That Just Happened

Thursday, March 29, 2012

So, my sweet husband has an exam on Friday in Gastroenterology. He tells me this is one of the hardest ones from the first year of medical school. So, it has left me with a lot of "Me" time this week. I think I could have painted the walls lime green and he probably would not have even noticed. 

Tuesday night, myself and three other med school wives had dinner & drinks together. My light weight self got tipsy off of two beers. I was so ashamed, good thing I had a DD. But, I did have a fabulous time! We talked about how we can't wait for Friday and how challenging these times are. We also patted ourselves on the back for being proclaimed Bread Winners. I mean it really is a hilarious concept. 

But, honestly as hard as it is I like a lot of "me" time. It's funny how good I am at passing time. I can entertain myself for hours listening to iTunes, organizing playlists or editing artists names, etc. 

I've also listened to The Civil Wars album on repeat for over 7 hours last night. 

I am not your typical "house wife" type. I don't prefer to bake, craft, or clean. I like to listen to music, take pictures, play with the dog, watch Criminal Minds, draw stick figures on paper, and browse pinterest. 

Oh, and last night I remembered how cool it was to use iPhotobooth.. Definitely passed an hour easily doing this. I even let Rayne (our pup) guest star. We also made a video from the roller coaster wallpaper. It was fun. But, I'm not brave enough to post it.

Don't mind my tourist T-shirt from Hawaii circa 2005 


  1. I am obsessed with Criminal Minds! I was sucked into an episode yesterday while studying, needless to say that minimal studying got accomplished. I hope you're having a wonderful Thursday!

  2. Fun! Don't feel bad about being a light weight -- I am too and after two beers, I can talk anyone's ear off! lol I have been thinking a lot about my hubby entering his first year of med-school and I am wondering, how did you meet other med-school wives?

  3. photoshoots with puppies are the best!
    and i am a light weight too.
    i consider it being "fun size" for parties.
    xx jes

  4. When Brandon was in Law School I had plenty of nights like this! Love it :-)

  5. I can't get over how pretty your blog is! Just beautiful. Your puppy is SO, SO SWEET!

  6. Britt have you ever watched Greek? Because you SO look like Frannie to me! Which you should totally take as a compliment, because she is BEAUTIFUL! I've been meaning to tell you I thought you looked like her for awhile!

  7. And this is why I LOVE you...not domestic...hee-hee! Have you added the Draw Something app yet? OMG! Talk about a great way to pass the time...and it will make you laugh out fun!
    Because Shanna Said So

  8. what's some me time without our furry friends right?!?!

  9. I don't like to bake, craft, or clean either! Looks like a good way to pass the time with the pup. :)

  10. I love this post too! I can totally relate. I'm not a "housewife" type either. You and I really have a lot in common. The things you listed are some of my favorite things to do too and since I've been unemployed I've had a lot of me time too! Having a puppy definitely makes it better! :)

  11. Looks like you are having fun, girl! I'm a dork, I'm totally the housewife type : ) I saw Hunger Games yesterday and looove the Civil Wars now.


  12. I love like a million things from this post. I totally relate to--being breadwinner (woot!), excited for Fridays for a couple days with husband, love The Civil Wars album, being an untypical wife (me too!), pinterest, taking photos, watching Criminal Minds, and playing with dog. :)

    Friday is near!

  13. This sounds so much like me. I love doing all the things you just mentioned expect maybe watch criminal minds (its freaks me out) I also and get pretty tipsy from 2 drinks... at least we are cheap when it comes to drinking fun :)

  14. you and me both -- i can entertain myself just surfing the web or reading a good book. i really don't mind being by myself. ;)

  15. I love Criminal Minds, and I have no intention of giving up to be more housewifely!


  16. Oh girl I do wished you lived here! My hubs is working on a specialist in psych and I'm essentially a live alone bread winner. I could paint walls green too with no notice. Sadly there are only two guys in this program currently, J being one of them, and the other guys wife is weird lol!

  17. I love this! :) And that's how I spend my "me time" too, except I don't have a dog so I read instead, and I generally watch How I Met Your Mother instead of Criminal Minds. But, you know, mostly similar ;)

  18. Ha, ha, I'm such a light weight also.
    Good job bread winner!!
    I'm a nurse and I can't even imagine how hard med school must be....yikes

  19. cute sharing!!! what is your husband in med school for?
    that's so commendable!!!

  20. I spend my me-time the exact same way. And I love it! Honestly, I don't think I got enough of it while Y was in med school. I guess that's what residency is for though!
