Keely tagged me a while ago to answer her 8 questions and tag 8 other bloggers to answer 8 questions of my own.  (Take your time.  Life is busy!  Do the tag on one of those days where you can't think of anything to blog about. :)

Here are my answers to Keely's questions:

1)  Which 90s sitcom are you more attached to (if either), Saved By the Bell or Full House?

Oh man, I watched every episode of both!  I was mainly attached to Full House because I totally had a crush on Uncle Jesse.  Of course I had a crush on Zack Morris too!  Hmmmm.....if I had to choose I'd say.....Saved By the Bell.  Mostly because I can still watch re-runs of it and enjoy it--it was actually quite clever many times.  But now when I watch Full House it's like 1) I have every episode memorized and 2) when the "learning a lesson" talk comes and that corny music plays, I cringe inside.  But still, both great shows!
2)  Which television couple is your all-time fav?  Why?

I'd have to say.....Ross and Rachel from "Friends."  I loooooove Friends, and I think their history together and how he's loved her since high school and she finally realizes they're soul mates after some ups and downs is so endearing and genuine.  Since I'm a Friends nerd and have watched all the behind the scenes talks from the creators, they said that the original idea was a main love story between Joey and Monica, but that after a few episodes they realized the real chemistry was with Ross and Rachel.  So true.
3)  What was your favorite childhood toy?
Remember these?  These were SO cool!  They were called "Flying Turtles" and I would play with this for hours on the sidewalk in our backyard.  Only I would ride on them the "cool" way....not the safe way as pictured, but with one knee where you're supposed to sit and the other leg pushing from behind like a skateboard.  I was so rad.

4)  Why did you start a blog?

I needed a place to write and cope with the changes of starting med school and get connected with lots of other med wives.  I also aim to have this blog be sort of a journal of our journey through med school, what we've learned so far that can possibly help those on the road to med school understand what it's like, and update friends and family on our lives which now revolve around med school.

5)  How long did you know your husband before you got married?

About 1 year.

6)  What is something you always splurge on? (example: shoes)

 My hair.  I love getting highlights, but it's so expensive!  I rationalize by telling myself that I really don't buy a lot of clothes, shoes, purses, makeup, or accessories (hey, I'm a simple girl), but I do love getting my hair done!

7)  What is something you like to save on/bargain hunt for? (example: textbooks)

I especially like to save on diapers.  That's one of the things I totally break out my phone calculator and calculate the cost per diaper to find the cheapest deal. 

8)  What is your guy's favorite thing that you cook?

My husband is waaaay better at cooking than I am......so I'll say he probably likes my brownies and pancakes.  Impressed??

It was nice to read some personal things about you. And yes I consider mascara to be life-changing!!

Thanks for answering!!! (and yes, the touching lesson moments on Full House make me cringe...almost as much as the idea of Joey and Monica!!) If you're ever in New York we should have a "watch friends and complain about medical school" party...haha!

Yay! Thanks for tagging me!

I love your answer about the sitcom - I feel the exact same way, right down to the cringing.

Thanks for tagging me! I just saw this and wished I had earlier because I did a quiz-y type thing earlier. BUT, I'm going to double post because I want to answer your questions!

AND, I LOVE Friends. Best Christmas present I ever got was the box set of all 10 seasons, of which I have watched every single episode at least 4 times. No lie.

Hi! Omigod your baby is such cuteness!! Frameable pic. I loved your answers to Keely's tag. Especially the one about your childhood toy - I do remember those, and they were such fun (see what fun we had when people didn't care much about safety hazards??!!) Thanks for tagging me!
