So I am proud to announce that I can now be known as chef. OK I guess it was technically official in December when I finished school and externship and received my diploma but today, 6 months later, I had my walk. It was so fun to see all my friends and to hear all the adventures and places people are working. We had a speaker, Eric Hilton, the former Vice Chairman Hilton Hotels Corporation. He is a cute old guy and had some great words of advice. He had a great sense of humor. He started out by saying all graduating students please stand up and look under your chairs. Some had a white envelope with a 1dollar bill inside. And his quote was, " Just goes to show that you have to get off your butt to make a dollar. How true is that! I think that is great advice and a great way of putting it into perspective. Afterwards we went to a reception at the school, where I showed my parents, grandmother and Mckenzee where I was for 12 months of my life, talked with chef and sampled food. Then we all went to BJ's Brewhouse for an awesome dinner. Thanks Dad! I am so grateful for the friendships I have made and the education I have received. I want to thank my family for their support especially my wonderful husband for believing in me and making it possible. Love ya!
