Can I get a What What?!!?

Happy news here in Texas-land.  As many of you have read, our move here was much against my will, and I'm still not a Texan, will never be, and will always dream of moving home.  However, it's about to get way cooler up in this place!  Why, you ask?  Well, see these two faces (not the little one)...

They are about to be here PERMANENTLY!!  That's right folks!  My sister and Brother (in-law, my sister didn't marry our brother, we don't even have one) are moving to the big town of Tyler!  They're going to be bunked up here at the Troxclair hizzy for a few months too!

Hallelujah and praise be to God, as I've been praying for this since we parted ways two years ago (she went somewhere much cooler!).  I'm so grateful that I will have my sister here with me and that we can start up some routines that we've been missing #1, TV show watching together--yes, we have a list of shows we enjoy watching together because our husbands just don't get it.  #2  RUNNING, we're about to hit the half/marathon trails together again (though it will be too soon for the Tyler half this year--catch us next year--maybe?!?!).  #3 Cooking, my sister is the bomb digity in the kitchen, and I'm not too shabby, but at least this way we'll be running together to walk the evil deliciousness off!  #4 Concerts, sis and I LOVE music, not always the same stuff, but our tastes coincide more and more and we love to go to concerts, so we'll be doing this madness together--stat!!  This list could continue to grow, but I'll leave it at that.

I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!!!  Come Sept 30th the reuniting of the sisters begins...


  1. That is awesome! I know you will love having her so close!

  2. I'm so excited for you!!! I know you are so glad!

  3. That is so awesome! A dream come true! I miss my sister so much so I can totally appreciate what this must mean to you! And LUCKY Cala Fay!!! Can you spell R-O-T-T-E-N?? Thats what my children would be if Missy lived anywhere close to us! So happy for you!!!

  4. Love it! Having a sister nearby is the best :).

  5. I know you are thrilled! Keep your fingers crossed and say some big time sister has had two phone interviews here!!! If she makes the cut they are flying her down for an interview in person. I am PRAYING bigtime that they are able to move here! :)
