ΑΓΔ Initiation Weekend

As I mentioned on Friday this weekend was my sorority's initiation.  My school does not allow freshmen to rush until second semester so our spring pledge class will be much bigger then our fall one.  Yesterday we initiated 6 new members.  We had events everyday this week leading up to Sunday, so it was exciting for it to finally be the big day.  It was so great to watch them learn more about Alpha Gam & for them to become full members.  There is a gorgeous old mansion on campus, which is where initiation took place.  I have been dying to get in there to look around since I was a freshman & I was thrilled to actually get to do it.  Rumor has it that the building is haunted, which only made it more alluring to me.  I realized as I'm writing this that I was a blogger fail because I did not take any pictures of how pretty it was inside.  I did steal this picture off of my school's website though.
The building has some pretty cool history, for anyone that's interested it can be found here.  The best part is that it was the perfect setting to take some outdoor pictures with all the girls once initiation was done.
I also had a get a picture with my little,  who is the best little ever!

I'm obsessed with the dress I wore.  I got it at El-Quetzal, which is a cute little boutique near school.  I can't wait to pair it with different accessories, I'm think a tan belt & ballet flats, among many other options.  I wore the nude heels that I showed in this post.  We're not allowed to wear any jewelry to the ceremony except our badges, & it's so funny how weird I felt not wearing earrings.  At this point putting them on is a part of my getting ready routine, so much so that I don't even think about putting them on!

So other then sorority activities this weekend I tried to keep it low key.  There was so much going on with initiation stuff & I had a lot of homework so I didn't want to exhaust myself.  I just relaxed Friday night because Saturday we had a long event to attend.  Saturday night I did a movie & wine with one of my sorority sisters, we watched "21 & Over", which was hysterical.  If you liked "The Hangover" I highly recommend this movie, we laughed so hard through the whole thing.  I mixed in a lot of homework with everything else & even did a group project Sunday morning before initiation (I was not a fan of getting up at 9:00 on Sunday [insert sad face]).  

Well that's what I did this weekend, what did you do?
