Maybe it’s the change in seasons, but I’ve been really into switching up my style lately. I usually like to dress very feminine, but today I went for a laid-back, almost grunge look (complete with gray beanie and ripped jeans, of course). Mary said my outfit was “very Marc Jacobs” – I’ll take it : ) I finally got a pair of “shooties” too – a great addition to my spring wardrobe. Thanks Mom!
Hope you all have a wonderful day! Only a day left till the weekend : )
Monday night was big/little reveal, one of the best nights of the year! The whole weekend was spent making crafts (for me this means using a hot glue gun) and getting everything ready for the reveal. After about two and a half hours spent in Wal-Mart and Michaels, we were able to find all the supplies we needed for our t-shirts and flower crowns. I’m not too artsy, so shout-out to Taylor and Megan for all of their help. : )I was so excited to find out Ashleigh is my little. We kill the dance floor! p.s. Didn’t the flower crowns turn out fab?! One of these days I’m gonna wear mine to class.
Our family has gotten so big! Welcome to the Dragonfly fam, guys.
Love love love them.
The classic birthing pic. Kinda awkward but absolutelynecessary.
We love our beautiful grand big Doris : )
So thankful for these girls each and every day!
One of the best things about being in a sorority is getting to have your own mini family within it. I honestly don’t know what I’d do without these girls in my life, but I’m so happy we’re all Dragonflies (and more than that, DGs.) Now we have formal and Dad’s Day to look forward to this weekend. It’ll be a busy but fun couple of days!
Hope you’ve had a wonderful week!
p.s. Thanks to Mary for all of her great photos : )
All photos taken by the lovely and talented Mary Pennington : )

Today my big and I took some photos outside with her snazzy camera. It’s still freezing, but at least I’ve got my favorite new boots to keep me warm! Hope you’re warm and toasty wherever you’re at – I’ve got to go do some Spanish homework : )
“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
I’ve really had to keep this in mind this week as I’ve gone through formal recruitment at college. Though this is such a fun week, with each day filled with wonderful new girls and experiences, it is also very stressful and nerve-wracking. I’m very thankful and humbled every day when I receive my schedule, and I’ve been very lucky so far. It’s hard, though, to see girls, especially close friends, get their feelings hurt and become disappointed. It’s definitely tough to hear this when your dreams have just been dashed, but I know this to be true: it will all turn out for the best in the end.
