Cast of my life....

Today is all about Marissa, my baby sister. I know I have talked and bragged about her so many times on this blog and it is easy to do when she excels in so much. But I am getting ahead of myself, lets start at the beginning......
We are 11 years apart which is HUGE and I was called "Junior Mommy" when it came to her. When she was a baby I remember always being the first person up in the morning so I could be the one to go into her nursery and get her up. Memories like that are burned into me like the day I knew I was going to have a baby brother.
 I am not even sure Marissa would remember all of this but growing up on Sundays I worked the nursery at church because when we dropped off Marissa she cried. And yup, I couldn't take it....so for years I worked in the nursery every Sunday so my Roonie wouldn't have to cry. When she first started taking dance I also became the "self appointed" class "demonstrator" because I didn't want her to cry or be without one of us. Can you say spoiled much? And I am pretty sure I took a spanking or two on her behalf....I wouldn't ever let her cry. (Don't act like you never got spanked a time or two)
Marissa was everything you could be in High School and watching her graduate at the top of her class and as Sr. Class President was so amazing for all of us. Did I mentioned she was in Choir? 3 Musicals?
When Marissa went to OU (Boomer Sooner) she became my sister twice over........Delta Delta Delta! Getting to initiate her was very special and I love that she has flourished in the house! This year my sister is Scandals Director......which for those who don't know is a huge musical competition between all the Greek houses! It is so fun.
My sister just this past year has really come into her own......I think she has blossomed into the tall beauty she always will be. You know how you continue to change while you are growing up... I didn't think she could be any prettier but she is! 
Marissa is a Okc Thunder loving, silly, tender hearted, God Loving, hard studying, shabby chic, wonderful girl!
Would you believe that she is going to be 21 next month? Lucky for me she is coming to visit during her Spring Break so we can celebrate her Birthday early.....this will be the first one EVER I will miss. I swear I say it all the time but if I could be anyone I would want to come back as Marissa.
Baby sisters are the best aren't they? Something I love is that just recently our relationship has developed into more of a friendship and our 11 years don't seem so far apart anymore.
