Pepperdine University

My summer break came to a close and I recently made my move across the country to my new home for the next four years! I am now all moved in (thanks to a Pepperdine move-in crew that got everything out of our car and up three flights of stairs to my room in under 5 minutes). I have been through New Student Orientation and quite simply put…I am so in love with my school already! And my roommate too! We are two peas in a pod.

Everyone has been so genuinely nice; it is almost unreal. My favorite story from orientation is when my mom and I were getting coffees at the little coffee shop on campus…our barista handed us our drinks and said to my mom, “I want you to know that everyone at Pepperdine will take good care of her.” It was so heartfelt and sincere. He did not have to say that the way the President of the school would. He was only making our coffees. Needless to say, we both started tearing up.

I do believe without a shadow of a doubt that there is not a better school out there for me and I am so grateful for that.

Here are a few pictures of my new home, room, and roommate…

Nanny Diaries: Chipwiches

Homemade Chipwiches are hard to beat! Freshly baked cookies, with icecream in between…are you drooling yet? I am just thinking about them.

Curren was a very good helper…especially at helping me clean the beaters!

Nanny Diaries: The Shipwreck and Life-Saving Museum

Curren is always inclined to learn. He always asks questions the way every little kid does…and he remembers everything you teach him! And I do mean everything. So, this five year old is always begging me to take him to museums. (Sometimes even to see the same museum two days in a row!)

Today, we visited The Shipwreck and Life-Saving Museum. We learned about how islanders would risk their lives in order to save the shipwrecked sailors off of Nantucket’s shores. Curren knew more than I did and even taught me a few things for a change!
