Sisters.


You know what's fun?
Sisters.
You know what's even better?
Sisters who are best friends.
I'd consider her my bestie, but I feel inclined to say she might give you the eye-roll if you asked her (right, Marn?).

This past weekend, I got to spend a lot of time (though still not enough) with my sister and her husband, Andy.
We went shopping, ate a little Blue C Sushi, I tried mochi for the first time, and I even made my first-ever trip to Ikea.
I bought nothing, but Marnie and Andy filled their cart with lots of home essentials, including a bright-orange umbrella.
I'm telling you, it was a must.

They just moved into a house that is literally across the street from Green Lake in Seattle.
Saturday afternoon, we crossed Green Lake Way and took the 20-second walk down to the lake.
Had it not been freezing, I may have snagged a couple decent photos.
But hey, look at that sister of mine... is she cute or what?

Love you, sister. You too, brother Andy.
We're coming back to Seattle soon, we promise. xoxo

This makes me wish I had a sister. :( I got stuck with brothers. My brother has turned into a big jerk, my step brother is a super creep, and my half brother is only 8 years old. I'm so jealous that you have a sister that is also your best friend. It must be nice!

I have 2 sisters and could not imagine my life without them! One lives far away but I talk to her daily. The other is close and I see her everyday. They are the best! Also, I.LOVE.Ikea!! Best store ever!

I always wanted a sister, I'm lucky to have a great relationship with my brother, but I'm sure it's just not quite the same. (Adorable umbrella too!)

Sisters are pretty awesome, I hope that as mine gets older we can also get closer, it is kinda hard with the age difference (10 years)

Elisabeth @ Bella said...

My sister is also one of my best friends! So cute seeing you two together as well :) And I do love that orange umbrella!

Sidney said...

I love hanging out with my sister :) We live together now so occasionally we spend too much time together, but it's better than not having her around at all. You two look a lot alike too, just like me and my sister. It gets slightly annoying when people stop us and ask if we're sisters, or worse, twins. At least I know I'm cute! ;)

Allyssa said...

My sister is my best friend too. I don't know what I would do if my sister lived in another state. Wait, yes I do. I'd move in next door, haha!

Stephanie said...

Aw so sweet! That umbrella was a must, I totally agree. And I cannot believe you made it through Ikea without buying anything, I've never done that in my life. And I've been to Ikea at least 50 times. Yikes...

Rachel said...

Sisters are great! I have 5--one just visited yesterday with my brother and we got to see a movie and go swing dancing together.
We don't get to spend time together often now that we're busy, but isn't getting together with and spending time with grown-up siblings so much fun?

Y'all are precious...and I love that umbrella!

Julie{isCocoandCocoa} said...

I love having sister/best friend combos, too!

Julie said...

Sisters are the absolute best! Since we are kids, everyone think my sister and i are twins. You never spend enough time with family in my opinion :)
