My friend got this on clearance at Lowe's with no tag. Could it be a Hoya? Stems remind me of one but leaves are different than what I know...she says they are thick leaves.

It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Your plant is interesting. I found a Hoya obovata Silver Spot, however, it does not have that... the pointy bit at the end of the leaf (what is the correct botanical term for 'pointy bit'??)
Hope someone chimes in soon with the correct answer.

Lucky you, Ronnie. I saw that one at Lowes a couple of years ago, didn't take it and have been waiting for it to come back ever since. I'll have to make the rounds.

They are easy to root. Since you helped your friend to identify the plant, maybe your friend will let you have a few cuttings? Thumbs up

Yes, Hoya (Hoya curtisii) A pretty Hoya that never seemed to live very long under my care. Sighing!
