Sammy's for Clem's Birthday

Wednesday all the family that lives in San Diego headed to Sammy's (delicious) for Uncle Matt's birthday. It was fun to be able to celebrate with Matt and the food was so good. They have a shrimp salad that is unbelievable. The funniest part of the night was when they brought out the birthday sundae, G'ma wanted in on the action that she stood up and reached across the whole table in order to get a good bite. It was so great!

Last weekend

Last weekend was a great one for us. Friday night we attended my old high school's football game (TPHS vs. LCC). We went with my good friend from high school Melissa and her husband, Joey. Walking into the stadium brought back so many memories. It was great getting to see a few other friends as well and eat a California Quiver (fruit ice thingy, used to work there in high school).
Saturday we went surfing with some cousins and enjoyed some Roberto's while soaking up the sun. It was such a gorgeous day for November.
That evening we headed down to Peter's brother, Tommy's place for some BYU football and playing at the park with the nephews. Their boys are beyond darling, it's so fun to get a chance to hang out with them.

You know you're married to a medical student when....

your husband falls asleep at 6:30 on a Friday night. Awesome!

I was reading in my scriptures tonight and this passage jumped out at me, "there shall none come into this land save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord." It just reminded me how true it is that God has a plan for us and has a hand in our daily lives.

Our time in Hawaii has come to an end. We finished it off by celebrating Robbie's birthday, eating at the Little Village Noodle House (amazing Chinese food), boogie boarding on the North Shore, and SHAVED ICE. What will I do without being able to get shaved ice whenever I want?! It's going to be a hard transition back to normal life. I left Hawaii very rejuvenated and happy.
We are now back on the mainland in the beautiful city of San Diego. We will be here until the middle of December. Peter will be working at the hospital here learning about Pediatrics while I will be enjoying the scenery and spending time with family. We each have a set of grandparents here, plus some aunts and uncles, a cousin, and Peter's brother, Tommy and his family. We are really excited to be able to spend time with everyone.

So far traveling around this year has gone really well. We have mastered the art of microwavable food, living out of 1.5 suitcases each and shared laundry facilities. I love being able to take this journey with my husband and enjoy all the places along the way.

We are so proud of her and so excited to see what she'll do next.

You know you're married to a medical student when....

you go to wake up your husband and he asks you what your blood pressure is in his sleeping stupor. Good times!
