i'm baaaack!

This is me these days.
Newly free from crazy employment, and super excited about it. Everything turned out just the way I hoped it would!
I just painted my nails. I NEVER paint my nails. If they get even one tiny little chip, I'm done for! How long will these ones last?
I really really really wanna go to Usher & Trey Songz in November. Anyone wanna go with me?
Speaking of November... I can't wait. For Thanksgiving. Disneyland & Rebs, who could ask for more?
The new Forever 21 at the Fashion Show is awful. And by awful, I mean awful for my wallet. I literally cannot go in there and not walk out with something. Terrible, terrible.
It hit me last night that some of my friends are moms. How crazy? When did we get old enough to have our own children? It's funny how we all used to be in the same place in life and now everyone is everywhere.
Speaking of babies... I cannot WAIT for my little king charles to enter the world in December! We call him Charlie. Brother and sister in law won't tell us any names yet, so it's charlie/king charles for now.
Speaking of babies again... my cousins had the cutest baby I've ever seen. Really, Reese just came out sooo beautiful and I die for all the cute pictures of her! I can't wait to meet her in person!
I lowkey miss my little sister (you better read this because I'll never say it in person)
I love school and having a class with my cousin Jake and Sadie. They're cool.
I love institute. Who woulda thought??
I love getting emails from Courtney and Ally every week. I miss them more.
Super excited for bball season to start!
Me and Mom went to a little bball event for women last week... we love all our Rebel family. They are so sweet and funny and it still surprises me when Coach remembers my name. Don't worry, me and Kori dipped when they forced us to do a layup line in front of the whole team... I just couldn't do it. Other than that, we had a blast!
Can't wait to see some long lost friends at Trevor and Jordans wedding next week. Yay for reuniting!

life in chocolate.

I'm sorry that I've turned into the worlds worst blogger! Really, I wish I had more time to blog. I will in two weeks. I quit my ridiculous job and I'm beyond relieved... I feel like I can breathe again! So until that job ends next week, I'll leave you with a little food love: Max Brenner. AMAZING. The restaurant is pretty much based on chocolate. The place smells incredible, and almost every dish has a little chocolaty love. The drinks are to die for. I had a banana split shake that was just divine, and the frozen hot chocolate was spectacular! I'm running out of adjectives and I'm not even at the appetizers. The macaroni and cheese- best I've ever had, hands down. I had these thai chicken stick things that were super satisfying. And then we get to the desserts. Oh, the desserts. I LIVE for Max Brenner desserts. We had an assortment of fondue, smore's with a little flame where you roast your mallows, dessert waffles, and a sundae. EVERYTHING was perfect. I've never tasted better chocolate fondue in my existence. Have I convinced you to go yet? Because you really should. I probably ate my body weight, but that's okay! In one of the pictures you can clearly see that I'm storing some food in my cheeks like a chipmunk. Hey, why not save some for later?! I heart you, Max.

it's true, we're stars.

I am obsessed with this show.

My aunt and cousin got me fixed on it at the beach last year when pretty much every waking moment was spent on our laptops watching the live feeds. Seriously, watch one episode and you're addicted! Well this year when I was in Mexico, I got a facebook message from my cousin Tiffany saying Call me-URGENT. Don't worry, her life wasn't in danger or anything, she just got tickets to the Big Brother live show in LA the next day! This is pretty much like hitting the jackpot. Very few people actually get to go to the studio and witness a live eviction. Needless to say, I HAD to be there. It wasn't even a choice. Long story short, we jumped through many hoops to get me from Mexico to LA the next day, which included a very long border crossing and a personal driver who also worked parties at the Playboy Mansion. I can totally get us in, by the way.
I met Tiff, Janae, and Tiff's mom at CBS Studios in Studio City. We were practically first in line, it was fantastic. After a little bit of waiting they walked us all over to the actual studio where the show is filmed. If you don't know about BB, it's basically 13 people live in a house filled with cameras. They don't have tv, music, books, anything. It gets real dramatic when you have nothing to do but be surrounded by weird people, and they are the only people they see all summer. No one comes in, and one person leaves each week. The coolest part about going to the live show was that the "house" they live is inside the studio we were at! The front door was literally right behind us. So weird.
Anyways, the most wonderful and ego-boosting part about this whole experience was that when you walk into the studio, an audience coordinator seats people where she thinks they should go... aka, if you are attractive, you go in the front. We thought really highly of ourselves when we were placed in the front row, right behind where Julie Chen stands. Pretty much the best seats in the house with a lot of camera time. We rock. We got to see the most hates houseguest Rachel get evicted. Fun Facts: She has the worlds worst hair extensions, the most annoying laugh, and we hate her because she makes Vegas girls look like skanks. We were happy to see her go!
Here's some screenshots of us on the show.

And if you look close, you can see my little head right behind Rachel when she was getting interviewed.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU TIFF for sharing this experience with me!! I had such a good time!!
