A Happy Dance!



First of all I'm doing a happy dance today because.......my sister is coming! Today she will be here. She's coming because she is my best friend, she loves my view (see picture to the right!), we're going to see both of our brothers tomorrow, and because she finally has a few days off which makes the 400 mile trip, one way, possible. We have a lot of fun together in a way that only sisters understand. We know the good, the bad, and the ugly about each other and don't mind pointing it out. :) We will eat and talk and laugh and maybe even cry. But it will all be good.
A second happy dance is in order for these wonderful letters I won from Liz at A Giveaway A Day. She let me custom order them so I chose the word Faith in black but sort of primitive looking. Aren't they perfect? When my husband gets home and can climb the ladder for me they will go above the doorway into the sunroom. They're a little crooked in the picture but they will be properly lined up when they're hung.
I'm not sure what my happy dance looks like, and I won't be making a video of it, but it could possibly resemble something like the chicken dance. Now wouldn't you love to see that!

Seems like I was hearing a lot of "clucking" out of the eastern sky when I was out in the yard this afternoon. Must of have been you doing your chicken dances

Enjoy your time with your sister and don't let your brothers get the best of you two girls.

Where would be be without "faith" and the word faith will go great in the sunroom.

I've always wanted a sister, but I'm lucky enough to have produced a whole house of sisters. It's so amazing to watch those friendships grow. You girls have fun!!
