Kappa Kappa Gamma Formal

This past weekend, my sorority held another formal and I took the cutest dates (that’s right…the word dates is plural) in town: Natalie and Hannah!

Our evening started at the Malibu Pier, where we all gathered together to take pictures. Then, we went our separate ways in little groups to dinner. Natalie, Hannah, and I went to this delicious Italian restaurant called Tra di Noi. And finally, we met back at the buses that transported us to a restaurant in downtown Hollywood where we all danced the night away!

This was our final formal of the year and that means that it was the seniors’ last formal ever. I’m sure going to miss them lots and lots at the rest of our formals, especially my big and her sister! But, we had the best time making the most of their last formal.

Strawberry Donut [Muffins]

Donuts are one of my weaknesses. I love them way more than cookies and cake. And if there are some donuts nearby, it takes everything in me to fight against the urge to eat every last one of them. So, when I found a recipe for baked strawberry donuts, I was not going let this gem of a find go to waste. After Allie and I gathered our freshly picked strawberries, we went straight home to bake this yummy treat!

Sunday Funday

After one of the most delicious Sunday brunches, Allie and I headed over to Underwood Family Farms!

There is a little shop at the front of the farm with all of their homegrown fruits and vegetables that you can buy. Or if you would rather pick your own…you can do that too! We chose to pick our own because well, it is way more fun that way!

Before heading out to the fields, we stopped to say “hi” to lots of cute animals!

And then we began picking our own strawberries! Fresh fruit is one of my favorite things to eat. And I have become more appreciative of fresh food since coming to college. (At school, I swear they put sugar on or something on the fruit served.) So, I was so excited for our Sunday Funday adventure to pick the freshest of the fruit…straight from the farm! And, boy, were those strawberries yummy!
