"With each word, your tenderness grows"

This past Sunday was the start of Big/Little week! I am so happy with my incoming little, and cannot wait to tell her who I am!!! I have been getting guys to deliver her baskets every night! I think she is loving it! I even had someone deliver her favorite ice cream tonight! I thought I would share this stool with you! I made her a stool by purchasing an unfinished wooden stool from Michaels. I got a ton of different paints, and decided it would be adorable to put her monogram on top because as you all know, I'm obsessed with anything monogrammed. I did this freehand, but I'm sure I could have found some stencils to do it. I did a few layers of pink paint, then I did a few layers of green paint for her initials and then coated the entire stool with a sparkly/shiny coat. It really turned out great, and I'm sure my little will love it! I think it would also be really cute in a child's bathroom or room! You can paint it any color to math with any room!I also added a crown to each side of the "feet" becuase the crown is one of our symbols! I am so excited to give this to her! If you were in a sorority, what was your favorite thing about it?
Have a great day!
Yours,
sCe

We had Mothers/Daughters (G-Phi-B), and I loved getting to make gifts for my daughter! It was such a fun week, especially revealing at the end!

You are too cute and remind me of one of my good friends/sisters from college. You look similar, same personality and she's from Pittsburgh and loves the Steelers :) My favorite things about being in a sorority is the friendships I've made. I graduated 2 yrs ago but I'm still really close with my sorority family. There's a special bond between a big and little that's different from any other friendship :)
