To say last week was big is an understatement. So, in lieu of a F.F. post, I thought I’d do a little summary of what’s been happening in my life!
Let’s start with Wednesday. May 11th. It was the day before my last final, and I was at lunch with two of my friends (heeeeey Olivia and Lizzy) when my sister’s boyfriend texted me. This is a rare thing (okay texting for me in general is a rare thing, sorry friends who get very late responses from me), so before I even opened the message I had a gut feeling that it was a special text.
To give you a little background, Cassidy and I had planned to get our nails done that afternoon for my graduation (and for fun let’s be honest). Little did Cassidy know, her manicure would come in handy for something else…
A little after Cassidy dropped me off at my apartment after getting our nails done, I received an excited phone call from her saying, “I got a ring!”
I am so happy for her and Caleb and I can’t tell you how fun it has already been to Pinterest wedding stuff together. I love that we are both in this exciting season of life at the same time! It’s fun to talk about what we like and picture for our big days, and it’s interesting to see how different our wedding styles are. It’s also fun to take a break from my white-greenery-traditional wedding style to research Cassidy’s more colorful-rustic-warm wedding style. (I actually just had the hardest time coming up with words to describe our styles… a picture really is worth a thousand words.)
Back to last week. Thursday evening, my parents arrived to town and we visited with them that night. I really enjoy the time I get to spend with them, as it doesn’t happen too often!
Friday morning, bright and early, I graduated college!!! Although it is so exciting (and definitely an accomplishment!), it’s a little unfinished feeling since I start grad school in 2 weeks. I had a great time celebrating afterwards with family and friends. I can’t wait to do it all again in 2 short years!
To end on a sweet note, here’s a pic of me eating some pineapple whip. Also Jake modeling his cone. (A Springfield, MO classic.) I have had a very relaxing week post-graduation. Summer is here and I couldn’t be happier. (The weather could warm up a little, though.) I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
