About Sissy

So I guess it's about time that I shed some light on who I am. The name is easy enough to explain. I have two darling younger sisters that I love with all my heart that call me Sis or Sissy. Sis #1 is 16 and a senior in high school. She is a brilliant artist and is tons of fun. She has me playing the protective sister constantly because she is a bombshell and I know the guys are going to be trouble! Sis #2 is 7 going on 13. She is a social butterfly. She cheerleads, is in Girl Scouts (those damn cookies), and loves to sing to Hillary Duff. I have a feeling that I will have to play the protective sister with this one too. And now I guess it's time to share a little bit about me. I'm going to borrow Machelle's Ten Layers of Me, that she got from her Blog Mom Tammi. No sense in re-inventing the wheel here.
