I've been meaning to type up this post for awhile now. I did, after all, get my ring on September 16th. I know, I'm a tad behind schedule. A lot of this is my fault. I've been so lazy. It's shameful. But, on the other hand, I did leave for a week long trip to Colorado shortly after Ring Day (But that's a post for another time. Honest!) so things did get a bit hectic for awhile there.
Anyway, I've finally got my pictures sorted through, and I'm super excited to share them with you guys!
So, without further ado, my Ring Day!
My parents drove down the morning of, and it was really exciting when they showed up! I wanted to be over to the Alumni Center early, so we headed over shortly after they arrived. And, true to form, the first placed I stopped on the way was Starbucks. Because I don't like to start my day when I'm absent my coffee.

Mom's behind the camera. :)
|Our usual bookstore is getting a remodel.|
So it's taken up residence here in the Coliseum.
|Our Yell Leaders (we don't have cheerleaders) up on the balcony.|
We had a quick Yell Practice about five minutes before the first pick up!
|Right under that maroon and white balloon arch.|
That's where my Aggie Ring is. :)
|I'm presented with my Aggie Ring! WHOOP!|
|Putting it on for the first time! :D|
|This is the picture Mom took of me getting my picture taken. :)|
The professional photo has reached my house—I haven't seen it yet. I haven't had a chance to go home yet! But Mom says it looks good. So here's hopin'!
And I'm already developing a tan-line where I wear my ring. Because I wear it pretty much all the time. I just take it off to sleep. :)
It feels really great to finally have what's come to be, to me at least, a symbol of all I've accomplished. Just looking at it reminds me of all the hard work I've done, and all the hours I've put in, and the effort I've put forth. It's all worth it. So worth it. And I'm so proud! I'm glad I finally got to share this experience with you guys. :)
