Two weeks in Review!

Do you ever feel guilty when life takes over and you can't seem to find time to write a blog! That is what the past two weeks have been for me! And even though I still consider myself a newbie at this whole blog stuff, I have been dying to get back on here and share with you all the exciting things that have been going on. So here is a breakdown of the past two weeks:

May 1st-ish, I started working on my best friends little engagement party gift! Which let me tell you, it took FOREVER! So, don't doubt my investment into this gift :) I made her (with the help of her wonderful momma) a pillow, which had Mr. Darcy's proposal from Pride and Prejudice on it! She is marrying a Brit, and she calls him Mr. Darcy :) There will be a tutorial for this up soon! It took forever, but it was easy smeasy! 

May 3rd-ish, one of my dearest friends took me out to get me pampered before the upcoming weekend. We did dinner and, of course, our fingers and toes! 

May 4th-ish, I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma! Woot Woot! I officially have a Master's degree in English. And for all who are interested, my focus is in 20th and 21st Century Literature! After 2 1/2 long years, I am finally done! I don't know what my next step is, but all I can think about right now is I don't have to write another 20 page paper any time soon! 

May 5th-ish, I did more in one day then any girl should ever have to do! It started out at my alma mater's graduation. I had some dear friends graduating, so I had to attend. But, I cut out early for my graduation party that my family and friends were holding for me! Then, I had to head to my best friend's engagement party, which I was helping host! And all this in the midst of celebrating Cinco De Mayo! Ok, not really, but I was really craving some Mexican food!

May 7th-ish I threw a dinner get-together for a friend who had also graduated! If you are an OKC native, we partied at Teds! Yum :) One of my dear friends made the sweet graduate a camera cake! She did a tutorial for the cake here!

By May 11th-ish, I felt like this! This was also my momma's birthday! 

May 12th-ish, my boy graduated with his Master's degree from Southern Nazarene University. His degree is in theology! I was a very proud gf! I also put together a little grad dinner for him that night! I'm all about hosting some parties! My dear friend, Keisha, mentioned above, also made the awesome lego cake for his party!

May 13th-ish, I celebrated Mother's day with my mom over the phone (we stayed up past midnight giggling about everything under the sun), with the boy's momma (who was visiting from North Carolina), and with my fur-babies (aka doggie Mother's Day).

My fur babies!
May 10th-16th-ish, I helped the boy out with entertaining his parents. The flew in from North Carolina to spend the week and celebrate all the festivities that were going on! We had a blast, but we went all day everyday! We wanted to make sure they went to all of OKC's best restaurants and places, which, of course, includes Pops!

 I know that was a ton of pics and info about my 'oh so exciting' life, but what the hey, it was a fun two weeks! But I will admit, I can't wait to get somewhat back on track with things!
