Everyone is always telling Jordan how lucky he is to be married to a doctor. What they don’t realize is that he’d be a whole lot luckier if he married me now rather than putting up with me through medical school! Medical school was rough and I assure you it was not easy to live with me. Jordan deserves some kind of prize =). For example, it was a couple weeks before I took Step 1. I had been studying all day so we decided to drive through somewhere. Kentucky Fried Chicken had just introduced their grilled chicken and so we decided to give it a try. We got there and they were out of grilled chicken. I was way more upset about this than anyone should have been and almost started crying…for real. I can be a bit dramatic ;). Rather than go somewhere else, I decided I’d just get some fried chicken and some mashed potatoes – without gravy. We got home, sat down at the table, opened up our food and then I realized they had put gravy *gasp* on my mashed potatoes. I immediately started bawling, “they put gravy on my mashed potatoes“… Obviously I wasn’t really crying over the gravy on my potatoes. I was stressed to the max. This is hilarious now but in the moment I failed to see any humor. So, now that I have a little time off between graduation and the start of residency, I’ve been trying to be super nice to Jordan – like making him cookies in the middle of the day and taking them to him at work nice =). These cookies were pretty amazing too – loaded with biscoff, white chocolate, and dried blueberries…yum! Enjoy!
