Thursday Thirteen

Today I will share 13 things about my favorite sister Jennifer.

1. Jen is my only sister.

2. She is 18 months younger than me.

3. She used to have straight hair, but every time she had a baby it switched. Back and forth, etc. It ended up being quite curly.

4. My sister now lives 15 minutes from my house:)

5. She is a nurse.

6. Jen is the only one in my family who went to college.

7. She loves m&ms of all kinds and calls them "vitamins". I love that I can go to her house and have a few vitamins whenever I feel I need them.

8. Jen has three children (including one that we nicknamed "the big-eyed baby" when he was little. Adorable.

9. I laugh so much when I am with her (especially when we go through a Wendy's drive-thru)

10. We have a lot of inside jokes and we always think they are really funny.

11. She does not highlight her hair, even though I tell her all the time that she would feel so much better if she did.

12. She is a godly woman and a very good example to me.

13. Jen is my best friend and has been for a very, very long time. I am so proud that she's my sister, even though I had nothing to do with it.

14. Jen married her "high school" sweetheart even though they parted ways for a while after high school.

15. She has been known to use a bit too much butter in recipes:)

16. She makes fantastic chicken and dumplings.

17. She is ALWAYS thinking of other people first.

18. My sister was a HUGE support while Davin was sick. Not only was she there as a sister, but since she is a nurse, I was able to ask her so many questions. She even was willing to come over the minute Davin got home from the hospital to show me how to work all of the equipment.

19. Jen saved up her own money to buy herself a bike when she was young.

20. She has a pair of yellow sandals that she calls her "happy shoes".

I do realize that is more than 13, so I will now call this, "Thirteen Thursday plus a little bit more".

I feel so honored... but would like to make one correction... when Davin came home from the hospital, I followed the ambulance home , remember?

Heather said...

You are right. I knew that, but didn't word it correctly. I stand corrected. I think you even got to our house before me and Davin, didn't you?? I was trying to find a different picture of you, but that was the only one I could find. It is a cute one, anyway.

Rachel said...

She sounds like a great sister. It's nice that you 2 are so close.

Miss Melanie said...

I want to say as well that Jen is a cool person. We had Duffers for Davin meetings at her house, and her home always felt warm and inviting. You are blessed to have a sister like her.

joeks said...

What a blessing she is to you, and I'm sure you are to her!
I have two brothers, so have never had quite that same closeness.

Heather said...

Wouldn't it be nice if Jenniemac put an entry up on her blog that is presently blank???

Nicole said...

How precious. I too have a best friend in one of my sisters. There is nothing better! What a gift.

Martha said...

It must have been torture for you living here when Jen had her first baby. (You were here weren't you?) Having sisters who are also friends is the best!

Michelle said...

Very cute post!Yes, I would love to read one of Jen's posts on her blog. She is so funny, and has lots of stories too!

Heather said...

Yes, Martha, I lived in NY for the births of all of Jen's babies. It was very hard, but we did visit often.

Wow! I can't believe how much of this sounds exactly like my sister/I. Thanks 4 the comment. Come back sometime :)

Christine said...

Your sister sounds wonderful! You two are blessed to have each other.

Angie said...

You're so blessed to have her. I sure would have liked to have a sister. She sounds like such a dear!
