Frolic 2017

Congrats class of 2017!!
You did it!
Welcome to the beautiful world of college!
You're going to love it!

On Friday, the class of 2017 graduated from my high school.
It's crazy to think that a year ago Saturday, June 24, I graduated from the same school.
I remember every detail from my graduation.
I remember how perfect my makeup looked despite the tears and the heat.
I remember finding my family in the audience.
I remember walking up to receive my diploma, having my last name mispronounced and getting a diploma case from the wrong school....
Yep, you heard that right.
And finally throwing my cap off into the air!
You can read all about my high school graduation HERE!
It was my biggest accomplishment at that point in my life. 
Now I have moved on to my dream school and am loving it more than I ever thought I would.

I still have some friends in the year below me, so I went and saw some of them sitting on the bleachers with their caps and gowns in the heat in front of my Alma mater.
It was a very weird seeing another class graduate.
I stood and watched for a few minutes.

But my main goal of visiting my old school was to see the Frolic.
As I explained last year, after graduation my school hosts a HUGE and very expensive party in the gym for every new alumni to go to so they don't drink and drive.
The school completely transforms the gym into something magical.
My year had the theme of Bikini Bottom, which was a little weak compared to this year's theme.
I have lots and lots of photos from last year's Frolic HERE!
This year's theme was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!
It was sooo over the top and amazing.
The gym was covered in candy as were the bathrooms.
It looked so fun and I'm a little sad that that wasn't my theme.

But that being said, I am so glad to have graduated when I did.
I am so glad to be at Wake Forest and I cannot wait to go back!
I am counting down the days to when I can see my beautiful campus again.

I feel a little bad for the class that just graduated because it was sooo HUMID on Friday.
It was hot when I graduated too, but not as bad as this.
It even started raining during graduation this year.
If I was actually graduating this year, I would have melted.
And I was melting just being outside. 
So imagine having a long polyester navy blue robe on....
Yeah, that's what I thought.
I opted for a full head to toe linen outfit on Friday, to resist the heat.
