The title speaks for itself. I have yet to figure out how this blog thing works. If anyone is actually reading this please let me know because as it is now I am writing to myself. Until I figure this out I will just pretend people are reading it :)
Things are crazy busy right and slightly stressful, especially for J. He is now officially a third year medical student and it studying for his step 1 boards (for anyone that doesn't know this is pretty much the most important test; residency programs look at those score once you graduate to decide if they want him in their program). Needless to say, J is not in the best of moods. His test is June 11th and on June 13th we are packing up and moving to Port Saint Lucie where he will be doing the clinical portion of med school. We both are so excited to get the heck out of Tallahassee and are counting down the days. We were able to find a house to rent and I was able to get a job fairly easily on a pediatric unit. We have a lot of packing to do which I am really dreading :(
I have so much more to talk about but I am going to stop here and find out if anyone is actually reading this first. Thanks!

Well, I guess I was slacking a little because it has been three months since my last post!!! I guess and update is due. Our wedding was March 7th and it was absolutely the most perfect day of my life. Everything went perfectly! I couldn't have asked for anything better. We didn't go on a honeymoon because J had only a few days off before he had to go back to school :( We did, however, get ourselves a little present....a puppy!!! We got a bichon frise. His name is Mattie and he is a cute little fluffball. He has definantly given us some insight into what it will be like to be parents (even though I know he is much easier).
Speaking of parents, a couple of weeks ago I flew out to North Carolina to visit my best friend from highschool and her new little baby! He is 2 months old and the cutest, most precious little baby I have ever seen. It was so amazing to see my best friend as a mom; she is doing such a wonderful job.
In about a month J and I are moving for his 3rd year of medical school so we are very excited and very busy getting everything ready. I have a job interview this friday and then I will be house hunting all day after that! I am really looking forward to going somewhere new and the adventures to come.
Last but not least for the updates; I am training for a sprint triathlon in October!!! I am so excited for this new challenge. Last year I did a half marathon and I have done a million 5K's in the past so now I am looking for something different. I plan on doing a half marathon again somtime later this year. Okay I think that is it for the updates. Now if I can only figure out how to get people to read these posts :)
Have a wonderful day!
