Sisterly Love – A Sweet Night

My sister came into town last night. She has off today, so we are headed up to Providence to visit Brown (she is a senior in high school). We’re taking the Peter Pan bus (just $29.95 RT from NYC to Providence). I miss Julia! She was my maid of honor. She is also a vegetarian (going on 10 years probably – she hasn’t eaten meat since she was about 7).

I still love looking at my wedding photos. (Tarantino Photo -> Featured Events -> Maggie & Robert. If you want the password to my gallery just email me.)

Last night when she arrived it was pouring rain. We decided to have a simple dinner at the Whole Foods hot/cold bar and we followed it up with The Lite Choice. Always a favorite. When we got home we enjoyed some digestive tea (from Coco!) sweetened with NuNaturals stevia (Julia loved it – she will probably be buying it herself).

We got girly and painted our nails. I got a new Essie color: silver. I almost always paint my nails a dark shimmery brown/red soΒ this was a big change.

There were grapes.

And we watched an episode of Taboo, a show on National Geographic about weird things in different cultures (on Netflix streaming).

And then Julia conked out. She’s been working like crazy – the (amazingly smart) girl is taking 5 AP classes, she works at an organic farm, she volunteers, she’s in clubs, and she has a very busy social life.

Do you have siblings? What do you do together?

  1. Aw, sibling love is beautiful. I often wish I had a sister. Luckily I have a bunch of soul sisters in my life who feel like the same thing πŸ™‚

  2. aww looks like you had a great time πŸ™‚ i have one younger brother a couple years younger than me. we go to concerts, dinner, mini golf, just chatting. i have silver polish too but it’s my “winter” nails i’m rocking pumpkin colored right now πŸ™‚

  3. Very cute pictures!
    I love going to Whole Foods for an easy dinner but I always end up getting more food than I can eat (eyes bigger than stomach).

  4. Aw, I love the pictures of you two. I have a special place in my heart for sister relationships. My sister is younger than me, but by less than 2 years. We’ve had our on and off phases, but we really are so similar at our cores.

  5. I “like” you on FB! πŸ™‚

    I have a little sister, but she’s pretty much the mirror opposite of me in every possible way πŸ™ We don’t really talk. I always wished I had a sibling I could connect with.

  6. Aw you two are so cute!! And I still can’t get over your wedding dress, It’s stunning!
    I have two younger brothers. One is at the University of Texas but has a fancy shmancy fellowship and is working in DC right now. I wish I were closer to him, but he’s kind of the odd one in the family in the sense that he has no desire or need to be abnormally close to anyone in my family. My youngest brother is a junior in high school and also a genius. He spends most of his time working with his engineering time, but he’s a lot of fun to be around and we’re spending more time together now as he gets older, so that makes me happy πŸ™‚

  7. You look so beautiful together! I’m happy you have such a good relationship with your sister – this is something valuable!

    I’m an only child – the “onliest” only child you can imagine actually, I don’t even have cousins. (My Dad’s an only shild, too, and my Mom had a brother but he died several years ago and always lived far away from us, and he didn’t have a family himself.) Perhaps this is why I’m so self-sufficient, I’ve always played on my own.

  8. I have a younger brother. He’s 22. Being opposite sex, we don’t do too much together. We keep in contact mainly through Facebook messages and joke around when we’re together. We both have the same sense of humor, although I think he’s a lot funnier than I am. I have a ton of first cousins, a lot of which are girls too. We’re all very close.

    Taboo sounds interesting! We have Netflix streaming, I’ll have to look into it.

  9. You and your sister are so beautiful. And how fun to get to spend time together like that πŸ™‚

    My sister is 2 1/2 years younger than me and up until June we lived a couple of blocks from each other. That was so awesome and I miss her. She’s only an hour away now but it seems like 10. When we get together we like to walk and talk and we love to go shopping together.

    Have a great time with your little sis!
