Favourite Thing- Co-Workers Turned Friends

Anyone who knows me, know that I am a social person. When I lived in midwestern, rural Ontario, my social life left something to be desired- I was making one friend a year who was only in town for a short time.

I switched to my second job in the area, meet some wonderful, amazing and fun ladies, who have turned out to be some of the best friends a girl could ask for.

When we were co-workers/friends, we would go out for dinner about once a month. It was just a time for us to socialize in a non-worker environment. I left that job in May and later moved to southern Ontario. Facebook and texting has kept me touch with these ladies, but I haven't seen them since June!

I had to make the trip back up here to pick up some clothes for a wedding this weekend and I thought I should have dinner with these ladies while I'm in town. They were nice enough to clear their schedules and join me for dinner at Boston Pizza. 

I had to drive an hour and half to get here, I burnt the rough of my mouth on goat cheese & spinach dip, ate so much food that I was uncomfortably full and will have to get up at the crack of dawn to make it into work on time...being with amazing friends, getting caught up and the laughter was more than worth it.

While I think about and miss them on a daily basis, I didn't realize how much I missed them until we were all together again.

Our dinners are one of my favourite things and I hope we can still do them often.
