13 Types of Friends

I was reading Holly's blog the other day and loved her post about the differnet BFF's she has had through the years.   It all stemmed from this Buzzfeed post.  I took a look at the post and thought to  myself "Self, you should totes write about this".   So I am, I just may not do all the types of friends because some overlap!

1. Childhood Best Friend
I met my childhood best friend at the bus stop when we were in Kindergarten.  Ashley's dad and my mom met and introduced us.  We lived across the neighborhoood from each other and rode the bus everyday.  We would meet up on the weekends and play and play.  Our favorite game was House and man did we have lots of babies.  She also had a trampoline that I would have killed to have.  We were friends till the dreaded days of middlee school when drama tore us apart. I think she is married now and maybe has a kid? Not sure but I totes should go Facebook stalk her...

2.  High School Best Friend
Oh Annie! We met our sophomore year of high school and were inseparable ever since.  We met as Key Club officers and had so much fun together.  Our personalitiies perfectly balance each other.   She can be quiet and I can be loud.  She keeps me sane and is the reason I got through High School.  She knows my family and has even traveled many times with us. We went to two different colleges but have still stayed in contact.  We should see each other more now that we are in the same state.  This is definitely something I want to work on.

3. Neighborhood best friend

4. College Best Friend
This one has to be the hardest one to choose. I was so blessed to have many best friends in college.  Yes many.  So I am going to give you two (mostly because a third falls into another friend category).

The first is Lauren.  This girl and I could not be more opposite if we tried.   Honestly if it wasn't for alll the stuff we have been through who knows if we would still be friends.  But those times bonded us and I could not imagine life without her.  I am the emotions and she is the brain.  She tells it to me straight even if it hurts and is not what I want to hear.  I am thankful to be able to call her my friend.

The second is Ashlee.  She was one of my first college friends.  She has been there through it all and knows everything.  She gets me so well and always knows the right thing to say.  We have had our ups and downs, but have each other's backs through it all! She is coming to visit in two weeks and I cannot wait to have her here!

5. Work Best Friend
Brittany and I started at Golds within two weeks of each other.  I hated her at first and hoped she wouldn't last. I  mean come on she was a skinny bitch who worked at Wing House.  And then we became best friends.  Because well, all bitches have a way of bonding!  I love her now and I am so thankful to have her in my life.  She definitely made my transition back to Florida easier and I do not know what I would do without her!

6. Parents
I love that this list included my parents.  They are the people who have been there through everything.   They have watched and helped me grow into the person I am today.  I am so thankful and so blessed to have had such amazing parents.  They have been the best role models and supporters I could ever ask for.  I honestly do not know what I would do without them!

7. Siblings
Oh the Hardin 4.  What would I do without those three awesome siblings of mine?  Mattie, Benjamin, andd  Bryce are the three best kids out there.   We were the type of siblings that could say all the meanest things to each other, but no one else was allowed or they would have the Hardin's coming after them!  I know I will always have those 3 behind me suppporting and loving me through everything and I will be doing the same for them!

8. Twentysomething Best Friend
I'm only 22 so I'm skippping this one!

9. Powerhouse Best Friend
Uh don't think I have one of these!

10. Long Distance Best Friend
This is where another college friend comes into play.  Lauren lives the furthest away from me and it makes me sad:(  She is the person I turn to for everything. She is the friend that we can sit and talk about anything and everything for hours.  Or we can just sit on couch reading books and be happy.  Lauren is the one that we don't have to talk all the time to know the other will allways be there.  But I know she is the one 20 years down the road I will still be calling for everything!

11. Furry Besst Friend
Brutus. Beez. BB. Big B. Hims is my best friend.  I love this kid more than anything and don't know what I would do without him.  He is the best cuddle bunny and always has me laughing!

12. Your Significant Other
Yup don't have one of those.

13. Best friend forever and ever
Please see #'s 2,4,5,&10

I love me some best friends.  They are my rocks and I my life depends on having them there.  I have been blessed with the best of the best of best friends!
