School's Out!!

That's right.... school is out and Ryan is officially done with his MBA!  It's been a long and hard journey but Ryan has earned this and I couldn't be more proud.  Ryan gave his final capstone presentation yesterday morning and when he came home I surprised him with dinner reservations that night at one of our favorite steak restaurants in Houston.  He definitely deserved a celebration and I'm not one to pass on an opportunity to toast to this big occasion.

I've had several people tell me that his time in school has gone so quickly and when people say this we sort of laugh at them.  In some ways it has seemed like these past two years have gone quickly but then I think back to all the nights and weekends Ryan was gone or working on a project and I shake my head.  Working full-time and going to school in the evenings is no easy task and doesn't leave a lot of free time.  I think we're both looking forward to having our lives back to normal and having some time together.  I'm also looking forward to some of the other graduation celebrations we have coming up in the next few weeks!

Congrats Ryan - I'm soooo proud of you!


  1. We are sooo proud of you too, Ryan! And we are proud of you, Lauren for being supportive and patient when you had a lot of time by yourself. Looking forward to the future graduation ceremony and celebration.

  2. Yay Ryan!! So happy for both of you!!!

  3. Woohoo!! What an exciting weekend! I'm sure for all of us "outsiders" it flew by but I know for the both of you it was rough and most likely crawled by a lot of times. More for you than anyone I bet! Such an accomplishment and yay for having your lives back! Can't wait to raise a glass to Ryno!
