I have a twin. fyi | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

I have a twin. fyi

So here's a late mention- my TWIN brother came home from his LDS mission! He served in Knoxville Tennessee and is the cutest thing ever. Some fun facts about our twinness:
+He is about a foot taller than me
+He is definitely the smart twin.
+We used to tell people that twins had two belly buttons for fetal feeding in the womb. and they believed us.
+I was in love with his best friend my freshman year so I begged Craig to invite him over 24/7. and he did.
+In Highschool in order to have a cell phone, we had to have a 3.5 GPA and I was a solid 3.0-3.2 student so when report cards would come, Craig would keep his mouth shut so the parents wouldn't take away my phone privileges. He was always a 4.0 student. that guy.
+Also in HS, I had a tendency to come home past curfew and he would sneak me inside. awh.
+Since he has come home, he has been a social magnet. Everyone loves him.
+Our deep conversations are referred to as "twin talks". 
+I have lost my identity as Candace and am now referred to as "the twins" at all times by parents and sometimes sibs. Just like the good ole' days.

Fun reminder:
Boy and girl twins cannot be identical. You would not believe how many people ask us that after we say we're twins. We are fraternal. In order to be identical you have to be the same sex. I've said enough. If you'd like to know the biology of it, google mitoses and get your mind blown.

  3. That sounds like so much fun! My husband has twin brothers. They are 13 and completely opposite. Drive each other nuts. But have some same tendencies. It is fun and funny to watch those two!

  4. Awww! That is super cute and fun!

    I always thought it would be fun to have a twin. My college roommate thought that if anyone needed a twin it was me, so I could have someone to talk to all the time (I'm a verbal processor and a talker). Lol.

  7. Hurray for returning with honor! You two are adorable and I just love that he helped you keep your cell phone and sneaked you in after you were late. I really could have used a twin back then! :)
