Here are some photo highlights of my high school graduation!!!
So my high school was really competitive (and dumb in my opinion) and we walked across the stage for graduation in order of our class rank. I won’t say what my ranking was, but this boy was one number below–in a good way, does that make sense?– me; so we stood next to each other. [Actually, we had made some sort of bet I think at the beginning of our senior year that he was going to try to beat my GPA haha]
I had a graduation “non-party.” I was adamantly against having a grad party. Graduation parties turned into a stressful event. There would be like 6 different ones within a three hour time period, and everyone was hopping in the car, delivering presents, saying hi, and then off to the next locale. I didn’t want ANYTHING, but of course, Soccer Mom did not like this idea. We ended up just inviting our very close family friends and family, no high school friends though. It was super low key.
My mom spent a lot of hours working on this Lilly table runner. Actually kind of funny story: See that yellow thing in the very back of the picture? That was an AP Physics project (an epic electric house). Against my mother’s vision, it became part of the center piece since my group had yet to turn it in haha.
And onto Graduation Day:
We wore black gowns (my high school’s colors were Black and Gold) and black shoes were required. I knew I was going to be taking a bunch of pictures without the gown on and I was not about to have to deal with “shoe wardrobe changes.” So, black dress it was!!! I actually already had this black dress from a Progressive Dinner, so I didn’t even need to buy a new one!
We went to the Palm for a family dinner after the ceremony. Of course, wardrobe change. My dad wore a matching Lilly tie!!! This is one of my favorite pictures to date. I’ve used a cropped version for multiple avatars if you remember!
Okay Sissy, the attention can go back to you now!
