My sister, Lacey, Alix, and I had our second video chat date Wednesday night and it was just as much fun as our first one a month ago. I felt like a teenager again, but this time, with girl friends who were in three different time zones. Anyone remember the game Girl Talk?

We even went old school seventh grade sleepover style and made a prank call. Lacey called LoLo and pretended to be this cougar woman from New York. Back in New York, he worked at a fireplace building/cleaning company and this cougar woman had hit on him hard core and even called his company to ask for him to come back to her apartment the next day. Lacey pretended to be the cougar and it was hilarious. He kept saying "Why are you calling me? I don't even live in New York anymore! I'm sorry, I can't help you with your fireplace!" I couldn't stop laughing and even though I tried to hold it in, LoLo said he could hear us all laughing over the phone. As soon as she called him a second time, he came running up the stairs and said, "Erin! Don't play with me! I don't play childish games!"
Luckily for me, he totally passed the test. He was respectful but also didn't bite when she asked him to call her back when he came back to New York. Also lucky for me, his new job keeps him in good spirits and he laughed it off.
Maybe someday I can get him to tell the story about the cougar in a vlog because seriously, everyone who hears him tell the story asks to hear it again because it's so funny.
I'm so happy my sister begged me to get into blogging. Not only has it been a great outlet for me, it's also allowed me to meet some amazing friends who I feel like I've known forever. Sometimes I even forget I haven't actually met them in person!
I'm off to New York this weekend to snuggle with my little nieces and laugh with the rest of our family there. Rumor has it we might be making a music video on their rooftop terrace. Stay tuned.
