Catching up

Whew! Finals are done and I am almost half way done with my first clinical!
Here is what I've been up to lately. Warning: long post ahead ;) 
Before leaving school I found the cutest coffee shop not far from campus called yo' cup. I needed as much coffee as possible so I frequented it A LOT!

Pharmacy school is 4 years but after the third year, everyone branches off and goes on rotations. So at the end of the third year, our school has a banquet as sort of like a going away party. It was bittersweet to say the least. On this particular night, no one was thinking about the finals we had coming up on the full week of non-stop studying that was in front of us, but rather we were trying our best to enjoy the last hurrah of sorts. Of course my phone died mid-way through so I couldn't really take many pictures but it was such a fun night! 

I am sure  Pharmacy school would have been a lot less eventful without these folks.  

In the mist of it all, my favorite player of all time retired from Professional Basketball. I have been a sports FANATIC ever since I can remember. (Think wearing jerseys and playng a ton of video games while everyone else was at the mall ;) )  I have truly loved the game of basketball since I was 11 years old and Kobe Bryant played such a big part in that. Thanks for every thing Kobe!

The day after my last final ever (!!!!!!) we celebrated my sweet mama's birthday. My mom has always been one to not make a huge fuss over her birthday, Christmas, or anything else that involves presents or the spotlight being on her. So Keith and I decided a few months ago to tell her we were 'celebrating' me being done with didactic course work and once it got closer, we told her it was actually a celebration for her birthday! She was beside herself;) Keith also got a new car recently so it has been blessings all around around here :) 
It was only fitting that we went to our favorite restaurant of course!

The very beginning of our meal...

...And the very end
We each ordered a desert. I ordered cheese cake and they gave me an entire cake! I may or may not have eaten the entire thing by myself. (What can I say? I'm not one to let things go to waste ;) )

With my peeps. Love these two so much 

Wedding planning has also been in full swing around here! I held off a little due to school and just got the major things out of the way. The other weekend, I met with my bridesmaids to pick out dresses and on the way home, I got into a little fender bender. No worries, I was not at fault and both of us were fine BUT poor Penny (my car) was a little injured :(. Having to deal with my car, wedding and everything in between was NOT fun. Not even a little   

The past few weeks have gone by so quickly! I have been told that once you get done with classes (whether it be college, or grad school) life goes by quickly......and once you start working, life goes by in something very similar to warp speed! I can't wait to see what these upcoming months will bring.
Wahoo! Cheers to being one step closer!
