I've decided to start a new feature on my blog called, "Sister Saturdays." I had the idea a couple of months ago and didn't get around to following through on it yet. But since a new generation of sisters will be born when Erica's little sister arrives this coming Thursday (Lord willing), I thought it would be a good time to start. Sometimes I'll share sister stories and other times I'll just post pictures. Hopefully it will be fun for everyone and a good way to chronicle one of my favorite relationships in my life.
Last Saturday, Jeanette and I continued our sister tradition of getting pedicures together in the days prior to her giving birth. When we did it in 2008, I think I treated her, but this time she had some "mad money" she wanted to use. Both times we had fun getting pampered while spending time together chatting. And there was laughter involved, which is a pretty normal occurance for us!
These sweet little shoes are going to belong to the new sisters later this week. I had heard of some pricey shoes for girls called "Twinkletoes" and went in search of some knock-offs at Target. Everyone's favorite big-box store came through and even had some similar shoes for newborns. And yes, the little ones came without laces, but I will be adding some ribbons so they don't fall off little sister's feet when she is going home from the hospital! I'm planning to give Erica her shoes on the day she goes to the hospital to meet her little sister and am going to let her bring the little shoes to her sister as a present. Stay tuned for more pics!
