(with Shannon and Jordy at Crystal's wedding)
Today is my older sister's birthday.
The sister I have admired and looked up to my whole life.
Why, you might ask?
Several (but not nearly all) reasons:
1. She is gorgeous
(I always wished I looked like her- still do)
2. She is sooooo talented
(dancing, singing, skiing, belching, you name it)
3. She is FUNNY
(makes me laugh so hard!)
4. She is nice
(was always a good older sister to me- that is, unless I took her clothes)
5. Had awesome clothes
(which I would steal on a frequent basis which would make her very mad. *note #4)
6. Would make up dances with me
(my favorite: Pocahontas rollerblading routine in my ice skating skirts)
7. Started a band with me
(DNS, circa 2003ish, but we were awesome)
8. Always a good example
(May or may not have been why I was a loser in high school- but well worth it!)
9. Introduced me to the world of music
(starting with Indigo Girls, Alanis Morrisette, No Doubt...)
10. She is one amazing mommy
(and I would be happy to be even a little bit as amazing as she is with my own)
Happy Birthday Sista! I love you!
