Graduation parties are coming to a bittersweet end at the close of this week. I laugh at the fact that our grade was worried we wouldn't have that many when there were close to four every weekend. The girls had even more crowded calendars than the boys with our afternoons filled with teas and our mornings with brunches. Here's a look at the past few weeks festivities:
A group of about 15 girls (mostly future Longhorns) threw a dance party at the firehouse in the heights. Here they are with the DJ.
Mary Caroline was one of the hostesses and she was having quite a good time. She even got on the mic at the end of the party demanding "one more song!"
Makenna and I at the party. Photo credits from this party go to her!
We had a couple of crawfish boils in honor of the height of crawfish season, and Annie and CC (pictured cousins with their adorable personalized bibs) kicked it off.
Here are the boys with their bibs ready to dig into the Rajun Cajun.
Me with Lauren and Mimi--future TCU horned frogs!
Several boys threw a ranch party on a Sunday afternoon. There were horses, motorcycles to drive, a live performer, and JCI to eat. Here are the hosts dressed in typical Texas boy gear.
Both Haley and Becca will be in Plan II with me next year. Haley is from Kinkaid and will be right next door to me in my dorm at Hardin next year and Becca will be right across the pool!

Me and Sarah...another longhorn!
Lana hosted an all girls dinner on during our last week of school when seniors had nothing better to do but lounge around and count down the days until school was out. We went to Brio for an excellent meal followed by indulging in Crave cupcakes at her house.
Claire, Dani and Lana. Almost every attendee had some sort of affiliation with journalism whether it be the yearbook staff, newspaper, or even the Stratford YB staff.
Me and Lana. Definitely being framed in my dorm. I better see it in your Honors dorm, Lan!
Summer is finally here. And I couldn't be happier with how everything is ending. After all these celebrations with friends, relatives from out of town are starting to arrive and it's time to begin the family festivities now that graduation weekend is finally here.
