Remember how we had family pictures taken last week? I don't have them back yet but she did send me this sneak peak and I'm loving it! Can't wait to see more in color. Love this man

I passed my geriatrics end-of-rotation exam! One step closer to graduation. Now onto pediatrics… I cannot wait!

We had a class cookout last night so I decided to whip up some homemade "salsa". Not exactly your normal salsa because it doesn't have any tomatoes in it, so I guess it's considered more of a bean-and-corn dip. Perfect for summer and so simple! All you need is:

-2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
-1 can of corn, drained
-1/2 green pepper
-1/2 red pepper
-1/2 purple onion
-1 bunch green onions
-1 tsp minced garlic
-1 tsp salt
-8 oz bottle Ken's Lite Olive Oil Vinaigrette

Mix together, chill, serve with chips.

I have been beating myself up over this whole blogging thing lately. You see, I don't like doing anything unless I'm doing it 110%, and I don't feel like I am giving that to my blog. Trying to juggle school and marriage and family and a semi-social life is hard. Nobody wants to hear me ramble on about studying congestive heart failure and which antibiotics are best to treat pneumonia. But this is what my life currently revolves around.

Luckily, my real-life turned blog friend Meghan has been encouraging me to keep it up. I am constantly texting her for blog help and advice! Thankfully, she has convinced me to just do my best on this blog, keeping in the back of my mind that I will have much more time to devote to it after graduation in December. I never want this blog to feel like a nuisance, so I will post when I can without stressing out when I can't.

Does anyone else swoon over Twine & Twig's necklaces? The other day I thought I'd reward myself with one of them until I saw the price tag. $230 for a necklace? WTF. I guess I will keep dreaming. If they were much cheaper this is the one I'd get:



  1. Your sneak peak is adorable! That bean salsa is one of my favorite recipes to make for any event! Don't give it up, I always love reading along :)! Xo, Stephanie

  2. Yum! That bean and corn dip looks delicious! :)

  3. I struggled with the same feeling about blogging. Then I realized that I created the blog for myself and no one else. I was doing a post everyday when I cut back to Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays and it's been great because im excited to share the posts because I have more time to put into my posts. Your doing a great job juggling all aspects in your life! Don't forget to give yourself a break every now and then.

  4. That dip looks delicious! I hear ya on the blogging thing. It is hard, but you are doing a great job!!

  5. The first photo is beautiful! Also, that dip looks yummy :)

  6. If you have any questions about Pediatric Cardiology just forward them all my way!

  7. Girl, I couldn't agree more with number 4- I basically wrote the same thing in my post today. It can be SO hard sometimes and I love blogging, but sometimes I just don't have the energy. Congrats on passing your test and you better load up on that Vitamin C before peds!! xo

  8. I love professional pictures. We usually get them done once a year, but now that I have my little guy we sometimes jump into one of his. ;)

  9. I agree that you should do you beat and not let blogging stress you out. Studying is definitely so much more important! Congrats on passing your exam!

  10. I loveee homemade salsa - that looks delicious!! Can't wait to see more family pictures - that one is so sweet!!

  11. Your salsa looks delicious! I'm going to have to save that recipe :) I've come to realize that blogging takes a lot of work and is definitely a lot harder when you're running dry of ideas. I've been slacking lately but it's always good to keep trying! Love reading your blog :)

  12. Love your picture! I am so happy you've decided to keep blogging. You're doing a great job! It's not easy and it is so time consuming, but it shouldn't consume your life! :) You're awesome! And love those necklaces too, but dang they are expensive!
