Breathing easy now...oh happy day!
I'm thinking the rehearsal dinner will probably be the same place as the reception since they give a discount.
Less than a year to go!
My wedding dress should come in the last week in August or first week in September. My veil still needs purchased. Shoes are iffy. I dearly want the ultimate "way-out-of-budget" couture but am waiting to see how the fiancée residency application process plays out. I was eyeing nude open toe pumps.
Best news of all: fiancé started his first orthopedic away rotation and is living with me for 8 weeks! It was weird seeing him so much at first (keep in mind he works 80+ hours\week). I hadn't seen him for a solid 6 weeks prior. I'm cooking and doing laundry aka playing house. Never did I think I would take the role so seriously or think that type of gal to be me. I actually find I like doing it now with him there... I must be ill.
He is raving about the place he is currently rotating with. I'm talking "Jess, I can't get my hopes up but I love it there. I'm over analyzing everything. Everyone seems to like me. One of the residents even said today that (exact words) when your here as a resident dr.___ will likely be here for ___ more years..." We are both trying to keep a realistic head about it. I know most people don't match at their #1. But seriously, if I can keep my job and he is able to moonlight, wow... Just wow.
He also started to bring up kids a few days ago!! If we place at the hospital he is currently, I could have my car and student loans paid off in 3 year (because I could stay at my job) then stay at home with kids while he moonlights during pyg3. Kids in 2 years likely. Daydreaming is fun.
