Having a best friend is truly a gift. Having a best friend whose children become your children's friends is well, entertainment. This is Becky. Not too long ago on an fabulous vacation we experienced Broadway, discovered edamame, and enjoyed room service.

Becky and I have been friends since 8th grade. I'll never forget the first time I saw her. She was new to my middle school and had the cutest dimples I had ever seen. We became instant friends and learned how to break hearts and handrails. In college we kept each other out of trouble while having more fun than should be allowed. Over the years Becky has taught me the meaning of unconditional love. She may be small in size but you'll never find a heart as big as hers.

This is our entertainment. You can only imagine how long it took to get this one picture:)

Martha + Oprah = BFF

Martha Stewart was on Oprah yesterday and I watched it after the kids went to bed so I could absorb every detail. The show took us on a trip through Martha's jail time to her home in Maine. I learned how to fold a fitted sheet, set up a grilled cheese bar for entertaining and even got an itch to craft. Oh how I love the idea of Martha and Oprah being friends!

At one point Martha mentioned she had plenty of visitors while she was serving time but not Oprah, she was too busy. However, here is how I imagine the meeting would have gone...

Oprah: Martha, you look so thin!

Martha: Thanks but I miss my crab cake panini something terrible. And lemon, can I just get a little lemon in my tea?

Oprah: I should have known to bring you lemons. I did bring you some books, though.

Martha: Thanks! Eat, Pray, Love? Can I skip the eat part? I do not think my taste buds can handle it.

Oprah: Oh, Martha, you are too funny! So, is your cell, um, clean?

Martha: Not before I got here but now it is sparkling. You would never guess how hard it is to get good cleaning products in the joint. How's Stedman?

Oprah: The same. Any cute guards here?

Martha: Not really, but my ceramics partner has lovely cuticles.

Oprah: Well, that is important. Sorry to have to cut this meeting short but you know how running an empire goes.

Martha: Goodbye dear friend. I hope you will visit in a couple of months when I am on house arrest.

Oprah: Certainly! Especially if you serve your double chocolate chunk cookies. See you then!
