New Yorkers

So, I have been putting off this post for a week now. I'm thinking that if I don't talk about it, it will just go away! Well, I don't think that's going to happen so I might as well share the news. On March 18th, we found out where Ryan matched for residency - Albany, NY. Yes, the farthest place possible. I'm not going to lie and say we are excited. Cause we're not. But we are getting used to it and trying to be positive. I'm just glad the pit in my stomach is finally gone! I was in full panic attack mode for 3 days after we found out. Shortness of breath, crying spells - it was bad! We will be there for 4 years then it's Arizona or bust!

After we got the news about residency, we needed to get out of Dodge, so we headed up to my parent's cabin.

It was just what we needed to get our minds off moving across the country. And Griffin loves the cabin so he was in heaven all weekend.

We will be moving this summer. Ry starts July 1st and I'm due to have the baby the first part of August, so I will stay behind and have the baby here. Ry will come back for the birth then go right back to NY. I will recover for a few weeks then fly out with my parents and the boys to join Ryan in Albany.

Breathe, Holly, breathe....

Girl Time

Last weekend, my girlfriends and I took a much needed trip up to my parent's cabin for some quality girl time. Boy did we have fun! We talked, ate, laughed, cried, ate some more and talked some more. It was relaxing and rejuvenating. We stayed for 2 nights which was perfect. I love these girls. They are like sisters. Some of us have known each other since birth. Some came around in jr. high. We have so many fun memories together. And we just keep making more. I feel so blessed to call them my friends.

Nat turned 30 while we were there, so we partied hard at the cabin with some Texas Sheet cake and homemade ice cream.

Thanks girls for the lovely weekend! 'Till next year!
We missed those girls who could not make it.

Upcoming events: Tomorrow we find out the sex of the baby and next Thursday we find out where we will be moving for residency! Excited for the first, very nervous for the second.

Cali Trip

Two weeks ago, Ryan had to go to L.A. to take a required test for 4th year med students. And you know who lives in L.A. - Lucy! So I had no choice but to go with him of course! Griffy too. We had so much fun kissin' on little Lucy and hangin' with Nat and Dave. Ry took his test on Thursday, so Nat and I headed to The Grove to walk around and look for celebs. No such luck. But it was a fun place and we got to ride the trolley and have Pinkberry. My fav frozen yogurt by far! Friday, we went to the Santa Monica Pier and to Tito's Tacos for dinner. Saturday it was raining so we went to a mall then watched the Olympics. Oh and went to Pinkberry again. Couldn't get enough of it. Sunday, we went to church then headed home. We were snug in their apt. and Griff was going stir crazy so he was ready to leave. Thanks to the Todds for the wonderful hospitality. Can't wait to see you in April!!
