Friendship: No Shame




This past Friday I got a hair treatment that forced me to sit with awful chemicals in my hair for 3 days straight.  My hair was a greased back, oily mess that stunk of formaldehyde!!  Disgusting is an understatement.
Damn you frizzy hair and this awful NY humidity!!!!

Despite being the hot mess that I was, Biff asked me to join him and his family to a fancy outing in the Hamptons.  We visited one of his family friends, went to to a Greek festival, rocked the famous Cooper Beach, and drove past homes so big we got sick with jealousy!
For those unfamiliar with The Hamptons, it's the summer home to the rich and famous.  Think Revenge!

We all enjoyed ourselves, the environment, and the company.  But, the best part for me was, even though I looked gross, Biff told me I looked beautiful and was seen in public as my best friend!
...and to think I was going to spend Sunday counting down the hours until I could wash my hair...

How does your best friend make you feel awesome?

  1. I don't have a best friend or any friends in reality. Not so bad. No one to let down or disappoint.

  3. so how come you two never hit it off? Biff is not beefy or something? :)
    I feel awesome when I get any kind of positive emotion from anyone, so that includes my best friend too!

    1. Aww, Biff and I love each other, but we grew up like brother and sister!! We wouldn't want to ruin that bond by dipping our toes into deeper waters. :)

    2. I have the same question as Dezmond. Biff is hot!!!!! BFF with benefits maybe??????

    4. ooh, I'm all for that BFF with benefits thing.... I'd give a Nobel prize to the one who invented it :)

  4. Sounds like vvvv is jealous LMAO could not help myself.

    And always nice when a friend can make you feel good, even though your idea of gross is a tad ummm way more than most people hahahaha

    1. No, Pat, this time my idea of gross was spot on. Even Biff's mommy was like dude, you need to take a shower. You're hair is so full of chemicals that it looks wet with grease!!! hahahaha What we have to do for straight hair... ;)

      Yes, it's always nice when friends make you feel good. I agree, I agree!!

  5. Sounds like you had a great time! I'm jealous cause I've always wanted to see the Hamptons.

    My best friend makes me feel totally relaxed. As a guy, it's so nice to have someone that shares your interest of sometimes just watching the football game and not being expected to talk at all, and if you do, it is very shallow.

    1. Yes, we had so much fun!! The next time you are in NY, you should take a ride out to the Hamptons or Montauk. The Hamptons is where all the rich people play, but Montauk is so gorgeous :)

  6. Lucky ducky! It's great that you have a friend like that.

  7. Yay for good times and great friends! My best male friend always makes me feel good when I am feeling crappy.

    I am totally going to the Hamptons when I come to New York. I need to check that place out for at least one day.

    1. Good times and great friends are awesome!! Aren't male friends awesome? Well, when they are like Biff they are anyways ;)

      Yesss...you must go to the Hamptons! It's so nice. You'll love it.

      Ohh, I looovvveeee my hair now!!! It's so flat and SOOO straight :) :)

  10. Aw, you two look so great together! This is super pushy of me, but I think you should rethink the just friends thing...whats better than a boyfriend who started out as a friend and who tells you that you're beautiful even when you look all smongy? And he's really cute! Okay, done being nosy :)

    1. Why, thanks Kianwi!! I agree that we look great :) hahaha

  12. Ooooh Hamptons! Lucky girl! I've never been there or Montauk, or really anywhere on LI (except the Nassau Coliseum!) Hope you and your BFF had a great time. I'm sure your hair looked great after that 3 days of goo! Totally worth it, right? Oh, the things girls do to look pretty....

    I actually have two very different bff's: my BFF is the more serious one. He knows me better than pretty much anyone and I can talk to him about *anything*. And then there's the less emotional, more fun BFF (I refer to him as my "brother from another mother") who is taking me out for a much-needed day trip to Boston. Can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that!

