Man oh man, we have had the best week of our lives!! Ryan matched to UT Houston’s Orthopedic surgery residency program and I am elated to be staying here at home right next to our families, friends and of course our little nephew! On a sad note, also on match day my little puppy Minnie was at the groomers and had to get stitches due to being cut, needless to say, last Friday was quite the emotional rollercoaster for us. Luckily, Minnie and Miss Bear are in great care with my parents while Ryan and I are on vacation (seriously don't know what I would have done without them)!
Then Sunday morning it was on to the plane and off to Vail with my husband’s side of the family as a Christmas present. So here I am blogging from the DREAM world of Vail! Isn’t it crazy how quickly your luck/life can change? The week before match day Ryan and I were feeling pretty bummed out with so many unanswered questions…
Did we even match?
Where did we match?
Are we going to have to move?
Where are we going to live?
What if I have to move The Blonde Pantry?
and all of the worries that come with major life changes. Since Friday I have been in a euphoric state and feeling completely on top of the world…. Just a little reminder that God has a plan and the best thing we can do is just to trust in him that all will work out the way it is supposed to!! Below is a few photos from Match Day and if you are already friends with me on facebook then you have probably already seen these shots but you can never have too many photos!! :)
