no more school....let's party!

Tonight is Ben's very LAST final for college! I can't even begin to describe for you how proud of my husband I am. He has worked so hard and so diligently to finish school. He has worked full time the entire time and been a full-time husband and dad also. It has been time-consuming and frustrating at times but, I am so very proud of how hard he has worked. Not everyone takes the road he did after high school but, I would not trade the years we spent together traveling the country while he played professional baseball. When that came to an end and he decided not to continue to pursue that childhood dream....he set out to finish school every day, at night until he finished. I really do feel like the sky is the limit for Ben. He is stubborn and WILL set out to accomplish whatever he puts his mind to. I am excited for his school to end and to be home more to spend more time with me and Kinley and baby Ty. But, I do not want this milestone to end without letting him know VERY proud of him we are.

So, we are having a party!
I got super excited to make the invites again. (I am a little obsessed.) We knew we wanted to have fajitas and margaritas because that is Ben's fav...so, I went with the Mexican theme. I think they turned out pretty good.

I decided to add some black cardstock to the back to make it look a little more "manly" before mailing them.

What a sweet tribute! You are spot on about Ben. When he wants something, nothing will stand in his way.

He has worked hard, but he was supported 100% by Lindsay, helping with papers, helping him study, and holding down the home including a new a baby.

I can't wait to see what the next chapter brings for a great couple. Love you!
