My graduation party was yesterday and it was a lot of fun! The weather was basically cooperative - we were able to swim for a while, but then it did start to rain. However, it didn't ruin the entire day or anything, so it was all good.

Pictures:

Me with Jen and her fiance Brian. They were telling the story of how they got engaged and it was really funny! I love them, and they're a fun couple!

We all started out by the pool as people arrived and went swimming. My cute dress, blown out hair and makeup went by the wayside as we all swam. After swimming a while, it began to rain, so we all went to go eat the food. People were in various parts of the house, eating and mingling and it had actually stopped raining too, so some were even outside. Then, it began to drizzle again, so my dad set up the shuffle board in the family room, and we played a few rounds down there. I tried to get pictures of everyone that was there, but I know I didn't. Some of my friends' parents and neighbors were there as well which was really nice. It was a lot of fun!

I'm so thankful for my friends - I had a great time and I'm glad that everyone came!

After the party, Jess and my sister went to cat sit a cat, and then Jess came back over and we went in the pool again at night. Then, we ate cupcakes and drank wine. Soon after that, I fell asleep. haha.



This morning I was out by the pool from 10 - 12 since the weather was nice. I went swimming with my father and Alyson and started Harry Potter 4. I just feel so out of it today. Planning a party definitely takes a lot of work! Yesterday morning was a lot of food prep work, and most of the food totally went. I forgot to put out the brownies I made though. Oops. I mean, we have a lot of leftovers cause there was A LOT of food. But, it's not like, an insane amount of leftovers. People ate a lot, which makes me happy! :)
