Happy Birthday Madeleine!!

Today is the birthday of one of my favorite people. And since it happens to fall on a Thursday, I thought I'd do a little Throwback Thursday, Madeleine style. 

You see, our friendship has gone through many seasons. So let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we? We've had the "YOU LIKE TO DRINK? I LIKE TO DRINK!" phase.

We made a pretty dashing beerpong team, did we not? Alcohol, always the building of a solid relationship. But alas, we had to grow our roots a little deeper. So we ventured into our running season. 

And then, Madeleine realized that her knees were not huge fans of running. So we started a "let's make healthy dinners!" season. 

It was kind of difficult because right around the time I went vegetarian, Mad and her boyfriend Niko went paleo. Kiiind of hard to cook a meal that is both of those things, but you know, we made it work. 

And because we needed entertainment during our meals, we kicked off our "Friday Night Lights" season. 

We watched the entire series from start to finish. Or, I guess I should say they did. Because, I slept through about a third of the episodes. Whoops?

Madeleine is one of my favorites because she is always down to take jumping pictures:

Get In N Out to celebrate staying awake past 11pm:

Have a spontaneous dance party outside the car:

Be used as a prop in a photo:

So blurry, but how could I not include the picture where she filled in as Todo for this Dorothy shot? 

Basically, Madeleine is one of my favorite people because she is just plain awesome. And not just as posing as a little black puppy dog. And not just because our friendship survived my sobriety, though that is a big plus. 

Love you, Madeleine!! So thankful for your friendship, and for your blogtogropher skills (yeah, all the fancy fashion posts are due to her). You really are the best, and I'm lucky to have you!

Happy Birthday!!
