Ode to Melanie

I have this friend. Her name is Melanie. She is fun and sassy and smart and goofy and awesome in every way.

Here are a few things you should know about her:
1. She plays a mean hand of blackjack. Seriously, that girl has some skill.

2. She is a terrific cook yet has been known to eat cereal with me for dinner.

3. She is the best landlord you could ever ask for. E-VER.

4. She is thoughtful and kind and lets me shop in her jewelry box.

5. She did a great job at picking out her bridesmaid dresses. BIG POINTS for this one.

6. Her love for chocolate cake has seen no rival.

7. She has a girl dog named in Mr. Darcy. *Sigh.*

8. I have never seen a husband more joyous at seeing his wife than hers.

9. She bought me Peanut Butter Haagen Dazs. There are no words for this.

10. She knows how to be a friend for life. And I am so thankful for that.

Happy Friday, Mel! Go eat some cake for me. :)


  1. I have a chocolate cupcake sitting on my desk as we speak... What does that say about me?
    So very glad to have you as a lifelong friend! I like you even more than chocolate cake - and that's saying something!

  2. We love Melanie. Oh yes, we do. Lots and lots. :) She's the wonderful Mrs. Wenig!!

    - The Seester

  3. What a wonderful tribute to a worthy woman! Melanie, you're wonderful! And Sarah? You're the bestest.

  4. I only wish to have known her better! Glad she can bless you and that God blessed Scott with her.

  5. 11. She is the best lover-of-other-people's-kids that I know.

    12. Melanie has excellent taste in both decor and clothing (among other things).

    13. Her Southern charm makes me love her even more.

    14. She is one tough cookie.
