happy birthday, sissyface

Wednesday, May 05, 2010

Today, my baby sister turns 24. I will spare you the whole I was just 24 and don't understand how my sister is 24 because that means I am really getting old rant because today is Jessica's special day. Not mine.

So rather than rant on and on, I will share some of my fave things about my sissy {and a few photos, of course}.

Me {left} and Jess {right} embracing the 80s. Thanks, mom.
  • Jess sounds exactly like Whitney Port mixed with the girl in these videos. Honestly, half of what she says makes her sounds like an entertainment columnist. And no, I am not exaggerating. A few weeks ago, I was getting ready to go to dinner with some friends. I asked her what she thought of my outfit {because I always ask her what to wear} and she said "Rachel Zoe would approve. So would Kelly Cutrone". And yes, she was dead serious. I wish I could record a convo with her and play it here for all of you.
  • We love all the same TV shows, and like to quote & talk about them. She really gets my love of TV. She doesn't watch 9 by Design, but I guess everyone is entitled to a flaw.
  • Actually, she has one more flaw. She likes the new 90210 and switched to a Blackberry. Traitor. Fortunately, she is switching back. We are a Mac family. Now if only she could realize that there is only one 90210...
She has lots of Christmas cheer.
  • We share a sense of humor. Very few people get it, but we can always make each other laugh. I assume that most people don't find us very funny, but we do. It's a sister thing.
  • She considered Perez Hilton to be "the news" but also loves real news. Jess is very cultured.
  • Her obsession with pop culture is nice, because I can find out anything I need to whenever I want. All the info I need is just a text message or phone call away. She knows it all. And if she doesn't, she will instantly look it up because she needs to know it all.
  • She will occasionally find little things and pick them up for me. She is very thoughtful.
She loves Disneyland. And she especially loves Disneyland at Christmas time.
  • She loves flea markets.
  • She loves animals. She is obsessed with my pup and calls him her "best friend." No need to spoil that and remind her that he is in fact my best friend.

She loves me. I know this may come as a huge surprise to most of you, but {brace yourselves} I can {sometimes} be a lot to handle. I know you may not believe that, but it's true. And she is a good sister to me. I love her for that.
  • She was born on Cinco de Mayo.
  • If I bother her over and over and over again about something, I can generally get my way. She is a very good little sister.
  • She brushes her hair a lot. Even at Disneyland.
She is very sassy, a little crass, and very funny.
  • She has a good heart & is a good friend.
  • She gets me. We have 10,000 inside jokes and 98% of the time, we are the only ones that think they're funny.
I love my sissy.

If you're on twitter, I'm sure she'd love it if you wished her a happy birthday. And to celebrate her birthday, I am holding a giveaway here.

Happy Birthday/Cinco de Mayo, Jess! I love you!
