Smarty Pants

I just have to brag on my husband for a minute. He just finished his first year in the graduate program at the NewSchool of Architecture and, believe me when I tell you, he worked his butt off. Last quarter he put together a portfolio of his work in order to apply for the Presidential Scholarship. This award presents students with scholarships in varying amounts up to $10,000 based on their leadership and portfolios. 

Well, we've been waiting and waiting to hear back from the scholarship committee and finally Paul got an email from them today. Not only did he get the scholarship, he was awarded the highest amount!! Even though I knew he totally deserved it, we were both in shock! He called me at work to tell me and Mrs. Prego-Emotional here started crying at my desk. I am SOOO proud of him! And with the baby coming this year, this scholarship couldn't have come at a better time. What a blessing! 

Here is just a little bit of his work from the past year...


  1. ahhh! that is so exciting! Go Paul! There is nothing better than bragging on your hubs!

  2. Patrick and I are so happy for Paul! Good job!

  3. Many congrats for Paul; many tissues for Emily.


I love to hear from you! Thanks for visiting!
