Cost of 2 new suits = $600.00

Cost to interview at 16 programs = $5,012.98

Getting the email that says "Congratulations you matched!" = PRICELESS!

Praise God for the good news! We went out to lunch to celebrate! My stomach is in knots and I'm not sure if its from the greasy lunch or from worrying all morning! Thank you all for the encouraging comments this morning! Now we just have to wait until Thursday to find out where! I'm still in a little bit of shock!

I am dying to hear where you guys matched! Did you get to go to Match Day? Did your husband's school do anything special for the day?

I hope you are both feeling excited and super relieved!
