it's official.

I'm a doctor. I graduated from medical school yesterday. I was blessed to have about 30 of my family and closest friends there to cheer me on. After 21 consecutive years of school, I am finally done! It's been quite the journey, with lots of victories and defeats, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Heath got me a pair of diamond earrings to replace the one I lost. He also got me a Wii! I actually wasn't aware that I wanted a Wii, but we played for about 5 hours yesterday and I'm hooked! My back and arms are so sore from golfing, boxing, baseball and several hours of MarioKart!

My parents are getting me my first Pediatric stethoscope, in baby pink of course, but until that comes, here was my gift:

It's my Doctor kit from when I was a kid! How cute is that? I love it and I'm so glad they saved it. I had forgotten that I had one until I saw it. Now, I vividly remember listening to my parents' heart and lungs with that plastic stethoscope, testing their reflexes and giving out as many shots as I could.

I don't have any pics of graduation yet, and I'm not sure I'll post them considering how hideous the academic regalia and cap are. But, Beka posted a few pics on her blog.

I could not have asked for a better week with the amazing friends I have made over the last 4 years. Graduation week was a blast. From a carnival-themed Revelry to a night of volleyball, it was the perfect way to say goodbye.

We'll miss you guys :(

And a Mug 'O Wine.

Senior Banquet 2008.

The Fab 5. I definitely would not have survived without these boys. Congrats, Doctors!

One of the craziest girls I know. I'll definitely be coming to Dallas to partay, Mer!

And, the night wouldn't be complete without me losing something, breaking something (bones included) or ruining an article of clothing. Thank goodness Heath carries an extra shirt in his truck.

Ending the week elebrating with some great friends.
