11. I played soccer competitively for about 20 years of my life.

2nd the Answers to Elizabeth’s Questions:
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I love to write and wanted an enjoyable hobby for the many hours I spend solo while my hubby is off working hard in the hospital. What I didn’t know was how many other bloggers there were out there that I could relate to.  It has been such an amazing outlet for me.
2. Describe yourself in 5 words.
Outgoing, Supportive, Curious, Fun, Loving
3. What are your hobbies?
This blog, trying new restaurants and of course…experimenting with new cocktails.
4. What is your life goal?
To be surrounded by great family and friends every day, and for my hubby and I to one day have a loving, prosperous family of our own…residency hours not welcome!
5. Dogs vs cats?
Hands down Dogs.
6. If you could have one superhero power what would it be?
I would choose to turn into a fly on a wall anytime I want in any place I want.
7. What is your most embarrassing moment?
I am sure I have quite a few but one that sticks out is one that my mom will appreciate.  Senior year of high school, she picked me up in the morning from one of my college recruiting visits.  And in the car on the way home she was asking me about how it went and I was mid-sentence when I started to projectile vomit because I was so hungover.  She had to pull over so I could get out and get myself together on the side of the road.  That was not fun and neither was my headache for the rest of the day.  Luckily she didn’t say much but I was in enough pain.  If only that was the only time I threw up from drinking…
8. If you had to go back and relive one year, what would it be and why?
My wedding day was the best day of my life so far so I would probably go back to that day and relive the next year all over.  Even though the first year of residency started within it, we had a lot of firsts together that I would absolutely love to do over – including an unbelievable honeymoon in Tahiti.
9. If you could give up one bad habit, what would it be?
I used to be a Division 1 athlete and now I barely workout.  I really want to get back in shape but often times the glass of wine at the end of the day wins!
10. What is your dream vacation?
I truly feel like I have already had my dream vacation on our honeymoon in Bora Bora but if I had to choose another it would be on a different remote island where the sun shines all day, the beach is white, the water is clear and the cocktails are flowing.
11. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
Reality TV – Obsessed!

My questions for my nominees:
1. Why did you start blogging?
2. If you could be any animal in the world what would you pick and why?
3. What would you choose for your last meal on earth?

6. What is your favorite city in America?
7. What is your biggest downfall?

  1. I found your blog recently and really enjoy it! My husband is finishing medical school this Spring and also beginning a surgery residency. I appreciate your recruiting trip story–I played D1 soccer and had a similar experience on a recruiting trip. I did end up playing for that school though, based mostly on how fun the team was, haha.

    • Hi Cait! Thanks for stopping by. Happy for you that your hubby’s med school is almost over! It’s an exciting time. Match day is approaching. You must be excited. Where did you play soccer!? That is so funny! Recruiting trips were so fun…too fun, haha. Glad you are enjoying the blog!

      • I played at Umass and also out in San Diego. I definitely miss it, but when I tried to play pickup where we live now, I found it frustrating that I’m not as fit and think I would rather remember myself as a college athlete! Match day is 3 weeks away and it has been the most stressful process EVER! I turn to these Medical blogs for support because my friends just don’t understand the madness.
