Graduation Day

May 9, 2008

I slept in and went to a new Y. A Y that is closer, but not as nice as the one I have been going to for over a year now. It's still nice, but definitely has more of a gym feel. After I went to the grocery store and finished up my shopping for Steeplechase. I brought all the stuff home and showered. I went and got a mani/pedi from my favorite manicurist. The pedicure was seriously the best thing ever and super relaxing. I came home and started making the spicy almonds and oatmeal cookie bars. Than my mom arrived and she helped me finish the oatmeal bars. She gave me her speech she had written for nurses week. It was amazing. She made me so proud and it brought tears to my eyes. She helped me steam my gown and also burned a hole in it under the arm. We had a good laugh and realized it wasn't even noticeable. She helped me get my things ready and we heady to her hotel, but not before stopping for lunch at Panera (one of our favorite places to lunch).

Graduation was a blur. Pictures before the ceremony with my mom and dad. Waiting in line for an hour. I was hooded walked across the stage and got my diploma. The ceremony was about an hour. We went to a small reception after and then headed to dinner with my friends.

Basically I have such amazing parents. I really enjoyed the time with my mom before graduation, just laughing and having a good time.

May 9, is a special day for me. In 1999 it was mother's day and the DMB concert in Charleston. Now it has another special memory attached to it.

Thanks mom and dad for all that you have done for me!

Graduation 5.9.08
