You're Invited!

I wasn't too into my college graduation.  I got my hair done. Bought some new dress pants before the ceremony. Wore a new sweater. And then my parents, and Mr. Ruggedly Handsome, and I went to dinner together following the large University ceremony at my school. I didn't order announcements, didn't have a party, didn't even really think much about a new outfit. It was a nice evening, but it came and went without much fuss.

High school graduation was another story. I basically partied for a year, beginning with my baccalaureate ceremony, continuing on with a graduation party at my high school all night following the ceremony, and then having a party at my parents house the next day. Not too mention going out to movies and reading books, and showing up at my friends parties too. Okay, so that wasn't a year, but it was definitely a full week's worth of celebrations.  And it was so. fun. A few of my favorite memories of my life are from that week and I'm glad we made a big deal out of it. 

So in an effort to relive my life...
 I'm going more with the high school plan (and I'm kidding about the reliving part. I'm just in a mood to celebrate big time).  So I have a number events I have either planned or will attend. For example, I'm meeting my girlfriends for tea later this week. I'm thinking of having a light brunch before the ceremony, and am having a party with close family and friends the evening of the ceremony.

Because I didn't order announcements in enough quantity, or in time,  compensated by ordering super cute party invites from Minted

They had some really cute things to choose from: 

and I absolutely loved this one: 

So I ordered it!

And I'm so happy with the end product. If you haven't ever looked at Minted, I definitely recommend them. (And no, they didn't pay me to say that).  They might seem pricey when you first log on, but I found a good discount code on the web, and when I actually got the invitations, I was completely pleased .


Blogging Friends,
You are invited to celebrate with me all throughout this week as I share in my graduation celebration preparations and activities. I do hope you'll join me.
