On Colleen and Willow (Happy Birthday)

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

I am coming in hot today with some important information that needs to be shared about Colleen.  Since today is her 29th birthday, I thought it would be just about the right time to do it.  I am sure you all have seen the movie Willow, the epic journey of a dwarf and Val Kilmer trying to save a baby princess that was released in the late 80s.  Facts are it is probably the premier movie of the late 80s (apart from the Little Mermaid).  If you haven’t seen it, good grief.   Please don’t tell me and ruin my day.  Just go home tonight and rent it on Amazon or another way all the cool kids watch movies these days.  Anyways, the movie centers around a prophecy that this baby (Elora Danan) born with a special birthmark will bring about the downfall of the evil queen Bavmorda.  Bavmorda was seriously bad news and basically all you need to know is that baby Elora Danan was a huge deal.  Well the thing about Colleen is that she looked so much like baby Elora Danan at the time the movie came out that people would always stop and tell us and fawn over her.   I was so jealous of this major role that Colleen played in history.  They even shared some of the same personality characteristics including an adorable laugh as well as being quite discerning about which people could be up in their faces.  Neither Colleen nor Elora suffered fools gladly.  With such an auspicious beginning, it is really no wonder that Colleen has come to be the wonderful and significant person she is today.  Happy birthday Colleen!  I love you very much and I feel that your birth must have fulfilled a prophecy that will bring down all of the bad people of the world!  Hooray!

The Month of Cake

Thursday, April 23, 2015

Today is Megan’s birthday so we all need to wish her the happiest and most delicious birthday!  I’ll wait will you all call her to sing her your best birthday song.  Done?  Good.  So we call April the month of cake because it starts with Easter and Easter baskets brought by our Easter bunnies (yes we still have Easter bunnies and I will not tolerate any judgement) which admittedly is not really cake but lots of sweet goodness, then we have Meg’s birthday cake (I will be trying my hand at remaking a strawberry cake that I thoroughly screwed up a couple of years ago), then we have our lovely mother’s birthday.  Lots of celebrating and lots of cake.  Meg deserves it because she’s one of the sweetest and most loyal people you will ever meet.  Also, she makes one heck of a big sister.  So Meg, I hope you have the best day, filled with cake and queso and cats!  Love you!

Happy Birthday Colleen!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Happy birthday Colleen!  Colleen is in New York for her birthday today.  The trip was a gift for Corey’s birthday but Colleen worked it out so they would be there on her birthday too.  That is one smart chick.  Anywho, since today is her birthday and she is awesome, I thought it might be fun to play that game where you have to list things people may not know about you.  Except I am going to share the things about Colleen and not myself.  Cause it’s her birthday!!  Don’t worry.  I promise I won’t share anything too embarrassing.

Thing 1.  Colleen has a really good singing voice.  When she was younger, she used to gather my friends and I around when they were over and make us listen to her sing Mariah Carey songs.  Apparently all that practice paid off cause she can slay a kareoke song.  (How the heck do you spell that?  Spellcheck doesn’t like this way but I am leaving it cause this is quite obviously how it should be spelled.)

2.  Colleen is one of the most loyal people I have ever met.  Anytime I ever need a shoulder to cry on or someone to call late at night when I am upset about something, she is ALWAYS there.  Patiently offering thoughtful advice and saying all the right things and being appropriately outraged with me until I get through it.  This is invaluable, in my opinion.  Not only that, but she offers to show up with Mexican food if things ever get really bad.  Plus if she ever overhears someone saying anything bad about one of her people, they are lucky if they get to keep their head.

Which brings us to…

3.  Colleen is a tough tough little cookie.  Really…sometimes she can be scary and fierce.  But also in the most perfect way, she is very soft and gentle.

4.  If you live near Greensboro or down in some place in South Carolina, there is a chance that she is working (frequently by herself) or has worked to make sure there is no bacteria (poop?) in your drinking water.  That, my friends, may be the most important thing of all.

5.  She is a super duper environmentalist.  Don’t throw away any cans around this girl or things will get real ugly real fast.  See number 3.

6.  If any of you have seen the pictures of us when we were little, Colleen had a curly red fro.  You may already know this but it is worth repeating because it was adorable.  People would always stop us to try to talk to her and she would have none of it.  She was so over being cute.  Actually one time my parents got out of a speeding ticket cause the cop thought she was so precious.  Now she has this awesome curly red hair that also straightens like a dream with no frizz.  My hair is straight and flat and I have always been jealous.

7.  Just in case you don’t know or remember this, Colleen married her high school sweetheart.  Hi Corey.

8.  She can research an answer to something or find the best product to purchase like nobody’s business.  This lady owns google.

9.  She is exceptionally dependable.  If she says she will be there, you can bet she will be and if she says she will do something, you can always count on it to be done.

10.  She is the best sister ever.  Really, I count my lucky stars every day to have been born into the same family as her.
