Did I ever mention...

That I graduated? Oh yeah, I know you all had your calendars marked...for Mother's Day that is. Yup, graduation on Mother's Day. I am too tired for the whole typing thing so we will relive the day in pictures and captions...

 Surprising we were able to find each in the mob of people after graduation...if you notice we are all looking different directions, our families were all taking our picture at the same time :)

My tassel has gone M.I.A in this shot...I swear I did actually graduate.

My grandparents came to watch me graduate! My grandpa gave me super cute yellow roses, it was so cute.

Me and my parents...The first thing I said to my mom when I saw her was "hey, isn't that my shirt!"

My brother looks so happy to see me...poor guy had to sit through th 2 1/2 hour ceremony and everything...

Ok, so this picture isn't from graduation but when I first moved in my dad and I stood in front of the clock-tower and my mom snapped a picture before they left me for good. It only seemed wise to get a picture in the same spot four years later.

The only problem was that when the above one was taken it was like 85 degrees...the one on graduation day was taken with a 35 degree temperature and with a good 30-40 mile per hour winds. Needless to say I had to convince my dad to take off his jacket and we I danced around trying to keep warm as my brother tried to figure out the camera. Then of course we had to wait for the perfect moment to snap a picture without a huge gust of wind threatening to blow up my skirt (oh yeah believe me...that happened a few times that weekend)...

I've been home for a week and I am still unpacking. Luckily I get to head back to Rochester in the morning for some errands and to pick of my diploma. Then its off to the MS clinic for my monthly dose of Tysabri. Hopefully Steph and I will hit up the Lilac Festival Saturday before heading out to Jess's grad party Saturday night.

Tomorrow I am graduating from college. It is surreal. I spent the day with my parents mingling with professors, talking about my future and then tonight at a candle light ceremony we reflected back on our last four years at school. It was one of those days where you are so excited, yet you feel the tears welling up behind your eyes. Even thinking about it now I am holding back before I go all out with the water works I will leave you with the lyrics from one of the songs on the graduation mix tape that one of the Hannah's gave out to my roommates and I.

So denied so I lied are you the now or never kind
In a day and a day love I'm gonna be gone for good again
Are you willing to be had are you cool with just tonight
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Put your name on the line along with place and time
Wanna stay not to go I wanna ditch the logical
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

All my time is froze in motion
Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Don't let me let you go
Here's a toast to all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Senior Week!

Senior week is still going strong around campus. Basically during senior week almost all the seniors are trashed. I even had a discussion with one of my roommates about how they have yet to destroy their livers yet...we still cant figure it out...I think I have only talked to our neighbors once when they were sober and they were over asking for a corkscrew, so we know their soberness didn't last long.

<----- Picture from the Senior Banquet tonight

The picture is from the after party at one of our friends room...our night started with the guy who invited us over making a weird diluted kool-aid concoction which turned out to have way more alcohol in it than any of use realised...maybe that's why I look so happy in the picture.

Tomorrow we are pretty busy with the senior brunch with a special surprise, then graduation rehearsal, a senior send-off (not sure what that actually means, but there is food and our fridge is looking sketchy), oh and lastly there will also be senior bar night downtown. I never saw pictures from last nights bar night but it was pretty fun, kinda chill and quiet which was a nice change up. The place last night had a capacity limit of 90 1/2 (I'm curious who would make up the 1/2 of person though) and we totally were pouring out of that bar...

Well its 1:50am, so I suppose I am off to bed...

MS Walk 2010!

Yesterday was the MS Walk, it was a blast! We walked for a bit...the options for walks were a 1'ish mile walk, a 2.3 mile walk and a 6.6 mile walk...we took a short cut over a bridge and through a church parking lot and through some grass but we made it back to the over side of the river. Luckily I sucked up the pain in my knee to walk because honestly there was no way I was not walking. Sure, I was a bit slow, but I did it and couldn't be happier. Luckily us soon to be college grads are smart enough to read a map to figure out our own short cut route...Anyways, here are some pictures of the highlights from the day, enjoy!

<---We posed as a train...yup, you guessed it, it was super early and we were in a very strange mood :)


  SNOOPY! ---> 
 (I get the feeling Snoopy and his friend who took the picture were trying to get us to buy insurance...but we pretended he was just there for pictures)

<----Apparently I didn't want to smile 


                           We survived!  -->

<----- Post walk snack time...Jess apparently was really enjoying her snack :)

So all in all we raised a whopping $1,259! 

Tomorrow I am off to my house bright and early at 8am because my knee looks and feels horrible.
