Lemons for Spring

Its late in the week for a weekend recap, I know!  This new lab is busy busy and I have been working a lot of hours so far this week!  So here it goes anyways...

Last weekend Husband and I had plans with his new friends at school.  These new friends are very out of character for Husband as is evident by our plans with them... 

Friday night we met at one of the lady's houses and had a few snacks, watched a little March Madness, and played some Rock Band.  Sounds ordinary, right?  Until you take into account the amount of time these people spend studying together, making them very comfortable around each other, the amount of alcohol they had consumed {Husband and I don't drink, but we can still have fun}, and most importantly...the entire group was a bunch of nerdy medical students and spouses.  Yes I will admit that Husband and I are nerds!  We study, love science and medicine, and think jokes on those topics are hilarious!

Review of the night - It is amazing and humbling to see medical students slightly intoxicated.  For starters they are hilarious and making jokes about their current lack of ALDH enzyme {biochemistry = alcohol digestion}.  But then they get serious and start talking about why they want to be a doctor and help people, without their usual inhibitions.  Doctors really do care about their patients.  

For our little get together I brought lemon cupcakes because everyone likes cupcakes!

For lemon cupcake {from I Heart CuppyCakes with a few changes by me}
1/2 cup {1 stick} unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1-1/2 cups AP flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 lemon zested
1 lemons worth of juice

Saturday night - We went to the med school's Night at the Arts {aka med school talent show}!  This is very out of character for Husband.  He usually hates going to things like this, but it was his idea!  So why the change?  His new friends were all in the show.  There was a fashion show {kind of}, Indian dancers, rocking bands, and classical groups along with some pieces of art.  Everything is done by the students and did a very good job!  The violinist and cellist were amazing!  

The rest of the weekend we were boring and loved it!  I hope you all had a great weekend and are having a fantastic week!  And just because I think you deserve it, here's a pretty picture...
