Graduation, Commissioning, & Beauty and the Beast

I am so incredibly proud of my "little" brother!  He graduated from Niagara University (the Alma Mater of both Phil and I) and commissioned as a 2Lt in the Army this weekend!

I was able to watch it Live as they streamed it from the ceremony, and I am so glad they did!  I would be lying if I didn't tear up a little when my parents were pinning him, my grandfather giving him his first salute, or watching him take the oath...chills my friends!

I finally saw Beauty & the Beast last night and it was incredible! I am so glad I did not just wait until it came out on DVD, so awesome! I now want to go see it again and again and again, and so on.

I was in a mega cleaning/purging mood again on Saturday and gave the house another scrub down...what is it about hardcore cleaning that soothes the soul?

The vacuum came out and Max was faced with Fight or Flight and he chose Flight underneath our end table; he's so fierce...

Note the ever present sweet tea cup...addiction is still holding strong!

My seniors graduate this Thursday! I am so excited for them to embark on their journey after high school, but it is always a tad bittersweet!  The teachers form a receiving line at the end and they use that opportunity to give us just one more hug, it is just the sweetest!

With that coming up this week, it is time to unwind and get ready for the LAST FULL WEEK OF SCHOOL!! Can't believe it's so close!

Max is one step ahead of me with anyone surprised by that?

Have a wonderful week everyone! :)


  1. I'm glad technology allows us to take part in these special moments. It makes a huge difference in this military life.

  2. Congrats to your brother! I miss having seniors & watching them get ready for the next chapter of their lives.

    1. Thank you! Graduation is the best, they are so cute and anxious; fun times! :)

    1. Thank you!! He will actually be in Oklahoma so I will get to see him soon!

  4. I like to put on a familiar old movie and clean. It's relaxing.
