The B&G story

It all started over a shared taste in fashion.

Their story began at a party at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Shannon (on the right) saw Missy (on the left) and complimented her outfit, the very same outfit that she had purchased that day. It was a conversation starter, and they quickly became friends. Within 10 minutes, Missy revealed that she was looking for a new place to live. Coincidentally, Shannon was looking for a roommate. 

So they became roommates... and best friends. Over the next several years they celebrated good times and created many incredible memories including too-many-too-count "laugh until you can't breathe" late nights, girls' road trips, and of course, tailgate parties.

They graduated and moved away, but never grew apart. Missy moved to Tampa, Charlotte and Dallas, then finally settled in Atlanta. Shannon moved first to Charleston, SC, then to Winston-Salem, NC.

The late night laughs continued (although now, over the phone). The girls' road trips continued (although now they sometimes included husbands and kids). And the tailgate parties, OF COURSE, continued.
