Going on in April

Monday, May 4th, 2015

watching the buds turn into flowers and leaves. And learning about everything that’s already planted in our yard. I just picked purple tulips from the garden for a bouquet, and there are still many mystery flowers we’re waiting to see bloom. ripping up sod in preparation for our veggie gardens and our prairie grass/wildflower garden. […]

Going On in February

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

eating Mexican food for Husby’s birthday. A few years ago, instead of cake he requested a birthday flan. It’s been tradition ever since. (Although I’m still perfecting my recipe. This year’s was a bit sloppy.) We preceeded the flan with kale, butternut squash and mushroom enchiladas for dinner. listening to podcasts all the time, and also […]

7 things: summer 2014 faves

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

What’s this? A new 7 things post? Who’d of thunk? But here I find myself, freshly on the other side of 30. New city. New baby. New blog. With all these new things in my life I thought I’d offer up a list of my tried-and-true summer faves for a little bit of balance. 1. […]

Happy May Day

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

The weekend of or just after May 1st was always one of my favorites growing up. April in MN tends to still be pretty chilly, with the occasional snow storm – because it is, after all, “Minnesnowta”. But May, May is when it actually gets warm, when you’re actually safe to tuck your winter clothes […]

I’m thankful for the wonderful friends husby (and me by proxy) have made during med school. And the chance to eat fancy cheese and laugh with many of them tonight.

pillow fluffing

Friday, October 18th, 2013

The other day I posited to husby that the baby was treating my bladder like a pillow. When it would suddenly empty out, the babe would try to fluff it back up right away, resulting in me having to pee right after having just peed. Husby thinks I’m crediting the fetus with too much cognition […]

sugar sugar

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Number one reason husby knows the babe is his: my ridiculous sweets craving the past few months. Normally I’m like meh. Maybe a bite or two of some dark chocolate, but otherwise please pass the pretzels. Give me something salty and crunchy, preferably with something cheesy to dip it into and I’m a pig. But […]

weekend update

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

So I know this looks bad. I set myself a goal of writing every day for a month and then after just 3 days I basically go MIA for 5 days. Chalk it up to a wonderful visit from a Peace Corps friend for the weekend, a last minute dinner with my pilot friend in […]

18 months ago

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Eighteen months ago husby and I got married. Up until this point I haven’t written about it or shared the photos with anyone other than a few close family members. Because it was perfect. And I didn’t want anything to tarnish the glowy-ness of the memories of that moment and the days surrounding it. And […]

Are you married to a med student? Or dating one? Or thinking about dating one? If so, you might be interested in the following. 1. Med school prom is just as fun as high school prom was, if not more. Dresses, dinner, drinks, dancing, and bow ties. And knowing that at the end of the […]
