The day following David's gradation was a shopping day. Penzeys Spices is my favorite spice store and was the first place we had to visit. I loaded up with some refills and new spices.
Me outside of Penzeys after making my purchase.
After visiting Penzey's we headed to the University to return David's cap and gown. While we were on campus we journeyed over to the undergrad bookstore and purchased some souvenir items for the graduate.
We became quite hungry and decided to head over to Central West End one last time. On the way there I mentioned that I'd like to see the Basilica. David didn't object to that because he's been trying to get me there for a year. It just wasn't something that was ever on the top of my "to do" list. Here are a few photos....
The Basilica is covered in mosaics.
Each tile isn't much larger than the tip of my thumb.
Part of the ceiling.
The Basilica was absolutely beautiful.

After visiting the Basilica we went to Crepes, etc. in Central West End for a delicious lunch.
Here is David with our Skinny California Crepe. It consisted of chicken, bacon, avocado, tomato, and a mixture of Italian cheeses. This crepe was wonderful.

Me with our dessert crepe.... Blueberry!
Isn't it gorgeous? It tasted incredible!
The best husband in the world!
After lunch I spotted these roses. Sometimes ya just gotta stop and smell the roses. = )
David needed a post-lunch afternoon nap, so he dropped me off at Nordstrom Rack. I spent a couple of hours shopping there and then went and shopped at the Whole Foods next door. We'll be getting our first Whole Foods in OKC this fall, so I didn't buy a whole lot there this time.
Friday was my last visit to the Brentwood (STL) Trader Joe's.
Trader Joe's has become one of my favorite stores. I sure hope we can get one in OKC.
I also stopped in at World Market to stock up on some sugar-free Torani syrup. They have a great selection.
We saw "Avenue Q" here at the Fox Theatre back in February 2008.
The Powell Hall is the home of the St. Louis Symphony.
I met up with my friend, Rachel, for a bit in the evening. It was great to see her and I didn't want our time to end. One of us are going to have to purchase a plane ticket soon.
David had to be at the Chaifetz Arena by 2 so I rode with his family. We found seats and I immediately called my fellow med wife, Tammy, to find out where she was sitting. We were eager to see each other on this wonderful occasion so we met up half way around the stadium and hugged like sisters. There were tears of joy and sadness.
Goodbyes are never easy for me.

Me with Tammy again. We couldn't get enough hugs from each other that day. It's tough not knowing when we'll actually see each other again.

I am an EXTREMELY PROUD Wife!

One week ago I woke up to this..........
What a glorious sight!
I quickly threw on some clothes and we loaded up the family to go downtown to see the Arch.
David's side of the fam that came for graduation. They enjoyed the Arch!
This is me.... being silly!
And this is my FIL being silly.
Here's a J.D. standing with the historic St. Louis Courthouse in the background. Priceless!
My MIL. We are too fun!
The soon-to-be DOCTOR!
Keep posted for Part 2 (THE Graduation)!

David and I arrived to St. Louis and immediately drove to the University to could pick up his cap and gown.
David's Parents and Aunt Amy arrived to STL shortly after us. I prepared a delicious dinner (chicken fajitas and all the goodies that go along with it) and then we all went out for some late night custard at the famous Ted Drewes.
They LOVED Ted Drewes!

Stay tuned for more details about our trip............
