No. 3: My girls
My mom and and sister each came to visit me while I was in Texas. They're perhaps my two best friends in the world, and having them here was amazing.
My baby sister Sarah came to visit in December. While she was here we hosted the "Third Annual Bad Sweater Party: H-Town Edition."
It was fantastic.
We also went on a Ross shopping spree, checked out NASA, and I took her to Galveston to wade in the ocean for the first time.
The only downside of the visit was that somewhere along the way, we ate something bad and both got food poisoning. Just in time to not be fully hungry still by Christmas.
One of the best parts about going back to Lincoln is that I will get to be with my sister more, and I'm so excited.
My mom also came to visit in the spring. (Dad joined us eventually that weekend, but I'll get to him later.) Once again, we checked out NASA, but we went to the Kemah Boardwalk instead of Galveston. I think it has to be one of my favorite places I've been in the Houston-area.
Mom always gives me good advice and support, so spending time with her was just what I needed.
