My brother and sister came to visit me this weekend. They are in college in the area and came for the weekend to be spoiled by their older sister. The weekend was spent eating good food, creating a Twitter account for my brother, updating my iTunes to get my old self “up on the times” with the “jams of the summer,” watching all of season 2 of “Parks and Recreation” (24 episodes to be exact), and then some shopping with my sister. It’s really nice having them around. Those are all very necessary sibling bonding activities.
We visited some thrift stores. It was more exploring than buying though. It’s about the hunt, right? You can’t get the perfect treasure everytime…
… unlike Target where you always find too many treasures. In this case, Dolce Vita for Target wedges.
This was our dinner. Delicious.
There’s nothing like a sister shopping trip.
