Celebration Time!

Might have told y'all that The Hubz is Out of Town. Visiting the Gals at College. So, while the Cat's Away, the Mice will, well, sleep.

Hit the Hay at about 9:30 or so laste nite. OK, we admit it. This Teaching Janx just Wears. Us. Out. And after five days of Crashing the Classroom, we just wanna...

Cheer?

Well, we do now! Ella Numera Una, she of Great Compassion & a Very Tender Heart, took the LSATs three weeks ago today. The idea is to go to law school, pass the bar, & Help People. As simple as that.

Ella woke Her Humble Mom from her Scribely Slumbers about 10:30 last nite with The News. She passed. And Pretty Big, We. Might. Add. Congrats are in order, All the Way Around!

That's Ella Numera Una in the snap above, on the right, with 2 College Swim Team Buds at Disney World a couple of years ago. Her Mean Old Madre never took her to Disney, so at the Ripe Old Age of 19, she got Her Own Self there. And, it appears, into one of those parades on the Main Drag, in front of Cinderella's Castle.

And she got her own self to this point in her life, too. We're thinkin' Dreams Do Come True, after all. Numera Una plans to apply to her Top 3 Law School Choices next weekend, she says. These outfits have rolling admission, so Ella might hear from them by Christmas. What a present that would be!

Congrats, Baby! Your Proud Mama couldn't sleep, so she drafted this post, instead. Can't you see her smiling? Three Cheers All Around!

Yaaay! And yes. Disney World (or, in our house, "Ninny Whirl") is, like, amazing.

Yay for Ella Numera Una! And Yay for her Mama the Scribe, too!! Do you REALLY think she did this all on her own?

Congrats! How wonderfully fan-tab-u-lous. You may say that Ella Numera Una got there on her own, but we ALL know that behind every successful woman stands the mom that got her there. Woo-hoo to you! And it's not even Woo-hoo Wednesday ;-)

Congrats and gifts all the way around!

Thanks for visiting me back! And Lula is the one who helped me pick out my outfit (which you can see in the previous post). I think she did a fantastic job as my self-appointed stylist for the party!
