According to my calculations, I have completed and submitted all of my requirements for my degree! Wahoo! It's been a long semester, but a rewarding one. There were times where I didn't think I was going to make it, but somehow I managed to get all the assignments submitted before the deadline.

I've learned more than I ever thought possible, and it's quite surreal to think that it's all over. It's been a few days since I finished and I still feel like I'm missing some deadline or I have something I should be doing. ha ha. Maybe that feeling will go away over time. :) Right now I am enjoying slowing down for a while, and Jesse and I are planning lots of fun events and sweet times with friends.

 I'm excited to start cooking and being artistic again. I lost my passion for all those things simply because I was so busy and tired. BUT! Get this, I got a bread-maker for free! Long story short, we found a puppy while we were garage-saling, knocked on all the neighbors' doors, and one happened to be my husband's bosses house. While there I noticed he had a bread machine for sale, and he let me take it home! Meanwhile his 3 year old son dubbed the tiny maltese puppy "Eclaire." I thought it was appropriate. Altogether it was a very rewarding afternoon, although sad when we had to give the puppy back to her family. I never thought I'd fall in love with a dog! (let alone in just a few short hours.)

Maybe I can coerce Jesse into spending a grand on a puppy for my graduation present!?

unlikely. haha

Hopefully I will have more exciting updates for you all soon! :)

aww if you ever get a dog (which you should!) you definitely should adopt from the shelter.

It was seriously the best decision we ever made. Also, congrats on your free bread maker! (Jesse's going to get fat lol!) and on finishing your degree! Can't wait to see you guys sometime!
