Dr. Anderson

by Meghann on May 15, 2011

Oh, Snap!

IMG_5523.JPG

My twin brother is a DOCTOR!!!!

There’s no denying it now, Josh IS the smart twin, and – you know what? – I couldn’t be prouder.

IMG_5541.jpg

My brother is a doctor!

My brother is a doctor!

MY BROTHER IS A DOCTOR!!!!!

WOO HOO!!!!! πŸ™‚

Yesterday was a crazy day full of celebrations and family. πŸ™‚

Josh and his girlfriend, Adena, made reservations for our GIANT group of 36+ people at Big Pink In South Beach for an early lunch yesterday.

IMG_5258.JPG

The 36+ was a combination of our family, Adena’s family, their friends, and their friend’s family. Basically, it was a madhouse.

IMG_5261.JPG

Somehow, they managed to squeeze us all on one long table. I have to say, I was impressed it all worked.

IMG_5262.jpg

I had never even heard of Big Pink before we pulled up, but the minute I walked in, it was love. I loved the atmosphere, I loved the menu, and I loved the customer service (even with our large party we were in and out in an hour!).

Big Pink reminded me of a place that could be featured on Diners, Dive-ins, and Drives ( I haven’t checked, maybe it has been?). Everything about it rocked!

Derek loved that they had big tvs with baseball playing on them.

IMG_5268.JPG IMG_5269.JPG

There we go.

IMG_5270.JPG

Great restaurant pick Josh and Adena!

IMG_5264.JPG

Big Pink’s menu was HUGE. It had a lot of greasy diner staples, as well as some fun twists on traditional classics. I was told upon opening the menu that I NEEDED to request the sweet potato fries as a side item (not much convincing needed there πŸ˜‰ ) and that everything was pretty incredible, so there was no way I could go wrong.

I’m not sure why, but I was really craving a burger. Usually I stay away from veggie burgers at restaurants (I’ve been disappointed one too many times before), but the description of ‘tofu blended with lentils, bulgar, and fresh vegetable’ made me think Big Pink’s Veggie Burger was different.

I went for it.

IMG_5276.JPG

Wow. Wow. and Wow.

Seriously, the BEST Veggie Burger I’ve had in my life. Can you see those chunks of veggies? It was fresh, homemade, and had me ‘mmmmming’ after each and every bite.

IMG_5279.JPG

The burger was big, really big, and normally I would have stopped at half, but it was so good, I found myself nearly polishing off the whole thing.

If you go to Big Pink I can not recommend the veggie burger enough. Everyone else’s food looked incredible too, but I swear they just didn’t compare to mine. πŸ™‚

IMG_5281.JPG

The sweet potatoes weren’t bad either. πŸ˜‰ They were crispy on the outside and slightly mushy on the inside – fry pefection in my opinion. Of course, my energy was geared towards the burger, so I only consumed about 1/4 of them. πŸ™‚

IMG_5277.JPG

After stuffing ourselves silly, we waddled down the street to enjoy a cocktail or two at the cutest little boutique hotel on the beach.

IMG_5298.JPG

IMG_5290.JPG

The atmosphere screamed Mimosa to me. πŸ™‚

IMG_5285.JPG

Derek and I took our drinks outside.

IMG_5300.JPG

All that was missing was a bikini and a good book. πŸ™‚

IMG_5302.JPG

We killed time doing a little window shopping and exploring before heading to the University of Miami Campus for the main event.

IMG_5307.JPG

IMG_5311.JPG

IMG_5319.JPG

Look! It’s Josh!

IMG_5314.JPG

The best part of the commencement book was checking out everyone’s credentials and seeing where they’re all heading next year (they’ll literally be all over the country).

Some had a little more bulk that others. πŸ˜‰  

IMG_5316.JPG

Adena is a Rock Star. Obviously. πŸ˜‰

Let the commencement begin!

IMG_5328.JPG

That’s my brother!

IMG_5329.JPG

IMG_5336.JPG

Hi Josh! Hi Josh!

IMG_5342.JPG

IMG_5356.JPG

And here come’s my brother’s Rock Star girlfriend.

IMG_5363.JPG

IMG_5383.JPG

I think Adena spotted us!

IMG_5388.JPG

The entire commencement ceremony was very emotional for me.

IMG_5396.JPG

It was always a given Josh was going to be a doctor. He was smart, he was quiet, and he was going places. No one questioned it when he studied bio-chemistry at UF or took the MCAT his senior year. When Josh applied for medical schools senior year – and was denied a couple of places before being wait listed at UM – there were no tears; only confidence that he would get in somewhere and succeed.

IMG_5398.JPG

And he did.

Josh busted his butt in Miami. He studied for – not hours – but DAYS at a time. He worked on cadavers, he pushed himself through every rotation, he sat out of vacations, he volunteered, he passed his boards, he learned how to save lives, he grew up, and now – he’s proof that hard work and perseverance pay off.

