Hello all– When my sister Lulu (more commonly known as Luanne) comes into to town we have more fun!! She and her Ted live in Kosovo (you may have to look it up on a map. I did.) and having her here 2 weeks left me jumping up and down excited.
So here is my Lulu Top Five. There’s no one more fun than that girl. She is the best!
#1. I have to say that my all time favorite thing to do with my sis is work together in the kitchen. Most nights, while she was here we’d chop and stir and talk our way through making dinner. We are “kitchen-twins”– I know just how she does things and we can really turn out fun food!
#4. From the time Lulu and I were old enough to save up an allowance, we’d make our lists and do our Christmas shopping together. We have a routine. Up early for pancakes, we sit in the restaurant, review our lists and map our our store route. We shop intrepidly with a lunch stop, of course, and when the stores close, we collapse for a well earned dinner–two bowls of Islands tortillas soup. Our goal is to finish Christmas shopping in one fun-filled , talk-a-thon day!
#5. And before she left, we managed a day, just the two of us, down to the beach. Blue skies, cute beach cottages, squawking sea gulls, a ride across the back bay on the ferry and, or course, our afternoon Balboa ice cream bar.
There’s no one like by sister, Lulu– kind and generous with an easy laugh and always happy to help with anything. I miss you girl, now that you’re back in Kosovo!! When will have some more days together?
