Ya girl is hooded!
|Hood Status: Achieved.|
Graduation weekend was epic!
Friday night, our family and friends came into town from all over. I'm so blessed to have had so much unwavering support throughout this journey, and friends that didn't let me fall out of touch even though I am not the best at reaching out. The whole weekend was filled with so much love. I can't begin to tell you how good it felt to have so many people (who have been there with us every step of the way) come to celebrate with us.
Friday was also senior banquet. Nate and I got all dressed up like we were headed to prom and attended the event at the Indiana Rooftop Ballroom downtown. It was a beautiful evening in honor of our graduating class.
Saturday was the big day!!! One of my besties from U of M, Victoria, is a makeup artist in LA, and she hooked me up all weekend with awesomeness. She is so talented! If you need a MUA in the LA area, you can check her out here: V. Aje Artistry

After being hooded (whoot whoot!), we went back to our house, and hosted a BBQ for our guests. It was perfect because it seemed like the entire city of Indianapolis graduated that day, so it would have been so crazy trying to find a restaurant that could host our ginormous party of 30+.
Post BBQ we hit the town with my girls and brothers which was so much fun!!

Sunday, was brunch at one of my favorite restaurants close to our home. The food was delicious and the view from our party room was amazing. Before we cut the amazing cake Nate had made, I said a few words to everyone about how much it meant to me to have their support and how amazing it was to be living in that moment. You already know...ugly cry. I was so sad when the weekend ended because it was phenomenal.

Sidenote, for the weekend I decided to try Rent the Runway for the first time! My banquet dress (red) was Halston Heritage and my graduation dress (blue) was Monique Lhuillier. I will definitely be a repeat customer! If you want to try RTR for yourself, use my invite and we both will get a $20 rental credit! Click Here
