bestie's birthday...

***EDIT*** I can't believe I forgot to include the pictures of us over the years. I guess I'm still in shock that I went through with my wonderfully creative plan. :) Scroll down to see Emily and I over the past 3 or 4 years, pigtails and all!
Summer '08:
Is it just me, or do I look like a little baby in the picture below?
Fall Party '09:

I would sing happy birthday to you, Emily, but typing out the words isn't the same as singing them with audio. So, without further ado, I present the duo known as SA and Clark! Thank you, thank you! Hold your applause until the very end. Or just until the video starts, because it's not very applause worthy...

(make sure you turn off my playlist before clicking the play button on the video. i'd hate for superchic to come blarign out while you're trying to listen to my mad singing skills.)
I'm still in shock that I would actually do something like this. With Clark in his pajamas, me with my wet hair, and displaying for all to see our blue carpeted house. Just goes to show you I will do anything for my friends. Okay, not anything, but pretty darn close.
Emily and I have been friends for a very long time, but we can't remember when we first met! Horrible, I know. Most of our friendships were developed through our local homeschooling group when we were teeny- tiny. We had our share of rough patches, mostly on my part, but it wasn't anything that a visit or tow with each together couldn't fix!
Happy sweet, sweet sixteen birthday, little miss Emmylou! I heart you...
