It started off with my future sister-in-law, Jill's, high school graduation. She graduated with honors from Central Kitsap County high school and I can't say how proud I am of her. Let me just tell you, she's not your typical teenager. She's young and definitely have a lot of life experiences to go through, but she's more mature than your typical boy crazy teen. This fall she'll be a freshman at the University of Washington (home of the Huskies and the alma mater of her older two brothers and myself!). No financials worries for her because she's going there on a full ride! Her second brother, Justin and herself will be moving into our condo after we move into our new house. They'll both be closer to us and I'm excited to see her grow up into a even lovelier young lady.
Here's what I wore to Jill's graduation. I wanted to debut the Oratory Dress on a nice summery weekend and Saturday was the perfect occasion. I wore it not knowing that Jill's high school colors were orange and black! So it was even MORE perfect. This dress went above and beyond my expectations. It's comfortable, don't wrinkle easily, and the perfect length for me. I'm going to bring this one to Hawaii on my honeymoon!

And here's the grad herself!!! Congrats, Jill!
And of course, here's the whole family with the proud big brothers and mommy.
Sunday was a productive day for us. Chris and I went to Lowes and bought a fridge and a washer and dryer set. Our pockets were empty by the time we got out of there, but we needed it for the new house. I'm especially excited for the new washer and dryer. It's fire engine red!!! :) I know I'm spoiled but currently Chris does all the laundry in the house. >_< I know I know! But I do a lot of other cleaning and all the cooking so I'm not that bad right? I think when we move into our new house, I'll be sharing in some of the laundry duties.
In addition to spending a lot of money on Sunday, we were able to pack up about 6 boxes of stuff! I hate moving and it isn't until you start packing you realize you have so much junk. We definitely need to purge or donate more stuff.
Onto my OOTD. Introducing the Acting Out Skirt! I searched for this puppy forever when it went on sale and finally found her in Santa Monica of all places. I just love this skirt because of its thick material and it's not your typical gray pencil skirt. I love the ruching on the sides. How lovely!

Before I end this, I want to send my thoughts out to Kim of Anthroholic. Her little doggie, Simon, injured the disks in his back and we doggie mommies all know how heartbreaking it is when your little ones get hurt. They can't communicate verbally with you so all they can do is look at you with those sad puppy eyes. They don't complain and even in pain, they'll give you all the love they still can. Hope Simon recovers quickly!
