"We're All Grads Here"

πŸ‘†πŸ» I made our party invites in Photoshop using our family portrait my sister Audrey commissioned from HannahPottah last Christmas for our mom 

Last week we celebrated so many exciting things in my family:
• My sister Bianca going to Law School (although she is currently deciding between two schools)
• My dad turned 60 yesterday! 
• My mom got her Doctorate a couple of years ago and we never formally celebrated
& she is the #1 Cheerleader

Celebrations started Friday night and continued allll weekend! 

On the left is a picture I drew in 1995 right after my sister Silvia was born, 
hence why she has no legs and is a floating bulb of a baby
& on the left is our family portrait that my sister Audrey commissioned from HannahPottah 
for my mom last Christmas:

As my sister Silvia had posted in her apartment:


My Zia gave me these vintage shoe clips and leopard pin, 
amazing! 

Of course I had to wear some leopards too!


What I Wore: glasses- c/o Faniel, lips- bh cosmetics Nude Rose Lip Gloss in "Marilyn", necklace- Hunt & Orchard, dress- H&M, belt- Old Navy, sandals- Sam & Libby @ Target




In preparation for my grad party,
 I got my nails done at Natural Nail Bar in Levittown, PA
I have heard such good things so I was excited to try a new salon, 
I got a pink holo powder mani and at first I loved it, 
but the red base coat came out at the bottom of my nails, 
I ended up going back a week later to get them redone which was nice that they fix them for free,
 so I'll keep you posted...

We headed to Oak Tree Lodge for the big celebrations!


Mom even turned our invite & portrait from HannahPottah into a cake! 
Shout out to Jennie Pennies Craftery for this amazing cake! 

I was excited to celebrate with Holly too! 


I can't believe we all ended up graduating all in the same year!
I couldn't wait to take pics in all our caps and gowns! 










This is the most perfect picture of Audrey with her cap:



So happy my friend/coworker Renee from Vault made the trip to celebrate! 


I mean our party was lots of fun, 
but not when mom thought she could play on my air piano...

This post from iamgogosha on Instagram was made blatantly apparent this weekend, 
as everyone told me how much I look like my mother this weekend...


It was time to head back to my parents house and continue the party! 
I loved this card my cousins got me:

& this cool dictionary print that my Big Amanda gave me: 

I got to hang out with this muffin all weekend too, 
thanks Holly for this gem:

This was definitely Barry after this weekend: 

In between eating his heart out, 
Barry spent the night in the "girls room" and didn't even come up to bed!

What a great weekend! 

Now it is time to get a job...
& hopefully, this is a good sign πŸ‘‡πŸ»
