As of yesterday I am an unemployed college graduate.
Ahhh feels nice.
Tyler and I graduated in my department together.
We even walked across the stage hand in hand because
1) We're married, duh
2) Because I was scared I was going to trip and fall on my face.

Both of our parents came into town to celebrate.

Here's our friends Kylee and Scott.
Love them.

After we walked we met up with Aleesha at the pool for some swammer grad pics.

Our sexy mamas

I wish I'd taken some pics without that fugly robe on

Seems like only yesterday I was moving into the dorms.
I'm sad to be done...But happy to be done.
You know?

I just wanna fly....

On Saturday we went to a movie.
A movie that I really liked.
After that movie we walked outside and heard live music coming from the mall next to the theater so we decided to check it out.
As we walked (limped) towards the music all of a sudden the unfamiliar tune ended and the sound changed to a memory from my pre-teen years:

I really haven't even thought about the band Sugar Ray in like, 7 years.
Ok that's a lie.
I watch Celebrity Apprentice every Sunday night and Mark McGrath is on it.
If you don't know what I'm talking about...well I wouldn't be that surprised.
Anyway I was SO excited when I heard this song.
SO excited.
There were tons of people there!

It was so fun.
When does this ever happen?
Just walking around, minding my own business, then all of a sudden BAM I get to go to a FREE concert with one of my childhood favs.
Their music reminds me of being 10 years old riding in the backseat of my mom's car headed to summer swim practice.
LOVE Sugar Ray.
Even if they haven't had a new song since 1997.

I kneeded surgery...

*Notice: If this post doesn't make sense and has a lot of grammar problems I apologize...I am still on meds*

So I found out last Monday that I had torn the ACL and meniscus in my right knee.
I wasn't that surprised when the doctor told me the news because I know exactly when it happened.
It was on Christmas Day.
Yes, Christmas.
The ONE time I decide to try and play basketball.
Thought I would try and join in on the family fun and look where it gets me.

Anyway, because we have a lot coming up in the near future I decided to go ahead and have the surgery on Friday to get it over with.
Of course the nurse calls and tells me I must arrive at the hospital at 5:45am.
I could barely sleep the night before, b
ut before surgery I was actually feeling quite peppy and excited.
I have never had surgery before and was anticipating, well the anesthesia ; )

They even gave me these nifty undershorts things to wear which were super cute.

So they start drugging me up and before I even realize it I am acting pretty weird.
As they were wheeling me off into the operating room Ty said one last, "Love you babe!" and I responded by saying "L-O-L!"

All I remember is them putting an oxygen mask on my face and then, what felt like 5 minutes later, shaking me saying it was time to wake up.
I then remember demanding apple juice.
When I got back into the room where Ty and my mom were waiting, I told Ty he could take some pictures, naturally.
Apparently I insisted on throwing up a peace sign in every picture.

My mom was making an "L" with her fingers because they were still laughing that I said "L-O-L" on my way to surgery.
I got sad because I thought the "L" stood for "loser."

So she switched to a "w" for "winner." No she wasn't on drugs too, silly.

I mustered up all my strength to throw up that peace sign.

I remember my mom and Ty laughing at me but I didn't understand what was so funny.
I got home around noon on Friday and the rest of the weekend is pretty much a blur.
I slept.
Went to the bathroom like twice.
And ate a little .
Seriously that's all I did.

I'm starting to feel a lot better now and will hopefully get back into the swing of things pretty soon.
Luckily when the doctor got inside my knee he found out the meniscus was not torn so he only had to fix the ACL, which equals a shorter recovery.
I doubt your weekend was as good as mine, but hopefully you did something fun!
