Yes! I DID IT! I graduated!!! I will give you a step-by-step, play-by-play of the weekend. So here it goes!

I met up with one of my best friends Stacie Rasmussen who I met Freshman year in one of my classes, realized we had 2 more together, sat by each other in every class, watched the moon at 4am for our Physical Science class together, licked rocks together, created "realistic" math word problems together and so much more. So it seemed perfect that we walked together. 
We then met up with Emily who we also had classes together with and who I called on a daily basis about assignments that were due or just talk about everything. 
We all walked into the Marriott Center, and sat also with McKenna! Jordan District for life!
I sat, luckily, at a good angle to see my family (yes, we are doing the Hunger Games symbol to find each other). 
I had a great support system there including my parents, siblings, my grandparents, Aaron and his Mom. 
We heard from Elder Oaks, great job as usual. 
And now for the typical cap and gown pictures. 
That night we got together with the grandparents and family at the Story Cabin and enjoyed games and yummy pizza.
On Friday I walked at 8:00 AM! Aaron and I arrived around 6:30! I wouldn't be lying if I told you when I woke up I thought about skipping walking because I was so tired! This is my mom coming to the front railing to take pictures of me walking in and I am a tad embarrassed ;)
Walking up to get my fake diploma...and I didn't fall!
Finally! I DID IT!
More pictures with the El Ed friends :)
My old roommate and El Ed graduate, Jen.
Gotta love the tent I am wearing :)
That day Melanie and all of her girls came as well as the Johnson (Stephen/Holly) family came all the way from Arizona (SO nice!) to see me graduate! It was great having them there!
We all gathered again at the Story Cabin for a fun celebration! We had a delicious chocolate cake. 
My Mom/Aaron decorated a cute sign to congratulate me :)
We also enjoyed my mom's delicious and homemade Cafe Rio Salad!
Thanks everyone for all of your support! I really appreciate it! ...now I just need to get through Spring Term. ;)
