Match Day

March was a busy month for Mitch. He was inducted into the Gold Humanism Society at Baylor, which is an award for med students and staff who exemplify compassion in medicine. And that is definitely Mitch.

We celebrated Mitch's last day of 23 years of school! He was pretty happy and Rhett was pretty excited to see more of his dad.

Match day was the craziest day. The party started at 9 at Baylor and we couldn't open our letters till 11. Longest two hours of my life! Mitch and I were so nervous!

Baylor made it a really fun day for the families of the students and Mitch was even part of a flash dance mob! It was hilarious! Finally, the faculty gave their last speech, the minute count down was over, and all the students rushed to the bulletin board for their letters. Mitch pretended to be disappointed at first when he read the letter, but then announced we would be going to Utah!

Minds sent me matching bow ties for my boys for a real "match day."


and I made Cafe Rio, one of our favorite restaurants in Utah, to celebrate. 

Last, Mitch was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Society. I am so proud of how well he did in med school, even if he won't mention it to anyone to save his life.

Mother's Day 2014

The weekend before Mother's Day, Mitch took me out to the yummiest restaurant- Benjy's. So fancy and delicious!

We went to see the Sugarland Skeeters play, such a fun night!

Mother's Day flowers and crepes...

I wore my Grandma Lee's pin in honor of her and my mom. 

This is all I need for a happy mother's day!

Mitch went all out and made exactly what I wanted for dinner. Incredible!

And the celebration continued that week with quality pool time..

 I'm so grateful to be a mother!

Rodeo Houston final round

Sad to say that this was our last year for rodeo Houston. This was one of my favorite traditions while living in Houston. I LOVE rodeos and taking Rhett is always on my to do list..

First, Mitch and I went to Brad Paisley for our date night! 

Then we took Rhett to show him all the fun stuff! He loved all the animals, but especially loved the giant slide and carousel.

I will miss you Rodeo Houston!

Brazo's Bend

 I love this alligator park. It's just fun. It sounds crazy but it ended up being one of my favorite spots living in Texas. We went camping here a few times, this time with the Young Women.

It feels like a real southern swamp here.

The best group of YW. Some of them had never been camping before!
