Just a southern gal from Georgia who has a real problem with baking. And by problem I mean, I can't help myself! :D I am married to the love of my life, he puts up with me so well! I am mother to the most adorable, yet tough little boy. And mother to a most beautiful full of attitude, little girl. I can't forget about our 4-legged family members! Our terrier Lucy, Our Great Dane Milo, our mutty mutt Ellie and our cats Abbey and Sammy! I LOVE to bake and I am trying to start up my own cupcakery. I love vintage anything! My blog started out as a blog for my cupcakes, now it has turned into an everyday into the life of "ME" blog. Life is not perfect and wonderful all the time, you will hear me gripe, bahahaha, it isn't all cupcakes. Just a heads up per say. :D Hope your reading experience is enjoyable!

Stroll Down Memory Lane

This is me with my Nana. Miss her.

Hey guys,

I just wanted to share a brief, "Stroll Down Memory Lane", of myself. :) I have a twin sister, fraternal, named Cherie. Let me start by saying, we are NOTHING alike, I'm not kidding. She is single (not married), no kids (except her dog, Dakota), great job, lives in AR, is just beautiful, and gets everything she wants. Me, married, 2 kids (and dogs and cats), owns my own home, stays home with kiddos, not too shabby looking, and my hubby works for everything we have. Now don't get me wrong, I love her with everything I have, even if we do argue A LOT. And I mean A LOT. I am trying to start my own cupcakery, and she is doing her thing with cookies.

  Odd, I know, yet neither one knew these things in advance. CREEPY. When I was pregnant with my son and I was having pains and issues, she would call and her body was mimicking my pain, IN HER- IN AR- NOT PREGO. HA HA. That is twins for ya. We get along for the most part, but shes very NY and I'm very GA. :) Any who, growing up we were together always, thanks for the attachment issues! When I was 16, I got into a very bad car accident and had to be life flighted. I broke my back, had road rash up my legs, and could not stay conscience.

  At this time in our lives, my sister felt she needed to move out to live with my dad. Of course I had to hear this laid up in the hospital. So she moved out the day she left my hospital room and she moved in with my dad. This was the day that things were different, very different. I felt betrayed because I felt I needed her the most then, and because the attention wasn't on her, she decided to turn it to her. Hence her moving out. We were those twins who would nearly kill each other in a fight, not screaming, we would go at it physically.

  And bad, my mom would just step back and yell at us to not kill each other or break anything, it was ridiculous. But at the same point, we always watched out for one another, even if we were arguing. I do miss my sister and her true self, and now she is still sweet, but just different. We talk when she has time or when I am not busy with the kids, and sometimes she visits. She still calls when shes sad or upset, and I still call when I am mad, mostly at her. I have been trying to get her to move back to GA, but so far, no luck. My kids, especially my son, love her to death! 'B' always says, "Mommy can we please go to Mimi's house today in AR?" Wish we could buddy, sorry. To be honest, I am not completely sure that she has even seen my blog, EVER. Not trying to go on and on, so here are some adorable pictures of the two of us. Back when we loved being around one another!
I am the blond, she is the brunette!

Okay, so your post said a lot. I too have a sister, not a twin and we fought a lot growing up. Not so much anymore. We are total opposites, she is single, no kids, and I am married with 2 kids, SAHM etc...total opposite of her. She is a size 0, I am a size 10...and I don't believe she has ever read my blog either! So many similarities!!

Thanks for linking up today with TFAG...I think I was suppose to meet you today! Have a great one and I am now your newest follower!

Twins are so cute! I have a sister who is 21 years younger than me. I was an only child for most of my life. So I really can say we have nothing in common...not yet at least! :)

Following you back from FMBT! :)

Have a great weekend!
