my turn..

So I finally am feeling well since my surgery. Let me tell you, getting your tonsils out is not fun at all. Especially when the pain medication makes me throw up. :( But life was awesome before I had to go through all this torture...
Like Rondi said, we went to Idaho for our cousin Lindy's wedding and got to spend time with Shera and her family along with our other family. It was great!

Then after MUCH anticipation, the road to graduation started. The start off the trail to victory was Seminary Graduation. I was asked to put together a musical number for the meeting so me and seven of my friends from the stake sang. Much thanks to my friend Greg for suggesting me for that... But I'll admit, it wasn't all that bad.

Then, the next weekend was the Senior Dinner Dance. All my girls and I got together and went to this lovely event. Minus the instant mashed potatoes, cheesecake the size of my middle finger and a student's iPod as our DJ...it was pretty fun. I wore one of my moms dresses from her youth.

Then just a few days after that, I checked out at school. We signed yearbooks, said our goodbyes and picked up our cap and gowns. I'll miss it, but it sure felt good to walk away knowing i'd never have to go to school there again. Finally Thursday May 28th came and it was time to graduate! I started off the day with a nice breakfast with my friends Sara, Lindsey and Jessica and Magelby's Fresh.

Then we went over to the David O. Mckay Events Center for graduation rehearsal, spent the rest of the day getting ready, and finally, headed back over there for the real thing. It was great walking down that red carpet as my name was called and pictures of me flashed on the screen. Finally, the moment I had been waiting for...Congratulations Class of 2008..."WE DID IT!!!"


After the big event and plenty of pictures, a bunch of friends and I headed over to Tepanyaki for a celebration dinner! We all loved it, the boys and their shrimp catching contests and us girls and our beauty. haha. Then we changed and headed back to the school for the Senior All Night Party! This was a blast! We had big blow up toys, twister, karaoke, a spa, lots of food, bingo, a hypnotist, and more! It was a great way to end high school.

So now it's all over. Time for the big stuff...Almost. As for now, Summer is here and now that I am finall recovered I am ready for the fun!

much love, emmyj
