Aren't best friends the best?
It is Alyson Marie Brewis' 21st Birthday!
{aw graduation...sigh}

And I wish I was there to celebrate it with her.
I love Aly (Mufasa) with all of my heart. We have been best friends since second grade. There have been countless arguments, petty name calling, and brutal tears throughout the years. But despite all of the trials and silly fights we've encountered, this girl is still my BFF.

{why do we look so young?}
So my are the many things I love about you:

{T Bell. Top Five best nights of high school}
You are CRAZY. Like a good crazy, of course. I sort of have myself to blame for this. You used to be a shy, focused girl. I CREATED A MONSTER. Hahahaha. kidding. Kinda.
You are so fun. And you know how to have it.
You are the life of the party. People are attracted to your outgoing personality and cough big boobs cough. You always want to be social and have fun. You plan the social events because you crave that connection!

You thought this dress was beautiful by the way.
Just btw.
But anywho...
Your awesome fashion sense. Whether it be your high class coach bags or designer jeans, you always know how to dress. And always look so gorgeous.
Your laugh is contagious. most of my memories with you are including laughter. I can pick it out of a crowd.

You get me. So cliche, right? But you do.
Those hours we have spent in your car listening to country and just talking. You were always there to listen to me.

Your loyalty. When I come home, you make sure you see me right away. And I love it.
You are always willing to give me advice and slap me across the face when I am doing something stupid.
You are so honest and blunt. You don't take crap from anyone. And you let them know it.

Even though we are so different in many ways; we think similarly. You understand what I'm trying to say, regardless if I actually say anything.
You are kind. When someone doesn't piss you off.

Your interests and talents. We have so many of the same interests, and I love that we were usually both up for the same things growing up. You have so many talents that you aren't even aware of: your natural intelligence, your gift of loyalty, your natural hardworking demeanor.

Psh. Who couldn't love you? Just look at that cute face!
(We look the same. )

I love you so so so so so so so much, Alyson. You are my fourth sister. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for the lessons. Thank you for the
love. Thank you for the constant laughter and outrageousness.
your Sisi.

{A miraculously done-up, dyed hair version of me?}

And yet again, EVERYBODY ELSE has found my famous twin.
I can't tell you how many people have told me that I act and look like
Kimberly on The Bachelor.
I, personally, don't think she looks that much like me.
(I mean yes, definitely resembles, but not twin)
but as I watched the show
(ONLY to see my "twin", I normally hate it)
I was a little freaked out at our mannerisms and how similar they were.

See for yourself here
Kinda Creepy.
