This weekend Pat and I are headed to Chicago to see my beautiful sister-in-law get married! It’s going to be so nice to catch up with family and friends. I love weddings! You can catch pics from our trip back to the Midwest in real time on Instagram.
This also marks the end of my first year of residency. I look back and I can’t even believe how much I’ve grown in the past year. I’m looking forward to the upcoming year because we have more responsibility and the patients are more complicated. I start out with two months of pediatric oncology patients, which should be intense and challenging.
Here are some things I’m loving from around the web:
Are you a Bay Area blogger? Come hang out at Blog Party! The next Blog Party is July 11th. I went to the first Blog Party and I’m still in touch with some of the lovely bloggers I met there. It was such a nice way to connect with other bloggers! Get the deets here. I hope to see all of your lovely faces there!
Claire had me at “marinated goat cheese“.
I want to use this woven folding chair technique on everything.
Make your own Mrs. Meyers hand soap.
Next up on my SF to do list – tour the fortune cookie factory in Chinatown.
A food stylists makes an earthworm look appetizing.
Om, nom, nom – salted nutella syrup.
An inside look at ways fashion bloggers edit their photos to look skinnier. There’s an app for that?
I love that article on photoshop! People go a little too far in how skinny they make themselves look. I also enjoyed that NPR article on the food stylist. I like the idea of serving non-native pests to keep their numbers down, but even with the fancy styling it still doesn’t sound very appetizing!
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Isn’t it crazy!? I had no idea that apps like that even existed!

It’s so funny, I went to do the fortune cooking factory tour with super high expectations and it’s really just a teeny tiny shop in a small alley. Not really sure what I was expecting! They just let us stand there for a bit, but wouldn’t let us go much further in. At least we got some fresh cookies from it! 🙂
No way, you already did it!? I haven’t explored Chinatown at all, so maybe I’ll just tack it on to a full day of activities.
