Which is correct? Well, first of all you would name the other person(s) first. -> My friends and I...
Both are possible, but the first is grammatically "safer", whereas the second is widely used in spoken language.

I and my friends...
Me and my friends...

Thanks
Have a nice day!

In recent years "me" has lost some ground. To the point even, where some people over-correct and use "I" in places where it should really be "me".
You're never too old to learn something stupid.
