Graduation Celebration

David's Graduation Celebration took place on Sunday, June 5.  It was wonderful to celebrate his accomplishments and to thank a few family members and friends that encouraged us along the journey.  Here are a few photos...
 I ordered mini cupcakes in 4 flavors from our favorite cupcakery.  Three flavors are pictured above along with the chocolate dipped strawberries that were quite the conversation piece (they were huge!).  

 One tray of the cookies I baked and decorated.

 Pictured is smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers, honey sesame cashews, sugar cookies, pretzel M&Ms, fancy mixed nuts, peanuts, cupcakes, sliced citrus and iced tea.

 Another view: cupcakes, sugar cookies, red grapes, green grapes, strawberries, cherries, smoked gouda, provolone, aged cheddar, brie, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, grape tomatoes, and everything else that was listed in the above photo.

Every table had a different cake plate and was topped with various sugar cookies.  

We had a great turnout, but about 24 people ended up not being able to make it due to last minute emergencies. 

Several of our guests who did attend may be contacting me to cater their next event.  How fun!

We had an after party with Cocktails and Caviar at our new home.  I skipped out on the caviar, but enjoyed cocktail shrimp and more smoked salmon. It was great! 

Enjoyin' the Greens

David has always enjoyed golf and now he's recruiting me to the sport.  We both have our own set of clubs.  So fun!

Tag (Not the game)

Medical School is hard... real hard.  So I felt the graduate needed a really nice gift... Ya know, something timeless and classic.  I found THE gift and gave it to David after we had dessert at our favorite little cupcake place.
I gave him an "OU" Scentsy.  Ok, ok... it was pretty low of me, but his facial expression was priceless.  Really, what man wants a Scentsy?  After the Scentsy came THE real gift....

 He was absolutely shocked and speechless when he opened the box.

 He LOVES his new Tag Heuer automatic timepiece.  
It's gorgeous!

I'm back!

Hey!  I haven't posted in a really long time.  Sorry about that.  Life has been crazy with moving, vacation, and an injured Macbook.  That's right, my Mac has been out of commission for a while.  I believe it was the evening of May 31 when I simply opened up my Macbook and felt a crack in the screen.  The right side of the screen was cracked from top to bottom.  I have no idea how this happened.  I've never dropped it or mistreated my Mac in any way.  I was devastated!  So, I just put it back in it's case and put it aside until after our move.  I finally dropped it off at the Apple store on June 8 and they repaired it while I was on vacation.  I picked it up yesterday and am very pleased with the repair.  The replaced the entire top panel.  I can now reply to all the emails, messages, and update the good ol' blog.  Praise the Lord!

The past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind.  I'm not exactly sure yet on how to catch up, but I'll try my best to get it going soon.  

Here are a few photos for a sneak peek....
