Graduation Celebration

Good morning! How are ya? I’m moving a little slower today after 2+ glasses of wine last night. I swear, I don’t know what happened, but I cannot hang like I used to!

The graduation celebration last night way exceeded my expectations. Bobby and I had a blast hanging out with my friends, their husbands and family members. These three girls and I had our first ever grad school class together two years ago and have stayed on the same trajectory ever since. Don’t know what I would have done without them during those demanding periods of working full-time + night school.

I completely forgot to RSVP to the event, so when they called the graduates names I wasn’t sure I’d be included. But they ended up tacking my name onto the end of the list and I snagged my little gift, a university-branded travel mug.

I’ve been on the lookout for a new tumbler since mine is five years old and on it’s last leg. We’ll see if this one stands up to the no-leaking-keep-coffee-hot test. Have I mentioned yet that I love free stuff?

Our group was the last to leave and the maintenance staff was basically cleaning up around us. You could say it was a success.

The food spread at the event was pretty impressive and I tried to take some photos, but they just turned out fugly. Imagine fried wontons, sliders, egg rolls, cheese plate, cookies, baked mac ‘n cheese, crudités and fruit. I wasn’t too hungry since it was earlier than I’m used to eating dinner, but I did chow down on a plate of fruit. I was pretty hungry when I arrived home around 7:30 (Bobby had left from the party for another holiday work event), so I heated up an Amy’s frozen burrito . The black bean & rice flavor was a little lackluster, so I ate about half before I threw a frozen pizza in the oven. We buy Gino’s East frozen pizzas and they are Bobby’s all-time favorite. I told him I ate “his” pizza last night and he adamantly suggested that I stop at the store and buy him another one today 🙂

I’ve only exercised once this week, so I’m planning to hit the gym later this afternoon after my classes. We’ll see how that goes. Fortunately, my Class Pass membership restarts on the 4th of every month, so I can take my beloved Fly Wheel classes again.

I hope you have a great rest of your day!

xo,

Lizzie
