super grad cardSo much so that this is the card I got him for his graduation! A representative fromΒ contacted me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I wanted a free card in exchange for an honest review. I browsed their selection and saw this particular card and knew it would be perfect for graduation! I will absolutely order from them again! Their cards are inexpensive and shipping is fast. My favorite, though, is how customizable the cards are! I used two of our own photos and got to pick all my text! He really is my own supergrad! πŸ™‚ Ps. he thought this card was pretty much the coolest thing ever. Score one for the wife!

grad hoodSo graduating with your master’s means that you get to wear a funny robe with wings coming of the sleeves and a odd hood. Normally you don’t actually wear the hood on your head, but since when do we worry about normal in this family? So here Christopher is demonstrating the “proper” way to wear your master’s hood! πŸ˜‰

me and tophHe keeps telling me that I may now address him as “Master Christopher.” πŸ˜‰ I’ve humored him once or twice over the weekend just because I really am that excited for him. Not sure that it will stick, though. πŸ˜‰ Either way, I am crazy proud of my sweet husband and super happy that he is finished with his MBA!

Love Rach

  12. Hahaha to the picture of Christopher with the hood! Too funny. Normal is overrated for sure!

    Congrats to Christopher!

    P.S. I have a dry socket question… how long did it take for yours to completely close?!

    • The dry socket itself went away after a few days once I started having the medicated strips put in. So the tenderness and pain subsided dramatically after that. However, the socket took a couple of months to actually close. It didn’t hurt anymore, but I kept having to rinse it out with that syringe every time I ate. Not pleasant, haha! I hope you are feeling better by now!

  13. Graduation is exciting! I’m hoping that will be me this time next summer!
