The Past 5 Years....

Today I just finished my last final before graduation!

It's crazy to think that 5 years ago I was a senior in high school preparing to graduate. I was so scared to start college and to be on my own for the first time.  But after 5 years I have grown so much in knowledge and as a person.

I was looking through my facebook photo album today and couldn't believe all the great times I've had while attending the U of M. So I wanted to share some of my favorite memories from the past 5 years with you....

My first Griz Game the first weekend of college.
Look at that hair!!!
Apparently my hair style has changed in the past 5 years as well....for the better!

Going to see Carrie Underwood with my Dad and sister.
"Date Night" with Dad!

Becoming an RA and working with the greatest people and friends!

Going on Staff Retreats.

Playing Capture the Flag on the "Oval".

Going to Forester's Ball and "marrying" Dusty...twice!

RA Christmas Party.

Going to see Dane Cook with Dusty, his cousin Tony and Jake in Seattle.

Going to see Pioneer Woman and meeting Megan.

Trip to Disneyland as a Family Reunion and to see my Cousin Jeff get married.

Sorry, I just had to add this one cracks me up!

In that same summer I went to Vegas to see my Cousin Brendon get married.

And last but not least, meeting Dusty and falling in love with him.

There is only one thing that I wish I could go back and tell myself freshman year of college....
"Haley, put down the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Breakfast Burrito!!! That freshman-15 is mean and nasty stuff!"

So what is going to happen to me in the next 5 years?
Who knows!

But I can tell you that on Saturday I will be wearing my cap and gown for graduation! 
Also, on Monday I will be starting my first nursing class.
The next 2-1/2 years are going to be intense, but definitely worth it when I get my second bachelors degree and become a nurse!
