Interviews, Finals, and CHRISTMAS

Okay fun fact. I actually did this blog during finals week before Christmas, but for some reason just saved it and didn't publish it, so I am now. At some point I'll do a new blog post that actually includes the break.

So as many of you know I am in the process of applying to medical school. The schools are so kind and let you come out and visit for an interview. They are even nice enough to let you pay for it all. Seriously though I guess I am glad I have gotten interviews even if they are a money pit. Here are some of trips so far.

This is Washington University in St. Louis. Don't get confused, its not in Washington D.C. or in Washington state.

Next was Johns Hopkins, and the campus and you can see is beautiful.
Then there was University of Colorado. I loved this interview because my mom, Eliza, and Matt all drove out with me so it wasn't so lonely like the first few ones. Apparently I didn't take any pictures of the medical school, but I did of the zoo. Another highlight.

Then there was Baylor. Luckily Matt came with me again, which was so fun. He did some of his own interviews while we were there and we really liked it. I also recently interviewed with Duke, but luckily they do skype interviews so I didn't have to fly out there.

So far those are all the interviews I have been to, and I'm still waiting to hear back. No yea or nay yet.

To my next topic... finals. Really all I have to say is that they are over and we both survived. Matt survived extremely well considering he was basically done with finals by noon on Monday.

To the best topic of all, CHRISTMAS!
I can't even explain how much I love Christmas and how many traditions I have. I tried to make our little apartment look Christmasy even though they orange walls aren't exactly a Christmas color.

We even got a real tree. This made me so happy

I have been counting down the days to Christmas.
Matt thinks I get even more excited than little kids, and he is probably right. I would wager on it.

Yep... This is our life

We went on a rafting trip with Matt's family in Jackson. I've been turned into a rafter. I was nervous at first, but now I've realized it is fun.

This is a beautiful lake by Jackson that we hiked to. Unfortunately that water was much to cold for my liking. Matt some how does not have a temperature sensor. He thought it felt great. I feel like there is some evolution mechanism to explain this.

Right before school started we went to LAGOON. In case you were wondering the answer is no, I didn't take a shower in my clothes I just went on Rattle Snake Rapids, which now soaks everyone that goes on it. There is no longer a guess of who is going to get wet. Every one will.

First Day of School Pictures. So what... I like pretending like I'm five.

This is our cute apartment. Matt picked the colors of our wall. We went a little crazy, but it is fun.

We went to homecoming. We can still date even though we are married. Its kind of barfy though right? p.s. I may have borrowed my little sister's homecoming dress. Classy.

I don't know if you can tell, but those are wedding cake toppers... or they are supposed to be.
Its a bird... Its a plane... No its just Matt jumping off my front porch to see if his cape would flow.

Batman and Catwoman. HAWT.

We played the flour game. I had to find something to do with it considering I don't bake.

So pretty much we are just pretending to be grown ups. Every once in a while our act is totally see through. Its okay though we have a very fun life. Whenever is Matt is stressed about something or whatever I just glare at him until he says "My life is so good". I would like to second that statement. Our life is pretty dang awesome.

Life After.... Marriage

So my only problem with blogging is (and why I hardly ever post) is that I always want to blog at work, but I don't like creating a post with out pictures and I don't have my pictures with me at work. Now you see my predicament, however, I am now at work and want to blog, so I am going to utilize my pictures from facebook to tell a little bit about our life. I am sorry I don't have the most recent pictures- I never upload pictures to facebook either. Deal with it.

1. I love Matt, and this is partly due to the fact that he is shameless. This is him sleeping on the airport floor. Completely sprawled out and after a little bit he asked if he could us my feet as pillows. I love this fact about him being shameless because it is hilarious, and it is so great.

2. We pretty much eat a lot of dessert. It is like we suddenly feel like we have no parents and we can eat whatever we want and all we want is CANDY. Seriously though I don't know why, but when we go shopping we mostly discuss what desserts we could have for the upcoming week. To compound this problem turns out we both hate exercising, so I see a problem coming.

3. Matt gets me to do crazy things.

Okay this is us parasailing, and I actually really wanted to do this. He didn't really trick me into it because I wanted to.
Also he got me into drinking- okay that was a lie. In Cancun they just took our picture and then wanted us to buy this from them. Yeah that is us on some tequilla, but I laughed, took a picture, and handed it back. I'm still sober.

I also get Matt to do things that he probably doesn't want to do.

For example go to prom reloaded and take pictures in front of a unicorn. Isn't that every guy's dream?

4. What I meant by the previous point of us doing crazy things is that we have a lot of fun.

This is our cousin's kickball team. Yeah we were pretty dang good as you can tell by the jersey's. Undefeated in season, unfortunately we didn't quite win a shirt, but we definitely had more fun than anyone else.

In conclusion, (that is what my high school teachers told me to put at the beginning of my last paragraph) life after marriage is pretty dang great. Someday I'll actually update you on current things.

K + M Wedding

Mr. and Mrs. Phillips

I know most people who will see this were already there, but oh well. I decided to share my wedding through photo. Lets admit it, it is way easier than reading.

Coming out of the temple

The Girls

Got to do a jumping picture- Not bad for being dressed up

Entrance with a side of uncle Brad

Darling Jr. Bridesmaids

Type-writers to leave us a message. We had two more

The guest book. To put type writer messages in

The pathway up to the real reception area

Just some help. In case you got lost

The kids area- yes that is a castle

The reception

Wedding party



Elegantly downing some food before the reception started.

What the kids did the whole time

This is my little cousin. She kept telling me before the reception how she wanted the bouquet. In order to get it she elbowed my friend Jolene in the gut and took it. I think everyone was too stunned to say anything.

First Dance

My parents know how to party

We are learning
We made a aisle for people to dance down during the song "Forever"

This is my cousin Henry. Before I could get in the car to leave he yelled "Wait". He then brought me a crepe he had made, but said "You are going to have to share". Thanks Hank.

And we leave.
