After searching for old pictures of my dad and me in our photo albums, I came across some amazing fetus photos! As you can tell I've always been the wild one in our family and that fact is still true today. Whether I was swimming, playing music or just taking pictures, I was all about goofiness and fun. I hope these pictures bring a smile to your face just as they have mine!

After four successful seasons at Baylor, forward Taurean Prince was selected as the 12th pick overall in the NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. Prince was originally acquired by the Utah Jazz, but a three-team deal allowed the Hawks to pick up Prince while Jazz gained George Hill and the Indiana Pacers brought in Jeff Teague. Prince will fill a crucial role with the Hawks in the upcoming seasons. According to Jake Fischer- Sports Illustrated contributor- after being picked, Prince said "he knew Hawks were targeting him all along. Atlanta brought him for a second workout. 'We were vibing the entire time.'" After high school Prince was originally committed to LIU Brooklyn, but switched to Baylor at the last minute. His career skyrocketed during his junior year when he was named the National Sixth Man of the Year by Bleacher Report. During his final year at Baylor, Prince secured a full-time starting spot and improved his averages to 16 points and six boards while shooting 36% from long range and 47% of two-points. He also has a pretty great sense of humor as shown in this video: Please note this interview was after Baylor lost to Yale in the first round of March Madness.
Prince's strength on both offense and defense will allow him to shine in Atlanta. Good luck Taurean, we're so proud of you! P.S. Taurean was in my math class last year! Exciting times!

I've always been a blouse and jeans girl but I've recently fallen in love with dresses! They're easy to throw on and make me look instantly put together when paired with the right accessories. Today I spiced up a plain beige dress with my retro Kate Spade bag and everyday jewels. To tone down the outfit and make it appropriate for everyday in Hawaiʻi, I threw on my beloved Cole Haan sneakers.

After seven games, the Cleveland Cavaliers clinched the 2016 NBA Championship title, outscoring the Golden State Warriors 93-89. Before Sunday's game, the Cavs were down 3-1 with the odds stacked against them. GSW's "Splash Brothers" Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were off their game the entire night; missing shots left and right. Cleveland's LeBron James was named the Finals MVP with 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in the final game. James' teammate Kyrie Irving also played a phenomenal game, recording 26 points, 6 rebounds and one assist. The Cavs made history after coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the final championship game at Oracle Arena. Although Cleveland reaped the benefits of bogus officiating in game 7, James and Irving played the game of their lives while Curry and co. just couldn't compete. Congratulations to the 2016 NBA Champions!
