Thursday Thirteen #8

Thirteen Things: For My Sister

1. My sister and I are about two years apart (and I'm older).
2. My sister and I are about the same height: 5'11.
3. My sister has a blonde heart and soul and is sweet and pretty.
4. My sister likes to scrapbook, watch House, clean (yes, really), and take care of people.
5. My sister graduated from college with a degree in Political Science and her teaching certificate.
6. My sister and I sub at the same school, the high school we graduated from, and the kids are always saying, "I just had your sister!"
7. My sister and I love Pirates of the Caribbean, but she's the bigger Johnny Depp/Captain Jack Sparrow fan and I'm the Will Turner fan.
8. My sister loves the Marines and always says she wants to marry one.
9. My sister loves dogs and plays with our friends three Westies a lot (our dog died last June).
10. My sister loves Brad Paisley and just went to his concert at the end of May and bought his new cd on Tuesday.
11. My sister likes to tell people that I like to talk in an English accent . . . and I like to tell them the things she says because she's blonde!
12. My sister is really good at knitting (and started out almost perfect!), but hates doing it.
13. My sister is my dearest friend, even though we fight sometimes! I love you, Trisha!
You cheated.

What a wonerful tribute to your sister. I have two sisters, one older and one younger, and we used to fight a lot too. Great TT. Happy Thursday!

Pickel said...

This isn't about the 13 but I love Harry Potter, House, and a bunch of other things on your site as well. Much in common...:)

Miss Paula said...

Okay Lady Jane, now what do I do for week #2???

Carrie said...

That was one of the sweetest lists, ever! I might even have to steal your idea! Fun reading! (I bet your sister is proud to have you as her sister too!)

Thanks for visiting my T13!

Lady Jane said...

Thank you all for visiting! I have a great sister (even though we do fight!). :)

And I am always glad to find people who love House, HP, etc.

Miss Paula, there are so many things you can do! Favorite Movies, Books, Songs, Bible Verses, Foods, Where you have lived, etc. :)

Dorothy said...

I was reading your bio...what a lovely way to present yourself. I, by the way, am 5'11 and 3/4, or thereabouts, I'm shrinking with age of course.
I also lovet he Pirates of the Caribbean.
That was a nice tribute to your sister.

Lady Jane said...

Thank you, Dorothy, for visiting and for the compliments! And always nice to "meet" another tall lady! :)

Cat is my copilot said...

What a beautiful tribute to your sister, and to beloved sisters everywhere. My sis and I are nearly ten years apart and we too once worked together, and I miss that. But, she's moving to my neck of the woods next year and I cannot wait. :)

I love this! Makes me miss my sister! Guess I'll give her a call this afternoon. :o)

Christine d'Abo said...

Your sister sounds wonderful! It's great to be that close to each other. :)

Jane said...

I think you and your sister love each other very much!
Great T13. Thanks for stopping by mine too!

Nancy the Romancechick said...

Great list! You and your sister must be very close. I was close to mine, too, but she died about 17 years ago and I miss her. Hug your sister!!

That Blue Girl said...

What a sweet tribute. As kids my sister and I got along, then hated each other, and now as adults we get along again.

I hope she reads this list!

Thanks for checking out my 13 embarrassing songs. Have a great weekend!

That Blue Girl said...

(by SHE-I mean I hope your sister reads YOUR list) :-)

Mymsie said...

Your list a great tribute, and I enjoyed the font and header too.
Thanks for sharing & visiting,

Gaby said...

Great tribute!!! Thanks for stopping by my post. We are going to Morro Bay, CA for the whole week (July 2nd - July 8th). I can't wait!

Rowena said...

Wow, what a great list, I'm very close with my sister and I am totally going to steal this idea, if that's okay! =)

You and your sister sound like you have a great bond and that's just great!

Happy belated TT!

Lady Penguin said...

Sweet list! Sisters are special.

Callista said...

Great idea! Beautifully written.

Stephanie Secrest said...

What a beautiful list! I don't have a sister--I'm an only child--so I'm a little jealous. :)

Thanks for stopping by my TT, BTW!

Lady Jane said...

It is fun to have a little sister! Thank you all for stopping by! Feel free to use the idea. :)

Where can I get a sister? I only have two brothers...
