Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.


Hi girls! Busy week- but I wanted to take a moment to let my sweet sorority sister know that I am thinking about her and praying for her! Fortunately, she is OK, but unfortunately sweet girl’s apartment burned to the ground last night, and she has lost everything. I am still not sure of all the details, but I know that God was watching out for Kate and woke her up so she could get out of her third floor apartment safely.
And this is why I love my sorority sisters so much-
The first thing when I got to work this morning, I had emails and messages from sisters organizing plans to help Kate. We will be sending her surprise goodies to help her through this tough time. We truly are sisters for life, and I am tearing up just thinking about it.
Katey- I love you! I am thinking about you and I am SO thankful that you are OK! We will help get you through this!
Please pray for everyone effected by this fire, I am so happy that everyone is accounted for, and there were no casualties.

xoxo Kate, and my lovely ADpi sisters!

    How scary! I'm glad she is safe though – truly an act of God. I rushed this year and unfortunately didn't get into any of Miami's sororities 🙁 I really loved the idea of this kind of sisterhood and wanted to be a part of such an amazing thing.

  2. Danielle says:

    That's terrible! That's great that so many of you are pulling together to help her out. That's what sisters are for (:

    I was amazed how many seniors you guys had. By the time senior year rolled around, our numbers had dwindled drastically with so many other commitments and such.

  3. So sad! I lost my childhood home to a fire when I was almost 15. You never forget. My prayers will be with the families affected — if there's anything I can do, let me know!

  4. Rachel says:

    This makes me tear up and miss all of my sorority sisters! What a beautiful picture of true sisterhood, how I miss that SO much! I'm definitely going to be calling my girls today and reminding them of how much I love them.

    If there's anything I can do to help, please don't hesitate to let us know! I would love to lend a hand for your sorority sister 🙂

  34. I know just how much you and the other Lex girls mean to Kate. God and our guardian angel were both watching over my little sister yesterday. I didn't see your post until now as I couldn't even keep up with all the emails and calls between everything else yesterday. Thanks again… we know how strong Kate is, and how much support will be rallying around her! xoxo

  35. Mighty Burns says:

    that is so amazing! I am sure she is so thankful she has you guys during this time, and what a great way to help her out too. I cant even imagin losing everything I have. thats horrid. but no casualties is a good good good thing.
    In that last picture you guys are all SO TAN! lol

  36. Loving this post! I know Kate just saw it last night. Thank you from the entire family! All you girls mean so much to her and the texts, calls and emails have been wonderful!

    She is strong and will make it through the rebuild. I am just thankful that God and our guardian angel were both watching over her.

  37. Mommy Webb says:

    You are so right, sister. Our Pi bonds are strong and when things get tough, we can depend on each other. Let me know if I can help in any way –
