After some feedback from readers, I've decided to bring back Friday Faves to share some of my favorite things I've seen or read around the web. Since these past two weeks have been dedicated to Texas A&M sorority recruitment, I wanted to share a few of my favorite sites and stores for sorority women at Texas A&M.

I cannot emphasize enough how sorority recruitment will be one of the best weeks of your college life. Some people beg to differ. You'll hear horror stories about crying and dropping out, but ignore them. I believe the people with the horror stories didn't know how to make the most out of their sorority recruitment. They went in with all the wrong expectations and completely fell apart.
The Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale is pretty much the most amazing sale at the end of summer. If you're anything like me and love a good deal, you were up this morning before 7:00 AM refreshing your page multiple times until you could access the site.

I wish I could sugarcoat the process of sorority recruitment at Texas A&M, but then I'd be lying to y'all. Don't get me wrong, this is going to be one of the most amazing weeks of your college career. You are going to meet so many outstanding women in each sorority as well as other women going through recruitment with you. However, this is Texas and you're going to be outside for a great deal of the time. Our weather and the asphalt are not going to be kind to you. You definitely need to prepare for that.

In my previous post, I shared outfit ideas for Go Greek Days, Philanthropy Day, and Bid Day. While I love those days, my favorite days have to be Skit Night and Pref (Preference) Night because you get to be all dressed up. Also, these last two days means recruitment is almost over and you're that much closer to finding your home! (I was Recruitment Vice President while in my chapter, so I have an unhealthy love for recruitment and home finding. It's exciting!)

Long long ago when I first went through formal recruitment at Texas A&M, I was so lost. I had no idea what to expect, no idea what to wear, and no idea about sorority life in general. (#freshmanprobs?)

I love Grey's Anatomy, but Meredith... should we really be teaching women that saying, "Pick me. Choose me. Love me." is a good way to get someone to be in a relationship with you? I know this is fictional, McDreamy couldn't decide if he should stay with his wife Addison, and he loved both of them. I know these facts, but still.

Some days I intend to be super prepared, start off my day super early and accomplish a lot. Today was one of those days and naturally, in my effort to be super early to work, I forgot my camera to add my pictures to my computer for the original (and awesome) blog post I was going to post today. I'm in between getting my Internet installed this week so I can only post my blogs when I'm at work or when I go steal wifi from Starbucks. I know y'all never would have noticed, but I just wanted to say this is a really really really good reason to have back up blog posts already ready to go. (Just a word of advice to other new bloggers.)
One of my favorite places in all of Aggieland during the summer is La Bodega. In College Station, I feel like there are two feelings about La Bodega: you either love it or hate it. Personally, I love it. I've never been dissatisfied with anything I've ordered there. A lot of people complain that their tacos aren't like baja tacos in California and not like Tex-Mex tacos you find in Texas. I don't care about those things because once you eat one, you know that even though they don't fall under either of those categories of tacos, they're still pretty damn good. Now, are they the best tacos you can get in Bryan and College Station? No. But that's another post for another time.

So everyone has been talking about this Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and I think that's great. I love sales. I'm all about the discount life. But I've never shopped at Nordstrom before. (I know, don't freak out.) My little has been sending me pictures of awesome buys she's been finding and to be honest, they just haven't made me excited as much as this sale at J.Crew.
