The One Thing Standing Between Me and the Wedding…

…is now completed! This past weekend, I had my 15 minutes 10 seconds of fame, walked across the stage (without falling), and received my college diploma!

I don’t want to sound like a crazy, wedding-obsessed girl who just wanted to finish school and get married, buuut…that’s exactly what I’ve been since Mr. C proposed last October, and dare I say, even before that? I’ve always been a great student, and always knew I wanted to go to college and get my degree, but to be perfectly honest, when I realized about tw0 semesters in that I could graduate early, I was stoked. Mr. Coach graduated early with his degree, in just three years, and when I realized I could do the same and possibly marry this man a little sooner, I was pretty darn excited. So, when the wedding planning came into the picture, even though I was “getting out” early, my graduation day couldn’t come soon enough. I really just wanted to finish up all of my classes, and be able to focus 100% on our Big Day.

Now, that time is finally here! I will undoubtedly start searching for a job after the wedding, but I’m very lucky in that Mr. C has a great job and I can just enjoy these next few months of wedding planning without feeling like I need to focus on a job hunt right away.

My diploma was actually in the tube! So exciting to see that document!

My graduation from college also marks the end of a pretty extensive stage in mine and Mr. C’s dating relationship. We have been dating for almost four years, with three of those being while I was in college, so there has already been, and will continue to be, some transitioning. I’ve already realized it’s a little different not having your own places and schedules, and going from a long-distance relationship to living in the same place is certainly a change, but overall, everything that is happening right now (moving, graduation, marriage!) is very exciting and all very positive for us!

I’m really hoping to fill these next two months (um, what!?) with some fun projects, and of course lots of last-minute planning. I can’t wait to share it all with you guys, and I really can’t wait for October to get here so that I can marry my best friend—as an education woman! ;)

Has anyone else hit any big non-wedding milestones lately? It’s so hard for me to not be completely focused on the wedding and push other things aside, but I really enjoyed getting to walk across the stage and focus on a non-wedding celebration with family for a few days!

    Congrats lady!! When Foxy and I first got engaged, I was going to school part time and working full time.. it was so hard to find time to do things for the wedding, even though that’s *all* I wanted to do!! It’s great that you have some time before needing to look for a job – enjoy these last two months of wedding prep! They’ll go by super fast!
