On August 1st I turned 29! Even though I rang in my birthday on Nights, I had the following weekend off and planned to celebrate the last year of my twenties appropriately. I am overwhelmed by the love shown by my friends and family, and feel so blessed that so many people took the time to think of me all week long. 

I am so happy I am turning 29 too, Little Nate :-) 

Before leaving for work on my Birthday Eve, we celebrated at home with a delicious carryout Italian dinner and ice cream cake!

At work, my team for the evening surprised me with cake from the caf AND I got treats from our sweet L&D nurses. Later in the week, my daytime team brought even more delicious cake...

In addition to the birthday festivities, this was also a much-anticipated week for our household, because Nate's family was visiting from Michigan. Our house was full of children (7!), laughter, and chaos - it was wonderful. There is nothing better than being around family...

On Saturday, the plan was to put the kiddos to bed and hit the streets of Raleigh. My gifts were not finished yet, though, because in the afternoon my little brother Carey, who lives in DC, casually walked in our house and surprised me! I was so happy I cried! Shout out to the hubby for pulling it all together seamlessly...

And then we met up with some of my friends from work and we partied! So much fun!!

I know I say it all the time, but the years are going by so fast. I'm so thankful for everyone and everything in my life right now. 

It can be hard to stay focused on what is important when life gets hectic, but this birthday was a much needed reminder that no matter the distance in miles, I don't have to travel far to feel the love of those I care about. Everyone isn't blessed to see another year, and I don't want to ever take it for granted. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. xoxo

Izzy-Bee Is Three!

Hey guys!

Hope you had a great weekend. The summer is flying by and I can't believe we are already almost into August. Work has my free time extremely limited, but I wanted to share some photos from Isabelle's third birthday last weekend. She was so happy all day and did everything we asked of her - like putting on her party dress without a fight, "I love this dress!" she said LOL

She seems so big now! When she opened each gift, she paused and said, "it's just what I wanted" :swoon: She is such a little doll :-) 

The party was a great time with family and friends - my parents were able to make the trip down and spend time with the kids all week so they were in heaven. They even went to DC with them overnight to visit my brother.  

I felt so good about her party, I almost lost all the mommy guilt left over from two years ago during intern year when I didn't do anything big for her first birthday :sigh:

Here are some photo's from Isabelle's day :-D 

You're OBGYNs ladies and gentlemen...
My sweet co-residents
My parents made the trip too and were a HUGE help with getting the house ready for guests
Post-party nap, still our baby!

We love you Isabelle!

Happy Fourth!

Hey friends,

Hope you all are having an amazing Fourth!

It's been a bit cray cray over here. Today was a much needed day off since I started third year at our busiest hospital/service. The fam is doing great, but it has definitely been tough re-adjusting to me not being around much :tear: I'm trying to stay strong, but to be honest, it hasn't gotten any easier three years in...

I am doing my best to stay positive and keep my teams both at home and at work motivated.

In other news, it's also a Mode Story week! One of the ways we get pumped at work is with a great soundtrack. Below I share some of my favorite summer hits on my mommy playlist:
