Friday Five (#43)

Ya’ll, this might be my favorite Five so far this year. First, I discovered Droplet. Their animations and pictures (see above) are some of my favorite that I have ever seen! And Droplet states off our Five today! 1. Droplet The mission of this group is great: too many women discontinue breastfeeding prematurely for reasons…

Friday Five (#42)

Hello weekend, I am so glad you’re here! I spent the week in orientation for the new job. Does anyone else always feel a little mentally exhausted learning a new system’s way of doing things? I’m looking forward to some couch time this weekend. Onto the Five. It was a busy week in the news….

Friday Five (#41)

Hey hey hey! Hope your week was great! Our week was full of more potty training, unpacking and organizing (in between all the mothering!). And so much baby drooling. Bless this little man. So much drool, not a tooth in sight, and smiles all the day long. This Five was really fun to put together….

5 Handy Provider Handouts!

Friday Friday Friday! Wahoo! Today is my last day in clinic at my current position and it’s bittersweet. I’m excited to move onto the next adventure but sad to leave behind some really awesome patients and co-workers. As I was packing up my office, I found some handouts I had forgotten about and wanted to…

Friday Five (#37)

Haaalllo and happy Friday! I hope your week was lovely wherever you are! We have been playing outside every possible minute because the weather has been spectacular in Alaska.

Friday Five (#34)

FRIDAY! It’s been a funny week here in Alaska. We had a few days of melting snow and icicles and sunshine – we could even see the actual ROAD! But then we got 3 more inches of snow. I’m ready for the big melt so the kids can go play outside and ride their bikes….
