How could anyone forget Raven-Symoné's "psychic visions" on That's So Raven?!

While the actress' HILARIOUS expressions from the show are seared into our collective memory, we almost forgot about the beloved child star after the popular series ended in 2007.

It turns out Symoné was pretty busy in the last few years — from Broadway to taking on college, girl has been killing it right under our noses!

As of May 2014, the triple-threat is a student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and she's currently in a happy relationship with a woman.

Aw, we're thrilled to hear that Raven is doing so well!

PEACH!

Raven captioned the brave snap:

"Yes, peach for the holidays… #unicorn #5thelement #holidaypumpkin."

Hmmm, while we love the peachy look, we're not sure how a pumpkin figures into Thanksgiving or Christmas…

Pie, perhaps?!

Regardless, we adore Raven for trying something different and chic!
