Spring Cleaning

Tomorrow my sorority has our big senior farewell event. Our family trees will be writing poems to say goodbye to us and us seniors will be "passing down" all of the MASS amounts of Sigma stuff we have collected over the years. The thing I am most looking forward to passing down is my awesome collection of costumes for all our themed events. I hope you all get a good giggle out of the costumes my friends and I have worn.

This Halloween I was Angelica Pickles from the Rugrats...

I was also a bumble bee....
An Indian....

The list of costumes I have continues with a camo dress, an elf costume, hideous Christmas sweaters and many more. It is fascinating how much time and money I have wasted on costumes throughout college. But they each bring back a special memory that I will surely miss.

Happy Tuesday!

Southern State of Mind.

Today, I am in a very southern state of mind. With my hair curled, dress on, and cowgirl boots as my accessory I feel totally consumed in preparing for my post graduation southern life. One thing I am looking forward to, is a new home with new grown up stuff. Naturally, it will all have Southern style. The number one thing I cannot wait to throw out in two weeks is my college comforter. And what exactly do I want to replace it with???

This Beauty.
If you ask me its blue background and gorgeous floral pattern are just perfect. Pottery Barn has the best stuff!

And as for bowls and dishes. I don't accept anything too nice. But I would love these to start off with. I think they're fun and young without being too "college"
I'm so blessed to have parents that will be supporting me as I start off in Charlotte. I can't wait to have my own place to be able to entertain people at. It will definitely help me feel a little more grown up.

Somewhere Only We Know.

Last night was my very last Sigma formal. And let's just say, we went out with a bang. I know that all friends love each other, but with my friends it's just different. I never knew that it was possible to have a group of friends who are so fiercely loyal, so supportive, and love each other this much.

PC 08... I live for us.

I decided that for my last formal, I would take a risk and dawn a white dress. I was terrified it would get spilled on, but in fact it survived perfectly. My date Spencer and I are the only two of our friends moving to Charlotte after graduation and I'm so thankful to have him for next year!
And lastly a little photo montage to one of my favorites... Brooke Shore. Check out how we have grown from our first Sigma Formal to our very last.

The Real World

What a whirlwind this week has been. I want to start off by sharing a photo of my banquet date and I. Fraternity banquets are such a huge part of Elon life and I had the perfect date. It was such a good way to start my last few weeks here. Banquet brought some of my best memories of senior year. "No Feelings"            
Right after the perfect weekend, I received my first job offer and accepted. What a time of mixed feelings in my life. I am so blessed to have a job waiting for me with three weeks until graduation. I will be working at Addison Whitney, a top brand consulting firm in their Charlotte office. I have worked so hard throughout my time at Elon and I truly do deserve this.

But on that same token, having a job makes it all real. In a mere 15 days, I will be leaving my friends. I am the only one moving to Charlotte. It terrifies me and breaks my heart that I won't have my girls with me. Somewhere along the lines, my friends stopped being my sorority sisters and became my family.

Whirlwind of Emotions has set in.
