The Polish Girl did it! 13.1 mi or 21.1 km - the last one sounds better ;) Now, recovering and training for the full marathon! Well, maybe...
Here with Nick, who finished the Full Marathon. Congrats!

THE shrimp boil!

You know how husband wants this to be your last degree when he throws you the best graduation/birthday party ever!
Featured favorites of the day:
  • ummm... the shrimp boil!
  • Jungle Juice
  • interestingly shaped cactus... thanks Lacey!
  • 250 jello shots
  • Palak Paneer dish
    and pretty much everything


Finally, you may say! After numerous hours of studying, crying, screaming and tearing out my hair - I am officially done with my degree number 3, and the last one this time, promise!
Since the nursing students have their very own pinning ceremony, when the dean pins a ribbon and a Maltese cross with UND logo on it, most of them usually skip the actual graduation. Here are just some of the photos from pinning!

Birthday Breakfast

The best two things to do on your birthday is to have a party (check!), and to have dessert for breakfast. Thanks to Nicole for taking me to the Dakota Harvest for some delicious baked oatmeal followed by Napoleons!

Devil May Care about the Super Saver

On Saturday we attended the first annual Derby Party at Aleks's. He went all out with the drinks and the food and even sustained some injuries when cutting lemons the night before that caused an ER visit! Now that's what I call commitment!No animals were hurt in the making of this hat. Bravo, Lacey! Coco Chanel started from hats, too!
While some drank typical Derby juleps and weird drinks with egg whites (!), I opted for a good old mojito!
Dana and Megan won the Derby bet with the Super Saver finishing 9 places ahead of my pick, Devil May Care.
