A Weekend to Remember

It is so crazy to think of all that has happened this weekend!

{1} I had my medical school interview on Friday.  I was pleased with how I handled myself, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.  Now I'm just relieved to have that major step behind me! All that's left to do is wait for the outcome....and pray! :)

{2} A friend of ours from Mexico was in town this week, so we got to spend some time with her.  Danbi was our guide in Oaxaca, Mexico the past two summers, and it was great getting to catch up!  Friday night we went out for sushi with some friends, and she headed to visit her family on Saturday.  Hopefully we'll be seeing her in Mexico next summer!
Crab Crunch with eel sauce...yum!!!
(Danbi is the awesome Asian in the middle :D)

{3} I actually finished all of my homework that had been piling up as I focused on other things for a few days.  Now, I get to blog and enjoy the rest of my Sunday in peace :)

{4}  Mikey and I cheered the Steelers on into their first victory in their first game of the season! Go Steelers!!


designing bug

I am no interior designer, but I do love finding something fun that just seems perfect for our home! Whenever I find something in a store that seems "just right," I have to snap it up (if the funds allow)!  Here is the newest addition to our home :)  I am loving it.  And as usual, it is giving me the designing bug to go out and find pillows and candles and what-not to go with my new purchase!!

Any pointers from other knick-knack loving ladies out there?
I'd love to hear what you do to spruce up or personalize your space!


a wee bit of me Wednesday

{one} what’s your favorite day of the week and why?
Thursdays, because I get to volunteer at the Dream Center Clinic, which I LOVE,
and then I have lunch with my awesome hubs.
And then I REST and get some work done for the remainder of the day :)

{two} if you could have a glimpse of your future, would you choose to see it and what time would you want to see?
Normally I would say no, for sure.  But right now, I wouldn't mind flashing forward to October 1st when I find out whether or not I get into my first choice med school!

{three} if you could be any animal, which animal would you be?
I would be my dog Oliver...he's got the life.

{four} do you have a lucky number?
not really. but I have always been oddly fond of the number 18.

{five} if you could bring one famous person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Mother Teresa...I would love to talk to her about her work and ideas!

{six} fill in the blank: peanut butter and ____________.
jelly fish.
My dad used to always say that when you see a jelly fish...
you know there's a peanut butter fish nearby!

{seven} would you rather live by the mountains or by the beach?
BOTH! but the beach if I had to choose.
I'd much rather swim in the ocean!

{eight} do you have any tattoos?
nope.  I don't think I ever will.

{nine} if you could retire tomorrow, what would you do?
keep working!
I'm not sure I'll ever retire...at least not until I'm really, really old.
If I do, I'd travel and volunteer at clinics!

{ten} what is your favorite all time movie?
Mulan.  I just can't help that this old favorite is still near and dear to my heart :)
