I Am Officially An FSU Alum!!

I am now officially a graduate of THE Florida State University!! Ahhhh so weird! So sorry I haven't blogged in a few days, but I have been super busy with graduation stuff! I really can't believe that I am no longer a college student! So strange feeling! Thought I would fill y'all in on what has been going on and share with y'all some pictures from Saturday's graduation!

Friday: I had the day off from work, which was nice! My parents and grandmother came into town around dinner time and we went to dinner at Bonefish!

Saturday: GRADUATION DAY!! Was up before 6am in order to be ready to leave by 7:30am. Got to the Civic Center a little after 8 and graduation started right at 9am! It was so surreal to be didn't really hit me that I was graduating from college until the President told us to stand and turn our tassels and then declared us as "graduates." Then it hit me. I started to tear up! It hit me that the 4 best years of my life were coming to a close! Thank you FSU, you did me well! :)

{Don't I look happy to be a grad? hehe.}

After the ceremony we went to lunch at Gordos and then went back to my place and I opened gifts and we had cupcakes!

Then we went back to campus to Wescott to take pictures by the fountain before my parents and grandmother left to head back to Jacksonville!

Later on I met up with friends to continue the celebration at Monk's for food and drinks!

All in all, it was a fantastic day that I will never forget!! Thanks to everyone who made it wonderful!

Also, so sorry for the delay in announcing the winner to my first giveaway! But I put all the entries into a hat (15 total entries) and had my roommate draw a random name. The winner of my first giveaway is Annie! Yayy! Thanks to everyone who entered! I hope to do another giveaway sometime this summer!

Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!
