apology for the randomness

I've been having some pretty random thoughts these past couple of days. So, I'm going to blog about them. I apologize now for the randomness. This post will in no way be cohesive.

Shoes. I looooovvvveeee shoes. Along with clothes, jewelry, and anything else you can decorate yourself with. But shoes most of all. And I haven't bought a pair of shoes since NOVEMBER. If you know me, you know this is a huge deal. I'm trying to figure out what pair I'm going to buy next. Here are a few that I have my eye on for the summer:

Funny enough - these happen to ALL be Steve Madden sandals! Steve Madden is one of my favorite brands, so it is no coincidence!


Another thought on my mind: EEE. I'm pretty sure that if you're reading this blog, you probably know me and you already know that I'm an EEE. This week is Rush week at OBU and it's my first year without rush/pledge activities in four years! That was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I know people say, "I don't want to pay for my friends." And I can definitely see where you're coming from. There are lots of sororities that don't share a close bond. They pay their dues, buy the t-shirts and say that they're friends. But EEE is so different. We had so many opportunities to bond together. Within the first week, you do so many activities with your pledge sisters, you will get to know them whether you want to or not. Some of my funniest memories were from my pledge year. EEE and my pledge class definitely changed my life! [for the better of course] And I am so thankful for that.

The pictures that almost sum up my years of being an EEE :)
