¡feliz cumpleaƱos!

just want to wish my baby sisters a very happy 22nd birthday! i love you guys, more than you will know. thanks for letting me boss you around. i'm sure that is why you are the amazingly strong and beautiful women you are today. (you are welcome.) also, and most importantly, thank you for being my friends. i love and am grateful for your friendships, even though you abandoned me here in northern utah. again, happy birthday!

i'm sure i was excited to have baby sisters, but i'm convinced they scared me, too...only based on this picture, though. look how i am trying to stay clear of them, especially the one screaming. julie is on the left and laurie is the screamer.

this is laurie...the older of the two.

and here is julie, my baby baby sister.

the three little girls...despite all the jokes we've made lately about my complex as the middle child, i wouldn't change a thing for the world. i love that they are my baby sisters...i mean, look how freaking cute they are...why wouldn't i love it?

happy birthday...love you girls!

btw...they aren't 22. just in case you weren't sure. it's an inside joke.


bring it on.

i have so very much to write about, but i just don't have the time. i just decided to give you a rundown of what i really want to write about...maybe you can remind me that i need to write the posts i want to post.
  • i got to go to lunch with an old friend/neighbor. she is adorable and i always laugh way more than i should. and on top of the fact that she can entertain me with her pinkie finger, there was a random weird experience that cracked us up.
  • i took my older sister to a tony lucca show (really, it was a tyrone wells show and tony just opened, but you get the gist). and she liked it. and we had fun. and there are good pictures.
  • i got to take my nephew, jesse, to his first rock concert...and it was his favorite, daughtry. quite the experience and i love that i got to share it with him. in fact, i may have been more excited than he was. plenty of pictures to share and priceless quotes.
  • i'm so over the weather. twice this past week, i woke up to snow. ridiculous, i tell you. ridiculous.
  • i went to the most amazing jay nash show ever. at least, the most amazing jay nash show i've seen. it was stellar and i loved every minute of it and i loved that i got to go with some amazing friends. man, sometimes it just doesn't get better than friends and some great tunes.
  • and last, but most definitely not least, i'm leaving on a jet plane in the morning...and i can't freaking wait. i'm going to visit my baby sister and her adorable babies in portland, oregon. and we are going to see james taylor and carole king on friday. i get bubbles in my stomach thinking about seeing my sister and the babies. and especially when i think about seeing james taylor. it will be the experience of a lifetime and i am so excited to spend it with my baby sister.
so, now you know why i don't have time to blog. i've been gradually getting ready to go on vacation, in between work and some play and being sick. gotta love it. but i promise, as soon as i get back from the vay-cay, i will blog. trust me.

that's all.
