B Stands For Bench

I have mentioned before my dear friend B (that stands for Bench) but I thought that today might be the perfect day to share with you why B in fact stands for Bench. You see, that's how we met. We were in a play when we were in high school. We went to different schools but knew each other through our church. Where we practically lived during our high school years. From Sunday School to numerous choirs to Habitat to our spring Broadway-style plays to a zillion other activities. We were there a lot.

Anyway, it was play season. And we both had crappy "cast member" roles. It was Annie Get Your Gun- the world's most boring show by the way! So B and I were of course in the background of many scenes. And spent like half the play standing on either side of this bench. Our big gig was moving said bench from one side of the stage to the other. And eventually back again I believe. It's a wonder we are not on Broadway with our super-star skills, B! I mean, seriously. That should go on the resume. Bench moving. B and I actually took to calling ourselves "bench movers" for a long long time. We still bring it up. Yes, we both earned better roles (hard to believe one could get better than a bench mover, but trust me it is possible!) in the years to come but this was how we met. And became the best of friends. It was me, B and a bench. Three cheers to getting a loser nothing role in a high school church musical!

So that was ....I don't know....let me think....1995 maybe? A long time ago for sure! And we are still fabulous friends. She has the most amazing fashion sense and a fantastic figure to boot. She is scared of the kitchen but is lucky enough to have a hubby who is awesome in the kitchen so it all works out. She's a great puppy momma to her Black Lab Dixie and an even more amazing friend.








As further proof her her amazingness as a friend... look at what arrived today! I had this bag in my hand two times on Sunday. But I didn't buy it. For who knows what reason because I woke up yesterday missing the bag. Wishing I owned it. But drats, I am giving up shopping for non-essential items for Lent. And while I think all things Lilly are essential, God probably doesn't. But somehow she (and her hub....but I am going to go out on a limb here and assume she did the choosing all on her own) knew I would want and love this bag!!





B, you are a super-star friend! Even if we will never make it to Broadway, you are a headliner in my book!

Cute bag, cute bench story!!
Just wanted to let you know I was in Manchester yesterday and ate at your little place Ponce Gourmet.
You're not kidding, that place is awesome. We even had dessert and it was some of the best sweets I've had in a long time.
Creme brulee bread pudding (made with croissants and baguettes!!!)
and home made Hostess cupcakes!
Holy moly, so good!
I didn't email you cause it was a last minute trip to the hair salon. Next time though!
