Weekend Recap: Pharmacy School Graduation

This weekend, Christopher graduated from pharmacy school! Woooo! He was in the accelerated three year program at South University in Savannah, which he started right after we got engaged. Lots of sleepless nights, and too many tests to count, but he's finally done. Which means I'm finally done worrying about it, because that's how I roll. 

I'm really proud of him. He stuck it out when everything about school was miserable. I don't think I could have done it myself! On Friday, he received his doctoral hood at an intimate ceremony with just the other pharmacy students. 

After pictures and checking into our hotel, we went to Elizabeth on 37th for a very nice dinner to celebrate. This is one of the places that I've always wanted to go in Savannah, and it did not disappoint. We started with the tuna tartar of course, and I enjoyed the delicious scallops while Christopher had the beef tenderloin. Yum! That evening we met up with some friends after a stop at Lulu's Chocolate Bar where I had the best chocolate raspberry cake of my entire life. Savannah always feeds me well.

Saturday morning was the actual graduation of all the Masters and Doctoral programs. There were a ton of people there, but it only took an hour and half or so. My mom and brother drove down from South Carolina to join us for the commencement ceremony, and it was so good to see them for the first time since the wedding. I had missed them a ton!

Of course I had to get a couple of new dresses to wear to these important "once in a lifetime" occasions! My green dress is from Walker Boutique here in Statesboro, and has a fabulous tie-neck, which is one of my favorite details. There is a cute scalloped shift dress on their website in the same amazing emerald! The navy dress is from Entourage; they have a similar one on their website in white!
