Happy Balentimes!

Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you had a great time with your loved ones. I had a great weekend and it mostly centered around food! So I thought the food might tell the story for me!

My last management rotation date for my internship was on Friday, which also was a valentines party for the residents. Here are a few things I pitched in to make for the party...



 It was so cute to see the residents dancing and listening to some classic love songs. Aww!
I woke up on Saturday to a card and flowers from my love. How'd I get so lucky? We spent the rest of the day shopping and out to dinner. I always hear things like "Valentine's day is a hallmark holiday", yea that might be true and yeah we should show our love everyday but what's the harm in going a little overboard? I love love!

Today was Marc's niece and nephews joint birthday party and I got to make the cake. It was a lot of fun and didn't take too long. Just had to make sure no one tried to eat a seashell!

Tomorrow is my first day of clinical, wish me luck!

Snowshoe Sunday

Good Afternoon Friends!

I hope your weekend is treating you well. I feel like I can say mine was 50/50. Yesterday I got my first (AND ONLY) migraine, so the day was a wash.

Today was much better though, I went snowshoeing with Ashleigh!

We went to my favorite spot where you can see off cliffs  down to Lake Michigan.


It's pretty impressive, but much more so in person.
After freezing our tushies off, we went to Sven's Café in Bay View. What a great spot. The décor is great, the staff is very friendly and it isn't overwhelmingly packed. Great food too! I had the vegan chili, and Ashleigh got a yummy looking eggplant with Italian sausage soup. Two thumbs up for Sven's!
After lunch, we went to a really cool vintage shop. I wanted to buy everything!!!!!!! I bought Marc a scarf and a pin for Valentines day and I splurged on a few clothes items for myself.
Look how cute this dressing room is!!!

Here's the top and skirt I purchased. I love the color!
Here's the dress I bought (I tried it on over clothes in the store). I put my lab coat on over it as that's how I'd wear it for work. Add some legging and I'm good to go!

It's been a great day, I enjoyed spending time with my friend and I'm glad my hip felt ok through the day.
Have a good week!
