Weekend Wrap Up No. 41

This really hasn't been my week. It's been one of those weeks where all of a sudden your every insecurity comes out of hiding. Along with that it's felt like every possible thing that could go wrong or make things more difficult, has. Even if I tried to do something fun, it felt like everything went wrong to make it unenjoyable. Then towards the end of the week I read this great post about how accepting things (and people) as they are is part of being positive and I realized that is what my issue had been all week. I was trying way too hard to control things and already had an idea in my head of how things would go, so when things didn't go according to plan I got super frustrated.

On the bright side though, I was able to start two new books this week. I started reading Seriously, I'm Kidding and A Game of Thrones. I'm really enjoying both books so far and would recommend either - Seriously, I'm Kidding for a light hearted and quick read, and A Game of Thrones if you're looking more for a fantasy world to get caught up in for a while.

Now let's get into how my weekend was!

Friday I spent most of the afternoon on Pinterest. It's one of those things where I meant to get on it for a second, and next thing I knew 2 hours had passed. Oops!

Saturday was my sister's high school graduation party, so I spent the morning getting ready and helping with the finishing touches. During her party I talked with a lot of the relatives and made it over an hour before I was exhausted from all the small talk and had to go inside for a bit. When it was over I helped clean things up before coming back inside to get into a comfy pair of leggings, a baggy t-shirt and a messy bun. It felt so much better than the dress I was wearing at the party haha. I haven't worn a dress in over 4 years though, so it was definitely a success that it stayed on for 6 hours.

Sunday I had a lazy morning in bed, reading a few blog posts. It was so nice to just lay back and relax after the previous day's festivities. After awhile I had to get up and get ready for the actual ceremony. So I got all fancied up, took some pictures with the family, and went to my sister's high school graduation ceremony. She actually volunteered to do a speech, which I thought she did really well both writing and speaking. I was so proud of her because even now I would be so scared to speak in front of the hundreds of people that were there. The photos and ceremonies took up all of the afternoon. When we got home, I was all too happy to get into some comfy clothes, eat dinner, and then get some alone time. 

And finally, here are some photos from the weekend:
