Sequin time!

Okay, I know they're a little on the tacky side at times....

But I love sequins. I love them.

Ever since I was a kid, I've been attracted to anything that can cast rainbows on the wall -

The crystal pendant hanging in my grandmother's window, for example.

So it makes me really happy when I'm sitting in the car and my shoes look like disco balls, casting little diamond specks all over the dashboard :)

My friends and I really for a "Silly Party" featured in a short film. But that jacket I'm wearing is one of my prized possessions. And to be honest, that dress liz is wearing is mine too :)

My clothing mantra is Wear What You Feel Like! So my choices can be a bit eccentric, but I always feel good in what I'm wearing.

One night while I was away at Colton's, my friends at school invaded my closet and went out on the town as "Classy Ladies". They sent me the pictures, and I laughed so much. But part of me thinks they look kindof fabulous :)

"Classy ladies love to read."

"Classy ladies love William Jennings Bryan."

"Classy ladies love to work out."

They're ridiculous. I love them.

But I would like to make the case that sequins really can be classed up - check out these lovely items.

Weddings on the Brain

It's a summer of weddings! At least 20 people from my graduating class are tying the knot this summer. That's great, but we're all really close, and so it's really hard to choose which weddings to go to, and which to miss. One of Colton's film friends won't be able to attend our wedding because he's a groomsman in another on the same day a few states away. We'll miss you, Bryan Boling!

It's nice to be able to focus more on wedding things now that I'm out of school. I found it really hard to prioritize at the end of semester, so the wedding was put on the backburner.

But I think it's all coming together now. I love the bridesmaids outfits. Here are a few of them, although there are nine altogether. (I couldn't find pictures of the others, but one is cream, one is a blue skirt and floral top, and the last for Cassie is a demin chambray dress her grandmother is making! So nice.)

I'm trying to come up with ways to save money but still have special details - for the centerpieces, instead of having flowers only, I'm going to make paper flowers and birds out of scrapbook paper to display bouquet-style in mason jars. If you have any good patterns, please let me know!

Colton's getting really ancy to get married. I am too, really - we're both just so excited. We're in the home stretch!

The Last Stand of the Clique

Well we did it!

And what I mean is that I graduated from college yesterday. Whoo!!!

But it was really sad to leave my friends... We've been together since the beginning. We'll see each other several times this summer since there are so many weddings, but we wanted to do something special before we split.

And that something special is another ridiculous Justin Bieber Music Vid!!!!

Peace Out, A-Town Down.
