Finally

So, Matt graduated from law school yesterday.

This is what he looked like getting his diploma:

(He's on the left. Geez! Did you think I was married to an old, dean-looking guy?)

And the robe, hood, and six-sided floppy velvet hat were all pretty darn cool. It makes me want to get a post-graduate degree. Well, kind of. One of the speakers said they all looked like green muffins burnt tops, and it was true!

Matt wore all that, and I just showed off my sternum, drank wine, and got a little sun (at the outdoor ceremony and reception) per usual.

Matt's parents brought down a very cool gift: an antique law document from London. It's on some sort of vellum, and it's from 1671. Some sort of deed or land contract. And it's framed between two pieces of glass, as it has writing on both sides of the document.

How cool is that?

Now we're off to brunch. But I didn't want to leave you without posts for 2 days! So here it is. Enjoy.

Congrats to Mr. Pink Shoe. I'm sure he just loves it when he is referred to in such a way. Seriously, congrats and sharp looking robe.

Wow!!! Congrats to you both. The other day while moving I had a mini breakdown... I said to my husband, "THIS IS SO HARD AND I WON'T EVEN HAVE A DEGREE AT THE END TO SHOW FOR IT!!!" So, I know how many sacrifices you have both made for his education. Congratulations. Also, yes, very good gift. Are they always such creative gift givers?

Alright, my husband? Doesn't have a weird goatee. That's his tassle, for you know, graduation, hanging from his hat. What kind of weirdo do you think I married?
