Let me just say, I haven't seen my husband in about a week and a half. We have both been so busy with school, and in and out, we have barely had enough time to have a conversation. Well, he finished school yesterday and has a week off before he starts his last class in nursing school! Woohoo! Anyways, he was so sweet and woke up and took me to school this morning. On the car ride here we had some time to talk. When we are almost to school, this is what he says to me:

"Don't put all your piggies in the blanket"

I said, "Baby, don't you mean 'Don't put all your eggs in one basket'?"

That kid never stops cracking me up. And is it wierd that I knew exactly what he was trying to say?

I love and miss that boy!

A Chorus Line

I am so blessed to have a wonderful mom that buys me season tickets to the Orpheum every year. Usually it is me, my mom, my grandmother, and my aunt. It is always a great way for us to spend quality time together.

Last night, Patrick was lucky enough to use my grandmothers ticket, and we went to see "A Chorus Line".

For those of you who have never seen it, it is an audition within a play that takes place in the 1970s. And let me tell you, it is SO 1970s. The dancing, the costumes, the music, everything! It all took place on the same set, which can be a little unexciting, but there was great character development to keep us on our toes. The last show Patrick and I went to was "Wicked," and let me tell you, he was blown away. I was definitely worried that he was gonna be ready to leave half way through "A Chorus Line," because it was so visually un-stimulating. It was definitely different than what I usually enjoy. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was good, I just wasn't blown away.

It was definitely nothing compared to my favorite:

Or our newest favorite:

Birthday blues

Yes, I turned 25 today, and I am at school studying ALL DAY - are you surprised? Why does 25 feel like the end of my life as I know it? Is it possible that it is because I have spent the last year with only one thing on my mind - medical school?

The scariest thing is that by the time 30 gets here, it's quite possible that nothing will have changed. Yes, we will probably be in a different city, own a house, and *maybe* have a kid - but won't I be in the same place - spending day after day working endlessly at a goal that wont be fulfilled until I'm 35?

Can you tell that this birthday thing is really getting to me? Oh well, as they say, it's my party, and I WILL cry if I want to!
