f is for friends who do stuff together

About a month ago, I got a surprise facebook message from my amazing friend, Jordan.  Her husband and she were going to be in Idaho for a wedding and were thinking about dropping down into Wyoming to visit on their way back to Nevada.  She asked if that would be okay and my response was along the lines of ummm...HECK YES!!!

Two of our mutual favorite things include:

These dudes

and these dudes

Fun fact: The picture of JD is about 2 1/2 years old and from like our second date.  It is literally the only current-ish picture I could find on his Facebook of him alone.  And that isn't even his fedora...

Jordan and Jay got married the year before JD and I did.  After I got married we joked that we married the same guy in different sizes.  Both of our husbands love them some video games, sci fi, reading, all of the good stuff.  Jordan and I married total nerds, and we love them all the more for it.  

Jordan and I have been friends since....probably elementary school-ish?  We've been really good friends for about 7 years and our friendship just continues and continues.  You know how people say that you'll never see the people from high school again?  This is true for about 90% of the people I grew up with.  However, I still have some amazing friends from high school that are still my absolute best friends on the planet, even though we're all spread across the country now.  
It was pretty much an amazingly fun two days.  JD and Jay both had someone to obsess over the new Pokemon Games with, Jordan and I had a mutual married friend to be around and talk to.  We played an enormous amount of Nintendo games (P.S. Jordan and I hate Waluigi, and we're fairly positive both JD and Jay somehow cheated at The Game of Life), ate delicious food, watched General Conference and just had an overall amazingly fun time.

The overall visit was just a glorious escape from our everyday lives and got me thinking about how amazing it is to have friends.  Friends are the family that we pick for ourselves.  We're able to connect and build relationships with the people around us.  In my opinion, it is one of the greatest blessings we're given.  Society is built on people creating relationships and working together to create a better world.  And I'm really grateful to have friend and be apart of that.
