BABY ADELAIDE IS HERE!

My twin sister had her bundle of joy! Her baby girl made her way into the world on August 12, 2018 at 5:08 AM. I was there for the birth, and I am so thankful that my sister & brother-in-law let me be apart of their special day.

Little Adelaide is just so beautiful & precious. I was able to spend the first week of her life with her, but sadly my 3-week stay in Southern California has come to an end. It’s time for me to go home, but I will be seeing her in October!

She is the very first grand-child on our side of the family,  so it’s a huge deal! My sister had such a good labor & delivery that I’m crossing my fingers that I follow in her footsteps, haha! Wouldn’t that be great? I am still in awe of her strength & her composure during the whole labor & delivery process. SHE IS A CHAMPION. Women are truly amazing!

I can’t believe in just under 4 months I’ll be welcoming my own child into the world. It hasn’t fully registered yet. I’m so anxious & nervous! Little Addie is such a sweet precious angel, that I know it’ll be worth all the pain & anxiety. Congratulations to my sister & brother-in-law, they made one gorgeous girl. I can’t wait to watch her grow!

 

celebrating my twin’s bachelorette party!

Hi everyone! Long time no talk….. I’ve been so so busy with school & homework. SO MUCH HOMEWORK.

This past weekend I went down to Ventura to celebrate my twin sister’s bachelorette party! It was a small gathering of just me, my twin, her best friend, and our little sister. A lot of her other friends couldn’t make it— which was okay! We had fun and relaxing weekend (not a traditional bachelorette party)

We stayed in the Crowne Plaza in downtown Ventura, it was a nice hotel. We decorated it with balloons, confetti, candy and gifts! So happy my sister was surprised and loved it.

On Saturday, we spent the whole day in Ojai, it was a gorgeous day! Ojai was having a celebration with vendors, music, and food. Apparently it was Ojai Day and we didn’t even know! It ended up being perfect. The local library was having a book sale, with books ranging from 0.50-2.00, WHAT A STEAL. So of course we had to pick up some books.

Sunday, we drove to Santa Barbara for brunch. We went to a restaurant called Finch & Fork. I got the short ribs & sweet potato hash…. wow. IT WAS AMAZING.

My little sister, Stephanie.

 

Tonight I’m going to a Bon Iver concert in Oakland! I hope to take some cool pictures. I’m super excited because I haven’t been to a concert in years.

my twin sister graduated college!

Hey everyone!

Last Friday I went to Los Angeles for my twin sister’s college graduation! We spent the weekend together, hanging out and going to her pre-graduation lunch on Sunday at the Cheesecake Factory at the Americana. On Monday, she had her graduation ceremony at CSUN. It was such an exciting day, and I couldn’t be more proud of my sister. She had spent two years commuting in traffic (everyone knows the 5 & 405 freeway sucks), endless hours of homework and studying, many books she had to read for her classes, and worked a part-time job on top of it! Words can’t describe how proud I am!

Look how happy she looks! This just gave me more motivation to finish and get my degree. It’s going to be so worth it.

My family: dad, twin sister, mom, little sister, and my grandma at the end!

So, today was my last day of Spring semester, and all my finals are DONE! I am so happy to relax all summer long, thank goodness! I plan to go on a little vacation, but don’t want to say where, as I’m not 100% sure and plane tickets aren’t booked… yet. But when I do, I will definitely post about it!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! I’m going to continue watching Forensic Files (my new addiction, it’s sooo good) and relax.
