opinions needed

alright guys. i need to find a cocktail dress for joe’s cousin’s bar mitzvah. check out the links and tell me which you guys like.

dress one

dress two

dress three

really, i WAS born in the 80s

joe always tells me there’s no way i can be a child of the 80s. apparantly this quiz i saw on jen’s site agrees. i scored 19. yes. you read that right. 19. but, there were a lot on there that i knew and just couldn’t think of the right words. i don’t think i’ve ever said, “crap! i knew that!” as much as i did when i read the answers. that counts for something, doesn’t it?

puzzle stress

joe has gotten me addicted to sudoku puzzles. we did one together sunday, and it was fun. now i’m trying one on my own and i’m stressed out to no end. i have only been able to fill in 4 little squares. sigh. i suck at these things. and yet i’m still trying. i’m insane.

everyone must do this!

i got this from jen’s.
1. who are you?
2. are we friends?
3. when and how did we meet?
4. what brings you here?
5. why do you keep coming back?
6. give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
7. describe me in one word.
8. what was your first impression?
9. do you still think that way about me now?
10. what reminds you of me?
11. if you could give me anything what would it be?
12. how well do you know me?
13. when’s the last time you saw me?
14. ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t? Here’s your chance!
15. are you going to put this on your blog and see what I say about you?

happy birthday to my brothers

today my brothers turned 20.

i still can’t believe it. i remember how excited i was when they were born in 1985. i wanted to hold them. i wanted to read to them. i wanted to show them off to all my friends. i had twin baby brothers. i was so proud to be a big sister.

as we got a little bit older we began to fight, as siblings do. but with two against one, i always lost. i still remember the hitting and the hair pulling and the name calling.

and it makes me laugh, because everything has changed. my brothers are adults now. they’re in college. they’re choosing careers. they give me advice, and i advise them. we talk about their girlfriends and my boyfriend (i really like the girls they’re dating, and they really like joe). they’re my friends now. looking at them tonight at their birthday dinner i thought about how proud i still am of them. they’re still my baby brothers, but now they’re men. good men. i’m so proud to be their sister.

happy birthday randy and ryan. i love you guys.
