Every year our school holds an "International Food Festival" (or Foodfest) and the Junior class sets it all up to raise money for Prom for the Seniors (and themselves, but mostly for the Seniors). This year the theme was "Lions in Candyland".

After dark settles, the talent show starts and the fun only continues. My friends and I had a PHENOMENAL time dancing along to the little kids' rendition of "Kiss You" by One Direction in which we were joined by our great History teacher (who danced the Can Can with us later when the ballet girls actually did the Can Can). We all sit on the lawn and sing along (the Faculty band sang "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds, it nearly gave Tate and I heart attacks because we absolutely LOVE the Breakfast Club "It'll be ANARCHY" okay I'm done) with the songs, laugh at the cute magician who was actually really talented, and just generally have a blast.

We like to think of Foodfest as the Coachella of Brent. After the talent show, and after dark has truly fallen, the fireworks begin. This year the fireworks were absolutely incredible and T got some great shots! They had hearts and smiley faces and crackling willow trees and sparkly ones… (Hear our "Ooohs" and "Ahhh"s in the background?)
After all the festivities of Foodfest 2014 were over, I took my car full of hitchhikers (aka Shiv, Kim, and Jonathan) and we went to CPK for dinner. Kim, my petite dynamo (love you Kim!), ate a GIANT turtle sundae for dinner as JonJon, Shiv, and I shared a Margherita pizza (<3) and then went to Dairy Queen. All in all it was a magical day that I adored spending with friends.

Before we went to Foodfest, Kim and I did some shopping at Forever 21 near my house which is where we got the adorable flower crowns that made us feel so boho chic.
