Happy Monday folks! Today is pretty bitter sweet because I am officially off of vacation on on to surgery.  We had an amazing three weeks of slower paces (minus my on-campus week), vacations, and quality family time.  Now it’s time to put my nose to the grindstone and rock out these final four rotations because graduation is less than 6 months away!  Holy cow.  Any-who, I thought I would start this fine Monday off with a little survey for you guys with a current glimpse into my life 😉


Reading: First Aid for the Surgery Clerkship.  The First Aid series has been a favorite of mine throughout clinical rotations and so far my surgery book is proving to be just as good.  The physicians I am working with do a lot of reflux surgeries, hernia repairs, and gallbladder removals so I have been trying to learn more about those before starting today.  I am super nervous about this rotation!

First Aid for Surgery
Doing: As I am writing this Sunday night I just finished up our meal prep for the week.  I am not sure what my schedule is so at least having dinners prepared gives me some sense of calm.  We are having lasagna rolls, crockpot chicken taco chili, grilled chicken, and beef stew this week.


Meal Prep Sunday
Working On: My fitness!  I have been doing really well with my recent trainer from Ashley Horner.  I started doing Valor with Chris a couple weeks ago.  I got a little derailed last week due to a wicked head cold but I am hoping to get back on track this week.  My gym bag is ready to go after work today!


Watching: Who else is SO glad TV shows are back?!  I watched Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, and Scandal already.  Once Upon a Time came back last night and I have to figure out what other shows my DVR is going to be recording.  It’s a nice break between all the football Chris is watching 😉


Loving: My girls!  Cliche I know but everyday they teach me something new.  This weekend Emmie found a pair of My Little Pony pajamas that were supposed to be for her birthday.  I couldn’t keep them from her and she instantly got attached to the Pinkie Pie sleep mask.  And actually slept in it for awhile!  I mean seriously … it’s just too cute!  Bryn is a little rascal and is constantly getting into things.  She’s my wild child and has wild hair sometimes to go with it.  #MessyHairDontCare.

  A little known fact about me that you guys might not know is that I am originally from Wisconsin.

This is probably largely due […] more
