the weekend

so obviously attempting to blog again has not been succesful.

i feel like i have so much that i missed in the gaps of not blogging that it is stressing me out feeling like i need to go over everything. but i am just gonna ignore all of that that for now and tell you about our fun weekend.

on friday my sister gina and her kids sam (6) and lola (3) came for an impromptu visit from ontario!

we went shopping and out for dinner - super good times.

but even more fun happened after dinner. we went over to my sister sara's beautiful house and played beauty shop. my favorite.

we had purchased a few makeup items we wanted to try out and sara wanted to try some new hairstyles on gina and i. 

 so girly and so much fun. 

i haven't laughed so hard in the longest time. i couldn't breathe at times. no sound came out while i was laughing.

it was that funny.

trying to take pictures of each other all glammed up was hilarious. we could not for the life of us keep a straight face but we both wanted pictures of how pretty our hair turned out.

sara you are a hair genius. i am so bad at doing hair that all i ever do is put it in a bun. 

i am the bun lady. 

so thank you sara for giving us pretty hair for our at home movie night, ha!

we pulled it together (barely) to snap these pictures as we lovingly gazed into each others eyes.
i had to think about sad puppies. gina was thinking about happy puppies.

my hair was so lovely. pictures never quite do justice. sara you need to come over every morning and do my hair.

 this makes me laugh hard - keep it together gina

where is sara you ask?

oh she took her make up off and forbid any pictures.

she is so glamorous she does not need photographic evidence of her beauty.

gina and i take these precious moments of glamor seriously.

where were the kids you ask?

they were having a "camp in" at gramas.

they each got a couch in the sun room for their first sleep over all together. my heart exploded.
