This past weekend was full of celebration for my family and me. It all started on Thursday when I celebrated my boyfriend's 22nd birthday with him. We didn't do anything too crazy, just went bicycle shopping and had dinner at my house with my family.
Later that night, I found out that my oldest brother, Max, proposed to his girlfriend, Caitlin, of about 5 years. My parents knew he was planning it the whole time, but they kept it a secret from everyone else, so everyone was pretty shocked when they found out.
Friday was my graduation celebration. My parents threw me a party and charted out the Starlite Majesty, a big dining yacht out of Clearwater Beach. We had about 120 of my friends and my parents friends on board for a 3 hour dinner and dancing cruise. It was so much fun to have everyone there, and I know everyone had a great time.
I wore an off-white BCBGeneration lace dress that took forever to find. I couldn't decide if I wanted to wear a bold color for a statement necklace, or a bold colored shoe. I was literally shopping the morning of my party to try to decide and came across a bright pair of wedges from Aldo. They had my name written all over them, but they didn't have my size in that store. My boyfriend was nice enough to go pick up my size from a different store, so I paired them with a simple gold necklace. Unfortunately, he had to drive separately and was one of the last people there, so I had to make a shoe change once he brought them.
And last of our weekend celebration was Mother's Day. I got my mom a cooking pot she has been asking for and a UCF t-shirt. We also had an edible arrangement delivered to the house instead of flowers. It looks like a big bouquet of fruit, cut into different shapes - and we had chocolate covered strawberries delivered also.
Overall, these past two weeks are two weeks that I won't forget. Between graduation, birthdays, parties, engagements and moving out of my apartment in Orlando, it's been hectic, but definitely worth it - and also a lot of fun!
