Blowing Candles. Making Wishes

Sometimes posts are easy to write.

and sometimes they're not so easy. 

Today is one of those not so easy days because.....

How do you write about your best friend and truly capture all her amazingness? 

Tomorrow is Shannon's birthday! 
And I've been thinking about this post for days now but never came up with the perfect way 
No perfect way to describe how gorgeous she is or funny. 
Or how she's among the most giving people I know.
How she defends what is right.....always. 
How she has a heart for autistic children or
how I'm 9,000 shades jealous she can eat like a sumo wrestler and still remain a tiny tot (unfair gene distribution mom!!!)



or how truly thankful I am for her!
I hope all your birthday dreams come true 
Happy Birthday Mooks! 

AND 

we are gonna have an AMAZEBALLS time celebrating in ATL this weekend!!!

In other news....Shannon has become a pageant mom and I've become a pageant aunt....SOOO would you "like" my little muffin's pic on the Effingham Animal Hospital Page? 
O'malley says please, thank you, and Happy Friday

XO, A

aw, like i've told you before, you guys are on my list of favorite sisters in the world. hope this weekend is amazing for both of you. happy birthday, shannon!

and since it's shannon's bday, i feel the need to share my shannon memories:
- Shannon freaking Ashley out with "the rapture"
- Ashley freaking Shannon out with the ET fingers (or was that vice versa?)

either way, good times - and you guys both continue to make me laugh and encourage me that there are still real people in this world. :)
