Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving break came at the perfect time. School was beginning to get quite stressful with finals right around the corner, and I really missed my family a lot. This Thanksgiving, Allie and I flew up to my Grandma’s house in northern California and our parents met us there! Unfortunately for us, Emily spent her Thanksgiving with her husband’s family on Nantucket. We missed her lots and lots! But despite missing one sister, we still had a great time enjoying the company of our extended family, eating lots of yummy foods, and counting our blessings!

I hope each of you had a wonderful time with your families as well!


Initiation 2

Rah Rah for Kappa Kappa Gamma! My time as a pledge has ended and I’m officially an active member of Kappa Kappa Gamma!! Each one of the girls in my chapter is beautiful from the inside-out and I am grateful to be able to call them my sisters.

The initation events started on Friday evening, followed by a big sleepover, and then more events continued on Saturday morning.

Since Emily and Allie were both Kappas too, they both called me  (separately so I wouldn’t get any ideas) before I left for initiation to express their excitement, give me advice, and wish me luck. Emily even pretended to have a conversation with her husband so that I wouldn’t suspect what my two sneaky sisters had up their sleeves! I completely fell for their tricks.

On Saturday morning, I was woken up pretty early and led to a room to continue the initiation process. Inside the room, my two older sisters were waiting for me!! Emily had flown all the way from Nantucket and met Allie in LA. Then, they drove down to Malibu together to initiate me into our sorority. For those of you that know me, I am a crier…a good movie, a heartfelt card, or special moments like these always seem to get me. So needless to say, tears were swelling up in my eyes as soon as I saw them.

It’s moments like these that remind me how lucky I am to have these two as my older sisters.

Beverly Hills, what a thrill! Beverly Hills, what a thrill!

– Troop Beverly Hills

 As a child of the 80’s and 90’s, I grew up watching classic movies such as Troop Beverly Hills, Clueless, Pretty Woman, Beverly Hills 90210 and Beverly Hills Cop.  I always dreamed that I would one day live in Beverly Hills… mostly because I wanted to be an actress and that’s where actresses live, right?  Right.  Well, my dreams came true!  I live in Beverly Hills.  I know, I know… lucky duck.  Sometimes, I have to pinch myself.  Here are a few pictures I took on a walk around my neighborhood…
