Thank You Ma'am I'm Done. Uh Huh

I have been keeping a low profile all week because I was off studying for my last set of finals and papers due.  That's right- I finished my MBA program and I don't know what's next. I finished this past Thursday and I still can't believe it.  In fact, I was downplaying it, but my amazing, supportive family made a big deal out of it with cards, flowers, and cake.
I came into our house and my family had planned a surprise party for me.  My lovely in-laws couldn't make it, but they made sure to make a big deal out of it too!  There is no way I could have gone to school without the support of my family- my husband, both sets of parents, and my bro and his family for dealing with my meltdowns, constantly cheering me on when I wanted to quit, and taking all my study excuses for ditching them the last two years.

Here is some of the party planning committee:

And the head party planner
There were hats and signs guys!  My husband got this cake made for me:
And it was completely devoured...with leftovers for breakfast.
So what's next?  Well, hopefully more regular blogging, more time to get my house in order, and of course more workouts and yoga :)  Now there is something to update on my blog 'About Me' section that I need to get to!

Signing off for now-

One Healthy Apple, MBA

Congrats girl! That is an amazing accomplishment :) Yay for more free time too!! When I was in grad school I used to fantasize about having free evenings to just read/watch tv/do whatever and not feel guilty for not studying. It's awesome!

Congrats to you!! What a HUGE accomplishment! Of course your family would be proud and want to celebrate with you :) I can still remember the day I defended my thesis. I was glowing all day long. Such a great feeling. I hope you are enjoying your extra free-time (enjoy it while it lasts!!).
