My grandparents were kind enough to drive all the way from the Chicago area to come see me graduate. They only come here once a year so if I get to see them out of the norm it's quite special. As I mentioned, I made matching blue flower corsages for myself, mom, and grandma, and grandma really liked hers, and liked getting compliments on it.
They said my last name wrong as I walked across the stage. Oh well. I expected it. I'm sure I wasn't the only one whose last name was completely butchered during my 5 seconds of limelight (Why is it called that?).

All of us (minus the loving boyfriend who took the photo) before we left for Manhattan.
Me with the loving boyfriend (whose name is Garrick, for the record) at Bramlage just before the ceremony. (Can you see the powercat hidden behind us?)
These photos were taken with my mom's iPhone so the quality isn't super awesome. I have some on my camera but I'm not putting anything new on my old computer, I'm just waiting until the new one comes (tomorrow!).
And today: grad school begins. Will I ever be done??
