My funniest friend...

Let me tell you a little bit about my friend, Jessica Burk! We met in 2003 {?} at Metro Family Church. The first time I noticed her, she was singing on stage and her gorgeous diamond ring was so sparkly in the stage lights. Soon after, the two of us and our Matt's went to dinner and had an instant connection! She is a one-of-a-kind friend...a friend like I've never had before and I'm sure I never will again! Honestly, we have very little in common...she's into politics, I couldn't care less...she does good to put up a Christmas tree and my whole house is transformed...she is very health conscious & "green" (minus her recent fruit and ice cream diet), while I really give it very little attention...she LOVES to run (while listening to talk radio), and I think it is the most horrible and torturous thing in the world...but, for some reason, we work! She's my funniest friend and I love that I often have that "really good laugh" when I'm with her! She's honest...I know that I can always come to her when I need someone to be real with me...whether about a big decision or my new hair cut. Her life is inspirational...really, she could write a book with all of the twists, turns, ups and downs she's experienced! ...But, there's one thing for sure...she's precious to me and on Tuesday, she's going to be a MOMMY!!! ...And, it's a thing I can hardly wait to have in common with her!

We'll see you TUESDAY! ThePoeFam can't wait to meet Baby Christopher!

Oh LORD HAVE MERCY. First of all, thank you for such a sweet post. Seriously. But secondly, and equally as important... I don't know which smile is more hideous - the big, goofy real one, or the terrible, "am I supposed to be looking at the camera? fake one." :) I need to work on my photo smile.

Anyway, you make me laugh. I wasn't a very funny friend today - I pretty much just complained about my back all through lunch!

And one more example of how opposite we are - I am wearing the exact same outfit (I think even down to the cami) that I wore last time I was in pictures with you and Quinn. I don't think you ever wear the same outfit twice - much less for photos. :)

And about the running and talk radio torture - I can't WAIT to start that again. Seriously. I miss it soooo much!

Thanks again for a sweet post. :) We were glad to get to see you guys. We don't hang out near as much as we used to...
