This post is dedicated to "The Hob"

So, as most of you know, "The HOB" refers to Heather and Bob. Heather and I met in the A&M dorms in Briggs Hall during our freshman year of college. Kristen and I moved in, and looked over at our neighbors' door, which was decorated with Plano SENIOR High pictures. We, being the cool Plano EAST girls that we were, couldn't believe that we traveled all the way to College Station to meet some snotty West side girls. But then Heather and Stacy started blaring the Dixie Chicks, and we all decided to become best friends.

Fast forward 6 or so years. Through many Pat Green songs, many drinking games, and many workouts. And Heather and her husband Bob (who has become one of my best friends too, b/c he's just that cool!) moved across the street from us. Heather and I had, for many petty and silly reasons (too many on my part!) had drifted apart. Then her and Bob got married and moved to Dallas. And we all hung out occassionally, and became friends. Then they decided to move to Lake Highlands. And a home ON OUR STREET became for sale. So I suggested they buy it. And they did! ;) And while James was helping them move in, they discovered that their fridge would not fit in the opening made for it in the kitchen. James suggested they tear down the wall and rebuild it. Bob was in. And a man friendship was made!!!!

Since then, many projects between both households have been completed. Some requiring the assistance of the fire department, some just taking longer than plannned. But through it all, we have made life long friends.

Anywhoooo, the point to this post is that we know we are so lucky to have such great friends live right across the street. And the fact that their daugher will be born in July is even that much more exciting. Her and Audrey will be best friends!!!

Which is why I started this post . . . the HOB offered to watch Auds last week so James and I could go to dinner. These are the cute pictures they took. :)
