I had to change my flight to fly out on Friday instead of Thursday to Kansas since I had been out of the office for a week in Paris.
Bear’s brother got married over the weekend in Missour/Kansas. The ceremony was held in a beautiful Catholic church and the reception was at the Kansas City Country Club near the Country Club Plaza.
It was an amazing weekend with the in-laws and especially with my husband.
He had been gone all summer and things got a little rough but I think we’re finding our way back. Cheers to Q4 and the near end of 2017!
Bear and I went to dinner on my actual birthday. He cam home with a beautiful arrangment of flowers that he made himself! We went to Mastro’s for dinner because I really wanted a photo with the Tomahawk bone. And the butter cake of course.
Took a trip out to Boston with Tyler to meet Bear. He just finished his summer internship at Jefferies in NY and we made a trip out of it. We visited his family and spent some QT at his grandpa’s lake house.
We ate a ton and walk all over the place. We had never been so it was nice to experience another city in the U.S.
You know I’m a sucker for anything
My dear husband in New York set his calendar to get me the new release of the Nike Air VaporMax sneakers in Violet!!! They come in the pale and true Violet,
I got the true Violet.
We left Vegas at 6pm and got home around 8pm. We took a nap for an hour and I packed quickly to go to New York.
Our flight to NY was at 11:30pm and we landed at 8:30am on Sunday. Bear is temporarily moving to NY for 10 weeks and it didn’t hit me until I got in my Uber to leave for the airport on Monday evening.
Bear’s friend was getting married in Vegas and their respective bachelor/bachelorette parties were held prior to the wedding day. I, of course didn’t want to miss out on a chance to party in Vegas so I joined the girls at Tao and Marquee on Thursday and Friday. Wedding was at the Planet Hollywood Chapel on Saturday, which I saw Bear for the first time the entire weekend. My dear friend Gordo helped with the table and cabana service on the party days.
Before heading to Indochine for our last date night dinner, we had some time so we decided to stop by our favorite social media influencer’s top ice cream spot. @FoodBABYNY
We got one waffle cone to share… carrot cake + corn bread ice cream. It was as delicious as it sounds.
I saw a friend in Korea with the lifesize statue holding a larger version. I wanted it and sent a photo to Bear. He found it online for me but it was the miniature version. I want the large one!
Wow, what a feat. After all these years, I’ve finally finished college with a Bachelor of Science in Communications.
As I struggled through the quarters, managing my social, professional and student life, it was apparent that I was almost finishing and it would be too late to quit.
Several, MANY years ago, I realized there wasn’t anything I’ve ever accomplished.
I played the piano for 10 years, played the violin and the flute but didn’t do it enough to stick. I figure skated, but only got to an axle jump. I’ve tried out different jobs, but after two years, I’d quit. I got married and decided to get a divorce…the story goes on.
I knew that I had to graduate college not only for my mom, family, Tyler (especially), but REALLY, for me.
This would be my first accomplishment in life. Hoping that this is a jump start to accomplishing many other things in life.
I always felt insecure about not having a degree, people would ask where I went to school and I would feel dumb for saying I didn’t and trying to justify why. Usually I’d blame my early marriage, but we all know the issue was the fact that I couldn’t get it done.
Now of course, no one asks where I went to school. 😛 But it’s okay, I feel confident, fearless and most of all proud.
Though my mom didn’t really seem that excited for me, all these years she would tell me to finish school and I’d just reply, “I am.” I think the whole online concept was weird for her. She quite didn’t understand the online university and I wasn’t about to explain how now. (Do you know how frustrating it is to show her things on her smartphone?)
Anyway, I am blessed to have been given the time and opportunity to finish my studies.
Now I just need to payoff my school loans.
Bear? Where are you?
