This past Saturday, our families celebrated Emily’s (my daughter) second graduation from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville.
Emily received her undergrad Bachelor’s Degree in 2007 and on Saturday, May 9, 2009, she received her Master’s in Speech Pathology. She graduated with a 3.8 GPA and begins her career on May 18th with the hospitals of Cox Health in Missouri. We are very excited for her and her husband, Kyle.
I threw a post ceremony graduation luncheon for family and friends. I prepared my family recipe for Smoked Brisket, Pioneer Woman’s Asian Noodle Salad, Cheese Bread based on PW’s Olive Cheese Bread, Cake Balls that Bakerella showed us how to make back at PW’s Ranch last month. I also dipped some fresh strawberries and served the cake balls and strawberries with a side of strawberry or vanilla ice cream. They raved about everything and ate it all!
We took lots of photographs and had a wonderful day. So here’s to Emily – Congrats, baby!
Their next adventure: they are building their first home this summer. I’ll post photos of the entire process. The plan is great!
