Standing Abs 277
When people think about working their abs the first things that come to mind are likely floor exercises. But today, we are defying the obvious and throwing caution to the wind! I bring you….a standing abdominal workout! I suppose this really is more of an oblique workout, but it uses […]

All smiles on L&D!
Each week on ObGyn we switch to a different service. I started in clinic and then spent my second week on labor and delivery (L&D). This meant both longer hours and a LOT more to learn! I got to scrub in on two C-section deliveries and saw three vaginal deliveries. […]

Life on Labor and Delivery

After a year long hiatus of teaching and research, I am officially back on rotations! While I was a little nervous about re-adjusting to this environment at first, I’m now just so excited to re-discover why I loved medicine in the first place I started ObGyn last week- which, for […]

Hopefully by now you’re not too sick of hearing about my wedding;) But this will pretty much be it for blog posts related to the wedding because the final missing piece I’d been waiting for has arrived: MY WEDDING VIDEO!!!! Honestly, I spent a lot of time debating about whether […]

All together! 4 of several more years of turkey trots with dad. 2
I can’t quite remember the first year I did a Turkey Trot. What I do remember is that it started with (and continues to involve) my dad. I’ve never considered myself much of a runner- and, honestly, I still don’t! I enjoy running 3-4 miles at a leisurely pace, and […]

Turkey Trot: The longstanding annual tradition

This year I’ve been lucky enough to work from home most Mondays. This usually means waking up at 6:30am for kickboxing at 7. This morning I just.couldn’t.do.it. I was so exhausted from such a fun weekend! On Thursday, we had a medical school party called Osteoblast (for those who don’t […]

I’ve reached the final installment of honeymoon posts! This one will be long since we packed as much as we possibly could into only 2 days. While we loved every second of this trip, we both agreed that we could’ve used another week in Istanbul- there is SO much to […]

Honeymoon Part IV: Istanbul


Temple 2
Most of what I’d heard about Athens before going was “eh.” Many people advised that we not spend more than one day there, and some even told us we could skip it all together. But how could you go to Greece and never see Athens? It seemed wrong, though we […]

Honeymoon Part III: Athens

I’ve been dreaming about Santorini as my honeymoon destination for years. Probably before I’d even met my husband. It’s the quintessential location for honeymooners and now that I’ve been there I can say from experience that it.is.amazing. This was definitely the best part of our trip! We arrived in the […]
