Birthday Wish

Happy Birthday to my ONE and ONLY Follower! :)

Today is my sister's birthday!!

My sister, Lisa was born a few years ago on June 21st. Believe it or not I remember the day that we, Karen, Bill, George and my Dad picked her and my Mother up from the hospital. I remember the type of car we drove, what was said, and where each person sat for the ride home and we've been friends ever since.

She is quite a woman. She takes care of her family, her husband, she home-schools her children, one of which has received scholarships to several colleges. She enjoys kick boxing, so if you don't pay your bill after her husband gets done with the work you've hired him to do, watch it! This girls got a quick right jab. Or is it the left? She loves chocolate and makes killer fudge!! Which I haven't gotten in quite a while, come to think of it.  She's been a wonderful caring and loving daughter to both of our parents and is an especially good friend to our Mother.

Over the twenty plus years that she and Mark have been married, she's been busy raising a few wonderful little big  people. She's a great Mother and as my kids can attest a really neat Aunt. In addition to all her countless amazing qualities she has become quite the budding photographer.  In appreciation of her new hobby, I really wished that I could have gotten her one of the these for her brthday. But it was a little above my budget. 

I really have to update my pictures. These kids are a bit taller now.

                                                                                                                     The one in the middle is mine. The other two have grown a bit since.

SO! You know what I got her instead? I am so excited!! In fact, I don't think I've felt this excited over a gift in quite a long time! I really enjoy giving gifts but sometimes you just don't know what to buy for that special someone. Ya know what I mean?

WELL! This year. I got it!!  AND I am p-r-o-u-d of myself.  This time I hit the mark!

So. Ready??? Ta-da!!

I got her a ...... MARATHON!   Isn't that fantastic?! Well. Not the whole 26.2 miles BUT a half!! Yep. 13.1 miles. A half marathon!  See! She's the second person on participants list. It's O-fficial. 

Isn't that exciting?? I am really excited. In fact, I felt so giddy and giggly when I signed her up that I signed myself up too. Anyone else wanna join us? It'll be so much fun. Think about it.

Well, Lisa, Thanks for being my one and only follower. :) I hope you have a wonderful birthday and hope you really enjoy your gift(s)!

Yipee!! I know you'll love it! Training begins in a month! Love, Me.
