Stopping by to catch up on what has been a whirlwind month so far!

Nathan finished his family med rotation just in time for the July 4th weekend, so we got to enjoy three nice days together. We enjoyed some time with family and friends, ate some good food, and saw LOTS of fireworks.

BBQ ribs on the 4th!

The great weather disappeared after the weekend though, and on a particularly rainy day, we decided a date night was in order. Zach and Tim got me a gift card to one of our favorite Thai restaurants for my birthday, so we put it to good use!

Love impromptu date nights :)

Wednesday was a big day for us…Nathan got his Step 1 score back! Needless to say, we were both very eager to find out the results after waiting for over a month…Β 2015-07-08 11.28.56

As you would imagine – he totally rocked it!!! I am so, so, SO proud of him and we are still letting the good news sink in. Just feels so great to have that behind us and to know that all the hard work paid off!

We celebrated in style on Friday night with a bonfire at the Beachys’ house to burn all of his notes and flashcards. It was great to spend time with family and felt so good to get those out of the house!Β 2015-07-10 20.13.47 2015-07-10 20.13.49 2015-07-10 20.13.59 2015-07-10 20.28.29

On Saturday the sun came out just long enough for a picnic lunch at the IMA, where we got engaged. I didn’t take any pictures except for this interesting bench which caught my eye.Β 2015-07-11 13.11.47

Wrapped in yarn to keep it warm in July, I guess?

Really soaking up the extra time with Nathan this month that he’s not in school and looking forward to all the fun we have planned for July! Hope summer is treating you all well πŸ™‚

  1. I should have bought his pharm cards…left them scattered around my house…people would think I was SOOO smart! CONGRATS to the two of you πŸ™‚

    1. LOL! Just casually scattered around the house huh? That’d go perfectly with your new “decluttering” M.O.! πŸ˜‰
