Vacation Recap

   I went on vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina a few weeks ago, and I had so much fun. I couldn't have asked for better company than my sweet boyfriend, Joe. We spent most of the time just laying low and hanging out on the beach, but we did a few fun things like getting dressed up for a nice dinner, going crab hunting, and playing mini golf.
   Here is a quick recap (in the form of pictures, of course) of our week! Can I go back now?

   I made a Shutterfly book to commemorate our wonderful week together, which is definitely a more fun way to look through pictures than just scrolling through a few of them. So feel free to look through that, too!

Graduation Party!

  I don't know if I'll ever get a hang of blogging regularly, no matter how much I'd like to. But for now I'll just have to catch up on everything I've been meaning to post!

  Starting with my graduation party on June 2nd. I had a lot of fun and got to see many of the people I love all in one place. And it was so fun buying all the party supplies and decorating for the event! I decided to go for a Lilly Pulitzer-esque theme because who doesn't love Lilly?

  Here are some pictures from the party! My mom ordered the cake from a local bakery, but it came plain blue with "Congratulations Alex" in the middle. I bought a can of icing and dyed it into 6 different shades of pink and green and actually painted the flowers on with a paintbrush myself! It was time consuming but very worth it!

Tatted Up

These last few weeks have been filled with excitement. I'm on the train home from Baltimore now, and spent the whole week in the Outer Banks with my sweet boyfriend (pictures of that to come).

While I was there, I decided to do something I'd been wanting to do for a long time - get an octopus tattoo! I thought I'd show some pictures. I am so in love with it!!

Miscellaneous May

I've been so busy with finals and projects and graduation sneaking up on me that I've been slacking with my posts once again. Hoping that summertime will allow for more blogging!

Here are a few pictures just to let y'all know what I've been up to :)
