Engagement Photos

I was able to copy two photos from our engagement photos website (not sure how or if that was legal). Anyway, here is just a preview. If you want to see more, follow this link:

It is going to be hard to choose! They turned out really good and makes me even more excited for our wedding pictures.

Visitors from MN

Way back at the beginning of June, my friend Kim and her little boy Jacob stopped by Chicago for a visit on their way through. They were able to hang out at our place for awhile and play in the choo choo park (more importantly). Kim and Jacob spent the night at Mandy and Matt's place (pre-fire). Jacob was so good and just watched Thomas and read his cattle magazines while the girls gossiped and had some drinks. My friends, Jamie and Rachel were able to come by too so it was great to catch up. Here are some pics!

Party Time

Here are a few pictures from Adam's Graduation party (all the way back from June). We had really great weather and turnout. Thanks for all that were able to make it!

Pomp & Circumstance

This post is long overdue! Back in the middle of June, we had quite a full weekend of multiple graduation ceremonies down in Hyde Park. Adam graduated from both Law School and from Business School. On Friday (the 13th), the University convocation was held on the quad outside. The graduates were lead in by the U of C pipe band (bagpipes and drums). It was very unique and made the moment even more special. In this ceremony, Adam received his law diploma. After the ceremony ended, the law school held its own hooding ceremony in Rockefeller Chapel (see photo below). It is gorgeous! In the hooding ceremony he was hooded by a faculty member to signify receiving his Doctor of Law. We were able to get some nice photos afterward. Then on Sunday, there was the GSB ceremony. He received his MBA degree during this ceremony. We also had a few parties in between all the pomp and circumstance. Needless to say, we were exhausted by the end! It has been 4 long years, but Adam has walked away with two major accomplishments that I know he is proud of. We all are proud of him:) Now on to the bar exam.....
