Pictures, Completion, and Contests, OH MY!

April 29, 2008

So, as you all know, my senior formal was this past weekend. It was a BLAST. We began in the apartment of Kelly, Brie Anne, Molly, and Haley, four of my favorite friends whom I met waaaay back during Orientation Week of freshman year. Wine, rum, champagne galore in their apartment and that’s when the cameras came out. (OH! I almost forgot to add that most of the photos from that night were taken by Nate, who has already been hired to photograph my future wedding, no matter when it is.)

Sam, me, Kelly, Molly, Haley, Brie Anne, Becky (who did not attend the formal but came for the pre-dance festivities anyways!)
I think Joe had almost as good a time as I did…

Everyone’s psyched about the glow-in-the-dark shot glasses

Except I forgot the fact STRAIGHT LIQUOR usually goes in shot glasses… EW!

So that was the beginning of the night. Very few pictures were taken at the actual dance itself, but lasting memories were had… you know, like Molly not even making it to dinner, the dinner being so good I could’ve eaten two, the freaking creme brulee that was TO DIE FOR, Kelly’s ankle swelling to the size of a grapefruit, Brie Anne’s secrets (shh!), and Haley being… Haley.
Then Joe and I came back here and passed out. Not because we were drunk, because we were sober and EXHAUSTED. So yes, a great night.

Guess what I did yesterday. I PRESENTED MY THESIS! It only took half an hour (hahaha, most presentations are given 8-10 minutes) and I had such a great turn out. My wonderful favorite friends came to support me. (They’re so wonderful because not just anyone would sit through half an hour of me stuttering through my research.) Afterwards, Joe and I made a frozen pizza and went out for ice cream… and I went to bed at 9pm. Perfection.

And, lastly, to make this post as long as possible… I want to announce my Pay It Forward Contest!! Lovely Angela chose my name in her Pay-it-Forward contest and sent me pretty darn awesome goodies (LOVE the CD!) so I’m going to do the same. Since I already have the goodies compiled (shut up, I’m a control freak), I’m going to give everyone until Friday evening to leave their name in a comment! Then I’ll choose and send you a lovely package. (Seriously, you’re lucky I’m not keeping this stuff for myself!)

But- wait! That’s not all! Please refer to my previous entry for a caption contest! Winner will also be decided Friday so hop over to that entry and make me chuckle! (You already have pretty tough competition.)

    Oh, I’m so glad you like the CD. It was a fun one to make. πŸ™‚

    Looks like the pre-party was a blast. And that dress in red? Scrumptious!

    I figure if I keep entering the Pay It Forward contest, at some point I’m bound to win, right? Maybe. I want to send and receive goodies!

    P.S. I totally miss college formals like WHOA after seeing these pics.

    Aww, y’all look gorgeous! Something about getting all dolled up makes me really happy. And glow in the dark shot glasses? Amazing.

    Yay for presenting your thesis (and being done, right?)!

    Haha, you look so cute in all these pictures!

    As for your comment, I do actually have a brother and two sisters, but they have always lived with my biological mom. It’s a complicated story, but I was adopted to my grandparents when I was about 8 weeks old. So, I’ve always known my siblings and we are all close; I’ve just never actually lived with them. Hope that makes sense.

    And yeah, you remind me of me too. My sister or something.

    Straight liquor = NASTY. Shots are not my thing. You shoulda seen me at my bachelorette party…

    I cannot help but flinch when doing shots (or drinking any liquor).

    This is the first time I’ve ever been to your site (random linking is fun!).

    I laughed when I read that you’re dating (maybe married?) to a man named Joe, because my name is Renee too, and I’m engaged to a man named Joe.

    Anyway, lovely site, great photos and congrats on defending your thesis! πŸ˜€
