I have the biggest mouth in the entire world, so it's no surprise that keeping a big secret from my sister was pretty hard for me to do.

My mom called me about a week ago to let me know that Apollo High School called and told her that my sister, Sam, was nominated for homecoming queen. My mom told me I couldn't tell anyone. REALLY?! Why even tell me then?! I was around my sister all weekend for "girls weekend," and I didn't say one word. It was extremely hard for me to keep quiet!

This morning students from her school woke her up this morning at 5 a.m. to surprise her with the big news. But, here's the twist--no one could find her because she wasn't in her bed. Apparently, she fell asleep on the couch last night--so, when the student film crew got to her house, no one knew where she was. They finally found her and all was right with the world. That'll teach her to stay up late and fall asleep watching Netflix on the couch on a school night.

Congratulations to Sam and all of the 2016 homecoming candidates!
