Have I mentioned how much I love the mail? For some reason I just love checking the mail. It is even better when I actually get something in the mail. I love getting letters and post cards. In fact I collect post cards. Whenever a friend goes some where I ask them to bring me a postcard back or mail me one. I have a huge pile of them sitting in a drawer. Anyway, back to while I particularly love the mail this past weekend.
I got my diploma! It's official I am a graduate! I would take a picture with me holding it, but I am kind of horrible at taking pictures of myself. When I got the envelope I danced around my apartment because I was so excited. Orion had to answer the door because I had just gotten out of the shower. As soon as he shut the front door I snatched the envelope out of his hands and screamed. Four plus years, thousands of dollars, countless hours, too many tests to think about, strained eyes from looking at a computer screen for too long, and way too much spent of text books had finally paid off! The most expensive piece of paper I will ever own is now in my possession!

All I have to do now is buy a frame for it so I can keep it protected forever. So maybe I am over protective of my diploma, but it took me my entire life to get it! College was no easy walk in the park. Who knows maybe one day I will have a Masters to go along with my Bachelors of Science. We will see. Until then I am currently working on the best project ever, our first child.


  1. Congrats!! How are you feeling chica? Remember to write these precious moments down as a mother. I have a separate private baby blog that a keep record of all the pictures, ultrasounds and memories in. It's fun to look back :)

  2. I am feeling good! My back hurts sometimes but that is about it. I am making a scrapbook with the pictures and ultrasounds in it. I still can't believe that we are going to be moms! How are YOU feeling?

  3. Congrats!!! That's so great and I'm glad after all those long hours of hard work you're still so excited! My excitement is definitely waining. You'll have to get a nice fancy frame and show us when we come to visit!
