The Article

Alrighty, so not to blatantly self-promote (again) . . . the link to our cover-girl article is up so I thought we should share it with our cyber friends who don't get to walk in every store in the state of Mississippi and see Katie and me staring up from the counter.  Seriously, this magazine is ubiquitous--I was in Jackson this week and it was everywhere.  I feel like Brangelina--should we now be known as "Katie Frances"? or "Skatie"?

Anyway, our favorite photographer Joey snapped our picture at the coffee shop last week.


Here's the article--and, the illustration on the top left was done by ME (Sarah Frances) not Katie (even though I'm sure she could do some great pix herself if she wanted).  They're going to run a correction in next month's magazine which is coming out soon and our tabloid fame will sadly come to an end. Sigh.

I LOVED the article. The one following was quite sad. But the whole article was awesome! YAY!!

As for Skatie - I LOVE it. I am always combining names. It is a habit of mine that I've picked up from celebrity mags and sites.

I already email my sis and call Lisa and Laura, LiLa. lol. I'm a big dork but for as long winded as I can be, I'm always nicknaming things for the sake of "brevity"...how ironic.

SF, that illustration is AWESOME!! I love Swishy!! It's so super cute!!

Great article, gals!!!! I think you both sound "wicked cool!" (I LOVE the word wicked!)

And my vote is def for Skatie!

This article was AMAZING, and that last author's story made me cry. I can't imagine losing one child, but two? It's just unthinkable. The strength that it would take to get through something like that is just astounding. That is just an incredible story. I bet she'll end up on Oprah and her books will be best-sellers.

Skatie (do you like how I've already adopted your new name?) this is just fabulous PR for you two. I see big things in your future!

PC - I can't wait to tell Laura that you're calling us LiLa. The fact that people even talk about us is kind of hilarious and we've never had a fun nickname before. Oh gosh, I'm starting to tear up again...Just so we know, do you and Little Ms. J have a duo nickname that we can use? Right now we've been referring to you as the funny sisters. Yeah it seems that we suck at both nicknames AND titles.

Yo! Skate: I dig. I dig it all.

PurpleClover said...

We'd be honoured! But we don't already have a nickname I'm afaid...so that will have to be up to you guys! lol.

Katie said...

How about Lil' Clover? Or Ms. Purple?

Solvang Sherrie said...

So, Skatie, the article was great and how fun that you're cover girls! Work it! :^)

Katie said...

Hey guys! thanks for reading about our lil' brush with fame :-)

btw, hey Paulie - we're tied for second in Nathan B's basketball challenge! Woo hoo! Even though I don't know a durn thing about b-ball, I am loving being in a bracket and all. But T McB is now in FIRST!

He better watch it. I'm feeling lucky today :-)

Anyone else doing it??

Lisa and Laura said...

Hmmm...what about the PJ sistas!? Or maybe just Purple J. It sounds like some type of drug reference, but maybe that's a good thing...

Shelli said...

You guys are too cute. Congrads on PR - way to get ahead on marketing!

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

FABULOUS article, girls! Your pictures are adorable! And how great that they used your illustration sf. Whoo hoo!!!
Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christy Raedeke said...

SKATIE! Love it!

I'm so glad we finally got to see the article, but damn that ad for Nuke's shrimp po-boys! Now it's all I can think about...

Little Ms J said...

Yay! I'm so excited for you guys! I want to move to Oxford! I already told my husband we need to make a pilgrimage to this fairy tale town that you guys brag about! And, I L-O-V-E Skatie! SF, very talented! Swishy is cool and I'm so curious to see some of your other illustrations. Where can I see them? Swishy has a little of the Tim Burton-esque feel to it - the exaggerated limbs and round faces and such. Love it!

Skatie - you guys are a powerhouse.

Kelly H-Y said...

Awesome article; fantastic illustration; and beautiful pics of the two of you ... what more could you ask for?! Congratulations!

PurpleClover said...

OMG Christy you crack me up because I was thinking the same thing! AFter I saw the ad I was like...man where can I find some shrimp around here...lol.

Hardygirl said...

Thanks everybody!!

But, I have to say that Ajax Diner has MUCH better shrimp poboys than Newk's. Hmm. . . lunch?
