Last week when I was home the reason was to celebrate Marissa and her graduation from college! It was 2 days filled with Ceremonies, Cheers, Family, Love and Hugs.
How cute is she?? I swear it really was just yesterday that she was graduating from High School, just yesterday that I celebrated Tri Delt bid day with her and she moved into the dorms, just yesterday I initiated her as my sister twice over in Tri Delt……where did this time go? When did my awkward baby sisters who was all legs become an incredibly accomplished grown woman?
Everyone….Meet Ryan………Marissa’s boyfriend who is an absolute doll! He is kind, funny and treats my sister like gold….I gave him an enthusiastic 2 thumbs up! Ryan went to OU and is currently in Grad school at OU like my sister is going to be!
Friday night was the entire University of Oklahoma commencement in the stadium and my baby sisters picture was on the jumbo-tron for being awesome! hahaha! No, for real she got picked to be in the slide show they showed during the ceremony!
At the end of Friday night OU gave us a stunning fireworks display…….it was the perfect way to end the night! “I am Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I will be Sooner Dead”.….. Rah, Oklahoma!
Saturday morning was Marissa’s Journalism College graduation and before the ceremonies began we took a nice walk thru campus and enjoyed a little family time.
That morning Marissa was honored by the Dean of Gaylord College and was inducted into their national honor society for being in the top 10% in her college! It was a private ceremony with only the Top 10% and their families…..it was truly special!
Black and White was the uniform of the day……Not only was my Mom dressed in that but my SIL Jordan showed up as my Twinkie! What can I say we love stripes!
PS- My dress is Peter Som for Kohls and I LOVE it! #petersomforkohls And my necklace is Fossil.
This picture is perfect, this picture is my entire family minus Matt and my Granddad both whom couldn’t make it…..but here we are….all smiling, all in the same place…..this picture makes my heart happy!
Congrats again to my baby sister!
