It's been a long couple of weeks. Last Saturday, September 29, I headed to San Diego for the annual AOA convention. I went as a student delegate from OSU. I went with another girl whose husband is a third year at OSU. We had a great time. We met some really fun SAA members from other schools. It was great to hear about their experiences as medical student spouses and what their lives were like. San Diego is just gorgeous. I already told Kody I'm going to find all the residencies there and he has to want to do one of those. :) He just laughed as he usually does when I say things like that, but in all honesty I wouldn't be too disappointed if I had to spend four or five years out there! We went to visit The Midway. It is a decommissioned Naval aircraft carrier that is now a museum. It was amazing. You don't realize how big those things are until you really get to walk around in it. We spent our days at lecutres and meetings and then our evenings we either had planned activities or we went out ourselves. It was a grand time and I am so glad I had the opportunity to go. I learned a lot and met a lot of great people. Next year it is in Vegas. I can't wait.
I got back on Wednesday so I had a short work week, which I was very thankful for. The two hour time change got to me. This weekend I went to Edmond Friday night to mess with some prescription mix ups. I got to see my parents before they left for their cruise. They are going to Boston and cruising along New England and into Canada for ten days. I'm so jealous. I know that part of the country is just gorgeous in the fall. Saturday Bailey and I drove to Bartlesville because Kasey was in town this weekend for Columbus Day. We ate a lot and watched the OU/Texas and Florida/LSU games. I guess I can't be too disappointed with the outcomes of the games. OU of course won. YAY! Florida lost in the last two minutes. They were up the whole game. It tore my heart out. They played a great game, probably one of the best ones I've seen all season considering how great LSU is. I think they will finish the season strong. They are so young...the next few years are going to be exciting. The other exciting thing is Florida State is doing a little better so the FLA/FSU game we are going to at the end of November will be really exciting. I can't wait. We leave in seven weeks. YAY! I can't wait to be there and see my family. Go Gators!
Tyler had Ryan on Friday night! She was 8lbs 4oz. I didn't get to visit because I was heading home and I didn't want to invade so early in Ryan's life....although I'm sure she would have loved me! Kody and I are so excited to meet her though! It's so strange when your friends you have known forever start to have children. It's so exciting and I am so happy for Tyler and Darin!
Kody and I are going to take Bailey to help us pick out our Halloween pumpky this week. I'm so excited to start decorating for all the holidays. YAY!
