In the Bean.
Hi guys!  I'm still on a natural high from the weekend!

I traveled to Boston this past Thursday to attend Berklee College of Music's 2011 Commencement.  I graduated from Berklee last year, but had a lot of friends that were to graduate this year, so I had to go back!  I had such an amazing time!  Laughing, living, being surrounded by friends, feeling like a musician again... It was like a re-boot of energy!

This post has a lot of pictures, as I am showing you guys my whole weekend!  Stay with me, there's a storyline here! :D

Boston is such a beautiful city.

I stayed with my lovely friends Therlande (left) and Tori (right).  I'm pretty sure we didn't stop laughing the whole entire weekend!  We had such a great time!

Boston's not too big, but we definitely have underground transportation.  The T!

The first day I was there we went to a cookout at a friend's house.

Aren't these ladies beautiful?

Of course we couldn't show up to the BBQ empty handed!  Sorry Therlande for making you carry the case of beer haha.  At least you got a workout! lol

We had fun at the cookout, and Tori and I ended up beating the champs at Beer Pong #collegedays  I'm not gonna lie, I was a little rusty at first, but we finished strong!  

Red Sox fans everywhere, all the time.  But this little girl in her princess costume was too cute!

Since Berklee is a music school, we do it a little differently than most graduations.  We have a concert the night before graduation which features music of the musicians being honored that year.  This year they honored Mavis Staples, Michael McDonald, and Kenny Garrett.
My friends are extremely fashionable friends as well.  How cute are these two and their looks!  #style
The three of us performed at last year's commencement concert.  Good times!  Don't tell anyone, but overall, I think our concert was better than this years!  #2010 holla!  Obviously I'm a bit biased.... 

What's up with all of my hashtags?  I clearly tweet too much LOL  

While we're on the topic...

I enjoyed the concert, and was able to get a picture of my dear friend who performed that night, Katrina Bello.  She sounded great!  She look gorgeous, loving this cobalt blue!  You can follow her @kbello

My ace Shawna, SHUTTING IT DOWN with her shaved head.  She's so fierce!
After the show, I went with Shawna to her aunt's home before meeting up with friends for drinks.  We had a good time.   I kept myself busy while she got ready lol. 

The next night we went to a graduation party and it was like a huge reunion!  I saw errbody that night.  Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures that night, but it's probably best I didn't haha.  Goood times.

The next day was graduation.  I can't believe it has been one full year since I walked across that same stage!  Ahh!
Therlande's turban game is on POINT!

Jaret and Parris.  So proud of all you guys!

This past weekend was irreplaceable, and this trip reminded me of how many beautiful people I have in my life.  I didn't realize how much I missed Boston, until I was back there!
