So long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good Night (2016)

This year has been one for the books. An upset election, racial tension rising, and for me personally, my father lost his battle with Dementia. As I sit here and reflect on 2016, I can't say that I am sad to see it leave. I am anxiously awaiting to see what 2017 has to offer.

I pray for you, our country, and President Obama and his family as he leaves office. He did the best he could with the challenges of having a Republican Senate, and House. Although I am sad to see him leave, I am grateful to know that he can get some much-needed rest, and can take Mrs. Obama on a and I quote "Much needed and long overdue vacation."

I know a lot of you are preparing for Spring Semester, Rush, in hopes of getting picked to join the organization of your choice. I wish you all the best with that. As I have stated on my previous blogs, just be yourself, and I am sure you will be fine. 

On another note, one of my favorite Delta Vendors, TIG:MIR is closing its doors. I am SO sad. Ironically I just placed a HUGE order to the vendor 2 weeks ago. Most of her stuff that is generally $50-$60 a piece is now $5-$20 each. I went back and stacked up on a LOT of items. I think I bought ALL of her remaining pieces in like EVERY.SINGLE.COLOR! When she made the announcement on New Years Eve, I was crushed. After getting out of my feelings (LOL) I started to buy, buy, buy! And to get stuff that was originally 60 bucks and they are now FIVE BUCKS? Girl BYE! As I stated I snatched up every color, in TWO DIFFERENT SIZES (in case I lose weight, LOL).  I ordered $700 worth of items for.....Drumroll please.......$120! WINNER!!!!! Here is a preview of some of the items I purchased. I can't wait to rock 'em this summer.

Welcome Back To my Initiating Chapter!!!!

Bonjour Mon Ami!

I am excited to announce that after a SEVEN year hiatus, my chapter is back on the yard. 26 young ladies crossed the sands into Delta-Land at my alma mater.  I was sad that I wasn't able to see them, HOWEVER I was ecstatic that my husband's ship (line brother) was able to attend and live streamed it for me to see. A lot sorors who were initiated in my home chapter all came down for their initiation and their NIP (New Initiate Presentation). It was a beautiful sight to see. Seeing them on center stage took me back to when I crossed. I was also able to see my prophytes, my neos, and my line sisters as well. I cannot wait to return back to my home chapter to meet the neos in person.

One of my prophyte's daughter just became a delta s well. She just chartered a BRAND new chapter. I am so excited for them. I am sure it took a lot hard work, and dedication.

So, if you are in a position where there is not a chapter on your yard due to either suspension, lack of interests for many years, or there was never a chapter on the yard, don't give up! With persistence, a lot of hard work and dedication, you can make it happen!
