welcome to 28, friend!

Even though my dear, precious, wonderful friend Claire has announced the facebook world that she thinks I look like Judge Sonia Santomayer, it's still her birthday, and being the nice person that I am, I'll give her the post she deserves. (Although I'm still not over the whole judge thing).
I've become quite a fan of the "ABC" birthday list, so here's CLAIRE'S very own list:
Alpine, TX. A fantastic trip taken by the 2 of us to visit our dear, dear friend.
Birmingham. Where she calls "home" at the moment (and a great place for me to visit!)
Circus peanuts. (Actually "C" could stand for crap candy! If it's nasty and sugary, she LOVES it!)
Dances to "Colors of the Wind" regularly.
Emerald monster. May it RIP.
Friend. And a very good one at that. I'm thankful everyday for my friendship with Claire!
Griffin. Patty Griffin that is.
Hot tea. She LOOOOVES it.
Involved. In college, she was the girl that was involved in E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. It sorta stressed me out. Then again, Claire's life in general stresses me out.
James Taylor lover
Knows more people than anybody I know. This girl is so easy to be friends with. She's been a bridesmaid in approximately 348 weddings.
Literature teacher. And a dang good one too.
Mississippi girl (even if she never lives in this glorious state again!)
Obsessions. A few include: Clifford, Dwight K. Schrute, Ebay, and Prefontaine
Red wine
Smashing pumpkins (literally)
Teacher friend
Unleash the monster
X-cellent writer
Yaya. While she's not the one who gave me the name, she'll never again refer to me as anything else.
Zyrtec. A dear friend of hers. Unfortunately.

Welcome to being "close to 30" just like me!

Love you much!
