Last Day of School Adventure

Okay so our last day of school and our graduation from elementary school was on Friday. I know, its not that big of a deal later in life, but right now it is sort of a big deal for me. I had been going to the same school for ten years and on Friday it felt like it was abruptly coming to an end. A bunch of friends and I, after leaving school with tears in our eyes, went to the Salt and Pepper diner on Lincoln and indulged ourselves in sandwiches, burgers, french fries, and of course milkshakes. Our personal favorite shake from Salt and Pepper is the chocolate peanut butter shake. In a better mood, we wandered over to Jonquil Park where we proceeded to go into the playground and be the biggest people there by about seven years. I guess it's true that you never realize what you are missing until it's gone. I had my friend push three of on the tire swing until I felt nauseous. We all played the game Dragon where there is one person who is it and they have to tag the other people except they can't go on the playground equipment. We then ran through the sprinkle and my friend, hilariously, had a bucket of water dumped on her by a five year old.

Three friends and I walked back down to Armitage where two of us, both of the blog writers, tried to convince our guy friend to come into Benefit with us, but it did not work. For everyone that goes to Benefit, I recommend the cream eyeshadow. We then proceeded to go into Lush and only wash our hands with that exfoliating stuff and then leave, and then we went to MAC which has a totally different vibe than Benefit. While I was in there I was thinking for those of you who have read Hunger Games, that it seems like the place the contestants would have their makeup done. Personally I enjoy Benefit a lot better than MAC for many reasons, but for one obvious one, in Benefit we actually are greeted when we go in! Anyway, a bittersweet day in all, but a lot of fun!
