And the Gals...

The thank-yous continue with...
My Girlfriends

Every girl has at least one really close girlfriend. I am fortunate to have several, but I'm only going to pick on, err, thank, the two who have been most involved with Just One of the Guys. All of my girlfriends have been there for me when I most needed them, gone shopping when we've had cash, and watched movies at home when I'm hooked up to an ice machine. I love all of them, and I am very lucky to know such strong, compassionate, and beautiful young women. So thanks Chelsea and Ashley!

Chelsea- You have known me longer than anyone else (aside from my family). Your a sister of the heart, and I'm so glad that you and I met. We've been there for each other through thick, thin, and freshman year.
I don't know many people who could be as patient with my craziness and many injuries as you. Nor do I know many people who visit their friend's home in order to clean their room... I love you!
P.S. We really need to go to the beach sometime!

Ashley- Thanks for being so amazingly awesome. You've been to hockey games with me, helped me live through your brother's visits to see my brother, and supported me through two seasons of marching band. You've dealt with my competition hyperactivity and my untimely nacho cravings. Truly, you deserve an award. But all I can say is this... I love you like Tuesday!
P.S. Don't you love Hallmark's Hoops and Yoyo?

Just One of the Guys would not have happened with the support that I have received from both of these chicks. Get your copy starting Friday!

Sam might be one of the boys, but that doesn't mean she doesn't have her girlfriends. Or her girl perspective... And that can lead to some interesting conversations when the boys get involved. Or start asking questions. This summer's band camp will never be forgotten...


  1. Oh, Iris! This is so exciting!! Congrats. Well deserved.


  2. You're inspiration to us all!

    Congrats, Iris...


  3. I love you like Tuesday too!!! Thanks for the thanks and marching band will never be the same with out you... I will miss my carpool buddy who is now an author who is turning 16 soon and is being published on Friday!!!!

  4. Close friends are always the greatest! They really provide some great support, don't they?


  5. Yeah. And you cyber-buddies aren't so bad either!


  6. Way too gushy for a guy. I'm out of here.

  7. Just gave your activity a looking over. Keep up the good work, heal fast so you can get off crutches. You must be so excited about the release and Happy 16th Birthday. I look forward to seeing bigger and better things from you. Barb Waters
