My First Ever WWTK Wednesday


Today's blog post topic WWTK Wednesday is brought to you by these fantastic hosts Mamarazzi and CrazyMama

The topic for this week is all about that special friend(s) in your life.  I know she is expecting me to do this because she does know me better than most.  Crystal has an amazing blog and an amazing personality that shines through.  We have been Sis C and Sis K for, well, years....we are trying to remember when we exactly met.  And she is supposed to have the better memory!!

{1}I have found myself jealous/envious of this friend because... I tend to avoid being envious, but when it comes to Crystal I admit I am.  She is able to balance home schooling, college, family life, and housework.  She makes these incredible dinners that she just loves to torment me with through pictures.  I so wish I could cook like she does!

{2}I admire this one for her _________ (insert admirable quality) and tell us about them. 
Her intelligence, parenting skills, patience (yes, Crystal, you are more patient than you may ever realize), and her sometimes off the wall wit.  In many ways, she reminds me of one of my own sisters.  Despite how much negative may hit her at once, she still will find a way to remain focused and optimistic.

{3}I really love this blog friend because...
She knows all sides of me and is still willing to be like a sister to me.  She has seen me through my darkest times.  Not once did she ever judge me even though there were plenty of times I know she could have so easily.  We have been internet friends for so long, but she has proved to be the most true of any friends I've had in my life.  Although we are miles apart, sometimes we can just sense something is wrong and here comes the texts or the Facebook messages.  We also understand each other and know when we just need to simply vent about something.  We have laughed and cried together through so much.  We have so much in common yet have some opposites which makes this a beautiful friendship.

{4}I was stuck on a desert island I would want to be with this friend...Haha!!  We would live it up being stuck on a desert island.  Of course we would miss our husbands and kids, but we would probably make it out to be a vacation.  We are coastal girls who live for the ocean!  I'd make her do all the cooking though LOL  

{5}I think the best qualities in a friend are...Someone who looks at all points of views, listens to all sides, and gives the most honest advice even if it may touch a nerve at first.  Constant sugar coating, in my opinion, just means the friend is hiding what they really feel.  Crystal and I just seem to have this ability to give friendly, straight forward opinions.  We are opinionated people, but we also do know when to keep our opinions to ourselves...sometimes :) Another great quality is one who is true to your face AND behind your back.  I've had "friends" in my life say so many kind things to my face only to find out they said something bitter behind my back.  I have no worries with Crystal on that.  She knows if I am doing something stupid or being impulsive she can tell me in a mature way.


  1. You are very lucky to have a friend like Crystal and I'm sure she feels the same about you

  2. Crystal sounds like a fabulous friend. I love a friend that knows when to share her opinion and when to keep it to herself. Thanks for linking up! Congrats on your first time out.

  3. Thank you, Jo and Crazymamaof6....and really look forward to more WWTK!
