More Than A Pretty Face &

I had no idea it was Sisters’ Day this past Sunday! I was on my work week and woke up to see this mention on Instagram & A Happy Sisters’ Day message.

Sisters' Day Tribute


Of course, I had to post on my own TL with a note of my own 🙂

Sisters' Day Instagram

I adored Hope’s post Monday – “The Strength of My Sisters” & I took the lead from her, just a few days late.


Sisters’ day is simply a day to show appreciation for your sister. I’ve never heard of this! Where has it been all my life!!! We all celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but how appropriate is it to celebrate our siblings & in this case, specifically sisters!

So why the title?

More Than A Pretty Face

Everyone is always talking about how pretty the little one is.  OH, you disagree??? GIRL STOP!!! 😉

I chose to talk about how amazingly beautiful she is as a person on the inside and out. Well, at least, this is how I see her!

More Than A Pretty Face & - Rx Fitness Lady

SN – We get a proclamation for everything in the Baptist church! So here we go!

WHERE AS: Rx Fitness Lady is 4 years older than  her little sister but most times feels  like the little sister. Let’s just call her BING because she always has an answer for my million questions!

WHERE AS: Rx Fitness Lady believes Amber J chose SSU for undergrad to be in the same city as her big sister in professional school (she earned that nickname there)…she loves her QT with me 🙂

WHERE AS: while she was there, she left her campus regularly to clean the bathrooms at her sister’s condo because her sister doesn’t clean up good 🙂

WHERE AS: she joined the DST sisterhood (line name – Lifetime) while on the campus & completed the triangle, Delta Rho, Eta, Delta Nu >>> Albany State (Mother), FVSU (yours truly), SSU (Amber)

WHERE AS: the young one moved back home to Macon when she graduated to be with the rest of the family & be a local personality & work tirelessly in the community (in a host of organizations dedicated to public service)serving a city she adores

More Than A Pretty Face &

WHERE AS, everywhere she goes people love her; church, kids, elderly, public figures, etc. Amber Wamber (affectionately called this by our Auntie) is gifted at drawing people in (including MY FREAKING GOD DAUGHTER)

More Than A Pretty Face - Vacation Bible School

Yeah, I didn’t mention in my vacation post, but she assisted me with teaching VBS!

WHERE AS: she is the busiest person EVER but is always supportive! You don’t believe it, she has 35 approved comments on this blog! HOLLA!

SN – While grabbing that bit of info, I discovered, I missed my 100th post! It just happened to be one of the best! I went to Girl Power Camp & several of the girls left me comments, you should go check it out HERE! It totally made my weekend. 

WHERE AS: She makes a million names for me on a regular, all of which are called in loving affection

  • Joi – JEEZZYYY
  • this list goes on and on

WHERE AS: She initiates “I Love You(s)” in our family regularly

WHERE AS: we know, we know, she is not our little jester (our = most of my friends), however, we appreciate her comedy & always making us laugh, not just giggle, I mean hold your stomach, you are off your rockers kinda funny!

WHERE AS: Baby girl touches up my hair after I’ve done so many workouts

WHERE AS: she irons my clothes when I’m in a hurry even though 95% of the time, I don’t return the favor

WHERE AS: she is more than just a pretty face, a mentor in the community, problem solver, and she’s the best little sister to me…

NOW, THEREFORE I, Joi, Editor @ Rx Fitness Lady, & on behalf of the readers of this blog, hereby proclaim August 7, 2013

Amber Day - Rx Fitness Lady

On & encourage all readers to join in and help me celebrate my baby sister whom I love dearly!


*end of Proclamation*

Good thing I don’t need the mayor’s or county commissioner’s signature to make this proclamation official! If I did, guess who could hit them up from the cell and get it taken care of?


Now, let’s see how long it takes her to discover this.

