25 Truths.

These are the far as my girls and I know. I tried to poll them all on what they know to be 'truths' but three of them are slackers, three of them are awesome and responded, and two of them I forgot to ask. Oopps


Can you guess who hooked me up? I'll give you a hint. One has red hair. One has curly hair. And one has bright blonde hair. The brunettes are slackers. So is the one with the red lipstick. And yes, I am falling over in this picture.

As you can see, I have some gorgeous besties. They're an eclectic group with lots of different interests, life stories and goals. But they have one thing in common -- they put up with all of my nonsense. And as far as I am concerned, that makes these ladies pretty awesome. And wise, if I do say so myself. You'll see.

Anyway, I saw on another blog where someone had written a list of 25 things she knew to be true. I was on my way to the gym so I decided to think of my own list while I was staring at the elliptical and trying not to count the minutes. I only managed to come up with eight items of my own so I had to enlist the help of my counterparts. Here's what we got. Feel free to nod your head when you agree. 

Then try and make your own list and see if you can get past eight. Let me know how it goes.
