My sis, Laura, chatted me today and complained that I hadn't posted in a while. I must admit - I dismissed her pretty quickly because I was at work, and feeling the Monday blues on a Tuesday because we had the holiday off yesterday, and I didn't want to be reminded that I hadn't posted. I have been feeling the pressure to write something since Friday, which for us marked 11 weeks waiting but nothing was coming to me. So since it was my sister who bugged me to post, I guess I'll have to blog about, who else, but my sister!

My sister is the best sister I have, and yes, she is my only sister, but I feel sure that I would say that even if that weren't true. She's pretty cool. She taught 3rd grade at a school in the St. Louis area for the last few years and this year she switched to become the technology teacher at this same school. She was nervous about this transition but so far, I think she is loving it.

Laura is a sweet girl with a huge heart who loves to laugh and listen to country music, and work out at Curves. She also has a passion for those precious moments dolls, which I never understood, but I always admired her for having a hobby. I never did as a kid, really. She loves movies and going out for dinner with my parents and most especially, she loves shopping with my mom. They are more like best friends than mother and daughter. And they live in the town I grew up in, about 5 minutes away from one another.

I do have a brother too, and in all fairness, I'll blog about him another time. But this is my sis. Also, she'll kill me for this, but I might add that she is single. So if any of you blogger pals know any single men looking for a fun, energetic, adorable Illinois girl, let me know! Laura rocks!!
