately want to go back and take Breanna. we (almost) always have such a great time doing nothing at all, that I know she will make any vacation more interesting and more fun.
currently I would have to say California. seeing California with a girl would be a much different experience than what Aaron and I had.
B: Honestly, I know her and I have already experienced NYC together. However, a dream trip, with her, would be another trip there. Just her and I, staying in a super nice hotel room on the upper east side, and just being able to live like upper class New yorkers for a short while lol
Basically, if our lives could temporarily mirror the lives on Gossip Girl, I'd be thrilled.
8. Who takes longer to get ready in the morning?
A: I think it really depends... if we are getting ready for something together, then I definitely take longer. but in general, I find myself waiting on her ass all the time!
B: if we aren't being lazy as shit, easily her. Her hair alone can take her probably an hour. I can shower, dry and style my hair, get dressed and do my makeup typically within 40 mins.
9. Favorite Season?
obviously. it has the cutest outfits and all the boots!
B: I am not a person who can ever pick 1 favorite of anything. So, my answer will consist of both Summer and Fall.
Basically for all the typical white girl reasons.
10. Heels or Flats?
A: is both an option?
of course I love heels more because of the looks, but I am a wuss and mostly wear flats for comfort.
Don't get me wrong, I still suffer from being in a lot of pain in heels but I can't stop the addiction. My body still has improving to do but my legs are one of my best assets and when I put on a tall pair of heels, hot damn ;-)
11. Pants or Dresses?
A: when I am shopping, dresses almost always win over. when I am getting dressed I rarely wear dresses at all. I am forever in a struggle with myself.
Amanda does not consider those to be pants but I CAN NOT stop loving them. It has actually gotten to the point where people actually think I look odd when I finally do where jeans.
12. Android or iPhone?
A: iPhone all. day. long. I have had my share of Android phones and they were all garbage, could be user error but whatever, my iPhone has never let me down!
B: umm. I dont really care either way. if I like it, I like it, regardless of brand.
I do currently have an iPhone though.
13. What is something weird that you eat?
A: I can eat an entire jar of pickles in one sitting. or bacon, extra sharp cheddar cheese, and pickles...
B: There are plenty of things I am sure, but truthfully, the VERY first thing that came to mind is mashed potatoes mixed with corn and ketchup. Yes. Its true.
I have, in the past, mixed these 3 ingredients together (MANY times) and loved it.
14. Do you guys have anything matching?
A: we usually like to buy completely different things so that we can always share... but I'm sure we have something that matches.
B: I'm sure we do. Nothing of major significance.
We do, very often, exchange clothes back and forth. Sometimes just to borrow temporarily, other times, its been something like me giving her back a garbage bags worth of clothes that she had "donated" to me 2 years previous.
15. What's your favorite Starbucks drink?
A: hot: tall nonfat white mocha.
cold: grande nonfat iced caramel macchiato.
sometimes I get soy too... depends on my stomach that day.
B: BRAH. Hands down, Granda Non-fat Salted Caramel Mocha Frap with whip.
if I get extra caramel, even better. But that salt....omg.
Salted Caramel Mocha trumps Pumpkin Spice Latte.
