>We did it!

>Well, after 3 years, my husband graduated from Westminister Theological Seminary!  And I’ll brag on him for a minute…he ended with a 3.9 GPA too…so proud of him!

The night before graduation, the school held a dinner (which we got into for FREE – because my husband also works for the seminary…woohoo!)  We got to get dressed up, but it was at a place close to my school, and I didn’t have time to go home and get ready…so I did my hair in my classroom like any dork would do 😉

And because I like to post thrifty things on this blog…I’ll let you know that my dress cost $7 on a Kohls super clearance sale, and I had the belt and the shirt

The graduates all got up individually and spoke about their plans for after graduation.

A Westminister alum spoke, and did an amazing job!  Then, we ate too much food.  Ugh.

Then the next day, I took a personal day and got to see my husband actually get his diploma and officially graduate!!

His grandma came…we love her 🙂

Here’s 2 of my sibs…we were minus my youngest brother:

And then we had a lovely picnic lunch with family…so fun!

I feel incredibly blessed today…in case you missed the big news, we found out the morning that my husband graduated that he got approved for a full-time position at the seminary that he attended!!  He’s been working part-time for them, and working 2 other part-time retail jobs, and this full-time position is just a complete answer to prayer.  We’re SO excited!!
