Five Birthday Favorites About BabySpice

Morning ladies, happy FRIDAY!!! I'm soooooooooo ready for the weekend, are you? For some reason this week has been exhausting and I'm looking forward to some fun time and some down time, so hurry up Saturday!

Before I begin my faves, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone that suggested hair styles on Wednesday. Y'all rock my world and I went with the consensus of dark brown with some discreet auburn highlights. I.LOVE.IT! Definitely different than the blonde, but in a fun way. What do y'all think?

Don't mind the sassy face...I was texting my BOFF ;)
Moving on...

Today is my lovely baby sister's birthday so I thought "Why not center today's five favorites around her"?  I know, I know, I'm such a kind big sissy! Please continue on and read my five favorite things about beautiful lil sis, Babyspice.

1] Her voices: Chica can legit do any accent you ask. It might take her a few tries, but she'll eventually get it. Scottish? Easy! Australian? Good day mate [hi kristen]! Russian? Bring me the vodka! Sid the Sloth from Ice Age? You're on. During our drive to Virginia Beach, she kept us all entertained by reading the fifth Harry Potter novel, out loud in different accents. Hagrid ended up as a pirate, which was weird, but highly hilarious too. Point being, you need an accent, ask Babyspice.


2] Her humor: Girlfriend is funny. Sometimes, I don't always understand the joke, but she still makes me laugh with her laugh. She reminds me of Lucille Ball with her physical comedic genius and the ability to imitate others is uncanny [see #1]. The three of us laugh entirely too much and she is often at the center of the laughter. I'm so lucky that my sister gives me laugh lines instead of frowny face lines.

3] Her willingness to always listen to me....mostly ;): As most babies of the family know, you often get overlooked or used as the family guinea pig and Babyspice always did it with a smile on her face. Cold day at the pool...Babyspice you have to go in first. Time to jump off the roof of the house boat...Babyspice you're up first. Need a glass of water while watching TV...Babyspice go get me a glass of water....please. Once she out grew me in size and reached college, her willingness to take my word as law dissipated, but sometimes, with a lil big of cajoling I can still get that glass of water.


4] Her Brain: Home-girl is pretty much a genius in my book [unless i'm losing the argument]. She's always been a fast learner and I'm constantly amazed and how well she can retain information after hearing/reading it only once. She wrecked her SATs, kicked butt in college and  rocked it out in law school all while keeping her beautiful attitude and hair. Got a question about China or the Russian political scene circa 1962, she's your girl!

5] Her heart: As far as hearts go, she's got one of the biggest hearts on earth. Babyspice is such a kind and caring soul and she just wants to make the world a better place. She strives to better herself, to help better the world and looks out for the lost, the least and the less fortunate whenever she can. While she might not have the answer to your problem, she's willing to listen, to comfort and to just be there when needed. I pray that the world doesn't make her cynical as we need those golden hearts to make the world go round.

Dearest Babyspice,

Happy birthday, sweet lady! I hope that you have a wonderful day! I'm so excited to celebrate this weekend with you and look forward to another fabulous year. You are such a joy and I'm so thankful you are my sister. Even though you make me listen to weird music. Thanks for teaching me about myself and about the world. I know you're going to light it on fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiire! Happy birthday, pants!

xoxo, Pinky
