Last weekend was a spectacular weekend in so many ways and I had to share a bit with my readers just because. I figure if you read the sad posts like the letter to my mom you deserve to read a happier post. By the way, thank you to all of you who have offered your words of support in response to that post. It has meant the world to me as we move forward with my mom’s dementia.
We happily flew to Raleigh for the graduation of our future daughter in law, Erin, who received her Doctorate in Pharmacy degree from UNC Chapel Hill. Of course we were excited for all of the festivities but one of my highlights was loving on Diego and Fajita.
Saturday was graduation day and we arrived VERY early and on a 90 degree North Carolina day I might have sweated off all my makeup by the time we were let into Memorial Hall where the ceremony was to occur. This explains the lack of pictures of me. “Smile”. The one I did manage to get I was a sweat ball having a hot flash and Chris was looking all Grumpy Cat so I won’t subject you to seeing that. Instead I will show you our sweet Erin and Aaron.
We are so excited for their next chapter. After spending 10 or so days with us after they close on the Raleigh townhouse (which sold in an amazing 3 hours) they will be moving to Jacksonville, Florida for Erin’s residency.
Of course we enjoyed celebrating with Erin’s family and the feature of the night? Mini bundt cakes. They are thing now that are taking the place of cupcakes. These from Nothing Bundt Cake were amazing.
Another ice cream cake that was consumed was this one – it was tasty even if the name was misspelled. Matewell, Maxwell??? Of course it got a lot of laughs all night long and Erin will always be reminded that she has another name.
Sunday we celebrated Mother’s Day and Aaron and Erin took us to a great restaurant in Raleigh called Vidrio. They served us an amazing buffet with a wonderful selection of tasty items. Yum. It was wonderful and the decor was amazing as well.
I received lovely gifts from the boys (and Wendy and Erin) and Chris got me this amazing necklace from my favorite store in Brevard- Theophilus. I think it is the perfect necklace for me, don’t you?
Now I actually get to spend a couple weeks at home and hope to do some yard work, house cleaning and spend time with Aaron and Erin when they are here. Life is good.
