Garrett and I have a little more news...

Garrett and I are expecting!

We're really excited — obviously. I've been ready for this for a while, and the timing is really perfect.

It's due some time at the end of April, maybe the beginning of May. You're supposed to keep track of a lot of things when you're trying... I didn't. Oh well, we'll have a little element of surprise.

I'm 13 weeks along tomorrow, so we're excited to share the news. We're looking forward to meeting baby McCoy one day!

He did it!!!!!!!!!

We could be living here for the next million years!
Pardon my excessive use of exclamation points in the title, I couldn't resist. Garrett and I have super good news. Ready?


Garrett got into not one, but TWO schools today!

The first call of the day was from A.T. Still University, School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona. He was excited about this one — it meant that no matter what, he was going to medical school somewhere. It is comforting to know you don't have to wait another year.

But then came the big call — the one Garrett and I have been anxiously awaiting since he interviewed there. He got accepted into the Medical College of Wisconsin!

Now, it's not that we've pictured ourselves living in Wisconsin or anything, but when Garrett went to the interview he said he loved everything about the school. Getting that call was a serious answer to prayers.

Our minds aren't completely made up as of now, we still hope to get into more schools, but it would have to be a pretty impressive school to deter Garrett from Wisconsin.

Can I just say how proud I am of that guy! He's worked so hard and it has truly paid off. Tell him congrats if you see him ever.

The tally we've been waiting for:

Primaries: 32
Secondaries: 29 received, 20 sent
Interviews: 6
Acceptances: 2

Isn't he handsome :D

Finding a football team

Well, I'm a little behind in updating Garrett's journey to medical school — I think it's because I'm really anxious to hear if we get in anywhere come Monday. It's been a long wait (I know, you probably feel like it's come up so quickly), but I'm ready for the news — good or bad.

Well, for good news right now, Garrett got an interview invite to Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine. That's right — Garrett got an interview somewhere with a football team!

Though I hope that won't be the reason he chooses to go to the school, I know it definitely won't hurt them.

As I've said a million times before, I'm really proud of Garrett and how well he's done. I'm just grateful that all his hard work is starting to pay off. Come Monday, it might really pay off!

The man of the hour is currently in Washington at an interview, so he's been busy. If we hear good news come Monday we'll be able to be a bit pickier when it comes to buying tickets, hotel rooms and rental cars for interviews.

Cross your fingers for us!
