Welcome to the Real World, Linda!
After some detours here and there, my baby sister, Linda has officially graduated with a Dental Hygiene degree!! YAY! I am so proud of her and believe she will clean the heck out of your teeth!! :-)
Who knew the kid with a crooked tooth would grow up to be a Dental Hygienist (with great looking teeth, btw)? I need to find an old pic of her to post - and embarrass!
After the fairly short ceremony at Lamar University's Montagne Center, friends and family gathered at my Great-uncle's house to stuff our faces with homemade goodies!
My great-aunt made bo kho (beef stew), goi (shrimp salad), and some che (dessert). My mom made xoi and eggrolls!
I made a cake in San Antonio and dragged it all the way to Beaumont! It got damaged during the shipping process but I did happen to get a pic of it prior to my 4.5hour trek home. I just want to mention that I only messed up her name with the cake lid -- the rest of the cake was damaged by someone else. :-)
We spent the night eating, drinking, and general merriment. It was a perfect night for the perfect sister!!

So proud of you Linda! Congratulations and I'm sure your future will be full of plaque and tarter (job security)!
