  • What Really Causes Heart Disease

    We had a professor this past year that went on rants…many, many rants….in a style similar to this… One such rant I remember being about how the problem with our eating habits as a country isn’t due to fat intake- but it is “a result of those sugar cereals replacing bacon and eggs for breakfast”. […]

  • Lessons from the Zoo

    …because I think about everything… Ha! We went to the zoo for Mother’s Day, mainly because Little Bit has been rather obsessed with monkeys lately. “Oh-Ah-Ah-Oh” is the sound she makes when she sees one or if you talk about them. It’s fantastic. She didn’t nap AT ALL (in fact, this is as much rest […]

  • It is Finished.

    It is finished. Year one of medical school is over…along with year one of motherhood. Talk about Bittersweet at its finest. First things first. Cheese sticks and Dr. Pepper from Sonic (because that’s how I roll). Now that I’m sitting on my couch—in a completely quiet house—you would think that I would be running around […]

  • 23 and 1/2 hours

    In Bounding Into Health I talked about how important it is that we take care of ourselves. So practically, what does that look like? Being in medical school, I like evidence. Good evidence. I also like to prevent disease as much as possible. So when asked what is the number 1 thing that can not […]

  • Finals Start in 9 Hours…

    And I had to perform my first rectal exam today. What an interesting start to finals week. (No worries, I’m not spending a lot of time blogging right now- though it would be a very nice distraction…) I don’t remember where this is from, so don’t give me credit for such awesomeness. Haha apparently I […]

  • Let’s start with Bill. (From the Archives)

    Well, Finals start Tuesday. For those of you who are new to the blog, sorry that I’m about to drop off the face of the planet!!! I felt like this post would be appropriate considering the freak out that is happening in my mind right now….and now….and now….but this too shall pass. Enjoy!   First, […]

  • 25


    Well, today I turn 25. I know I’m still young, no worries. (This isn’t going to be a sad gripe-fest. Really.) But I also know that I’m no longer in my early 20’s And my baby turns 1 in a few weeks. I suppose I am officially, undeniably an adult. I remember being in various […]

  • Do It Anyway

    I couldn’t really think of anything to say today. When that happens, there is usually something that someone else has said that needs to be said again, and I should stop rambling–kind of like the whole “80-20 Rule“. (Get used to me saying redundant things like that, because I love it.) Most of you have […]

  • A Drink in the Desert

    Have you ever been alone with God? REALLY been alone with God. No music. No message. Just you and Him. “When they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples.” Mark 4:34 “Our solitude with Him. Jesus does not take us alone and expound things to us all the time; He expounds things to […]

  • All Things Easter

    Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”. So why not Easter? Easter is pretty much a BIG deal. And it’s all about Life…especially the life that we can have through Jesus. (Warning: Lots of Clicking […]
