Happy Birthday Nenni!

Yes, I meant to put an "N" instead of a "J". (When I was little, I called Jenni "Nenni")
It's her Birthday today!! let me just tell you a little bit about my Jenni!

We were born 2 weeks apart (Thanks Mom and Carol!) and we do everything together! We are together so much that people actually think we look alike? What?! Yup, they do! Sometimes it's even like we have the same brain! I can almost always tell what she is thinking. I know almost everything about her! We have shared pretty much everything together! Ups and Downs, exciting and Sad, we've been through it all! Growing up we always hoped for/joked about (our mom's weren't joking, they really wanted it) having a joint wedding! We got married 4 months apart instead. Close enough!
We used to joke (before we were married) that we were like each other's boyfriends because when we were apart we missed each other so much! Before I made the move to Rexburg, Jenni was there without me! We were apart almost ALL YEAR!! That's the longest we had been apart our whole lives. When I moved to Rexburg we realized how CRAZY that was! We missed each other if we were apart for just a couple days. Or even one day sometimes!

My life definitely wouldn't be the same without her. (Now it really sounds like I'm talking about my boyfriend, or-now Husband :) Don't worry Jarom, I still love you!! hee hee) She is one of the greatest blessings in my life! I don't know if you can ever know how much I love her or understand the special relationship we have!

We grew up living 15 steps away (yes, we counted. We're THAT cool) So it's only appropriate that we now live in the same apartment complex ( I don't know how many steps away) with our husbands! Luckily, they are friends now, too!!

There's so, SO much more but I'll spare you all the stories. This post already sounds like a "lover" post. Ha ha
I Love you!

"I've never had someone that knows me like you do, the way you dooooo." "cuz we belong together now, life would suck without you!" "Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear jennnnniiii. Happy birthday to you!" "I gotta feelin. That tonight's gonna be a good night. tonight's the night, lets live it up" "so i put my hands up, they playin my song...noddin my head like yeah, movin my hips like yeah....its a party in the woodmansee apartment." (or, in the USA if your'e Miley Cyrus)

OH my gosh, you really do know me the best because you sure know how to get my crying!! Steph, that was the tenderist, specialist post! I love you so much and am so incredibly thankful for your friendship. For real, life would NOT be right without you!!!

I'm 1,000,000% glad that we are neighbors again. We're so spoiled, that I don't ever want to move away!!!

Thank you so much for making me feel so special. I love you so so much. You're the best friend I could ask for.

And also, i love that you talked about the Rexburg days, because you seriously were my boyfriend! hahahahahahahaha!!


Where to start- I still can't get over how you guys live in the same complex, and I'm wondering what is going to happen when your husbands get jobs- and it cracked me up when you said you counted how many steps it took to get to eachother's houses, I can totally imagine you guys doing that- love both of you-

I've always been so grateful for your friendship and think it's amazing. I hope it lasts forever.
