i graduated from belmont on saturday.

no big deal.

i honestly can't believe it. not that i didn't think i'd graduate. i just didn't think it would happen so fast. i feel like i was just starting my time at belmont, and now it's over.

well, it's not really over because i'm in graduate school. but it's hard to believe i'm done with undergrad.

it's official! i snuck my phone in with me during graduation, so i took pictures during the ceremony :)

and even better, it was on cinco de mayo!! so even more reason for celebration!

it was an awesome day. long, but awesome.

we had prepped addison for the day. we told her that it was my graduation and that she would have to be quiet for a while.

she was really excited and kept saying "it's your graduation day, mommy!".

well, someone got some stage freight when it came time to yell when i walked across the stage. all of my family and friends (all 7 of them. students only got 7 tickets for family and friends) were quiet because they were waiting for addison to cheer. she got a little scared, and finally said something. but instead of yelling "congrats!" or "yay mommy!", she said "happy birthday mommy!". unfortunately, i didn't hear exactly what she said. but i heard it was hilarious!

addison did great during the whole ceremony. probably better than me. i was one of the first to graduate. they did it alphabetically by college, and the college of business was the first, so i got to walk early.

all of the family went out of lunch after. then that night i went to a derby party and celebrated with friends.

i still can't believe i'm done. it's crazy. no more undergrad. woo hoo!! now i just have to finish up this graduate school stuff. and then it will be on to the CPA exam. will it ever end?? hopefully some day!

Congratulations! I remember that feeling! It feels so close, yet so far away! Trust me, the day you get that CPA certificate will make it all worthwhile!
