The Girls I Grew Up With

I was just reading on (really fun website), and found an article by Sarah Heyward about "the girls" she grew up with. Not the chicks from Twilight, Jersey Shore or Hanna Montana. But girls in books.

Books were a craze when I was a kid (especially for me).

Here are the girls I grew up with:

Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield in Sweet Valley High (my sisters and I even had the board game)

Jessie and Violet (with their brothers) in The Boxcar Children

Ashleigh in Thoroughbred (Katie and I fought over these)

Laura and Mary in Little House on the Prairie (and the TV series too)

I know I read others- but these were my staples. 

What girls did you grow up with?

All About Ashley

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
