Sigma Theta Tau

 I had the privilege of being inducted into the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau, Friday night. So I totally didn't think it was a super big deal, but it ended up being kinda special! (which my sister so sweetly wrote about...have I mentioned I have the best sister in the world? I do).

The first sign of that was the fancy table settings and purple theme color. Doesn't that mean royalty? ;)

My sister and mom joined J and I. It was fun to have them all there. My mom zoomed up straight from an all-day conference, and my sister rushed over after a final. We all got stuck in traffic. And everyone was still smiling.

Too bad we never took a picture all 4 of us. I totally forgot. But I appreciated you guys!!

Some of my nursing friends.

So I applied for a couple scholarships (and congratulations to our group for winning half of them! way to go Cohort 10!). And I won one of them! The Phyllis Esslinger Endowed Scholarship. I happen to think Phyllis Esslinger is the cat's pajamas (and she pretty much is in the nursing/history/academic world), so I was really honored.

Then we got our cords and certificates and our pins.

And all the nursing students.

What an honor. 

My first "society." 
I'm such a grown-up. :)
