Tessa and Ally













My little sister Tessa and her friend Ally came to visit for a week. Even though they only left five days ago, I already miss these girls so much. Tessa is like me; her friends are friends forever. She and Ally have been friends since middle school and even though they went to different high schools, they maintained their friendship. I think they'll be friends forever, especially since most of Tessa's friends have been her friends since she was a toddler or in kindergarten. We consider them family.

I see a lot of Kimberly in Ally. So does Kim - she calls Ally her "mini." I'd love to flatter myself and say that Tessa is a lot like me, but the truth is that she's way freaking cooler. These girls are seriously the coolest teenagers I know.

Random, but I had a dream that they were both smoking cigarettes (!!!) and I was really upset and yelling at them. In the dream, they said, "It's not a big deal. We're just being trendy." I woke up (teary-eyed) and told them about it, making them promise to never smoke or do drugs. The rest of the trip, they kept joking to each other, "Let's go be trendy!" which was always met with an evil-eye from me, and then buckets of laughs. Do teenagers even use the word trendy? No?

  4. aww..they're so grown up and pretty! My little brother turned 18and it's freaking me out. Isn't it weird being the "grown up" and the one worrying haha How did they get to be so much cooler than us?! I turned 25 this yr and told my brother I don't feel that old..he said "well,you look like you're 22 or 23" I'll take it!

    Ya'know what's funny Keiko? Having three younger sisters myself I can totally relate to your dream scenario. In my dreams my sisters are always doing something that they shouldn't and I can never save them from themselves! I guess it just comes with the territory of being the older sister.

  13. "Let's go be trendy!" That's so funny. :)

    I caught my little brother's friends (all in middleschool!) smoking one day at the bus stop and I completely freaked out thinking my brother was, too.

    He wasn't. :)

  17. I was at the mall the other day and a little boy, he must have been 10 or 11 and he asked me for a cigarette! It was something out of DARE. Anyways I saw my little sister in him and yelled at him. Your story reminded me of that.

  19. they're so cute! the other day i used the word 'modern' and realized nobody uses that word anymore! lol

  20. They're so cute and sweet! At least they're not like the teenaged girls I saw at the boardwalk. I'm assuming the new trend is off the should, barely there crop tops and booty shorts because that was ALL I saw. YUCK!

  21. What lovely young ladies. The red hair streaks are super cute. Also, I was wondering about the cherries bag?

  22. Tessa and Ally both are looking very beautiful. Red hairs suits on them and are just amazing. I like their dressing sense.

  25. Oh my god, your dream!

    I had the same exact dream back in the fall. My parents were outside our house smoking, (neither of them are smokers) and I got really upset with them when I saw that. I remember telling them to stop, and they brushed me off like I was being annoyoing. So weird..

    Maybe this happens with people you care about?
