The other day I got this in my email.
Which means one of two things. 1. Can you believe how old you are? OR 2. We can't believe you didn't order the photos we took of you at graduation. I'm gonna go with two. Clearly they are still trying to sell them to me. Well, I have my own people! I might not be shaking the Dean's hand, but I have got some!
But seriously. Can you believe I have been out of college for two years? What the heck is this? When did I grow up? My original thoughts would be, "Deidre, you aren't grown up... you are not fooling anyone." And then my grown up brain would say, "Deidre. You are 24 and work full time. You pay your own bills and are currently the sugar mama at your house. You are a grown up. Adult looks good on you!" I am a grown up in actions and a child at heart. That will never change. It seems like yesterday I was wearing goggles and old dance costumes for dress up. Well, that actually might have been yesterday. Either way. It has been two years since I graduated with my bachelors degree from the Marriott School of Management at BYU. And what a wild ride it has been since then. Besides that email, graduation is on the brain because our hotel is at full capacity for the rest of the week. Sell out upon sell out for families rolling into town. Which brings me to my next point! If you need to find a place to have your graduation dinner, come to Slate at the Provo Marriott! They are one of the few restaurants in town that take reservations. And they have put together an awesome buffet for graduation. Plus, it doesn't hurt that they are one of the higher ranked restaurants for food quality in the company. Let me know if you have any questions.
Congratulations to all those graduating from my alma mater this weekend. Welcome to the alumni club! And also congrats to all those not graduation from my alma mater. Graduation from college is a big deal! Now let's celebrate!

"Adult looks good on you" it. Hopefully one day I can transition from "postgrad hot mess" to that phrase. But until then, I'll enjoy the ride ;)

I think graduating from college is one of the most rewarding feelings you can ever have! Of course, if you're graduating from med school... Pretty sure that feels rewarding, too.

I feel the same way! I'm 24, married, work full time, and completely support myself and my husband as he finishes school. I went to lead a high school small group and had to keep reminding myself I am old enough to lead them, I have been out of high school for 6 years!! It's funny how it's hard to get into that "adult" mindset. Maybe when I'm toting around my own kids it'll finally set in?

Ahh I graduated 2 years ago too! Crazyy how time flies!

I seriously feel like I just graduated high school! How does time fly so quickly?! I remember when 25 years old sounded ancient... and here I am. 25 years old. And praying no one thinks I'm ancient, ha ha!

Yay for graduating! I graduated...oh my gosh, 4 years ago this month. I feel so. old. But it feels good, right?

Also, I may or may not have marked all my old BYU email to go to junk mail. Not that I don't love them.'s a lot, you know?
