Shout Out!

To the loveliest roommates:

The dumb things: we like the same foods (except Taco Bell:D), the same fashions, she's mah nigt.

She is hilarious when she doesn't mean to be. For example:
(swatting cake off Becky's fork) "NO BECKY!" THAT'S MY PIECE!! Yesterday you ate one of my baby carrots without asking!"

She lets me take pictures of her incessantly. She knows the entire "library card" Arthur rap. She makes people feel good about themselves. She is effortless. Talented. She appreciates things. She's one of the best listeners I've ever met in my life. She's so mature-she's going to make a great mom. Her testimony radiates from her being! It's so uplifting. I just love being around her


She is SO freaking funny that I can't stop myself from laughing at positively everything that comes out of her mouth.

Some favorites:

(on the phone): "mom, I have to go, I'm reading Harry Potter out loud to, mom, it IS a school book...NO, it's for Harry Potter 212."

"I heard there was no dancing...
Brooke: "YEAh there is!! It's a dance!"
Katie: "No Lil' Jon. How'm I 'posed ta dance?"

"Keep going, Muhafa."

"Becky, you jacked my tape! Next time you jack my tape, I'll jack your face, ho!"

"Becky, you're like a naughty child. If I have to come out here again, you'll have to go back to bunk bed. That won't feel very good, will it?"
Becky: "Mom, can I have a drink of water?"
Katie: "Um, could you suck my butt?"
Katie: "Becky, what will I do when you leave? I'll have nothing to play with."
Becky: "I've only had this wheelchair for a week."
Katie: "Best week of my LIFE!"

DBritt: "What kind of accent is that?"
Katie: "I'm from ze sexy land of ze sexy mischief."

"Wait-is Western Family only in the W...OH. I HATE myself."

"Okey foldy."
"Nobody gets the 'foldy.' Obviously it's dokey."

"At my sister's wedding I had a bright red WWJD bracelet on. The pictures were great. Ah, Jesus. What would He do."
"One time, I was jumping on my parents' bed, and I floated. I don't know how it happened, but I flew around the room."

"This is Shan. Actually, it's Shannon. You gave me that nickname when you met me just now. Did you clean up after the dance? Said Shan."

and, of course: "BALLIN'!"

And yet she has depth to her, and she's so smart and motivated! She doesn't ever try to be someone she's not. I love her. Bean-hating, Beatles/Harry Potter-loving, hilariously amazing Katie Harris.

Where can I even start? I can't describe four years of best-friend-ness in a little paragraph-I've already tried in every yearbook entry and pretty much every day, but here we go again. She listens to me, she's hilarious-especially when she gets in those silly moods and "looks like a lerp", she is intelligent, blah, blah, blah. Never has anyone completed me so completely as Kaylie Jean Hancock-so much so that we gave each other middle names. She's really good at rounding, cooking chicken (or so I hear), being spiritual, and being incredible. I can talk to her for hours upon hours about everything and nothing. When we get on the same wavelength, there's no stopping us (even if we happen to walk through a horrific fart.) AGH I love every particle of her.

I love you guys, so, so much. I'm so thankful for you and all you do and are for me-I know that we've met for a reason. Words can't describe my feelings for you and all the memories we've
shared. Sappy, sappy, sorry-I just can't wait to keep making more!

You're so great Brooke. Thanks for writing this. It made my day.

Also, thanks for scaring my pants off last night, and stroking my face and 'crushing' me.

Haha, I love you, so darn much.
