Big news!

It's time for another edition of The Vintage Apple's "Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday!" From now on, I'm also going to combine my Wednesday post with another link-up, "What I'm Loving Wednesday" from This Kind of Love, because I usually only pin stuff I love anyway, right? :) So here goes!

google

First, there is something specific that I am loving this week. Last Thursday, I found out I had been chosen as a 2012-2013 Leadership Consultant for Alpha Delta Pi sorority, and on Monday I got to tell everyone! A Leadership Consultant (or "LC," as we more often call them) is a first-year alumna of Alpha Delta Pi who travels around the country helping collegiate chapters and colonies with officer trainings, programming, recruitment, rituals and the like. I'm super excited about this job because it combines two of my favorite things—leadership development and travel—with, of course, ample opportunities for social media! I hope you'll follow along with my travels on this blog when I start the job this summer!

I am also loving the overwhelming amount of support I received from my friends and family on Monday. Between my birthday and the public announcement of my new job, my phone literally died at work from all the texts, calls, Tweets and Facebook posts/mentions I was getting. So thank you, thank you!

And finally, on to the pins! After news like that, how could I share anything except pins from my very own Alpha Delta Pi board (and the official Alpha Delta Pi Pinterest account, of course)? Enjoy!

A girl in my cohort here at A&M consulted for ADPi for two years before working for a few years and now being in grad school. She met her partner while consulting haha

Love combining the two link ups. Your sorority looks like a blast - I love being a Kappa Delta. I have been thinking of reading 11/22/63 and was happy to see your review! My Pinteresting addition this week is for my fellow bibliophiles. :o)

That's awesome! I was going to ask what her name is, but if she's been out for a few years I probably don't know her. I've actually been considered an SA degree, so this should help me decide! :)

How exciting!! I was (am) an ADPi too! One of my friends was an LC last year and loved it. I'm sure it will be an incredible experience! Hope you have a great day :)
