Jess's bay area recruiting trip.

SISTER SLEDGE, pack your bags and move to the bay already.

So in the midst of all the crazy health stuff going on last week - my crazy, wonderful sister was in town. I tell ya, that girl is always there for me during tough stuff. She is probably the most easy going, open-minded person I know and was just an absolute delight to have in town for a whole week. I admire her ability to relax and just be and enjoy life. While I got the gene for being a stress ball, she definitely got the gene for being relaxed and able to go with the flow and I truly admire that about her. Plus, she showers me with presents!!! Yup, that's right, after a hard day at work one day, I came home and she had a couple of the cutest bowls waiting for me, along with some purple measuring cups and a cute Turquoise shirt because as she says, "Everyone needs a little turquoise in their lives :)."

Sadly, I was feeling kind of crappy the entire time she was here, but we still managed to squeeze a lot of fun in, here were some of the highlights;
**Making yummy dinners - curry chicken, coconut rice and dirty rice, **Jogging the dish, **Dinner at Sprout ** Hot Chocolate at Coupa ** Lazy movie nights ** Dinner at Cha Cha Cha with Loverboy and Delaney (It made my heart so happy to finally have someone from my family meet Joe) **Beers at the Monk's Kettle ** Happening upon the Pink Triangle parade through the mission **Anna K. Brunch with my lovely bay area girlfriends ** Getting new SMART Phones together (We did the BOGO deal on the droid and I'm now hooked on smart phones!)
