A few weeks later, we made it for our friends Dan & Shawna when we went down to visit their new baby girl, Remy Ann. You see, Remy is Annalyn's first BFF. Not because she came home and said, "Mommy, I met a new friend and her name is Remy!" but because we are so close to Remy's parents that the two of them will grow up like sisters. Remy's daddy and Annalyn's daddy grew up in the same neighborhood and have known each other their entire lives (somewhere, there is even a pic of them in a crib together!). Shawna and I are pretty sure it was part of an elaborate plan that brought us together. We are about as different yet the same as two people can be. She completes me in a way only a BFF can.

**As an added bonus, it's only 7 points per sandwich when served on a light hamburger bun with blea cheese crumbles!
