Round Two

This morning was Marcus’ graduation ceremony from his MBA program at the Carlson School (it’s the business school at The University of Minnesota).

And yes, this is to say that he does get his own tribute post…of sorts.

Since he had to be there a bit early to get into some sort of meaningful processional-arrangement with his fellow graduates, we got to arrive on campus SUPER early.  Which was actually kind of a good thing, since I was having a major fashion dilemma and didn’t make the leggings-dress decision until we pulled into the parking lot at 7:40 AM.

Don’t let anyone try to tell you that I’m an indecisive person 😉

In a perfect world, Marcus would have wandered around campus and with that intensely focused Photographer’s Eye that I obviously have (hahahahaha…NOT), I would have happily pranced after him in his footsteps, snapping away.


Once we parked on campus, I was all OMG NATURAL LIGHT!  So, I herded Marcus out of the parking lot (I know, so scenic) and over to an area across the street that looked more…picturesque.

I should like to think that it was worth the effort 🙂

I should like to think that the last two pictures make-up for the campus pictures that I didn’t take yesterday, when we were caught up in all of the hustle and bustle of undergraduate commencement.  Who knew, right?

I want to say that Marcus’ ceremony was shorter than Billy’s, but I don’t have any actual facts to back that one up.  My heart says it was longer, because I had to wear a dress this time and I spent most of the ceremony trying to get comfortable.

Translation: I tried my darndest to avoid inadvertently slithering out of my seat.  Poly-blends and hard plastic just weren’t meant to be together forever, you know?

This has just been an absolutely busy perfect long weekend and knowing that tomorrow is Tuesday makes the prospect of going back to work seem a little bit more…manageable.  Lord only knows how I’ll feel after the honeymoon!

When is the last time you took a day off from work and enjoyed a long weekend?

How far will you go to take a nice picture of someone/something?
