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.)
