I asked to go to the Cheesecake Factory for my birthday dinner. Food is not something extraordinary over there -- but the cheesecake is amazing. Whenever we pass by the fashion mall, the children talk about how I asked to go to the cheesecake factory for my birthday. Kids' memories are amazing.

 I love to dance. I started at a young age. I was only 3 or 4 years old and I was already part of the elementary school dance program.  I also married a guy who loves to dance. It's a must (!)

It is not a big shock that I am a dance mom.

We love you.

1. Am I the only one who does not sleep when something is not going so well at work? And for my work, it's not just an incomplete spreadsheet (sorry hubs, you and your spreadsheets) but usually when "something" is not well at my work ~~ it means the patient is not doing well. 

Don't they say, leave your work problems at work?
Hang your white coat at the doorway, type of thing?
well, sorry but it's hard. 


what highschoolers are doing nowadays


A mom told me *this (see convo below) and I about slipped off my chair. I know things like this happen all over our highschools nationwide/worldwide. But I refuse to believe the statistics. 

She said: "I was driving my son around with his friends to/from a party. He must be oblivious but I told him afterwards that his friends were high. He was surprised."

Life, unscripted, is documented on snapchat. If the blog is not enough for you and you'd like to see the REAL us (well... it could be "Real-er" but nobody wants to see all that), follow us on snapchat. The children love the filters. They love sending videos to their Lola and cousin.


are you a complainer? or you try to find the silver lining?

I try to surround myself with like-minded folks. However, in my field, I am surrounded by a lot of different folks. that's fine. I like diversity. I have nothing against people with different faiths and beliefs. 

I have worked with folks who are cheerful and happy about their job.
I have worked with folks who came in every single day with a sour face and what came out of their mouths are complaints.  These are not awful nurses or doctors etc. They are good at what they do. 

I sit and ponder what's different about them and me... and why I chose to be happy. Why I choose to be positive.


please don't make me feel bad that my children go to daycare

Dress, thrifted
Saint Laurent clutch, splurge here or save here


I totally had the mommy guilt sending my infant and toddler to the daycare when I thought "I should" be a housewife/stay at home mom. I felt so bad that i was taking care of other children instead of mine...

This skirt finally fits me. YAAASSSS!!!

I got this skirt with my BR $15 off birthday coupon last year. I was 8.5 mos pregnant with Lucy. I was tired of buying loose clothes. I saw this lovely  white highwaist pencil skirt. With the40% off sale and my birthday coupon, I could not pass it up. Even though it was not even going past my big hips. 

By the time my uterus shrunk to its prenatal size (notice, I said uterus... not my actual stomach or mommy pooch), it was already September and the skirt still won't zip! October, November, December came. I placed the skirt in my summer pile. Who wants to wear white when it's dark and gloomy and snowing?

Happy Friday!

1. This will be an outfit post  + seven quick takes ~~~ because I have a lot of OOTD photos waiting to be published. I don't want it to be October and I am posting a summer outfit.

 Tonight will be a TRUE FriDATE with Lucy.  Too bad we cannot go to movie dates anymore. Ms. Lucy does not sleep during movies anymore.

Daniel's award ceremony on Saturday morning is moved to Tuesday night (hurrah! we can sleep in instead of going to the baseball field at 8:45a!)


little ballerina's first dance recital


Isabel had her first ballet recital this weekend. She danced "twinkle twinkle little star" wearing her pretty blue tutu and wings and wand. Her releve and hands were perfect. Her teachers say "She's a natural."

She has her parents' genes... And her mama's love for dancing and ballet and all things pretty!

do i have what it takes to be a doctor and a mum?

obnoxious affiliate links all over this post.

written a few days ago....
It's a tough day today.

I wanted to be present for my littles. But I'm overwhelmed with my to-dos. Do this. Do that. Do more. Here and there. 

 I also get this anxiety building up when they all say: mama here. Mama now. Mama please. (Sometimes there's not even a please in there).  Then add a screaming baby crawling her way towards my feet. Lucy found her voice/lungs these past few days.

work wear {May edition; 7QT}

I want to join the fun over at Kelly's so I am typing a quick 7QT post with ----------- what else? OUTFITS! Don't be surprised.

Here's what I wore to work in the month of May.

1. Pink top + ruffle trumpet skirt.


2. Skater skirt + old top
I don't wear this skirt in clinic -- why because once I sit, I regret wearing it.
I wore this skirt while rounding over a weekend. I don't have to sit in front of the patients/parents when doing hospital rounds.
