Turn It Up Tuesday #136

This is my last week in my surgery rotation. I've seen so many amazing surgeries, there's no way to choose a favorite. I definitely enjoy the immediate satisfaction of completing a surgery and knowing the patient will feel much better after he or she makes it out of the recovery phase. We do watch our hospital patients for a few days, and it's really gratifying to see people back in the office in regular clothes, hair brushed, looking like healthy people again. That's when you know surgery was the right choice.

This rotation was quite demanding, so I haven't had a lot of time to devote to the blog. But, I'm always happy to see what you all have been working on each week. And, now that I'm done with scrubbing in for a few weeks, maybe I can get back to cooking! Have a great week!

I'm proud to announce that I did NOT file my taxes today, on the deadline. I was early. I filed them last night. Did I mention I'm a procrastinator?

Last week there were so many great recipes, it was really hard to pick two to feature. I can't wait to see what everyone is going to share this week.

So, it's the last week to file your taxes, are you ready? I'm not. That's right, I am a textbook procrastinator. I haven't even started yet, so you know what I'll be doing this weekend. I may have to check out just a few of the fun links from this party in between calculating my deductions, just for a calculation break, right?  What are your plans for the week? 

After sharing your link here, be sure to stop by my Facebook page to say "hi" and let me know what you shared. I love to promote other bloggers. Have a great week!

Turn It Up Tuesday #133

I know it's just warming up in the rest of the country, and there were even a few snowstorms last week. But, it's getting hot and humid here in SW Florida already. Not comforting if you're digging out from last week's storm, but know that we're sweeping our pools and getting out the sunscreen. HA HA. Sorry, that's not very nice of me. But, really, you'll be laughing this summer while we're steaming and fighting off the fire ants.

 So, what's everyone been up to this week? I can't wait to see what you're sharing.

Turn Up Tuesday #132

I hope you all had a great Easter! We had some lovely ideas in last week's link up for recipes and cute decorations. I took the boys to the local park and on a long enough walk that my 4-year old passed out within minutes of driving home. That's a successful park visit!
On another note, this week we'll be celebrating the start of Spring; hopefully, you have some great weather to start off the Spring. If you don't, then we hope it comes soon!

Happy Spring

Blueberry Banana Smoothie


Grayson is on a frozen blueberry kick these days. It's his dessert of choice.

Yep. Frozen blueberries.

In a bowl.

Which he eats with his fingers. His messy, purple stained fingers.

But, it's a healthy treat, and he looks super cute with those purple stained fingers, so I usually let him have them.

Happy Spring! The boys and I planted new annuals around our mailbox yesterday. The bright colors at the end of the driveway are so pretty. I'm sure they would cheer me up on my way to work in the morning, if it wasn't dark out when I left today. That's right, I'm back to early mornings on rotation. Surgery typically starts at 7:30, so I have to be there at least an hour before then. But, I did get to observe brain surgery today, so it's worth it. 

What new and exciting things are you working on this week? Link up and share your great ideas for recipes, DIY projects, and parenting and lifestyle essays. I love seeing all of the fresh ideas you have!

Happy Easter
