I am no longer an Undergraduate. I know I posted that I walked through the Commencement Ceremony. But I had my final class, and passed it just last week.
The day was surreal. I've been going for my degree for five years...and it's finally over. However, one thing kept popping up in my head...

For dessert, the Unique OC didn't fail there. It's not quite a food truck, they are still working on their food truck, but Sweet Lucie's Ice Cream and Treats has an adorable ice cream stand.
We tried a lot of their flavors and they were all amazing! I settled on the Mint Strawberry Lemonade Sorbet since it started to get hot, I'm still craving it...

Mr. Bumblebee got the Garden Grove Burrito ($5). Basically the same but burrito style with rice. He demolished the entire thing.
To finish off the night, as soon as we finished our taco/burritos, Tropical Shave Ice showed up! I was pretty excited!

I made these for Bumblebee MIL's birthday and got rave reviews. My husband and a few friends said they taste like real donuts just mini.

This may not seem like a big deal to some people but I'm a first time homeowner...I came downstairs to find that Bumblebee FIL and Mr. Bumblebee had made several large holes in my house. If things don't work out...I have to fix it.
But the boys pulled through. T.V. is up. The cords need to be put behind the new floorboards, but we have yet to pick them out yet.
So in this little picture here is the to-do list:
1. Paint shutters white.
2. New mantle for fire place
3. New floorboards
4. Crown molding
5. Wood floors
6. Tile fireplace
7. Replace sliding door with french doors
We got a few things to get done....oye.

Background: Cousin and I spent almost all of our summers while growing up together at my grandparents house which was in Tehachapi. There are some memories there that we cherish to our cores.
Since both of our husbands have only been up there once, I jumped at the opportunity and started planning. While looking online for some info, I found the house that my grandfather built himself was up for sale. It was a sign. I scheduled an appointment to look at it and off we went.
When we were kids, we would go to "The Shack" to get lunch with Grandpa and it was always a huge treat. Afterwards we would take our leftovers to a lake and feed the ducks. So when we got into town, that was the first thing we did...go feed the ducks. Luckily my mom reminded me to pack some bread...
Is my cousin not the cutest pregnant lady ever?! She is so graceful, she makes it look easy!
Mr. Bumblebee set up the tripod and we took a group photo.
I really love that I am so close with my cousin, and recently, I have no idea what I would do without her.
This is a picture of the house. I won't post a photo of the whole house for privacy sake but it is beautiful. If it wasn't for our recent home purchase, I would have bought this place up. So many memories in there. It was so much fun to walk down the halls we used to run though with our husbands and explain to them our memories. I hope they will cherish these memories half as much as I know my cousin and I do.
We had some great talks out there and made even more memories. I won't lie, I got choked up a few times, but we are so lucky to have all these precious experiences and this visit made me realize how much my grandpa is still with me, everyday.

Everyone seemed to love them and Mr. Bumblebee was grateful for the leftovers.

First encounter: I was in the backyard cleaning the patio when I felt something crawl over my feet. After I had a Ohmygooditseffinggodzillalizard moment, I made Mr. Bumlebee catch him and release him. Here's the beast:
But that wasn't the end of our squatter problem. The very next 'effin' day I pick up a box in the guest room to meet this big #^$&^$ lizard!!
Not even lying...this guy was probably two feet long. When I screamed he ran and his tail was so long, for a second I thought it was a snake. Once again...Mr. Bumblebee ran to the rescue. We still have no idea this guy got into the house without us noticing. I still get the creeps when I think about it...
Don't worry, I'm a friend to all creatures so these lizards were just relocated to a close park after I charged them rent and pain and suffering...
