who is looking forward to memorial day weekend?
hope you all are getting geared up for a relaxing extra day off too!
if you didn't get enough graduation fun from the pictures i posted a week or so ago, we have more! steve's little bro graduated from high school last night and we swung back to the zoo to watch the festivities. we arrived about 10 minutes after the start of the ceremony (and had to scoot in front of a bunch of different people cloaked in our tardy shame).
apparently the new grad trend is bedazzling the f&%! out of your mortarboard with the emblem of your future college. holy sparkles huskies. it was surreal listening to my 9th grade math teacher retell the same dreadful joke he did in advanced algebra and hearing familiar last names of the younger siblings of alumni i knew. as the youngest child of 3 and a former member of the choir (they sing at every graduation) i thought the 8th husky graduation i attended would finally be the last, but i have to say it was fun getting to watch with the new eyes of a semi-grown up. perhaps #9 is the charm? congratulations paul!
but mother of god tell me we weren't so tone deaf in 2008... cringe.
|fixing the hippie hair. p.s. is steve's tie the best or is steve's tie the best?|
and in case you are wondering why steve and i would be so rude as to show up halfway through the first faculty member's speech (didn't know who she was... feeling old)....
we were busy signing the lease to our new home! we will be spending yet another year in ann arbor! and though i can't say i wouldn't have been up for another adventure in another place, we've got lots of time for that in the future! right now we are both just completely stoked to be getting ready to move in together! a walk in closet, washer drying in unit, and a fireplace? we don't feel too shabby. grown ups ahoy! check out our cute little one bedroom floorplan!
hope everyone has a very happy friday and a very lovely long weekend!
