#BBFF Weekend in Review

In case you missed it, Kristen and Smith came to visit me this weekend.  In case you missed it, we recorded a drunken vlog {to which I now realize you can't even hear really, sorry bout that}.  In case you missed it, we had TONS of fun.  Like a lot.  Like I got emotional dropping them off at the airport yesterday.  Like I may have had tears in my eyes.  And then I remembered that Dr. Seuss quote, "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened", and I was happy again. Needless to say less than 3 days wasn't long enough and we're already planning my trip to Fort Lauderdale in the near future.
We shopped,we ate {Kristen even made dinner Saturday night}, we swam, we drank {obviously}. It was perfection.  Like the best girls weekend I could have ever expected.  It wasn't weird, it wasn't awkward, it was just awesome.  I mean we have been talking every day for over a year now so it wasn't even like I was picking up a stranger and her kid, even though I kinda was.  Even Jimmy didn't think it was weird.  
The babes?  I mean it was love at first sight, literally.  They were strolling through the mall holding hands in less than an hour.  Quite possibly the most heart-melting moment of the weekend.  I'm not lying when I say Kendall played better with smith than she has any other friend.  
Kristen is me but with dark hair and blue eyes and a way flatter tummy.  She's hilarious, doesn't take this parenting thing too seriously either and I love that I don't need to buy bottles of fancy wine for her.  She even brought me a gift, do you see that adorable little birds on a wire picture holder? I die!  Love her!  
Smith was a total sweetheart.  He let me hug and love on him like he'd known me forever.  Being around a boy is way different than my girl, but in a fun way. That boy is always on the go and he's so funny.  I think it's safe to say I love him as if he were my own.  And that's the truth.
Like I said, {not even} 3 days wasn't long enough.  We crammed in as much as we possibly could {and as much as our livers would handle}.  I want her to move here, hell I want her to live in my spare bedroom.  Is that too much to ask for?
