Catching up – Month of May

So I apologize that it has been about a month since I have updated everyone on our happenings, but let me tell you, things have been a little hectic. So here is the run down. 1. Living Situation: Earlier on I mentioned that we were house hunting because we would be in the area for a minimum…

Spring Time In DC

Every year everyone waits very impatiently for the beautiful cherry blossoms to bloom. Last year we planned our engagement photos around them… that was challenging. This year, due to the long cold winter the wait was a little longer than normal. This past weekend while the cherry blossoms were at their “peak bloom” we were…

House Hunting

Since future Dr. Hubby and I are staying somewhat in the area we have jumped right into the next item on our “to-do” list… house hunting! We figured there was no time to waste since he will be starting residency July 1st and we will be busy with wedding related things through mid June. We are…

Follies 2014

Every year future Dr. Hubby’s medical school puts on what they call “Follies.” It is a bunch of skits, dances and videos making fun of their experiences and an opportunity to share their other talents. The entire show is put on by the medical school- everything from the production to the music. It is really…

Match Day 2014

As expected future Dr. Hubby and I had a very sleepless Thursday night. I woke up to him watching videos on Hulu at 3:30am because he just couldn’t sleep. Seriously, the morning couldn’t come soon enough. Before heading to the school we had to stop by the hospital for future Dr. Hubby to get some blood work…

DC’s 4th Snow Day & He Matched!

Another Second Look & Final Rank List

In my last post I ended with saying: “In the next 2.5 weeks we will be nailing down the list and hoping for the best. ” Well, in those 2.5 weeks we took a little trip! The most important thing that I learned from future Dr. Hubby’s residency interview process is to keep an open…

Rank Lists & 2nd Looks

Time is flying by and Match Day will be here before we know it! Future Dr. Hubby’s rank list is due February 26th which means most of our conversations for the past week have revolved around various residency programs around the country. So much so I have implemented a rule- no talking about rank list/…

In Sickness and In Health.

“I promise to be true to you in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health. I will love you and honor you all the days of my life” In about 115 days I will be standing at the alter, facing my best friend, reciting these words in front of our family and…

Interview Update

So we are about six interviews into this and I have learned a few things about the residency interview process thus far that I thought I’d share  with you. 1. It is a total crap shoot. When you send out your applications you tend to have a general idea of where you think you will be…
