When My Grandma Comes to Visit

When My Grandma Comes to Visit

November 28th, 2014

My grandma lived in Chicago for part of her childhood before moving to rural Illinois. The phrase, “You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl,” describes her perfectly. So when she comes to visit me in Chicago you better bet that means we do […]


Thankful Loyolans

Thankful Loyolans

November 25th, 2014

    In order to show their gratitude and thankfulness this year, Ramblers took hundreds of post-it notes to a chalkboard on-campus to share what they were thankful for:   Happy Thanksgiving from our Loyola family to yours!  


Care Package

Care Package

February 18th, 2014

I received the greatest care package the other day from my family.  It was a bunch of random items, but strangely enough, it was all I ever wanted for Valentines day! Here’s a few of the things I received. 1.  Yum Yum Sauce.- Ok, if you’ve never had yum yum sauce, I insist you try […]


Valentine’s Day ’13

February 14th, 2013

It’s Valentine’s Day 2013, and the love is in the air…metaphorically speaking. Couples are probably going to be going out tonight to celebrate one another, but what about those of us without a significant other? Well, for us, we have other “significants”- our friends and families. For example, tonight after my Operations Management exam, I’ll […]


Christmas Break

Christmas Break

January 23rd, 2013

Christmas break was EXTREMELY relaxing! It was so nice to take a break from the mounds of schoolwork I usually have and just enjoy the company of family and friends while eating tons of home cooked meals (my favorite part!). One of the many perks of Loyola is that they give everyone a full month […]


Thanksgiving Break

December 6th, 2012

Thanksgiving break was a much needed, relaxing time.  I booked it home on the MegaBus Tuesday, and arrived home Tuesday night to my family, dog and my favorite pasta! It was the perfect things to come home to. I went to both sets of my grandparents houses on Thanksgiving day.  I ate twice (it’s possible.. […]


Easter Traditions

April 5th, 2012

Easter is just three days away! This not only means the end of lent and a massive overload of chocolate for me, but lots of family and church as well. Even though my brothers and I are long past believing in the Easter Bunny, my mom still makes us search for our Easter basket that […]


Awaiting My Family

Awaiting My Family

April 3rd, 2012

This upcoming Easter weekend, my mom, dad, brother and sister are all headed over to Rome to visit me! I’m currently making a list of places for us to go/eat/sight see.  They’re coming for a week, and are hoping to make it to all Rome’s main attractions: The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Trevi Fountain […]


Thanksgiving Festivities

November 29th, 2011

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  Obviously, I love feasting on one of my all time favorite foods, mashed potatoes, but I also like being reminded of everything I am thankful for. This Thanksgiving was a little different for our family.  We usually go to both of my grandparents’ house, but this time, we […]
