She's just my sister was created by five sisters that are now scattered around the US: from Florida, to DC, to the Midwest and the Carolinas but all come together on this blog. Rylee is the mom of the group (has been long before she actually became a mom) and lives in DC with her husband Tim and her beautiful daughter, Gemma. Torey is the fitness guru. Currently attending PT school at Wingate University in North Carolina, Torey is the one who keeps our workouts and diets in line. Christine is the one who was lucky enough to marry into the family- living in South Florida married to the oldest brother, Ryan, Christine is the fashionista and photographer of the fivesome. Maddie is the adventurous one. After spending last semester gallivanting around Europe (and making all of us insanely jealous), she is in her senior year at Xavier University in Cincinnati. And last but not least, there's Meghan. Meghan is a sophomore at Loyola University in Chicago and is the baker of the group- anything she makes in the kitchen is seriously to die for. We started this site to have something that we can all contribute to as well as share all of our experiences. We'll cover topics from college life to motherhood and everything in between. Thanks for stopping by!
Friends! I'm Rylee, I'm a midwesterner at heart even though I've lived on the east coast for the last 7 years. I will fight anyone who says the Great Lakes don't have 'real' beaches, I still say 'pop' instead of 'soda', think that sunsets over cornfields might be the most beautiful vistas I've ever laid eyes on, and proudly claim that the midwestern people are the best I know. I followed in the footsteps of our parents and married my high school sweetheart shortly after graduating from college. Tim and I made our first home in Boston while he worked on his Masters degree. Boston will always have a place in our hearts as it was the place where we welcomed our sweet Gemma Brigid into our family but we got out before she adapted the accent. We moved to DC this past June so I could continue my work in ministry at The Catholic University of America, you can find out more about that here. If you would like to see the chronicles of 68 Gemma pictures a day with the backdrop of a messy kitchen counter you can follow along at my personal blog: My Life, My Sweetness.
Hey there! I'm Torey! I graduated from Purdue University in 2015 with a degree in Nutrition, Fitness, and Health, but don't let the degree fool you. I love to eat and cook and am proud of my well deserved nickname, "Queen of the McNugs". Still, I love to use my knowledge to help others optimize their health. After graduation, I packed my bags and moved from small town Indiana to North Carolina. Currently, I am working towards my Doctor of Physical Therapy at Wingate University and am loving every minute pursuing my dream. I have what some people would consider an "unhealthy obsession" with trying to win free competitions, braiding hair, and a good sale rack, and I can't wait to share my new finds with you!
Hi! I'm Christine and I am the in-law of the group as of July 29, 2016 :) I graduated from the University of Florida in May 2015 with a degree in journalism and a minor in Portuguese- side note, Rio de Janeiro is amazing! I grew up in South Florida and Ryan and I moved back down here after we got engaged. I currently work for Palm Beach Atlantic University- Go Sailfish! (so FL I know) in their Marketing department but also have my own freelance photography business, CCasey Photography , which is what I truly aspire to be my career- so fingers crossed for that. When I'm not working, I'm taking photos of just about everything and overindulging on online shopping- Ry feels that I have a shoe problem- I call it a hobby :)
Hey there! My name is Maddie, and I am the third and proud member of this quintuplet. I am a senior at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH studying Health Care Administration with a concentration in Long Term Care. I just returned from a semester abroad in Salzburg, Austria and essentially ran my bank account dry. Consequently, I know a thing or two about balling on a budget. With a newfound appreciation for adventure, food and beer, I am on a mission to tackle my (second) favorite city in the US despite my sticky situation with my wallet. I cannot wait to share all my mini endeavors!
Last but not least it's me, Meghan! I am going into my second year studying math at Loyola University Chicago, and as my major may suggest, you will have to forgive my poor writing skills. Chicago is my wonderland, and it is my prerogative to explore every square inch of it before graduating. I am a self-proclaimed nerd who can most often be found with a good book and a cup of joe. I can't wait to share my love of baking cupcakes with you all, and hope not to gain another freshman fifteen in the process.
