Old Friends

It was really nice to see my good friend Brandi!

I also went to dinner with Elana, Llani and family, which is has been a wonderful tradition whenever we are all in the same place around the holidays (which really has been pretty hit or miss the last few years).

More Cheyenne time.....

Us girls.....Claire, Tamara, Me, Cheyenne, and Nuk (from left to right).

Merry Christmas~ Anica's trip home

I had a wonderful time at home with my family and friends. I realized that I have not been back on baker road since March (Tamara's baby shower), so it has been a while. I have not seen some of my friends from home (namely Brandi, Llani and Elana) for a while, so it was a good time. Lots of great food, drinks, visiting, and baby time. I also went with Llani and Elana to a Dar Williams concert (happy birthday Llani), which was great! I hope that this post finds everyone happy and well. I am also looking forward to visiting the Chicago family and seeing Aaron over New Years....stay tuned for more pics! Here is one of the tree and one of my adorable niece Cheyenne.

Interns Celebrate!!

I am officially done with 1/3 of my internship (you will get there soon hun)!! This means that I will start a new rotation on Monday and also means that our intern class had a number of reasons to celebrate last night. We went out to dinner and Karaoke and had a blast. There may have been some shots taken (Shalini, Becky, Tristan, me, and Niki in the first pic). We went to a place called double-wide for dinner - decorated appropriately with hubcaps on the ceiling - and they had seitan buffalo wings and lots of other veggie option - it was amazing!

Chicago Family Stylists

We had lots of fun playing with the kids (Aaron has 5 cousins between the ages of 4-10 in Chicago). Aaron served as a jungle gym and was handsomely rewarded with hair and beard styling services by Ceci and Sarah.....

Preparing for the holidays with the Chicago family

Aaron and I met up in Chicago last weekend and stayed with his cousins Lesa and Tina and their families (thanks so much for having us)! We had a great time working in the sweatshop, er, I mean assembly line, of candy-making! :-)

Happy Belated Thanksgiving

I apologize for such a long abscence from posts. I have been busy with work, Jazzercise, and missing Aaron! Plus, I have not been up to much that would be exciting to post about....until this past weekend.

Aaron and I met up at his mom's house near Ann Arbor. We had a WONDERFUL weekend visiting with family and friends and enjoying great food and company. We had Thanksgiving day dinner with Aaron's mom, brother, aunt and uncle. We drove up to Mount Pleasant on Friday and visited with are large and small (and furry) friends up there. Saturday we spent hanging out in Ann Arbor and Sunday we went our separate ways (sadly). Thanks to everyone who hosted and fed us, we had a great time!! And happy Thanksgiving everyone - I have lots to be thankful for, and I appreciate it all (even if it doesn't seem like it all the time).

Here are some pics from the weekend.
