Shawn's Graduation

So I figured that EVERYBODY knows how proud I am of Shawn with his graduation so I figured that I would just share some special photos from the day that his family and friends spent with him. After graduation we had a party for him at the house and were surrounded by people that have helped him along the way and are so proud of him... SOOO without further adieu here are some specials pictures from the day!!

Hoping & Wishing...

Okay so there has been ONE thing that I have searching and hunting and trying to prove for the wedding. And that is A SWARVORSKI CRYSTAL BOUQUET WRAP. I saw on a wedding channel months and months ago this AWESOME bouquet and it had crystals ALL around it. Repeatedly people told me there is no way, I must not have seen it right blah blah blah blah blah!! haha. So to this day I have been relentless in unmapping the mystery of my mind and literally believed that I had dreamed of this mystery. EVEN the saleslady AND the District Manager of a Swarvorski STORE told me they had NEVER heard of what I was talking about. After MANY MANY MANY discussions with my mom... I decided I WILL find what I am talking about and prove to everyone that I have not truly LOST my mind... Including my florist!!.. GUESS WHAT I FOUND WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT... AND I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ORDERING IT!!.. Okay now that that is off my chest I am super pumped!! To let everyone know I have been the very opposite of a Bridezilla and if this is the picky(est) I get well so be it.. At least it was on myself!!.. Little rant I had to get out of my head!!

New Background..

Just a little note. (Graduation photos coming soon, had a great time). In the meantime I have chosen a new background. TO get myself EXTREMELY pumped up for my BLACK WHITE AND A LITTLE SOMETHING BLUE Bridal Shower back home!! I am super super super pumped to go back home and see all my girls and family. And equally excited for such a cool shower. Robyn kind of threw out the idea of the theme when we were home at Christmas and Amy and all the girls have totally ran with it and I LOVE IT!.. Not to overlook my shower down here the weekend before that!! Which will be totally Southern(y)! Getting excited!! PS I thought those wineglasses fit the "mood" of the theme!!

It has been awhile since I have been able to post.. due to an ABUNDANCE of work for both school and the wedding. One of the most exciting things that has happened over the past couple of weeks was attending the University of South Carolina Awards Ceremony and then the University of South Carolina Education Department Awards Ceremony.

Both events were by invite only and lucky us we were invited to both!! That is because Shawn has received the prestige honor of being awarded with Most Outstanding Teacher and Leadership in the Physical Education Program for 2009. I always knew that he was among the best for other people to recognize it, not going to lie, cried at both ceremonies!! One of Shawn's good friends, Mark Taylor also received the award and I was so happy for both of them.

At the second awards ceremony some of Shawn's mentors were there and I was extremely pleased to shake hands with some of the best and most talented people in the physical education field. Yesterday Shawn also had the pleasure of being nominated to give a Retirement speech on behalf of the student body at one of his biggest inspirations. She is with him in the picture below. Saturday is the big day and I will be front row cheering on my future hubby who continues to make me prouder by the day.
