Fabulous Sister-in-Law's

So I have the most amazing relationships with my sister-in-laws. Love them. My brother and Darin's brother couldn't have met and married cooler women. My brother's wife, Natalie lives 1/2 a mile away and we both go through withdrawl if we don't talk every day. She cleaned my house right after I had Adie, she's prayed with me numerous times during tough times and helped me pick up the pieces after I ended a really long relationship before I met Darin. I love her to death.

Liz is Darin's brother's wife. I do believe we were separated at birth. We shop til we drop, recipe swap and email all the time. I'm trying to convert her to a scrapper (she's a card maker.. see, SO CLOSE!) and also trying to make her get a blog. Anywho, our biggest thing in common is our LOVE OF VERA. Yep. We both love it. So over Christmas when Darin's cousin gave us the bestest news in the entire world.. THAT HE WORKS FOR VERA AND WAS EXTENDING A MASSIVE DISCOUNT TO US... we were so excited. I couldn't shop because of the lack of money but it sure was fun to help her shop.

We went over on Saturday and she couldn't help her excitement.. she had my birthday gift. Which totally cracks me up because my birthday is in July. It's not even my 1/2 birthday. She couldn't wait to give it to me and heck, I'm not going to turn down a birthday gift EVER!

So she hands this beautiful beast over. (Not the baby, the bag)
The large duffle. In MOD pink.

And I did a cartwheel. Well, not really but I wanted to.

My sister in law's ROCK!!!
