Project Pumpkin 2017

This year I didn't fully commit a whole day to Project Pumpkin like last year. I would have liked to but last year I did that and I remember having the craziest and most stressful day. I decided to not do that to myself again. 
Instead of walking the children around to all the tables, I opted to stay at the KD table and help little children decorate cookies!
For those of you who don’t know, Project Pumpkin is a campus wide event where every organization and department set up a table on the upper quad and kids from all over the county come and trick or treat in a safe and fun environment! 
This campus tradition was started because Wake students realized that the surrounding areas aren’t so safe for little kids to go trick-or-treating. And what a better place to bring them, then to the bubble of Wake Forest!
It was so fun and so cute! And I was able to do a half hour shift and then leave and then come back without any big responsibilities.
I wish I could've stayed longer but I had my chorus concert last night so I had to get ready. 
I think it's really annoying that there are other events that go on the same day or night of a big campus wide event.
It's a real shame because we can't all focus on the most important event, the event where we raise money or the most awareness and the WHOLE school and community gets involved, and instead we have to balance it with events that don't necessarily impact the whole community.
Not that I'm saying that our chorus concert isn't important, because it is and I love performing but I think project pumpkin trumps chorus concert. 

But all in all, both were a success!
For PP I wore my pink tutu over my clothes. It was a very Elisabeth outfit! It was great! I thoroughly enjoyed dressing like a 5 year old!
And then I changed into my gorgeous new choral gown that I bought over the summer with my mom.
My chorus prof said nothing too tight or revealing.... so my dress is tight but it is super super elegant and glamorous and I can't wait to wear this dress everyday over spring break when the chorus and I are singing in SPAIN!!!!
I'm so excited!!!
2018 is a big year of travel for me!
Get ready for some amazing travel diaries!!

Onto my class outfit:
I've had this shirt since early high school, and I think it is time to let it go.
It's not that it doesn't fit me anymore or that I don't like it anymore, it's just that I've had it for too long and it's time.
I guess it's a blessing that I'm not growing anymore (height wise, and I hope to stay waist wise the same) and my mom doesn't have to buy me a whole new wardrobe every season, but at the same time, because I am not growing, I accumulate too many clothes!
Once I get home for Christmas break I will be breaking out my Poshmark account again and start selling some of the beautiful clothes that I don't really wear anymore or that are too big for me!
