those were the days....

via





I am so excited about today because its gonna be a blast from the past! So if you haven't heard I am teaming up with Chelsee from Southern Beauty GuideAmanda from Rhyme & Ribbons, and Kristyn from Carolina Fireflies to bring you the one-time link-up GREEK is GREEK!!! 








If you haven't guessed yet I was a Gamma Phi Beta. I rushed a few different sororities my freshmen year of college but Gamma Phi was the only one I wanted. When bid day came I was beyond excited when I got accepted into Gamma Phi....I knew I was in the right place. 








SO I know sororities & fraternities don't have the best reputations.....& I REALLY wish I could sit here & say you're wrong about what you've heard - but you're not. At least not my experience with them. Its exactly what you think it is...boys, parties, drinking & drama.




Just a few of my gamma phi shirts - the 'perfection' shirt is my bid day shirt



But it was fun....& if I had to do it all over again.....i would. 


Some of my favorite things about being in sorority were the themed parties, the sisterhood outings and of course my absolute favorite...the FORMALS!!


I don't know about you but I loved school dances. I loved prom so of course I was going to like the formals.


So I thought I would take you down memory lane a little bit with a few shots from my Gamma Phi days....& the pictures aren't that clear because well....when I started college there was no Facebook....gasp! We took photos using disposable cameras & had albums upon albums filled with pictures. 





Big/Little week is such an amazing & fun time while you're a pledge. My BIG spoiled me with goodies. This wasn't even the HALF of it. 







Every fall all the sororities played power puff against each other & the frats would coach us. Our brother fraternity was SAE {good times with those boys...} Of course we were always in pink.



in true Kelly fashion of course I went through many hair styles & colors through my college years


One of my very first sorority themed parties was the Hawaiian one.


I can't remember much after this photo...oops




ah formals. my favorite.....& I was lucky enough to not only go to my own formals but be invited to some fraternity formals as well. Everything you've heard about the craziness of formals....its true. I can't lie....i don't remember them all.



Just a few shots from a few different formals --->>






One of my last formals, which happen to be an SAE formal was my favorite. It was on a huge 3 story ship and we cruised around all night....still a little blurry but I remember we all had a blast. Plus I was obsessed with my dress....






& because I am a little bit of a clothes hoarder I still have that same red dress.....& it still fits 8 years later...what can I say, some things never go outta style.








Towards the end of my college career I got really close with our brother fraternity SAE...those were some of the best times of my life...it may be a blur, but it was fun.








I really wish I could show you the thousands of thousands....& I really mean thousands of photos I have but that's it for today....hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane. It seems like a lifetime ago to me.



Being a Gamma Phi Beta was a blast.....college was fun, i highly suggest it.

Whoop whoop! Gotta love sorority life ;)

Nicole said...

Ok, this officially became my favorite post you've ever done :) Fellow sorority girl here, Pi Beta Phi. My grandma was actually a Gamma Phi Beta too! She still does tons of stuff with her sorority sisters.

Looking at all of these formals pictures takes me back to college and I am SO thankful we didn't have FB back then! Well, at least until my senior year of college! So tonight I'm probably going to go home and bust out the ol' college albums and relive the glory days!! Thanks Kelli!

That was awesome! My college did not have Greek Life and sometimes I really feel like I missed out, everyone who did it seems like they had such a great time!

OMG I'm a Gamma Phi Beta too!!! Small world :) I loved being in a sorority. I met so many amazing people (and boys)and had so much fun! Love in TTKE!

Kristyn @ Carolina Fireflies said...

I love all your pictures!! I was not brave enough to post a lot of my formal ones! So glad we got to host this! xoxo

I know I'm a little late, but I just found out about this link-up through Treasure Tromp's blog post and I'm so excited to join in! I love meeting other Greek bloggers. :) I actually wrote a post about sorority women when I was traveling as a consultant for my sorority this past year that I think would be perfect, so I'll be sure to add your button to that post before I link up to get you the credit you deserve. :) Thanks for hosting!
