Hi everyone! Keeping my posts recent is more difficult than I thought, especially considering that I spent the past 3 months traveling and interviewing for residency (which is coming up scarily quickly!). I did a total of–brace yourself–17 interviews, in 6 different states. Jeffrey–brace yourself harder–did a ridiculous 23 interviews. Sheesh. So 3 months and a lot of dollars later, we’re back home!
Recently, Jeffrey and I received a sweet surprise in the mail:
TA-DAAA! Our super awesome photographer/videographer’s company (Mauricio Alanis) made us 3 copies, one for ourselves and 1 for each set of parents. Rather than mailing it to them (BORING), we decided to make a HUGE deal out of it and have my parents and brothers come up from Mexico, and the in-laws come in from not-Mexico, and have a viewing party! It was fabulous. Because of our interviews, the huge ordeal had to be planned a month in advance, so all parties involved got to build up their excitement for 30 days until our interviews were over. We DID allow them the following sneak peak… enjoy!
AWESOME, RIGHT?!?!?!?!? We had THE BEST wedding EVER. For real.
I have come to realize the importance of recognizing the little opportunities in life which can be turned into something really really great and memorable. Sure, it was slightly inconvenient to make everybody drive over to Houston to watch with us at the same time, but it was totally worth the effort. Even better, my parents brought back our beautiful mini-Schnauzer Wolfgang, whom they took care of all month (GRACIAS!!!).
The in-laws were awesome enough to provide the DELICIOUS fajitas for dinner, and Jeffrey kept our margarita glasses full all night long (or in the case of my mom, who is–GASP!–allergic to tequila, her piña colada glass)!
We missed Tyler (bro-in-law), but he’s busy being too cool for us in DENMARK. Even Bella (pet-in-law) got to come!
We ended the night with a delicious slice of cake, courtesy of ME
Thanks for coming, everyone! Jeffrey and I have THE BEST family.
