you asked for it...

I completely thought today was Tuesday until I realized at 3:30am that it was Wednesday! I was super anxious (it's a trend for me) about my first solo surgery today...  but it went great and I rocked it! I am beyond happy and it was such an adrenaline rush!  

For the first week on 'we want to know wednesdays...'  the ladies are asking about 'friendships'. 

1. Do you make friends easily? 
It's so cliché to say, but I really do love meeting new people. My job is based around forming relationships with all different types of people which is my favorite aspect! Everyone has a story to tell and it's interesting to hear them all. 

2. What 3 qualities are a MUST in a friend?
Trust/Loyalty - I can them anything and they have my back! :) 
Honesty - Most of all my best gf's are pretty blunt with their honesty. I appreciate and love that about all of them. And know when a little white lie is needed ;)
Love - the word speaks for itself. :)

3. What makes YOU a good friend?
My passion. 'passion of the ashley' (yes people actually say this to me, ha!) I put my whole heart into my friendships. I make sure to give first and listen. I adore my friends! :)

4. Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life? Yes? Tell us about the meet up. No? Who would you love to meet?
I haven't! But I know some bloggy friends prior to blogging. :) Does that count? and I'd love to eventually meet up with some bloggy friends. 

5. Who is your best friend?  Tell us about them.
My little sister, Brittany. :) * (I have handful of bff's and don't think it's fair to single them out. I don't really 'rate' my friends and I'd feel horrible if I forgot one of them!) 

She's one of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met. Growing up we weren't very close (there's a 7yr difference) and after I graduated college and she was a little older, we quickly formed that bond (which I am soo excited we have!) She is growing into such an amazing woman (she'll forever be my baby sisssterrr). She's incredibly smart and as you can see from the pictures, she's gorgeous too! She's honest and will always put you first. She has a huge heart and is sincere in who she is and how she treats others. We don't get to see each other often, but I treasure the time we get to spend together when I'm home or when she comes to visit me!! (ok now I have tears in my eyes). I miss her terribly and I hope after she's finished with college she'll move by her big sister for her first big girl job! :)

I'm the blogger you've known BEFORE blogging!!! You've known me for years!!

That Aly is something else!! She has to be the center of attention, huh?! ;)


Now I'm curious what your job is. I may already know but my brain is on overload today.

I like your qualities. LOVE is a good one.

Passion of the Ashley huh? You must have a heart made of gold. Mine is more like silver with a little rust around it. Sad.

I wish I had a sister. That was so sweet!

Thank you so much for linking up!!!!

LOVE is a word that speaks for itself isn't it?!

i totally get what you are saying about leaving someone out. we discussed this question, and decided to keep it...even if people like IA and Shawn have 3 miles posts...LOL

thanks sooo much for linking up!!

I thought your answers were great... it is hard to single out BFF's... I felt odd only listing a few but really its a huge label and only people with big shoes can fill it.. but as I said in my post... everyone fits in the mold for different reasons.... hugs!

Date Girl said...

awww LOVE, good quality. That is so nice that you are so close to your sister. I've met far too many sisters that barely speak, but the ones that are close are there for each other no matter what. I really missed out not having a sis!

Mrs C with Style said...

I really enjoyed this post!! I love that you said your sister is your BFF, I wish I had a sister like that to share everthing with! You both are so beautiful, stay true to each other!

Shawn said...

Did I have a 3 mile post?...Guilty. Thats what they get for keepong that question.

I love that your baby sister is your bestie, or one of them. My girls are 5.5 years apart and fight horribly. YOu have given me hope that one day that may change!

I'm with IA. I need to know what you do? Are you a surgeon? Could you be on Grey's Anatomy? If so please do your best to nail, er I mean befriend a hot resident so I can live vicariously through you!

Thanks for linking up!

What a great way to put it. Everyone has a story, and it is a matter of learning about it.
