Getting in the Groove

The past month since graduation has flown by!

The first week, I decided to go to Charleston with Laura to visit Adrienne, Weatherly, and see the Matts (my wofford study buddies/lab partners, both named Matt).  We had SUCH a great time!! On the way down we stopped in Greenville to visit Rachel and Craig and see Chanel, all of whom are doing fantastic.  The beach was wonderful and VERY relaxing!

Amazing friends on a very educational boat ride :)

The next week, I was off to Amelia Island for Melia's bachelorette weekend with some wonderful ladies.  I only knew two of the other bridesmaids before that weekend and the wedding, but now I am happy to say that I have several more friends that I adore :)

It was a little windy on the deck, but the weather for the most part was perfect!

For memorial day we spent the weekend in the mountains with my family.  We went to an art festival in Blue Ridge, did some fun afternoon runs up and down the mountains, and watched some awesome SciFi original movies :)

Then came Melia's wedding last weekend.  I was so honored to have been asked to be part of it!  The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was SO fun!  We had to have a search party for the groom's ring that morning, do some minor surgery on her veil, we had one plant casualty during the ceremony and a groomsmen near casualty right after the ceremony, but otherwise everything went smoothly!  The bride looked AMAZING, and I know the two of them couldn't have been happier.  I love weddings, and I love these two wonderful people!

Beautiful!  I can't wait to see the rest of the formal pictures!

On another exciting note, my brother and sister-in-law FINALLY got their house!!  While we were house hunting, they saw a house on the same street as ours (actually about 8 houses away) that was just PERFECT for them.  We signed the contracts for our house and theirs on the same day, but because theirs was a short sale, those are complicated and take a lot longer than a regular sale.  But they FINALLY GOT IT!!! They moved in this past weekend!  It has already been amazing!  Matt and I made them a casserole as a "welcome to the neighborhood" gift while they were moving :)

Hayden and Natty's new house!!

Yesterday was my first official day of work ever!  It was a little stressful trying to remember to dot my I's and cross my T's (since every hospital does it differently), but I know in a few weeks I will have everything down, and it wont feel like I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off!  I thought that most of the day was just going to vaccine appointments, but it actually ended up being different and quite eclectic!  At the end of the day my brain was exhausted.  I think I am going to enjoy the "real world"!

Matt and I are also starting "Insanity" together (along with Hayden, Natty, and two of my new friends Elissa and Charlie), so we have an amazing accountability group to make sure we all die together.  We took the fitness test and wrote down where we are now so we can track our progress over the next 60 days.  Lets hope for some good results!

That's all for now!  Until next time!
