Hey everyone!

So as I mentioned in my blog post ‘Preparing for Graduation’ I did graduate on the weekend! How cool is that ?? So on that note I am going to tell you all about it!

So as you all know I have been preparing for this my whole entire grade 12 year basically and the day came and went so fast. I must admit it was one of the best days of my life but unfortunately it went by so fast. I just wish I could relive it again!

It started out nice and early and I went to get my hair done by Lindsay McGruther who also does my pageant hair for my events! She made my hair look beautiful- it was exactly what I wanted! Next, I went to my make-up appointment. Fallon Larson did my airbrush make up for the first time and she made me look absolutely flawless! I was so impressed! Once that was done, my best friend Louise (who also stayed at my house the whole weekend with me) got me into my dress and did the entire corsette back! She was actually amazing help and my grad day wouldn’t have been the same without her! Thanks Louise for everything you did!

Once my grad escort; Jordon Bandura who is also a really good friend of mine arrived at my house we headed straight to pictures! Pictures went all the way up until 4:30 and we actually had so much fun. The best pictures were taken at this farm we went to! The scenery was beautiful! I cannot wait until I get them all back from my photographer.

This was my grad dress! It was the biggest dress at the graduation! I loved it so much I might even wear it at the Miss Teen Canada - World national pageant !

Side Note: Daphne Lewis with Living Proof Photography also does my miss teen photos and you can also actually expect a photo shoot coming up soon, so make sure you like my Facebook page and her business page so you can exclusively see all the pictures!

Anyhow, after the pictures we went straight to the Heritage Inn where we had our graduation meal! It was absolutely delicious and it was put off so well! I may have had one plate too many 😉 haha! Once the meal was all done we headed straight back to my house where I opened gifts. I had so many gifts given to me, there’s waaaay to many people to thank. On the bright side of this I received lots of money for my graduation that I can put towards buying all the things I need for the Miss Teen Canada – World national pageant and pageant week! Plus I love shopping so it was the perfect for me!

Once all that was done we headed out to Duchess for our group graduation photo which was done by Red Roof Studio who photographed me right before my provincial pageant! The ceremony was right after so we had to hurry on over to the arena!

I was the very last graduate to walk out and it was so awesome because I will never forget having the chance to look at everyone and taking my time and really living the moment, it was one of the best feelings in the world! Even now when I hear the song ‘Shine On- Florida Georgia Line’ (my walk up song) it makes me so nostalgic of those moments! Hopefully that feeling never fades!

My group of best friend in front of the 2013 numbers my dad made my grad class!

The ceremony was beautiful. There was so many touching speeches, a PHENOMENAL slide show by my best friend Chantal Gramlich! And I actually even got to speak at our ceremony. I got to say the final thank you and hand out the gifts and show the appreciation on behalf of the grad class and it really helped with my public speaking! My grad day by far was one for the books!

Well thats it for now!

Lots of Love!
