The one with too many exclamation points!

I'm dealing with some major writer's block. I can't even conjure up news articles, which I write all the time. Blah! All I can manage to talk about is what's going on lately. So earlier this week, lil miss Jen asked me if I wanted to be a "Classpert" on the Classy Closet. And of course I was all HECK YEAH! The Classy Closet is a social network for women to talk and learn about things like fashion, style, and wellness. There are some really great girls in that community, and I'm happy to be one of them! If you visit the site, be sure to check out my post introducing myself as a new Classpert! Excuse my randomness.. I know this has nothing to do with anything, but look what I had for dessert tonight. Yeah, strawberry shortcake. No big deal, but it was de-lish-us!

Also food related, this weekend I went to the Greek Festival! I didn't get to see or hear any of the performances, but I did get to try some of the food. I am so not a foodie, but I'm usually willing to try anything as long it doesn't break one of my major food rules. It didn't take long to realize that I would die of starvation if I was Greek! I ended up trying Souvlaki, which was interesting, but I'm definitely not a fan of it. I also had Greek fries and Baklava, which were yum (but I already knew that)! Speaking of Greek, my sorority had their bid day this Friday. They had a good quantity (great quality) of girls who decided to make Tri Sigma their home. I didn't get to attend Bid Day this year, but I plan on meeting all the new sisters at Homecoming in October!

Change of subject.. do you know MckMama @ My Charming Kids? If not, you should definitely read her blog or follow her on twitter. She has a son, Stellan, who has been dealing with serious health issues since before birth, and who was never expected to live. It's a miracle that he is alive today. MckMama is an amazing woman with a tremendous amount of faith, and her family deserves for their story to continue to be told. It's touching to know that so many people have been rallying around this family, supporting them from the very beginning. You should check out what one of her awesome supporters is doing in Stellan's name now. You can start showing support for this cause by putting one of these snazzy little buttons on your sidebar!

I went to the Greek Festival too. You should have watched some of the dances the women were doing. I'm mad they didn't invite us all to dance with them, lol. I'm glad the Sigmas got some good girls this year. I went to the fraternity Bid Day, and it was friggin crazy. The old security guards were down there trying to break up crowds. Lame. And you need to bring me some chocolate strawberry shortcake!

That strawberry shortcake looks delicious.

I second Terence: Oh my word! That cake looks amazing. It's chocolate? Wow. The beauty is almost too much to bear.
