Best Friend Giveaway

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I'm so excited to announce that Live.Love.Random. is hosting the cutest giveaway! And it's our first giveaway! Jessa at Confessions of the Cupcake Countessa  & Owner of the really cute Etsy shop Caked, has made some beautiful best friend bracelets to giveaway. Her shop if filled with fun vintage clothing and up-cycled original pieces, be sure to check it out! 

So in honor of these Best Friend bracelets we also wanted to share a little bit about our best friends...

Eeka & Jamie
What is your best friend's Name?
Jamie Lynn 

How long have you been friends?
22 years

What is your favorite memory?
Every memory we ever made at Disneyland! We both had year passes with pretty much no black out days so we pretty much lived there.That picture above was taken at DL in 1993. We had sleepovers all the time too! We were inseparable. 

Did you ever get in trouble together?
One time when we were younger (Elementary School) we got the bright idea to change our grades on our report card. So Jamie ended up with all A's. Her parents double checked with the teachers and she was grounded for 3 months. She was in so much trouble that she wasn't even allowed to play with me at school!

New Hampshire 2009
Where is she now and how do you stay in touch?
She lives in Las Vegas and I live on the East Coast in Vermont (next to New York) it is so hard to see each other! I flew back home to Cali in 2010 and took a road trip to Vegas to see her, and before that I met up with her when she was on her honeymoon over here in New England. We talk almost everyday and we also Skype!

Do you have something you both cherish that keeps you close when you far away?
All of our childhood pictures :) She still has all the BFF bracelets and necklaces I bought her too.

Jessa & Stephanie
What is your best friend's Name?
Stephanie aka My Lil Clover

How long have you been friends?
15 years

What is your favorite memory?
I would have to say our honeymoons!  Our anniversaries with our boyfriends we very close together and so were our weddings.  We planned our honeymoons so that we would meet up about half way through them and celebrate together.  Had to be some of the greatest moments of my life!

Did you ever get in trouble together?
Technically, no.  Though I did get in a lot of trouble and Stephanie did get me out of a lot of trouble!

Where is she now and how do you stay in touch?
The strange thing with Stephanie and I is that a majority of our friendship has been spent on the phone.  We grew up in different crowds but were always there with each other once the school bell rang.  I think this unique friendship is why we know each other so well.  Even now we live within an hour of one another we rarely see each other although we talk almost everyday!

Do you have something you both cherish that keeps you close when you far away?
Yes, we requested that our wedding photographer take similar pictures of the four of us at our weddings.  They are so dear to both of us and remind us that we are always near even when far apart!

 Ok so here is the giveaway info...
