My Sister's Graduation 2013

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

It would have been my sister's high school graduation yesterday. While she wasn't there physically, I'm sure she was there in spirit.

There was 48 students graduating and about half of them would have known my sister. They wore Hello Kitty pins on their gowns in remembrance of her. They also included her name at the end of the picture slide show.

They always gave flowers to the moms' towards the end of the ceremony and one of my sister's best friends gave my mom a flower and this picture below.

My sister's very best friend, Alayna also gave a rose and decorated her cap saying, "We made it, Naomi." She was the best kind of friend a person wants in life. She was there by my sister's side even when she was sick. To this day, she still remembers my sister's birthday and death date. 
I didn't cry at my own gradation but I couldn't help but shed a few tears when they gave these to my mom. It was a bittersweet moment.
I went to a graduation party later that afternoon and it was nice to get out and socialize ;) It was a son of my very good friend's party but that meant all of my ex's family was there. This girl sucked it up and went anyways. He is a great kid and knowing he is graduating makes me feel old! HA but I really can't believe I have been out of high school for 3 years already!
At least, I got to wear my new wedges from Target. Score!

They are Mossimo Co. and so comfy!! Normally my feet are dying after wearing heels for 15 min but I lasted about an hour before my feet started to ache. Double score! I may even go buy the pair in brown...too much?? haha
I also rearranged my room yesterday, I have way toooo much stuff!! I am learning to downsize and am working on getting rid of the little things. It's a work on progress. Proof: I found 35 Cosmo magazines hiding in my closet! Yikes-a-roni! haha
