Nugget love.

My little sis, aka the Little Nugget (or Nuggie), put one of the most fabulous things on my Facebook wall the other day:

It's the trailer for Teen Witch (1989), one of my (and her) most favorite movies of all time, made famous by countless late-night showings on Disney channel and the like. It's a coming of age tale where a scorned teenager named Louise (Fast Fact: Louise is played by Robyn Lively, older sister of Gossip Girl star Blake Lively) learns that she is a witch and uses her powers to seduce the sexy most popular guy in school. It's rife with important life lessons, 1980's-era fabulosity, drama and comedy. All the characters (especially Zelda Rubenstein, who plays the older wiser witch mentor, R.I.P.) are fabulous. Fast forward to the 1:20 mark to see Louise's sidekick get into a rap battle. Pure brilliance. I highly recommend you watch it. It really is a must-see.

However, what I really want to discuss today is how stinking awesome the Little Nugget is. See picture at right: kindred Spirits much? She's 5 years younger than me and already badass beyond her years. I've suspected for a while now that she could exceed me in style and wit anyday now. Nuts. Although, since we aren't there yet, I still believe (perhaps mistakenly) she learns a lot of good tricks from me.

She's a freshman at TCU, so I get to run into her sometimes here in the metroplex. I offer her a comfy couch and laundry machines...hot comodity for any dorm dweller. She offers care to the Prince and a shopping buddy. In addition to being my only sibling, the Nugget is one of the few who can rival my knowledge of worthless celebrity gossip, eye for sparkly things and general appreciation for genius (take, Teen Witch, for example). She's one of the best sounding boards when it comes to getting the chaos that is my brain out into the world. Here's a throwback shot of me giving her a makeover. Yes there is a caboodle in there. Heart this one. Just last week a person at a restuarant asked if we were twins. We've gotten that before. She's just to the age where she wants to look a couple years beyond 18. I'm to the point where I want to look less like an 18 year old and more like a grownup, but it still feels nice. Not to mention the fact that she's good looking. Compliments received by all I think. The weird part of it is that we look much more like each other than either of our parents. Wherever they picked us up, they must've gotten a 2 for 1 deal.

Anyway, the Nugget is one of my favorite people in my life. Occasionally she doesn't think I can offer her any wisdom, but believe you me, I made all of the college-era mistakes in the book. Sometimes it takes some blunders to learn, so I get immense giggles out of her mishaps. But, I'm never too far away to offer a lunch date and Forever 21 expedition to make it all better. Love her. Full of love for everyone this week.
