the weekly David and Nilla cuddle pic – “stuck in the middle with you”
picking out a Christmas tree at a Christmas tree farm!
and promptly adding edible Sweet Tart candy canes to the tree
Last year I got our tree from the food lion down the street all by myself. So this year having David and Nilla by my side to pick out the tree was pretty legit. Putting the tree up proved to be none-too-easy though, and I’m seriously considering getting a fake one next year. (Gasp! – the tree fell… twice….) Ain’t nobody got time for that!
We have friends staying with us this weekend who are interviewing at UNC for residency! I can’t believe it’s been a year since David and I were making the rounds to Virginia, Charleston, and Chapel Hill. Actually, I didn’t make the rounds to Chapel Hill… I had never been here when David announced to the crowd he matched at UNC.
That was probably one of the most exciting/strangest moments of my life. Sitting in a room full of people and David calling out where we were going to spend the next 3 years. It was weird 1) because I really didn’t know where we would be but 2) because every ounce of me wanted to stand on the chair and do a toe-touch when he announced it.. but I just has to sit there and clap. It was like my fair lady with Audrey Hepburn at the races hahaha – yelling at the top of her lungs while everyone else is quiet. Oh it’s been far too long since I have watched that movie. I fully intend to cuddle up and have a marathon of old movies over the Christmas break.
Thank you so much for reading this blog and have a wonderful weekend 🙂
