Best Friends Forever (in a stalker-ish kinda way)

My brother is awesome.  I love him to pieces, bits and pieces actually.  Growing up, I'd say we were close...if by close you mean me mothering him to death.  My mom used to say that I was harder on him than she was..."You're not his mother!" she'd always say.  Under my breath I'd mutter, "Ya, well...I should have been."  I mean the kid got away with murder (and by *murder* I mean nothing of the sort...)  By some crazy twist of fate, my child is the spitting image of my's that for ironic!!  And our relationship has evolved into a wonderful friendship.  I'd do just about anything for my lil' bro.

Maybe just as awesome or a littler awesome-r is my brother's girlfriend.  I have a girl-crush on her.  It's like a Wo-mance (Bromance, Womance???  I'm not sure...)  There is only one other woman I have a crush on and that is Angelina Jolie.  I mean, how absolutely cool would it be to have Angelina Jolie as your best friend?  Can you just imagine?  Playdates would be so much fun (insert squeal here).  She is the perfect combination of sexy and humanitarian (I bet you didn't know there was a perfect combination of those two qualities, did you?  Well, there is.)  And her hubby is pretty cute, too.  Maybe he could hook me up with, oh I don't know....I've never really thought about it before...George Clooney....or know (pssst....George Clooney is dreamy!) 

Anyways, back to my brother's girl.  She's an A.  She's gorgeous, she's tall, she's thin...and she's really, really nice.  She's the type of person who, if she ever found a baby bird that had fallen from its nest, would take it home and nurse it back to health and then set it free over the ocean while the sun was setting or something like that.  It would be beautiful.  Which is totally ironic, because I know I would do the same thing.  We're just so similar that way. 

Now, I know you're all wondering why I'm blogging about my bro's gal.  Especially when she reads my blog (can you say *awkward*)  Well, because they're coming to stay with us for the month of July (and maybe longer, fingers crossed!!) 

I'm picturing slumber parties and pillow fights and doing each other's hair, staying up til the sun comes up talking about boys (ummmm, excluding my brother, of course...that would just be...well, gross to say the least...)  and books and what we want to do when we grow up.  We can buy those charm bracelets where she wears the half that says "BE FRI" and mine says "ST ENDS" and we can have silly little inside jokes that only we get, and we can giggle.

I'm telling ya, I'm super stoked.  I've already told my brother that if he doesn't step up and marry this woman, I just might.  In a purely platonic, non-sexual way of course (haha, my mother is totally cringing right now...)  Not that I'm dissing same sex marriages, I'm not here to judge.  I'm just here to love.  

Wow...Saturday is gonna be really awkward.  

p.s.  Okay, so some of this was the whole pillow fight and charm bracelet thing...I kind of went off in a tangent.  But I'm really excited that they've decided to come spend the month with us.  And I should be clear, there is no expectation nor requirement for said gf to spend any time doing my hair or saving dying bird-lettes or anything that borders on weird.  Hopefully, our home will just be a safe haven for the two of them while they figure out where they want to be and what they want to do.

  3. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think
    we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be
    interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  4. A few things i have continually told men and women is that when evaluating a good internet electronics
    retail store, there are a few components that you have to remember to consider.
    First and foremost, you should really make sure to choose a reputable
    along with reliable retail store that has gotten great reviews and scores from other consumers and
    marketplace people. This will ensure you are dealing with a well-known store providing you with good service
    and help to their patrons. Thank you for
    sharing your thinking on this blog site.

  5. Thanks for your content. One other thing is when you are marketing
    your property on your own, one of the difficulties you need to be alert to upfront is when to deal with household
    inspection accounts. As a FSBO retailer, the key about successfully switching your
    property in addition to saving money on real estate
    agent revenue is expertise. The more you already know, the easier your
    home sales effort are going to be. One area
    where this is particularly crucial is reports.

  6. I do believe that a foreclosed can have a
    major effect on the borrower's life. Real estate foreclosures can have a Seven to a decade negative affect on a client's
    credit report. A new borrower who may have applied for home financing or almost any loans for
    that matter, knows that your worse credit rating e, the more complicated it
    is for any decent personal loan. In addition, it could
    possibly affect a new borrower's capacity to find a reasonable place to let or rent, if that gets the alternative houses solution. Good blog post.

  7. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in
    the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm
    looking for something completely unique. P.
    S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
