RN kimbo / the naughty nurse

"Are you upset little friend? Have you been lying awake worrying? Well, don't worry...I'm here. The flood waters will recede, the famine will end, the sun will shine tomorrow, and I will always be here to take care of you." -Charlie Brown to Snoopy/[RN Kimbo to Emz]

This post is for my dear friend "Kimbo".  A post I've dreamt of writing for nearly two years. 

We have a bit of a volatile history.  Why?  I'd say mostly because of this one word:  competitiveness.

Not like "I want what you have" / keeping up with the Jones's kind of competitive.  but like this,  this [where I actually had to remove her comment it made me so mad]thisthis, & this competitive.  She's pretty great.  Four kids.  Crazy [like crazy amazing hiker {rim to rim anyone?!}], great cook, a nurse [like in real life] and training for her second marathon in October.

But, you know what?  I don't even want to think about what I would have done without her these past few weeks.

I adore you RN Kimbo.

Emily! This is a great post! I love it. And I loved reading all of those links. Competition between friends is a good thing, keeps you coming back for more. Thanks for this. Makes me want to write a tribute to my #1 bra!

oh my gosh that charlie brown quote - what the hell??? why do you get me choked up like all the time? Ahem... anyways I am super competitive but if I can I don't tell the other person I'm competing with them. Makes it easier to win....

Few things are as intriguing in the blogging world as a comment deleted by a blog administrator.

Also, what are the detachable sleeves for?

Gotta go with my the hub's as my fave bra! The best supportive bra any girl could wish for!

Stacie said...

I LOVE this post. So great. We all need an amazing bra for support. I LOVE mine.

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

Yay for great friends! My bra is my very best friend Kiki. We've been friends since elementary school and I do not know what I would do without her! :)

Adam said...

It may sound like a cop out, but my biggest bra is myself! I am my own worst enemy both good and bad.

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

I am crying. First, tears of love. Then, tears of laughter. I'm your bra? What an easy job I have! Now, if I ever call you my bra, you have one tough hill to climb (and post-four-kids-that-used-to-be-livelier boobs to hold up). Thank you for this. It means the absolute world to me. Keep your momentum!

My wife!

This is the best post! I love it!

My buddy Beth is my support bra for sure! She totally helps me get out the door in the morning for a ride or run, and is always willing to keep an eye on me when I am OWS.

Kenley said...

Support Bra? hmmmmm. lol. Well, not literally for me, I hope anyways. But my best one is my loving wife, always pushing me, and my last name is Jones. Hahaha. Glad you have a great friend for support, and I have added this site to my blog roll. Love your posts.

My hubs is my BRA, but so is my gaggle of girlfriends, we've been friends since we were 14, and call ourselves the Fab Six!

Petraruns said...

My husband and my BFF - Dawnie - are my bras - but hey, so are you! Reading you perks me up!

Will said...

problem for us guys is our BRAs give support but they ain't so close to the heart! But then again we don't have hearts....Great quotes!

Jennifer said...

My Bra... mmm I'll have to think on that one,as far as running is concerned I am a loaner, but in life my sis Steph is all that for me. Great pictures. BTW, your abs blow me away!
