? # 21 From My Sister’s Jar – A Day of FUN!

January 23, 2009

Yes, it’s been almost a year since I started pulling questions from My Sister’s Jar.  And yes, I’m only on 21… sad but true.  For posterity, I dusted off the jar and pulled one out for today.

If you dedicated an entire day to “fun,” what would you do?


It would definitely be a “girls day out” with either my sister or a close friend.  It would start with a pedicure (hot pink of course, with bling bling) while sipping Starbucks.  Then we would go for a late breakfast at Paradise Bakery, but not so late that we miss the breakfast menu.  I hate it when that happens.  They have the best breaky foods… quiche and fruit and croissants with ham and cream cheese.  Next, we would take in a girly flick at the new Harkins by our house.  That theater is beautiful!  After laughing and crying and laughing and crying during the movie, we would head off for a bit of purse and/or jewelry shopping at Steinmart.  I love that store.  It’s the mother ship of bling bling and fancy shmancy purses.  Obviously the original home of my cute orange purse with the leather circles. 


Next is a hard one, because I would want to spend a couple hours in a ultra-fabulous scrapbooking store picking out a cute acrylic album and all the ribbons, paper, buttons and cha-ching that match.  However, our fabuloso store closed.  I need to research the current stores to see if I can find a suitable replacement.  My sister and I did just do a run on Scrapbooks, Etc. in Mesa, but they just don’t display stuff that makes you drool and SPEND.  Anyway, the evening would be wrapped up with take-out from PF Chang’s and a pajama clad night of scrapping at home with Harry Connick Jr. music serenading us into creativity and frivolity.


Any takers???

Congratulations, to my athlete sister, Christy!

Here we are at the PF Chang’s marathon in Phoenix, AZ on January 18, 2009, Christy’s sister, Christy’s mom, Christy, and Christy’s niece.  She rocked the house, baby.  This was her first half marathon and she trained for 4 months.  In snow and sleet and rain and horrible Vancouver, WA weather.  She basically kept at 16 minute mile walking pace for more than three hours…. which is really fast for those of us who aren’t training.

I’m so proud of her!  She was never an athlete growing up, like our brother and yours truly.  She was a cheerleader, and as all athletes know, cheerleaders aren’t athletes.  (Don’t write me hate mail… we all know there is some athletic ability needed for jumping up and down.)  When Christy was filling out her marathon application, the bottom line said “signature of athlete”.  We laughed and told her to cross it out and write cheerleader.  he he he.

Anyway, she’s one up on me.  I’ve not even thought of doing a marathon.  I think I’ve mentioned my aversion to running on my blog before.  I don’t really get it.  Unless you’re being chased.  Why run when you can jazzercize???  (totally joking, ok!)

Christy is here in sunny AZ with her husband, Big Sexy, for the marathon and for her birthday tomorrow!  Yeah!  It’s party time!  We have BIG plans on hitting the scrapbooking store in Mesa that stocks all of Heidi Swapp’s goodies.  Whooo HOooo!

Way to go, baby Chrissy!  You’re the bomb, baby.
