Get Ready with Me: Prom Edition!

Yes it's been a month since I've written a post, I'm well aware, but I am coming back full force with one worth waiting for!! Who doesn't want to relive prom again, and this time you can relive it with me!

A little OOTD pre-prom edition.  
The flannel shirt is from American Eagle
The shorts are Nike
The Hair and Makeup are nonexistent
The planner is my most favorite possession!

As you can see, I am putting my planner to good use.  I had planned the heck out of this weekend, mostly because I was so excited!! See all the little sticky note lists covering all other days besides prom?

Prom Festivities began that morning as I woke up at 8 a.m. (after staying up until 1 the night before prepping...) when I went to pick up Maze's boutonniere.

And then went to get my hair done!
This is what I saw when I came in and just had to share a picture of it! My best friend and I decided to get ready together, which meant taking turns getting out hair done, and then her coming back to my house to do makeup!





Snacking through the primping

Makeup!


And then Maze came :)

Giving him his boutonniere...

Getting my corsage...

Shoes!

Corsages!



With my Memaw :)

So, we had to take a redneck picture, just as a joke :)


Fixing each other and making funny faces, just like always :)

Playing Cinderella!

Let's go!

My neighbor, who is like my sister, just had a baby, so I had to go visit them at the hospital :)  

They were all joking that this could be a teen pregnancy awareness or birth control ad!

Finally, it was time to meet up with my big group of friends.

In honor of our favorite Marine History Teacher!



Such a personality picture...

Let's go eat!

Before prom I went with a group of fourteen, I repeat fourteen, people to Outback in Johnson City, so we had to meet early.  It truly could not have been more perfect, we had so much fun!

I love how the actual time at prom is such a minor detail of the day.  Our prom theme this year was "Love You Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran... do you know how that can be a prom theme? Because I still don't! From what I can figure, there were lot's of flowers, so our theme was like English Countryside maybe? They had good intentions, but a low decoration budget. We had a lot of fun though, and were the last ones to leave during the last song! 
Plus, my best friend was Prom Queen!!

After prom the same group from before prom, minus a few, went to my friend's camp up in the middle of NOWHERE to play paintball after prom.  Hear that? Paintball. In the dark. At 2 a.m. On the side of a mountain! In theory we thought it sounded really fun, the execution was a little fuzzy... We were just shooting through brush in the general area of glowsticks. Once most of us (besides Maze and my friend) ran out of ammo we had to regroup to get more.  But then decided we were bored with this and just unloaded on the two of them!  They weren't exactly happy...

After Paintball we all went back to the Bonfire to hang out.  About 4-5 a.m. everyone had slowly left or went to sleep leaving me and two of my friends.  It was then we made the horrid decision to stay up all night and watch the sunrise!  We spent the remainder of the night stoking the fire, avoiding the smoke and rain, talking out of our heads, and planning the next day!

We left my friend's camp around 7:30 in the morning to go home and sleep a couple of hours, before festivities began again!

The three of us slept like 4 hours, got up, and went to Linville Caverns with my boyfriend and his friend!


Overall, it was truly an amazing weekend, and I couldn't have asked for a better one :)

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's


Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
