My Sister, JuliaAtHarvard

My sister Julia is a Sophomore at Harvard University. She recently started a Vlog sharing her journey. A lot of my younger college bound readers had asked me questions to ask her..but now this makes it much easier! Ask Julia questions at her channel on Youtube!
You can learn more about Julia here:


Vlog 1: A Quick Introduction (Dorm Room Tour)

Vlog 2: Julia Turns 19

I am proud of you Julia!

I leave you with some oldies, but goodies!
I hold baby Julia wearing PJ's my Mom sewed me. lol
Julia (baby) and Steph (5 years old).
We're about 5 and 1/2 years apart.
Julia: "We're 5 years 5 months and 2 weeks apart."
Thanks Julia, I've ALWAYS wanted to know that.
Julia was probably 3, and I was most likely 8.
That's our very first hamster Kristen. Julia put a hamster on our mom's head once..she wasn't very happy about it. Mom is scared of rodents, but she loved us enough to let us have hamsters.

Fast Forward:
At the DIA (Detroit Institute of Art) with Cousin Nam!!
Museum Mystery!! Gosh I miss my sister. I haven't seen her in 11 months.
We share a sense of humor bond of some sort..for example, you can be totally mean honest with each other and it would still be super funny because it's absolutely true! We still chat online and video chat every blue moon. I would have her video chat baby sit my dogs when I leave. LOL

For those of you who are still living under your parents roof, enjoy every moment of it!
Julia and I had some great childhood memories growing up together. We would argue and fight like cats and dogs. But it was SO much fun!! lol Once you fly the coop, life changes forrealz. I hope to live near my sister and parents someday!
At Uncle Vinh's wedding 2006? I made all the jewelry we're wearing!
I remember I spent days and hours making the necklace Julia's wearing on the right.
It was my first time making wrap links ever.
We still have it!
Julia's 16th birthday party in Michigan. I remember bringing Minh home to meet my Mom's side of the family. lolz
At Snoqualmie Falls, WA
That's our family!
Another set of siblings I know. lol

They miss Julia too. We miss you Julia!!

Have a GREAT weekend everyone! The sun just came out and I'm going to take advantage of the beautiful day! Peace!


  1. What a sweet sisterhood you guys have! I have sisters myself and this post made me want to spend more time with them! Best of wishes to Julia at Harvard, seeing your childhood photos are so fun!
    Love the last picture, too cute! :)

  2. Happy Birthday to your sister! I hope she enjoys her time at Harvard, I remember when you announced she got accepted there. Truly exciting! I wish her well in her studies =]

  3. Happy Birthday to Julia! Your family must be so proud of both of you!!

  4. She is so adorable! And such a smarty - I was always in awe of the undergrads :)

  5. @Tiffany How many siblings do you have? :) I know you have doggies, but not sisters! Too cool!

    @Rubiiee Thank you! :D

    @JC I'm just glad my parents don't have to worry about us nearly as much anymore! lol

    @Kat :D I'm proud to be her big sister.

  6. You should def try Cod Liver Oil when you get a chance. I also hear the benefits of it too, mostly for skin and heart benefits :D I love Pinking of You! What a beauuutiful color =D

    Happy 2 yr Seattle anniversary!!!!! :) I love that place!

  7. HI Steph!! :) I've tried it, and it does have a gross-ish smell but you can buy the soft gels if you don't want to take the liquid itself. I've seen online they have lemon flavored ones but I don't know how they can disguise the smell of fish LOL :p I'm currently trying to finish up my flaxseed supplements, and then I' will be moving to cod liver oil soft gels :p

  8. That pink polish is gorgeous!

  9. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that dislikes most Halloween things! Glad you didn't get hurt in the accident! :)
