Darin' Erin

It all started out so innocently....a talk in Sacrament meeting. The topic was innocent enough: "Diligence in Progressing the Gospel." If I wasn't such a procrastinator, it may have never happened. But, there I was...ten minutes before church began, scribbling words on a scrap of paper hoping they'd shape themselves into some sort of coherent thought. Then Erin walked in, and by the look on her face I knew something was up. "I will bake you a batch of cookies if you can work the word 'masturbation' into your talk." And then she was gone. It was on! Being the brilliant, quick witted mind that I am, she had to know I would succeed. And succeed I did, with barely a hint of a smile!

True to her word, Erin baked me the yummiest ensemble of crumbly cookie crust, caramel, walnuts, and chocolate covered in sprinkles!

It was a bitter sweet gift because the next day she was moving to Yuma Arizona! No, she's not a snow bird...she's the newest employee of a large pile of dirt-
-soon to be the All American Canal! It's only been a week since she left, but her absence is felt every day. Here are just a few things we love about Erin:

  • Shayla ~ Everything!
  • Sarah ~ I love Erin because she laughs at me even when no one else thinks I'm funny. She's the one who can tell me to shut up and mean it as a term of endearment. She's my third sister who makes fun of me for my love of pink and my domesticity. And she's the one who says to my crazy plans, "Well, why not?"
  • Lisa ~ She is so selfless, and "uber" funny! I love her.
  • Shara ~ Trustworthy, good, confidant, hilarious! If ever I thought I was going too far I knew there was Erin who would still laugh. All her innuendos. Looked after people. She stole my bra and pillow and penguin and put it on my porch. She's a sister!
  • Heather ~ I love when she says kinky things that make me giggle out of embarrassment.
  • Sarah ~ Hasn't text me back yet....but I will fill it in as soon as she does.
  • Dana ~ Heart Erin and miss her terribly. Here's the amazing thing about Erin: She has all these "Big Sisters" she looks up to (big=Older) when really, it's us who look up to her; I know I do. That's erin. =D
  • Somer ~ She's the complete friend package! A true sister! Someone to laugh with, cry with, and burst out in song with!
Erin, you are an amazingly wonderful woman, full of Moxy! You're an example to all of your friends as to what true friendship really is! The light of Christ shines through you and warms those around you! We love you! We miss you! Come visit us soon!

Ok Soms. I knew you were going to do this. But I read it at work and almost started to bawl. I miss you all so much. I loved being able to just show up and get a hug or laugh. Or just be. My couch (when I get one) will be open to all of you! I love you all tons. But don't do this mushy stuff anymore. I don't have enough money for kleenexes!!!
