One Year Older and Wiser Too!

Today is my lovely sister's birthday. Adrienne is 28 years old. That is so strange because I still think of us as crazy 19 and 21 year-old roommates at USU. Man, those were the days. All my guy friends wanted her and that really does something to an older sister's self-esteem -- and it doesn't really do anything good to the self-esteem, I can tell you that much.

Here are just some of the reasons I love Adrienne (these are just a few off the top of my head as there are far too many to list in one blog post):

1-She's funny. Seriously, one of the funniest people I know.

2-She speaks her mind.

3-She's a cute mom. This becomes very apparent once you spend even one minute with her little Kate because she's just as spunky as her mom.

4-Every trip we go on together, we will undoubtedly, unquestionably fight with each other. We usually have one major humdinger of a "discussion" on every trip. What I love about her is that she ALWAYS forgives me for the dumb things I say. (Sometimes I say dumb things. But that will probably come as no surprise to anyone who has ever taken the teeniest, tiniest glimpse at my blog.)

5-She's beautiful (on the inside and out. I can't tell which side wins out because they're both so darn attractive!).

6-She makes me happy. It's a selfish reason but it's true. It's hard to get time with her, now that we live so far away, and she has so many darn friends that it's difficult to even get any phone time with her but when I do, it somehow makes my days better.

I love you Aids! (No, she's not suffering from the disease; that's just her oh-so-attractive nickname from high school.)

Cel, what a nice sister you are. Well, when you're not calling Adrienne the "B" word or anything. I'm expecting a post equally nice on my 21st Birfday. Boo-yeah!

Kate, that depends entirely on your behavior.

How nice are you. All I could do was post a picture and give her a big shout out. She is all the above and more. We got a good laugh (with some tears) tonight at dinner. Ode' to the Birthday Dong!!!

That's a great picture of Adrienne and young Kate. Great post. Cheers to what you said.

I love Adrienne, too. And I've played Steal the Bacon both with and against her. She's also excellent at that game. I wonder why you didn't mention it?

Adrienne said...

Cels....well that might just be the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me! It brought a little tear to my eye!

but let's be real--you were pretty generous with some of those remarks--a cute mom? Let's not tell everyone about the time i was told to go on Prozac....or your dumb remarks? how bout the time that I screamed at you for not wanting wedding china....

But all jokes aside, thanks so much for all your sentiments. You are a great big sister, and it is so nice to feel loved!

I don't have to wear the Mean Sister Title all the time, then? Phew!

I guess we're even.
