Master's Degree...CHECK!!!

So, after a whirlwind of events yesterday, I can officially say that I am FINISHED with graduate school. The day started very early with us leaving the house at about 7 in the morning. I had to be in Cookeville by 8:30 or so to figure out where I was supposed to stand for my 10:00 graduation. We made it by 8:45 or so and did not leave Cookeville until 1:30 or so--does that give you any indication of how ridiculously long my graduation was? Around 1,200 graduates were in attendance--needless to say, I snuck out the back after I walked across the stage (we needed to be in Nashville by 2:00 for my sister's graduation). We made it to the car, grabbed a quick lunch, and made our way to Lipscomb. We made it in time to watch most of the ceremony, and then headed home to get everything ready for the party. It was a CRAZY day! Here are some of the obligatory cap and gown pics from yesterday...

The happy couple finally finished with all of their studies!!!

Oh little brother, how you love taking pictures with me. :)

Doesn't my dad look happy? I think he enjoyed this graduation even more because he didn't have to pay for it! HAHA!

Me and mi madre--Love this lady!

Ok--Andy took this picture. I'm assuming that the white thing in the corner is his finger. :) I am the little ant towards the back with the lovely light blue collar thingy on...

Getting my diploma cover...diploma to come in the mail.

DONE!!! After this I slipped out the back. :)

I would like to note that Andy was a real trooper yesterday. He managed to video part of me walking across the stage and snapped some pictures! He is a very supportive and loving husband...thank you Mr. Bozeman!

Also, a huge thanks to my mom, dad, brother, my aunt Paula, and Granddaddy Gray and Jane. They all made the hike to Cookeville to see my graduation. It meant so much to me to have them there. Also, congrats to my sister--she is soon headed to Texas to continue her education, but she is finished with schooling for the next few months or so!

I hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend! It's back to the real world tomorrow!
