These girls....

Are my best college friends and the greatest women I know. From left to right - Megan - who is headed off to Physicians Assistant school this fall and works in Alzheimer's research; Andrea - who is getting married in September and is such a fashionista; Me - well I'm not going to brag about myself, other than I love the jeans I have on here; Sarah - Who is the married lady of our group, a wonderful listener and going to Grad School in the fall for Marketing. We don't all get to see each other as often as we did in our years at college, but when we do its always a great time! We went to our fave Mexican Restaurant El Vaquero and hit a few bars downtown after dinner. We all met living together on the first floor of our dorm when were 18 and we've been the best of friends ever since! I can't wait to see what happens with all of our lives this year!

And on another note: We started the step down vegetarian diet this week and its going well. Monday I made turkey meatballs, homemade pasta sauce and whole wheat pasta; last night was fish, garlic green beans and perogies and tonight I'm making a spinach salad with lots of veggies. I figure if Andrew gets sick of it he can cook his own food on the grill! I'm still on the hunt for great recipes and thank you to everyone who commented on my last post! I did check out a lot of those places!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Writers Workshop!

I could never be a vegetarian because I HATE veggies! LOL however those turkey meatballs and pasta sounds good!

I am slowly growing to love veggies but this summer I imagine it will be much easier since we are having a potted garden!

I love when you get together with friends you haven't seen in a while and you can pick up right where you left off. It's such a beautiful thing! Glad you guys had a good time.

I'm intrigued by this vegetarian thing. I've basically cut beef out of my diet, but my hubby loves his hamburgers, so I don't know if he'd be on board. I might still check out that book, though.

Reading your recent menu just made me really hungry. Especially the perogies! :)

I would totally suggest that book! It tells you ways to cook if not everyone in your household wants to be a vegetarian!

And you're right about those get togethers - its like I just saw them yesterday!

Life just wouldn't be the same without girlfriends. And on a sidenote, there's no way I could change over to a vegetarian lifestyle without the support of a couple of girlfriends!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed the post about my horrible first kiss! I hope you'll come back and visit again soon. Have a great weekend.
