Birthday Girl

Happy 32nd Birthday Jen

Today I wanted to wish Jenny a very happy day. I couldn't ask for a better friend and could list way more than 32 things I love or know about her, but I'll keep with blogger tradition and post just 32 of them.

1. Our morning walks are a must.

2. She loves being a mom and is great at it.

3. She doesn't mind being a bit silly with me.

4. Her love for Chuy's is almost as great as mine.

5. She gives way more than is ever expected or asked of her.

6. She is my "where are we going today" friend.

7. She is super outgoing and has forced me to push a little of my shyness aside and has made me more outgoing.

8. I finally got her to switch to Diet Coke and she loves it ALMOST as much as me.

9. She never runs errands without calling to see if I have had my Diet Coke fix and brings me one if I haven't.

10. She was my Room Mom partner and did way more than I did.

11. Is NOT a procrastinator.

12. She loves to clean and organize things. She might just have a job when we are packing and unpacking after we move.

14. She loves to go to the Temple.

15. She rarely misses her Visiting Teaching.

16. Our girlfriend getaway weekend will be a yearly tradition.

17. We like most of the same things. You can look at our wardrobes, shoes, cars, etc. and see that.

18. She always is willing to share a meal with me.

19. We are often mistaken for each other and referred to as sisters, twins, and even mother and daughter once. Even people at church get us confused, as well as Greg and Doug.

20. She loves and supports Doug completely.

21. She loves to get pedicures with me.

22. Jenny and I have the same middle name, just different spelling. Ann & Anne

23. She always knows when I need a little pick me up, phone call, break from the kids and is willing to help me out always.

24. She watches or has my kids over to play at her house more than she should.

25. She NEVER forgets to write and send thank you cards. Me on the other hand not so good at keeping up.

26. She loves to shop.

27. We both got makeovers for the first time from MAC. Why we waited so long, I have no idea.

28. She convinced me to dress up for Halloween, something I haven't done in years!

29. She is a convert to our church and has a strong testimony.

30. She eats Chips Ahoy cookies and milk every night and stays skinny!

31. We connected as soon as we met and I'm sure I will be lost without her next year.

32. She is a special friend that will remain that way always.

I hope you have a fabulous day full of love, laughter, smiles, and great memories. Love Ya Tons!

I'll see you in a week. I'll miss you.

Wish Jenny a happy birthday here.

So cute. I love all the pictures of you two. You do have a lot of matching outfits! I wish I could figure out how to eat cookies every night and be skinny (oh wait, maybe it has something to do with your twice daily workouts!).

I've been missing your posts! But I know how summer is and that your life isn't exactly "laid back" right now with a new job and new responsibilities! You are such a great friend and you're both lucky to have each other.
