"Hey, sister, go sister, soul sister..."
(This is a picture from when I was alot thinner!)
Today I got to spend some much-needed quality time with my sister Marla...and the Boy, of course, who loved spending time with his Aunt Marla! We got pedicures, and were able to relax and chat while my sweet PJ was obliging enough to nap through almost all of it, and flirt sweetly with the girls from the salon when he was awake! Then we had a quick lunch and trip to Target before we called it an afternoon!
I can only hope that PJ and whatever child we might produce next are lucky enough to have a friend in each other like I have in my sister. Of course, as kids and teenagers, we didn't have alot to do with each other, mostly because of the 4 1/2 year age difference! But we have always been there for each other and as we both became adults, were able to find friendship beyond just being family! I enjoyed having her look up to me growing up, but truth be told, she did alot better then that- she's more successful, grown-up, and put-together then I could ever aspire to be! And, in being mostly grown up (me) and just about completely grown up (Marla) we don't always have time to just hang out. So, today was...nice! I spent time with my sister and son, my toes are pretty, and I went to Target.
That's pretty much all it takes to ring my bell!
The rest of my weekend will prove to be busy! Saturday will be filled with errands, and then on Sunday we will celebrate both Pete's 32nd birthday and my niece Sarah's (who, along with her sister Riley, has done modeling for a pretty popular bridal designer) First Holy Communion! So, with all of that to look forward to, I think it's just about time for me to get to sleep!
