Beth and Heather’s story

My Best Buddy – Beth and Heather – Wilfrid Laurier University

Beth and I have been friends for almost two years now, and we love spending time together! We always laugh, sing and dance when we are together. In the fall, Beth and I went to Toronto with my Mom and another Friend for a “Girls Day Out” to see the Lion King. We had such a great afternoon, and Beth got to stay in Milton at my parents’ house with me. We also went to Cambridge to see a production of “Grease” with some of Beth’s friends. It was a fun evening!

Last year Beth and I used to swim a lot together (Beth swims with K-W Special Olympics). I don’t swim anymore with Beth, but we still get together afterwards for pizza, movies, and nail painting. Eating pizza on Fridays has become a ritual to us!

We have also gone out for dinners, including Swiss Chalet – our favourite – and out for movies. We both enjoy crafts , looking at pictures, and talking about boys.

Although we are both busy (Beth has THREE jobs!!!) we always find time to talk on the phone and hang out !

We are hoping to go to a local dance club one night soon to dance the night away!

Love, always,

Beth and Heather
