i kept asking myself if this was real life when i was taking these pictures. i mean really? done? i still can't believe it, but i do have a diploma hanging on my wall so i guess it was real life. woo COLLEGE!
so after the big hoo-rah-wing-ding of awkwardly trying to wear the cap hat and the gown that makes you realize what life in the wardrobe of judge judy might be like, i headed home for a mini vacation in some california sunshine.
dodgers never disappoint. i don't care that they haven't won a world series since 1988. i always have and always will bleed dodger blue. mike piazza 4L.
call and gillz. words just don't do these two justice.
but sometimes, i do make an exception for the inland empire 66ers. the 909 deserves some respect.
but probably my favorite thing about being home is hanging out with two of my brothers.
and finally, this gem of a girl who has been my sister for the past 19 years and will be for the next 19+, had a bridal shower shower yesterday that my mom and i gave her. it was perfect. but then again i wouldn't expect anything less than that for a perfect bride!
sometimes i consider giving up my current career goal and just going into the wedding planning business.
but here's the thing, at the end of the day, as much as i loved being twelve with my beanie babies and puffy paint, i love even more being twenty-two with my uncertainty and excitement. i love planning countless wedding showers and giving catherine heigal a run for her money in 27 dresses. i love having 80 years of life ahead of me (yes i plan to live until i am 102 years young). youth is only a state of mind.
