#HASHTAGHUMPDAY | the one about the weekend and stuff

How is it April already? Time is whipping right past me and I've had zero time to catch up. Or blog, obviously.

Before we get into it, let me remind you you have a plethora of link ups to confess your face off to every Wednesday. #Hashtaghumpday with my partner in crime Lauren and I of course, Alanna for confessions as well as Plucky in Love, and then Kathy and Nadine! So much humpity-hump-day love!  

#Hashtaghumpday @ Life with Lolo

 First a little business. Here’s the scoop:
  • Each Wednesday create a post about what’s going on in your life and #hashtag each item or story. See an example HERE. Be as creative as you want! 
  • Grab the button and include it in your post
  •  Link up so we can all #creep on you and find out what’s new/funny/awesome /shitty in your life.
  • Comment on at least one other blogger’s post from the link up (someone you don’t already know!) if there even is anyone who links up…
  •  Share on all your social sites with #hashtaghumpday
  • Have fun! #hashtagtheshitoutofeverything #whocaresifitsarealhashtag


So I went up to my university this past weekend for my sorority's centennial celebration. It was a humbling and amazing event, and I can't even begin to explain how blessed I feel to be a part of something so much bigger than myself. There was more love, memories and dirty songs shared than I could have ever hoped for. It was the largest alumni reunion the University has ever had. Basically Kappa rocks #wearethekappagirls #kkgforever #betakappa100 

Ok so that first one wasn't a confession really but this one is. I am really proud of myself for being back in my college town, surrounded by sorority sisters at my favorite bars, and not over doing it. I think I'm finally a grown up #justtherightamountofbeer #andshinanegans #withnohangovers

And even though it was an awe inspiring experience to share Kappa with 500 other returning women, oddly enough I still felt a bit left out. Some of the women I'm closest with didn't make the trip and while I love all the girls I spent the weekend with I could help but feel like the 11th wheel a bit and definitely not one of the cool kids #triednottoleitphaseme #lonerpartyofone 

Overall though it was an amazing weekend, and a beautiful one at that. Spring and summer, here we come! #shadesfordays #ifonlyihadthebikinibody

I feel extremely sad that this is all I really have to share with you. Are you as bored with me these days as I am with myself? I really need a kick in the ass. Or to at least make a decision about this space. I know I keep saying that over and over, but it's way too hard to let it go, and even harder to make it work. We shall see what wins out #myvoteisfortheblog #letshopeicanmakeithappen

And now, since I was stupid and started watching our full set of Planet Earth blu-rays, I'm too distracted to give you much else. But hey, this stuff is educational right? #babyanimals #planetearthforthewin

Happy Wednesday folks!

  1. Sounds like a wonderful trip back to your alma mater for a special celebration!! I wish Chicago got the whole spring memo because it's been storm after storm :/!

  2. Is that a bird in the last GIF?! If so, creepy! Tee hee!

    Sounds like a nice weekend & thumbs up to not drinking too much! Awhoo hoo! :)

  3. Still with you on the struggling to blog thing. I always feel like I am not one of the cool kids. Sounds like a super fun weekend!

  4. That bird gif is totally freaky. And I feel ya on the 11th wheel at the sorority party... I went back for our founder's day a few years ago and, while everyone was really nice and welcoming, I just knew that college was behind me and I wasn't coming back without my close-knit sorority sisters. (One lives in AZ so that'd be a stretch. Haha.)

  5. DON'T LEAVE ME! I've been terrible at this whole blogging thing lately too but I'm going to try REALLY hard to put an honest effort in this month

  6. I love the Planet Earth stuff- Jared totally got me hooked on those! :) I say keep blogging! Whenever you're here, we will read!!

  7. Soooo the centennial celebration reminds me of Drive Me Crazy!!!! Haha :) You totally gotta keep up with the blogging because you would be missed. You are a cool kid here!

  8. I have a cousin who graduated from Ole Miss last year, and she was a Kappa. All the girls that she became friends with from her sorority are really lovely girls. Glad you had fun!

  9. awww not bored, please don't leave us :( hopefully you can find something that works. we'll be here no matter what ;) i love when i drink responsibly haha at least, i love it the next day when my hangover isn't horrible!

  10. I haven't blogged in quite a while or even really read a blog now that I can no longer sneak that in a work. But like you I just can't seem to let it go fully and always think about it (when I'm at work it seems and just can't do anything about it) so I haven't given it up just yet. I agree with Erin, keep blogging whenever you can and we'll be here.
