Weekend In Review

The new clothing size victory could not have come at a better time as I had a houseful of people to celebrate my oldest daughters graduation. She completed her Master's Degree in Mathematics (yup I am proud).

In attendance were my parents, daughters, ex-husband and his sisters. What in the past would have been a pretty stressful event was relatively calm. David went above and beyond the call of duty and stayed home to do all of the cooking and arranging for the after graduation party. He barbecued salmon and hotdogs. He fried a chicken, cooked rosemary potatoes, made two cakes, a batch of home-made ice cream and bread. I only prepped the potatoes in foil and threw together a caprese pasta salad before I left for the graduation ceremony.

The only down-side to the day was the stupid rain! We were stuck indoors in our much smaller house. We did manage to seat everyone but it required all of our dining room chairs into the living room as well as our lawn chairs.

Nichole's picture was snapped by the official photographers (she is in the center of the picture with dark curly hair.
