WADT and a Certain Second Lieutenant

Alternatively Titled:  I'm embarrassed to admit how long it took me to figure out how to spell Lieutenant.

Happy WADT!  I feel like such a dork for saying this, but I am relieved that the dress code at the hospital allows me to continue WADT throughout the summer.  I was actually worried I was going to need to be in dress pants all the time and have to take a hiatus!

I dragged Bruce out of bed this morning to take this picture before I left for the hospital!  Poor guy - I made him take six pictures before I got one that I liked.  Ignore my puffy eyes - we are under an orange air quality alert in Atlanta right now.  My allergies are off the chains.

Even though I've had to work, these past two days have been fun because Gib was in town! (You may remember Gib - he was the one who starred in the Valentine's Day video where he and Bruce set our dessert on fire) Gib graduated from West Point last month and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army.  He has been traveling on his month off before he has to report and his travels brought him to Atlanta!  I love it when friends come to visit!

He let me try on his patrol hat and it was a tad too big for me.  I think it's a look that works for me, though.

My favorite part of this picture is that Gib's just ignoring me.  Apparently he's taking lessons from Bruce.

Just kidding.

Sort of.

Oh - in case you are wondering (not that you would, but I feel the need to over explain myself all the time), I wore two dresses for WADT today. The first was the skirt/jacket that Bruce took a picture of this morning and the second was this yellow maxi dress. I always change as soon as I get home because Bruce says I smell "like hospital" but it was still early in the day and I wanted to have a dress on!

After I returned the hat, I told Bruce and Gib that I wanted them to pose for a nice picture.  I'll let you gauge for yourself how well that worked ...

Gib ruined that one.

The look on Bruce's face says, "Okay, this is going to be fun.  Let's NOT give her a nice picture."

So close.  Bruce ruined it this time.

And again.

I like how Gib has this innocent, "I don't know why Bruce is laughing" look on his face.  HE'S NOT AS INNOCENT AS HE LOOKS.

50% participation at all times.  Never 100%.

So close.

Well - at least they got a kick out of themselves.

Gib's training is taking him to the middle part of Virginia and south Georgia so we are extremely excited that he is going to be closer for a few months!  A 16 hour drive was just too far for the weekend ... 

I hope you all had a wonderful WADT!  Send me your pictures!
