Hello, hello! Here's some photos of my week in review, starting with last Thursday, when we had Erin's bachelorette dinner at Julep! Lot's of fun and the food was amazing, as always.
Erin and I.
On Saturday, me and 5 of my closest friends (Sital, Amanda, Ashlee, Erin, and Katherine) headed to the beach for a last hoorah/bachelorette/graduation trip. We had an excellent time despite the fact that it stormed horribly for a full day. Sadly, this was one of two pictures I have from the weekend! Ashlee took a ton of pictures, so hopefully I can get some from her to show you guys! We had fun, I promise.
Then, yesterday, I went to a shower for Erin at lunch, but only a little so that I could eat lunch at Bravo! with my mom, sister, and Memaw. I ordered the hot bruschetta appetizer for lunch and it was divine! I can't quit thinking of it!! It was in a brown sauce and I've been scouring the internet to find a recipe that seems similar. I'm thinking there may be balsamic vinegar or Worchestershire sauce?
Across the way from Bravo! is an health food store called Best of Health. When my mom was in high school, it was the place to go for real frozen yogurt. We popped in and sure enough they still make it! I got vanilla (the small - maybe 3 or 4 oz?) with pumpkin seeds.
Today, my friend Maggie and I toured apartments and went to the opening of a cupcake place in Flowood called Gigi's. We were their first customers EVER! Felt pretty good.
I got the peanut butter cupcake (chocolate with PB icing). Awesome!!
Somewhere in there I also officially graduated (though I didn't walk and from the stories of some of my friends, I'm glad I wasn't at that 3+ hour graduation on the football field) and found out I finished with a 4.0 semester!!
Hello there! Things have been non-stop around here. I finished college (!!!), finished my internship, went camping, started my temp job, had a fun dinner with friends, got offered a full time where I was temp-ing, ACCEPTED the job, and just got finished with a Bachelorette party with all of my friends! Let's back up to camping.
We went to a state park on Grenada Lake, which was fascinating! It's a man-made lake that was created by damming two rivers near where they intersected. This like is huge, but there are pretty impressive edges (they seemed like cliffs to me) that are composed entirely of layer of dried clay. The layers crack and crumble so easily, it looked like seashells.
While we were touring the grounds, we found a small cemetery with some of the most interesting engravings. This one had a ginko leaf!
We also found this scary critter hanging out on the wall behind our trash can. He has no tail!!
This gives you a better view of the beach. It was amazing.
This week, I went to a fun get together with a group of friends of mine at Rachel's house. She got really into it and everything was so wonderful. She even went to thrift stores and got interesting cups and saucers for each place setting. Each girl got to choose which setting they wanted to take home.

The food was great- green been bundles (with turkey bacon and Italian dressing, not French), quiche, and fruit.
All of us together. (From left) Me, Emily, Rachel, Kaylan, Vic.
So fun and festive! The rest of the week I have been working, working, working!! It's definitely taken some getting used to the 8-5 and I'm still not there. It's hard to be at work all day. I'm so used to interships where I would come in at 8 and leave at 2 or 3, so staying til 5 is different. One more day of work and then I head to the beach with my friends for a few days! I can't wait to get away and relax.
Hello, hello! It's been a while, but I've been BUSY. This week is my last week of college EV-AH. I've got some things + a final due tomorrow night and an exam + paper due Thursday and then I am done done done.
That Friday I have my last day at my internship and then off for Mother's Day camping with the family! So excited!
I also have a fun temp job lined up for the week after school. I'm not trying to think too hard about it, but there is a possibility of a full time job. I've also had a couple of other leads on jobs and had interviews, so I will hopefully have a job soon after I graduate!
I've also got Erin's bachelorette party and a last hoorah! trip planned to the beach, oil permitting. We have all decided if the oil does come ashore, we are going to get trained and volunteer to clean up the beach and/or animals. Either way, we will make the most out of it.
