Toomer's Corner

Congrats on your graduation (WITH distinction!) to my sister Grace and all of the class of 2012!

Grace is headed to Auburn in the fall and we couldn't be more excited to be a house divided!

In honor of Auburn, part of her graduation party was our DIY Toomer's Corner:
To quote "The Parent Trap" this "brilliant beyond brilliant idea" came to my Mom and she and I kept it a secret from Grace!
Before everyone started to arrive, I decided to get Toomer's Corner started...
Awkwardly, I was pretty good at it, but I'm not sure how all those Tigers do it on SUCH a high tree!
For those who aren't familiar with Toomer's Corner, this is what it looks like after football wins! Read more here.
This was just one of many of the TP-ed trees in our backyard in our own Toomer's Corner! It ended up being so much fun and a great activity to get all the little kids involved in! Definitely something to think about if someone you know is headed to Auburn!

HAPPY GRADUATION GRACE! It was great to celebrate with you on Saturday!

(P.S.: It's REALLY weird to write about another SEC school's tradition. Just sayin'...GO GAMECOCKS.)

What a hilarious party theme! It looks like so much fun. I love your dress, by the way! "You Gotta Regatta" is one of my favorite summer prints.

Ahh! What a great idea :) And funny story, I'm wearing the same Lilly dress to my brother's graduation on Monday.
Great minds think alike!
