Year in Review: April, May, and June

I am linking up again today to share the next three months of 2014. Chris was in the thick of his third year of medical school (the hardest year) so it was a lot of long hours and sleepless nights. Here are the fun things we did in April, May, and June:

During the hubby’s Spring Break, we went to Vegas! Vegas is our choice for a fun, quick vacation. We get a lot of flack for it from friends and family, but there is so much more to do than just to drink and gamble. During our April trip, we went to Le Reve, ate at our favorite Vegas restaurants (post on Vegas restaurants coming soon!), and watched the Bellagio fountains out of our hotel room every night. We also visited the Valley of Fire State Park, which was so beautiful. It was a nice, relaxing trip before Chris started 12 weeks of internal medicine. After those 12 weeks, I am so glad Chris isn’t going into internal medicine (and I am not looking forward to the year he has to do of internal medicine).
May is a month of birthdays for us—Both of my hubby’s parents and my mom. We really enjoyed celebrating with our families.

My younger brother graduated from high school! He has grown into such a great young man, and I am so proud of him. I can’t wait to see what he will accomplish in the future. At the end of June, Chris finished his third year of medical school, and we rejoiced! He started fourth year the next day, but it really felt like there was now a light at the end of the tunnel.


  1. I still can't believe another year is almost done! Love seeing these posts and as usual you look fabulous!

  2. Love the picture of your family - so cute!!! I went to Vegas for the first time last year and can't wait to go back!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  3. That's so awesome you go to Vegas so often. I love visiting and like you said it's more than booze and bars. We enjoy the high end food and I want to start trying to find parks to hike.

  4. Those Fire State Park photos are amazing! I am so adding it to my vacation bucket list.

    1. Rachel, it is such a beautiful place to visit, and there a re lots of great hikes. I need to do a post on it to share all my photos. I definitely want to go back someday. :)

  5. I LOVE Vegas. I have been 3 times (we went on our Honeymoon, my husband's first time) and a lot of people gave us flack as well. I have never gambled there, I mean anymore than putting $5 in a pokie machine! There is so much more to do! We were also in bed by 11pm each night haha, that was late for us!

  6. Ah! the light at the end of the tunnel is a GREAT feeling!

  7. Sounds like your entire year so far has been filled with wonderful things! How fun that you got to go to Vegas -- I have never been but wouldn't mind going one day.

  8. I love reviews of the year- it is so fun to look back on everything! I'll have to try La Reve, that sounds great!