IMG_5402.JPG

All you need is a goal and the drive to get there.

IMG_5408.JPG

It was always assumed Josh would be a doctor…

IMG_5414.JPG IMG_5415.JPG IMG_5416.JPG IMG_5417.JPG   

But, he was the one that made it happen.

Congrats Josh! πŸ™‚

IMG_5424.JPG

I’m equally proud of Adena.

IMG_5433.JPG

Adena picked a field so highly competitive that the residency she will be entering into this summer is a program of only one person <-her!

IMG_5438.JPG

Congrats to all of the Class of 2011!!

IMG_5450.JPG

You’re all doctors now! Time to celebrate!

IMG_5490.JPG IMG_5491.JPG

IMG_5511.JPG

IMG_5515.JPG

IMG_5550.JPG

The Miller School of Medicine set up a reception next door for all the new doctors to celebrate together with their families.

IMG_5581.JPG

IMG_5584.JPG

The food spread was pretty amazing. They had a few tables set up with a little something of everything.

IMG_5552.JPG IMG_5553.JPG

Plate #1 from the veggie and cheese table.

IMG_5556.JPG

IMG_5594.JPG

Plate #2 from the Asian Table.

IMG_5572.JPG

Plate #3 from the dessert table (I just had a bite of each)

IMG_5578.JPG

Plate #4 Cake!

IMG_5645.JPG

IMG_5632.JPG

After the reception we headed to South Beach for some ice cream.

IMG_5650.JPG

IMG_5651.JPG

I shared some Mint Chocolate Chip with Derek.

IMG_5653.JPG

IMG_5661.JPG

Then we went to a German restaurant for beers and pretzels.

IMG_5663.JPG

IMG_5667.JPG

IMG_5666.JPG

I was DD, so I abstained from the beer, but I did have some of the amazing pretzel! Yum!

IMG_5671.JPG

IMG_5678.JPG

We ended the night at a karaoke bar on South Beach.

IMG_5681.JPG

It was just Josh, Ben, Kelly, Derek, and me at this point, but it was probably the most fun I’ve had in a long time (even as DD). My siblings are my best friends, there’s no questioning that, and any minute I spend with them is a minute worth savoring. Last night felt like a last hoorah before we’re all separated again. They drank, we danced, we sang, and we just had FUN.

Heck, the guys even got on stage for a round of ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia’ and ‘ Great Balls of Fire’

IMG_5684.JPG

And, even though Kelly was resisting, I managed to pull her up for ‘Any Man of Mine’ (which we ROCKED).

IMG_5697.JPG

Don’t ask me how the only sober one went up stage for a solo, but I did a pretty mean round of ‘Total Eclipse of My Heart’ πŸ˜‰

IMG_5703.jpg

We managed to stay out until 3:00am at that Karaoke Bar. I can’t tell you the last time I stayed out that late – it just proves how much fun we were having.

IMG_5701.JPG

Seriously. Best. Siblings. Ever.

I’m proud of each and everyone of them.

One a doctor.

One graduating with her masters this summer.

Another working hard to take over the family business.

And the last (me) writing this blog.

I don’t know what my parents did, but they raised us right.

Thanks Mom and Dad. This weekend was dedicated to you. πŸ™‚

Wow, a HUGE congrats to your brother and Adena, what a major accomplishment. I had no idea Adena also has her PhD, she must be a total genius. And your brother majored in chemistry??? Dang, he must be one smart cookie. I hope to be just like them one day:)

I went home a few weeks ago (I’m from Miami), & I literally went to almost every single place you guys visited this weekend, too funny! Looks like you had an awesome time!

Rats! I’m mad b/c in scrolling through the comments I saw that someone left “my” comment already but I’ll say it again: your brother looks like a doctor!! He just does – without pretense or arrogance, just by virtue of his demeanor, he looks like he will make a seamless transition to “Dr. Anderson.”

And Adena?? WOW!! She is a badass – I love it!

Good luck to both of them in their future endeavours. I hope they both get a chance to squeeze in a little fun!

haha πŸ™‚ They both have less than a month until they report to their residencies, but will be squeezing in some fun time in Argentina over the next two weeks. They actually leave for their adventure tomorrow!

I’m finishing my second year of med school and have been thinking about this post all day. It’s such a nice tribute to your brother. Sometimes we students feel like people (even our loving, supportive families) don’t really “get” how hard we are working. I love your line about Josh being the one that made this happen. It proves that you, and our families, do understand, and I’m sure Josh appreciates your pride in him. Congratulations!

This had me reminiscing about when my husband (then fiance) graduated from medical school. I was so proud of him. As your brother probably knows by now, getting that MD is just the START of all of the hard work of residency/fellowships/etc, but it’s certainly a big start. Belated congratulations to him and Adena! A dermatology residency at UChicago! That’s huge!
