Happy Day!

I haven't really had a lot of time to blog lately, but today's a special day so I wanted to make an exception.

Because today is this girl's birthday:

Thankfully neither one of us looks like that anymore.  Also, very thankfully, that's the only middle school picture I have that's survived.

Since the moment I met her, Meredith's been my best friend.  

All through middle and high school, we had more sleep overs than I can even possibly count.  We played soccer together, baked chocolate chip cookies together, went shopping together, and kept our favorite Mexican restaurant El Loro's in business together.  

We even went to prom together:

We were able to stay friends even though we went to rival colleges together:

Our friendship has always been really special to me.  Meredith's loved me even though I don't think she really understands my love of these men:

Or my love of this one:

Even though we can both agree on the awesomeness of this one:

and no, I don't mean Daniel Radcliffe

My family taught Meredith the proper way to decorate a cake:

And hers taught me that maybe (just maybe) hiking isn't a form of physical punishment:

I don't think Meredith has any idea how much I love her.  She's my best friend and my sister.  I hope she has the wonderful day that she deserves.  Even though I can't celebrate with her today, I can't wait to celebrate with her later this week!

Love you always.

Andrea, this is so sweet!!! Thank you so so so so much! You always know what to do to make me feel loved and appreciated!!

BTW, I have totally warmed up to the Beetles - I'm growing up!!! I think Kermit's really cute and I will watch the Muppet Christmas Carol with you and Garrett if you'd like (you guys both love it so much)! Also, I have to get out my decorations for my cake that my Mom made! I almost forgot!!

I am so incredibly excited to see you later this week. I know you probably have lots of people to see and lots to do with school and stuff but I have cleared the schedule for you girl.

BTW if you're doing to 5K you'll have to run it with Kathryn because Garrett and I are lame and haven't trained at all. Maybe we'll intersperse our walking with jogging though. :o) We figure it will just be a really good time walking for the survivors and those that still need a cure.

Love you girl!
