Hello Again

My test is over!  God willing I will never have to take that test again.  It was 2 days which was pretty exhausting.  Now, after successful completion of intern year, I will be able to work independently as a general practitioner.  However I will continue my residency, as my true goal is to specialize in psychiatry (currently in year 1 of a 4 year residency).

After sitting around the house studying in sweats, I've been feeling like a complete bum - and likely looking like one too. I need some cuter lounge clothes people! Even my VS pink sweats just seem so college.  Since I had a completion-of-Step-3-present-to-myself excuse, I got two sets from Plum Pretty Sugar.  With my anniversary coming up, this will be a nice way to show Aaron girls don't completely fall apart after you marry them.  And now back to shopping at Target.

Last of all...
Do you like gardening?  Growing up, I always avoided helping my mom in the garden - and in all other areas of housework.  But now that I'm a newlywed I feel an urge to be a super wife-cook-gardener-cleaner.  I have a hydrangea bush that will be turning 1 year old this spring.   
My hydrangea bush last year

Last year's geraniums - these were great. They put out all summer.

I read about these Tristant Strawberry plants on the Southern Living blog and I think this would be an excellent addition to my tiny garden this year.

Do you garden?  Any suggestions?  I need some nice perennials to plant by our sidewalk - last year's died!  I'm still working on my green thumb.   Have a great week!

  1. Ah I love Plum Pretty Sugar!!! I bet you got some cute things!!! I'm definitely a bum with my sleepwear... Old t-shirts.. I even saw some cute PJ's at TARGET as you mentioned after that I was thinking I might need. Perhaps I need to upgrade to more adult sleepwear ;) But then again all I see is dollar signs. Sigh.. Can I win the lotto?!
