Cakewalk

It's my last day as a teenager, which is a little bit heartbreaking...but it's been a wonderful day, so I guess it'll be ok. :'D
We (my room mate and I) went downtown to the Southeast Guide Dog Center, where they have guide dogs in training come in and socialize. They say it's to get them used to other people and being in public, but really, it's just an excuse for me to cuddle some puppies. :D
When we got back, found out my family had sent me an early-ish birthday present:

...a chocolate gift basket! As you can see, it was well-recieved.
(Let's just ignore those Nutritional Facts on the back, shall we? :D)

My friend Franny (we're art buddies!) sent me this a few days ago for my birthday, too:

I love Princess and the Frog, so this ornament was amazing and wonderful, and just made my day. Sorry for the horrible blurry-ness, it really is a beautiful ornament!


And, my Modcloth dresses (from my last post) came in!




Here's one of them; I also bought the "Owl Be Home" dress, but I was gong to wear that one tomorrow. My room mate says it makes me look like a shepherdess, but I love it. I'm crazy about ruffles (and rococo...) and Victoriana, so I really don't mind.
 These two were sort of my consolation to turning old (and a pat on the back for art?)...and I guess one for each decade? That makes sense...-ish.

Sorry for the long post, I'm just feeling pretty happy right now, and I'm kind of gushing. :D
