I'm Still Here! (Friday Updates 6.26.15)

So, I have been no where to be found the last couple of weeks!

I've been making the transition from school to my externship. I've been working for general surgery and attending various corporate trainings for the last three weeks now! It's been great. I'm rooming patients and assisting in minor office surgeries. So fun!

Did I mention I passed my certification test?!?!

On top of all that, my BFF Sara Jane was in from Pennsylvania for a visit. She brought along her husband and their two year old, Isaac. Sara and I have known each other since we were 12 I usually get to see her once a year, but her visit makes it two this year!

It was a short visit, but a great one. We looks Isaac to the children's museum and the zoo! I love spending time downtown.

I feel so blessed to have some many visitors this summer ! Nick's childhood friend, his wife, and their little boy arrive today for a visit, my sister comes on July 11, and my dad visits Michigan the last week of July. I still can't believe that I get to see some many of my favorite people this year!

Birthday season has officially started! Nick celebrated his 32nd last Wednesday, today my brother turns 33, my step brother's birthday in on the 30th and my sister and I have July birthdays. Not to mention my niece, mom, and dad all have August birthdays. Birthdays are my favorite holidays!

Hope you guys are having fun!
Watch for a giveaway on Monday.
