Kall Me a Kappa Key

Inspiration week, the week leading up to initiation, is Christmas in Greek life.

On Sunday night, I was feeling under the weather, but was cheered up when I came to find my room decked out in ribbons and bows, candy sprinkled all over my bed, and a note from my mystery big sis. And don't mistake the red and white striped tee for Waldo; it's most def the stripes of the American flag as you'll see here...

at big sis reveal! Kat and I went to high school together and our entire Kappa family is made of Memorial Mustangs. The rest of the week consisted of dinners and other gatherings all leading up to the big initiation night/day.

The week concluded with a brunch for our parents to attend to celebrate our transition from pledges to active members.

Since baby Quinn is only weeks away from her long awaited arrival, Lindsay couldn't make it to initiation. Instead, she sent this gorgeous flower arrangements to congratulate me on becoming a real Kappa key! Now when I get home we can relish in all our secret sharing...

Just in case I forget what sorority I'm in, I have a few things to remind me! Before our arrival, Hardin emphasized to avoid bringing a lot of T-shirts from home because we would be inundated with Greek gear all first semester. Kat did just that and loaded my bed with fanny packs, crosses, my darling paddle, treats, and an assortment of tshirts to commemorate the occasion.

So after a long celebratory week, I was happy for a return to normalcy. Merl returned from Vanderbilt after a lovely visit and Kelsey also spent her weekend at initiation affairs. It didn't take long for us to revert back to our silly antics, especially with the help of our little cockroach friend. Turns out three major bugaphobics live in 2A, but Kelsey conquered her fear and exterminated the little guy with the help of her DG paddle. The whole trauma involved lots of 3am shrieking, hairspray, and a mess of a room by the end. Nevertheless, yet another fond (kind of) memory was made in 2A.

I love that I'm always super awkward in your blog posts; people probably think I'm super weird! Oh well! Love you and love the post!- Kels