Tee hee, she is laying in the bed watching TV & I’m sitting on the sofa next to her as I type this & She 😉 translator – you don’t even know it

Rx Fitness Lady wants to know…

  • How close are you and your sister/brother? If you are an only child, do you want to duplicate that in your own household or have multiple children?
  • Did you peep all the different names she has?
  • Do your family members read/comment on your blog?
  • Do you all get proclamations for special days at church?

  1. OMG This was soooo awesome! Yay! It’s AMBER DAY! Amazing tribute. And very timely…I say we recognize National Sister’s Week. Amber is definitely beautiful both inside and out. You ladies are hilarious with all the nick names. Love it!!! I LOL’d at the baptist church proclamation. Although I’m not Baptist, I’ve been in Baptist services and heard several proclamations.
    I’m so glad you interpreted the UOENO. I actually guessed it by default. I was spending way to much time trying to figure it out, so I just said the letters like I was reading a word…
    How is that for a sly fly…you were “bigging up” baby sis right nest to her and she had no clue. Surprise!
    Thoroughly enjoyed this post!!!!
    Hope recently posted…The Strength of My SistersMy Profile

    • Thanks Hope! That interpretation was just for you 🙂 It’s a popular song right now, but I figured some ppl wouldn’t know it. I used it anyway, cause I love it! Girl we have proclamations seriously for EVERYTHING!

  2. Awww…!! 🙂 You guys are absolutely adorable! You’re right…she’s not just a pretty face! ! Yes, she does act like the older sister. I mean really Joi…not returning the favor by ironing her clothes! What kind of big sister are you…oh right, the typical one…LOL! But seriously, you guys remind me of me and my sisters…I love those gals!! I think it’s so sad when sisters can’t get along…such a waste! 🙁 My family is hilarious…they tell me they read my blog, but don’t comment…those goofy people, hahaha! IKR…I had never heard of “Sister’s Day” either…who knew! With all that being said…please tell your sister I’m wishing her a “Happy Amber Day” ! Thanks for linking up…have a lovely rest of your week darlin’! 🙂

    • Thanks Kim! I have a hard time with my friends, bit my mother and sister are very consistent. People don’t get it.

  3. I know about those proclamations. Great post about your sweet little sister. She’s a trailblazer like you. That’s awesome. My sister and I were close growing up but the age gap of 5 years caused some missteps along the way. We are soooo different. But we love and support each other whenever we can. Our sons are crazy about each other and I appreciate that. My family reads my blog but I’ve only gotten two comments.

    Congrats on the 100th post! You said you wouldn’t be far behind me. If you recall, I missed my 100th post too until after it passed.

  4. Happy Amber Day to you! I’ll check back to see her reaction. Yes, my mom and dad read my blog. I think my sisters may read it sometimes. My mom used to be my only commenter until I got smart and joined SITS! I have two sisters and two brothers and I feel closest to my older sister. I could definitely write a post about her.
    Tamara recently posted…Feeling The August Things.My Profile

    • She was with me all day, a very busy day & I thought she had read it bc she was doing all the stuff in the post, but she hadn’t.

  5. Me and my sister are almost five years a part. We are amazingly different but she is still my bestie!

    Amber sounds truly wonderful and amazing! You are lucky to have such a blessing in your life!Happy Amber day!

  6. Awww this post is too sweet. She sounds like an awesome gal. I didn’t think there was anyone busier than Jeeezzzy. I like the proclamation. Let’s hear it for the Southern Baptists and our proclamations, endless committee meetings, pot lucks, church socials, and voting ON EVERYTHING.

  7. I love this!! Jeeezzzyyyyyyy LOL! Amber seems super down to earth, sweet and fun. You can see the love pouring right out of this post! I loved the pic on IG! I’m reeled your God daughter in huh? cute! I love that you stay dedicating posts to family members!!

    p.s. don’t nobody from my family read my blog except for the occasional hubby comment 🙂

  8. I LOVED your creativity for this post!Happy Amber day! It is so awesome to have a relationship like this with your sister – you are two very lucky girls. I have one sister; she is younger, and has cerebral palsy with cognitive challenges so it is a very different kind of sister relationship. My brother lives thousands of miles away, but he was my hero when I was younger and it always feels good to connect with him (and my sis in law). I hope my kids all grow up to have tight sibling relationships!
    Leah Davidson recently posted…Pour Your Heart Out: The Worst and Best Day of My LifeMy Profile

    • I understand that too Leah! I shared my protigees blog here back in May. She has cerebral palsy . I’ll have to send it to you.I’m on my phone right now 🙂

  9. This is sooo humbling! I love you Joi! You inspire me everyday. Thank you for appreciating the small things and showing me how to be an amazing member of all of the many families that I volunteer to be a part of.

