Phew, We Did It!

Well, it's DONE... got my two seniors graduated from high school and we threw not one but two big parties this week. We had a dinner party after graduation on Thursday and another barbecue on Saturday for the friends and family who couldn't make the middle-of-the-week celebration. It was a really nice ceremony and thankfully held indoors (air-conditioned!) at the Memorial Auditorium. My son David was in all three of the musical performances... two on his trumpet and one on the upright bass. Here are a couple of photos taken right after the commencement. The tall grad in the middle is my stepson, Justin, and the other grad is my son, David.

I got tagged twice this week, once by Luisa and once by Candee, and I'm just now getting a chance to play along. Here we go!


1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

My 7 Facts:

1. I met my husband online. In August we'll celebrate our 8 year anniversary.

2. I have more "guy" than "girly" tendancies (i.e., I don't like to shop, I'm very analytical, and I'd much rather buy more electronic toys than jewelry...).

3. I have played the piano since I was about 9 years old.

4. I don't like heights.

5. My first love was Donny Osmond.

6. I enjoy solitude (maybe because my household is usually so busy...) and am perfectly comfortable being alone.

7. Before I became a SAHM, I worked for Hewlett-Packard and managed 18 people in 5 western states.

Now I'm going to tag my entire creative team, plus one more to make seven:
Debbie, Livia, Nani, Brenda, Kay, Oase, and Sherrie (RCMama).

I quickly wanted to remind you that I have the My Guy collection on sale, 30% off through Father's Day. This is a great kit for all your layouts honoring dads, husbands, and grandpas!

Those are two VERY handsome young men - congrats to all of you for getting them through the whole experience! My youngest DD will be graduating next year and my youngest DS the year after! We have already made it through 3 graduations, and that makes me feel really old just typing this!
