The College Grad

Last Saturday the boyfriend completed his undergrad degree at Michigan State University! I am so very excited for him and proud of his accomplishment! I am also happy that he'll be spending next year at MSU completing his Masters in Accounting - meaning that we'll both be done with State at the same time.

I think this picture is pretty cute - the diploma is fake and when you unroll it - it tells you just that :)

We celebrated the event by having both of our families go to dinner together at a Japanese Steak House. It's such a blast to have them cook all of your food in front of you! The 10 of us gathered around one grill/table and had a blast!

Shopping for a male college grad is - as I found out the hard way - difficult. What do you get a man who has a year left of school before he enters the professional world? Here I scoured Etsy for some really neat things for the male grad!

I just love this money clip from CosmicFirefly - Fashionable and functional!

This journal from inblue is perfect for recording all of those brilliant ideas, notes, and dreams.

These monogrammed cuff links are so cool and very professional - from Cuftlynx.

If your graduate asked for a new set of golf clubs you could help him accessories while protecting the gift at the same time. These are just great club covers from blazingneedles.

juliethefish will customize this great little business card holder with your grad's name!

There are just so many great finds on Etsy for your male grad! Customized items are most certainly a do.

I am so very excited - I finally had a moment to post a couple new things to my shop! If you get a moment go click around! I am oober excited about a new crop of headbands...

Have a great day!


  1. Oh how exciting for him! It's an achievement :) You must have had such fun shopping for him on Etsy... my favorite place to shop! I go over budget every month, hee hee!

  2. Cute ideas. Plus, you looked FABULOUS at graduation! Your shoes are fantastic!

  3. Congratulations to your boyfriend!

    And those finds you posted are great. I love the money clip.

  4. Oh, good. I linkwithin'ed to this post and wondered if I had commented on how fantastic your shoes are, and I had already. Woot!


Hey - so - what do you think?
