Last week, I had an award night for our honor cords!
Honor cords are something we can wear at our graduation and we have to earn them through our 4 years. I'm not sure on the exact details, but I think you need 3 or 4 years of a subject area and you have to receive an A in them. I didn't expect to get much since in my junior year (also the most important year...), my grades took more or less a nose dive.
Despite that though, I did manage to get an honor cord in 2 subject areas. I also go a cord for passing our state test and an honor cord for passing the state fitness exam at the challenge level! (I am very proud of that one!) Fun fact, each of these cords cost our school $10 each!! Can you believe that?? They are slightly overpriced in my opinion haha.
On Monday, I also had another senior event. It was our senior trip and we went to a fun park for it. It's hard to describe what exactly the park would be, but it had many events for us including a rock climbing wall, an obstacle course, and canoeing. It actually resembled a summer camp type place in my opinion.
I actually did both the rock climbing and canoeing. I wasn't necessary the best at either, but it was a lot of fun!! Luckily I had a friend with me in the boat during canoeing and she was an expert so she basically told me what to do. Let me tell you.. canoeing = a huge arm workout!! For the rock climbing, I tried very hard, and eventually was able to make it up 1/2 the wall! I think I may have developed a fear of heights sometime in the past year...

My last item here relates directly to prom and it is quite important! It is my clutch that I will using for prom! I wanted to keep the gold theme up so I spent so much time online typing in the words "gold, sparkly clutch." I also went to a few stores looking for a gold clutch, but there weren't a lot to pick from. A lot of the clutches were silver which did not match everything else. Eventually I settled on going back to promgirl and I saw this little clutch called the "millie gold." It was what I wanted so I ordered it!
I'm going to have to say, Promgirl's shipping is unbeatable!! For one it's always free and second, it's so fast! I ordered late Sunday night and my clutch came to me by Tuesday afternoon! Crazy right!? My only complient with this bag is that the sparkles tend to shed which isn't what I wished for, but it's not that big of a deal since everything else is perfect!
Have you ever been canoeing or kayaking before?
Did your school have honor cords for graduation?
Any makeup, hair, accessory tips for me on prom day? =) I've decided to go more natural with makeup and skip foundation (since I never wear it anyways). I'll probably just use moisturizer!
