I've known this sweet demon for going on 7 years now and together we have been coworkers at two separate jobs, helped each other through major breakups, perfected our signature winged eyeliner looks, embarked on a neverending quest for The Perfect Chicken Finger, watched every awards show together, tipsy & shouting at the TV, cackled at a million awful after-work suburban theater movies (we saw XXX: The Return of Xander Cage and that's not even the worst one), snuck out of work early summer Fridays to go float in the Mount Prospect wave pool, gchatted with each other nearly every single day since 2010, sent each other pictures of our various gross bruises, and spent countless days at the beach, eating an often absurd amount of snacks and swimming in Lake Michigan even when it's only a shade above freezing. I'm so lucky to have this binch in my life. Here's to many more adventures! Happy 30th birthday, Debi! 💜👯🖕💅😎

They're playing "Gimme Shelter" and we're drinking rosé while bowling. Living my best life with @fluff_fluff and @h_nakenfis in Nashville. #spangly30

It is not truly summer until @fluff_fluff and I leave work early on a Friday to go bob gently in the waves while listening to mid-2000s pop radio. #livingourbestlives

Mr. Hooper, I’m not talkin’ about pleasure boatin’ or day sailin’, I’m talkin’ about workin’ for a livin’, I’m talking about sharkin’!

Hey guess what I'm still posting Iceland pictures. 😎 Seyðisfjörður was one of my favorite places on my trip. It was early morning when I drove up over the mountain to get there- the clouds were hanging low that day and it was so foggy that I couldn't see a car length ahead of me on the narrow, switchback-filled road (that had no guardrails and 150 ft drops! I drove very slow 👵🏻🚙) But as soon as I started descending, the fog broke and I saw Seyðisfjörður at the bottom of the winding road, like a tiny glittering jewel on the edge of the fjord. It was the first moment on my trip when I felt truly in awe.

My sister is the only person in the world who makes me laugh until I can't breathe. Everything is 1000% better with this little jerk around. 👯💜👯

This is Kirkjufell, *tour guide voice* The Most Photographed Mountain In Iceland! I think it looks like something from Middle Earth. #iceland #kirkjufell #snaefellsnes

The time I stood next to the biggest waterfall I've ever seen and was reminded of how tiny humans (literally) are. #iceland #westfjords #dynjandi
