Our hosts today are Susan of Between Naps on the Porch, Sally of Smiling Sally and Rhoda of Southern Hospitality.
Today for my Thrifty Treasure, I'm sharing this RED basketweave bowl I got a few months back in Hobby Lobby. It is normally $30 but I snagged it at 80% off and only paid $6.00! Woo-hoo! Given there was a small but noticeable chip but I can easily cover that up, you know? I noticed the great shade of red right away though it was on the top shelf and at the opposite of the end of the aisle.
Now for some Blue and Gold... and a little met along the way...
This little Asian lady went from hoping to become a college graduate soon enough to admiring the cap and gown with Phi Theta Kappa regalia (honors)...
To actually trying them on... (keep an eye on the tassel now...)
And then becoming a full pledged college graduate with an Associate's degree in Elementary Education! (the tassel's been moved from Right to Left) Yay, me!!!
It's been a long drawn out 2-year program. I started in 2006 and endured much hassle and delays, but if you ask me if I'd do it again, I'd say, you bet! I remember telling my teen in the car on the way there, "There's nothing like a college graduation. High school ones are wonderful, but you just can't describe a college graduation."
Maybe it has something to do with "the real world" is all that's left or other career avenues await you but knowing that I've finished college (though still deciding where and when to start my Bachelor's program since we'll be moving again next year), I just can't describe the ups and downs I felt during all of Friday, the 15th.
I congratulate all those who graduated this year and I offer my endless and sincere gratitude to my wonderful children and husband, my mom, my wonderful SIL Maggie, and great friends (blog, distant and neighbors) who expressed their love, support and shared in my happiness.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all...
