Some photos and a bit of a surprise!

It's been too long! I've not blogged for the past couple of days properly because honestly, I've been shattered! Work have had me go in for 30 hours over the past three days and I am still KNACKERED.  All I managed to do when I got in Sun and Mon (12 hour shifts 8am-8pm :( ) was have a glass of wine and sink into the bath haha.  Today has been fab, caught up on Friday Night Lights and gave my hair a wash and I'm about to sort out my nails because tomorrow is Rich's graduation!  I was really unsure about what to wear, but this is what I think I'm going to go for:
Off the shoulder LBD
Black patent pumps
Red nails
Red shoes
Loose curls hollywood style!
What do you all think, ok?  I didn't us to clash on the photos so I thought black would be the best to match his cap and gown, then hopefully I won't stand out too much with all his Uni mates and everyone else graduating!  Also   my LBD is a little bit clingy so I did some sit ups before to compensate, not done any in ages so I was panting like a fish out of water after!  It feels crazy that he's graduating tomorrow, we've been through all of Uni together and now it's a bit of an end of an era.  I've got a nice quote that I was thinking of writing in his card:
"I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known. So don't live down to expectations.  Go out there and do something remarkable"
In other news, I've added some photos to this post - it's my first attempt at photography in a long while so please be kind!  My mum bought me the sunflowers and my dad got me the orchid plant so I was a very lucky girl :)

Now, what you've been waiting for - the surprise!  I rang Rich this afternoon only to find out that he was on his way back home... in the new car that he'd just bought!  He'd mentioned it a few days ago that he was thinking of getting one (after he passed his test on May Day he's been itching for a car) and I think he just caved this afternoon.  It's a Ford KA in black and he's over the moon, he even went into the car on facetime to give me a tour haha, and I can't wait to give it a spin ;)
 Also, girlfriend status equals automatic shotgun, can I get a woop!
Until next time :)
