After an amazing pre-birthday weekend, I had a workweek followed by a North Carolina weekend. On Saturday, I had some FDA-required training that is necessary before using a Eustachian Tube Dilating balloon. I ate at Chicken + Honey in downtown Raleigh where I ordered a chicken ‘n’ waffle- of course!
The next day, I went to New Bern, NC where I hung out with my sister-in-law and my adorable nephew. We had another delicious lunch and had a really nice day of hanging out. I was excited to see their place since they are moving to California soon(ish), where they will be down the road from us! Ok, ok, like 75 minutes down the road but better than the current distance!
I also had late night drinks with friends on my birthday, which was very enjoyable. And we stayed out until after midnight which had not been in the plans but was definitely ok!
After that, I had my focus on the Boston Marathon! Posts coming! In the meantime…
*My love for Popeye continues. I have cooled it on stalking the local SCPA pages, at least for now. I travel a little too much, unfortunately (for my dog loving aspirations. Otherwise, it’s cool!)
* My parents send the funniest cards.
*The Cristiano Ronaldo memes were so funny after a statue dedicated to him but of questionable likeness was unveiled!
*Sigh. Why did I spend 5 years of residency learning ENT surgery when I could have just gone to Lowe’s and powered up?
*I’m getting ready for a return of more protein, fewer refined carbs! This is a meal prep photo of my Trader J’s smoked trout salad, courtesy of my friend Jyostna!
*I need to keep my phone on higher charge levels.
