My weekend was a good, no great, one! Yesterday I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point with my bachelors degree in business administration with a concentration in management.

Unfortunately, it rained all day. Yeah, it's December in Wisconsin and it's raining something is wrong if you ask me. Raining means there were no nice outdoor pictures with family. We did head outdoors under the overhang at the entrance so we didn't get wet but the background looks really dreary, nothing like in Chelsea's pictures.
After pictures were taken my family headed to Chili's for lunch. As we were waiting for a table I opened gifts from my family. My parents gave me a Pandora bracelet and three charms. The top charm in the picture below is a zen charm to remind me to always do what makes me happy. Next is the ice love, white heart charm which is to remind me of the love my parents have for me. And the final charm from my parents is the graduation hat to remember the day by. The next charm, red stepping stones, is from my aunt and uncle. And the final charm, faith hope and love, is from my grandparents. This charm has an anchor (hope), a cross (faith), and a heart (love) on it.
We enjoyed an awesome lunch together. I had the Cajun pasta with grilled shrimp, my favorite item at Chili's. We followed up with two chocolate lava cakes. Sooooo good!
My parents and I stopped at the jewelry store on the way home to make sure the size of the bracelet was okay and to learn how to open the bracelet and add charms. (We couldn't figure it out at Chili's!)
Once home after FaceTiming with Chelsea (sad she couldn't be at my graduation, or even in town for it) I slept all afternoon since I did not get a whole lot of sleep thanks to going out the night before unexpectedly.
Perfect graduation day in my opinion other than the poor weather.
Unfortunately, I am not completely finished with school yet. I still have three finals to take, which I should have been studying for today but that didn't happen. I spent my Sunday watching football (Packers beat the Bears!), decorating Christmas cookies (made some green and gold ones even!), and trying to enroll in benefits at my new job. I ended up needing to email a human resource person because I had questions so that's still not complete. (Frustrating...) Being an adult sucks sometimes.

Have a great night readers. I'll leave you with some questions. :)
Do you decorate Christmas cookies? What kind of decorating tools do you use, colored sugar, or icing with decorating tools?
What was your favorite weekend event?
