Glad that's over

If all of you knew what my last two weeks consisted of, you'd probably force me to go on a permanent vacation....

Well we had crazy full force spring recruitment, but that was the least of my problems. I had been having severe back pain for weeks and I kept ignoring, even exercised up until the night of our open house when I found myself being dragged to the ER by a sorority sister. Diagnosis: I was the proud parent of a 3mm kidney stone, yes that's right 3mm and that 3mm caused the biggest amount of pain you can imagine. In less than 24 hours, I was violated, medicated, and any other terminology you can imagine. It is quite hilarious looking bag, but those boogers are no fun. If you can picture me in a hospital bed crying not over my pain, but because I was missing my very first recruitment event, total sorority girl move right?!
By the time my dad got there, I was begging him to take me home, I may be 21, but sometimes I still need my mommy and daddy. Poor kBe was constantly checking on me and worried (sweetest boy ever). I know he and I have been dating almost three years, but I have never felt more loved and cared for by his family. His sweet father Dr. B was constantly checking on me, made sure I saw the right doctors and even made sure the whole family was calm. kBe's sweet mom who was on vacation was checking in and making sure I was okay. I guess its true you just don't know how blessed you are until times get tough.
On top of my sweet family, my friends and sisters were constantly praying and they picked up right where I left off and made the event a success. It was the ultimate reminder of how grateful I am for each and every one of them, but most of all I owed a thank you to my best buddy from the 229 Kimber forcing me to go to the hospital when I refused.
As I fast forward two almost three weeks, I am still overwhelmed by the cards, prayers, and calls I received and as much as I am glad to say it's over, I am so thankful to know how many people were there.

Xi love and all of mine,


Ps On a side recruitment note, we nabbed 6 girls in spite of my time away and I am so proud of them. :)

Thank goodness for holidays!

Thank you MLK Jr. Though I celebrated by sleeping in and getting my nails done, I am very thankful for the time off and I hope others did something better than me. This week I won't be on the blog scene, considering my crazy schedule, but I wish you all a very happy four day work week.

I'll leave you with a video I think you should all watch. As many of you know I'm Greek and I know that comes with all the stereotypes but I think this video shows a different side...

Whobe whate?

 I saw this picture on Pinterest and wow does it describe my life perfect right now
I probably haven't clued you in, but I have the honor of guiding my sorority through recruitment this year... oh hey Membership VP. But to whom much is given much is expected. In my case that means chapter total is going up and unlike the usual informal spring recruitment, we are having "semi" formal recruitment (whatever that means) Now getting finding my "me" time just got a little bit more complicated. God bless my sisters and my poor boyfriend. My scattered brain just went to a whole new level. So back to the texts, FB messages, and constant to do lists, and oh wait my new BFF: MY PLANNER! Who knew plans were so important?!

Love to all!
(messages of encouragement or advice greatly appreciated ;) )


Oh yeah I forgot and school...so that's what I'm here to do.... ;)

I have been meaning to do that

Welcome back to my always eventful and crazy world. As you can see coming back to the blogging is a slow transition for me, but since its a new year and those " I have been meaning to blog" excuses or by the wayside, I guess its time to continue what I started.

This New Year is a little different than many before, I am really at the crossroads point in my life. I'm over halfway through my college career, trying to figure out my career path, but in spite of all of that I have lost sight of "me" time. I hate to plan, I am not a planner by any means, I try to go with the flow, but yet I'm stubborn, crazy right?! On top of that, I give up so much of my time helping others that I lose my personal time to keep myself healthy and happy. So this year is about getting back to the basics making myself happy, so those close to me don't suffer through my boring depressive states. Its hitting the gym and eating right. Its giving up some things while clinging to others, its finding that fit. When I think of where I was this time last year, I still smile because I have had such wonderful opportunities and people who surrounded me who have help me to grow. Learning last year, I couldn't do it all myself and leaning on others to help me was great, but now I just need to put myself in perspective a little more. So here's to a NEW YEAR, my year!
