Thaaaaaaaat’s me—– you all can refer to me now as “Chef Jenna”! Haha just kidding ;)

Graduation was a success!

I came, I saw, I graduated magna cum laude. Woop woop! Here are some pictures from the morning—

Here’s my friend Blakely and I. She has a blog too! Check her out!

Ryan and I had to leave at about 6:45 this morning and then we just met everyone else there. Before we left, I made a bowl of oatmeal with 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water (we are out of milk!), 1 mashed banana, 1 tbsp ground flax, 1 spoonful cinnamon peanut butter and a drizzle of maple syrup :)

The ceremony lasted until about noon and then Ryan took me out for a graduation lunch at one of my favorite places—Press 101. I had a DELICIOUS pressed turkey, brie and apple sandwich on ciabatta bread with a glass of rose (hey, it’s my day—I can do what I want!). I ate about 3/4th of the sandwich because it was gigantic!

Heaven on earth—-

I’m not sure what the rest of the day holds….I think some yoga might be in order and Ryan is taking a nap since he didn’t get home last night until 1:45! My parents are having a big graduation dinner for me tonight though so that’s where we will be. I think my aunt may be concocting lemon drop martinis ;) It should be fun!

I hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday—I’ll see you tonight!

Congratulations Jenna!
Cinnamon peanut butter sure does sound good…. We don’t get that here, but maybe I can whip some up ~ is it just regular peanut butter with a hint of cinnamon?
