I blame all of this on surgery. I just finished my surgical specialty week, which was equally awe-inspiring and exhausting. I spent two days in cardiothoracic surgery and got to be in my first open heart, one day in plastic surgery where I assisted in some reconstructions for breast cancer patients, and the last part of the week in neurosurgery where I saw an awake craniotomy (but more on that in a later post).
I have also been studying nonstop (lots of gastrointestinal loveliness a.k.a. butts and guts) and I'm starting to go a little crazy (I don't know how I did this every weekend during my first and second year of medical school). I have to guiltily admit that I am way too excited to go to Mass tonight because of the break from studying (and of course I should be excited to go to Mass because it's Mass).
And on to the outfit. It all started with this pin and then I watched this sweatshirt dress forevah until it went on sale. The size left on sale was slightly too big for me, but I justified it because a) it is super comfy b) and I can still wear it to the hospital c) its looseness is disguised with a cardi and d) most importantly, I think it will be a great maternity dress when the time comes. You can never be too prepared right? Also, I am pretty sure that this cardigan is 40% off right now and it doesn't get much better than a pattern that is a blend of polka dots and animal print. I almost added my green belt to the mix, but sometimes simpler is better.
