Senior Homecoming Recap + Photo Dump

Last year as a junior in high school, I wrote a pretty similar post containing homecoming pictures from the week. Reading it back and noticing how I couldn't believe I was a junior makes me giggle... Because now I'm a senior and I'm still thinking the same thing while under a lot more stress about what I'm going to do with my life. ;) HA!

The past week was filled with lots of shenanigans and hanging out with the people I've been with since kindergarten. I don't know where the time goes, but I do know where the memories come from... And it's called staying up way too late practicing for powderpuff football with all these crazies...


My Grandma spent the weekend with us and came to coronation on Sunday night. She lives about an hour away so it was great to have her here the whole weekend! She ended up fixing a little dress malfunction for me, too. Talk about a lifesaver!




My gorgeous friend Stacy was crowned homecoming queen and I couldn't be happier for her. She is the sweetest girl I've ever met and always has something kind to say to anyone and EVERYONE she comes in contact with!


A few of my favorite co-workers surprised me by coming... And I totally cried about it! These ladies are more like sisters to me and I couldn't be more grateful for them!


I got to rock some awesome second day hair on Monday. I also got to sleep in and we know how Kenzie feels about that. ;)


Tuesday night was a volleyball game. My best friend Becca plays and is the MVP in my eyes! We had so much fun supporting her!


Wednesday was nerd day... Oh, dear Lord.


Thursday was another volleyball game. The girls WON and it was such a fun game to cheer for!


Friday was the homecoming football game and homecoming dance. It started pouring the last 5 minutes of the game, but we made do with it and had so.much.fun.!


I was sick with bronchitis and in pain all last week, but I enjoyed every second of homecoming my senior year. Juvenile arthritis IS participating in any/ALL homecoming events your senior year despite pain, fear of what this week's Children's appointment will reveal, and injections tonight. It's smiling when it's hard to want to and it's wearing a ridiculously sparkly dress. It's taking pain pills and wearing pain patches to get through the last dance of your high school career. It's simply dancing in the rain ALL THE DAYS and believing that God has you right where you need to be... :)
