Blood Families and Blogging Families

If you follow me on Twitter, you may or may not have seen this tweet

I kid you not.
He has a bald spot on the side of his head now.

And then I was thinking of all the other things that go in my house.
And I realized, we aren't your run-of-the-mill American
suburban family that you might think we are. 
I mean, yes, we live in the suburbs.
However, we are not like they portray us on TV.
We are a little crazy.
And it's just how I like it. 

My mother and I have dance parties in her bathroom while trying on clothes.
Just last night, my mom pretended she was Spiderman for a good thirty minutes.

My brother and I used to fight all the time.
But now we hang out a lot.
And I realized he's pretty cool.
But also crazy.
While watching True Blood, he said
"Lighting a girl on fire is the best way to break up with them"
{I'm almost sure he was kidding, but he said it with a straight face}

We also like to bake together.
The other day we made brownies.
Well, I made brownies and he sharpened kitchen knives..

Last night we counted/sorted all the spare change in our house.
We have like 20 pounds worth.
Maybe more.
So we've decided to take it all to Coinstar and then take whatever amount of
money we make, then we are going to spend all the money doing one thing.
Our hope is to go stay in a hotel in Galveston one weekend and spend our money there.

Even though my brother managed to shave his head in his sleep and my mom pretends to be fictional characters, I love my family to death.
I can't imagine how boring my life would be without these people in it. 
Family is a really important concept to me.
I like the idea of those who support you no matter what you do.
I can't imagine not being close with my mom and my brother.
It would make this crazy life that much harder.

Speaking of families, I want to bring some of you lovely ladies into my bloggy family.
Yep, that's right! 
 I want to swap buttons with some of you lovely ladies for the month of July.
If you're interested or would like more information send me an email at:

Whether you're in my blood family, my friend family, or my blog family I think you're pretty great.
