Spring Break is now over and we went back to school Monday. I hated having to wake up early because I got used to sleeping in till noon. It was kind of funny walking into school Monday because I would look around and find people with really bad tans or people who got sun burned. Plus everyone was walking around as if they were the living dead because they were so tired. All this week we have been going full throttle in our classes now that our EOCTs (End of Course Test) are coming up. The teachers have been so stressed out with trying to get everything covered which sucks for the students because these are the times we get double the homework. But summer is just around the corner and I’m super excited for the break but after a few days I start to miss my friends and my classmates.
This outfit was taken during spring break in Madison, GA. The city was such a beautiful place and there were flowers everywhere which I loved. I will be talking about the city and a few things we did while we were there in one of my upcoming posts so you guys can get a feel for it. It was such a cool place and I definitely would recommend for people to take a nice trip there.
Spring break was kind of cold for us down here in Georgia so I had to wear a long sleeve shirt and pants to go to Madison. I wore a white tank top with a long black and gray striped cardigan over it. I also pared it with a white, black, and gray beaded necklace. I also added dark purple pants to the outfit to give it an unexpected color. The shoes matched the gray in the top of the shirt. The outfit was perfect to go walking in because when it was cold I had the cover up and once it got warmer I could just take off the cover up and just wear the tank top and the outfit would still look nice. Once I got home I had to do some serious washing because the pollen got all over my clothes, the shoes looked yellow instead of gray by the time we were done walking.
Have you guys ever seen what crawfish look like? Recently I just went to a crawfish bake at a friend’s house. I was a little skeptical at first because when I would see them on TV they always looked like a cross between a spider and a crab. Also I would hear people talking about how the right way to eat crawfish was by sucking out the juices in the head, which did not sound very appetizing to me at all. When we were getting ready to eat the crawfish my mom’s friend dumped out the crawfish and everything that was cooked with on a table. I looked into the big pile of miniature looking lobsters and I could see potatoes, shrimp, sausage, garlic, and corn. It looked and smelled great! I started off with some of the potatoes and shrimp and finally built up the courage to try the crawfish. My dad had to show me how to open it up, which is a really messy process. I then ate it and it tasted a bit similar to crab. I liked the flavor of it, but I think I’m more of a shrimp girl. Life is all about experiences after all! so crawfish boil, checked.
Not much to say about the outfit. We were finally getting rid of the winter weather so wearing a dress was super welcomed. In addition I wore it to such a messy feast because I was meeting my mom’s friend for the first time and I wanted to look presentable. I always hear that the first impression is the most important impression. I posted a picture of the crawfish boil on Instagram so follow me at cardigansandnecklaces to see that picture and other random pictures. 🙂
The first Sunday of every month I am going to start posting a post that tells you guys a little more about me. I think that it’s important that all of my readers know something about me, it helps you guys get an idea of the type of person I am. I am going to be talking about hobbies, things I like, goals for my future, interesting stories about things I have experienced in my life so far, and anything else that will help you guys create a better picture of who I truly am. I have already mentioned a lot of things in my about section, but with these posts I will go more into depth about certain things and mention some more stuff you have not read before.
I love to sing and I love music, the feeling I get when I sing feels unreal. I sing so much around my house that I’m pretty sure that it’s starting to bother my family. Music is a big part of my life, I just love listening to the rhythm and trying to match it with my voice. I use music and singing as my stress reliever, because I think about the lyrics instead of what I’m worrying about. I love singing and music so much that I even joined chorus back in 5th grade. I got in and loved it ever since. Even though I didn’t join chorus in 6th and 7th grade, I got back into chorus in 8th grade. In chorus, we treat each other like family. Some of the people have arguments between themselves, but they always make up in the end. Recently I tried out for show choir, and I am happy to say that I got in! I’m super excited because ever since I watched the show Glee, all I ever wanted was to join a singing group like that. I love the concept of dancing along to music that I hear on the radio. I am so excited to start show choir because I have met a few of the upperclassmen in there and they are some pretty cool people! I plan to stay in chorus and show choir every year I am in high school. It feels good to have a class where I don’t have to stress about home work or upcoming tests.
Something I don’t like about chorus is the attire. We have to wear this all black dress that is really simple with black flats. Not a very fun dress and not something I would wear by choice. My dad always make comments on how creepy I look because of the dress. One of the pictures above shows the full dress that I have to wear to every concert. The other picture shows a small part of the chorus on stage getting ready to sing one of the Festival pieces. In chorus right now we are working on Broadway pieces that will be preformed at our spring concert. We will be recreating the Tony Awards at our school with the Rhoades Awards! Mrs. Rhoades is our chorus teacher and she is really preppy and nice, she is a huge Broadway and Disney princess fanatic. The group I am in right now will be performing a Thoroughly Modern Milly song medley. Our opening and ending will be Anything Goes, which is all chorus groups dancing and singing. Maybe one of these days I will be able to post a YouTube video of one of our performances so you guys can get a better picture of what our chorus groups are like.
