So yesterday was my official graduation from the SUU nursing department! it was such a great day, my mom, dad and littler sister were able to come down, we were sad we couldn't have jesse's family there but they were there with us in our thoughts. So our Graduation from the nursing department is a little different, its called a Pinning ceremony where we get an official SUU nursing pin, and the director of the nursing department pins us. We had a few student speakers, the director talk and then a slide show or out last 2 years together. We then had one of our teachers read thank you letters we wrote to our families as we walked across the stage to get our pin, lamps and rose. so yeah it was a great day and I think our pinning went great, (ps we had to plan the whole thing by ourselves, and i must say we did a pretty great job!) so after graduation my family and I went to Benja's a Thai food resturant in St. George, my family was a little nervous they had never had Thai food before but i told them not to worry! haha they ended up loving it, me and jesse told them so! so after that we just hung out in St. George before going home, then me and jesse went to hang out with some of my nursing friends and celebrate the rest of our night! yay i can't believe im done, it feels so weird i dont think it has actually hit yet, that i dont have to go to school next week, Haha. i know i still have one big hurtle left to over come and that is passing my boards but im going to study hard and i know i can do it!
I just want to say thank you to everyone that helped me through these last two years! to all my friends for the support, my Family for loving me and being there for me, for all the people who let me crash at there place for early morning clinicals, and to my husband for being such a loving man, and really being my best friend and encouraging me the whole way through and for being my shoulder to cry on. I love you so much honey and I don't know what I would do with out you!
