The one and only Tara

Happy Birthday TARA!!!I hope you have a great one tomorrow (Wednesday) and we will go out when I get home!
Enjoy your cake :)

I love my best friend Tara, she has been there for just about everything important in my life so far. An example? :

She was there during the hardest times in high school.....you know the peer pressure, boy problems part of high school you just want to forget? She was always there to listen and let me cry.
(We always stood by each other when cheering)

Go Bombers!

She was there and the main influence when i joined The Church of Latter Day Saints. Every step of the way she was there, took me to church, introduced me to the missionaries answered my questions... and she hasn't left my side since. Her and her family had a huge impact on me. I am blessed everyday because of the friend/missionary she was during that time of my life. Thank you Tara!
(On our "Senior Trip" to Rexburg....so much fun!)
She was my bridesmaid at my wedding, she made the trek back from Rexburg just to come and support me at the temple.

She has been there during the labor of each of my babies.....Tara, didn't you eat lunch while I was contracting with Nolan?? lol....
(Tara, why don't I have any pictures of you with my kids!??!)

She takes random trips with me without asking questions and makes it one of the most fun trips I have ever taken.
(Us in Hawaii last year...this was day one and we were already fried)
Some of the other reasons I love Tara:
She is one of the best Aunt Taras ever
She is hilarious
She has the best listening ear
She has a great memory and often puts me to shame
She is going to be the BEST mommy
She loves Broccoli
She is such a wonderful example to everyone
She loves all of her friends
She looks out for my well being and tries to get me to eat veggies like Tomatoes
and she is a great wife to Jason

Have a wonderful Birthday Tara! I wish someday I could become as great of a friend that you have been to me. Thank you!!

Hey, have you done a cake class because you need to do one if you haven't!! Those cakes are awesome! Forget popping zits, that looks way more fun! And I was going to ask you if you are into Meridian magazine.
(www.meridianmagazine.com)
Anywho, it is a great magazine for members of the church whether you subscribe or read it online. There is this blog called nieniesdialogues.blogspot.com. Its about this member family that suffered a tragic accident and the mother writes the blog (the accident happened to her and her husband)... She was featured on today show and like 20,000 people tune into her blog... She makes you want to be a mother and be better. Her blog and story is amazing and they featured her on meridian. My mom got me hooked. If you check the website and read the articles in extraordinary stories... there are tons about member families and amazing people! It is really inspiring... I just read it and cried through the whole thing so I thought I would share... Plus we found out that we were having a girl. I was really hoping for a boy, but it is a blessing either way. I cried all day I found out (Haha I am pathetic), but I guess here comes the drama of little girls! This might really test my faith... haha jk!

I don't know if Tara remembers me, but my friend Amy and I used to tease her brother, Robbie, a.k.a. Howard. I always thought Tara was such a nice person. I hope she had a wonderful birthday!

P.S.
Those cheer uniforms are SO familiar! Don't you love that they were one piece? So crazy! Have the Bomber cheerleaders gotten new uniforms since??? Because those were ordered before I even cheered. I think they were new in '93....that's sad!!
