Graduation :)

this weekend Chris graduated and wow was it ever worth the wait. The best weekend of my life hands down, and i could not have made it without you girls. for the girls with their men still in BMT keep your heads up it will come sooner than you think!

Got there wednesday night and thursday morning i was so full of butterflies i don't remember the last time i was so anxious! I saw him run and omg AH he got the biggest smile on his face and couldn't look forward in the run he turned to look at all of us haha. but for the coin ceremony we went and sat down and waited 2 hours just sitting there to make sure we had a good seat. they gave their coins and when we were allowed to go up and touch them there were tears and so much hugging it felt amazing. the rest of the day was just base liberty and it's great just to be with him again but there is nothing to do on base let me tell you. we pretty much just ate the whole time haha and talked! no pda wasn't bad at all he was super sneaky and looked around really fast when we sat down and we could kiss. friday we got to sit through some more anxious ceremonys. his graduation. it was intense, i have never been so proud seeing him march around and all he has accomplished. it was incredible!!! and after we got to tour his dorm and see how tightly they fold their socks haha.

at 12 we got to leave on the town pass and that was grreeeaatt!! we walked the river walk and got to cuddle in the hotel finally. saturday and sunday were the same. and by saturday night he had bought a new phone and we got to text all night :) he bought some stuff and there was a "girlfriend ring" that they have there and he got it for me. it's suuuper cute :) sunday he had another town pass since he made warhawk so we went to ripleys wax museum in downtown san antonio and ate on the river walk. we spent almost all weekend downtown and it was great. but we had to say goodbye at 5 so we could catch our plane. there were more tears but this will be so much better. i am sick of writing letters!!! lol

even without doing anything at all it's amazing just to be able to sit there with him and just be with him. it was almost unreal like i was dreaming. i never actually thought the day would freaking come! it was worth it though. he has changed so much but only for the better and our relationship is so much stronger now. my advice is to do whatever you can to go to graduation. it's everything you could imagine but more.
