Happy Birthday, Megan! (A Post by Skye)

December 11, 2012

Hi! Skye here.

Skye mustache Or this stranger with a mustache.

It has long been my dream to hijack Megan’s blog for a day, but I suffer from a very severe case of laziness/procrastination.

(It’s just one of the many reasons we’re friends.)

Did you know that Sunday (December 9) was Megan’s 27th birthday?

(You might have known that on Sunday if I’d finished this post on time, but let’s not think about that.)

Megan's 26th birthday Last year’s traditional birthday Shirley Temples (This year I went rogue and had sangria.)

In honor of this occasion, I’m sharing some of my very favorite things about Megan!

1. She shares her family with me.

The REAL Seamstress Her mom actually calls us “my girls”. Isn’t that sweet?

2. She’s helped me move too many times to count, painted my room with me, and even finished painting without me. I repeat, Megan painted my trim alone, without complaint. More than once.

(Clearly I owe her, and therefore I will not complain about the many coats of paint I will help slather on her many, many walls.)

3. She came to doctor’s appointments and treatments with me when I had cancer.

(By the way, you readers were amazing in your comments on those posts. Thank you so, so much for your kind words. I still go back and read them.)

4. She documents my life for me, both on this blog and in her amazing Project Life album.

Because I’m even lazier and more behind at my own documentation.


5. There are so many things Megan has brought to my life that now I can’t imagine living without.

Like blogs.

And scrapbooking.


And petsitting Pearl and Monroe.

And silly photo shoots.

And one-day NYC road trips.

Project Life Week Nine

And Tuesday night variety shows.


And Black Friday shopping.


And New Year’s parties.


And being friends with Sharon.

Christmas 2011 Sharon’s the normal one. Obviously.

And being friends with Lindsey, Anna, Jeff, and Meredith. (Yep, I stole all those friends, too.)

holiday photo shoot 2011 Once again, we are the ones making weird faces. (And yes, I selected a photo with Allison but not Meredith. Just to confuse you.)

6. Finally, Megan and I share many strange habits and phobias, such as checking under the bed for murderers, avoiding death on bridges, and giving each other our passwords in case we die.

(Therefore allowing me to write this post.)

(Although I still had some issues logging in, explaining why this post was not up on Megan’s actual birthday and why I had to send her an embarrassing email ruining the surprise. Sigh.)

Skye's important passwords These are my important passwords. I gave them to Megan the night before my cancer surgery. For some reason, her mom seemed to think this was morbid when it was clearly HILARIOUS.

I’m not sure whether this has ever been shared, but during the fall of our senior year of high school, we decided to take out a senior ad together in the yearbook. Except we hadn’t been friends long enough to rack up a list of inside jokes, so we just made them up.

Megan & Skye senior ad Please don’t ask. We don’t understand it, either.

I can’t believe we’ve known each other for almost ten years! Megan, I hope you had a very happy birthday. I love you!

I also love that she has a tag called “Skye Rocks My Socks”
