A Blissful Weekend

Happy Monday friends!  It’s extra happy since I am on break :)  I had the most amazing weekend with my sweet family and I am excited to share it with you guys.  It is unbelievable how relaxing it was not having tests looming on the horizon – just time to soak up precious moments with the girls.


Chris had to work overnight on Friday so as soon as he got home Saturday morning we packed up and headed to our weekly breakfast date.  Emmie wakes up every Saturday saying she wants to go to breakfast for “two pancakes” and it’s quickly becoming one of our favorite family traditions.  When we got home Emmie and I headed out for her first hair cut in over a year.  Can we just pause for a second and look at how grown up she looks?!


Hair cut


Not only did she do amazing at the hair dresser but we had a decent breakthrough in potty training so that meant ice cream was in order after nap time :)


Ice Cream


We wrapped up Saturday with grilling steaks, sipping on some wine, and sadly seeing our beloved Wildcats lose in the Elite Eight.  Sigh.  There’s always next year I guess.  Sunday morning we had brunch at our friend’s house for a laid-back 2nd birthday.  Can I just say that brunch is some of the BEST food ever?  Heather made a delicious egg and sausage bake and had a good variety of other foods.  Everything was delicious – and add in mimosas and life couldn’t be better.




Sunday afternoon I can a special coloring date with the girls.



And we wrapped up the weekend with a BBQ with some of our friends!  This was one of the best weekends I have had in a very long time and I am so thankful for this little bit of downtime before clinicals start :)  I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and see what life will be like when weekends are just weekends again and not the time for endless studying.  Life is pretty darn good :)

Final Thoughts: Didactic Year of PA School

Yesterday was a pretty amazing day.  I finished my didactic year of PA school.  When I started this journey in January of last year this day was a mere dot on the horizon.  I knew it was going to take innumerable hours of hard work, intense commitment, some tears, and maybe even a little pain.

Hillshire Natural's Sandwich

The Perfect Sandwich

A turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread.  That to me is the PERFECT sandwich and is certainly one of my “go-to” lunches when in a bind or when I need to feed the family on the weekend.  Making the perfect sandwich is easy – just layer on mustard, homemade mayo, spinach, turkey, and ham and […] more
