Sadly, this has been known to be true about me from time to time… I fear it may come out tonight…another night with the sorority ladies – loving all this Theta time. Makes me so happy! #Theta4Life
Do you use a phrase excessively? What is your phrase?
Every year my sorority sisters get together to celebrate the founding of our sorority. I absolutely love Founder’s Day. Last year, we were watching a video and I teared up (yes…I know that sounds cheesy…). It is so wonderful to get together and remember this is why I love being a Theta. These women never fail to amaze me and I feel blessed to get to be a part of it. From the outside, it looks silly or just like something to do in college – but it is far more than that, though if you are not in one I do not expect you to get it because it is one of those things you cannot understand unless you are a part of it. I feel blessed that I made a decision, which felt slightly on a whim my freshman year of college – because that one decision has brought me a lot of joy – and given me another reason to love dressing in black and gold…
Are you a part of a Greek organization? Are you still involved after your college years?
I’m taking a quick break in this whirlwind of a weekend to say hi! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend – whatever you are doing! Mine is jam packed, but in a way that still allows me to rest and relax. This morning I had to get up (and that was rough due to not getting so much sleep…I just love late night chats with friends and have a hard time walking away, thus it was a late night) and dress in badge attire. Badge attire?! That is right…I am a sorority girl. And, today we had the celebration of the 141st Founders Day for Kappa Alpha Theta. It was so good – and I was so thankful to be reminded why I love my sorority, the women who founded it, the women I have the privilege to interact with because of it and why I spend so much time volunteering with it. And to think I almost changed my mind, so glad I prepaid and it got me there – I drove away thinking, this was worth waking up and not feeling fully rested…and I’m proud to be a Theta…for a lifetime. Bettie Locke would be proud…along with Allison, Bettie and Hannah (the other three founders).
Along with feeling the tug of the kite (it’s a Theta thing…), I also got to see some great shoes! It was so fun to so many of my Theta gals being stylish even with all the snow on the ground. One pair I just could not get over was a pair of knee high black heeled boots that had a Victorian/vintage look to them. They were round toe and laced all the way up in a very classy way (though they had inside zippers for easier on and off use). The gal did not know the brand (I guess not everyone cares that much…), but they reminded me of these gorgeous Ann Demeulemeester boots.
I would love a pair of these! Maybe it is time to go boot shopping again…
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, loves! Gotta run to my next gathering! Ciao!
