Weekend Recap & Planning A Road Trip!

I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend! This weekend I went home to Jacksonville and spent it with friends and family! 

Saturday~ I went over to my cousin Brandi's to visit and see her newborn baby boy! He was born last Tuesday and I was super excited to get to see him this weekend! His name is Lucas and he is absolutely adorable!! 

Saturday night~ I went to a friend's graduation party and it was great to hang out with all of our old friends, it was a great time! 

Sunday~ I woke up and drove to Jacksonville beach where I met up with some friends and hung out. It was absolutely perfect beach weather! I definitely miss the beach! 

Monday~I went shopping out at the St. John's Town Center with my parents and went to lunch at The Cheesecake Factory. Yum! After spending the afternoon at the town center I then had to drive back to Tallahassee. All in all, I had a very good weekend! 

So this coming weekend I will be departing on a 5 day road trip! I am super excited!! Details of the road trip and destinations will come in another post a little later this week! 

I hope you all have a great week!

Wow! Have I Been MIA or What?

I haven't posted a blog or even been on too read any posts in 12 days! Yikes! I feel bad! I thought that since I have graduated and no longer have classes or studying that I would have plenty of time to blog...I was wrong! Things have been crazy since graduation! I have started working more and other unexpected things have popped up left and right! But I am back! I am ready to get back to commenting and posting! I hope y'all haven't forgotten about me! 

How have y'all been? What have I missed since I have been gone? Any of you have any links to any posts I should read from your blogs? 
Please share with me! I need to catch up ASAP!!

Catching Up!

I have been so caught up in all the graduation hoopla over the past 2 weeks, so I am sorry that I have been so bad at posting at commenting lately! 

This past week and weekend were awesome! I had a very short week at work...only had to work til Wednesday! Since Wednesday was of course Cinco de Mayo, my friend and I went out to El Jalisco to celebrate! We had such a great time! Here are some pictures from the evening...

Then on Thursday I packed up and drove home to Jacksonville to help my mom set up for my graduation party on Saturday afternoon! Thursday and Friday were spent running around town, cleaning, cooking, and setting up for the party!

Saturday was party day!! The party started at 4pm and we had about 50-60 people show up! The party was a ton of fun and a complete success! Thanks to my awesome mother, we had sooo much delicious food! She cooked almost everything! We had a delicious fajita bar and other Mexican goodies! It was all so good! Here are some pictures from early on during the party....

Sunday was obviously Mother's Day! We had all the family back over for round 2 and for leftovers from the party. We had a great time! Then I drove back to Tallahassee. 

I had such a fabulous weekend and I hope you all did too! Hope y'all have a great week!!

I Am Officially An FSU Alum!!

I am now officially a graduate of THE Florida State University!! Ahhhh so weird! So sorry I haven't blogged in a few days, but I have been super busy with graduation stuff! I really can't believe that I am no longer a college student! So strange feeling! Thought I would fill y'all in on what has been going on and share with y'all some pictures from Saturday's graduation!

Friday: I had the day off from work, which was nice! My parents and grandmother came into town around dinner time and we went to dinner at Bonefish!

Saturday: GRADUATION DAY!! Was up before 6am in order to be ready to leave by 7:30am. Got to the Civic Center a little after 8 and graduation started right at 9am! It was so surreal to be didn't really hit me that I was graduating from college until the President told us to stand and turn our tassels and then declared us as "graduates." Then it hit me. I started to tear up! It hit me that the 4 best years of my life were coming to a close! Thank you FSU, you did me well! :)

{Don't I look happy to be a grad? hehe.}

After the ceremony we went to lunch at Gordos and then went back to my place and I opened gifts and we had cupcakes!

Then we went back to campus to Wescott to take pictures by the fountain before my parents and grandmother left to head back to Jacksonville!

Later on I met up with friends to continue the celebration at Monk's for food and drinks!

All in all, it was a fantastic day that I will never forget!! Thanks to everyone who made it wonderful!

The winner of my first giveaway is Annie! Yayy! Thanks to everyone who entered! I hope to do another giveaway sometime this summer!

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!
