30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 5

Your Siblings

This is my brother, Matt. (And our ADORABLE dog, Deuce)

(This picture was taken after a powder puff game I played in...I don't normally wear eye black)


 This picture is just so funny to me


So my brother is 3 years older than me. And let me tell you, he is one heck of a big brother. He taught me about "legends" (AKA scared the bejeezus out of me), which wrestlers to root for (I was a Goldberg and Sting fan!), and how to make a free throw. He is also an amazing role model for me to look up to.


Matt had all of his priorities straight...he made great grades, played every sport there was (and excelled in all of them), and had an awesome group of friends. We got over the whole "brother-sister bickering" phase (thank goodness!) by the time I was a freshman in high school and he was a senior. We even took an art class together and had weekly competitions on whose painting was better.

One of my very favorite memories with Matt is our trip to Europe. It was finals week of my freshman year of college, and I was studying away. I got a call on a Monday night from Matt, asking me if I wanted to join him on his 3 week backpacking trip all over Europe. I didn't think he was serious at first, but when I realized this was for real, I immediately stopped studying and started booking flights and trains. I took my last final that Tuesday night, drove home to Marietta to pack and buy last minute things, and was on a plane by Wednesday afternoon to London. I won't go into much detail because I plan on talking about this trip in a later post (Day 23: Favorite Vacation) but it was so fun to just spend time with Matt before we grow up, get married, and have kids. Of course, we had our moments where we wanted to kill each other, but it was a once in a lifetime experience that I wouldn't trade for anything!



Matt is now married to my wonderful sister-in-law Kelly, and they live in Raleigh with their fiesty dog, Maggie, and sweet cat, Coco. I wish they lived closer!

Our Dolphins Flag is constructed of polyester, measures 3x5 feet, and has two metal grommets for attaching to a traditional flagpole, tailgate pole, or our 6' aluminum flagpole. The perimeter of our Dolphins Flag is double stitched and the Officially Licensed NFL Miami Dolphins team logos are dye sublimated into the flag so they won't peel. Due to its large size, this flag is also perfect to hang in your game room, sports room, office, or kids room.