    1. Yes, the Hamptons!! It's lovely out there and Montauk is even more gorgeous (with down to earth people). Montauk may be one of my most favorite places in the world. What did you see in Nassau Coliseum? Ohh, and that 3 days were TOTALLY worth it :)

      Sounds like you have the perfect balance of friends!! I love that!! Ohh, Boston?? That's one of my favorite cities in the world. So clean and the home to my Patriots!! Enjoy, Enjoy :) :)

    2. I saw the Islanders at Nassau, about 10 years ago. They lost to the Oilers I think. I'll def. have to get out to Montauk one day. And I'm sure I'll have a blog post or two about my Boston trip :)

      Delete
    3. The Islanders always lose!! hahaha Yes, make sure you get to Montauk!! I can't wait to hear about Boston. I love the whole atmosphere of Boston. Enough people to be fun but no where near as crowded/dirty/overwhelming at NY!

  16. I mainly know about the Hamptons from watching reruns of Seinfeld. I don't really have a best friend. I am the real life Charlie Brown.

  17. Aaah. It's lovely to have a friend like that. I think male friends can be so much more genuine than female ones. They look out for you.

    Have you still got sunshine? We still have rain :-(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, they can certainly be more genuine!! I have a couple of great female friends, but as a species...women can be catty and jealous.

      We still have sunshine! It's been crazy how hot it's been!!! Still have rain? I'm sorry, girl! I hope your skies clear up real soon. :)

  19. That is very sweet of him Jax.

    My friend helped me in tough tough tough times. I was running low very low in self esteem and my friend really helped me to get back on my feet and gave me interest to continue life as well. It is a pretty good thing to have friends whom you can call anytime and whom you can trust. I feel lucky and proud to say that I do have friends - friends whom you could trust and stand with you and not judge you and make you feel comfortable.

    Anne's badass figurine dedicated to me made me feel special and awesome too :)

    1. He's a sweet guy!! Your friend sounds just as awesome!!! It funny how when you think about it, it's so easy to pinpoint your TRUE friends. :)

  21. Sissi makes me feel awesome just by being around. haha I can totally be myself and tell her the most disgusting, embarrassing stories that I can think of, and she'll try to find a way to top it instead of laughing at me. Having somebody like that, who will turn around and say you're beautiful or great, that's just what friendship is all about.

    1. Ohh...I already know all about you and Sissy...hahahaha Glad to hear that you have such a wonderful friend :)

  22. PS I love seeing these pics of you! I'm a sucker for pictures so it's always a treat.

    Your weekend sounds fun- formaldehyde included to be quite frank, haah. Glad you had a friend to pull you from your funk and make you feel good- that is the best! Well that and the couple seconds you let your mind wander and actually imagine you live in those houses... ah.

    1. Yes, that's something I have to work on!! People like to see the faces behind the blog. I need to get on posting more pictures :) Glad you enjoyed it!!

      Oh, the formaldehyde was the best thing I've ever done!! My hair looks so good that I don't recognize myself... lmao Yes, good friends pull you from a funk!! Those houses are GORGEOUS!! I can't wait to go back!

  25. Wow, that hair treatment sounds like torture! :-o But it sounds like you had a fun outing in the Hamptons (I’ve never been but have certainly heard of the area). Best of all was the wonderfully sweet comment of Biff’s! Long after the sting of the hair treatment is forgotten I’m sure you’ll still remember the way his words made you feel. :)

    My wonderful husband and daughter are my best friends. Aside from love, the best thing we share together is laughter—lots of it. They make me feel awesome because they put up with me and still love me even after I continually use them as blog fodder. LOL

    1. That hair treatment may have been torture for those 3 days, but right after it was AMAZING!! I can't tell you how much easier and less frustrating my life has been since. I'm going to make a post on my hair asap. It's totally worth the post. I love it!!!

      Oh, they sound lovely :) Glad to hear that you have an amazing support system!! It also goes to show that best friends aren't limited to simply "friends".
