So for all my faithful followers, (by that I mean Grandma and Christel!) and due to popular demand, I am going to continue my blog post-graduation in order to keep you fully updated on the happenings in the life of Melissa! Since graduation I have been super busy moving, but I have managed to have a little fun along the way.
The week after graduation, Michael and I relieved my parents of their parental duties for an evening and took the twins to Chuck E. Cheese. After 2 1/2 hours of chasing them around we both went home extremely exhausted, but filled with smiles and stories. The saying is true, kids really do say the darndest things! The girls are no exception. Their favorite part of Chuck E. Cheese was climbing in the tunnels, but they weren't quite tall enough. Lucky for them, Michael was not afraid to take off his shoes and climb in there with them!The next night, Adam and I went on our last dinner date. Adam is one of my very close friends, and we joke that we make a great pretend boyfriend and girlfriend, because people assume we are dating when we go out to dinner together. So for our last get together before the summer, Adam took me on the most spectacular fake date ever! He showed up with fake flowers, took me to Cafe Del Rio for dinner and we even shared a banana split at Braum's after! Then we rented movies and relaxed for the rest of the evening. Adam is certainly going to be missed, but I expect visits from him next year.That weekend, we celebrated Michael's birthday in Kansas City before he shipped out to Las Vegas for some celebrating with the guys. We went to a Royals game on Friday, and spent Saturday by the pool, with his family, in Lee's Summit. The Royals have had a winning record recently and we got to see them beat the Rockies followed by a Friday night fireworks show!This last week has been spent moving and adjusting to life in Monett. I am on the job hunt, but will be staying with my parents until I find a position. It is nice to be around the twins so much, and they have a way of keeping me on my toes and laughing all day long! They are probably the most entertaining roommates I have ever had, and I am so glad I am getting to spend this time with them while I transition into adulthood.
