Sweet 16 Days Until...

So, first, of course: yay, Rachel B! Thanks for being a follower! And thank you also for correct apostrophe usage (her blog is called "Books' Hidden Corner")! I hate it when people mess that up ;)

I also lost a follower. *sigh* Let's all have a moment of silence in remembrance of the time I ALMOST had 77 followers (haha, Pirates of the Caribbean). *moment of silence*

So, anyway :) Guess what I'm about to do?? Mrs. Martha (Matt and Katie's mom, my second mom) is coming to pick me and Lizzy up any second now and we're going to Matt's band concert thing. He plays the saxophone. Cavender should also be there, I think. So this should be fun :D

EDIT: It was. Matt did well, Cavender did awesome!! I never heard you play before, Cavender. Great job!

After the concert we went to McDonald's and then on the way home Matt fell asleep. *Aww* *clears throat* Sorry. I just love him and Katie like their my real little brother and sister. Something about seeing them or Lizzy sleeping just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy :) <3
