About Me

I love red velvet cake, glitter, music, car washes, and nail polish. I am a southern belle with a hint of cajun class. Starting this blog was a challenge to do something I WANTED to do not because I HAD to.

college or resort?


This was my view during my meetings with the exec team
oh and to watch the VS fashion show!
great view right!?

precious art work in the University Center.
too funny :)

This campus is beautiful!  HPU is on everything...as you can see here on the umbrellas.

Campus is filled with wonderful Christmas decorations

great quotes to give some inspiration as you walk to class!

Oh hello Shakespeare! Is this seat taken?

High Point University is absolutely stunning!  I just fell in love with the farmer's market on campus.  I even got a pair of earrings out of it.  The lady at the register where they swipe their student cards stopped us one day and gave me some silver earrings!  This job really has amazing opportunities and is a blessing.  I cannot help but be thankful!

And the fireplace...every meeting was held right there.  I mean who wouldn't meet by the fire!? :)

Sorry to everyone who reads my blog...been slacking lately.  It doesn't help that I am home. :)
More to come soon...promise!

Lessons Learned

I had an teaching opportunity with a chapter I recently visited.  The feeling of knowing that I helped the girls learn something about Phi Mu and themselves was very satisfying.  Throughout this job I have had lots of opportunities to teach.  Some of it is just the nature of the job.  It is nice to walk away from the experience and know without a shadow of a doubt that you made a difference.  Ah you cannot be that feeling.  

Then on the flip side I had a learning opportunity.  The cliche "you learn something new everyday" really is true.  This time was a little more substantial than a fun fact for the day.  I must be honest sometimes the journey of learning something new is not fun.  It is difficult.  uncomfortable. But worth it.  

I wanted to share some cool quotes I found on pinterest about learning.  Every day is a learning experience and I am doing my best to embrace it.

Love these...hope you all do the same.

Rocky Top

I know it has been a while since I actually was in Tennessee, but I never blogged about it.  My visit to Knoxville was jam packed busy! Date Party, Meetings all day (I mean literally ALL day), family tailgate, football game, and elections!  I also was blessed to catch up with some oldie but goodie Beta friends.  I just love how the Beta Club from High School can connect you to people all over the country.  It was great to catch up with Ali, Lindsey, and Carlos.  Miss those peeps:)

I enjoyed going to the game...this stadium was massive. It holds over 100,000 people. I mean seriously I felt like a bug in this place.  I was a true Tennessee girl that night.  I sang every word to Rocky Top every single time it played.  You should have seen me shaking my pom pom to all the cheers! Gosh I loved it.  I even became bff with the guy next to me...football just brings people together.  

It is funny that I am writing this today when LSU is playing in the SEC Championship.  

I was told by Mille the chapter President that back in the 80s when everyone would sing Rocky Top there was never the "whoo" in the song until some Phi Mus started it.  Now I really don't know if this is exactly true, but the Kappa Sigma President who sat with us agreed and said that it was true!  After hearing the story every time when it came to shout the "whoo" and fist pump at the same time I always smiled because I knew the true story behind that!  I just love the story whether it is really true or not.  :)

Famous flame statue on campus


I just had to take a picture of these crazy pants!

Sweet Chapter President Mille and myself
We also had really great seats...16th row.  Oh and I also sported my bright orange coat.  
Happy Game day to all.
