but it was still pretty sweet.
and we wouldn't be where we are today without that mah-jor event
(as Rachel Zoe would say)
|thanks for the parking garage photo, mom.|
when you give your mother your camera
(which, incidentally, she has no idea how to use)
she will take approximately one million photos
(and you will be able to use 0.01% of them)
love you, mom.
|quickie iPhone pic while waiting to line up. The Doctors Fleming, everyone.|
|nick wasn't ready.|
|he's all smirky and "i'm a doctor, check me out"|
|YES. there were bagpipes.|
|it's offish. and yes, my first name is mary.|
|me and Murray, my papa-in-law.|
|father and son.|
Nick totally looks like a more Italian version of his dad.
since his mom is Italian, and threw that extra dash of italiano in there
|after the deed was done.|
|nick didn't get the "look this way" memo.|
we had both of our families represented
it was just the right amount.
i can't even imagine how psychotic the day would've been
if my entire gaggle of bros and sis's had showed
(p.s. my mom, looking fab in her mustard sweater. who picked that one out, mom? (; )
|15 takes. this is the only one where we're all looking the same direction.|
my med school support group
Jen and Julie got me through 4th year
Jen's in my class
and is now a Family Medicine resident in Chicago
Julie is a (lucky) PA and graduated last year
now she's making the big bucks in Gyn-Onc
(you've seen her before..and Julie, and Quick)
and Quick (that's her last name. and what we call her. real name is Melissa.)
Quick was gone almost all year
doing away rotations in DC and NYC
and now she's a Family Medicine resident in NYC
(who was on call the night that NYU shut down their biggest hospital in fear of Hurricane Irene so she got all their patients. come on, Irene.)
|couldn't all look at the camera. too tough for us doctors.|
|me and Foster. sweetie that he is.|
|Foster and the Flemings|
Foster is Nick's med school bestie
and possibly one of the smartest peeps i know
he's an ENT surgery resident in Detroit
we're buying him a gun for Christmas
she just got engaged.
but she wasn't in this pic.
she was in town for a wedding and got to come watch me walk
p.s. how HUGE is my gown?
four years of med school.
walking by that damn pony every day
always wanted to hop on and ride it
but was too chicken.
decided graduation day was my day.
they can't squeeze any more tuition or fees outta me.
|nick and my pretty mama|
|and they lived happily ever after...|
so there ya have it.
too legit to quit.
