He did it!

It has happened! Jacob graduated!
After years of late night studying and four hour marathon tests, he did it.
I could not be more proud of his amazing accomplishment.
I sometimes wonder if life would've been easier if we met after college instead of being poor, married college students, but I am glad to have gone through it with my buddy. Jacob was the biggest help to me when I was in school and now I couldn't be happier to share this moment with Jacob.
 Jacob taking the iconic walk across the stage and shaking hands with the big man, the Dean of the Marriott Business School.

We had to be at the Marriott Center at 7 a.m. I was anxious/excited and woke up at 5:30. It was enough time to make waffles and get on campus to save us some good seats. And with his college being the largest at the university, we had to race to get good seats.

 The newest graduate!

 The convocation attendees: Jocy, Fred, Janeice, J, me, Momma and Daddy-o
 The Bensons. (How cute are Jocy's new bangs?)
 Proud parentals.
 Fist pumping at the bell tower.

 Graduation = romantic dip and kiss. That's how we roll.

Coolness in Cougar-ville. My favorite is Jacob's 'I Love You' hand sign. Supa gangsta.

The most popular photo-op spot on campus. It was busy, but I am glad we waited to get this iconic graduate photo.

 Jumping for joy! No more tests! No more homework!

Does this mean we are real adults now?


  1. Congrats to Jacob!
