Happy Birthday Dear Iva...

Today is Iva Elaine's birthday. While you probably don't know her, I have been extremely blessed to have met her and roomed with her. Even though we live in different states and don't email or talk on the phone...I know that she a fabulous friend. Happy birthday!

Here is a story about Elaine. In college, she got a new car. A small silver car. She is going to have to post and remind me of its make and model. New (even new to you) cars are really special so I make a big deal about it when someone gets one. By the time she got home this this car, it was super late at night and I was in my pjs. But I still ran out there to check out the car, sit in it and admire it.


Another story about my friend Elaine...

Once I tried dying her hair for her...to a much lighter blonde color. Well, I missed the hairline...just a little bit. But of course, even a little bit looks AWEFUL. So she had to run out to the store late at night to get a new box of dye to fix it. (Sorry.)

One summer we had a 3rd roommate who NEVER did the dishes. Somehow we just stopped doing them for her. And soon enough, there was no clean dishes to eat from. So Elaine and I went out to eat 2 nights in a row. K* got the idea and did the dishes! haha.

Fun times which I'll probably jot down more of these silly college memories before they are lost.



Finally got a challenge done...Yeah! Paper from my big sis tracylynn00...Tracy only had me for 1 month...I had 2 other big sisters flake on me. But she made the last package EXTRA SPECIAL. This striped paper is from her.
