This was such a fun week, it is too bad it had to end! I was in Salt Lake all week and it was really nice being at home and spending time with my parents and brother.

When I landed in SLC, I walked down the stairs. I felt really important

Good thing my dad made 4 pizzas for the two of us. So good though!

My mom and I had so much fun shopping and getting things ready for my graduation, that time flew by! I graduated from the College of Health on Thursday and then the University-wide commencement was on Friday morning. After the ceremony on Thursday night, we went to dinner at Cucina Toscana where we had an amazing meal!

Officially a graduate!

Walking into the Huntsman Center on Friday morning

On Friday afternoon/evening, we had a small party at my house to celebrate my graduation. It was so much fun seeing everyone after having been gone for four months.

Amazing cupcakes that Amy made

On Friday night, Jeff and I went and stayed at the Dakota Mountain Lodge in Park City (part of the Waldorf=Astoria collection). It was amazing! We had a HUGE room that was basically a mini apartment complete with a fully stocked kitchen, 3 fireplaces (2 indoors and one on the balcony), a massive bathroom with jetted tub, washer/dryer in unit, and a balcony that overlooked the pool and the mountains at the Canyons. It was so nice to be up there away from it all, it truly felt like I was on vacation from my vacation.

We spent Saturday at the Outlets in Park City where, unfortunately, I did not find anything for me, but Jeff bought a great new pair of jeans. Sunday, being Mother's Day, we had a wonderful day at home and my mom and I re-did the garden that I had re-made last year. I think it turned out great!




It was a wonderful day and a wonderful week spent at home. Hopefully I will get to go home soon again, but for now, Simone will be out here to visit me in a few weeks and that will be fun! Have a wonderful week!

Questa e' stata una settimana molto divertente! Io sono stata a Salt Lake tutta la settimana per la mia laurea. Io e la mamma ci siamo divertite a fare shopping e a preparare tutto per la festa venerdi' sera. Giovedi' sera, c'era la ceremonia de la mia laurea dove chiamano il mio nome e io camino a traverso il parcoscenico. Dopo la ceremonia, siamo andati a mangiare a la Cucina Toscana ed era una cena buonissima! Venerdi', c'era la festa per tutta la scuola. Era una ceremonia molto bella. Poi, venerdi' sera, abbiamo fatto una piccola festa a casa per celebrare. Venerdi' sera, io e Jeff siamo andati a Park City all'albergho nuovo che c'e' ai Canyons dell Waldorf=Astoria. E' un albergho stupendo! La nostra camera era piu' un mini appartamento che non una camera. Sabato, ci siamo incontrati con i miei alle Outlet dove io non ho trovato niente. Pero', Jeff si e' preso un paio di jeans nuovi che li stanno molto bene. Domenica era la festa della mamma e io e lei abbiamo rifatto il giardino che io avevo gia' rifatto un anno fa. Io penso che e' venuto molto bello. Era una giornata perfetta e io mi sono divertita molto a casa. Spero di tornare presto a casa pero' per adesso viene Simone tra due settimane e sono molto contenta! Buona settimana a tutti!
