Sista Sistas in Palm Springs

This weekend, my sister and I took a much needed mini-vacay to celebrate her 21st birthday,

After a few long weeks, it was the perfect rest and relaxation time.

Friday evening, I picked her up from school 
and we stopped for {amazing} burgers and a gorgeous sunset 
and a gorgeous sunset 
before heading out to the desert.

When we arrived, I {well, the amazing resort employee} worked a sweet upgrade 
{thanks for the suggestion so long ago, Mark!}

Since we got in pretty late, we got into our pjs,
painted our nails,
and had dark chocolate while we watched a movie in bed.

The next morning, we picked up coffee at the local coffee shop at the resort
and then headed to the pool for the day.
It. was. awesome. {minus the incredible sunburn Carly got... sorry sis}

After a day of lounging at the pool, we took baths in our jacuzzi tub
before heading over to one of the yummy restaurants at the resort for chicken fajitas.
On the way, we met this sweet couple who swapped us photo for photo.

We {read: I} fell asleep to another movie classic.

Sunday morning, I enjoyed some time with Jesus
before we got ready to check out.
But not before taking some self portraits.

I dragged C to a {cute!} local coffee shop
and the farmers market
before heading out past the {thousands of} wind mills
to the {huge!} outlet center.
We each found a few fun outfits for great prices!

It was a wonderful weekend of relaxation, laughing, chatting, tanning, shopping and eating.
I love spending time with my sister
and it happens not often enough.
I'm so thankful we had these two nights together!

I love you sista! 
Again soon! :)
