embrace the camera

Like I mentioned, Chris is graduating from med school this weekend.  On Monday we attended a dinner that was hosted by the alumni association, so we had to get all fancied up.  Of course I didn't realize how dressy it was supposed to be until the day before, and of course I had NOTHING to wear (that seemed appropriate for the occasion anyway).  I actually grabbed this dress out of the garage sale box.

The last time I wore this dress was for my sorority formal my junior year of college.  I'm not in love with it, but it did fit, which was pretty exciting.  Ry didn't join us for dinner, but I had my dad snap a picture before we left.

Chris and I had our own little photo session in the car.  I love these pictures.  It reminds me of the two of us, just us, being goofy and immature.  I love it.

You look AWESOME!! Those pics make me nostalgic too... I do sometimes miss hanging out just the two of us without needing to "watch the clock" and get back to relieve a babysitter.

before you ever said anything about the dress, my first thought was LOVE THE DRESS! you look great! & ohhhhh I miss the med school days! Had no idea you guys were in the same boat. You ready for residency? What specialty? Will you be moving?
