Viva Las (Delta) Vegas

My favorite thing to participate in with my sorority is Greek Sing. I look forward to it all year. For those of you who don't know, it's basically a dance competition between the Fraternities and the Sororities. A LOT of time and money is put into this event and all the money goes to Chi Omega's philanthropy (Make a Wish Foundation). It is so great to know that while I'm having an amazing time with my sorority sisters, I am also making a difference in someone else's life.

Last year, we won overall with our Video Game theme and knew we'd have to doing something fabulous to top it this year. We decided our theme for Greek Sing was going be Vegas! I was thrilled with this idea and fell in love with it from the beginning. This year, Greek Sing was earlier than usual and we only had 2 weeks to pull everything together. I was nervous about this since we've never had such a short amount of time to prepare for this event.

I am obsessed with Greek Sing and look forward to it every year. I have never been a dancer or a cheerleader in the past, but Greek Sing is so much fun and the entire chapter participates. Unfortunately, due to my class schedule, I couldn't dance and had to be a character instead. I decided to be Elvis because I thought it would be the most fun to dress up like him. I had so much fun wearing my costume and playing the part (if you can't tell by the pictures). This year was even more important to me than ever because it is my last year to participate in Greek Sing. I also have a little cousin (Olivia) who is in the sorority with me. Every year she has attended Greek Sing to cheer me on and this was year she was actually getting to perform with me! It was really special and something I'll never forget. My family also knows how important this event is and they always come to support me too.

I wanted to win more than anything!!! But I thought the odds were slim since we were overall champions last year. Of course I thought we had the best theme, costumes, music, etc. but you just never know how the judges are going to react to everything. After the judges had announced the top sororities and I didn't hear our name I was really nervous...there was only one thing left to win and it's the biggest award of all...Overall Champions. And finally, I hear them say: "And the 2011 Greek Sing Overall Champions is...DELTA, DELTA, DELTA"!!! I went crazy!!! I couldn't believe it. We all ran on stage to claim the trophy and take our picture. It was the best feeling ever and it was something I wanted so badly (I seriously can't stress how important this event is to our chapter, me and how much we all love it)! I couldn't believe we were back-to-back champions! I'm so proud of all my Delta Sisters!!!
Even though my Steelers didn't win a championship this weekend I wasn't too down about it. I guess it was because we won Greek Sing and I was still in awe over it all - lol! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed the game!

Love Always,
