Happy holidays so far! Have you enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the holidays? How about how everyone is being nicer than usual? Or how a lot of people are talking about their faith more often than normal? I have said it before, I LOVE this time of the year!
This last week made the holidays THAT much sweeter......
I PASSED MY MASTER'S THESIS DEFENSE!
I did it! On Wednesday I presented my Thesis to my panel and after 2 excruciating hours of presentation, drilling of questions (holy moly that was hard!), and waiting for them to decide if I passed or not (they made me wait in the hallway while they 'mulled it over').....I passed. I now have an M.S. after my name :) (p.s. I have a friend whose initials are MS, so that is extra fun, yah MEL??)
|US right after I passed!!|
I must say how grateful I am that my husband came with me and supported me through it all. He is a STUD! My parents are amazing for supporting me, cheering me on, and being excited for me- they too are rockin' :) I have great family and friends- so I too am grateful for all of your support! I am OVERjoyed that this happened. Now all to do is the final edits for the library copy and I am a graduate of a Master's degree. Lov-ELY!!
What else have we been up to, you ask?
-out to dinner at PF Changs for a celebration for graduating--- thanks honey!

-burned my finger this week and rubbed Lavander and Melaleuca essential oils (used for healing) on it and there is NO scarring and IMMEDIATELY the pain went away. ROCKin'
