Sister, Sister

Before flying home for Thanksgiving,
I spent Friday night/Saturday with my sister in the city.
I always have the very best time
when it's just the two of us.

A look at my busy, productive, crazy-fun weekend:

After spending the day out and about with my best friend Mollie,
I chilled by myself at my sister's awesome apartment,
chowing down on gelato, sipping some pink lemonade, and reading some blogs!
It was a big-girl moment, guys.

On Saturday, we were up bright & early
to get some brunch at Chez Maman.

chips & guac

the sister's carne asada quesadillas.

salad + croque madame.

And if that wasn't enough of a food coma, 
we then paid a visit to...

Smitten Ice Cream,
which is a shack-like ice cream place
that serves up the best liquid nitrogen ice cream I've ever had.
I've never had liquid nitrogen ice cream before,
but I'm certain this was excellent :)
I had cinnamon apple spice with caramel syrup! Dee-lish.

Afterwards, we got our eyebrows done,
and then hit Anthropologie!
I'm loving all of these holiday displays,
it's a huge reason as to why this is my favorite time of the year.

And then I fell in love.
With these little ones above.
We volunteered for the SF ASPCA by "greeting" people outside of the Macy's window displays where these guys were hanging out [they get lots of play time and food/water, don't you worry!] and it took everything in me not to go adopt this puppy myself.
It was also wonderful to see people lighting up when they saw these fellas-
it just shows - a puppy is the answer to world peace!

That wasn't all.

After hanging with the cutie pies, we went and grabbed Starbucks,
then saw Pitch Perfect (hilarious! why can't I sing!),
then stopped by the new city Target (heaven!),
where I got lipstick, brie, crackers, and the new Glamour for my plane ride.
And then forgot the brie for the actual plane ride. Boo...

(Pause for a breath) and then we went back to my sister's apartment,
where I caught the Stanford/Oregon game on TV
SUCH an exciting, exhilarating, excellent game! (totally not biased!)
Then, after some spaghetti & meatballs,
I was on my shuttle to the airport to the plane through the night to my dad's car to home to bed where I currently am right now.

Happy Tuesday!
(and a big kiss & a thank you to my big sister who made the weekend so wonderful!)
