I think her anxiety is beginning to get to her! Ive been having strange dreams too so I will be happy once tomorrow comes either way.

I need copious amounts of wine!
Holy cow! What an awful dream! Glad its almost over.

It was an insane dream. I asked if she took anything to help her sleep and she mentioned Benadryl because she had insomnia and was desperate. I’m sure the meds played a role in the crazy dream. It’s midnight where I am and where she is and so far no call - she texted me. She is exhausted and going to sleep. Hoping tomorrow is a great day! And hoping she doesn’t any more crazy dreams.

Obviously, I don't know if there is a traditional gift on her campus, but I know that there are some cute items out there in one of our colors. It's hard to find things with lavender and maroon together that look good. Kendra Scott has some necklaces with either color as the "stone".

Alex and Ani have cute sorority bracelets right now. https://www.alexandani.com/sigma-kap...100445768.html

Lettered shirts are always a nice gift, Jenna Benna has a lot of cute patterns to choose from. I am sure she will love anything you send!

Thank you for the ideas. She is only 1.5 hours away and I am SO tempted to head up there for a congratulatory dinner but she may be doing SK stuff - but since its a holiday weekend I am not sure what is going to happen or what is planned. Haven't been able to talk with her since she texted me and told me where she got in this morning. Hoping and waiting to see some pictures. lol

I would SO go up there! You might be surprised. For some, bid day is amazing and for others it is a little overwhelming--especially as they are still riding that emotional roller coaster of recruitment week. It might be nice to have a hug and perhaps a late night coffee shop date with mom. If not today, brunch tomorrow might be a great alternative.

I have to second the Alex and Ani bracelet. I gave my daughter the gold version last year and she loves it! Amazon has them.

Yay! I love a Sigma Kappa ending!!

As for a gift, I would rule out live doves (and deceased ones), but she will love whatever you get her!!

She came home after the festivities yesterday in the late afternoon. We took her out for a congratulations dinner. She is so happy. After we got home from dinner she crashed in her bed and slept for 12 hours straight. She was so exhausted. This morning she woke up and was like "OK this is real. Oh and mom we need to find white dress for my pinning ceremony on Monday." Off to Macy's we went. Thank god for clearance racks - even in South Florida its hard to find white dresses this time of the year. All of the stuff is geared for fall even though its 90+ degrees here. We found two lovely dresses that she can choose which one to wear. Maybe one can be for the pinning and the other for initiation.

My sister was so happy. She was a Sigma Kappa (at another school) and is already making plans to attend her initiation. So glad the week is over. She slacked off on school work because she was so hyper focused on recruitment week but she promised me this week (aside from any meetings or events) she is re-focusing on her studies. Luckily we are only two weeks into classes.

Thanks for all the kind words.

PS. I already ordered the Alex and Ani bracelet online.

And if you’re a Prime member, Amazon ships many items for FREE and can ship to your daughter’s campus address.
