Yesterday evening, my sister-in-law Ashley and I journeyed to Sam's Club to do some shopping for Ty's Treinta Fiesta.

I take great offense to the butchering of the English language, but Spanish, not so much. I butchered Spanish regularly while earning credit hours to graduate with my liberal arts degree. It's what I do.
Back to Ashley, I love my sister-in-law. She was the wedding planner I couldn't afford. She's one of the few things my brother and I have in common (we both love her). She's one of my best friends and there's a gaping hole in my life if I don't speak with her everyday.
With that being said, I learned a few things about my girl during our shopping trip to Sam's that made me love her even more:
- She'll do anything for you. Just yesterday she placed an order on my behalf for a cookie cake, volunteered to make fruit skewers for the party and wanted to accompany me on a trip to Sam's.
- She makes friends everywhere. In the picture above, she realized the lady at the customer service counter was wearing a finger condom, too, and they became quick friends. Ashley left the counter with a new Sam's card, a lady calling her "sister" and then yelling after her that if she needed another "rubber" the lady had one. The third part was a little awkward.
- She's an amazing shopper. We played the Guess-How-Much-This-Is-Going-To-Cost Game and she came within nine cents of the total! Is that even possible? Plus, if I'd gone surplus shopping without her, I probably would have ended up with enough shredded cheese to fill our swimming pool. She's the queen of estimating quantity, and I would have been lost without her.

See, she makes friends everywhere.
