|Such a handsome guy|
The Turtle's commencement for his Master's was this weekend, and I was so proud to see him all gussied up like Harry Potter in his graduation robes! He actually got his Master's degree in December, but the wonderful world of paperwork and bass-akwards college red tape made him miss getting his name in time for the winter ceremony. But that's ok, because June makes for much better graduation pictures!
My favorite part of graduation ceremonies are the decorations on top of the mortar boards. I planned what I would put on mine my entire senior year (ok, my entire collegiate career). Its fun and really helps your friends and family pick you out from their seats in the nosebleeds.

For the Turtle's, I thought of all his geeky favorites and went with Transformers. I google-imaged the Autobot symbol and got to work. The task was a little daunting because mortar boards aren't exactly your everyday paper or canvas.... You only get one shot. Luckily, this was pretty straight forward and I was having a good night. I was able to sketch it out on the board with white colored pencil with no goofs!
|Look ma, no mistakes!|

Other than that, the weekend has been pretty busy. With getting up early for the ceremony yesterday and then even earlier today to drop the Turtle off at the airport for a business trip, I'm exhausted. While he was texting me pics of himself bleary-eyed at the airport, I taunted him with a pic of my luxurious nap.
