Life of a Med School Wife

Questions Sara asked me:

1. What was your happiest moment? 
As cliche as this may be, it was that moment where I sat across from my husband in the sealing room, where we were sealed husband and wife for eternity. 
2. What did you want to be when you grew up?
I loved building things. So as soon as I learned what an architect was, that was my dream career!
3. Favorite dessert?
Farr's frozen yogurt, hands-down.
4. Who is the most influential person in your life?
Probably my best friend, Rachelle. She is the most loving, humble, and sincere person I know and I still strive every day to have those attributes. 
5. Embarrassing moment?
When I knocked over the dirty sample spoons at an ice-cream store. The spoons landed in a few of the ice cream containers.
6. What is your favorite outfit? 
A baggy t-shirt and skinny jeans. :)
7. Why did you start blogging?
As stated in my first ever blog entry: "I am super excited to officially start a blog. There are too many streams of "ah-hah" moments and creativeness trapped in my head that needed to come out. So here I am."
8. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
I see myself done with school. I see myself with at least one year of teaching experience behind me. I see myself with at least 3 kiddies. I see myself living in a house and not an apartment. 
9. One thing you always keep on hand/in your purse?
10.  What is one of your biggest pet peeves?
I uh... have many pet peeves. And one of my biggest pet peeves is when there are two sounds going on at the same time. (i.e. a movie in one room and music blaring in the other room)
11. If you could travel to one place, where would it be?
Anywhere in Africa!
