I finally graduated!! Yippee!!

Well I finally did it!! I graduated from ASU last Friday and it feels awesome!! I thought this day would never come but it finally did and I'm excited to start a new chapter of my life. The weekend was so much fun and it was great having all of my family here. The ceremony was very nice and Hugh Downs from sixty minutes was one of the speakers! The student speaker was a transvestite, who had a great message but I was a little surprised!! Afterwards we had a great party with family, friends and food! The weekend was full of good food, swimming, visiting and overall having a nice, relaxing time with one another. I will certainly remember this fantastic weekend for the rest of my life. I'm so thankful that my family came and have supported me through my entire educational career. I feel so blessed to have such amazing family and friends that care for me so much!! I'm one lucky gal......especially because I had an unbelievable husband who helped make my day so special!!

Me and my mama!

Me and my handsome husband!

Long time no post.....

Well it has been a while since we have posted anything but it has been a busy month and a half. But now Melanie is done with school and is able to donate more time to the family blog!! Mel graduated last week and it was really exciting to have all of our family here. It was a red carpet event. As we posted before, President Obama spoke and he gave a really nice speech. It was really exciting to sit so close to the president and hear him speak! We saw air force one fly in since the airport is next to the stadium and saw his limo pull up. We were right next to the stage so we had a good view of him. Plus our seats were higher up so we got to see the snipers too!! It was so cool! Before commencement began, Alice Cooper and his son performed and that was kind of neat. All in all, it was a great night that we will always remember!
