details: black and white dress (aqua, bloomingdale's), black flats (payless)

so i had my grad portraits done today at 'the picture people' in the mall. it was actually really fun and the photographer was really nice. she even let me take jumping pictures!! haha. unfortunately, those ones didn't come out as well, but that's okay because i ended up liking some of the others (which was good, because i get super self-conscious when other people take my picture. and then they put it up on that big 'ol computer screen so you and everyone else can view them. embarrassing.). anyway, here's a little peek:

i was too lazy to scan them, but i'll put them up later!

i'll be sending out my grad announcements soon and i'm really excited because it seems so official now. less than a month until commencement! crazy. i thought high school went by fast--college seemed to fly by even faster.

in other news, my grandma "lola" rose turned 82 yesterday! i baked her cupcakes (another fancy boxed mix that mom got me from 'homegoods'. check out luxe cake mixes). it was german chocolate cake with toasted coconut frosting and chocolate coconut sprinkles. i'm not a big fan of coconut, but this one tasted really good!

hope everyone's week has been amazing! only 7 more followers until i hit 200. :) thanks for following!
