One thing is for sure...

We can still make each other laugh.

Disneyland : 1971

That headband I'm wearing scares me. Seriously.

A memorable trip to Cancun Mexico - 1987
I was married just 2 years later.

My BFF Theresa, stopped by my store for a visit on Wednesday. It's been about 4 years since I've seen her but we've known each other since the 3rd grade. We were inseparable during the 60's and 70's. We were best friends. We had matching 10 speed bikes. We hung out at the roller rink every weekend and skated to Strawberry Fields Forever. We developed crushes on the same boys, but we rarely fought. We dressed alike and shopped in the boys department. Levi's, Hang Ten shirts and Wallabees. We listened to Neil Young, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and the rest of the greats while we gazed at our bedroom walls covered in black light posters. We tanned baked at the beach in pure baby oil, which I now regret. Geez..from my expression it appears I was regretting it even then! be young, carefree and skinny. :(

We're a lot older and a little wiser. Married with one child each. We still live in San Diego, but rarely see each other. We stay in touch via email and my blog, but she doesn't have one yet so I'm trying to convince her to start one. Hopefully we will be scheduling a lunch date once a month. We need to make each other laugh again. Okay Theresa? I'm not saying let's put on a bathing suit and run off to Cancun, although that would make for some great laughs. I know you are reading this. Let's not make it another 4 years. How's June 18 or 22nd sound?

Thanks for sending me these photos and giving me the best belly laugh EVER.

Oh my gosh....I love all these pictures. The headbands are back. I was at the beach yesterday and two high school gals had them on.

What a special friend. I can see you guys rollerskating right now!

Hope you are enjoying the weekend!

I think maybe you were wearing the headband to keep you bangs from curling up! At least that's why I would have had it like that. Very funny pictures. Aren't you glad Theresa still had them? Makes me want to find pictures of me from the 70's. Well, maybe not. Anyway, I hope you guys can manage to see each other again soon!

It was great to see my Ole BFF this day and to visit The Attic ~
What a beautiful place! Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Had a few good laughs, lots of good memories but most of all thank you for the friendship we
share. When did you say that plane to Cancun was leaving?
And yes, we must make a better effort to get together. See you soon my friend.
