5th Grade Graduation

Good morning my dears! Sorry for the lack of update for a bit! I leave for California a week from today, so I have been running around like crazy trying to get everything ready. And I really only have a one track mind! haha.
Any ways, running hasn't been #1 the past couple of days, and my knee is still giving me a little trouble so I have been trying to stay off of it as much as I can. There is no need to push it and cause something REALLY bad!
In other news, my little sister graduated from 5th grade this weekend! I went to her graduation, and it was just the cutest thing you have ever seen! All the little boys were wearing suits and ties, and the little girls were all dressed up too.
Just a little fact that you should know about my little sister...she is a GENIUS! And I'm not just saying that. I swear she is 11 going on 30. Its kinda crazy. So at the graduation I think they called her name somewhere around 563729 times to receive awards! haha

can you see the resemblance?! Probably not. I'm pretty sure that I was the milk man's baby. Everyone in my family has dark curly hair and I'm the oddball. Oh well, I like being different :)
In other news, my BIG trip to California is only 5 DAYS AWAY! I would be lying if I didn't say that I was FREAKING OUT! Mostly about packing for a two week trip (50% of that will be in the car) the other 50% would be meeting the boy's ENTIRE family, friends, etc.
What are some of your best tips for packing for a long trip?
I have been making list after list of things to pack, things to do before I go, things not to forget, blah, blah, blah. I just need to calm it down! haha.
Tonight is my best friend Kelli's 21st Birthday! We are throwing her a huge party at her favorite restaurant, so that should be fun! I mean what 21st birthday isn't fun?! I'll update with pictures tomorrow :)
Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!

  1. Just came across your blog and love it! California sounds awesome, and whenever I go on long trips I always pack clothes like dresses that don't take up much room. Hope you have a great time at your friend's 21st!!

  2. Your smart little sis is too cute!

    Have fun in Cali! :)

  3. how cute is your sister! my little brother just finished 5th grade too, but he didn't have a graduation.
