Can you believe it!?

I didnt do one thing to celebrate St. Patricks Day!? Nope. Not one. I'm usually all for fun holidays! I celebrate Talk like a Pirate Day, Valentines and Easter. I just didn't have it in me this year. I'm sick. I know, lame excuse but I dont mind. The cold that I got has wiped me out! So next year, I'm going to make little green feet everywhere, scatter fun gold coins, and leave green food colored water in the toilet.. Sorry Martha, I just didn't have it in me.

my favorite things

Finding old pictures on the camera! Look at little Olivia.

Did I mention, I miss my sister?

She is the best.
The girl in the center. My best friend. The one on the right isn't so bad either ;)
Snow so thick it looks like a snow globe outside
(as long as it disapears by the weekend)

Olivia hair is finally long enough for real piggie tails, not just antennas!

"romantic mama"

Today, I miss my sister. My beautiful sister Melissa. I never called her Melissa, unless I was super mad at her. I called her Melly. Now, it's just Mel or sissy.
Growing up, she and I never got along! We shared a room. It was inevitable. I was always too messy, she was too bossy. Sometimes though, when the moon was full, we played dolls and house together. We played cops and robbers outside too. She was the BEST hider. I still dont know where she hid! Friday nights were always my favorite! She and I would get the emergency candles from under the sink and have a special sister dinner. We called it "Romantic Mama" It usually consisted of cinnamon toast, and orange juice in a champange glass. We would make a toast and I would always says "you are the best sister I ever had" and she would come back with "Ash, i'm your only sister..."

When my brother moved out, she and I finally got our own rooms. We slowly started to realize that we had more in common than we thought. We were both doing that akward, "i'm trying to find the man of my dreams in highschool" and trying to NOT fit in. (we were unique ;) ) We both LOVE really bad movies like Cry Baby, Grease and Dirty Dancing. (ps. they aren't bad to our standards, but everyone else..) We have the same exact laugh, I love her laugh. I love how our laughs echo through a room.

I miss my sister.
