Private Practice Internship Week 1!

Hello friends! Guess what’s back in full force? Packing lunch! When I was interning at the hospital earlier this summer, I received $5 worth of meal tickets every day, so I got in the habit of just bringing something small (leftovers, a salad, whatever) and then just getting some snacks/side dishes at the hospital cafeteria to supplement it and Continue Reading …

Weekend Workouts + Bridal Hair

Thanks for all the sweet comments on my bridal shower post! I’m glad you all enjoyed the photos — it truly was a wonderful day. The whole weekend was awesome, actually — I loved getting to spend time with my BFFs! In addition to the shower festivities, we also went out to a fun dinner on Saturday night (at Me Jana in Courthouse, VA — a new Continue Reading …

Father’s Day, A Water Park & A Dinner Date

Late last week, I asked my dad what he wanted to do on Sunday for Father’s Day, and he replied: “Go paddle boarding again!” Sweeeeet. Clearly I was on board! Matt was out of town for the weekend on an epic guy’s weekend camping/canoeing trip, so it was just me and my dad this time. We had a blast and after about an hour of paddle boarding, we were Continue Reading …

Running Rock Creek Park & Free Yoga

Good morning! We had a stunning weekend weather-wise here in DC — a very nice reprieve after the past week of unbearable steaminess! I celebrated on Saturday morning by going for a run. :) My running buddy Sokphal and I decided to mix things up and go running in Rock Creek Park! I’d never run in Rock Creek before — it was pretty! There Continue Reading …

New Packed Lunches & Dinner Prep

Good morning! I’ve settled in to a new busy routine here in DC. I have to get up at 5:30 a.m. every day to get ready, eat breakfast, publish my blog/catch up on emails and make it to my internship by 7 a.m., but that means I’m home around 4 or so, which is nice. I’ve been using my time in the late afternoons before exercising and dinner and such Continue Reading …

DC by Foot & An Epic Picnic

Morning, friends! I’ve been having a wonderful weekend so far. The weather yesterday was stunning! Finally the humidity let up. As you guys know, while in Chapel Hill I was going to Franklin Street Yoga regularly (at least once per week, sometimes twice). Since moving back to DC a month ago I’ve only done yoga once, and boy does my body feel Continue Reading …

New Apartment Tour & A Run

Good morning, friends! It’s official — Matt and I are 100% unpacked and set up in our new apartment here in the DC area. Hooray! It’s so nice to have that done. Want the tour? :) We went from a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom in NC to a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom here in DC so we were a little worried about everything fitting, but between donating a lot of Continue Reading …

Goodbye, Biochem!

Guess what, friends? Today I have my very last exam of graduate school! Woohoo!!! Our biochem final exam is at noon. We had a review session at school yesterday, after which my classmate Maria and I stayed for a bit more studying, although we weren’t feeling very motivated. All of us are feeling rather wiped out at this point and tired of school, Continue Reading …
