...girls getaway...

j and i had a little argument awhile back. what surfaced was that i was not taking care of myself and it was no one's fault but my own. i realized i needed some 'me' time. ...a little break. my mind started racing and i knew my weekend away would include the following: my sister [if california weren't so far, it would have included both my sisters!], good food, thrifting and pampering. total success. we had such an amazing time together. we also turned around a lot...we're horrible with directions...
..she brought some of her amazing s'more bars and i ate way too many.
..we ate some amazing vegetarian panini's & sweet potato fries at a little cafe on the canal.
..i got a mini pedicure while i waited for my's getting rather tricky to reach those toes over this belly.
..we visited our favorite creamery in fairport.
..squeezed in some shopping.
..we watched a couple episodes of downtown abbey and both got hooked.
..found a little donut shop in fairport.
..we stopped at an amazing barn sale.
..i found a sweet little vintage crib & doll for my ladycakes! and a couple other goodies.
..i am so blessed to have this girl in my life. we have so many shared memories over the years. we always laugh uncontrollably when we're together. i can share the deepest parts of my heart and she loves me no matter what. plus she knows good music...the soundtrack for the weekend included ghoti hook [ seriously, i just had to sing along just looking it up for you], good charlotte, alanis morissette, good stuff i tell you. plus you should hear us hit those harmonies... ;) love you seester.

more pictures here...including an amazing picture of us singing in the car...


  1. let's just place the blame on getting lost where it really belongs: waze. she failed us. many times. not speaking up soon enough. not speaking at all...
    they liked you better at the spa - i never got a fancy water!!
    can't get over the cuteness of the doll & crib you got for fabs.
    and let's not forgot our theme word of the weekend: moseley!

    i'm so needing another girls getaway after my rough night with weebi last night...let's go now.
