Welcome to Greneda

My baby sister is in town.

When CeCe’s in town, you can smell it in the air – and it smells like a vodka cranberry.

My sister CeCe is a potent woman. She barges into Los Angeles every few months and she’s a hurricane of brightly colored high heels and fluorescent cocktails. Instead of lounging with the family watching a movie, CeCe demands that we all play “Drink while you think: Celebrity version” until we’re bent over, cramped, in laughter and my brother is doing his best Michael Jackson Thriller video impression.

CeCe starts veterinary school in the Caribbean in January; so obviously, every drink concoction up until her departure can be viewed as “research.” She and my other sister Kimmy came up with this little doozy just the other night, and needless to say, it got silly.
