Week in Review: Babymoon

I'm participating again this week in a weekly linkup over on Clean Eats, Fast Feets called Week in Review. It's basically a chance to share what's gone on in the week in list form. The author of that blog just had a baby, so head on over to check out the other blogs and congratulate her!

This week a number of exciting things happened, most particularly because we're on a Babymoon.

Week In Review

1. Got my DEA number! It's $731 to apply for a DEA number. Becoming a legit doctor is so expensive.
2. Worked my last clinical day of residency (2 months of self-directed rotations to go).
3. Wore UNM scrubs for maybe the last time? I mean I could wear them again, but I don't need to, and that's exciting.
4. Drove 6 hours to Scottsdale, Arizona for a resort vacation long weekend.
5. Ate at about 7 new restaurants while on vacation.
6. Relaxed by the pool and floated in the lazy river.
7. Wore a bikini while 30 weeks pregnant. 
8. Went to the Desert Botanical Garden.
9. Walked around IKEA for some thoughts about furniture for when we move in a few months.
10. Was totally surprised to find a Warby Parker store at the shopping complex across from the resort and got my sunglasses adjusted. They've been falling off my face for months and I was nervous about entrusting them to just anyone to get fixed, but now they're perfect. The woman working there asked how long ago I had bought them because she'd never seen the style I had before. It's been discontinued. It has been close to 4 years I guess. They hold up really well.
11. Drank a Shirley Temple for the first time in years.
12. Got a pregnancy massage (my second of the pregnancy, hoping to budget for one more before we're done).
13. Watched cable TV in a hotel room, which always makes me feel like I'm on vacation.
14. Started Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner on my Kindle. It's pregnancy/new baby/relationship-focused and I'm about 25% into it and I'm really enjoying it.  

Here are some photos from the week:

Overall I had a very nice vacation and am looking forward to tackling some serious studying and other productive things in the coming week.

Thanks for reading, see you soon.

When I was in baltimore I was thinking about how to make my work trip feel more like a vacation. Answer = watch some cable TV in a hotel room. Nothing says vacation like flipping through far too many channels.

When I lived in Phoenix I loved going for lunch to Desert Roots Kitchen in Tempe. The staff and food are wonderful. Sounds like you had a great trip!
