Sorority Girl

In a few weeks, I'll be giving a little talk to members of a local college sorority.

I don't know all the details yet, I'm sure they will require me to wear a pair of tiny shorts with Greek letters stamped across the buttocks.


I have never stepped foot in a sorority house, but I've heard they have dress codes.

While I am excited about what I'm going to talk about, what I'm really looking forward to is showing off my thighs to a 150 twenty year-olds.

All women over the age of 30 look really good in short-shorts. I am no exception.

In anticipation of this event, I have decided to push my hotness to the next level. I'm already a 10, as most mothers of four young children are, but my husband thinks I'm capable of more.

"This is a chance for you to get and stay healthy," he told me as he gestured toward the treadmill.

Yeah. That's gonna happen.

I too am a huge fan of short shorts! Rock it out sister!

I have a pair of pink short shorts with my school ("TECH") written across the fanny, instead of greek letters.

Just be sure to invite Frank

Your husband actually said that? Brave man.

I have those EXACT shorts. While they don't look quite as nice as they did while I spent time in good ol' GphiB I think they served me well. You rock those short shorts. However, I'm sure anything you chose to wear will be acceptable. No dress code in my sorority!

maybe it will be a pool party and you get to wear your BATHING SUIT!

Oh my gosh... you crack me up! Seriously, there are mornings I dread getting out of bed. Then I think, "I wonder if Jana has posted yet," and I'm up and at it. Thanks for making my mornings bearable!

Just a little tip from a fellow thirty-something mother of four: SPANX.
You can get them at Nordstrom-all different types. Get the nude kind and they'll never know you're wearing them under your shorts.

Anything with words on your but should be banned, just saying.

Looks like a workout just to dig the treadmill out...wait, are you even sure it is under there?

You should pull that treadmill out, I hear they make great 'extra closet' space.

I had purple short shorts with TECH in yellow lettrs. I don't remember the size but it was a single digit number. *Sigh*

Love it! I recently started a blog about my journey to happiness. Your blog makes me happy. I feel so much more "normal" when reading it and it makes me giggle. I placed a button on my blog linking to yours. Stop by and visit me sometime.

Hilarious!!! But skip the treadmill girl, you don't need it. If you own short shorts, and your over 30, then I say rock on. But please do all the "single ladies" everywhere a huge favor and iron OUR phone number instead of Sorority Signs across your badonkadonks.

short shorts AND a cami...no bra needed of course...that's what a Mom really impresses in :)

Leanne said...

Any place that requires one to put words/greek letters on their behind is not a place anyone over twenty should go. At least not while sober.

Adrianne said...

I hope your husband was joking when he said those things, and even then...

Anne said...

Do they even make Spanx for short shorts!? I didn't look good in shorts with writing on the butt when I was IN college.

TexasPQ said...

LOL I was a Gamma Phi Beta! I couldn't believe those shorts. Too bad one could spell it out across my backside now . . . no need for initials!

The Smith's Bree, Shawn. Jake and Jonas said...

Yes! Yes! Yes! This is so awesome!

Kristen said...

Oh those GPHI butt-shorts- I had a pair but always was the prude who wore them OVER running pants or leggings. :-) Have fun!

Wonderful Day Weddings said...

Bwhahhahahahaha. Enough said (if you are a mom over 30.) To all the 21 year olds hoping to be a mom someday, you are awesome in jeans and hoodies.