  10. I’ve never heard of sister’s day. I suppose I should send my sister a message, shouldn’t I? I have a brother 5 years older and a sister (step-sister, really) about 18 months older. My brother and I were never super close primarily because we have very little in common. He’s the athletic one, and I most definitely am NOT. About two years ago his wife told him she wanted a divorce, and that whole process has brought us much closer. It’s sad that it took such a horrible event to do it, but I’m grateful to be closer to him now. I’d say that my sister and I are fairly close, considering we drop the “step” in referring to each other. We’re also pretty different, but I know I can talk to her if I need advice or just someone to vent to. She’s raising two of the most amazing kids, and my oldest LOVES visiting her.

    Now, after that long story…about YOUR sister. I think both of you are absolutely beautiful. It looks like you have a fantastic relationship…and you are both very active in your communities. Just the fact that you wrote such a fantastic post shows that you have a great relationship, and I bet your mother and father are extremely proud of both of you. At the very least, they should get a kick out of all of those different nicknames!

    • Thanks so much for your sweet comment and sharing your relationships. Better late than never & I love that you are close to your step sister too.

  11. Joi, this was an awesome proclamation for your sister. I love my sister the same way. I am so blessed to have two awesome daughters. I really hope Amber enjoyed her day. I want you two to always stay close and put God at the head of your lives forever. I love you both soooooooo much!

    • Yes ma’am! I can’t imagine it any other way. We are blessed to have had you rear us to love and nurture that relationship. Many thanks for that!

  12. Awesome post Joi! I am sure that everything you stated is true and you hold her dear to your heart because we both agree that Amber J rocks!!! I love you Amber! Keep doing great things.

  13. This is ever so cool, Joi. Amber is brilliant and sure must be a blessing to have as a baby sis. I have one baby brother. He and other family members call me Ali-puss. Or sometimes Pusses. I blame my cousin Pat for starting that nickname trend way back when!
    Alison Hector recently posted…BlessingsMy Profile

  14. This was a such a lovely post! You and your sister are both AMAZING!! Every time i’m home i’m like Joi and Amber better be at church…or I won’t have a texting buddy…lol…

  15. Joi, This is such a lovely post to your sister Amber, I love how close your family are. I myself am one of two girls and I am the older sister, I couldn’t imagine my life without my amazing sister and similar to your mum, I hope that my 2 daughters grow a bond even stronger.

  16. Love it!! Your sister sounds a lot like my brother! He was always the “favorite” and everywhere he goes, from high school to now being a 40 year-old man with a wife and two kids, everyone adores him!!! It’s sickening. But I love him more then anything and wouldn’t have it any other way! Um, do you happen to know when it’s brothers day???:-)

  17. What’s not to love about your sister. Girl you need to clean your own bathroom and return the ironin’ favor – stop playin’!

    My brother is all the way on the other side of the US from me 🙁 but we are close. He doesn’t read my blog unless I send him the link and when I do his wife comments 😉

    I still call him Dirtbag – named him and our dog Dirtbag and Flea bag way along time ago when little boys and their dogs stink. He still answers me 😉

    • I truly hope so Andrea, no kidding around! I can’t explain it thoroughly on this blog. If I had your way with words, I could do a better job but I don’ this is what I wrote. I REALLY hope that you all do consider it. I can’t imagine what my life would have been like without that relationship! Oh, and did I mention, you and hubs should try and have another one 😉
