3 year best friend anniversary: the story of dena and makenzie

the story of dena and makenzie :

makenzie and dena met their freshman year of college. they were across the hall dorm neighbors. dena had taken some summer classes before the start of freshman year, so she already knew a bunch of folks, and to put it plainly she was POPULAR. makenzie didn’t know anyone, and was intemidated by dena and her BIG personality. little did makenzie know, dena thought it was cool how she propped her door open with text books and WOW she had a macbook – automatic pointage.

on their first incounter makenzie tried to weird dena out by telling her she hear that people get their lips and eyelids sewn shut at Numbers Nigh Club. dena showed off that she had never seen any of that the times she had been there. they had impressed the other and although they didn’t talk much again until the next semester. they were fast friends.

during the week of january 25 2010 – dena and makenzie had their first week of being best friends. they went out every single night that week  and were the center of attention  at every single venue. (actually everyone probably either thought they were annoying or invisable now that they think about it.) anyways the beginning of that week was three years ago today and as tribute to their friendship – here are some pictures from the past three years you’ve probably NEVER seen before in your lifetime.
