White Coat Weekend Part 1!

I was one proud girlfriend this past weekend.
On Saturday, Dom and his classmates received their white coats!

The ceremony was held downtown and was short, sweet, and emotional.  Just ask Dom's mama who teared up just by seeing his name in the program. :) 
After a few speeches the students were called up three by three to receive their coats.
After the intense amount of work Dom has put in the past 3 months (and still has a few more weeks to go!) it was so exciting to see him finally get his coat and look all official.  I was so proud!
Unfortunately, due to the professional photographers we weren't allowed to use flashes, so the pictures are a little blurry...but you can get the idea!

Okay, I may have a million videos too! Between my mom, Dom's mom, Party Nana, Tallie and Adam's (Tallies bf and Dom's friend) mom, we have pretty much every angle you could want!

After the ceremony it was photo time.  You would have thought he was Kim Kardashian.  I think we took about 3,984 different combinations of pictures, but everyone needed a turn with the man of the hour!

And last but not least...
Dom, I am so proud of how hard you have worked.  Every day you impress me with your incredible focus and drive.  School keeps getting harder and you keep taking it in stride, and work endless hours to stay at the top of your class.  You inspire me every day and I am so glad to call you mine! Love you!

While I'm tooting his horn, I have to mention the surprise I received the night before the ceremony.
I got home from work around 11:30 and saw this beauty on the kitchen table.
A beautiful explosion of pink, yellow, and white, thanking me for all I do supporting him and running the house while school gets his undivided attention.  They made my night!

After all the sappy stuff, there's only one thing to do when you have an Italian and Puerto Rican family all together...PARTY!  More details about the crazy fun day to come in Part 2!

In the meantime...here's a hint:
Happy Tuesday!
