moving on up.

If I was a bragger, I would not be able to keep myself from bragging about my husband's hard work in grad school this year. Thankfully I'm not because he'd be blushing and I'd be sinning. I'll tell you this much - he's in the middle of getting a master's degree in ONE YEAR which means thousands of pages of reading and hundreds of pages of writing. And when he told me his grades so far, I was SHOCKED. He's not just getting by, he's taking care of business. Ok, let me stop before I start bragging.

The real dilemma, what in the world do I wear to his graduation?
What do I wear to say "Are you serious, you genius?! Good job! I can't believe you got a master's degree in a year and still are the greatest husband and dad on earth!!!!" Here are some things I'm thinking.

simple & sophisticated

colorful & playful?



on the road to elegant?

or, all out dressssssssed up?

No matter what, Nick and I have decided I WILL be wearing nude heels.
I think I decided a year ago I was going to do that, in this post.
oops. For real this time, I will.


Also, let's be for real.
I would say, "vote on these and I'll buy one!".
But ya'll know I'm going to go to Ross and try to find something for $8.
I'll let you know how it goes:)

so if ross has the colorful and playful dress (for $8), you should go for that. i think you would look lovely in it. :)

hmmm... good choices! I think all out dressed up is my favorite just because how many times do you really get to get that dressed up! That said, whatever he will enjoy you in the most (simple one is classy, playful one is sexy and adorable, on the road to elegant is sassy but pretty much your style so it might be fun to push the envelope a little). BTW, I know I mainly comment on the voting posts... I get scared to write more serious comments ;) Love you Jess - you will look Beautiful no matter what you wear and CONGRATS Nick!

i re-watched the blindside this weekend and was re-inspired to get nude heels. they're hard to find (affordably!) let me know where you find yours. only mine have to be kitten heels bc let's be honest, i can't be walking around nursing homes all day in stilettos :) you're going to look awesome. good job nick!

I have to say either simple and elegant (but not strapless), or my fav... all dressed up!

hey look! #1 for 8.50!: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog_name=FOREVER21&category_name=dress&product_id=2037392595&Page=1

F21 just blows my mind sometimes.

also: I remember Niels mentioning observing a "parenting moment" b/t Nick and one-year-old Elias when we were first pregnant, and he was really impressed and encouraged to be that kind of dad. And congrats on being done, that is HUGE.

ANY little number, $8 or $88, with a pair with nude heels and a great accessory is going to be perfect!
