a break from our regularly scheduled program

I got my pictures from Match Day, when Jake found out where his residency would be, online this weekend so you get to see some of them, too.  I try not to flood this blog with tons of personal, non-crafty related things because that's not why I have it, but this was only one of the most important dates in the entirety of Jake's med school career.  So I'm sharing it here.  Plus I don't post a lot of pictures of myself anywhere ever, and I know people enjoy seeing them.  And yes, the color clothing choices are NOT a coincidence.  This was on St. Patrick's Day.





Definitely a great day.  There isn't much else to say besides that.  I'll be back to my normal programming tomorrow.

  8. Thanks so much Theresa and Duni!

    Duni, Match Day is when all of the US medical students find out where they matched for their residencies.

  13. Nope, both of the other couples in those pictures are actually staying in Iowa City. The girl in the second photo (who's not me) and the guy in the last photo (who's not Jake) will be doing internal medicine residencies at the University of Iowa here.

    Thanks, for sure!
