Graduation Celebration

To celebrate Chris' graduation I decorated the apartment with streamers & balloons! I surprised Chris with $1,000 in gift cards to Best Buy so he could buy himself a new tv! (I didn't dare pick one out for him) I have been saving money for a while now without him knowing, hoping he would be shocked...and he was! I also wanted to celebrate this huge accomplishment and show Chris how proud I am! So....I planned a little weekend getaway to Vegas! We invited two of Chris' close friends from BYU-Danny (and his wife) & Mark. [we are sad not everyone we invited was able to join us tho!] They are some of the funniest people I know, my stomach literally hurt from cracking up constantly! We had a great weekend relaxing by the pool, playing games, seeing movies, going to the strip, shopping, and eating fabulous food! I certainly hope Chris feels spoiled & loved!

my cheesy decorations!

these were holding the balloons down, i tied the gift cards to the back

This was the yummiest chocolate shake from BLT in the Mirage! The straws were huge!

The final Hurrah! to our trip was seeing the LOVE show. It was awesome! It made me think of my parents singing the Beatles, I bet they would love it. I hope to take them to see it!
Thanks to everyone who has supported & been there for us over the past 3 years! Just 3 more months!!

I am so excited for both of you!!! I know the feeling! Oh and the sandals you are wearing with your jean shorts are the ones I am wearing for my wedding! If I am not mistaken they have a silver strap and crystal things that go over the toe right? They look so cute with my dress-very beach chic! haha
