recruit(meant)

This week is THE week.

And by THE week, I mean sorority recruitment at CNU.

Just like every other girl that is going through the process, I am having a blast. But also like every other girl, I am stressing about it a little too much.

What does it all really mean?

For a little advice from one of the sweetest sorority girls around, I asked Rachel Timmerman from A Preppy State of Mind for some tips about finding the right place. She was sweet enough to give me some very encouraging advice that is meant to be shared!

“I know this sounds cliché, but being yourself when talking with the members of the sororities is SO important.  It is truly the very best way to find your fit.  Try not to be nervous, and remember to keep your options opened, because every sorority is different at every university.  I also think it’s a good idea to think up a list of important things you’re looking for in an organization ahead of time.  So, when you go through recruitment, ask yourself these questions and remember that they’re important qualities you are looking for.  I think that is how you can best find your fit.”

-Rachel

Could she be any more right?

Throughout this week, I have realized just how important it is to be true to yourself and your values in all that you do. This will surely lead you to the place God wants you to be!

On a lighter note, I am super excited to wear this darling necklace and dress from Our World Boutique tonight

I wish you all the very best!

Lately, I have had an incurable craving for candy corn.

Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an understatement…let’s go with obsession.

I have also had a little infatuation with Our World Boutique, my new favorite place for darling statement necklaces, my favorite type of a very different treat. (aka eye candy)

When I got the email that this darling neckwear had arrived in my mailbox, I grabbed a pair of scissors and ran to the Student Union. Looking back, this probably wasn’t the best idea in the world…

But hey, I can’t help that packages make me extremely happy.

(Especially when they contain something as delightful as this topaz and sapphire gem!)

With fantastic prices (most pieces are $10 or less!) and gorgeous designs, Our World will probably make frequent appearances in my friend’s gift bags this Christmas.

Aside from candy corn, this week has included a beach trip, Halloween festivities, and lots of runs in the perfect fall weather. It will soon include football and homecoming, which is THIS WEEKEND!

(If you can’t tell, I also really love homecoming)

Have a fabulous rest of your week, and don’t forget to make a little time to enjoy this beautiful world that God created and all the people in it, no matter how busy your schedule is.

Also remember that candy corn and online shopping have incredible healing properties…

with lots of love,

Maddie
