Gator Grad!

Hi Yall

I graduated!!! Yay!!! The Family came up from Palm Beach on Friday and we did a fun dinner at Gators Dockside-all 11 of us.  :)  It was great to show my aunt, uncle and grandparents around Gainesville.  They saw my little house and where my old sorority house is.  They loved it.  Then we made a quick DQ run for a little treat.  Yumm.  I had lots of Gator pride and wore my school colors, orange and blue all weekend.  (Don't think I'm silly, I just loooove my Gators!)

The College of Education graduation ceremony was on Saturday afternoon.  Mom, Dad, Drew(brother) and Cute Boy got up early with me to take some Grad pictures around campus and at the Swamp, our awesome football stadium.  I was hoping to see Tebow while we were there, but no luck.  We got some great shots and had a lot of fun walking around together.  Then we went to meet the rest of the family at the Museum of Natural History, which was right next door to the theater where I was graduating.  It was a perfect morning.  Then after the ceremony we went to my new fave restaurant called BJ's.  We had a delicious early dinner before the family had to get back on the road to get home and I opened lots of fun Grad gifts! You will all love the Lilly Pencils and Notebook that Mom gave me along with a beautiful silver bangle that says, "When I teach I am the best of who I am."  It's beautiful and so meaningful.

And to top it all off, Mom and Dad gave me a FlipMino HD Video Camera!!!! SO Awesome!

It's black and red (Cute Boy's favorite colors!) and comes with a cute little case so it won't get scratched.  The camera is awesome and so easy to use!  The colors are beautiful and the picture is so clear in HD when you view the videos on your computer.  (Check them out at ) 

We took lots of fun videos Saturday night when we had a bowling tourney at Alley Katz!  haha.  It was a great night! I looked ridiculous in my Orange and Blue Lilly Graduation dress and bowling shoes!  I am working on learning how to post my video clips to preppy gator... more on that later. :)

Well I wish you all could have been there to celebrate my special grad day.  Hope this was a sufficient re-cap!  Go Gators!

Tomorrow, Cute boy and I are off to Palm Beach for the rest of the week before our Summer sessions start with my classes and his externship in Ocala.  

Boogie Down yall, and dont be afraid to bowl in Lilly!  It's fun!
