Happy Graduation Sweetheart!


My wonderful and beautiful girlfriend "officially" graduated from college this weekend! She finished all her classes last year but went through the formal ceremony on Saturday. It was a pretty incredible week because she won award after award and was asked to speak at nearly every event! She went all the way through Westmont without ever getting a B! Doesn't that make you a little sick to your stomach. :) I guess the "opposites attract" thing comes into play here! ;P

Allie and I also just celebrated 6 months of being together! ...and she knows the way to my heart b/c she made me a Showit Web slideshow of pictures of us!!! It's amazing! Check it out!


Here's a shot of Allie's family and god parents. We had such a blast together this weekend and they live up in Santa Cruz which is kinda like Santa Barbara and they are the sweetest people ever.

And here is a pick of Allie and her gorgeous mom. Her brother is sadly going to some other school down in LA called Azusa Pacific. It's actually a really good school and what I like about them is that they embrace their 2nd place position to Westmont. ;)


Tomorrow I head to Tennessee for a few days to pick out the bus for the tour. Fun! I'm still kinda under the weather and I got fried at graduation so if you see me and my face is peeling off please don't stare.

Oh my heavens, that slideshow is ADORABLE.

Big Congrats to Allie. That's amazing... not ONE B. Yikes.

I also live right around the corner (almost literally) from Azusa Pacific. Great school.

Safe travels DJ.

Congrats Allie. Seeing the photo that says 2008 makes me feel old. I walked across that stage 10 years ago...ouch!

Safe travels DJ...would love to do breakfast burritos when you get back.

Cool! Congratulations to Allie. I love the slideshow, but I have one question for you DJ, that Sean Kingston and the Jamaican lingua don't make you wanna come to Jamaica. Apparently Allie likes Jamaican music so you better bring her to Jamaica and hook me up. lol!!

OK--you're seriously going down for that dig on APU David. At least we HAD a photography program when you and I were in college. And APU was awesome enough for me not only to want to finish my schooling and graduate from there but stay for 4 years when I could have graduated in three. You're a little stinker!

Glad Melissa and Adam made the comments they did! Way so show your Cougar Pride Melissa and Adam! DJ....Both schools are amazing for different reasons. I just graduated with my M.Ed. on Saturday from APU and I work there full time! :) Congrats to Allie for a job well done and for all of her awards.

I'm a little behind on reading your blog!

Way to go Allie! I've always WISHED I could speak in public. Hopefully I'll get over that someday.

I'm not sure you guys are opposites... With college, maybe, but it seems you both are driven in life (by the looks of all Allie's cords around her neck!). God has different paths for us all, and I bet you're both following the right one.(Not that you don't already know this? :P ) Congrats on 6 months!
