Sister Sleepover

I almost forgot, it has been a whole week since my sister slept over….and I swear I am still catching up on sleep. That child stays up late and gets up early, I am not sure how she does it!

After a day full of eating Mom’s awesome Thanksgiving dinner (brownie points) I figured letting my sister stay over and watching movies was a perfect way to relax and unwind, maybe call it an early night. First we watched Monsters, Inc., a favorite of ours and then Monsters Vs. Aliens, which I never saw but was actually pretty good. Then I figured bedtime, but she was still wide awake so we watched Kung Fu Panda and then I fell asleep. Don’t worry I when I woke up and she was eating Rollos and Nerds. Whoops! Should have known to hide the candy!


I did use her to my advantage while I had her and we made snickerdoodle cookies. I need to borrow her more often for other baking days. Perfect little helper….although she somehow makes a mess while helping, still figuring that part out.

Being the best big sister ever, I promised her Menchies for breakfast. Menchies didn’t open til 11am so we ended up having a hearty bowl of cereal since she was up at 6:30am (why do kids get up so early). Did some shopping and then headed to menchies for an early lunch.

If you are wondering what was in her mix this time, Chocolate cherry cordial and vanilla swirled yogurt and Pumpkin and pecan praline swirled yogurt, topped with reeses, coconut, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, white chocolate chips, m&ms, gummy worms, gummy bears, peaches, strawberries, cherries, blackberries, mandarin oranges, pineapples, chocolate syrup, marshmallow syrup, caramel sauce and butter scotch sauce. I am not sure how she could stomach that combination but she loved it and finished the whole bowl (which of course was filled to the top).

I am probably the only one with a little sister 20 years younger than me but what do you do for fun with your siblings?

Do you have an even weirder Menchies combination?

  1. Haha. That sounds exactly like what my sister and I would do and we’re both adults!! 🙂

    Colin gets up every day at 7:00. Never fails. Doesn’t matter if he went to bed at 8:00 or midnight, once the clock strikes 7 he’s ready to go for the day. I don’t get it!!

  2. My sister and I don’t get along if we spend too much time together. So we limit our time together into small increments, usually with other people around to balance out the personalities. Don’t get me wrong, I love her dearly, and occasionally she surprises me, but we usually struggle to do much together.

    I love menchies, but that combination would not work for me. lol. I like things simple! One twist flavor is plenty for me.

  3. My brother and I do nothing but cook and eat when we’re together! Wait, that’s not completely true, as we also tend to drink a fair amount of beer, wine and port.

  4. Sounds like you two had a ton of fun! Wow, she is quite the early bird! My sister and I go shopping… that’s definitely a little predictable. At one point, we both lived together in Houston. I had had a hard day at work and went straight to the mall after wards for a little retail therapy. I look up from a sweater rack and see her standing on the other side! Haha, I didn’t even tell her I was going! She then mentioned her day at work was ridiculous… hrmmmm… sisters are great 🙂 Our youngest sister, Rachel, the one with downs & autism, LOVES movies, so we take her out to the movies when we are both in town!

  5. I have a sister 22 years younger than me!! She’s all the way in Hawaii though, so the best I can do is video chat with her. No menchie’s for that girl!! Haha
