Finished week 3 of psych. Not much to report here, except I CANNOT WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK TO BE OVER so I can move on to my next rotation: the ED! One patient I had this week thought that he could win the lottery by writing down numbers on a piece of paper. So he had written from 1 to 68,000 on a really freaking long piece of paper. You can't make this stuff up.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been dying for a pair of boyfriend jeans. Well when I came across this post on Lindsey Thorne's blog I fell in love and knew I had to have those jeans! For only $52 [thanks, Nordstrom!] I had to pull the trigger. They haven't arrived on my doorstep yet, but I will let you know what I think. Fingers crossed!!

Last weekend at the beach we made the most delicious cocktail: the Ruby Relaxer. I mean, even the name sounds awesome.
What you need:
-Peach schnapps
-Malibu coconut rum
-Pineapple juice
-Cranberry juice

Mix 1 shot of peach schnapps, 1 shot of Malibu rum, and 1 shot of vodka. Add about 2ish shots of pineapple juice, and cranberry juice to taste. I added cherries for garnish. So delicious! Perfect for happy hour at the beach!

A few years ago for Christmas I got a really nice Nikon camera. I have been happy with it for what I've been using it for. Now that I'm trying to "vamp up" this blog and my photography, I decided it was time to pull the trigger on a better lens. After some researching and getting advice from a few ladies (thanks, Ashley!), I purchased a 50mm-1.8D lens. I cannot wait to start playing with it and learning to shoot brighter, more crisp pictures!

I'll be curious to know how you like the distressed parts. I love a good distressed jean, but only if it's not too distressed, you know? Bending around and up and down all day with the kids, I've had several pairs of distressed jeans just rip completely apart, lol! Happy Friday!:)
