Sisterly love

“You’re so much more than the little things you pick on yourself about.”

When my sister told me this on Saturday, it reminded me how powerful it can be to hear words of encouragement from someone who totally gets you — someone who eats your cookies even when they’re burnt, fixes your hair when you sprain your wrist and loves all of who you are, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Starting today, I think we should all listen to the people in our lives when they tell us we’re fabulous, because most likely, we are.

I think I have that same exact towel!

And we are too damn hard on ourselves.

Don't forget those three words that describe yourself! (I forgot mine already).

And your sis said it perfectly. Sing it sista!

I cant believe you have disgraced my blog with the name of THAT TEAM from Texas. :)

When people ask me who may favorite team is, I usually say, "The Green Bay Packers and whoever's playing the Cowboys!"

Happy Monday Night Football!
