This weekend was so much fun. Because yesterday was senior skip day too, that made my weekend into a 3-day weekend, and nothing is better than spending a sunny Monday in May with all of your best friends instead of in a classroom.
Friday was a wonderful way to kick off the weekend. I didn't go to school until noon because I went to breakfast with Carin after my dentist appointment, and then we went to the cutest new boutique (The Navy Knot, seriously how cute is that name?!) where I got Jack a bowtie in his school colors for his birthday. Carin and I also coincidentally, as per usual, were twinning in our college shirts and had to snap a pic.
Friday I meant to go to my friend's boyfriend's birthday party, but by the time I got home on Friday all I really wanted to do was sleep! So, leave it to my mom and I to make ourselves mac and cheese and fall asleep at 8:45. I'm not complaining though, I definitely needed those twelve hours to recuperate.
On Saturday I spent the majority of my afternoon at work making the cutest little cupcake flags for an event we were donating to, but doing all 350 of those took forever! I left work and picked up EJ (you might recognize her from this post) and we had such a fun night on Saturday. We went to the grocery store together and then went back to my house where we made ourselves the yummiest dinner ever (recipe coming soon!). Next year she is going to be rooming with one of my close friend's from school, so she came over too and the three of us hung out!
Sunday morning was spent sipping tea and nibbling on croissants with Elizabeth before I went to church and met back up with her to head to Carin's graduation! It was such an exciting celebration, and of course, Carin looked fabulous!
The whole ceremony was so lovely, and it's so cute how all of the girls got yellow bouquets for their school colors.
On my way home from the graduation, naturally I had to stop at J. Crew, where the most exciting thing happened. Someone stopped me in the store and asked if I was the blonde prep. OMG, I was literally geeking! It was kind of funny because I was probably ten times more excited than she was, but it was such a cool experience to have that happen!
I got home, quick changed, and then my friend picked me up to head to our French teacher's house for our senior French dinner! We had some hors d'oeuvres and then drove downtown to the restaurant where I had delicious mussels. At this point we had pretty much just established that Monday was actually senior skip day, so an impromptu sleepover followed dinner. This worked out incredibly well because Jack's birthday was yesterday, so we woke up at 5 AM and drove all the way to his house (45 minutes away from my friend's house!) to bring him donuts before school for his birthday.
It was such a fun little surprise, and I think his mom thought I was crazy for how excited I was!
We then drove back to my house, took a little nap to recover from the early rise, and then five more of my friends came over so we could all hang out and spend skip day together. Yesterday was a beautiful day so we ended up going to the park near my house and walking around and exploring the trails.
Overall, it was such a fun weekend filled with all of my friends that I'm so lucky to have! Days like these make me realize how wonderful the past four years have truly been, and although it's all wrapping up, I will have so many memories to cherish and so many people to look forward to making even more memories with this summer and beyond.
