So imagine Paige and myself, both wearing (matching) sweatsuits. We are crawling across hot coals in the Sahara dessert while Pitbulls “You Know You Want Me” is playing loudly in the background. When this is over we wash your feet with our hair and Kelly Bensimon appears eating jelly beans and telling US that WE are crazy. SO basically, its our personal hell... Thats how bad we feel about being delinquent bloggers, so this is our apology. Please, forgive us for our absence. Forgive our souls and our lately pathetic blog. Thanks!
With that, we give your our 4th of July Maturity Index (THREE WEEKS LATE):
-Holly (being the ONLY person in her office during a summer friday because she had to wait for an "important fax"!) rolls around the floor at work and goes outside to take a tan/fro yo break-Age 24

Barbs’s Secret Sauce:
A few tablespoons butter
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 can Coca Cola
Melt butter and garlic. Dump in ketchup in and coke. Stir stir stir until it condenses a bit. Consume attop grilled oysters (or if you're poor like us, some turkey pepperoni or slim jims).

So 3 weeks later we are letting you know that over the 4th we ended up being 23.5. Which is pretty good! However us not writing out blog is mean and cruel to all of our 43 fans (followers) doesn't get an age because it's just that bad.
Please forgive and still like us.
Forever Your Girls (we mean it!),
Holly and Paige
