Sister Weekend



Well I had the most lovely weekend. My only regret is that it could not last forever.

My sister Jenn visited me! We have been best friends for the past 14 years. You may remember I was in her wedding six months or so ago...

Obviously, she is incredibly fabulous.



I felt a little plain in comparison, but don't feel sorry for me. I enjoyed basking in her glow!



We spent the weekend watching movies, drinking wine, pigging out on junk food, and of course, shopping!



Jenn has excellent taste. Here is a painting of a dog she bought her husband. (The dog face in the painting is the splitting image of their puppy Charlie).



I can't even begin to describe how wonderful it was to spend the weekend with Jenn. Even though we live four hours apart, we don't get to see each other that often. Jenn is usually extremely busy with her musicals (she is a professional singer and stage actress) and I am usually without transportation or money.



To say I had an awesome time with her is an understatement. It was the most spectacular weekend in history!

Nothing is more heart-warming than spending time with a close friend who has blossomed (and wilted, occasionally) with you over the years.

When we first became best friends, we were two 13-year-old girls who shared a passion for horror films, tennis, and the Spice Girls.

Today, we still feel like those two little girls from seventh grade, but we know we must have changed. (I hope, haha).

After all, we've been through millions of life-changing adventures together ( nerve-wracking dance recitals, boring summer jobs, ski trips, graduations, breakups, marriage etc.).



It's nice to have someone like that in my life. A friend who I know is never going to disappear on me.

I'm kind of depressed she went back home this afternoon. Because now I'm left alone, to continue on in my boring, dismal life.

So sad...

Wow these photos of you ladies are gorgeous! Your smile is captivating, Jennifer. Your friend looks like so much fun and what a beautiful dress she is wearing. That's awesome that she is a professional on stage in musicals! I did some musicals in high school and will always have a heart for it.

I think the last photo of you both is my favourite...you both look glamorous and gorgeous!

you 2 are so cute! glad you had a nice time together...siblings are so important!

Tabatha said...

It's great that you have a friend like her in your life & I can imagine how it felt when she left - but you had an awesome weekend together & I'm sure you'll see eachother again, soon! Maybe you could find a fix date - let's say in a few months - & agree on meeting then again, that way it might be easier to really find the time for hanging out a whole weekend. (Am I making sense here? *lol*)
She looks fabulous, but so do you - you're fierce :-)

I'm so glad that you had a great weekend! And I think you're BOTH fabulous... Sometimes I feel kind of bad for people who don't have sisters. There's something about having a sister that isn't quite like anything else in the world!

btd. said...

I have that kind of friend also, and ironically she lives 4 hours away also. I'm glad you had such a spectacular time with her. :)

Oh to Be a Muse said...

so i saw something that reminded me of you, and maybe you already saw this but thought i'd share anyway!
