5 on Friday

I'm back! I'm sure the 5 of you who read my blog were really concerned. ;) While everyone was enjoying their time off from work due to the ice and snow we got I was forced to be at work. Not fun.



{ONE} If you follow me on instagram then you saw this that was my bed on Tuesday.

I have a new level of empathy for our patients after sleeping in this bed. The beds are hard as rocks and every other minute there was a "Dr. So and So 5678 , Dr. So and So 5678" on the loud intercom. Everyone was beyond sleep deprived. I slept a whole 2 hours on Tuesday and had to work that night. We all missed our families like crazy. I was able to come home for 5 hours on Wednesday but had to be back at the hospital by 3 pm and work that night. But that's all over with and now I'm home and majorly catching up on sleep.



{TWO} Although I had to work with no sleep this week, I am getting Sunday night off so we're having a few friends over for the Super Bowl. I don't watch football but I love the commercials. I plan on making these yummy Ham and Swiss Hawaiian Rolls that have been passed along on Pinterest forever.
Mouth watering!


{THREE} If you've been a fan of the Madewell Transport tote then I have a treat for you. Madewell just came out with the Mini Transport tote!



It's so freaking cute I love it! I love having a big tote bag to carry everyday but sometimes you just need a good crossbody when you travel or need to have your hands free. It comes in black and brown. 



{FOUR} Wednesday was the little lady's birthday.

I know she doesn't read my blog or even know how to work a computer, but I wanted to give her a belated Happy Birthday! How old she is you ask? I actually don't know. A lady never tells her age! All the girls in my family are taking her out to lunch on Saturday. Little Mimi is still kicking it!



{FOUR} This might be a gross one but this has been my savior lately
I thought at one time I was blessed with the gift of not being able to smell, trust me being a nurse that is a gift, but then I realized no, I'm just constantly congested. Being a mouth breather isn't fun and I was sick of my daily Zyrtec not doing a thing. I was hesitant to use this rinse, that whole amoebo thing freaked me out. But after the first use I was in heaven. I have a pretty deviated septum so it doesn't always work like it should, but just putting the salt water up into your sinuses is better than nothing. If you have sinus congestion I highly recommend this. I was told to buy this over the Neti Pot. I found this at Target for $10.



{FIVE} Theo and I are always looking for movies to watch on Netflix. We found this one and decided to watch it for it's great cast

It was just ok. Nothing really happened. Basically Olivia Wilde and Ron Livingston ( I always call him Jack Burger) are a couple and just aren't mean't for each other. The guy from New Girl and Anna Kendrick are a couple and aren't meant for each other either. They're all friends and one day Anna and Burger kiss because they're the ones who are meant to be. New Girl guy and Olivia work together and constantly flirt so you're always rooting for them to get together. I mean just nothing really goes on. But if you have Netflix it's worth checking out.

  2. Oh girl I feel your pain about work!! I had to go in at 11pm and it took me 3x as long as it normally does! I was terrified! But I braved the roads the next morning to get home to my baby. They would have had to tie me down to get me to stay there! ( I also didn't have to be back the next night.) We did have some nurses who stayed the night though. Awful. Glad you are finally home!! And I hope you start feeling better soon!!

  9. Gah, that is no fun that you had to work during all of that. Especially since you had to "sleep" at the hospital. Those ham sliders look amazing and I know they will be super tasty. I am having the hardest time deciding on what to make for Sunday!!

  22. I guess I am scared I'll drown in the sinus rinse stuff. I have that same product at home, and seriously, I am scared to try it.

    Glad you're home and safe! Enjoy your weekend!

  25. Sorry you were stuck at the hospital in the storm! I've tried a neti pot but never that spray and will definitely pick some up on the next target run to get me through the rest of these winter germs! And I'm bummed about that movie because I was looking forward to checking it out (for the cast alone). Enjoy your Super Bowl party!

  26. I had to read your "One" like four times not going to lie to make sure you weren't in the hospital like not okay and then I saw had to work the next night and it all came together for this slow one over here! I wish I was blessed with no smell....it would have been very helpful for my last 3 patients of the day. I totally said to myself that's Berger! Poor guy he will always been known for the one who broke up with Carey on a Post It note! Hope you have a good weekend!

  28. sinus rinses are weird but they DO WORK. i use hydrasense which is similar but it sprays a gentle saline mist. i also use it for my 5yr old when she's sick - clears her right up.
