    Jessica...that is such a HUGE accomplishment. It is so much harder to go back to school when you are a wife and parent and have so many obligations. You should be so proud of yourself!

    I kick myself in the butt for not finishing my degree. I just don't know that I'd want to go back and do it now....being 40, a wife and mom, and having a full-time job.

    You.are.awesome. :)

    P.S. I think a potluck bbq is perfectly acceptable. Sounds laid back and fun. Just my type of party!

    w00000000t!!! You're making us 40 somethings look AWESOME! :yesssSo thank you for that! lol! And yes on the BBQ, this is YOUR graduation, if you want to just sit around in your bathrobe, that should be acceptable too. There you go!!! Just get a purple robe, yellow slippers, hold a yellow duckie and a yellow soap on a stick! TADA! I'm genius!!!

    :thankyou

    Hehe! Seriously, congratulations on all your hard work paying off, you are an inspiration!

    Thank you gals so much!!!

    @NancyBeck I very well may end up teaching. I've been told my entire life that I should be a teacher. I crunched the numbers. I have a 3.6 gpa. I would definitely be accepted to grad school. I probably will go for it. Thank you for your support.

    I just called the lady who evaluates the graduation applications. I am definitely walking in May!!! I am on the list to rent my cap & gown!

    The party will be either June 2nd or 3rd, at my mom's house. It will be a BBQ Potluck Celebration. My mom wants gold & black in the decorations, so I've been Pinteresting.

    Oh, girlfriend, you better take LOTS of photos to share with us!! I am doing the happy dance all over the place because I KNOW exactly what you are feeling. I got mine at age 56 and I just can't put into words what it felt like walking across that stage and grabbing on to that diploma----and hearing all my kids and grandkids in the bleachers yelling GO GRANDMA!!!!! This is your day, Jess. You just do anything you little pea pickin' heart desires!! The BBQ sounds awesome and that dress----WOW, you go girl!!! :yourock

    Girlfriend, it is NEVER too late. I went back at age 52 when the nest was empty and I have never regretted it!!!

    Thank you for sharing that! Maybe when the kids are a little older I will look into it a little more. My youngest is ten so it wouldn't be too far away. :)
