This past week a group of us had dinner at a nice restaurant called RaSushi to celebrate my sissy's promotion with her job. All of her close friends, co-workers, and managers came together to send her off. It had to be at least 40 of us "photo-bombing" each others potential instagram pics and being silly. Don't let the outfit fool you I know how to have a good ol' time! Speaking of which, are we liking my look for dinner? I'm H&M'd out! Minus the bag and shoes, ha!
If you stingers follow me on Instagram you know I've been stalking those Tom Ford strappy heels for months! So since then I've been on a hunt for a pair of lookalikes, because I mean let's be real ain't nobody got time for that! You can only imagine how filled with joy I was when I got my hands on a pair of these. I almost started break dancing right on the sales floor until I remembered I was in public. Hmm, I think I found my current obsession in my closet.
An Open Letter To My Sissy:
So while I'm typing this I'm trying my best not to get too emotional because let's face it I cry at just about everything. Since we were little I looked up to you. You were the person I could run to when so called friends treated me poorly and turned my their back on me. When "best friends came and left you were the one still in my corner never leaving my side. Gosh, I went through so many stages in my life where I didn't know who I was and felt like a total outcast. You loved me through it all and never looked down on me or turned your back, you were my best friend. Decisions I made that you may have not agreed with, when I came crying back instead of telling me I told you so you gave me your shoulder to cry on. You are the most trustworthy person I know on this earth. I can tell you my most deepest darkest secret and you will literally take it to your grave. You are never the one to speak badly of anyone or tear anyone down. You truly treat others the way you would want to be treated. You are a women of class and charisma. You look into the inner rather than the outer appearance of others. You believe in the good of people and don't leave room for judgement. You have a rare beauty sis that not all of us women can obtain. Your beauty comes from within. You don't need to rely on vanity and that's when you're the most beautiful. Now sissy you're a little tough but what can I say you are our mother's twin. You tell me the honest living truth even when I don't want to hear it. But sometimes that's exactly what I need. Lord knows you've never been cut out to be my "yes man." Ha! One of us had to be the strong one to hold it all together when everything goes wrong. You never show a sign of defeat and I'm not sure if you do that for me but it does gives me a sense of comfortability to think that everything is going to be ok. You have to be the most smartest, hardworking, driven person I know. When you start something you don't quit until you finish. Take your job for example, you started from the bottom and worked your way up to the top. Within 5 years you accomplished so much, gained so much growth and you're still going! I can definitely look to you for example. Gosh, I just hope I can be at least half the women you are when I turn 23. To my favorite Starbucks drinking valley girl congratulations once again on your promotion. I'm so proud of you, no one deserved it more than you sissy. I know it's only bigger and better opportunities for you at this point.
Your little sissy B.
