Our Very Own Jenna Rink

Yep, you guessed it.

The Thaker is 30.

And even though I'm two days late, I still had to give her the birthday shout-out she deserves.

Thark by numbers:

1) She LOVES the 80's.

2) She loves to read and often does so all night long, only to awake at 5:30 in the morning with Jake the early-riser.

3) She LOVES her hair and doesn't even attempt to hide it.

4) She worships at the altar of Target and is always so excited whenever she finds a new shirt ("for only 9 bucks, can you believe it???")

5) She loves to clean, deep down, scrubby, dirty clean, and you always know when she's done a "deep clean" because the smell of Clorox hits you when you pull up into the driveway.

6) She loves to bake and is awesome at it, and will often eat a cinnamon roll for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and STILL, STILL she maintains her itty-bitty figure. (It's something I truly hate about her!)

7) She knows and frequently browses which I love to torment her about because hello, she's THIRTY.

8) She doesn't use spices when she cooks which FREAKS ME OUT and she actually called me once to ask how to peel a garlic clove. I don't even know how we're friends.

9) She's admittedly vain and is NEVER, EVER seen without makeup on, hair done, and in a completely Stacey & Clinton approved outfit.

10) She's giving, honest, kind, thoughtful, caring, empathetic, a fantastic listener, and a dear, dear friend.

Happy (belated) Birthday!!!!

You have me laughing right out loud!!!! I have stunk you out before with the Clorox haven't I? Sorry about that.

You forgot to mention that almost anytime I get a cute new shirt or whatever, I call you immediately just to tell you how cute I look : ) That just goes along with my admitted vanity. I'm really a fourteen year old at heart huh?

I laughed so much reading this. Thanks for the awesome post Karen! You definitely know how to put a smile on my face.

This was really cute. I love that Tiffany likes her hair so much, since everyone else I know just complains about their's. I also feel better knowing I'm not the only one who goes on night long reading binges.

So funny. Happy Birthday Tiffani. The 30's really aren't so bad.

What a great list! I wish I loved my hair and clothes and figure and...

What a great nod to the Thark! I can't believe you don't use spices- that kind of freaks me out too.

Golly, according to this list we could be twins. Oh wait, not physically. All I know is that Tiffany looks great everytime I see her in WalMart.
