And the Best Sister Award goes to....
I've been waiting and waiting for my family to come. I would watch my friends Nicole and Tiffany as their families flew in to stay with them again and again. And I was happy for them.
(Ok, that's a lie. I was jealous. Completely jealous. Like, I wanted to hit them over their heads with their trendy clothes and yummy recipes. I didn't though. BECAUSE I'M A GOOD FRIEND).
It's not that my family doesn't miss me (I think). It's just that they are busy, and they don't have a lot of extra money right now, and they prefer reading about my life to actually being in my life.
But then Amber called me one day and said "Dave and I want to come visit! How does next week sound?"
"Um, it sounds AWESOME."
And it was.
We saw the sights, ate yummy food, and made them sleep on the Foam (because we are terrible hosts).
(We took lots of pictures, but they are all on her camera, and she hasn't shared them yet. So for now, you'll have to use your imagination.)
She made me promise not to mention anything about her trip to you guys until after she got home. Something about security, and privacy, and not wanting creepy stalkers to know their house was empty and practically begging to get robbed (I'm paraphrasing).
We made desserts, and went on long walks, and laughed until we cried.
I really missed her.
Also, when I made the mistake of telling her about my exercise goal for the week, she made me stick to it. Because she is a jerk.
But I forgave her because the 30 Day Shred is so much more fun when you aren't the only one cussing out Jillian Michaels.
She and Dave stayed for 6 days, but I swear it felt more like 2. Time just flew.
And when I dropped them off at the airport yesterday (at 5:30am), I wasn't worried anymore. I know they will come back to visit. Because we are THAT MUCH FUN.
(And also? I stole a bunch of stuff out of her suitcase. That's right Amber- if you want it back, you can come and get it)
