Week In My Life: Celebrating Graduation

Hi friends! It’s been a very busy past few weeks for me, but I was so very excited to make this post that I’ve been working on it as fast as I can. As of a week ago, I am officially a high school graduate!

That’s a very exciting statement for me, especially considering all the cancellations and postponements that had to happen before my class was actually able to graduate. I am so blessed to have been able to graduate and celebrate alongside friends and family. In this post, I want to outline my full week of fun, celebration, and achievement! Congratulations Class of 2020, we did it!

MONDAY

Monday was one of the 2 full days of work this week. After work, I met some of my very best friends at the school to take some cap and gown pics, as well as some shots in our future college gear. My friend’s sweet sister took our pictures, and they turned out so perfect!

This one reminds me of the Abbey Road album…
These girls are gonna do great things!!
Here you have two future Chargers, a future Vol, and a future Bulldog!

I know I will cherish having these pictures for the rest of my life!

TUESDAY

Tuesday was a big, big day. It was finally prom day!! After the uncertainty surrounding prom, it was so nice to finally be able to go and get dressed up and have fun!

My sister is my favorite photographer…

My friends and I went to the big prom for everyone hosted by some parents first, and then my core friend group got to come back to our own venue afterward to have a little afterparty. We got to laugh and catch up and had tons of fun!

Having a blast!

WEDNESDAY

Wednesday was probably the slowest day all week. My friends and I were worn out after prom and decided to just hang out at my friend’s house for most of the day.

At lunchtime, I had to go into town to attend a luncheon for a local scholarship that I won. It was so fun, and such an honor to be a scholarship recipient!

THURSDAY

Thursday was another full day of work, and I had trouble focusing all day because my family was going to arrive that afternoon!

I was so blessed for my family to be able to travel here from Louisiana to celebrate with me. It’s always so much fun having all my aunts and cousins around!

We also worked at my grandpa’s house cleaning up and getting ready for Saturday’s festivities.

FRIDAY

Friday was a big big day for me! I had to get up early to go do our graduation practice at the school. We practiced the ceremony and then got to pick up our awards, cords, medals, and even got some biscuits for breakfast!

After practice, I picked up my cousin Ashlyn (from Louisiana) and took her into Huntsville to show her the city. We didn’t have much time before we had to get back and get ready for my grad ceremony that night, but we managed to get in some shopping and a tasty sushi lunch from Whole Foods 🙂

And of course, that night was THE night. The actual graduation ceremony was finally here! I felt like I had waited forever for graduation, and it was finally here. I am so proud of all of my classmates and our accomplishments!

the girls!
You’re looking at LCHS alumni!

SATURDAY

By far, Saturday was the most exciting day of the week. I have to give all the thanks and love to my mom and my cousins for putting together two separate amazing parties with two separate themes! I love a good theme party and I had so much fun getting dressed up and celebrating.

For lunch, we put together a Farmer’s market themed get together. We used antiques from around my Grandpa’s farm as well as several gingham-adorned party supplies to flesh out this theme. I can’t even express how amazed I was at how everything came out.

So thankful for these gorgeous friends to celebrate with 🙂
The southern essentials: Lemonade, sweet tea, and pink lemonade!
We found this vintage cabinet in my Grandpa’s barn and filled it with delicious pulled pork, BLTs, and classic Southern pickled veggies!
Here we have the “Veggie Garden” and “Berry Patch” which were probably my favorite part of the spread!
A plate full of goodies!
My cousins really know how to party!

My farmer’s market lunch was absolutely one for the books. We ate, drank, and had a great time. I felt so loved and celebrated!

After a little bit of down time during the hottest part of the afternoon, we began the switch to the Ice Cream social theme. We swapped out all the gingham for pretty pastels. It couldn’t have looked better!

Of course a costume change was necessary 🙂
The theme was ‘Sweeter in the South’ so we had homemade pralines, smores, and cookies from my favorite Italian bakery in New Orleans. YUM
The ice cream bar complete with waffle bowls, toppings, chocolate and vanilla, and my mom’s homemade peach (which is to die for)

I am so very thankful for my family and all their help with both parties. They sure know how to make a girl feel loved! I am so lucky to have had a week full of fun, friends, and celebration. Huge congratulations to all of the Class of 2020, we finally made it!

Thank you all so much for reading and following along with me for a fun week in my life! I hope you all enjoyed reading as much as I did writing. I wish you all health and happiness!

Stay Sweet, Sophia ❤
