Oops, guess I must have mixed up the code names somehow. I'll just blame it on the lack of caffeine as opposed to old age like I usually do.

It's ironic that the slogan on the bid day shirts and your sig are both based on the same source . . .

Congrats to your goddaughter and her roommate.

That is why I died laughing when she texted me the photo of the shirt

Thanks! She is pretty excited. I was supposed to see her this weekend, but her mom's surgery was rescheduled. I will see her when I fly back in a couple of weeks (hoping it is not rescheduled again)

Update: I did get to see goddaughter when I flew back to NC to be with her mom (my BFF) when she had her surgery. She loves the chapter and her new member class. Her birthday was the week after her mom had surgery (on 2/16). Her mother was released from the hospital that following Sunday and had to rest. Goddaughter was going to her first Chi-O formal 2 days after her birthday and she needed to find a dress, so my BFF and goddaughter asked me to go with her to shop. (Grandma stayed home with BFF but gave her funds to shop)
(like I EVER turn down shopping--I have a black belt in shopping)
She got a good deal on a GORGEOUS dress.
For her birthday, I bought her a Vera Bradley bag in the Night Owl pattern and a Lily Pulitzer Chi O wristlet. BFF accused me of spoiling her. Since I don't have children of my own, that is my job-- I have been doing it since she was born

As of this afternoon, goddaughter is officially an initiated member of Chi Omega

An Update

This is an old story, but what the hell, I am going to bump it.
26 days after I wrote the last post on here, I was back on a plane heading to North Carolina. My best friend...my goddaughter's mother lost her battle with lung cancer To say I was devastated was an understatement. That following Sunday, at least 20 Chi Omegas drove the 2.5 hours down south to attend the funeral for her mother. I knew she had a lot on her plate, so because of this, I paid her Chi Omega dues for the remainder of the time she was in school (Thank goodness they did not have houses!)

She served on her chapter's exec as Vice President.

FF to 2015: She met a wonderful guy who put a ring on it. He didn't go Greek, but his daddy is a Kappa Alpha Order from a school in Virginia. The day after the engagement, I told her she needed to bring him for a sit down with me...since mama was no longer with us, he had to go through ME! Needless to say, Mama Jill gave the stamp of approval! He is good people and I adore his family!

They both graduated in May 2015. My goddaughter graduated cum laude and I made the trip to see her walk. Thankfully, I was now living closer to her.

As I stated before, I took her to buy her a dress for her first sorority formal (her first "yes to the dress"). In October 2015, I was honored to be with her when she said "yes to the wedding dress".

It wasn't intended, but she is following her late mother's footsteps by working for a non profit agency. Being the Chi Omega she is, she is now working for her area Make A Wish Foundation.

I just took another look at the photo of her and her new member class (and her big in the background)

This past Friday (yup, 2 days ago), she got married in her hometown in North Carolina. Six of those women in the photo (including her big) were standing up with her when she walked down the aisle (8 bridesmaids)
One of the bridesmaids made the trip from Alaska

The wedding was beautiful and the sisters that were in attendance serenaded her. It was beautiful! Many joyful tears were shed.

To say I am proud of her is an understatement. I know her mother is smiling down on her and busting with pride
