She wasn't feeling 100-percent this week, so Jordin Sparks
took it to the beach with what she considers the best medicine.
"Feeling a little under the weather," she Tweeted
on Monday. "Nothing is better when you feel like that than being w/ my mom & my pup."
The singer, wearing a candy-striped bikini, lounged under the sun with her mom Jodi Sparks and her dog Minnie.
"Minnie is so happy to be w/ me that she's smiling from ear to ear!" Sparks wrote
A little rest and relaxation (plus some vitamin D) seemed to do Sparks some good. She was feeling well enough to give Minnie a big kiss on the sand.
