that one time we graduated college

Thursday, November 06, 2014

It's been a while. Things were busy. You know what with graduating, moving, vacations, working full-time, starting grad school... but we'll get to all that. One step at a time. That's the mantra right now, just taking things one day at a time - cause man - life gets crazy & stressful & busy.
But in a good way. Life really is so good. We are so blessed.

So anyway, here are some pictures from that time last April when we became college graduates! And when we took a trip with some great friends to Las Vegas to celebrate graduating from BYU and starting real life - adult life :)

For some reason husband doesn't like this picture. I wanted to use it on our Christmas card { cookin' up a post on that later } this year since it's kind of our highlight of the year and all... but it got seriously vetoed. Something about graduating being "not a big deal". Lame!

For some reason, I can't find any pictures of us with Conner's parents who also came all the way from California to support us. And brought me gorgeous flowers! Thanks guys :)

This girl. She's graduated high school and started college life and is just the coolest. Love her.

 This little lady is getting ready to graduate Elementary and move on to Junior High! Also love her.

So after graduation, we hopped in the car and drove down to party it up in Vegas. There was a whole lot of this going on, and a whole lot of eating delicious food going on. I spent a lot of my final hours in BYU classes searching Yelp for the best places to eat on our trip. Shh, don't tell. Also don't surf the internet during class, that's bad! If it makes you feel better it was just a general..
{ I linked a couple of our very favorite, must-go places below }

Sushi Mon (the one on Maryland Parkway)

Cirque du Soleil! One of our absolute favorite memories of this trip, amazing!

Babystacks. Oh my word, this breakfast (which is basically dessert) was the bomb!

New kicks, cause shopping in Vegas is the best. Obviously.

Of course we did the obligatory hotel/casino walk-throughs.

Had some fun at the wax museum...

And went into a sugar coma at Serendipity.

Vegas, you did not disappoint! Thanks Michael & Deanna for such a fun trip and great memories! We are just a little heartbroken you live so far away. But we won't pass up an opportunity to come visit you in the Big Apple when we get a chance!

After Vegas we moved from our apartment in Provo - our first ever home together - up to our cute little house in Holladay. We sure love it! :) And I'm determined to start documenting it more!
