Some rather fantastic news...

If you've been reading my blog the past few months, you may recall me mentioning the stress that is the Clinical Competency Exam. I have been working on this particular case since the beginning of January, and yesterday I had my oral defense...and I PASSED!!!

I am so relieved because this means I have passed my diagnostic training and can now move on to clinical training in therapy. And more importantly, it means I have somewhat of a life again! I woke up sick today (probably due to the thick layer of pollen that is coating the city), but I am so thankful I got sick today rather than yesterday.

To celebrate my accomplishment, I bought 3 dresses at Banana Republic, a skirt at JCrew, a compact purple leather Bible to carry in my purse, and The Expositor's Bible Commentary (Old Testament volume). Hubby is working in Los Angeles this week, but we will definitely be celebrating when he gets home!

The CCE process is very formal, and the presenting student is expected to bring refreshments for the professors and other students that attend the defense. I provided a spread of homemade finger foods, including these delicious Coconut Cream-Filled Macaroons:
