A Day with the Sister

My sister, Bekah, is four years younger than me. She and I look somewhat alike - at least people say we do - but we also have pretty different personalities, so it's always lots of fun when we hang out together. There is never a dull moment and we usually learn about various things from each other. She keeps me up on cool music, (this weekend, after showing me a few songs, she asked, "Do you EVER listen to the radio?!" to which I responded, "Well, I listen to the Christian station and NPR and sometimes sports radio...") and she keeps me up on the latest fashions and make-up. Well, at least she tries. I'm kind of a lost cause. (-:

She and her new hubby live about an hour and a half from us, so we don't get to see them too terribly often. We have to plan for it. So, I planned a day to go down and hang with her! I got to tour the new dental office where she works, and then we just had a day of fun.

We checked out a few local shops, and went to her favorite consignment/antique furniture and knick knack store. I understand why she loves it, and if I had any money to spend, I would go broke in that place very quickly. Before we set out on our shopping spree, she shared some of her coolness with me:

We stopped at a coffee shop that some girls I went to college started, and we got some yummy cupcakes and warm drinks. Bekah learned quickly that a latte is not the same as a chai latte. That was an unfortunate error. But we loved our cupcakes!

I got a soy chai, which was pretty darn good itself, and a red velvet cupcake. nom nom nom.

I've had a bit of a cold lately, so my throat has been pretty painful. I'm really hoping to kick this thing soon. It kind of put a damper on our day of hanging out, but by dinnertime, my headache was gone, so I was able to enjoy that more. And, we met up with our boys, and my brother and his awesome wife!

After that we had to head back home. It was a quick trip, but lots of fun. I am definitely looking forward to us all living closer again one day. 

Happy Monday everyone! (-:

  2. Sisters are the best. Sounds like a fun weekend! (and I agree w/ the comment above)

  3. I know how you feel! My sister and her family live in Asia and they are here for 6 months. It is currently GO GO GO so we can soak up as much love as we can! You two look stylishly fabulous!

  4. What a beautiful family! Glad you were able to kick your headache and enjoy the day =D

  5. YAY that was the MOST FUN DAY EVER!! Haha I'm glad I have such an educated barista for a sister! Man those caffeine attacks.. ahaha! I wish you were our next door neighbors so we could party all the time! And spend all of our money at the rink! wahoo!! I love yoU!
