How We Wore It | Unlikely Accessory

Here we are again on the last day of the month, finally getting these posts up. At least we are still showing up, right?! This month I left mine to the very last minute so I knew I needed to do something super simple and what's more simple than bobby pins? I've been pinning images like these recently so I knew this would be a really easy option which I needed.

Well, I only had time for a super quick trip to the store and found some simple lil beauties - they didn't have any pearl ones or I totally would have picked those and if I hadn't left procrastinated I would have had more time to find some pearl clips/pins. You bet your bottom dollar I'll be keeping an eye out for some moving forward. 

I've also seen some fun things with plain bobby pins, too! Who woulda thunk you could have so much fun with a clip and/or pin to spruce up an outfit? 

Be sure to check out my cute friend's unnecessary accessories that they featured this month!

We're Moving!

Well, Match Day came and went and did not go anything like we thought it would. I look back at my second to last blog post and just have to laugh a bit because it's like God and my subconscious knew that I would need my own words to get me through the news we received.

Surprise! We are moving to Boston in June! Parker will be starting his residency at Brigham and Women's this summer and honestly, we are still a bit shocked by this outcome, along with a whole lot of other emotions - nervous, excited, still a bit confused, but I'm mostly so proud of Parker and all of his hard work.

This move will be quite an adjustment for both of us. Parker will be receiving amazing training but will be super busy at this program, we'll be living in the city for the first time and on the east coast, and I'll have to find a new job. While the Match didn't go as we had expected, we both know that God has a very specific plan for us and that Boston is a part of that plan.

We'll be leaving Ohio in a few weeks to do some major traveling before we head to Massachusetts and we are SO excited for some down time to spend time with family and friends, and to see some new (and familiar) parts of the world!

We'll be going to:

+Utah for our newest nephew's baby blessing
+Las Vegas for spring break
+Southern Utah national parks hiking tour
+ Cruising from Fort Lauderdale to Aruba, Curacao, Bonaire, Antigua, St. Thomas, and ending in NYC
+Back to Ohio for medical school graduation
+Costa Rica with some friends from college
+Bald Head Island, NC
+Move to Boston!

It's about to be a crazy and fun few months and we are ready for it! BRING ON THE SUNSHINE!
