I Did It!!

No, I’m not married yet 🙂  But I did get an important change to my name this weekend.  And no, I didn’t change my last name.  It’s even better.  This weekend, I went from Miss Blue Whale to Dr. Blue Whale!!

Seriously, it feels amazing!!  Everyone said I was crazy for planning a wedding while finishing my dissertation, but let me tell you, it’s so nice to know that graduate school will not be hanging over my head during the wedding. (Okay, yes I do have revisions to make which will take several weeks… but I passed the defense, and that’s what matters!)

Plus, my parents and my aunt came into town to attend the ceremony, and it was soooo nice to see them one more time before the actual wedding. (I haven’t seen them in a couple of months.)

My mom and aunt. I bet you’ll be surprised when you find out which is aunt and which is mom!

I know the hat isn’t on right. Sue me. This was before the ceremony, when I didn’t know how to wear everything 🙂

I know there must be other bees out there finishing degrees right now! Congrats to everyone!
