lifestyle + pre-grad fun

Hahahahahaha I'm graduating college today.

I would really rather not do this. I've said this many times and I really don't think I've said it enough.

My brother got to Wake on Friday night, and my parents came on Saturday. Basically this weekend has been comprised of cleaning out my dorm room, taking more pictures than prom and high school graduation combined, and trying not to cry every time someone says the word "graduation." 

Saturday morning a bunch of my sorority sisters and I took pictures in our white grad dresses while prancing around campus. Honestly getting a camera for Christmas was the best thing that could have ever happened considering the pictures this semester have been better than any I've taken ever. 

I wore my Lilly Pulitzer pineapple dress, because pineapples. I'm actually wearing a different white Lilly dress to the real graduation ceremony (#princess) so I'm glad I'm getting to take two different sets of pictures.

Yesterday morning we had Baccalaureate, which was surprisingly great. Our speaker was amazing and it was short and sweet. 

After Baccalaureate my friend group had a grad party at our favorite hipster Mexican restaurant, The Porch. Guys this place is my fave. If y'all are ever in lovely Winston-Salem, go to the Porch. We basically rented out their outside area and had a Mexican fiesta buffet with an open bar. There were seven families there and I had such a great time!

Wish me luck that I don't fall in my wedges while picking up my diploma, and that I have a decent day despite A) moving out B) saying goodbye to all my friends and C) freaking not being a college student anymore. Cheers!
