He Graduated!!

It is official...Cody graduated college today. It is hard to believe that we are already at this point in our lives. Graduation was, well, graduation. It was really exciting to see Cody walking toward the stage, ready to get his diploma. This was one time I was actually HAPPY that our last name started with a "W". I had something to look forward to through all of the other 600 names! He was about 30 people from the end, and he was well worth the wait. I wish I could explain how he feels, but if you know Cody, he is very good at taking things in stride. He knows that this is an amazing accomplishment, but also that there is still a long road ahead. I couldn't be more proud of him! It has been a long haul to get to this point. I wish that you could all know Cody as well as I do. He amazes me every single day with his positive outlook on life, his outrageous sense of humor, his knowledge, his concern for people around him, and his personality! I love the picture that I got of him above, it proves he is a happy man, not to mention that he has HOPS! I love you, babe...way to go!!!!

(I just love this sister's family...don't the little girls legs just look so TINY?!)
So much is going on right now. I feel like a total hypocrite because I am always the one who is nagging people to post....and here I am only posting one time a month! Life is creeping up on us...

First of all, Cody is graduating on FRIDAY!!! It doesn't even seem real, and I don't think it will until he starts dental school. I am so proud of him. This semester he had 18 credits...and not JUST 18 credits, 18 HARD credits. His only easy classes were religion and coaching football. Other than those,  he was studying his butt off every day. He is so happy to be done and have a 4 month break ahead of him. 
Me, o, me. I am keeping busy, too. My last day of work is tomorrow, and I am really sad! I am so used to having Dylan as my little constant companion, I know that I will miss him. I am going to miss the whole Cox family, they have been so good to me! I am loving, actually LOVING doing photography! I hope that everyone is checking out my blog, I am constantly updating it with new shoots. I have 5 shoots this week alone! I really hope that I can keep getting better at it and turn it into a part time profession(I say part time because my dream is to do hair part time and photography part time).  My hubbs is being amazing and building me a photography studio and  a salon in our basement....O MY GOSH I JUST CAN'T WAIT! I married a great man who just wants to make me happy, I love him! 
Together we are both doing great. We are still doing P90X, although with finals and moving we have gone downhill a little...not to mention all the graduation meals we plan to eat! We are loving every minute of the workouts and can totally see a change. I actually have muscles in my arms...WHO KNEW?!?! (I know, Nate, you won't believe it till you see it...) Cody's pants are all way to big, we really need to go shopping. Anyway, we love the results we are getting and just want to keep chugging along! We are so excited to move home to Montana for the next 7 weeks. We can't wait to see the fam every day and spend some quality time with them that we unfortunately won't be getting for the next 4 years. We are constantly buying things here and there for our new house, and plans of what to do with each room are going through our minds non-stop. If anyone has cheap ways to re-do countertops in kitchens/bathrooms we would love your tips! I hope that you are all planning your vacations to Nebraska...I hear their Zoo is AMAZING! (Like you would come just for the zoo....!!!)
Well, goodbye for now, hopefully I can get a post-graduation post in before we move!
