Besides my skinnie twinnie Shan, I haven't talked much about my family. I am the 2nd oldest of 5- Meg, me, Shan, Col, and Ry. Meg is the typical older sister- perfect in every way. She is hard-working, beautiful, skinny (even after having 2 kids) and one thing that I really aspire to- organized! Then there are the twins- Moe and Shan. We are quite obviously the cool sisters. We (and especially Shan) are the funny ones that everyone wants to be around at family get-togethers and other social events. (I am totally embellishing here). Col is next(I am going to skip over her real quick). Then there is the lone brother, Ry. He is a typical high schooler, except that he has 4 older sisters (not a fate many would envy). So he isn't really all that typical. He loves to play with his 4 nieces and nephews and he is just a great guy.
Ok so back to Col- she is probably the sweetest person I have ever met. There is just not a bad bone in her body. Kids LOVE her, they just sort of are drawn to her. I would say she is kind of like the apple of our family's eye. She is a little shorter than the rest of us and so my dad quite appropriately nicknamed her "Mouse." Well, our little Col, our mouse, is all grown up and this past weekend she got engaged!!! Another one bites the dust! But seriously, we couldn't be happier for her.
So why am I talking about this on my weightloss blog? Well, for one it is really exciting I can't not talk about it, but also, it is a great motivation for me to keep losing weight so I can look good at her wedding! Woohoo!
