Happy Birthday Miss Chelsey Shaw, this blog is for you!So it finally happened, I crossed #30 off my list. That's right, I was reunited with my long lost "twin" Chelsey Shaw (formerly Newman)...and her mother Lori <insert momma Lori>, and her sister Sophie <insert the cutest human being ever>. And surprisingly the world didn't end. I was kind of nervous about us being together...since that much awesomeness in one place might throw the world off it's axis. Which would send us flying through space. Where we inevitably collide with another planet...thus the world ending. Have I mentioned before that I have a vivid imagination (I believe I have...so you've already been warned). Anyways, the world didn't end, but I believe that mine was forever changed.
To show y'all why this reunion was so epic, here are three photos:

To say that this weekend was amazing is like saying the Grand Canyon is just a pothole <insert it's a ridiculous understatement>. I can't put into words how great our reunion was. Honestly I shouldn't have expected it to be any different. But when you go almost 20 years without seeing people, and your only relationship is on Facebook (seriously we didn't exchange numbers until they were leaving to come to Pella), you wonder how it will be when you finally meet again in person.
Let me just say that I was 99.9% sure that we would get along famously. Like I said in the beginning I believe Chelsey is my long lost twin. We discovered a few years ago, when we became friends on good old Facebook, that we had a crazy assortment of things in common. From the music we liked, to our love for One Tree Hill (and Chris Keller's new found hotness) to our obsession with all things Harry Potter (If it was possible I would type his name with a British accent). Also we were both education majors in college (and currently for the time being, we've both left our studies to pursue other things...doesn't that sound so much better then saying we dropped out...she's for sure going back, as for me I guess anythings possible). It's somewhat eerie <insert awesome> all the things we have in common. It makes you wonder if there was something in the water. But I guess since our mother's are so much a like, that it would be odd if we weren't a like...right? I don't know, all I know is that I'm thankful that our mom's became friends many moons ago because I'm absolutely in love with Chelsey Newman (and if you knew her, you would be too).
